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.

I also have a play set of Colossus of Akros that is just waiting to be used if that would be better.

Cloud Key custa a sua vida

Helm of Awakening diminui o custo de todas as spells, nao so as suas, parece ser bem ruim.

Mindslaver e muito caro tambem, nao sei se vale a pena.

Necrogen Spellbomb e so ruim mesmo kkk.

Origin Spellbomb, Phyrexian Furnace tambem.

Sculpting Steel muito caro, nao vale a pena.

Time Sieve alem de caro e ruim kkkkk.

Voltaic Key e mais pra combo, nao sei se vale ficar dando untap em coisas aleatorias.

eu gosto de Behold the Beyond mas dificilmente isso e bom numa estrategia que nao usa o graveyard, mas bom, e barato, rola de testar.

Gruesome Slaughter parece ruim kk

voce nao tem instant ou sorcery o bastante pro Archeomancer fazer algo util. Ele e ruim num build onde tem muitas coisas pra pegar de volta, imagina em um que quase nao tem.

Colossus of Akros e ruim kkkkk

Eldrazi Mimic nao presta aqui.

Etched Champion e cara por causa de modern, mas nao e boa em edh.

Hurkyl's Recall e muito caro e toscamente especifico contra a sharuum, nao vale a pena.

e voce precisa de mais lands que 32 kkkk

Thank you for your feedback, I've worked out those single cards and added four Stuffy Doll and two more Colossus of Akros as well as four Mystic Speculation and two of those Torpor Orb you suggested.

I absolutely love the idea. I thought I would go find some card ideas to give you, but there were so many that I'll just give you a link at the end.

Some quick ones though: Axebane Guardian, Assault Formation, AEther Membrane, Archers' Parapet, Colossus of Akros, Drift of Phantasms, Flamewright, and Grozoth. And that is only a few small additions to the deck, depending on if you want to stall with defenders, attack with defenders, or just get value from defenders.

On a side note, while I like the idea of Doorkeeper, milling effectively 90 cards over the course of the game is nearly impossible. There is a mill combo with Junktroller and Tunnel Vision if you are interested in that though.

Here's the link I promised to a list of cards that mention "defender". There are 200+, but that's where I found most of these ideas here.

Thanks MartialArt, some of the cards in this deck are specialised for my playgroup. The reason why I keep Iona, Shield of Emeria is because none of my friends have mono-coloured decks (I know everyone in my playgroup well) so if anyone played mono-coloured I would either cut Iona, Shield of Emeria or play her and say "GG" and we would scoop and start again.

As for Colossus of Akros I really like that card for some reason (I don't know why), so I will keep him, maby I'll cut him if I need room for other cards, also his monstrosity makes him a 20/20 indestructible, trample so my opponent will have a hard time blocking him with a 1/1.

My deck is a hybrid between annoyance for my opponents Iona, Shield of Emeria and fun/semi-group hug Selvala, Explorer Returned and Pyxis of Pandemonium and I love playing cards like Pyxis of Pandemonium and Xenagos, the Reveler that randomly reveal cards and change the game drastically. Anything drastic is fun. So if you have any other suggestions like those and Possibility Storm randomness is key.

Hi. I was called to help so here I am.

Some cutting suggestions right away:

  • Admonition Angel: I used her before in my deck but she is simply too inconsistent. And the big problem is: If your opponent uses a Wrath of God the only one not having something will be you since it all returns to the battlefield. Huge NO in my oppinion.
  • Blightsteel Colossus: This may sound rediculous but unless you can deal with one of these on the opponents side effectively don't use it. If you are hit by a Bribery this one will kill you. And Bribery is not the only spell able to hit you hard if you use this card.
  • Colossus of Akros: No benefit at all. It is big and doesn't kill opponents. What doesn't kill doesn't win you games. And if you pump it for 10 mana it gets blocked out by a 1/1.
  • Hydra Broodmaster: This one doesn't help you here. it eats a lot of mana you could use for other things. Like casting something or using your commander.
  • Iona, Shield of Emeria: Why cutting her. You should cut her if you are playing casual commander since it is a friendly multiplayer setting. If everyone else feels fine with it ok but the mono color player will angrily leave the game. No fun at all.
  • Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas: First of all you need to cast to make him bigger so your commander doesn't count. Second your commander doesn't get him out since he is too small. Third he won't get big enough to make a difference and will see the game mostly only once.
  • Kozilek, the Great Distortion: If you don't cast him he is simply and only big. Doesn't help. If you want to include Eldrazis (wich I didn't for personal reasons) use one with annihilator so you get a benefit even if the cast ability doesn't trigger.
  • Selvala, Explorer Returned: Too friendly. Don't help your opponents ever. And getting mana is easier with other things.
  • Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger: Yes he exiles from the library when attacking but this doesn't help getting damage through. Use one with annihilator instead or sth with trample. Helps you win games faster then he does.
  • Tempt with Discovery: Too friendly. Don't help your opponent being able to cast all the answers for your cards he has.
  • Pyxis of Pandemonium: Too dangerous. Just imagine. If you get nothing and your opponent gets a Avacyn, Angel of Hope you really have fucked up. And don't help your oppnent.
  • Temple of the False God: You need colored mana. That's the most important thing. And you will hate this land if you get it and only have 3 other lands. Every land should help you with mana any time.
  • Reliquary Tower: If you have more then 7 cards in your hand in this deck you did something wrong. Terribly wrong. Better get some colored mana.
  • Iroas, God of Victory: Firstly all your things should be big enough so they won't be killed of. Even if they are killed off your oppnent will loose more. And secondly this one doesn't do well with Vigor out since you really want the effect of Vigor.

Then some suggestion:

First of all you NEED more ramp. Why? You are too concentrated on your commander. She WILL be killed and then you will be too slow. You need to be able to cast your things if she gets killed and you need to be able to cast your things in addition to using your commander.

Then your should really use the following:

I hope this helps. Greets MA.

Greyfaerie4 on 5-Colour Commander Ally deck

After the first trial, the main problem is defence.It's good with attack, and I managed to deal consistent damage with my all creatures having double strike, and some had flying.However, when my opponent had a 10/10 Colossus of Akros on the battlefield, I wasn't able to kill it. Everything else were indestructible artifacts, which made it annoying to use kill spells...Any tips?

If you are looking to replace the reach ability of Sylvan Primordial I would suggest Hornet Queen, Skysnare Spider, or Silklash Spider.

If you are wanting to replace it with just a large creature, I have several suggestions! Worldspine Wurm, Archetype of Endurance (which is good for protecting creatures), Bellowing Tanglewurm, Primordial Hydra,and maybe Colossus of Akros (one of my favorite cards).

I love green decks and this is a pretty awesome one! Very similar to my commander deck, Omnath, Locus of Awesome. +1 from me!
