Major update!

The deck has been running well when I draw the right cards, but stalls out or is clunky when I don't draw good cards. I think the best starting point to smooth the deck out is by reducing the amount of counterspells to open up room for smoother mana (in the form of mana rocks), spells that asymmetrically counteract something but benefit me, and some stronger walls that - although will cost more - will have better payoffs. That all being said, here's the ins/outs.

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance... Treefolk Umbra... Mana Leak... Bane's Contingency... Wall of Stolen Identity... Vedalken Orrery... Wall of Ice... Render Silent

In: Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Snake Umbra... Wingmantle Chaplain... Brave the Sands... Talisman of Curiosity... Talisman of Unity... Talisman of Progress... Wall of Nets... Eerie Interlude... Champion's Helm

A lot of card swaps which we'll test out. Some may get reversed back in. That's the fun of developing a deck over time!

Updates!

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance

In: Snake Umbra... Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Wingmantle Chaplain

Many games I find myself interacting with counter spells too often and its very taxing on my resources, so I removed 1 counter spell and replaced it with Heroic Intervention to allow a board wipe to happen, but not to me. I also like the Umbras a lot for protecting Arcades, and want to try Snake Umbra for that protection plus card draw. Lastly, I'd like to try Fog Bank and Wingmantle Chaplain so I added them.

Have you considered any combination of Fortified Area and Rolling Stones? Both of these cards would be a boon for your walls.

The Birth of Meletis will gain you a Plains, a Wall and 2 life.

Other cheap Walls you may wish to consider are Shifting Wall, Wall of Glare, Wall of Hope, Wall of Kelp, Wall of Resistance, Wall of Runes, and Wall of Tears.

I hope this helps, thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

Xynarth,

Wow, those are a lot of cards, here is what I think of them:

Wall of Junk: definetly better than some walls I already have in there, I'll put it in!

Living Wall: It is indeed quite good, since I face a lot of board wipes.

Quicksilver Wall: The fact that any opponent can also activate it is unsettling to me, and in total to draw another card of him it would cost 7 mana, Which for one card is not worth it I think

Dragon's Eye Sentry: It is indeed a nice one drop, but his toughness is not as big as I would like it to be.

Wall of Mulch: I think this would be a nice addition, since we have quite some board wipes in my meta. I could sacrifice everything in response.

Wall of Kelp:I've also considered this card already, and I might try it out. I'll put it in the maybe board for now.

Wall of Resistance:Since there are a lot of board wipes, it will probably never grow big...

Amaranthine Wall: Same as Living Wall, I'll put it in the maybe board.

Hornet Nest: Now this is a nice card! I play against multiple atraxa's, so the 1/1 flying deathtouch will really help.

Builder's Blessing: I don't have a lot of cards that give vigilance, and I'll be attacking most of the time, so probably not.

Tower Defence, Solidarity and Bar the Door: I considered cards like this, and I might put in one, but I'll mostly rely on Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.

I don't have more time now, I'll finish the list later.

The list is a lot larger than I had first intended it when I wanted to comment... Anyway, seeing as how I'm thinking of building an Arcades myself, I thought I'd share some cards of interest !

Wall of Junk (card draw)

Living Wall (resilient)

Quicksilver Wall (card draw)

Dragon's Eye Sentry (1 drop)

Wall of Mulch (card draw)

Wall of Kelp (card draw + more creatures)

Wall of Resistance (can become huge)

Amaranthine Wall (resilient)

Hornet Nest (token generator, can then use the 1/1 deathtouch flying as chum blockers, to be explored I think)

Builder's Blessing (anthem effect)

Tower Defense (potential wincon)

Slagwurm Armor (just makes things bigger)

Solidarity (wincon)

Bar the Door (wincon)

Oathsworn Giant (anthem effect)

Forbidding Watchtower (flavor)

Geist of the Archives (card advantage)

Sight of the Scalelords (anthem)

Forgotten Ancient (another big guy)

Conjurer's Closet (flicker triggers)

Verdant Sun's Avatar (life gain)

Belligerent Brontodon (another Assault Formation)

Bramble Sovereign (more ETB effects, tokens are permanent which is very nice. Also, if paired with Panharmonicon, you can pay 1G twice, and potentially draw up to six cards. Could be explored, imo)

Let me know if any of this helps you or not :)

Hello! making an Arcades deck too! My current WIP deck is here: Arcades copy

Card suggestions: Steel Wall has amazing value mana value and Traproot Kami is incredible (especially considering it counts enemy forests too). Wall of Resistance isn't great but it has a lot of potential to get big. Wall of Tears is nice as an even bigger deterrent than all your other defenders are.

The glyphs: Glyph of Delusion,Glyph of Life,Glyph of Reincarnation, have some neat utility here though not amazing. Sprouting Phytohydra has amazing recursion where every-time its token re-enters you draw another card (if arcades is out). This is especially easy if someone has a burn deck where it hits all the creatures on the board. Siren's Call is very good, especially since with all your deterrents you are sure to not take much damage if they target you and will most likely cause two opponents to both suffer. Skeleton Key is great as skulk fits perfectly with this deck theme. The second effect is just an added bonus. Warmonger's Chariot is important as you need as many ways to let creatures attack as possible. Dusk (and also Dawn) are very nice as well as Retribution of the Meek since even though they aren't board wipes, they rid the board of most threats and are sure not to hit 99% of your creatures.
