PluralkumquatThank you for you suggestions. The only card I would consider adding is Jeskai Barricade , because it offers a good protection for Arcades an I think it is really good. The other ones are eiter too expensive mana wise or have too much power like mentioned by thcue and Mitrian. The deck is focused on getting as much defenders out as fast as possible for the best mana/toughness value. Sylvan Caryatid is not bad at first sight but it wouldn't help much with ramping and in the late game its toughness is too low for . The best thing which can happen is to oneshot an opponent and every single point of toughness is important. I use Fog Bank to shut down a lot of commanders and their abilities in my meta. Maybe I'll remove it in the future because some of those commanders were disbanded.
thcue Thank you for you comment and continuous support.
MitrianThank you for your comment and clarifications. I personally like Wall of Omens and Wall of Blossoms , because they always helped me to get back some cards in my hand after discarding abilities or after I have drawn a lot of non-defenders. If you want to get rid of them, best replacement cards would be Murmuring Phantasm and Wall of Deceit . Those are the only 2 cmc cards left with the highest toughness (well except for Wall of Shards but I don't like to be responsible for enemy advantage).

Lackluster defenders maybe, but we have them for attacking too. Cantripping walls are nice, but I think things like Wall of Omens and Wall of Blossoms are the minimum toughness and maximum CMC thresholds for the ones that are only cantrips and nothing else. Remember, we're drawing for every defender anyway (in most cases), so the focus has to be on more than just the draw. As thcue mentioned, keeping wall power at 1 or 0 matters for some combos, not the least of which is Tetsuko , who is an absolute all-star here. 0/3 walls aren't terrible, but we want higher toughness for the bigger 'grenade' when we attack. Jeskai Barricade is the only one in your list I'd consider adding, as it's a good protection card. THe other three aren't improvements to the existing game plan, in my opinion.

Fog Bank , Guardians of Meletis , Wall of Mist , Wall of Roots , and Wall of Vines are all lackluster defenders. Jungle Barrier , Jeskai Barricade , Sylvan Caryatid , and Carven Caryatid would be better choices in my opinion.

nice, i'm thinking of just taking out all of my doublers in my deck, except maybe Mana Reflection. in my play group mana doublers get hated out so much that's it's almost never worth the mana cost, what i cast for 5-7 mana gets easily killed/countered by much cheaper spells usually making them not worth it, i'd rather have cards that are lower threat, but sticks around for more value.
Tooth and Nail is a good tutor for sure. but Chord of Calling is just insane, you can cheat out all sorts of shenanigans with that card for cheap cast at instant speed. and i would say Green Sun's Zenith is also a strong contender, over Primal Command (unless money is an issue)
lastly, i was digging really deep in the mtg database last night for Zacama, i think i found my new favorite pet card for the deck Dust Elemental 4 mana cost, flash, and return 3 creatures including himself. lets you go infinite with zacama if you have 14+ land base mana, and even better if you run more ETB creatures like Eternal Witness, Wood Elves, Acidic Slime (just destroy everyone's lands if you can't win with damage). Or just even simple stuff like Impact Tremors can win with the recasting loop. But in case of board wipes you can just save 2 of your creatures for 4 mana, and for how ever much mana you have open you can repeat that.

Yes, I just put Axebane Guardian in last night and game testing it. It made a huge different in the deck! X any colors of mana is a super helpful on mana fixing! Totally agree with you.
Doorkeeper and Vent Sentinel can be a good one to add in for extra winning condition, I had try to put in different type of defender with color mana, but still colorless wall feels more consistent to me, if you have any idea to adjust to deck so that I can play different color defender would be great.
Currently I am thinking about going for life gain defender, which is focus on white. such as Fortified Rampart, Jeskai Barricade, Order of the Stars, Perimeter Captain, Pride Guardian, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Wall of Essence, etc.

SteelZephyr, may I ask what Masterpieces you got?
I don't have the ability to turn this into a card because it'd be way too insane, but I've got a story for you.
I was once in a 3v3 Modern matchup. I was using Selesnay Aggro Tokens, my opponent was using Midrange Dragons, and my other opponent was using White Weenies.
It was a long game. We all kept stalling because we were afraid to attack one another. The Dragon player was not hitting his cards in the correct order, so he wasn't getting anything out. As for me and my other opponent, we kept amassing tokens about the same rate.
Well, I had out cards such as Suture Priest, and plentiful amounts of draw. I also ran cards such as Jeskai Barricade and Avenger of Zendikar. What this meant was, I could blink Avenger because I could pay the cost of both Barricade and Avenger each turn. This gave me an ever-increasing population of tokens, which I would Second Harvest into just an insane amount of even more. Likewise, if Avenger was not on the field and I had the mana via Cryptolith Rite, I could literally just blink two Jeskai Barricade against each other. I also ran Oblivion Sower, which was really beginning to piss everyone off.
I was eventually at 180+ life. My opponent running Dragons was splashing other colors for sideboard trickery, and he hit my entire board with Sleep. Everything tapped out and he swung for a fair amount of damage. My other opponent then proceeded to beat me down as well. All told, I took 140+ damage before it got back to me.
So, I just started blinking my guys again using more tricks and playing a second copy of Avenger and ended up getting 100+ life right back.
I did eventually lose, not because I wasn't large enough to win - oh no I definitely was. I was just having so much darn fun that I wanted to see how long I could make the game last. Eventually I ran out of spells to keep me afloat.
But one of the spells that kept me going was a playset of Dawnglow Infusion, which REALLY fueled their rage toward me.
So there, that's my story :3 Idk how to make that into a card...
OR DO I!?
