PauperPower Wall of Nets is a good one don't know how I missed that. Yes Freed from the Real does work for mana but not for infinite damage like Pemmin's Aura, and i'm already unsure about keeping it in. Geist of the Archives is already in and i'm not feeling Drift of Phantasms
Thanks for the suggestions i'll definitely put Wall of Nets in.

Freed from the Real is another combo with Axebane.
Also Belligerent Brontodon is another Assault Formation effect.

Ok looking this build over in some more detial you have Axebane Guardian but missing the Overgrown Battlement for even more mana ramp. I also think you should put in Fog Bank it is great card for just holding the line but would not be one of your attackers
Geist of the Archives lets you scry 1 at upkeep and another one to look at Ludevic's Test Subject Flip you can transform it when you are ready by spending mana on counters then goes from am 0/3 wall to a 13/13 trample Horror just a few options
Other ones that can be helpful Cathedral Membrane
Hope that helps

Possible cards to add: Island, Wall of Mist, Orator of Ojutai, Nivix Barrier, Monastery Flock, Jeskai Barricade, Geist of the Archives, Dragon's Eye Sentry, Doorkeeper, Sylvan Caryatid, Profaner of the Dead, Triton Tactics, Abzan Beastmaster, Bastion Protector, Lightning Greaves, Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, Valorous Stance, Dive Down, Mizzium Skin, Sight of the Scalelords, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Spectra Ward, Whispersilk Cloak, and Oblation.
That's about all I got for now. Basically, more creatures, keep Arcades safe, better cards. There are more cards that are pullable too but the ones above really should go at the very least for more creatures. Pass the message along.

Looked through all defenders in your colors. Here are some you dont have rn:

Slagwurm Armor:I like the card, but the problem is I'd have to take a card out, any idea what card(s) I should take out?
Oathsworn Giant:It is a nice anthem effect, but since it is on a creature it'll get removed easily. I'd rather play an enchantment or artifact.
Forbidding Watchtower: Definitely! I love myself some flavor!
Geist of the Archives: Depends if I'll find a wall to take out.
Sight of the Scalelords:This is what I meant with the oathsworn giant. Nice card.
Forgotten Ancient: But he doesn't have defender though.
Bramble Sovereign: I already thought about this one, but it will depend if I want to spend the money on it.

The list is a lot larger than I had first intended it when I wanted to comment... Anyway, seeing as how I'm thinking of building an Arcades myself, I thought I'd share some cards of interest !
Wall of Junk (card draw)
Living Wall (resilient)
Quicksilver Wall (card draw)
Dragon's Eye Sentry (1 drop)
Wall of Mulch (card draw)
Wall of Kelp (card draw + more creatures)
Wall of Resistance (can become huge)
Amaranthine Wall (resilient)
Hornet Nest (token generator, can then use the 1/1 deathtouch flying as chum blockers, to be explored I think)
Builder's Blessing (anthem effect)
Tower Defense (potential wincon)
Slagwurm Armor (just makes things bigger)
Bar the Door (wincon)
Oathsworn Giant (anthem effect)
Forbidding Watchtower (flavor)
Geist of the Archives (card advantage)
Sight of the Scalelords (anthem)
Forgotten Ancient (another big guy)
Conjurer's Closet (flicker triggers)
Verdant Sun's Avatar (life gain)
Belligerent Brontodon (another Assault Formation)
Bramble Sovereign (more ETB effects, tokens are permanent which is very nice. Also, if paired with Panharmonicon, you can pay 1G twice, and potentially draw up to six cards. Could be explored, imo)
Let me know if any of this helps you or not :)
