Armadillo Cloak Discussion
2 weeks ago
Righteous Aura will protect you from crack back and Aura Fracture will keep the anoying auras like Pacifism off your cmdr. Broken Fall will keep your cmdr safe from removal. Heliod's Pilgrim to grab the most needed Enchantment for the given situation. Like Armadillo Cloak or Shield of the Oversoul or Righteous Aura .

Serra Ascendant , Rest for the Weary , Martyr of Sands , Beacon of Immortality , Words of Worship . if your willing to add green Heroes' Reunion , Kitchen Finks , and Armadillo Cloak . if you include higher power creatures you could include Feed the Clan . Baneslayer Angel , Divinity of Pride .
I am not saying you should add all of these, and they are all just options.

Although, there are ways to gain double the life from a single attack - if you attach an Armadillo Cloak to a lifelink creature, you will get life from the damage it deals twice, as cloak is a triggered ability and separate from lifelink.

Well, I think that Armadillo Cloak isn't that necessary as Arcades' deck is very defensive and doesn't need lifelink. Same thing with Crenellated Wall - for +0/+4 boost from artifact without immediate impact on the board besides drawing card with Arcades? For me it would be better to add classic Tower Defense just because it affects every defender and can be used as combat trick so with 2 walls connecting with opponent you net 10 extra damage for .
Also I prefer using cards that blink or counter boardwipes (besides Heroic Intervention - saved me so many times <3) because hexproof won't save everything you have when someone casts boardwipe. And THAT'S the moment when sac outlets really shine because when someone tries to screw you big time you just gain resources from sacrificed permaments (which would die anyway) to rebuild ASAP. But that's just meta call if your meta tries to squeeze Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Reality Shift , etc. in every deck humanly possible then I understand. However, in this case they can be used when you run out of counter/hexproof cards so you break even from losing card on board.

I think that the pauper-legal version is good enough to compete in modern, but cutting the above really hampers the deck to the point where it is no good.
You should look into which deck in pauper has the least non-modern legal cards. The answers to this are few - Burn and Bogles are the first that come to mind, where you only really lose a few cards ( Chain Lightning and Fireblast for burn, Ancestral Mask and Armadillo Cloak for Bogles).
It is a noble effort and Delver is a good place to start, as it is the one of the most powerful commons in the format, but there are so many good blue cards you cannot play...
