Colossus of Akros

Artifact Creature — Golem

Defender, indestructible.

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.

VegaBoralis257 on defender wins - fun, budget deck

Nice. I like these sort of do-nothing decks. I see that you're ending it with Colossus of Akros, but Felidar Sovereign or Approach of the Second Sun gives you a decent wincon.

I want to try an experiment to free up funds for future decks. Can I cut expensive cards by finding functional replacements or by spreading the functionality over multiple cards? Need the keen eyes of some people that can think of good functional replacements or equivalents.

Ideas so far:

Colossus of Akros + Elixir of Immortality for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Indestructible creature + recycleable graveyard shuffling.

Steel Hellkite for Batterskull. Not sure we need the lifegain & adds permanent removal.

Harsh Mentor for Stranglehold. Not sure there is a functional Stranglehold replacement.

Universal Solvent for All Is Dust. Not a wrath, but Nev's disk ant Spine of Ish Shah hit everything else the creature wraths don't. Loses the ability to hit indestructible stuff.

Worn Powerstone for Thran Dynamo. Functionally worse.

arena of ancients for War's Toll. A different slowing effect.

Mystifying Maze for Maze of Ith

geier's reach sanitarium for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

Library of Leng for Anvil of Bogardan. Not sure we need the anvil. We want cards in hand, not necessarily card draws.

Anybody got any other ideas?

TMBRLZ, checked out that link, and was shocked to see 5 cards banned in standard. Is that normal for standard? Seems like a lot to me but I've been out if standard since the days of me trying to monstrous a Colossus of Akros with Crypt Ghast, and even then probably didn't notice bans

Aladdin's Lamp and Colossus of Akros seem like good fits here. Some cards that always get into my artifact decks are Trading Post, Pentavus, Dreamstone Hedron, and Spine of Ish Sah. One card I severely underestimated at one time is Clock of Omens which has become an all star for my karn deck but with you has the potential to untap your commander for some ridiculous turns.

Classiest on Bant Defender - For Those Who Like Long Turns

N4kk1: Cancel is from Amonkhet. According to Amonkhet is allowed in modern and Cancel is not on the list of banned cards from what I saw. So, I don't see why it would be unplayable.

I like Uncage the Menagerie. I can use it to get Kiora's Follower and Wall of Omens, Axebane Guardian (which is essential to the deck) and Geist of the Archives and if I don't have a better search I can get Colossus of Akros. Lots of ways to make sure I get supporting creatures for my board. I don't remember all the searches in this game so it could be poor one just to get 1-2 creatures.

I dunno if I need 4 Assault Formations. The deck is worthless in hand if I already have it on the battlefield and this deck draws very frequently.

I do think Mana Leak is a good idea, I forgot about it completely

Chiefly the maybe board which has cards I'm currently considering. At the minute I'm looking at shaving expensive cards where I can (e.g All Is Dust, Batterskull) and subbing in things like Colossus of Akros and the manticores, all while keeping on theme.

I think you should drop all colors except for green and red, stuff in all the mana producers you can (Overgrown Battlement/ Axebane Guardian) and all the defenders that draw you cards (Carven Caryatid/Wall of Blossoms). Now that you've got the ramp and card draw to find your win cons, win the game using Vent Sentinel, Colossus of Akros, and most importantly Banefire/Clan Defiance/Fireball

cesario- on Walls Strike Back (Sub $30)

Thanks for the suggestions, @TheVectornaut! I love the Umbral Mantle + Axebane Guardian combo. Sadly, Umbral Mantle and Genesis Wave are a little bit out of this deck's price range (the goal is to stay around the $30 mark).

I like Wall of Tanglecord more than Carven Caryatid simply because it costs one fewer mana and is an incredible defender in the early game, although the card draw does make Carven Caryatid an attractive option.

Feed the Pack and Sheltering Word are great suggestions. I'm definitely going to add Sheltering Word to the sideboard, and I'll put Feed the Pack in the maybeboard for now. As for Colossus of Akros, I'm very tempted to add it in, but I think this deck has enough potential win conditions as is, and adding another might make it too unfocused.
