Artifact Creature — Wall
Defender (This creature can't attack.)
Tap: Target creature gets +0/+4 until end of turn.
Crenellated Wall Discussion
1 month ago
Well, I think that Armadillo Cloak isn't that necessary as Arcades' deck is very defensive and doesn't need lifelink. Same thing with Crenellated Wall - for +0/+4 boost from artifact without immediate impact on the board besides drawing card with Arcades? For me it would be better to add classic Tower Defense just because it affects every defender and can be used as combat trick so with 2 walls connecting with opponent you net 10 extra damage for .
Also I prefer using cards that blink or counter boardwipes (besides Heroic Intervention - saved me so many times <3) because hexproof won't save everything you have when someone casts boardwipe. And THAT'S the moment when sac outlets really shine because when someone tries to screw you big time you just gain resources from sacrificed permaments (which would die anyway) to rebuild ASAP. But that's just meta call if your meta tries to squeeze Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Reality Shift , etc. in every deck humanly possible then I understand. However, in this case they can be used when you run out of counter/hexproof cards so you break even from losing card on board.

The Professor has a good video on building a 3 color mana base; I suggest there as a starting point. As for cards,:
Cyclonic Rift is a must if you are playing blue, and a few cantrips and counterspells are useful too.
As for Arcades specific cards, consider Angelic Shield, Assault Formation, Belbe's Armor, Castle, Builder's Blessing, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Crenellated Wall, Overgrown Battlement, and Sunscape Familiar

Thank you joecool1299 for your opinions and suggestions in regards to our collection. I will try to explain and answer your concerns to the best of my ability.
Dragon Throne of Tarkir I personally have no excuse for this as to why it was not included. Must have been overlooked. The best Wall CEO must have the best chair to sit on.
Crenellated Wall We had this during our first wave stock but surprised as well not to see it. Will take care of that as soon as possible. Does not need additional tempering and improves wall efficiency.
Shield Sphere We were not informed the existence of such wall. Some of our employees are new so it is possible that it was not known to them.
Wall of Nets I agree this is mandatory for the various annoyances that run rampant along our aisles.
Panharmonicon Though it is true that this will push value further, we do feel that it may not be as consistent as we think. But will see to its use after we run more tests.
Rolling Stones It may be redundant but there are times our CEO may not be around and away for his business meetings so it is a way to continue wall production.
Shield of the Oversoul This is mainly used as an ego boost as he is frequently bullied by his cousins and siblings. After therapy we can consider its recall.
All these will be addressed during this meeting and changes may bee implemented within a day or two after the meeting has concluded. One again, thank you.

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Arcades' Walls and Wares Emporium. Of all the new wall establishment that have been popping up recently, yours has the best selection of walls and accessories I've seen.
That said, I was very disappointed to not find a Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Not only is it hilarious, it gives Arcades a power boost and works well with your vigilance effects. Crenellated Wall is also something I was surprised not to see. Most Emporiums have them front and center.
I also question the need of the Rolling Stones. They seem redundant with Arcades and they scared Mr poofypants. I also believe that Shield of the Oversoul is far too gaudy and doesn't quite do enough for the disadvantage . I recommend sticking with a good pair of Lightning Greaves.
That said I give this establishment 5 stars and will come again.

I run a version that also uses the fatties without defender. See it here in case you want some inspiration.
Did you consider Crenellated Wall already? It fits the theme :)

I like Doran as a casual Commander. Good old 'stomp em in the face' damage deck. People like to play against it here, cause there is no combo finishes. They see their end coming, eventually.
If you want to see my deck, then click here
My recommendations for you would be the following cards:
- Bastion Protector
- Crenellated Wall
- Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
- Eidolon of Rhetoric
- Aura Shards
- Retribution of the Meek
Hope it helps you :)

Slaughter the Strong is a nice new card to put in a deck like this one.
Meekstone is a nice way to lock down attackers (and blockers)
No data for this card yet.
