Hey, I suggest playing defender Walls/creatures who are mana dorks: Overgrown Battlement, Wall of Roots, Sylvan Caryatid and Vine Trellis. These defenders can actually do something (make mana) if you don't have Arcades in play and they can first help to ramp into Arcades as well as give you mana to help to cast a two drop Wall the turn you play Arcades. Wall of Junk has nice interaction with Arcades, 7 power two drop and as long as you keep blocking with it you can keep playing it and drawing a card. Don't cut Wall of Mulch you can take advantage of it with Walls with cards like Dusk // Dawn.

Fun deck. +1. Overgrown Battlement will ramp like crazy. Axebane Guardian will ramp like crazy, too, while also mana-fixing. Battlement is almost certainly better than Vine Trellis. Guard Gomazoa also comes to mind as a good beatstick blocker.
Given your combo revolves around a creature and an enchantment, Commune with the Gods might be a good fit here.

I would recommend the following cards: Kite Shield, Cathar's Shield, Darksteel Plate, General's Kabuto, Vanguard's Shield, Brave the Sands, Foriysian Interceptor, Builder's Blessing, Castle, Slagwurm Armor, Spidersilk Armor, Tower Defense, Wall of Essence, Wall of Air, Vine Trellis, Vertigo Spawn, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Snow Fortress, Psychic Membrane, Pride Guardian, Plumeveil, Order of the Stars, Asceticism, Privileged Position, Leyline of Vitality, and I would go with no Planeswalkers and put in The Immortal Sun... Obviously you're not going to put in all of these cards in but now you have some more options

Vlasiax I have chosen the defenders mainly on their cost/toughness value. Some are chosen on their individual skills like Wall of Kelp or Axebane Guardian. I wouldn't tap Vine Trellis for a single green mana, since I'd need the punch but then I could have a better defender instead.Gatecreeper Vine's ability is somewhat good but it only has 2 toughness. Again I just can have a better defender in it's slot. Both cards are not that bad on their own but can't compete with other defenders.
Spell Pierce is a very strong and viable card, since most non-blue-players tap out and you can easily counter an threat. Cyclonic Rift is a very strong card, especially in EDH but for some reason it didn't make the cut, can't tell you why :)

Yeah, when I'll finally get all the cards then I'll definitely tell you how it went out ;)
Also I see that you use some walls that don't have good effects - how about some ramp in form of Vine Trellis and Gatecreeper Vine? And maybe Cyclonic Rift instead of too conditional counterspells like Spell Pierce?

that's quite an impressive list! A lot of artworks I didn't know of. But you also missed a few:
Aggression, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Archangel of Strife, Azure Mage, Blood Cultist, Crossway Vampire, Deathless Angel, Elven Cache (6th edition), Fishliver Oil (9th edition), Game of Chaos (5th edition), Inkfathom Infiltrator, Jasmine Boreal, Juniper Order Advocate, Mortiphobia, Remembrance, Snuff Out (duel decks), Sylvan Ranger (M11), Tormented Angel, Vine Trellis, Vitalizing Cascade

Thanks! I try to make my descriptions fun while trying to give an idea of what the deck does, I'm glad you like it.
I had Wall of Kelp, Vine Trellis, and Overgrown Battlement in here while I was constructing the deck, but I felt that there were just better walls. I'll have to think about Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, cost reduction is always nice. While Sylvan Caryatid and Drift of Phantasms are nice cards, I'm trying to keep the non-wall creatures to a minimum (this is wall tribal after all).
I'll have to think about Burgeoning and Exploration, so far I've play tested once and I did find that I was drawing a bunch and being stuck with lands in hand (although, to be fair I did have Rhystic Study out).
No Command Tower?!?! I can't believe I missed/forgot it. Well, that's embarrassing.
