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

Hold the Gates would go great with your deck!

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?

I know what you mean about it being thin. Right now my goal is to survive long enough for me to burn them out with Crackling Perimeter, swing in with Gateway Shade, or combo with Doran, the Siege Tower + Hold the Gates . I planned to saty alive via life gain and the insane toughness buff i get from Hold the Gates. I really like Genesis Wave in here. Scapeshift seems a bit to $50 for me haha but i won't rule it out. Thanks so much btw. I may add some walls and take out some of the aggro stuff, if i do that should i keep in Doran?

That was the implication, if the creature = gate clause were the case then Hold the Gates would already be in the mainboard, seeing as it isn't and the only support the card would receive is slightly more than 10% of the board I haven't put it in.

Though Hold the Gates is potentially hilarious I can't see it working tall too well if Maze's End is my only gate fetch option.
