Tower Defense is so good, i'd run a playset. Besides that, awesome deck. I run a version with Eldritch Evolution so I can run toolbox creatures and have more consisitency.

Tower Defense could replace Bar the Door. One additional toughess, and reach, for one less mana.

Blinking_Legend probably because Tower Defense is so much better

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

Sun Titan: recursion

Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

My deck if you want more ideas:

Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

Commander / EDH Flagellum

Love the deck and appreciate how you made it kinda budget hahaha I'm slowly making my Doran Commander. I'll suggest maybe 2xBrave the Sands, I mean, if you have assault formation and tree od perdition in play, then it's gg hahaha

Another budget suggestion would be Tower Defense, I mean, people won't see it coming a +5/+5 to all your creatures for 1G!!

I've had good success with Skinshifter. In the rare events you can't find or a Doran/assault formation are getting removed, a 4/4 trample can still put in work.

Disowned Ancestor is something i've been testing. Mixed success but it's not a bad 1-drop if you feel you want to speed things up a bit.

Thought I've probably stolen more games with Lingering Souls + Tower Defense than should be allowed.

Best of luck, such a fun deck to play albeit sometimes inconsistent. Here is my list that is ever changing:

Liquidbeaver on Backwards Assault

bewarekraken: Shape the Sands is not a strict upgrade to Tower Defense, in fact it is quite the opposite. Sands hits one creature and Tower hits all of them, for 1 more mana.

albino_ninja, I like the Elusive Krasis, however as far as Tower Defense goes my reason for using it in the deck is for finishing the game fast after playing Assault Formation. Also it's fairly amusing when I use it with the seemingly random Blighted Agent to suddenly win.
