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.

TrustyServantPatsy -- It holds up during the short game, but I can't disagree... it seems a little lacking as things drag out. I have been thinking about rolling Scuttling Doom Engine into it along with Soul of New Phyrexia instead of just considering one or the other. It would be fun to work Colossus of Akros in if his monstrosity wasn't so high. And yes, I will be doing a lot of playtesting with some draw options included. Card advantage is card advantage, and I hate topdecking.
Vergil_Redgrail -- I apparently have mental trouble putting together decks with fewer than 22 lands, but I have noticed the same thing. If Chief Engineer hits the battlefield early, I start to feel like I'm drawing too much land even with only 4 on the table. I have found Jace's best use (other than his ult+vault) is to send land to the graveyard every turn. So land count is a work in progress.
Obelisk of Urd : Declare Artifact Creatures, yes it works.
Soul of New Phyrexia : Indestructible combat tricks, makes opponents wary when attacking or blocking.
Haunted Plate Mail : 4/4 creature if you have none, otherwise +4/+4 on a 5/5 ornithopter making it a 9/9 flyer.
But ok yeah Colossus of Akros does suck unless you can monstrous him.
Accorder's Shield : Is nice but rotating out, should have made it clear that this is post rotation.
Obelisk of Urd : What would I even use this for?
Thanks for the comments, but could you explain some of these? I really don't understand why I'd add most of them.
Thank you all for the comment and helping me out :D
I would say Wasteland Viper, Adaptive Snapjaw, and Nemesis of Mortals are all pretty underwhelming to begin with. I imagine you're using Snapjaw primarily as a source of "fat" for the Mimeoplasm, that could easily be a larger creature like Colossus of Akros or Death's Shadow first of all. Nemesis of Mortals isn't BAD per se, but again, outclassed by a lot of other options, like Ghoultree , who again, also works great to pump your commander as he's a 10/10.
Wasteland Viper just seems meh, its made redundant by the black Archetype you already have in there, and if you want a source of instant speed removal or a combat trick, stuff like Tragic Slip or just plain old Putrefy would be better imo
