Colossus of Akros

Artifact Creature — Golem

Defender, indestructible.

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.

Colossus of Akros Discussion

I run it in my defender deck along with Axebane Guardian to ramp into Colossus of Akros (I also run Assault Formation). But for 2CMC, Overgrown Battlement offers quite a lot - a body that can't be Bolted, and a huge potential for mana ramp. I can see how it might not be something you want here, but it could open some doors to higher CMC spells you might not otherwise want to consider. It's just a thought. ;)

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.

Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.

So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

Neat deck! I will always and forever suggest Colossus of Akros to any artifact deck.

+1 from me!

In case you haven't Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts would be perfect in that deck. Using stuff like Pariah And Pariah's Shield on someone like Palisade Giant Protector of the Crown (or Stuffy Doll) Plus indestructibility is bonkers. Or Guardian of the Gateless with indestructibility. And Colossus of Akros Is a stupid, but fun game ender

I may know jack sh*t about deck building but I've been thinking about replacing Steel Hellkite with a card like Colossus of Akros or maybe even Wurmcoil Engine, but what are your suggestions?

hey i definately like this deck i was considering a alternate win deck.

you might thank me or not for this but im going to give you lots of potential cards for this deck that are budget/semi-budget (note some of my ideas will not work in this deck ofcoarse)(they will be catergorized by each win con)

almost all of them

  • Diabolic Tutor (just another plane old find anything you want card)
  • Last Chance or/and Final Fortune you just cast it when you have a win con from you list ready then at the extra turn upkeep you win (examples: epic struggle = 20 creatures, test of endurance with 50+ life.) and not to mention you have Platinum Angel in the deck if its out it will counters the you lose part of both of them when the turn ends. see for yourself
  • now lets begin

Azor's Elocutors/Darksteel reactor

Barren Glory


  • Infinite Reflection
  • (the ones that can turn into creatures)

Test of Endurance/Felidar Sovereign/Celestial Convergence

Epic Struggle

Maze's End

Helix Pinnacle

Mechanized production/hellkite tyrant

Mortal kombat:pretty much any one creature from this list

Laboratory Maniac

Mayael's Aria

Near-Death Experience1.

hope this is to a help to you.

Paradox Engine is a must have. It's almost always a win if you can get it down in a deck like this. As an addition, I'd actually recommend Endless One, and before you bully me out of existence, it's actually a great creature with so many infinite mana combos and practically nothing to spend it on. I'd take out Colossus of Akros for it, and Planar Portal for Paradox Engine or Planar Bridge.
