At the beginning of each player's upkeep, return to its owner's hand each creature that player controls with power greater than the number of cards in his or her hand.

Soon as this commander was spoiled I wanted to build him but unfortunately you have still beat me to him! Fog Bank was the card that got me into kitchen table magic many years ago. You should run Teferi's Protection I know its pricey but that is because it is good!

This is pretty sweet! I was just thinking about a similar concept, but wanted to test Disinformation Campaign in it as well, and build around Surveil a bit. The truest bouncy house!
Have you considered running Sire Of Insanity in your list? At a hefty price point, Chains of Mephistopheles would also go wonderfully, pairing with Anvil of Bogardan for a hand-size lock that makes opponents permanently hell-bent if they get there!
I'm planning to run Bedlam Reveler and The Flame of Keld as additional ways of getting myself hell-bent or at 4 cards or less for Noetic Scales, and am tempted to play Ensnaring Bridge as well. Not really 100% sure yet on the exact slots, I've got piles of cards on the table that need to be trimmed to make the deck still lol
Nice deck, I will definitely be taking some inspiration from it!

Here’s a few ideas for you to kick around that would really add to the strong discard theme:

Nice to see a new player to EDH, if you ever have any questions just ask.
I have a few preliminary suggestions for you.
Taking advantage of the 0 power of your walls is a must here (so avoiding things that give your walls +1/+1 is advisable. Rather, go for effects like Stalwart Shield-Bearers instead).
Giving your walls vigilance (and other things) is a powerful thing to do from my experience.
I have a lot more to suggest, but I'll hold them unless you have specific ideas you are looking for. I also have my own Arcades deck that I have built that I would highly recommend looking at.

I hope that this is of some help! Again, if you ever have questions just go ahead and ask me on my profile; I will do my best to help you.

PartyJ thanks for the compliments!
I need to finish this primer, which should help clear up some of my card choices, in the mean time feel free to bounce any ideas you have off me.
I really wanted to keep a tribal Elves aspect to this deck, I get it's not the optimal way to run a Nath stax list but it's a flavor win and keeps my inner aggro player happy.
I'm at an odd inbetween area with this list, I want to find a hybrid between stax, combo and aggro but I'm not sure if that's possible.

I've had a bigass list of cards in Cockatrice for a while that I'm dwindling to a deck. Yours has given me a lot of inspiration!
Do you find having only a few counters is worth it?
Few other cards I've thought about including: High Ground, Primal Rage, Bow of Nylea, Steely Resolve, Spidersilk Armor (iffy on this one, but just in case?), Noetic Scales, Sterling Grove, As Foretold, Aura Shards, Urza's Incubator, Herald's Horn, Skeleton Key.
You have a very low avg. CMC, but I find it hard not to include Chromatic Lantern in any multicolored deck. Do you do well without much mana rock ramp?

Needs more stax. Cards you may want to consider: Hanna's Custody, Thorn of Amethyst, Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Fall of the Thran, Global Ruin, Keldon Firebombers, Smallpox, Slaughter the Strong, Stronghold Rats, Necrogen Mists, Ensnaring Bridge, War's Toll, Tectonic Instability, Rite of the Raging Storm, Tainted AEther, Fulminator Mage, Divine Presence, Storage Matrix, Grave Pact, Bottomless Pit, Stoneshaker Shaman, Aura of Silence, Mesmeric Orb, Bounty Agent, Noetic Scales.
Not every one of these cards need to be included. Pick which ones you feel may suit you best as these are some of the best stax cards in your colors to choose from.

Vlasiax Very nice Deck and also nice overview of all defenders. Wall of Shards is a nice beater but I don't like his upkeep since I don't want to have my opponents to gain life. I know it wouldn't be that much in a multiplayer game or have a big impact but it could be the one life you are missing to remove from them later (besides it's not just one life cummulative upkeep goes up every turn).
Fun Fact, I've never drawn into Wall of Kelp. I also think it's a very bad card and could be replaced by a far better defenedr, but people here wanted me to try it and so I put it back in the deck. I have absolutely no idea how it performs. Heroic Intervention will probably be added in the future.
