Hold the Gates

Hold the Gates Discussion
8 months ago
I have always been enthralled by the idea of a gate deck, and this one pretty much sums up how I would do it for casual. I understand that you have probably seen most of these, if not all of these cards, but you might want to check out Crackling Perimeter , which pairs with Wilderness Reclamation beautifully, Hold the Gates which is one of my favorite cards simply for the vigilance it provides. I might run one or two of Gateway Sneak for card draw, or if you play with a group that runs burn, Saruli Gatekeepers .

Maybe Hold the Gates could be good

I also think of Sunscape Familiar as a must have.
Wall of Shards is surprisingly useful as a political tool.

Balzeron: First of all I would like to say that I am honored that my deck has helped inspire your deck building. Secondly, I have some responses to you comments below:
Amaranthine Wall and Hornet Nest are ones that I am still considering. The indestructibility is definitely a nice ability and being able to make a bunch of 1/1 flying death touchers when someone blocks the nest is pretty awesome.
Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, and Mindbender Spores are all great cards if you are going a more defensive route. I chose to exclude them because I am a more aggressive list and I wanted big (4 toughness or greater), cheap walls.
My deck personally doesn't want cards like Manor Gargoyle, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Woolly Razorback, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, or Fortified Area as all of these cards either have power greater than 2 or pump my creatures power. I rely heavily on staying at 2 power or less so I can abuse Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.
The same goes for Doorkeeper. Mill is already hard enough to pull off with a dedicated mill deck in EDH because decks are large and there are 3 opponents. I'd rather play either larger walls or defenders with more relevant abilities.
The banding suggestions are interesting. I had to re-read the rules on banding and I did not realize it also affects attacking creatures. Those could be interesting, I'll have to think about that.
Spidersilk Armor and Tower Defense are awesome with Arcades and may very well end up in my final list. Right now I want to try out Hold the Gates over Spidersilk Armor as it has a higher upside and I already have a number of answers for fliers (Wonder, Angelic Wall, Wall of Tanglecord, Wall of Denial and Arcades himself). Since this list is aggressive, I think vigilance is actually a more impactful keyword in my deck. I already have a pseudo Tower Defense in Defender of the Order. I don't think Defender is particularly better than the Defense, but I have an old foil of it from Legions which I just really want to play.
Thanks for the comments and if you ever want another pair of eyes on your deck, let me know.

Just noticed you're running the Gates, so maybe you could add Hold the Gates as well !

Inventors' Fair for Plains. It's just good and there is no reason to have a plains rather than this. (I can trade you one)
Rogue's Passage for Plains if you don't already have it since you don't have lands listed.
