    This listing is for a complete 100 card custom EDH deck featuring Arcades, the Strategist as its Commander. You will also receive 100 complimentary sleeves to protect the cards! Shipping to the US is FREE and will arrive via USPS Priority Mail.

    Walls are one of Magic's most iconic creature types, but Arcades takes their glaring weakness and turns it into a huge advantage. Not only do we get to draw extra cards with every creature we cast, they are all super cheap and essentially act as huge aggressive creatures. Some creatures like Overgrown Battlement, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, and Axebane Guardian give us even more advantages for playing a Defender strategy. We also get to turn some otherwise mediocre cards like Tower Defense, Bar the Door, and Solidarity and turn them into cheap mega-Overruns. Your opponents will underestimate your Wall army and find themselves dying out of nowhere to one of these!

    We can also take advantage of the fact that we're built around creatures with no power (and that don't care about power). Cards like Meishin, the Mind Cage, Solar Tide, and Slaughter the Strong give us overpowered one-sided board wipes or lockouts. Creatures like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive make it very easy to finish the game.

    Finally, we can take even further advantage of Arcades' card draw ability, since it triggers every time a creature enters the battlefield, not just when they are cast. Cards like Eerie Interlude and Semester's End play double duty at protecting our team from an opposing board wipe, and drawing us a ton of extra cards when the creatures come back. Teferi's Ageless Insight does a lot of heavy lifting at letting us "go off" as well.

    To round out the deck, we've included several 2-mana ramp cards, since casting Arcades on turn 3 makes the gameplan come online so much faster.

    The exact 100 card decklist that you will receive is listed below and displayed in the images. All of the cards will be authentic English Magic: the Gathering cards, with a mix of Near Mint and Lightly Played conditions. Please keep in mind that for cards with multiple printings, you may receive different versions than pictured depending on which versions were available in our inventory when we built this deck.
