Wall of Tears Discussion

Hello! making an Arcades deck too! My current WIP deck is here: Arcades copy

Card suggestions: Steel Wall has amazing value mana value and Traproot Kami is incredible (especially considering it counts enemy forests too). Wall of Resistance isn't great but it has a lot of potential to get big. Wall of Tears is nice as an even bigger deterrent than all your other defenders are.

The glyphs: Glyph of Delusion,Glyph of Life,Glyph of Reincarnation, have some neat utility here though not amazing. Sprouting Phytohydra has amazing recursion where every-time its token re-enters you draw another card (if arcades is out). This is especially easy if someone has a burn deck where it hits all the creatures on the board. Siren's Call is very good, especially since with all your deterrents you are sure to not take much damage if they target you and will most likely cause two opponents to both suffer. Skeleton Key is great as skulk fits perfectly with this deck theme. The second effect is just an added bonus. Warmonger's Chariot is important as you need as many ways to let creatures attack as possible. Dusk (and also Dawn) are very nice as well as Retribution of the Meek since even though they aren't board wipes, they rid the board of most threats and are sure not to hit 99% of your creatures.

Great stuff! I recently built a similar deck (Coral Capers -- (Budget Seamonsters)) and I adore it. I definitely feel ya on the nakedness!! I put in (gasp!) a few wall-like creatures, such as Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost, and Spiny Starfish. Walls are generally poo-poo'd in EDH for being one-dimensional and not actively helping one win but sometimes you just need a blocker or two. They help with devotion for Thassa too! So added functionality there. Wall of Tears is a good one as well.

I'm there with you on Ula's Temple. It'd be a great card if one was running 40+ creatures in a more low-to-the-ground aggro deck full of merfolk and wizards and the like, with the fatties as late-game bombs (and Quest targets) but getting the counters on is the hard part. When you do, though...

You need more walls to keep the Mexicans out. Wall of Fire, Wall of Tears, Glacial Wall, AEtherflame Wall, Steel Wall, Cathedral Membrane, Fortified Rampart, Wall of Essence, and AEther Membrane to name a few. And who better to look over the walls then Perimeter Captain. And Incase they get to close, Rolling Stones.

old walls from old editions don't have the defender ability, in this case Wall of Tears could be an example, does it count as a defender for the Doorkeeper ?
