Thanks for the suggestions kamarupa!

I did actually consider Orator of Ojutai over Wall of Omens, but I figured the guaranteed extra card was better than having a flyer. However, given how often I tend to have Arcades, the Strategist in play or at least in my hand, it's worth at least adding him into the sideboard. Speaking of sideboards, Slaughter the Strong is definitely going in there too!

I also considered running Eladamri's Call but decided it was a little too expensive to run and I didn't really want to take out anything to replace it with.

I'm still on the fence about whether I want to add Wall of Denial or not. It is a really good card with amazing stats, but I wanted to keep every creature in the deck 2 CMC and under, except for Arcades and Axebane Guardian because of how vital they are to the deck. But maybe I'll add Wall of Denial in the future after some more real world playtesting.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

How do you feel about infinite combos? With a way to untap a creature for only a mana payment, like Sword of the Paruns, Freed from the Real, or Pemmin's Aura, Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement can produce all the mana you will ever need. At minimum, Assault Formation (which could also fit in here) gives all your creatures effectively infinite power and toughness for a turn.

Walls that replace themselves like Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens. Walls that have a good rate Wall of Denial. Walls/defenders that produce positive mana like Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement - these combo with things like Freed from the Real if you have a filter and you can become a wall ball deck. Lastly, cards like Rolling Stones and Assault Formation because you don't want to just lean on your commander for everything.

Prismatic Ending certainly seems better than O-Ring, I will get a couple of copies instead!

Lightning Greaves I use for Shroud on Axebane Guardian. Usually when my opponents realise what's happening, they focus fire their removal. The haste is a nice addition to be able to tap for mana too. With this deck in particular, I've got so much use out of it.

As for Arcades, the Strategist, I've been getting by okay with just two, but may put in a third copy, just unsure what to drop to fit another copy in.

@lalalalala: The issue with the scion card is that it is too slow. If you want to avoid using Tron lands (which again, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND) at least consider running Overgrown Battlement, Axebane Guardian, Sylvan Caryatid, or other mana walls. I use them in my U/G Tron list to keep it more consistent and I run Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and can get it out relatively easily around turn 6-8. Modern is a rather fast paced format and you have to ramp fast to keep up with the aggro and midrange decks. The power of the smaller Eldrazi is in getting them out early and fast, the big ones: the earlier the better but they generally have enough shenanigans in them to make playing any of them and getting them to stick devastating.

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!

If you want to focus on the high toughness aspect more, I'd recommend moving to a Walls list.

Walls wants to use the things like Huatli, Assault Formation and such to hit hard, but it also employs a High Alert + Axebane Guardian combo. With four creatures with defender in play, you make infinite mana. This shouldn't be your main plan, of course, but it is a very fun include that means that if the game goes long, and with a walls deck, it probably will, you have a big advantage.

You also get Arcades, the Strategist , who lets you draw a TON of cards and is just the best payoff for big butts period.

Walls you'll want to consider include Dragon's Eye Sentry , Excavated Wall , Jaddi Offshoot , Secret Door , Wall of Runes , The Birth of Meletis , Saruli Caretaker , and Portcullis Vine .

You also get to run the amazing Tower Defense . If you cast tower defense with a good board and High Alert/Arcades out, you sort of just win on the spot.

Think Overgrown Battlement or Axebane Guardian fit with the defenders and would let you sub out the hierarchs. With a decent mana ramp you could put out an Artisan of Kozilek or one of the assorted hydras with a cost of "X" as a backup win condition.
