Slagwurm Armor Discussion

I want you know that I did some changes. Get a bit faster, get a bit more Control and more consistent.
What do you think about that? greetings!

One of my friends runs a 70% Doran, the Siege Tower with the good treefolks and some big butt guys. It's always an interesting match with our decks, as generally you need to answer Doran, but sometimes it's good to leave it there. Has fun interactions overall and can turn into a Voltron out of nowhere if you use wraths like Fell the Mighty + Slagwurm Armor on Doran. At last, my friend doesn't run it, but there's still the option to throw a Meekstone in there, just saying.

To clarify, I never said Teyo is the card to go here, just that he's better than misako :) If you want to try him out at all in commander, this is probably the only deck where he's worth mentioning. Yeah in my meta arcedes would never stick for a turn cycle. This deck is easily thwarted if you never let Arcedes, High Alert or Assault Formation stick, so being able to fight through that is a must. If you face many counterspells Autumn's Veil is a great addition here as well. I dislike Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots here since you don't get much for their cost. Ideally this deck goes someting like:
The nice thing about this is that noone is ever gonna remove or counter your walls. You just need to get Arcedes through. Cards like Force of Will Pact of Negation can help here in an extremely counter heavy meta if you want to play arcedes on curve, or you stay back build up to like 30 Damage wich on T7 onwards is often nearly lethal for a player and then play Arcedes for a big swing. Hardly any playgroup will let him stick for long since he also draws a lot of cards, which makes him so good. If you give him hexproof or shroud all you do is force out a sweeper which you don't want to happen at all, so counterspells are clearly the way to go here imho.
Changes I would do right now:
Cut: Masako the Humorless doesn't do enough Fog Bank 2 mana 2/2 flyer doesn't seem so good Skyshroud Claim ramps you when you're done ramping. average cmc of the deck is 2.2 Perimeter Captain cut for Wall of Runes Island Average cmc of the deck is 2.2
On a Budget add: Slagwurm Armor Might be really good. Will never get removed and 3 mana for +6 seems kinda broken Geist of the Archives Smooth out draws a bit Rampant Growth Fixing and Ramp Meekstone Defense Autumn's Veil Protection/Control

I have a few ideas.
I see you run some buff enchantments in your "Voltron" section that could probably be replaced with some pretty valuable equipment.
I would look into Slagwurm Armor . This isn't a buff but actually makes for a harder to kill Nightveil Predator . A 3/9 Nightveil is crazy hard to deal with. He blocks and kills pretty much anything. Helps him to stick around so you can hook up your Bow. And, you can fish for it with your Trinket Mage .
I think there are better cards that can go in for Sinister Strength , Dark Favor and Twisted Experiment . Although you may have a reason for running them. I'd also be curious to know why. I think equipment have more utility as they stay on the field and can be moved around from crit to crit.
Also, I would take out the Seat of the Synod and the Vault of Whispers . Just replace them with basics. The lands being artifacts are easier to remove as there are lots of items people play that can target artifacts. I would rather loose a piece of equipment than a land.
I run Ashes to Ashes as well and have been seeing that it sits in my hand for a while due to it being so situational. I am actually considering replacing it with Ob Nixilis's Cruelty . I pretend I have it in my hand rather than the Ashes during games and I essentially could make more use of the Cruelty. Could just be my meta.
Other than that the deck to me seems solid. What are your matchups like? You having any issues against certain decks??

Thanks for showing up. I hadn't recently updated this deck so I must reconsider some cards.
Speaking of cards Wall of Swords and Tree of Redemption aren't worth their costs. The former dies to our most one-sided boardwipes while the latter doesn't have Trample so it's 13/13 that gets easily chump-blocked. That's why I'm more excited for cards like Angelic Wall or Wall of Runes since they have very 'low to the ground' CMC and aren't that much weaker.
I also used to run Slagwurm Armor but if you use it after you cast it during the same turn it's for +0/+6 without any protection, which screams "JUST SWORD ME MAN". Better option would be Lightning Greaves , which protects the general and combo pieces if needed.
Consulate Skygate might be an option but this is my more budget-oriented casual-competitive deck. Main reason to use it would be two words: Mox Opal , because it's upping the number of artifacts you play, while still being a Defender with all the benefits that come with it. Until then I'd stick to Angelic Wall since I'm a bit too afraid of creature removal.

I like your deck, strong pillow fort with alt win conds. For another flying wall, consider Wall of Swords , 3/5 defender with flying. Slagwurm Armor is another nice card to add, I use it on Arcades, the Strategist when the commander tax gets too high to keep her around for longer. Consulate Skygate is another defender with reach you might consider, and Tree of Redemption is a worthy investment.

Hi multimedia, thanks for your suggestions. This was the first commander deck I've ever built, kind of like my little baby, haha. I have a few cards on the way for it, Tree of Redemption , Land Tax , Slagwurm Armor and Brave the Sands . I had Saruli Caretaker in the deck previously, took it out for some land search cards to get Rampaging Baloths going. I've previously searched for Wall of Denial at a decent price, but limited availability made me give up. Postage to Australia from the US or Europe is another factor, hahaha. I will keep your suggestions in mind for future acquisitions, as many of them would work very well.
As far as my cut list goes, Fountain of Renewal , Chaos Wand , Deep Freeze , Worldsoul Colossus , Suspicious Bookcase and Guardians of Akrasa are there because they do stuff, but not great stuff if that makes sense? If you have other suggestions on what to cut, I'm all ears!

I feel like this deck could benefit from a little more vigilance and possibly some equipment. Slagwurm Armor and Accorder's Shield come to mind. Brave the Sands is also a great enchantment for only two mana.
