Saccox, Thank you, I wasn't aware of the Moon-Blessed Cleric.

I originally restricted myself aesthetically to "walls" as a theme, but the deck needs to be fine-tuned — it's redundant to have Assault Formation and High Alert together. I was using Muddle the Mixture to transmute into Assault Formation in a worse-case scenario. I was thinking of refining the deck with a set of Drift of Phantasms to be transmuted into a 3-CMC card "High Alert", and Moon-Blessed Cleric might give more assurances to tutor up the cards I need to "combo off".

A deck like this would really benefit from Assault Formation and Huatli, the Sun's Heart

Hey NonetheWeisser thanks for the suggestion. I didn't put it in because I have quite a few cards like Dauntless Dourbark and Dungrove Elder which already have same power and toughness. Also the activated ability is not super useful because I have no defenders anyway. Maybe I just don't understand the use of Assault Formation? Let me know if you have other thoughts!

Have you thought about cards like Assault Formation?

I realize you'd have to add , but High Alert is simply that much better than Assault Formation if you play actual defenders, and not just 0/X creatures.

I love it! I think that this is such a cool take on a defender deck. I wonder if you've considered Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, which can make defenders unblockable if made into attackers through Assault Formation.

Also, Axebane Guardian can help you ramp into Colossus of Akros very easily, and Wall of Runes makes a great choice for early-game play to keep your hand looking good.

Overall great deck!

passimo. Interestingly enough, I can't seem to play black at all - I struggle so much with the balance of sacrifice for gain. I don't want to give up my things. ANY of my things. So pretty much none of the decks I play that aren't 5 color include black. And what is my favorite color combo? I have Elf decks, wolf decks, a goodstuff token deck, a deck that is filled with creature lords like Veteran Warleader , a lifegain deck, and a unicorn deck that has no tokens at all. I at one point had a GW Assault Formation infinite combo deck that has since been retired due to unpopularity in my playgroup. I do think you're on to something, though, with the disconnect between black and Selesnya!

I suggest you splash green, because the 4x Call the Gatewatch should be 4x Assault Formation
