The Watchers on the Wall (Bant Defenders)

Modern* Casual Combo Defender GWUB Ramp Theme/Gimmick Wall


Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

The core of this deck is Axebane Guardian and Freed from the Real. These two combined (add on some Swiftfoot Boots for protection) and you have infinite mana aslong as you have atleast one other defender on the field. Combine this with an Assault Formation and you have infinite damage.

If they manage to get rid of your Axebane Guardian, pair Assault Formation or Arcades, the Strategist with a few Stalwart Shield-Bearers and you can usually be outdamaging your opponent anyway.

Behind these walls, hide a deadly secret. Once the mana engine is in place, drop a Spawnsire of Ulamog for ultimate shenanigans. This card has mostly been put in for fun, but it's actually hilarious how easy this strategy can be to pull off!

Suggestions, feedback and criticism are very welcome.
