Have you considered adding some protection/flicker effects here? Heroic Intervention for protection and Eerie Interlude with Ghostway not only save your board state but with Arcades give ton of cards after comeback.
I think that this deck has too high curve so I'd cut cards like Azor, the Lawbringer , Dazzling Ramparts and Collossus of Akros to make some room for low-cost cards. Especially that Wall of Mulch and Portcullis Vine can give you some more cards (I like to use them with Wall of Kelp tokens) and Resolute Watchdog can protect the general.
For another low-cost replacement I'd suggest going for Brave the Sands instead of Oathsworn Giant and maybe Serra's Blessing for more Vigilance effects. If you want more oomph then Tower Defense is an amazing combat trick that can finish games with unblocked defenders out of nowhere.
Also for ramp and manabase I'd highly recommend adding a few basic Forests and Rampant Growth , Nature's Lore and Farseek might speed up your gameplan by a ton. For defenders Overgrown Battlement and Vine Trellis add some but main objective to use them is to ramp into Arcades ASAP and after he's present then draw some cards + that mana can easily be dumped into Assault Formation for boost.
Hope this helps :)

Hey Heliogabale,

firstable, I want to say sorry, for answering your suggestion that late. So what do we have here, I added High Alert already, founded at the prerelease. I don't have Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Kira, Great Glass-Spinner or Privileged Position . But your are right, especially Privileged Position , seems like awesome. I try to get my hands on some of them. I think Oathsworn Giant is too expensive for its impact. I have to think about him. But Bident of Thassa looks really interesting.

Thanks a lot about you suggestions!! :)

Cool deck!

I am bringing suggestions from my own build, We Don't Need No Education

For your protection issues with your commander: Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner are good creature-type shields; I also run Diplomatic Immunity and Privileged Position .

Hope this helps!

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 have run my Arcades deck several times and have learned a few things. I have taken Panharmonicon out of my deck. It is an extremely good card with Arcades draw mechanic, but I will warn you, unless you have several ways to give yourself no maximum hand size, you will quickly be discarding a lot of cards. I found that I draw more than enough without it so it becomes a wasted turn to play it and a mechanic you really don't need.

Also, I would get rid of some specialty cards you have unless you are willing to commit more that the strategy. This would include Doorkeeper and Laboratory Mechanic.

Also, high mana cards are actually a big hindrance in the deck. I would take out Oathsworn Giant. I took it out as for 6 mana, in the later turns, +2 and vigilance is a very little difference when there is so much more powerful things you could be doing. Also, Meishin is not as powerful as you think when there are so much better and cheaper one sided board wipes for wall decks. I would add Retribution of the Meek as well as Wave of Reckoning.

Take a look at my deck which I have run several times and always performs well. This deck turns out to be a quick aggro deck so keeping your mana curve a little lower and making sure you ramp out if very important. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/trumps-walls-gonna-get-you/

Good luck

hello, fellow doran user.

may i sugest a bit more buff enchantments. like Behind the Scenes, Builder's Blessing, Castle, Parapet, Primal Rage, Spidersilk Armor and Brave the Sands. I would also like to sugest a bit of mass removal, that will not remave Doran, the Siege Tower like Fell the Mighty, Wave of Reckoning and Slaughter the Strong. I have 2 creature sugestions as well. if you could add Oathsworn Giant and Unstoppable Ash. they are great.

I hope these sugestions will help you.

No problem--also just remembered about Oathsworn Giant. I used to have it in Doran but took it out for some removal.
