Geist of the Archives Discussion
2 weeks ago
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:
2 months ago
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 :)

Sideboard cards:Spreading Seas for TronAny sort of graveyard hate, such as Crook of CondemnationEidolon of Rhetoric for storm, though it kind of hurts this deck as well.Witchbane Orb is good agianst burn and storm if they are using Grapeshot as a win condition.All of these are under two dollars each. For the main deck you may want a few more instants and sorceries, and the Geist of the Archives seem unnecessary. I hope this was helpful.

Looks neat, if kind of slow. If you really want to irritate people, some good cards are Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch for repeated bounces and Shriekgeist for well-costed flyers. Shriekgeist also helps with the mill sub-theme. I'd cut Silent Observer, it does way too little for 4 cmc. Lastly, it might be cool to use Geist of the Archives, but I'll leave that to you.

I like Uncage the Menagerie. I can use it to get Kiora's Follower and Wall of Omens, Axebane Guardian (which is essential to the deck) and Geist of the Archives and if I don't have a better search I can get Colossus of Akros. Lots of ways to make sure I get supporting creatures for my board. I don't remember all the searches in this game so it could be poor one just to get 1-2 creatures.
I dunno if I need 4 Assault Formations. The deck is worthless in hand if I already have it on the battlefield and this deck draws very frequently.
I do think Mana Leak is a good idea, I forgot about it completely
