seshiro_of_the_orochi I remember one of the original defender turns attacker cards, Wakestone Gargoyle from the Dissension block. There was a great theme deck built around it that was one of my favorites. I've always wanted to return to the theme, but I have a bant deck so I've never built Arcades, the Strategist A gargoyle decl with that theme would be good for nostalgia!

goodair Probably for merfolk tribal today we'd go for Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca , but we are missing the white merfolk from the tribe. And you're right, we certainly don't need Thrasios for that. He isn't a good representative!

The landbase seems a little too simple for a 3-colour-deck. May I suggest du add at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse ? They aren't expensive and help a lot. Primal Druid and Wild-Field Scarecrow are fitting ramp/fixing options, and Scaretiller might be worth a look, as well.

You should play copies of each High Alert , Assault Formation and Belligerent Brontodon as backups for your commander. Wakestone Gargoyle might be very useful as well.

Two more interesting options are Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Mistford River Turtle to make your walls unblockable. Oh, and a way to give your creatures vigilance seems importan as well ( Always Watching is fine for that). Three more nifty cards for toughness-decks are Bident of Thassa , Angler Turtle and Profaner of the Dead .

Keep up the work, you definitely are on a good way.

Other defenders to consider: Crashing Drawbridge , Wall of Junk , Geist of the Archives , Resolute Watchdog , Portcullis Vine , Suspicious Bookcase , Wakestone Gargoyle , Grappling Sundew

Ways to Win: Tower Defense , Tree of Redemption , Bar the Door , Solidarity , Slagwurm Armor , Meishin, the Mind Cage , Primal Rage , Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Flicker: Ghostway , Panharmonicon

Removal: Generous Gift , Arcane Denial

Other things: Search for Tomorrow , Treefolk Umbra , Brave the Sands , Guardian Project , Darksteel Plate

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a problem...pay attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

@ SaltyWizard: Wakestone Gargoyle without switching combat damage from strength to tougthness is for most creatures not worth the effort. And if Arcades, the Strategist or High Alert are on the battlefield I do not need the Gargoyle.

Indomitable Ancients I will consider, but mostly I prefer a creatures with defender for the card-draw with Arcades.

Have you considered Wakestone Gargoyle as an attack enabler back-up or Indomitable Ancients as a giant beater

I feel as though Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle or Rolling Stones is too good not to include here- a heavy green element can be easily supported as the entire colour loves searching for basics, and also gives access to pure value in Tower Defense and Wall of Mulch .

Other than that, Fog Bank , Teyo, the Shieldmage and Wall of Runes are all worth a look.
