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.
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.
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.

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:
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.
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! :)
