Colossus of Akros Discussion

Alright, response Part 2:
Colossus of Akros, like any monstrosity, can only be used once per the text. I actually just added Sun Titan the other day to the list because my opponents WILL counter or destroy Mayael's Aria if they know it's my win-con, so Titan and Eternal Witness are ways to get it back. ...
Mirri's Guile is good, generally speaking, but the manipulation it does does nothing for Mayael directly since she goes after the top FIVE, Guile is used more effectively with Courser of Kruphix/Oracle of Mul Daya and Into the Wilds to keep lands off the top so Mayael hits more creatures. ...
Swords to Plowshares is good removal, but I don't want to go too heavy on creature removal because the intent of the deck is to just be bigger, it's really just cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One and Thraximundar that really shut this deck down HARD, and I've got some removal, but that's at the TOP of the wishlist when I want more! (at which point I'll have to order one) ...
Elspeth, Sun's Champion does feel like an odd duckling here, but her abilities seem relevant since this deck gets beaten 100% of the time it doesn't answer the aforementioned threats quickly. Dropping tokens by the fistful lets this deck go wide and covers up the glaring Achilles heel of just being deep. Her second ability helps clear the board when it gets bigger than me, and I've never ever seen a player who popped her ultimate lose a game. Nothing says WTF like flying wurms and other winged fatties! Lol. ...
I had Garruk Wildspeaker (probably the weakest Garruk iteration) in here at one point, but he was DRASTICALLY overrated, doing very little for my board, ever. Karn is good, but he's WELL above the budget here. ... Mighty Emergence is another card that feels underwhelming at times, but it's in the list almost entirely for ONE reason: To always have the bigger dude. In other words, when everyone wants to Clone my 15/15 Worldspine Wurm, I'll have a 17/17 Wurm since Clone doesn't copy the +1/+1 counters on the target. ...
Keep it coming if you like :)

Hey man I would love to chat some nayan beefcake with you! I read your meta is heavy blue but even so more often than not it seems you would be triggering mayael's ability more than casting creatures so Spellbreaker Behemoth seems like it may be underwhelming. And about Mayael's Aria and your Colossus of Akros there is Mossbridge Troll to think about as another wincon with power 20 or greater. And I've never played with Colossus of Akros can he be consistantly monstrosity-d? Deck top manipulative cards are good with mayael so maybe Mirri's Guile and Scroll Rack to go with your Sensei's Divining Top? I would add Swords to Plowshares to give your Path to Exile a non identical twin. Elspeth, Sun's Champion doesn't seem that impressive, her minus ability goes against everything this kind of deck stands for. Maybe one of the Garruk's or Karn Liberated as a PW substitute? Mighty Emergence seems a tad weak, a deck like this runs the biggest and dumbest heavyweight hitters in the game, it would be good to add something a little more than just more beef. All of this is of course suggestions just to be taken as food for thought of course!

Ohoho it seems as though you have stumbled upon my specialty~! Care for some tips?
-Power Artifact or Rings of Brighthearth with your Basalt Monolith equals infinite mana. You can filter that through Master Transmuter to dump your entire hand onto the battlefield. Bonus points if you use Kuldotha Forgemaster to tutor up whatever wincon you have. Or just Planar Portal or Ring of Three Wishes whatever tf you want.
-Artificer's Intuition is great for hitting your early-game mana rocks. Trinket Mage does the same thing. On the other side of the spectrum, Treasure Mage hits your high-CMC artifacts, which is good if you want to get out something like Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, or Colossus of Akros.
I'll probably think of some more later. :P
