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.

Thanks for taking a look.

And you're right I should probably run some more board wipes. I keep those two walls because of the flying.( also it's kind of a meta choice as someone in my playgroup has a Kaalia deck)

And ask for Wakestone Gargoyle and Rolling Stones while let my Defenders attack they're not attacking their defense so it that when I'm mostly swimming in ones and zeros. The dinosaur works but CMC awfully High. Thanks for taking a look at it!

@ Homelessguy yea your description is fine, im personally not a fan of combos in commander, unless its filled with a bunch of fetch cards or combos with your general, your combos do seem interesting though. if your interested in more one sided board wipes, you can also consider Wave of Reckoning Retribution of the Meek (bury means to sacrafice, meaning those creatures cant be regenerated), Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Fell the Mighty. im not a fan of Angelic Wall or Murmuring Phantasm, as only 4 toughness creatures you may be able to replace them with creatures that offer more toughness or utility, such as Amaranthine Wall, Carven Caryatid, Glacial Wall, Gomazoa, Wakestone Gargoyle, Wall of Glare, or Wall of Mulch. also your deck seems to heavily rely on arcades to be able to swing, maybe consider playing Wakestone Gargoyle, Belligerent Brontodon, and Rolling Stones.

strangewayshwc on The best offense is a good defense, am I right?

Enral, thanks for the suggestion. Homeward Path is definitely a consideration, although I haven't run into that issue yet. Usually once the drawing gets going I find Assault Formation one way or another.

However, Rolling Stones was in the deck originally, as was Wakestone Gargoyle. I decided to cut them because only roughly half of my creatures are walls (to take advantage of Rolling Stones), and neither gives the "assigns combat damage equal to its toughness rather than its power" clause.

Overall I have had not a whole lot of trouble keeping Arcades, the Strategist on the board to facilitate my plans, but I'm sure that will change after a few more combo-wins. :P

The theme deck of the hour!

You don't really want to be running Rolling Stones or Wakestone Gargoyle, because while they allow your Defenders to attack, they don't provide the essential effect of using Toughness for damage. I guess you are hoping to combo them with Belligerent Brontodon, but I would free these 3 spots for more value and efficiency.

I would definitely move Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa to the main board.

If you are going for flicker effects, you could include Venser, the Sojourner, who also provides great evasion.

I like Bident of Thassa in this deck, because forcing your opponent to crash their creatures against your walls seems like a lot of fun.
