Hold the Gates Discussion

Richrox , thanks for the advice I've been considering Preeminent Captain ( I just completely skipped over the maybe board). I actually just bought Preeminent Captain a little bit ago as well as some other cards that I have seen used in other soldier decks. As for Hold the Gates , I had it in there because the vigilance triggers even without a gate, but now that I look it over there are definitely better cards to have in it. Overall, just thanks for the advice and feedback!

Hold the Gates has no value if you don't control any Gates, which you don't.

Additionally, I would reduce your lands down to 19 and add 4 copies Preeminent Captain, as he can push our your entire hand by turn 5 or 6, and for a budget modern deck like this he should be a staple.

Have you tested running some more Assault Formation alongside Natural Affinity for an unexpected win with Tower Defense or Hold the Gates? I feel like having a post-board state where the creatures appear from nowhere- Cobra Trap or Secure the Wastes style to deal with the inevitble Wrath of God coming in from sideboard could be good. It could also help free up those lower creature slots for some Languish and Yahenni's Expertise type area removal to deal with faster aggro. Might try putting it together to see what it would look like. Anyways, loving the deck idea.

Tree of Redemption, because why not have both.

Belbe's Armor Might be a cute why to beef up an attack.

Palisade Giant just kinda makes sense.

Archers' Parapet because a defender that drains life is awesome.

Overwhelming Stampede Win con.

Few toughness boosters to consider: Solidarity, Bar the Door, Veteran Armorer, Hold the Gates

Hi there. I realize you do t seem to want to use blue.. but that'd give you access to Freed from the Real which combos with Axebane Guardian for infinite mana

I have a defender deck myself, that I am working on. Its called Labyrinth of dementia check it out sometime. I use walls with Hold the Gates to increase toughness before activating Phenax, God of Deception for the win. Thoughts?

Hello there, happen to run a nice little defender deck myself, known as the Labyrinth of dementia check it out sometime.

I use Axebane Guardian to mana..and Freed from the Real to go infinite.

I increase the toughness of my creatures with Hold the Gates and finish them off with Phenax, God of Deception

Have you thought of Tree of Redemption?

I have a defender based mill deck. I use Amulet of Vigor with guildgates and the spell Hold the Gates to boost everyone. Then I hit em with Phenax, God of Deception check it out sometime. Its called Labyrinth of dementia

but I'm really liking Doran, the Siege Tower have you thought about Axebane Guardian?
