I've already got an old Arcades Sabboth Wall say it's going to get an upgrade with the new version is an understatement! Here are some recommendations:

Harsh Mercy Blow up everything but Walls! Kindred Discovery Just awesome for card draw. Kindred Summons Double the Walls, double the fun. Island Sanctuary Who needs a Draw Step when you have the new Arcades? Mentor of the Meek More cards, more wins. Feed the Pack Overwhelm the board with Wolf tokens ftw. Sunweb Big fatty with evasion. Illusionary Wall See above. Walking Wall Can be pumped up to stupidly high levels. Fortified Area Buffs Walls. Animate Wall Get on the attack early. Colossus of Akros With Monstrosity he is a boss late game. Sphere of Safety I run a lot of Enchantments so it's in.

Catalog9000 I was curious and looked up the breaks you mentioned. In case anyone else is interested:

  • Only three Blue creatures naturally have First Strike--Illusionary Wall (Ice Age), Narwhal (Homelands), and Vodalian Knights (Fallen Empires). All other blue creatures either are multicoloured, or require some other condition (such as controlling a planes) to gain First Strike. It's been 13 years since we last had a Blue creature with First Strike, for good reason.

  • For green, it's a bit more common (though still less than 10 cards), but has not been seen since Mirrodin back in 2003.

Far-Seeker of Knowledge

Creature - Human Wizard

Far-Seeker of Knowledge has Haste as long as you control a Mountain.

Far-Seeker of Knowledge has First Strike as long as you control a Plains.

There's so much we can learn from other cultures that cannot be found by reading a book


Create another mono-coloured 1 drop that works better in a multi-coloured deck.

There are some blue creatures that have First Strike like these: Narwhal and Illusionary Wall. I think there are a few others.

Spook9MM on The best offense is a good defense

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.
