You should take out Gleaming Barrier and Hollow One and add Foundry Inspector, Mishra's Self-Replicator, and maybe put Jhoira's Familiar in the sideboard in case you need flying blockers? Love this deck btw

Wall tribal is real tricky when you aren't running Wall of Mulch/Wall of Roots/Overgrown Battlement (+Axebane Guardian)

Cathedral Membrane Jeskai Barricade and Wall of Tanglecord are worth a look too.

Deep Freeze is on theme.

Guardian Zendikon/Gleaming Barrier/Primal Clay/Warmonger's Chariot all aren't great, but might be worth a look.

Pample1 yeah i'll take a look at it.

The Scarab God serves as a late game bring things back attrition piece.

Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp serves well to come out usually on turn 4 to 6 as a 4 drop due to treasure being out to help with the casting cost or even Gleaming Barrier or Treasure Map

Ive also built a version of this deck, I added Gleaming Barrier to fight aggro, Vraska's Contempt because that card is amazing, Profane Procession  Flip because I really like it and it curves pretty nicely into scriptures and also hand disruption like freebooter, duress and divest so its harder for opponents to come back from the combo

what do you think about cheap enchantments that provide value in there like Curious Obsession/ Sixth Sense or Dead Man's Chest Gonti's Machinations Unbridled Growth Underhanded Designs ? new also Song of Freyalise Demonic Vigor

the same for artifacts Filigree Familiar Gleaming Barrier Hope of Ghirapur Implement of Malice Implement of Examination Implement of Ferocity Renegade Map Walking Ballista

obviously every path could be correct as long as we dont have all the cards available to playtest

Why are you playing Captain Lannery Storm? I may have missed that somewhere in these archives, but it seems to me that as a control player you would prefer to have a more defensive treasure production, for example another copy each of Gleaming Barrier and Sailor of Means, maybe even another Hornswoggle or the like.

I feel like Bone Saw and Cathar's Shield might not be valuable in the long run. Some other artifacts that might be better drops:

Pillar of Origins - Pick Artifact, you get mana if you don't need the artifact.
Sentinel Totem - Scry is always good, and it's a good stand in for an anti-zombie deck
Prying Blade - Bone Saw, but with potential to make more artifacts!
Gleaming Barrier - Wall, when it dies, makes a token.

Love the idea, look forward to hearing how it goes!
