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 have a similar deck and i have been fooling around with cards like Anger of the Gods and Pyroclasm and Bonfire of the Damned and Comet Storm. you get a ton of extra mana, and those X mana ones could blow out a game. also Colossus of Akros isn't a bad move, imo, in this style deck. ramp him out, he's a defender, monstrous him, he is game-ending.

Hey ddoggy, I was browsing around and thought to see if anyone else was using the Freed/axebane combo and found your deck. It is not bad, but could use some improvements. I am glad to see you using transmute with Drift of Phantasms. The key with any combo deck is to get the combo cards out and protect them. Other transmute cards would be worth finding. Sadly, there is only the one defender that works. But there are other 3 drop transmute cards. I splashed in black to use Perplex. Also Healthy2frog is right, Fog Bank is the shit. As a heavy hitting defender try Colossus of Akros instead of Thraben Gargoyle  Flip. If you would like to check out my deck

Drop: 1 time draws(sign in blood, read the bones, etc), grafted exoskeleton(who is even granted infect while gaining a new way to die?!), Knight of Infamy(weak), killing wave(they will pay the life in commander nearly every time as 40 plus your goal is infect so life totals matter less!), etc

Add: boosts: you want buffs and not in dire need of evasion so think Darksteel Axe, Bonesplitter, Trusty Machete, Chitinous Cloak(menace can be nice), Hall of Triumph, etc. You also want removal! Mass removal. You're low creature so think like: Languish, Havoc Demon, Deathbringer Regent, Mutilate, etc. These can clear the way to a direct hit or just give you a grip when things seem dire. Add some reanimation: Ever After, Dread Return, Necromantic Summons, etc can give you a key creature back or let you plunder a grave for a baddie. Speaking of baddies: you need some. Think like a giant eldrazi: Bane of Bala Ged, Breaker of Armies, a demon: Reiver Demon, Kuro, Pitlord, Desecration Demon, Archfiend of Depravity, etc or even a big artifact like Colossus of Akros or a spell like In Garruk's Wake or Rise of the Dark Realms. For an edh deck you have minimal pay offs if the game goes long. You're using infect; you're going to be hated. Be prepared to time well and be careful. A few generic buffs to your guys will go a long way. And some end game stuff might aid you in actually closing a game. I kept budget in mind and I hope at least something here helps ya!

ClockworkSwordfish thanks for the comment. I will have to pass on Indomitable Ancients, as the beauty of the deck comes from the ramping ability of both Overgrown Battlement and Axebane Guardian and a lot of time I will be between 6-9 mana and needing to get to 10 for the Colossus of Akros or Primal Surge and the Colossus of Akros being a defender will allow that extra ramp. So its a great suggestion but wont be added in this deck.

Exsanguinate or anything like Earthquake could fit. Anything with extort also.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip should be a must include here (got one in a draft and it rocks).

Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel could stand in as golems. Colossus of Akros or Darksteel Colossus maybe.

Cursed artifacts would mean Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip

Vampiric Link is a great card to throw on opponents creatures but OMG its hilarious on Heartless Hidetsugu.

I am thinking of swapping Confirm Suspicions in favor of Mayael's Aria for an additional win-con. I think it would pair well with Colossus of Akros. Your thoughts?

Colossus of Akros is incredible. A 20/20 indestructible trampler can't be ignored. I run them in a home-brewed kitchen table casual Urzatron deck, Urzatron 2.3, that includes Fling and Soul's Fire to get the damage through even if they have a way to stop combat damage. Works beautifully.

Both Wave of Reckoning and Fell the Mighty have their advantages.

It's not sure FtM will resolve to your satisfaction and WoR might not kill the creatures affected. WoR has worked for me ever so often, though, so I'll keep it there.

Behind the Scenes should be made room for.. but maybe not by removing removal.

I feel like Colossus of Akros could be switched out though, but don't know any heavy card which fits the theme.
