Backbone of the Alliance

(Current name based on all of the wc3 peasant's quotes being Monty Pyton references. If you got a better name, leave it in the comments).

Monty is a hero who specializes at defense and battlefield control. While he has limited wave clear and merc camp clearing power compared to other specialists, he makes up for it with unique defensive power and area control.

-Some of the strongest defensive power in the game
-Excellent Area denial/Control
-Able to repair structures without need of a Mule
-Respawns closer to lanes and team fights than most other heroes.

-Almost nonexistent waveclear and pushing power
-Terrible at taking camps
-Squishy and lacks any escape
-Needs time to set-up in advance
-Most of his team fight power depends on his tower

Replaces voice clips to an Orc Peon.

Cannon Tower becomes a watch tower armed with a demolisher.

Arcane tower becomes a Watch Tower with no roof and a Shaman standing inside.

Fortifications change from a wooden wall to a Log wall.

Call To arms makes him look like an Orc Grunt.

Lug Nut Monty:
"Much better than a Pickaxe"

Monty becomes a SCV from starcraft.

Voice lines get a filter applied to sound like they're coming through a radio.

Towers become terran themed.

Fortifications change from a wooden wall to a Mini supply Depot.

Call to arms replaces his arms with flamethrowers, changes the colors of the suit to include yellow stripes, and adds a fuel tank to the back.

Really interesting concept, definitely feels much more like a proper builder unit than a certain other hero we all know...

I like the ults, but I feel like Backbone of the Alliance could use a small buff to 60% EXP per peasant. Neighborhood Watch also feels REALLY strong for a level 20 talent, even though I like the idea behind it being sorta like Alarak's level 20. With it essentially being two full heroes, it seems like it'd be as strong as Fury of the Storm is on TLV in a teamfight, albeit with the downside being that taking one out removes half of your teamfight capability rather than just one third. Really cool concept though!
