This just means there's going to be a good few Defenders in M19 to justify running Arcades.
This is my dream commander -- I've made custom Bant Defender Lords, dreaming of this day.

Though a card you might like is Pride Guardian.

You could run a Luxa River Shrine for some extra lifegain.
Good luck with the deck, looks awesome!

I love this idea! Getting me so hyped to build my own wall deck! Saw your comment in the forum section and figured I would reply here instead.
This might combo well Pride Guardian, or if you can find a way to slot in Rhox Faithmender. I love this planeswalker, eventhough it probably isn't the strongest and most fitting: Ajani Goldmane. It looks like you might need a card draw engine, Alhammarret's Archive. Awe Strike could be a good fit or Ojutai's Command for some more control? Fumigate can be a good board wipe, but hopefully it won't be needed.
This is just some from the top of my mind and when I search for cards that have Felidar Sovereign in their deck (if this is your winning condition). Hence Ojutai's Command can help you get it back if you have to discard them. Maybe you also can make use of a tutor card or even more card draw?
Good luck with the deck! Loving the idea of a wall deck. Not sure if Felidar Sovereign is the usual way of winning these games, but it sure looks fun. Be aware of deathtouch creatures. I would probably play 4 of Wall of Denial but I'm no pro in this.

Sacred Cat seems better than Pride Guardian if your goal is to win by attacking with creatures. You also need more lands. I'd cut 3 True Convictions and add 3 more lands to start with. Since White Sun's Zenith shuffles itself back into the deck, you could probably cut 3 of those and 1 Jedit in order to add 4 Adorned Pouncer. Maybe 2 Qasali Pridemage could fit in the deck to give utility by destroying problematic artifacts/enchantments, perhaps replacing 1-2 Unflinching Courage. If you have the funds, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerful addition, although since it's legendary I wouldn't run more than 1-2. Hopefully these changes will help you have more consistent games. Also, I'd change your deck tag to 'casual' instead of 'Unformat', since Unformat means decks that use cards from the silver-boardered 'Un' sets like the new Unstable set.

Great discussion! Love seeing everyone's answers!
The first deck I built was a classic rookie deck.
I had a Red/Green dragon deck that I'd bought from a friend to start me off and My brother had a White/Green Zendikar intro-deck that I'd gotten him. After we decided we wanted Magic, and a lot of it, we bought a couple lots of 1000 cards from ebay(rookie mistake #1) and went to brewing.
Rookie mistake number 2: we thought lifegain was the most powerful, amazing thing ever, so my brother and and went about building an unstoppable 4-color life gain deck!!!!
It was awful.
Chalk full of amazing cards like Predator's Rapport, Pride Guardian, Soulmender, and a single Felidar Sovereign(from the intro pack)! It was a mess to be honest, but a really fun time and a good learning experience. Good times.
The first deck I really, truly brewed, researched, discussed, evolved, bought, and got to a point I was truly happy with was Bad Luck Brion. That's the one I'm proud of haha

Interesting idea here, but I would perhaps remove the Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek, and some of the high mana creatures, since they don't really have any good purpose for this deck with their high mana cost... Not sure if you get to play them that often, and also you have few/alot cards that get use from the amount of cards/creatures in ur graveyard, So I would probably add more low mana green creatures with "tap for mana" abilities for example Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic there are ALOT elf 1mana cards with "tap for mana". If you build this deck more around Elves, then Priest of Titania / Joraga Treespeaker would be smart, which would also make u get those higher mana creatures on table and faster. Also Cradle of Vitality would be handy with the "gain life" cards you have, for example the Goldenglow Moth, theres a card which is kinda similiar to it --> Pride Guardian and a fun card to throw on it, After it/ or some of your creature blocks an high stat attacker... is to throw this Righteousness or Smite or some cards that make it undestroyable, I noticed that you probably want to keep this as Budget'ish deck so I suggested few cheap cards. Also would probably remove Oran-Rief Survivalist since you only have those 2 as "Ally". I would focus on building around something you have alot, for example those "gain life" cards, getting more cards that give alot value from gaining life. Since you're playing only against Black/White flying deck/or a blue mill deck, I would build this deck to counter those better, think on what card types ur weak against to, and/or try to counter those with something, Sorry for bad english,( oh and change the deck format to casual, since you dont have Standard legal cards) I hope I could help somehow :D, lemme know if you got anything more to ask about! Otherwise GL with the deck! And wreck dat guys decks
