TheLordOfTime on Arcades the new leadsinger of the Rolling Stones

This is a great deck. I took a hiatus from MTG 4 years ago to start playing D&D. Now some of my D&D friends are wanting to play EDH. One of my favorite decks I ever made was one built around Assault Formation, and seeing Arcades/your deck has really inspired me to start playing again. I see that you're liking Tower Defense in this build, but have you seen Shape the Sands? It doesn't give reach, but it's a fantastic one-drop. It might be nice to have in addition to Tower Defense.

That's an interesting idea, but I think its reliant on too many cards. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive also makes things unblockable if they have 1 toughness, like Conifer Strider . If you run high power/low toughness creatures instead of walls, you wouldn't need Assault Formation in order to win.

Otherwise, Tower Defense to give your team +5/+5.

Hi there, i like what you have done but you should consider replacing some cards that have minimum utility for your deck and/or your commander, such as Eland Umbra and Aegis of the Heavens (you can have the same effects to all your creatures with Bar the Door and Tower Defense . Also i know the walls are so cheap but 33 lands with no mana rocks can really screw you in commander. i also have an Destructive Walls deck, check it if you want, might give you some extra ideas

Other defenders to consider: Crashing Drawbridge , Wall of Junk , Geist of the Archives , Resolute Watchdog , Portcullis Vine , Suspicious Bookcase , Wakestone Gargoyle , Grappling Sundew

Ways to Win: Tower Defense , Tree of Redemption , Bar the Door , Solidarity , Slagwurm Armor , Meishin, the Mind Cage , Primal Rage , Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Flicker: Ghostway , Panharmonicon

Removal: Generous Gift , Arcane Denial

Other things: Search for Tomorrow , Treefolk Umbra , Brave the Sands , Guardian Project , Darksteel Plate

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

I actually reeeally like Tower Defense - it's such a massive spell in this deck! not a lot of oathbreakers can say that their signature spell gets its mana's worth on the third cast, but this combo has huge mileage.

Sweet, sweet deck! Worth noting that Tower Defense doesn't target, but it seems spicy nonetheless.

@Cepitore - Thanks for noticing, I have been adding creatures which has a lot of value but doesn't contribute with the deck/commander. I have revised the deck now as best as I can.

@Dis4Dinosaur - Tower Defense should suffice. I don't have other cards to replace with Bar the Door in the meantime. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@SyrJet - I won't put any walls in this deck, it's been hard for me to remove the defender status of walls when it's time to all out attack, unlike high toughness creatures. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@Bezter - My problem with Builder's Blessing is that when my creatures doesn't have vigilance and attacks, the effect wouldn't be fully used. I have already bought Tree of Perdition and Karn, Silver Golem is an interesting choice, but I already have a lot of CMC. Thanks for the suggestion.

@i24 - it was just because i had that planeswalker, and i might as well use it. But now i have removed it, since as much as it has a lot of value, it wouldn't fit really into the deck.

@Chaseace3 - Thanks! I found some ideas in your deck, like Behind the Scenes and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice .. Although, I ultimately didn't include trostani, since I have a bit of lifelink, and that would overkill. Also it has specific mana color to cast.

@Bluerunt - It's the same with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice , but a lot more to cast and would increase my mana curve.
