Removed Congregation at Dawn And added in Sacred Rites

We are pretty close to the same but a few cards posted above we can test them out and see how we do. I really thing yuo need to add in Aura Shards it's a game changer when it gets out.

Sorry for answering late THCue, I've been busy the last weeks. You have some very nice cards in your deck, thank you for posting the list. I'll go into detail for some cards and share my opinion.

Aura Shards I really like it and this card will be added sooner or later.

As I said earlier, I just don't want to add fetch lands for different reasons. I don't think they are mandatory for mana fixing in this deck, also the price might turn some people off.

A friend of mine runs Slaughter the Strong in one of his Oathbreaker decks. I don't think it isn't that good because an opponent can still haven 4 1/1 creatures to block your stuff or to have a engine. I'm happy when it is this board wipe instead of another one because I can save some creatures.

Thallid Shell-Dweller , Perimeter Captain and Wall of Deceit ignore their abilities! They have the best mana/toughness value!

Cards like Sunpetal Grove rarely come in tapped, but that's personal taste.

On a side note Sacred Rites won me a game yesterday. I discarded 4 cards and swung big. I'll keep testing it.

The_Declan I once had both cards in the deck. It really is personal preference what to keep and add between both of them. I rarely block with my creatures so the ability is negligible for me. But thank you for your suggestion!

Okay here I go I might tweak it more but this is the only change I did.

What I have in my deck vs yours...

Mizzium Skin Added Protection

Windswept Heath swamped out a land that could come in tapped

Fog Bank great for that tron or a bigger mob

Aura Shards just broken in this deck kill everything!

Congregation at Dawn tutor for Tetsuko

Slaughter the Strong Another board whip but not mine!

Teyo, the Shieldmage Hexproof plus wallsnot to bad...

And here is what I don't have in mine...

Thallid Shell-Dweller I really do this this is poop and we can have a better card I hate saplings lol

Mana Drain Don't have another or I prolly would or a Force of Will If I could.

Meekstone Our walls are bigger than most creatures. With Tys out we run through them anyways.

Sacred Rites Deffo not to many ways for this to go wrong.

Sunpetal Grove open hand means this could come in tapped and not a fan of tapped chanced duals this is a fast deck.

Perimeter Captain not to keen on this card but who knows it's an option.

Wall of Deceit it's ability is poop. pulled him out.

This is our only differences in our decks. Like I said it's too strong to play with my friends, so I've been trying more casual decks for fun.

I doubt you're gonna be happy with Sacred Rites but the other changes look great!

thcue Yes, that's exactly what you can do with spare mana and Wall of Deceit . I'm probably removing Shield Wall for Sacred Rites , but Shield Wall often gave me the final ~10 toughness to kill someone instantly. People often tend to unterestimate it. Thanks for the 200th upvote btw!

passascats on Arcades EDH Defender Deck

So, I've only been playing with my Arcades deck a little, so this advice is based on my experience which is limited. Arcades only lets creatures with defender deal damage based on their toughness, so all the big butts you have are not going to turn into massive damage. if you load your deck with low cost defender creatures with big toughness (e.g. Steel Wall), you will have more cards in your hand than you need, Arcades is that good at putting cards in your hand (all that is to say, I don't think you need a card draw sub-theme).
Vigilance is awesome in a deck like this so Brave the Sands and Always Watching are better than they seem.
Meishin, the Mind Cage is hilarious. I've only had it out once, but giving your opponents creatures -7/-0 while you swing in with a Wall of Frost just feels good.
Some other cards I would consider are: Wave of Reckoning, Triton Tactics, Sacred Rites, Mizzium Skin, Bar the Door, and Wall of Faith.
Good Luck!! this deck is super fun to play with!!!
