MisterCZAR on Arcades and Friends

I really like this take on an Arcades build! I've been working on one myself but went in a total defense direction. I really like the way this looks. Everything in your deck serves a purpose but my only concern is with Rolling Stones, as you have very little in the way of buffs, and all but one of your walls have a 0 power.

Consider swapping it for Leyline of Vitality to bump their toughness for when Arcades comes into play, or Alpha Status to boost based on type dominance.

Enral, thanks for the suggestion. Homeward Path is definitely a consideration, although I haven't run into that issue yet. Usually once the drawing gets going I find Assault Formation one way or another.

However, Rolling Stones was in the deck originally, as was Wakestone Gargoyle. I decided to cut them because only roughly half of my creatures are walls (to take advantage of Rolling Stones), and neither gives the "assigns combat damage equal to its toughness rather than its power" clause.

Overall I have had not a whole lot of trouble keeping Arcades, the Strategist on the board to facilitate my plans, but I'm sure that will change after a few more combo-wins. :P

You need Homeward Path cos once your command is stolen your deck just fell apart without Assault Formation. Also add in Rolling Stones for redundancy.

Romer on Arcades' Best Defense

Thanks SaskeSaskia! Yeah, Rolling Stones seems silly as a backup for having Arcades in play. All Rolling Stones does is allow my walls to attack but then I just have a bunch of 0 toughness creatures tapping and doing no damage.

Assault Formation on the other hand, does a better job as backup when my commander's not in play. It lets all my creatures deal damage based on Toughness and gives me a way to allow my Defenders to attack (though that second part costs mana).

Any thoughts for Animate Wall or Rolling Stones ?

The theme deck of the hour!

You don't really want to be running Rolling Stones or Wakestone Gargoyle, because while they allow your Defenders to attack, they don't provide the essential effect of using Toughness for damage. I guess you are hoping to combo them with Belligerent Brontodon, but I would free these 3 spots for more value and efficiency.

I would definitely move Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa to the main board.

If you are going for flicker effects, you could include Venser, the Sojourner, who also provides great evasion.

I like Bident of Thassa in this deck, because forcing your opponent to crash their creatures against your walls seems like a lot of fun.

Please feel free to look at my version and comment! We Don't Need No Education

1shabby on Arcades the Turtle of Death

kiagam Thank you for the all the advice i'll most likely pick up a Bant Panorama for the ability to tutor for basics. However I have a problem with Rolling Stones, and Wakestone Gargoyle and that is I may be able to attack with my walls but it doesn't mean anything if my walls cant use their toughtness as power. As for the Colossus of Akros i'm on the fence but i'll probably add it back into the deck and Fog Bank is good but I dislike that it cant actually deal any damage unlike Guard Gomazoa which is similar but I feel is better in almost every way in this deck. Lastly as far as the Dormant Sliver and Hivestone interaction is concerned I think that both cards are at least decent in this deck especially since my playgroup has a few sliver decks so it helps control them and give me card draw or just buffs my things to the level of the other slivers.

Land - Bant Panorama is cheap and effective

Enchantment: Rolling Stones, Serra's Blessing

Creature: Wakestone Gargoyle, Colossus of Akros, Fog Bank

And i think dormant sliver for that 1 interaction with hivestone is unnecessary. You will never pull it off without tutors.

Felidar sovereign only really works with angelic chorus, all other healing is too residual, I would think he never activates (can be removed easily, you don't have anything to return it and little life gain)
