Please help me add on to my Thaumiel class idea. I want it to be able to stop 106 and 682, but also be very simple. I would prefer it to be a wall but if that is lame it's okay.
Maybe it could be a living wall?
It could be huge and indestructible

If the core idea is for your SCP to stop a well-known SCP, it's almost guaranteed to be doomed to failure, as the execution requirements are extremely high to pull off.
A typical modern SCP is not just a report on an object, it's a story in the form of a report on an object. You can't just make an object that does X, you need to give it some significance as to why it does X.
Before you even touch a draft for this, I strongly recommend you read more Series II and III articles, especially the ones labelled "Thaumiel". First, when you're reading, I want you to note how such articles are treated and executed. Second, I want you to pay attention not to what it does, but as to what happens over the course of the article. Because that's where the story will be.
Try this as an exercise the next time you're brainstorming: think of an idea, detail it out a little, and then figure out what the total opposite of that would be. Often that opposite idea will be more interesting.
It's not a guaranteed thing (for instance "vulnerable dead portal what releases safe skips" is only a little bit more viable than "indestructible living wall what contains 106 and 682") but the technique does at least get you thinking outside of the generic, and occasionally you get a really cool idea out of it.
If your sole premise for this is "I want it to be able to stop 106 and 682 and simple", you should probably read more recent stuff on the mainsite. 106 and especially 682 are old things from several years ago, and they get mentioned a lot by people trying to make their stuff seem cool by borrowing from other popular stuff they didn't write.
Keep in mind that when you write for this site, you write for an audience. How will you make "it one-ups the famous killing machine SCPs" into an interesting story, particularly if the reader already dislikes 682 because it's overhyped?
