This deck is so cool! There are a bunch of cards and combos that I've never seen before(only been playing for a year and a half) and I love playing bant colors so this is giving me all kinds of ideas! This deck you made clearly deserves the upvote I gave it, but honestly I would've hit upvote anyway because you're running Resolute Watchdog which never gets enough love where I live. ; _ ; Duh puppy needz hugz.

Other defenders to consider: Crashing Drawbridge , Wall of Junk , Geist of the Archives , Resolute Watchdog , Portcullis Vine , Suspicious Bookcase , Wakestone Gargoyle , Grappling Sundew

Ways to Win: Tower Defense , Tree of Redemption , Bar the Door , Solidarity , Slagwurm Armor , Meishin, the Mind Cage , Primal Rage , Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Flicker: Ghostway , Panharmonicon

Removal: Generous Gift , Arcane Denial

Other things: Search for Tomorrow , Treefolk Umbra , Brave the Sands , Guardian Project , Darksteel Plate

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a problem...pay attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

If you're going to do a Wall (Defender) Deck, I'd recommend switching your colors from Green-Blue-Red to Green-Blue-White.

Arcades, the Strategist isn't a super-expensive card to purchase & he adds immensely to Defender builds.

Wall of Roots can help you out quite a bit with Mana Generation, especially if you need a bunch of it in a hurry. The same is true of Saruli Caretaker Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is a must-have too I'd say for when you can shed Defender abilities & attack.

If you do decide to splash White, then you have a number of other really decent (and inexpensive) Defender options such as Wall of Essence , Novice Knight , Resolute Watchdog , and many - MANY - more.

I far prefer Resolute Watchdog to Dauntless Bodyguard

I would suggest Spellgorger Weird in place of Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin . This provides another body that quietly collects +1/+1 counters while you play, until you have a powerful creature, in place of a number of 1/1 tokens that would die to any area effect spell. Either card works.

Vlasiax there is no real reason for not running Portcullis Vine , I just think it is not that good :) I put Dragon's Eye Sentry out in favour for Resolute Watchdog . Like THCue said, I also don't run dorks because I don't think that they aren't needed so badly and have a big target painted on their head (espeacially Noble Hierarch ) I think I'd rather play a defender for one mana instead of a dork, to put pressure to the table. I'm torn between Lightning Greaves or protection in general or counterspells. I can't say what's more effective. But greaves can be very good, I agree. Struyk how many counterspells do you run?

Sorry, that was a bit rude,

If you are splashing green for Huatli, the Sun's Heart , then Tower Defense is a must-have. Imagine 3, 0/4 creatures and High Alert - Play Tower Defense and swing with 3, 8/8 creatures. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can then make all of your creatures unblockable. Slaughter the Strong gives you a cheap one-sided board-wipe. Dovin's Veto counters your opponent's board-wipes. This should be the core of your deck.

I rather like Suncleanser , but would back it up with 2 or 3 Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , Wall of Mist , Wall of Runes , Grappling Sundew and Resolute Watchdog . You want to aim for your first attack to be a one-turn-kill.
