Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa Discussion

Love it! Going to build it! +1. I would definitely go for Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa (as suggested by MosiacMessenger), and I would change it for Fog Bank which I don't really get. Yeah, its a two drop flying but even in this deck, it is actually still just a defender as it can't deal any damage. Seems awkward?

I have seen the C18 spoilers and I am really exited about the new card that are coming with it!
This decklist currently needs to be updated as I have switched a couple things around. If you don't want to run Illusionary Mask I'd cut Brave the Sands as well. You might also want to cut Cryptolith Rite as well because I was mostly using it as a flipper for the mask. As for replacements I recently found a great enchantment for top deck manipulation, Mirri's Guile.
Just as a side note; after playing this deck more and more I've realized some problems with it. I found myself losing far to often to combat damage from standard EDH creatures (like a 5/5 flying for example), and while having low power creatures works in my favor for cards like Meekstone it really limits my wincons to one hit killers.
While Aminatou is great for putting cards back on top, I am more exited about Estrid as a potential commander for an evolution of this deck. The main difference I've been thinking about between this deck and its evolution is the abandonment of cards that limit me to 2 power (like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa). Cutting of the power restrictions of this deck opens up a whole new world of one hit killers, creatures with infect; and with Estrid as a commander I could use the mask auras (which to me seems very flavorful) to protect my creatures when they attack in. I can also have a small enchantment sub-theme as Estrid cares about enchantment and many manifest cards are enchantments.
Of course if you don't like the idea of infect or Estrid as a commander, feel free to ignore my ramblings in that last paragraph.

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

@Homelessguy forgot about Anointed Procession. I do own that too. When you first mentioned adding white, I thought of Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. Your style with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and going wide looks super fun. +1 for sure
@goblinguiderevealpls LOL also do you find other ppl taking advantage of the dubs?
@DrukenReaps Prossh wouldn't be easy. Either get attacks in early or expect to be controlled out
Marath looks like he/she gobbles up a lot of mana for sure. That's why I figured prossh was neat since the tokens happen even if he's Counterspelled. I have three other edh decks lead by elementals so it would be flavorful there too. I've seen your build before and it's rad. It won't let me upvote a second time ;)
Ghave, Guru of Spores is cool too. I have a friend where I used to live that ran it for a while. Some of these cards we're talking about weren't even printed then and it was still real good. I have a Doran, the Siege Tower deck for my fiancee and that's where most of my abzan resources lie
@MindAblaze right? Trostani takes out some of the mess with only two colors too. One of the guys in our lgs league ran it a couple games I think. It didn't "combo out" but you'd think it had with the amount of tokens produced
@Rzepkanut you're probably right. Prossh and Marath do paint a giant target on your back. What do you think about the temur idea? I've never seen that pair before, and using Thrasios as a mana dump is very useful in a standoff. He's also like tier 1.5 tho
I am trying to avoid combos for now I think. With multiple other decks that go infinite; this will add some variety. I'll literally disassemble a combo The Locust God deck if I go temur (then maybe build izzet artifacts later with the new commander decks coming). Prossh and Marath would have combos pending Food Chain
Mono green is a new idea. Shamanic Revelation, Regal Force and friends can really keep it rolling. Baru's anthem effect catches people off guard i bet when you dump excessive amounts of lands onto the 'field. Bramble Sovereign is a new addition to the token fleet. Might be worth considering. I'm running it in my Omnath, Locus of Mana deck
Thank you so much everyone for the comments!!! So many things to consider!

Good call! I like him along with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, but I have him in my Doran deck already. Might use a proxy though...

Balzeron: First of all I would like to say that I am honored that my deck has helped inspire your deck building. Secondly, I have some responses to you comments below:
Amaranthine Wall and Hornet Nest are ones that I am still considering. The indestructibility is definitely a nice ability and being able to make a bunch of 1/1 flying death touchers when someone blocks the nest is pretty awesome.
Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, and Mindbender Spores are all great cards if you are going a more defensive route. I chose to exclude them because I am a more aggressive list and I wanted big (4 toughness or greater), cheap walls.
My deck personally doesn't want cards like Manor Gargoyle, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Woolly Razorback, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, or Fortified Area as all of these cards either have power greater than 2 or pump my creatures power. I rely heavily on staying at 2 power or less so I can abuse Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.
The same goes for Doorkeeper. Mill is already hard enough to pull off with a dedicated mill deck in EDH because decks are large and there are 3 opponents. I'd rather play either larger walls or defenders with more relevant abilities.
The banding suggestions are interesting. I had to re-read the rules on banding and I did not realize it also affects attacking creatures. Those could be interesting, I'll have to think about that.
Spidersilk Armor and Tower Defense are awesome with Arcades and may very well end up in my final list. Right now I want to try out Hold the Gates over Spidersilk Armor as it has a higher upside and I already have a number of answers for fliers (Wonder, Angelic Wall, Wall of Tanglecord, Wall of Denial and Arcades himself). Since this list is aggressive, I think vigilance is actually a more impactful keyword in my deck. I already have a pseudo Tower Defense in Defender of the Order. I don't think Defender is particularly better than the Defense, but I have an old foil of it from Legions which I just really want to play.
Thanks for the comments and if you ever want another pair of eyes on your deck, let me know.
