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.

Colossus of Akros Discussion

flyinginovals on Reyhan and her pal Tymna

Because Reyhan, Last of the Abzan lets you keep your +1/+1 counters as long as you have a creature to put them on, it may be worth your while to have a few indestructible creatures so that you will have a place to put your counters if someone board wipes. My suggestions for ones that play well with the +1/+1 counters theme include Predator Ooze, Fleecemane Lion, and Colossus of Akros. Of the three, Fleecemane Lion is probably the best, as the additional hexproof really prevents your opponents from messing with it. You might also consider Inspiring Call for creature protection and card draw all in one.

eulogy thanks for the critique :)
I will most likely will switch out those cards for your suggested ones but I feel as if I put in more spells the less space I have for creatures that can defend me, and that's why many of them are low cost walls(I forgot the reason why I put in Colossus of Akros XD ). I also want to keep the deck around 60 for consistency. So do you know of any creature cards that are dual purpose (like Hedron Crab ) that have the health to block me but also mill,allow me to draw more,or gain more mana?

nice infinity combo with Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank

Colossus of Akros is useless in my opinion because u wont play that card anyway.better for this type of deck: Consuming Aberration: gets stronger the more u mill.

for Hedron Crab: use Evolving Wilds ("play two" lands in one turn -> 6 mill)

nice for Jace Erasure: Jace's Archivist / Whirlpool Rider

in my opinion, your deck consists of too many creatures that do nothing.

Raging_Squiggle on Indestructible vs Flatten

4 weeks ago

It hasn't been mentioned yet, but if you were to Flatten a Colossus of Akros after its been dealt 6 damage (combat or non-combat), it will stay on the battlefield. This is because its toughness hasn't reached 0 yet, it simply now has lethal marked on it. (6 damage, and it has 6 toughness until end of turn). you'd need to get it to 0 toughness somehow. (Tragic Slip works).

So I have been wracking a number of Ideas in my head. My one friend right now run a lot Boros soldiers that flood the field and boost each other. (His fav colour combo is easily Boros followed by Gruul) My other friend is a green player. His decks almost always have green, counters and/or Ramp. His Orzhov (one of the Only non green decks he has) multiplying ghosts that are annoying. The Tipping point for me right now is that they both use Mardu Vehicles with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship in both decks which are bastards to deal with. As it Stands I have nothing really to keep up with these guys besides maybe my Aura Gnarlid deck. tho it is being upgraded, I still want something new to really get them on their toes. I currently own a pair of Ajani Vengeant and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I know for sure I want to use the Ajani. Elspeth I'm willing to part ways with easily. I just don't know where to start. I was thinking Allies, maybe Mardu Boros or Naya. I love the way allies synergize with each other. And was considering dipping into getting Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. But I don't know where to start in terms of a strategy, Lifegain? Control? Aggro? Mid? It's easy to do Lifegain but with no real win-con besides flooding the field with allies or using Aetherflux Reservoir. I'm not sure these kinds of decks would make theirs flinch. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is of course something interesting to consider, But at around $5 a pop she's not cheap to get a playset, especially considering the flagship Pops her just for being crewed. Ajani at the very least can be used to keep the biggest things at bay and hopefully burn their mana, that's the hope atleast. That and I love Vengeant, A buddy of mine gave it to me so I could make a deck to compete with his Nico Bolas (the one who uses Boros also loves Nico Bolas and has a defender deck build around Colossus of Akros and Axebane Guardian)

Thanks man! I'm really proud of it too. And Colossus of Akros is quite the manhunk too :p

You've got a bunch of other cards that draw cards as well, Faithless Looting, Mind Stone, and Dreamstone Hedron just to name a few. And I would probably drop Colossus of Akros for it first. That card is sweet, but it's just a big beat-stick that takes 18 mana to get going. If you want another beater I would put in Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Kozilek, the Great Distortion instead. They either act as uncounter-able removal or card draw at the very least.

Also since there are so many players in one game Traproot Kami usually gets extremely large. Wall of Tanglecord and Wall of Vines are mostly there for the reach they bring, with both gone I wouldn't have much protection against flying. Wall of Tanglecord and Traproot Kami are also good sacrifices to Feed the Pack. That's my reasoning for them to be in the deck in the first place. Although I very much want to take something out for Vent Sentinel and Colossus of Akros, Elixir of Immortality isn't half bad either.
