    I love this idea and the way you describe it sounds wonderful!! I think it would be amazing to be climbing through the snowy cliffs and find a giant ruined castle! Perhaps this could be combined with this post: https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360057744531-Pillager-Fortress by Joseph Rahner that talks about a fortress for pillagers. There could be Ravagers surrounding the outside, Pillagers and Vindicators patrolling the inside, Witches and Evokers providing an extra challenge throughout. I figure it would be more like the Illagers conquered and occupy the fortress, rather than that they built it. This would provide a challenge similar to a raid with the combined force of all of the Illagers, but instead of them attacking on the village, you would be attempting to infiltrate them. Otherwise this is awesome and I hope it gets implemented!

    I absolutely love the idea. So much potential here.
    I think snow, and ice cap, biomes could use an update like this to help make them a bit more interesting. As awesome as the ice caps look, they don't affect the gameplay all that much so I definitely think this would add some adventure and variety to those biomes.

    This could open up endless opportunities in the future, and just think about how mystical that could look! Fantastic idea!

    These "stronghold" should have angry iron golems in it.

    I love this idea. Mountain biomes, besides the challenging terrain, are still very basic and have little creative qualities. However, I don't think they should have to spawn in snowy mountains - maybe all types of mountains, and just be super rare.

    Geisl01 seemed to have a sort-of similar idea. I would totally support it.

    Some of them could include small dragons that guard treasure and there could be a helmet that looks like a crown in the throne room or something.

    I like this Idea maybe pillagers could sometimes storm these towers as varation to mobs 

    Another thing with this I would suggest is pillagers,illagers.vindicators actively Hunt wraiths and strays

    A new boss???? 

    YETI/BIGFOOT can spawn as brown or white, the white yeti is the boss (like the elder guardian) Brown Bigfoot are like guardians. strays, of course, help out in the fight with the yeti/bigfoot. This would be extremely rare and hard to beat, much like the ocean monument or woodland mansion.

    There could also be a hidden stronghold found below the castle, with mazes, mobs, redstone traps, false strongholds, and historical documents(books and quills with incomprehensible writing in lecterns)  guarding it. The stronghold could hold this powerful special loot found nowhere else.

    Uh huh. Yes. But leave this for 1.18 because 1.17 has gotta be the caves update. Come on.

    But also yes. Maybe illutioners can actually now have spawning conditions.

    How about instead of just abandoned castles there's abandoned villages as well.

    These villages could be overgrown will vines, trees and grass.

    Maybe even ruins too that have a new decoration block and a chest with starter game loot like leather armour, stone swords, bread, coal and sticks.

    How about a castle of ice and snow which also have a basement of some sort but is near the ocean and that underwater part has an entrence at the mouth of a cave near underwater ruins patroled by guardians. The inside of the castle are like the dungeons with inhabitants like strays and also design and such as frozen indoor water fountains.

    Maybe the Structure could have Snowy Fox Statues or Polar Bear Statues. Maybe new mobs would spawn there like a Snowy Tiger, Snowy Owl, or maybe a new Illager, the Frostager which could give you a frostbite effect if near the Frostager. And maybe it could be the only mob that would spawn with a shield too!

    An idea for a new monster for this construction could be a zombie variant. There are already Strays for Skeletons so why not one for Zombies?

    My Idea would be called Dregar, it would have purple skin and wield a shield and hatchet. Or maybe a waraxe if thats ever in the game.

    I think that durability would have to apply to shields in that they'd lose durability when hit or have axes be able to chop through shields and cause damage. 

    Honestly thats a combat update issue. At the very least a Dregar would wield hatchets and be able to freeze players when hit.

    Ive already built some mountain top citadels in my world out of cobblestone. It would be nice to have these generated naturally.

    Maybe pillagers could live here? With their own unique snowy fur cap? That would look cute :D Also, NO DRAGON EGGS.
    Maybe a ravager or two in the dungeons of the larger castles?

    Great idea! Maybe there could be chests with slowness arrows for an even easier way to get them (I know you get them from strays)

    Yes! The only reason I go in snowy biomes is to find the ice spikes biome. Great idea, but what material should it be made out of? Stone relates too much to a stronghold, and dark oak is like the Woodland Mansion. Maybe a new type of stone block? I'm not sure.
