Colossus of Akros Discussion

JRaynor on Marchesa: Political Subterfuge

I lost to Backlash in a Queen Marchesa deck once when I excitedly activated the monstrous ability on Colossus of Akros. Great underrated card.

Going to see how the deck runs with some of the big mean guys I added but if the deck has a hard time I'll be looking at taking out Lorthos, the Tidemaker and Colossus of Akros for 2 mana dorks, something that brings lands out, or a mana dork and possibly Elemental Bond.

How do you think your deck will be winning? Commander damage? Fairy Tribal? Tokens? artifacts/enchantments matter? that changes what the best cards are. For example, if your deck cares about tokens, Favorable Winds is much better than All That Glitters . But if you're trying to win with commander damage from Alela, All That Glitters will deal much more damage. Either are probably better for the deck than Colossus of Akros , I personally don't think that's the most useful.

Some other cards I'd recommend looking at, just because they're cheap and work well with the deck, are Etchings of the Chosen , Etherium Sculptor , Starfield Mystic , Faerie Swarm , Hour of Reckoning , and Trading Post

I love this idea. +1

What about Atla Palani, Nest Tender to basically Polymorph your way into the win as well? You could then also run Worldspine Wurm as another way to pump to 20.

I might also suggest Congregation at Dawn , Tooth and Nail , or Shared Summons since they can tutor up all of your creature pieces in one go.

Colossus of Akros could be a back up Mayael's Aria and it's tough to get rid of.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?
