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.

i ran green devo for a while. traded in for some speed, and am currently running a green/red.
however, here is what i would run.creatures:4x Elvish Mystic ,4x Voyaging Satyr ,4x Karametra's Acolyte ,2x Polukranos, World Eater ,2x Hydra Broodmaster ,4x Genesis Hydra ,2x Arbor Colossus ,3x Reverent Hunter ,3x Nylea's Disciple ,2x Archetype of Endurance ,
artifacts:2x Dragon Throne of Tarkir ,
sorcerys:2x Hunter's Prowess ,
planeswalkers:2x Nissa, Worldwaker ,
holding Dragon Throne of Tarkir and playing it the turn after you make a monsterous Hydra Broodmaster can win a game instantly. even if you only manage to make her monsterous 3 or 4, it still makes for a 10/10 or 11/11 boost to every creature, including your ramp peons, and they all gian trample. if they dont board wipe or remove the broodmaster this is easily and attack for 50-80 with trample.
You take 16 damage. Again Colossus of Akros is Indestructible so Deathtouch and damage done is irrelevant. In order for Colossus of Akros to Trample, it must assign lethal damage to Master of Cruelties . Since Master of Cruelties Toughness is 4, Colossus of Akros deals 4 damage to Master of Cruelties , killing it, and the rest of the 16 damage Tramples over.
1- It will deal 1 point of first strike damage to the Colossus of Akros in the first strike damage step which would be lethal damage because of deathtouch, except that it is indestructible. So it is still alive in the normal combat damage step at which time it will deal 10 to the Master of Cruelties smashing him into a fine paste.
2- The Master will deal 1 point of first strike damage, which will fail to kill the Colossus in spite of having deathtouch, because it is indestructible. Then the Colossus' controller will presumably elect to assign 4 damage to the Master, killing it, and 16 to you.
Ok so 2 questions:
You might want to add Karn, Silver Golem
, its one-sided Armageddon with Mycosynth Lattice in play and some mana open. It allows you to overrun opponents with utility artifacts, especially with Darksteel Forge in play. I found that pretty effective in my artifact builds.
For some mana sinks Colossus of Akros might be fun, especially if you can put it under Prototype Portal. It's not terribly synergistic with the rest of the deck but still an option. If you get to infinite mana Myr Matrix will most probably win you the game.
Guess who's back with some updates from last Standard season!

I removed a large portion of my ramp package (RIP Axebane Guardian ), increased the land count a bit, and threw in some Chord of Calling and threats. Sadly, that meant Colossus of Akros had to go as well, as 10 mana isn't going to be as easy to generate now.
Since Codex Shredder rotated (sob!), I can no longer play the slow mill-based deck I wanted to, especially with Goblin Rabblemaster on the prowl. Therefore I have come up with this beauty based on it:
"But Ghost, that's practically the same deck only with creatures!" Yes it is, disembodied voice. Yes it is.
I also included Omenspeaker for scry and blocks. However, there is also the options to run Dragon's Eye Savants and Wall of Frost for better blocks, at slight costs. And the sideboard is not complete. What does the community think?
I'm willing to take the risk of seeing a Windstorm to give my 10/10 Hydras/Colossi Flying and deny all defenders of Flying. Any day of the week. Casual or competitive. If they can sink 11 mana to clear my board, more power to them. Then they still have to deal with a Monstrous Colossus of Akros . I'm sure I'll run into Windstorm eventually in Standard, but I'm still not worried about it. There are many other cards I worry about, like AEtherspouts . But that's what Stubborn Denial and Negate are for.
