@SurpriZe

I can't think of any individual card I'm missing out on due to cost concerns.

Swiftfoot Boots, Champion's Helm, and Hammer of Nazahn are the go-to early tutor targets. Keeping removal off of Balan is important.

If my opening hand is slow or land-light, Sword of the Animist will likely be tutored for instead.

Sun Titan already fills the same role Auriok Survivors would. I want to keep the amount of 6+cmc cards in the deck as low as possible.


@Littlepoot

Swiftfoot Boots, Champion's Helm, or Hammer of Nazahn. Keeping removal off of Balan is important.

With slower/land light opening hands, I'll likely burn the first tutor on Sword of the Animist.


@Ninja_skin

This deck doesn't want Auras. They don't give Balan double strike and they don't play well with protection.

Champion of Lambholt Works really well with token builds, making your creatures unblockable. Your commander may get removed a few times, so having more protection could be good. Champion's Helm for hexproof and Darksteel Plate for indestructible.

I can see a very easy argument being made for Grafted Exoskeleton and Champion's Helm. Strata Scythe and Masterwork of Ingenuity can both serve Angry Akroma very well.

Interesting build. I haven't considered Arcades as a combo enabler so this is pretty cool. However, I think that your deck is a bit unfocused. It looks like your are caught between beatdown and combo. I'd pick a focus and go hard into that.

Jeskai Barricade, Ghostway, Momentary Blink, Ghostly Flicker, and Champion's Helm are all great additional ways to protect things. Another pet card of mine that I am considering for my Arcades list for protection + value is Cloud Cover.

I am surprised to not see either Wall of Kelp or Deadeye Navigator in the list. The additional value either provide is ridiculous.

Mnemonic Wall seems like an auto include in this list.

Sun Titan is also great since most walls cost under 3 cmc and it hits over 30 of your permanents. The same could be said for Eternal Witness since you already have a blink theme.

Doorkeeper is cute but it will never generate enough value to mill someone out in a 4 player 100 card format by itself...

If you want other ideas you can check out my Arcades list here. It follows the beatdown track more, but it might provide you with some ideas.

Balzeron: First of all I would like to say that I am honored that my deck has helped inspire your deck building. Secondly, I have some responses to you comments below:

Amaranthine Wall and Hornet Nest are ones that I am still considering. The indestructibility is definitely a nice ability and being able to make a bunch of 1/1 flying death touchers when someone blocks the nest is pretty awesome.

Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, and Mindbender Spores are all great cards if you are going a more defensive route. I chose to exclude them because I am a more aggressive list and I wanted big (4 toughness or greater), cheap walls.

Hover Barrier, Monastery Flock, Wall of Air, and Living Wall could all easily be swapped in here and are a preference choice if you are worried about fliers.

My deck personally doesn't want cards like Manor Gargoyle, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Woolly Razorback, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, or Fortified Area as all of these cards either have power greater than 2 or pump my creatures power. I rely heavily on staying at 2 power or less so I can abuse Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.

The same goes for Doorkeeper. Mill is already hard enough to pull off with a dedicated mill deck in EDH because decks are large and there are 3 opponents. I'd rather play either larger walls or defenders with more relevant abilities.

The banding suggestions are interesting. I had to re-read the rules on banding and I did not realize it also affects attacking creatures. Those could be interesting, I'll have to think about that.

Champion's Helm is a great suggestion. Wave of Reckoning is a good board wipe for Arcades, however, I feel that the 4 I have all have a bit more upside.

Spidersilk Armor and Tower Defense are awesome with Arcades and may very well end up in my final list. Right now I want to try out Hold the Gates over Spidersilk Armor as it has a higher upside and I already have a number of answers for fliers (Wonder, Angelic Wall, Wall of Tanglecord, Wall of Denial and Arcades himself). Since this list is aggressive, I think vigilance is actually a more impactful keyword in my deck. I already have a pseudo Tower Defense in Defender of the Order. I don't think Defender is particularly better than the Defense, but I have an old foil of it from Legions which I just really want to play.

Thanks for the comments and if you ever want another pair of eyes on your deck, let me know.

This is actually a deck I really want to build, and know nothing about making a commander deck, so I'm keeping a very close eye on this deck! Some card suggestions/ideas I personally have would be:

Amaranthine Wall, I played this wall in a draft game a few weeks ago and the indestructible ability pretty much won the game for me by itself, and is what inspired me to think about this kind of deck. Manor Gargoyle is another good choice for this.

Champion's Helm, Good equipment to keep our commander safe

Doorkeeper, the mill potential is pretty high here

Ezuri, Claw of Progress, since so many walls have 0 power,

Wave of Reckoning, as another board wipe

Woolly Razorback, doesn't have defender, but is cheap, becomes a 7/7, and can block literally any amount of damage 3 times

Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Monastery Flock, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, Wall of Air, Spidersilk Armor Tower Defense as flying blockers, as this deck seems really open to flying

Shield Bearer, Wall of Caltrops, Wall of Shields, Fortified Area, Baton of Morale, Helm of Chatzuk, Formation, Remember banding? I used to love banding! I think banding would compliment a wall deck very well. Being able to dictate where your opponents damage goes is a big plus I think

Hornet Nest, Living Wall,Mindbender Spores, are other good additions.

What do you think of these suggestions? I really want to buy the cards for a deck like this soon, and your deck is a huge inspiration to me.
