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.

Take out 4 Invoke Prejudice -1 Floodgate add 5 islands-4 AEtherling +4 Clever Impersonator-2 Colossus of Akros and -2 Floodgate +4 Scaldkin-4 Biomass Mutation +4 DissolveI feel like it will run better like thisYou don't need that biomass because your master if waves will pump up elementals including the scaldkin and the clever impersonator can be extra master of waves
Just saw a cool combo on Gatherer:
Think I'm gonna follow suit UrbanAnathema.
RUG Defenders + Bloom Tender with several infinite combos/alt. win cons!
If you're going REALLY budget...Colossus of Akros is a very cheap add for a ramp deck.
Impey, your deck is very good, no doubt there (I HATE SIEGE RHINO). But you had an extremely hard time dealing with my Colossus of Akros as the Deathtouch Insects do nothing against him. I think at least a 1-of Silence the Believers would be really good for you. Although, you have access to Abzan Charm so there's your exile right there. That was really the only thing that gave your deck trouble; that and G-Hydra gets me 2 creatures so that's just advantage for me against anyone I would think. You could benefit from running End Hostilities as a one-to-two-of since it totally wrecks all my rampers as well. It's very hard and time consuming to recover from board wipes for green devotion decks. It usually means a loss for me if my hand isn't stacked at the time of the wipe.
That's something I have been working on actually. All the new removal is really tough for this deck, so I'll probably end up mainboarding Sagu Mauler and maybe another Nylea. Those being the hardest to remove as far as I know. That and Colossus of Akros, but I still worry about Utter End and Silence the Believers. I may have to incorporate some more control, although I've expressed my distaste to that already. Still, I think some Negate, Stubborn Denial, and Disdainful Stroke might be in order. I'll have to replace Interpret the Signs (reluctantly) since it wouldn't be as effective anymore. It also really sucks with Genesis Hydra in there (I've upped the count of it to 3). But that's what Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise are for. :)
I'm working on an izzet artifact build that I'd like to make control. How does it look? Should I go more aggressive with Colossus of Akros and Chief Engineer or should I take out the Goblin Rabblemaster and the Chasm Skulker for more control?
Any feedback helps!
