Colossus of Akros
Artifact Creature — Golem
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 LOVE IT! Absolutely love it! The only changes I would suggest are the following:
Take out Rakdos's Return , sure it is a good mana sink but I feel either one of the mana rocks from above would be better placed, or maybe even Showstopper to finish the game out when a board wipe happens.
Have no clue to what you could take out for one of these bad boys, but I would suggest adding in something that could end the game like Artisan of Kozilek , Colossus of Akros , Void Winnower , Desolation Twin , or Ancient Stone Idol . All of these may not be Rakdos theme, but they are great ways to end a game through damage. They could be the "Center Pieces" of the show.

Vlasiax I honestly didn't thought about this before because I wasn't in need of a lot more cards but I will definitely keep it in mind and test it. Thank you.
mattmccrackin Thank you for your suggestions. For a vigilance-like effekt I use Masako the Humorless and for "trample" Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive. Vivien wouldn't survive long enough in our meta, since there is lot of hate against planeswalkers, for whatever reason. But you gave me an interesting idea and I will do some research. For Forbid to use effectively, the carddraw had to be extended. Also, I really love Colossus of Akros, but it has been a dead card in early games and even when I played him he didn't make his mana back. Most of the games I tested with him ended before he released his full potential or he died to artifact or creature removal.
thcue That is great, have fun with the deck!

I have a couple quick questions: have you considered running Forbid in here as a reuseable counter spell? With the card draw that is produced, the buyback should be easily achieved. Also I am wondering if you have found anything that gives them vigilance or additional boosts ((trample, flying, etc)? That would be highly beneficial. Cards like Always Watching, or even Vivien Reid. Also I am not sure if it was mentioned for late game aspect but Colossus of Akros would be great.

Hi there! Sweet deck! I have a few suggestions: Colossus of Akros, Heroic Intervention, Lightning Greaves, and Aegis of the Heavens all look a little too cute to me. Sure, there are situations in which they're pretty powerful, but I just think they're generally not good enough. Despite what AbysmalSpecter said, I think 3 copies of Arcades is perfectly reasonable. I also think you want a 4th Wall of Denial, perhaps a 3rd Chord of Calling, and definitely 3 or 4 Path to Exile (removal is very important in Modern).
