@ SaltyWizard: Wakestone Gargoyle without switching combat damage from strength to tougthness is for most creatures not worth the effort. And if Arcades, the Strategist or High Alert are on the battlefield I do not need the Gargoyle.

Indomitable Ancients I will consider, but mostly I prefer a creatures with defender for the card-draw with Arcades.

Have you considered Wakestone Gargoyle as an attack enabler back-up or Indomitable Ancients as a giant beater

I feel as though Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle or Rolling Stones is too good not to include here- a heavy green element can be easily supported as the entire colour loves searching for basics, and also gives access to pure value in Tower Defense and Wall of Mulch .

Other than that, Fog Bank , Teyo, the Shieldmage and Wall of Runes are all worth a look.

Indomitable Ancients - Vanilla, sure, but 10 damage if you swing with it

Wakestone Gargoyle - Redundancy in case something happens to arcades

Meekstone - Don't let anyone with big things untap!

Retribution of the Meek - It's basically a cyclonic rift that destroys creatures

Howlstone Gargoyle

Artifact Creature - Gargoyle

Flying, Defender

At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional card.

Discard your hand: Until end of turn, Howlstone Gargoyle may attack as though it didn't have defender.


Current thoughts circle around designing gargoyle cards. Cards like Wakestone Gargoyle, Voidstone Gargoyle and Nullstone Gargoyle define their power basically by which material they're made of. So what if there'd be a gargoyle made from a material taken from the Howling Mine? This would be this creature. It's a slightly undercosted flyer with integrated symmetrical value and a seemingly harsh cost to be able to attack. Thoughts?

That use of waxing moon is so off that I have to admire it. A card you might like is Bident of Thassa. Both the triggered and the activated ability are great with high-toughness creatures. I'm currently building gargoyle tribal and stumbled upon Wakestone Gargoyle. It would be a nice addition if you were to splash white. Oh, and from my turtle deck I've learned that Profaner of the Dead can be an awesome sweeper.

My first deck was a really terrible treefolk tribal deck back in the days of Lorwyn and Morningtide. Unfortunately, I was mostly building with second hand cards at the time and tried to make due with Traproot Kami, Doran, the Siege Tower, and (I think) Wakestone Gargoyle. Eventually I figured out what I was doing and went full on with Bosk Banneret, Dauntless Dourbark, and Leaf-Crowned Elder; although, the process took over a year.
