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.

Hey! I would take out the Wall of Runes , because it doesn't do much. A thing almost every Commander Deck needs is Sol Ring and/or Arcane Signet (if you want coloured mana).

Thank you both very much for you input! I went to my local card shop and made a few more changes to my deck. I had Neoform already, and took it out cause I didn't think it would gel, I appreciate you pointing that out to me.

These are all the changes I made:

Glimpse of Freedom ---> Brainstorm

Armory of Iroas ---> Solemn Simulacrum

Gruul Guildgate ---> Cragcrown Pathway  Flip

Khalni Garden ---> Riverglide Pathway  Flip

Rugged Highlands ---> Barkchannel Pathway  Flip

Hamletback Goliath ---> Mana Reflection

Temple of the False God ---> Glasspool Mimic  Flip

Seer's Lantern ---> Kodama's Reach

Wall of Runes ---> Llanowar Elves

Neoform ---> Burnished Hart

Replacing Burnished Hart is more so because it's a very curvy holo that sticks out in my deck too much, and drives me crazy lol.

Nice deck, happy to give this a +1! It's a really solid budget build, but I do have a couple of recommendations.

First, Faerie Seer is almost a strict upgrade over Wall of Runes, scrying twice as deep for the same mana cost.

You also have a LOT of blinkers, especially for how fast you're going to be filtering through your deck. I'd cut a couple of Flickerwisp and Cloudshift for some 1 mana counters, like Miscast or Stubborn Denial, to protect your board against removal.

I'm always a fan of seeing Splicers in Modern, and I really liked this build for them. Keep up the great work!

Chino90 I'd been considering Wall of Runes, but imo it just doesn't quite make the cut. The added defender means that if you draw Huatli, it'll do good blocking damage but you can't attack early. I like the scry ability, and maybe something similar is needed, but necessarily.

There is a case to be made for swapping some Opts out for it though? This deck does need draw, but potentially the scry is enough - I'll consider it! :)
