Glyph of Life Discussion

lexavian on Arcades, the Strategist

Hello! making an Arcades deck too! My current WIP deck is here: Arcades copy

Card suggestions: Steel Wall has amazing value mana value and Traproot Kami is incredible (especially considering it counts enemy forests too). Wall of Resistance isn't great but it has a lot of potential to get big. Wall of Tears is nice as an even bigger deterrent than all your other defenders are.

The glyphs: Glyph of Delusion,Glyph of Life,Glyph of Reincarnation, have some neat utility here though not amazing. Sprouting Phytohydra has amazing recursion where every-time its token re-enters you draw another card (if arcades is out). This is especially easy if someone has a burn deck where it hits all the creatures on the board. Siren's Call is very good, especially since with all your deterrents you are sure to not take much damage if they target you and will most likely cause two opponents to both suffer. Skeleton Key is great as skulk fits perfectly with this deck theme. The second effect is just an added bonus. Warmonger's Chariot is important as you need as many ways to let creatures attack as possible. Dusk (and also Dawn) are very nice as well as Retribution of the Meek since even though they aren't board wipes, they rid the board of most threats and are sure not to hit 99% of your creatures.

may want to consider Sunweb, Mirror Wall, Cathedral Membrane, Living Wall, and Thunder Wall for walls. Warmonger's Chariot is a linear upgrade from Animate Wall, may want to replace it. Tidal Wave gives you a surprise blocker that is, oddly enough, a wall. Fortified Area gives a solid buff to your troops, Brave the Sands ups each walls stopping power while allowing those that are able to swing and still block, and Cradle of Vitality lets your general start giving those walls some oomph.

where are the glyphs? they are wall exclusive, might as well toss them in as combat tricks! Glyph of Life, Glyph of Doom, Glyph of Delusion.

love the concept, made a wall deck for tribal wars at my local store ages ago, nice to see I wasn't the only one. keep up the good work!

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Spook9MM on The best offense is a good defense

2 years ago

I ran 2 wall decks back in the day, both utilized Rolling Stones and Animate Wall. Cinder Wall and Wall of Razors were nice for offense. Also, there are a few artifact walls that can lose the defender status til end of turn when you need an attacker, Walking Wall and Mobile Fort. Animate Wall + Shifting Wall is nice. If you can manage to get your hands on some really old cards from Legends called glyphs, Glyph of Life and Glyph of Destruction, they can be a great addition. But then again, that's assuming you are just playing this casually for fun. Dark Maze and Illusionary Wall might be good if you are running U/W, but they are more expensive to cast.

fastbond_stripmine_crucible on so, 5/5 for 3, anyone?

2 years ago

have you thought of adding Animate Wall and throwing out other anchant cards to add Fortified Area is really funny and generally involves someone pulling up gatherer the 3 glyphs you can play(Glyph of Doom, Glyph of Life, and Glyph of Reincarnation might be worth it

I really want to see a Siege Dragon fight this deck just because it first ability never does anything
