I think this idea of "high defense" creatures being so "cheap" or having other utilities is the reason why cards like Doran, the Siege Tower and Assault Formation are fairly rare. Making creatures able to assign damage from their toughness can warp the game in unexpected ways. Especially since you can transform creatures like Tree of Perdition and Tree of Redemption into 13/13 creatures for 4 mana, when you pair them with cards that allow you to negate the Defender tag. Or cards like Indomitable Ancients who are a 2/10 creature for 4 mana, Doran turns it into a 10/10 creature in essence. Even things like Yoked Ox and God-Pharaoh's Faithful become insanely strong as they become essentially 4/4 1 drop creatures.

There's a new creature from Ixalan who does the same thing Doran does, forgot his name but he's a dinosaur. Also a WB Gargoyle from the RTR block that acts as a Rolling Stones on legs.
Have you ever considered some means of making your walls unblockable? Behind the Scenes and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa give your creatures pseudo evasion. No Tower Defense? It's a great finisher. Dusk / Dawn is usually a one-sided boardwipe for you. Also Indomitable Ancients is a card.
One thing I noticed is you don't have too much ramp/removal. I'd recommend cutting down on instants that provide a temporary buff in favor of removal like Swords to Plowshares and Putrefy, along with ramp like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach.
You can easily cut the taplands in favor of pain lands like Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, and if you have the money Brushland. Mana Confluence and City of Brass are also both great mana-fixing options.
This is definitely a lot of information, so if you need any help for specific cuts, let me know!
Hope this helps!

+1, love the concept! I'd try using a few more creatures with higher toughness (like walls) in order to kill other creatures quicker.
Tower Defense could also be a really fun card, essentially giving your creatures +5/+5 until end of turn for only 2 mana!

Good work! Now, I can go a couple different ways with my remarks.
Option One: The Joke -> This would basically be me advising you on other cards to put in your current build. Like you said, your general is definitely not a real card, so I would treat this deck like a joke, and thus would suggest cards accordingly.
Option Two: A Real Deck -> With some color modification, Doran, the Siege Tower would be an excellent general for you. Granted, you wouldn't run actual walls, as they still couldn't attack (except for when you have Wakestone Gargoyle, Rolling Stones, or Assault Formation). However, it is of a similar mindset. Creatures with big booties, such as Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Nyx-Fleece Ram, and Skinshifter, become quite good with Doran around. Also, various other treefolk such as Indomitable Ancients, Leaf-Crowned Elder, Unstoppable Ash, and Treefolk Harbinger. Not to mention the often untapped and always fetchable Murmuring Bosk. That's all I'll say for the moment on that. Lemme know if that's a direction you'd like to go!

Gives evasion for big butts:
Locks down high powered creatures:
Mostly one-sided wraths:
Ideally, low CMC and high toughness critters reign with Doran. Vigilance is also amazing. Try to avoid plain vanilla creatures as tempting as they may be. Exceptions being Indomitable Ancients and Kami of Old Stone.

Hi again guys and gals! I'm trying to cement my Doran deck and was wanting input. Deck description is a little bare bones but sufficient to get what it's trying to do across. Basically I am looking for cards like Meekstone that punish high powered creatures and I'm also looking for non-vanilla big butts. Tasseled Dromedary for instance is a 1 drop effective 4/4. While that is value I'd prefer cards that contribute a bit more than just being plain vanilla wafers (Kami of Old Stone and Indomitable Ancients are exceptions to this rule). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
