Colossus of Akros
Artifact Creature — Golem
10: Monstrosity 10. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put ten +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
As long as Colossus of Akros is monstrous, it has trample and can attack as though it didn't have defender.

Hi Jayd0nlink thx for the suggestions. I think I am going to try to get lands under 1 dollar. I think I am going to add Seat of the Synod . Cascading Cataracts is a nice choice I am going to add. Since this deck is trying to get other peoples cards, I need the opponent to have cards I want. I want to take out Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , also Colossus of Akros . I know Blightsteel Colossus is an amazing add, but its not really a necessary card. Wurmcoil Engine is also usually a automatic add in most EDH decks but, ehhh, I think its going in my Daretti deck. Coastal Breach technically is not necessary. I would rather use target removal, or bounce.
Cards going in------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cards going out----------------------------------------------------------------------- - Blightsteel Colossus - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Colossus of Akros - Wurmcoil Engine - Coastal Breach - Inkwell Leviathan - Scoured Barrens - Persuasion
THX for all the suggestions. IF you could tell me how its looking, that would be great. Again, just in case, this deck utilizes other peoples cards, and hands,bouncing stuff they already casted. Letting them draw cards for our use. Helm of the Host can do wonky stuff with our commander, letting us control other peoples hands, more than one.

I was looking at your deck since I also have a Sen Triplets deck in the works, and I thought up some potentially helpful information. For instance, a nice budget way to fix all your mana to cast your opponent's spells would be Chromatic Lantern . It taps for any colour of mana as well. Down that route, I would also suggest Mycosynth Lattice , as there are some fun shenanigans that you can do once everything is an artifact. However, it has been shooting up in price recently, so if you don't already have one it might be too expensive.
For your land base, I recommend removing lands that come in tapped unless they are the ones that gives you any colour of mana. (Since you're on a budget, I understand why you put those in, but in my opinion, basic lands would just be better, unless you want to replace them with shocklands or checklands, etc.) I also recommend adding Cascading Cataracts as a way to fix mana on a budget. Adding lands that tap for any colour is a big thing in your deck, and I can see you've already been trying to do that. A few more options, depending on your budget, are Gemstone Mine , City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Spire of Industry , and Forbidden Orchard . You could also add in Reflecting Pool , because although it doesn't always tap for any colour, it's a great land. Another couple of easy includes are the three esper artifact lands: Ancient Den , Seat of the Synod , and Vault of Whispers . This is important especially with your artifact subtheme. You also might want to reduce black land mana and replace that with blue. Finally, your avaerage CMC is very high, at around 4 CMC. I recommend trying to lower your curve by cutting some high CMC cards that don't enhance your strategy. Some recommendations for cuts could ve Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , and Colossus of Akros .
Anyway, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Thank you for liking We Don't Need No Education!
I agree with Stockedfridge that you need some form of ramp, but in the case of this deck where you are planning to draw a lot already, I would suggest cards that allow you to drop lands like Exploration , Burgeoning or Azusa, Lost but Seeking .
I like that you have made a selection that is personal to you and not a Net Deck. From my experience with this commander, I suggest cutting Vitalizing Wind and Colossus of Akros to make room for the aforementioned ramp cards in order to lower your curve.

Hello, I also have some suggestions that you might like. I play my versions of the deck a bit more with artifacts and hydren.
Eternity Vessel -This one is incredible, especially if you double the charge counter two or three times.
Riptide Replicator - So you can bring a certain type of creature, which is still partly really big on the field, EACH ROUND.
Transmogrifying Wand - A great interactive tool, especially in simic.
Colossus of Akros - Need something to mana, but then indestructible and trample are already a challenge for your opponents.
Kalonian Hydra - Trample and she doubles herself with every attack.
Managorger Hydra - Perfect in multiplayer rounds, but also very strong.
Primordial Hydra - Need no further comment.

Some creature changes you might consider are Guardian of the Ages , Colossus of Akros and Golden Guardian Flip. I feel your main way of winning via Vent Sentinel is not enough on its own but I will have to think of some ways to enhance it.

Glad to have been of some sort of help! I can assure you, Goblin Welder , Feldon of the Third Path and Daretti, Scrap Savant are beyond awesome! Your graveyard becomes even more a toolbox, to abuse especially with ETBs.
Speaking of ETBs, Combustible Gearhulk is really solid: card draw in red and a 6/6 first strike for 6. Nice.
Mass recursion like Scrap Mastery is fun, that's why I run it along Open the Vaults and Roar of Reclamation ... But even more fun if it also makes your opponents sacrifice their artifacts to put nothing on the field. Not to mention,it also gets rid of things like Darksteel Colossus or Colossus of Akros .

Colossus of Akros might fit in nicely, hits hard, defendes and can double in size.
I agree with cdkime get walls that have something to them; card draw like Wall of Blossoms or regeneration, so should they die you aren't left without anything. Jaddi Offshoot might come in handy as well.
Bow of Nylea could help keep your creatures alive, pump them up and make opponents a bit Leary of coming at you.

Well, you already know, I think Azor, the Lawbringer is not the greatest pick here, but I didnt test it.
But the most I think you should replace Colossus of Akros , I think this card does not a enough for his cmc, same about Dazzling Ramparts , in multiplayer she doesn't perform that good, in my opinion. :)
