Ghostway if you want another copy of Eerie Interlude.

Manor Gargoyle or any of the "darksteel" indestructible guys.

Expedition Map would let you tutor for Emeria or Nykthos

Enduring Renewal is kinda clunky, but if you have a good set up of creatures its sweet (or if you can play creatures from your graveyard).

Looks like an awesome deck. Manor Gargoyle is a great defender, and might be worth checking out. +1 from me!

Had this idea for a sample encounter: THE WALL

"While continuing on in my travels, I came across this wall. Daunting and strong, like an immortal testament that no living thing should pass this way. I will never know how long I would have stared at its magnificent structure because not long after arriving, I was attacked by its ancient guardians. Great steel gargoyles, breathless, yet alive, fell from the lofty heights and crashed to ground below. As the earth shook, I thought it was from their impact. I wish that assumption was correct, but it was the protective spells from unknown magic that caused the thorns and forest behind me to come alive. The malicious energy surged all around me as I realized my great predicament. I was trapped on all sides. The wall in front, the gargoyles to the sides, and the magical barrier of plants behind me... there was no escape. I would have to fight."


Manor Gargoyle

Darksteel Brute

Warden of the Wall

Wall of Tanglecord

Steel Wall

Steel Overseer

Reinforced Bulwark

So, the concept here is that the Player runs into a barrier, I guess Steel Wall, and needs to get past it. However, there are security measures like Wall of Tanglecord created from a protected hex and Reinforced Bulwark as support to help keep people out. There are also special Gargoyles like Warden of the Wall, Manor Gargoyle, and Darksteel Brute. The wall is trying to keep them out for a reason.


Darksteel Ingot

Mortal's Resolve

Darksteel Mutation

The Darksteel and indestructible theme come out in the treasures. The Darksteel Ingot and Darksteel Mutation are drops from Darksteel Brute and lead to a side quest. Mortal's Resolve is a spell that came from the experience they received from fighting.

SPECIAL TREASURE: (not a card)

One Ebon Steel Fragment -- The idea here,I guess, would be an 11 part long string of encounters. Each victory grants one of these fragments. Once all 11 Fragments are collected, the player can choose to bind the fragments together to make Darksteel Colossus for themselves. However, if they received a "Corrupted Steel Fragment" from a specific encounter, they can choose to combine it with the other 11 fragments to create Blightsteel Colossus as a secret boss fight with tons of rewards.

I'm just throwing ideas out as they come. My concept for this put out very hurriedly

maybe a defender that can do damage on its own?

Manor Gargoyle for the low cmc option....or for more fun..

Colossus of Akros for hilarity

With defender/wall decks I a got couple semi mandatory cards in mind. Rolling Stones and Assault Formation syncing together like crazy. Wall of Frost is just rage indusing. Wakestone Gargoyle and Manor Gargoyle are nice too with Assault Formation.

Assault Formation is a card I can't highlight enough for defender builds :) Hope it helped!

Possible Rare Additions

With the ideal of 13-card boosters, and accounting for bad math in the previous post, if we end up with 442 or 429 cards in the cube then it is evenly divisible by 13.

Sorted by color in WUBRGC order:

Angel of Flight Alabaster

Elite Inquisitor

Champion of the Parish

Mentor of the Meek

Dearly Departed

Geist-Honored Monk


Undead Alchemist

Back from the Brink

Rooftop Storm

Cackling Counterpart

Ludevic's Test Subject

Endless Ranks of the Dead

Skirsdag High Priest

Bloodgift Demon

Sever the Bloodline

Unbreathing Horde

Screeching Bat (uncommon but flavorful)

Instigator Gang  Flip

Charmbreaker Devils

Falkenrath Marauders

Devil's Play

Blasphemous Act

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip

Parallel Lives

Gutter Grime

Lambholt Elder  Flip (uncommon)

Creepy Doll

Manor Gargoyle

6 W, 5 U, 6 B, 8 R, 9 G, 2 C.

Needs a bit of balancing. There are undoubtedly a few rares in my collection I didn't include. Also could add a few duplicates of uncommons that are already in the cube.

In addition, I've collected the dual and most of the utility lands from Innistrad and Dark Ascension...

Clifftop Retreat, Hinterland Harbor, Isolated Chapel, Sulfur Falls, Woodland Cemetery, Moorland Haunt, Nephalia Drownyard, Stensia Bloodhall.

I may add Kessig Wolf Run and Gavony Township, finances permitting.
