Glaring Spotlight


Creatures your opponents control with hexproof can be the target of spells and abilities you control as though they didn't have hexproof. 3, Sacrifice Glaring Spotlight: Creatures you control gain hexproof until end of turn and are unblockable this turn.

Arcane Lighthouse can let you ignore some protection on a creature, letting you grab what you want. There is also Detection Tower and Glaring Spotlight, none are necessary if people never use those abilities though.

It's a bit harder to work with than for Merieke, but Retreat to Coralhelm isn't bad with some manner of sac outlet, or perhaps with some haste source like Lightning Greaves, so you can steal something nasty, swing with it, play a land to untap Rubinia and then use her to steal a great blocker. Not sure if the feel would be off, but Martyr's Bond really likes stuff like Miren, the Moaning Well, or any other card that involves sacrificing something of yours. While most religions have had persecutions in various times and places, not many have been as targeted as the Druids were, or the Wiccans.

Would Mother of Runes fit your deck's theme? There are a few arts to choose from, not sure if any have a Druidic vibe, but Mother is a great way to protect key creatures, or make them harder to block. TBH, the OG art does kind of remind me of a 'nice witch' type, the kind very good at helping and protecting.

Felidar Retreat is a pretty solid landfall payoff that has some synergy, not sure if Druids like Felidars or not, but cats are at least associated with Wicca in pop culture.

Hope some of these are relevant to what you're trying to do!

This is a really good build you have put together here, my buddy Xxere is building something similar. Cards like Rite of Replication and Keiga, the Tide Star can really sweep for game. Love that you included Glaring Spotlight because that can be so choice in matchups. Good luck!

Nice build! I love wall tribal, and with Bant colors there's a ton of possibilities. One major downside to wall tribal is, as you mentioned in your description, the fact that they need to be able to deal damage as well. I recommend running more than two cards in your 99 which allow you to assign damage equal to a defender's toughness. The reason I say this is in most playgroups, you'll run into folks waiting to cast removal on your enchantments (or Arcades himself). That being said, run a lot of counter spells or flicker!

Here's a small sample of cards that I especially like in my wall deck:

Rolling Stones or Huatli, the Sun's Heart for an additional two defender enhancements. Glaring Spotlight or Ghostway for protection. Wave of Reckoning might be less niche than Slaughter the Strong, but both are nice cards. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Stoneskin are always a fun combo.

Please stop by my build as well as provide some feedback as well!

Thanks for sharing your deck

Out: Wall of Roots and Secret Door

In: Robe of Stars and Glaring Spotlight

I'd like to play test Robe of Stars and Glaring Spotlight in this deck to increase protection of my creatures. To make room for these two cards, I removed what I think are the weaker Defenders in the deck in terms of payoff.

Sorry couldn't edit my above post...

Add Glaring Spotlight to the list of ideas. It's a great card for Infect!

borneuw thank you so much for the comment!

After looking over the 3 cards, I am not going to consider Glaring Spotlight because I don't really think it has a place in the deck. I agree that of the 3 it is the weakest.

Shadowspear and Arcane Lighthouse are really strong options. I love that Arcane Lighthouse enter's untapped and has good utility. I could very easily throw this card into the deck. Shadowspear makes me think about how I can utilize the card's effect more than once If I really have to. Since it will be destroyed by Child's death trigger, it feels like a tough sell compared to Arcane Lighthouse. Now, that being said I do think that Shadowspear is the best of the bunch because of it's ability to hit hexproof and indestructible at the same time while also providing some sustaining lifegain. Which can be incredibly important if we were behind in getting Child on the board. This in combination with Diamond Valley can net us a huge buffer when our opponents begin to see us as a threat. Not to mention just how brutal 7 commander damage is for our opponents.

I think at this point either card could easily replace maybe one of the neon dynasty lands with channel like Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire. I'm gonna add both to my maybe list to keep in mind if I find that I need more tech in that department.
