Dazzling Ramparts Discussion

My question in regards to this deck is why Arcades, the Strategist instead of another bant commander such as Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Arcades synergizes with defender cards. Of which you have only 1, which is Dragon Throne of Tarkir.

If you want to use Arcades, I recommend more defender cards such as: Tree of Redemption, Ageless Sentinels, Wall of Blossoms, Colossus of Akros, Golden Guardian  Flip, Hornet Nest, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Sylvan Caryatid, Wall of Reverence, Amaranthine Wall, Assault Formation, Carven Caryatid, Dazzling Ramparts, Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Just to name a few.

I also recommend as many cards that prevent your opponents from attacking you as possible: Windborn Muse, Norn's Annex, etc.

As well as cards like Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Empyrial Archangel, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Good luck to you!

Bxbx Thank you for your suggestions. I haven't had the feeling that I may have too many lands on my hand, yet. But I will definitely pay more attention to this issue during my next games! I'm very torn because of Wall of Kelp. Like plasmor99 said. it isn't a bad card but it never brought me any value ehen I tested it. I'll probably give it some more chances.

Darkshadow327 Thank you for your suggestions. That's why I have Masako the Humorless in the Deck. She gives great value for her cmc and also has flash. I've removed Oathsworn Giant from the list due to his high cmc but he will probably make a return some day. Also maye one of the enchantments you suggested. Dazzling Ramparts is also not in here because of it's high cmc, but I'll add it to suggestions. Bant Charm is a great card as you mentioned it and I would also advise it to everybody, but we agreed to not use cards like this who put Commander on the bottom of our Decks in our playgroup. I'll add it to the primer though.

manticoreknightThank you for your suggestions. I haven't been in the situation where I couldn't have countered a critical boardwipe. But I will keep your cards in mind!

goblinguiderevealplsThank you for your suggestions. There aren't many flying creatures in my playgroup, that's why I didn't add Spidersilk Armor and rely only on the defenders with flying. I don't use normal "tribal" cards like Urza's Incubator, Kindred Discovery or Herald’s Horn because only around half the creatures with defender are Walls. I wouldn't get that much out of the cards, being mostly a semi-dead card. As you are darwing a lot of cards and due to the low mana costs of defenders and the other cards in general, I renounced of the mana artifacts since I never had a lot of trouble. But I'll add Sylvan Caryatid to the primer under the "Fast Mana Base" tab, since I overlooked her and it's a great suggestion.

Giving your walls vigilance is somethings that is a must with these decks I feel like. While Arcades allows your walls to attack with awesome power, we still can't forget one thing: Creatures with defender are some of the best blockers out there. For this I'd recommend cards like Brave the Sands, Oathsworn Giant, Heliod, God of the Sun, and Serra's Blessing (you could also do Akroma's Memorial if you are feeling extra mean).

Dazzling Ramparts is a good way to tap down dangerous creatures/commanders.

Bant Charm is also good. It can tuck a commander, counter a spell, or take something out. Insidious Will is also good. You have the option of countering something, or even better (by better I mean hilarious), turning someone's removal spell targeting Arcades or something like that and taking out their commander.

Just some of my thoughts.

Hmm.. for the possible mini-currency theme: Reparations? Is defensible as a card too : )

Dazzling Ramparts seems fairly weak.
