Colossus of Akros

Artifact Creature — Golem

Defender, indestructible.

Thanks for your comments GUMMYWORM224

I was using Treasure Mage when I first built this deck.. and really only needed one Colossus of Akros. You are right though, I should add another one since I have taken Treasure Mage out of the deck.

Thanks!

@jmreas i love the deck idea,mi have no suggestion except for maybe add more Overgrown Battlement and Colossus of Akros. I actually made most of the deck except for the side board and my friends always lose. Thanks and keep it up!

Missing Colossus of Akros 10/10 that can become a 20/20 indestructible trample rampage

Also think of Gomazoa be able to get rid of a problem attacker

i built a similar deck a while ago (around $30 budget) Tatyova, Spellinging Druid so lesions i learned you very quickly get a ridiculous amount of mana on the field and card advantage isn't a problem so you need big payoff cards to use this mana, the best/most fun options i found where

Terastodon, Artisan of Kozilek, Sandwurm Convergence, Scourge of Fleets, Roil Elemental, Psychosis Crawler, Colossus of Akros

i would also recommend some more board wipes like Engulf the Shore, Whelming Wave ect

lastly in the end i went for a more spell slinging theme to the deck (which is not to everyone's taste i know) but to try to add in every "fetch land to battlefield" effect you can add in as they are all cantrips in the deck as well as ramp, evey small cretures that ramp like Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf are worth including as if you top deck these late game the are not a dead draw as they let you draw a card and thin the deck of lands.

some other less budget cards that are worth including are Ulvenwald Hydra, Solemn Simulacrum, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Tireless Tracker, Thassa, God of the Sea, Genesis Wave, Greenwarden of Murasa, Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle

It seems a bit lopsided to have so many creatures with only a single set of Banefire, a sorcery, as a wincon. 1xColossus of Akros, 1xArcades, the Strategist and 1xAssault Formation seem worthwhile.

Other possible wincons might be things like Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Impact Tremors or even Approach of the Second Sun

Since you're going for an infinite mana combo, opponents will likely make efforts to prevent you from combo-ing off. Something like Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, Vines of Vastwood, Faith's Shield, or Gods Willing seem like valuable additions.

Yeah it took a few field days before I got a handle on playing mine as well. Overall I ended up cutting the smaller walls for more options to reviving/reusing and just thriving.

So to cut imo:

Wall of Vapor Neat but over costed for it's size in this deck.

Thunder Wall Even though it is super pretty

Psychic Membrane Too small for cost and only triggers on block which you want to limit in this deck.

Guard Gomazoa Borderline on this one but I feel like it is too small for this.

Gomazoa Defensive ability that is tricky to pull off and removes one of your attackers as well

Doorkeeper Not huge and you are not running a decking deck really to abuse this. Also too many people play with graveyards which makes it risky without something like a Rest in Peace

Colossus of Akros I know he is tempting but he is hard to really abuse/recast to draw with and will draw lots of eyes at you since he swings so hard. Not worth the risk.

kiagam Thank you for the all the advice i'll most likely pick up a Bant Panorama for the ability to tutor for basics. However I have a problem with Rolling Stones, and Wakestone Gargoyle and that is I may be able to attack with my walls but it doesn't mean anything if my walls cant use their toughtness as power. As for the Colossus of Akros i'm on the fence but i'll probably add it back into the deck and Fog Bank is good but I dislike that it cant actually deal any damage unlike Guard Gomazoa which is similar but I feel is better in almost every way in this deck. Lastly as far as the Dormant Sliver and Hivestone interaction is concerned I think that both cards are at least decent in this deck especially since my playgroup has a few sliver decks so it helps control them and give me card draw or just buffs my things to the level of the other slivers.
