- 4x Axebane Guardian
- 2x Drift of Phantasms
- 4x Fog Bank
- 1x Laboratory Maniac
- 4x Overgrown Battlement
- 4x Sylvan Caryatid
You might like fog bank, it's one of the best defenders in the game. If you token coy it in any way it will generate a massive indestructible defensive barrier that will block flying. It's hilariously brutal against aggro opponents.

Wow, didn't see that coming! Just lost to your deck (I was playing legacy Miracles) because of an infinite mana combo between Sylvan Caryatid, Overgrown Battlement, Staff of Domination, which chained into Blue Sun's Zenith for the whole library and casting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn for the extra turn and other benefits. What I would've liked to see was maybe 1 Kruphix, God of Horizons to keep infinite mana forever? That would've been fun. Great deck!

Cool concept; +1! Windswept Heath is about $10 now. Why not throw in a playset to make the mana base more reliable?

Just play-tested this against my mono black deck (Pushing Through (Mono-Black Aggro)) and while I was able to fight through, it certainly was not easy going.
Based on the match I would recommend some hate for Pithing Needle as in game 2 I was able to name your Staff of Domination and removed your creature when Freed from the Real showed up. Also, I would cut Banefire as every time I had it in hand, I just wished it was a piece of early interaction or card draw as I was able to reliably find a finisher in Blue suns or Wave during all the games. I would also recommend you increase the number of counterspells you run as I feel that it was a little too easy to remove your creatures and you were often able to leave 1-2 mana up for something like Spell Pierce, Remand or Mana Leak.
All in all, the deck was certainly fun to play and with a little more interaction and a fleshed out sideboard I can imagine this being quite annoying to play against. +1

What do you think a budget version of this would look like
January 31, 2017 2:37 p.m.
Hamster2558 it depends on how budget you want. i would say a cheaper sideboard with answers to problems remove the staff and fancy land and replace remand with mana leak. this will weaken the deck but could still be fun.

I have the budget deck right here Budget Infinite Mana-Dork. It is just a rough draft right now.

Staff of Domination is mainly in here for life and draw not as the mana source
February 5, 2017 11:29 a.m.

its mainly local meta for killing them and their platinum angle and not to many decks in the local mate have a to many counter spells it's manly kill spells

Now thats a wall Mexico would be willing to pay for...
February 12, 2017 2:45 p.m.
Add Phenax, God of Deception!!!!!!!!!! Mill them for 60 a turn :)
February 13, 2017 10:03 a.m.
+1 in any case, the deck looks sweet.

February 13, 2017 3:18 p.m.
You're totally right. I missed the interaction between Lab Man and Genesis Wave.

I have a 5 colour Defender deck. If you run Galvanic Alchemist, you can make your Axbanes infinite mana with just 4 defenders. Just read Freed form the Real, that is probs better. xD
February 17, 2017 3:04 p.m.
why would i replace freed from the real with galvanic alchemist i see no advantage?
February 17, 2017 6:54 p.m.
So... Freed from the Real doesn't give you Infinite Mana here. You'd need Bloom Tender for that. It could give you a bunch of mana, but not necessarily.
February 21, 2017 1:37 p.m.
Turn four put your library on the battlefield, draw a card with staff, win with the maniac... wow? This is getting a +1 for sure. I love it. Reminds me of the defender deck I made in INN-RTR standard where I had ramp similar to this type and used it in a simic shell to cast Debt to the Deathless for lethal to win. Ahh... good times. Well done here.
February 25, 2017 9:53 a.m.
I have a defender deck focused around Axebane Guardian and casting Banefire for lethal. I did not know of the combo between Axebane and Freed from the Real, I will definitely be adding it to the deck and tossing in my playset of Drift of Phantasms as copies 4-8 of either Axebane or FftR, and it can also tutor for Genesis Wave so I will be adding a copy of that as well. +1 Definitely, well done.

Thanks for all the support guys I really do enjoy playing around with this deck
March 12, 2017 1:11 p.m.
I apologize for my poor memory here, but I believe there exists a green enchant that lets your creatures attack with toughness, possibly for sideboard use.
I've played with this deck before, and it gets absolutely WRECKED by counter/attack spell decks, and I believe that card would help.
OH right, Assault Formation!
