So in my quest to try and make as many tribal and themed decks as I can, I came across Walls on the list of creature types. This deck has everything you could want (except for an actual win condition). It's got Angus, it's got Fogs, it's got Walls, it's got huge Walls, It's got cards that steal. So please, help me make Walls something to actually fear!

The point of this deck (so far) isn't to win, it's to make my opponents groan and to have as much fun as possible with a deck full of walls.

If at all possible, help me make it win too. :D

A few thoughts:

Wave of Reckoning could be a huge one-sided wrath for this deck. Also there's the enchantment version of Silent Arbiter, Dueling Grounds. If you life Fog effects and aren't worried about being an EDH-DB, you can do Constant Mists and Life On The Loam. Beast Within has even less of a disadvantage than normal for this deck.

Some cards off the top of my head:

Vent sentinel (I know it's not in your colors, but a possible finisher?)
Sprouting phytohydra
Carven Caryatid
Soulsworn Jury
Moat (uber-expensive, but awesome flavor)
Skull CatapultWhen a castle was out of ammo, sometimes they would use part of the wall...

Hahaha you guys are funny. Time Stretch, recur it with Mnemonic wall and Crystal Shard. Force concession from opponent... I mean it doesn't get more boring than staring at a bunch of walls walking the aeons.

Too bad Doran, The Siege Tower can't roll some stones with the team :( .

I am trying to think of a card that would make the walls scary but... honestly I cannot come up with anything :( . Would milling with stones count? They kind of fit the theme:
Millstone
Grindstone
Whetstone
Keening Stone

Stone your enemies to death?

Also, where is Wall of Reverence?
And Fortified Area? Banding ftw!

Time stretching with walls will just get you decked, or punched in the junk, or evicted from the room. You gotta have something else for the win.

Spiny Starfish + Eldrazi Monument + Akroma's Memorial + Day of the dragons

And I think you should use Life from the Loam, Crucible of worlds, and Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, vesuva, halls of Mist, constant mists...You'll be hated no end!

I built a 60-card all defenders deck which is actually pretty brutal. The tipping point for making it feasible was Axebane Guardian. Add Gatecreeper Vine for gate searching, and Overgrown Battlement, and I'm able to generate a ton of colored mana. I use red with Vent Sentinel and Fireball variants (Comet Storm is ideal here). I also run blue for fog bank variants and Ludevic's Abomination for some 13/13 trampling terror (which almost feels like cheating for an all-defender deck).

I'm not sure how well it would translate into EDH. I had a friend run a 5 color wall deck that just did absolutely nothing. One wrath and his board was gone and he had trouble rebuilding. I'm not sure what your experience is.

I think that adding red for Vent Sentinel and fireball effects to use the gross amounts of mana you can get if you have Axebane Guardian or Overgrown Battlement and a lot of walls/defenders in play would help.
