I’ve also got a banding EDH deck, but I ran with an even sillier commander (General Jarkeld) in order to have even more combat-goofiness. I found value in turning more banders into Shield Bearer types of tools with Slagwurm Armor, and got a bunch of value out of banding an Armored Transport into the group.

I apologize if these are in your deck already, I’ve written this over an extended period of time and have completely forgotten what I saw in your list.

Love the deck! Can’t wait until WOTC brings banding back!! We’ll be ahead of the curve!!

Since You are aiming for critters with big butts I will definitely add Shield Bearer here!

This is actually a deck I really want to build, and know nothing about making a commander deck, so I'm keeping a very close eye on this deck! Some card suggestions/ideas I personally have would be:

Amaranthine Wall, I played this wall in a draft game a few weeks ago and the indestructible ability pretty much won the game for me by itself, and is what inspired me to think about this kind of deck. Manor Gargoyle is another good choice for this.

Champion's Helm, Good equipment to keep our commander safe

Doorkeeper, the mill potential is pretty high here

Ezuri, Claw of Progress, since so many walls have 0 power,

Wave of Reckoning, as another board wipe

Woolly Razorback, doesn't have defender, but is cheap, becomes a 7/7, and can block literally any amount of damage 3 times

Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Monastery Flock, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, Wall of Air, Spidersilk Armor Tower Defense as flying blockers, as this deck seems really open to flying

Shield Bearer, Wall of Caltrops, Wall of Shields, Fortified Area, Baton of Morale, Helm of Chatzuk, Formation, Remember banding? I used to love banding! I think banding would compliment a wall deck very well. Being able to dictate where your opponents damage goes is a big plus I think

Hornet Nest, Living Wall,Mindbender Spores, are other good additions.

What do you think of these suggestions? I really want to buy the cards for a deck like this soon, and your deck is a huge inspiration to me.

Banding is so un-intuitive that I think Shield Bearer is not the best choice for a beginner friendly deck.
