Colossus of Akros Discussion

This is great, just a couple suggestions.

Overgrown Battlement is just awesome, and allows really fun cards like Colossus of Akros. I do think you could drop some of the non winner defenders like Stalwart Shield-Bearers and Oona's Gatewarden to put in more game ending cards like Vent Sentinel, Souls of the Faultless, and definitely one more Axebane Guardian, he is the bread and butter. Axebane Guardian with Overgrown Battlement would also combo great with Banefire or even Exsanguinate. Since you are running Assault Formation and Doran, I don't think you need 3 Wakestone Gargoyle. Play with the numbers on it, but you want more than 3 cards to cause instant death.

Turn 1 Perimeter Captain. Turn 2 Overgrown Battlement. Turn 3 Axebane Guardian, tap Overgrown Battlement, play another Axebane Guardian. Turn 4 Vent Sentinel. Turn 5 just laugh maniacally and tap your mana defenders to Banefire or Exsanguinate. Vent Sentinel anyone left standing ad nauseum and you don't even need Assault Formation.

Overall looks great, just trim some of the auxillary cards and focus on the killing blow.

Remove either Worldspine Wurm or Phyrexian Processor for it if you really want it. Don't put in the archive. Lifegain is already a sort of meh way to generate resources. A card that increases this isn't really all that amazing here. You can axe Colossus of Akros for the archive in Daretti.

You know, with all your ramp, Colossus of Akros might be a solid alternate win-con. Feel free to check out my deck: The Best Offense....

Your mana-costs are terribly high. You should consider better manafix due creatures. If you take Palladium Myr and maybe splash white, you can make use of cards like Tempered Steel and Dispatch. especially Colossus of Akros and Stuffy Doll are a little bit overkill 4-times. And Golem Artisan is a little bit useless here, because it's only affect itself and the colossus with it's second ability, and his first one is cheaper avaible -> Tempered Steel, Chief of the Foundry, Steel Overseer (and maybe Master of Etherium if you splash blue). And if you aim to destroy everything what hasn't indestructibility and use white, why not use Day of Judgment or Scourglass?

Have you seen Emrakul? I don't think he cares whether he's "legal" in commander.

Otherwise, Artisan of Kozilek and Colossus of Akros are both good colorless cards.

Some cutting ideas if you want them.

Hibernation's End, and Abundance both turned out to be too slow for me.

Colossus of Akros is meh

Hornet Nest is too defensive I think.

Concordant Crossroads is one I go back and forth on. I love it, but it has hosed me before.

I always try to use it, but Whispersilk Cloak just never seems to do much for me.

Colossus of Akros+Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Assault Formation is one of my favorite combos. I highly recommend trying it out. If you were you were going to try that, I'd put three or four Sylvan Caryatid for ramp. Could also throw in some Courser of Kruphix Might want to put them in anyway for more mana fixing. Never hurts. If you wanted some removal you could splash some black for Grim Contest or Kin-Tree Invocation for some real fun. Possibly a few Brave the Sands so you can attack and then still block the turn after.
