Some colorless answers would probably be Kozilek, the Great Distortion and keeping a 4 drop in hand just in case. Null Brooch is also colorless counter spell. Also Amulet of Safekeeping will make him have to spend a little more on his Settle the Wreckage

Working on a Kozilek, the Great Distortion edh, what are some awesome colorless combos that should be added? Kinda moving towards a Winter Orb based kinda feel but not Static Orb so I can still use artifacts for mana.

Colorless. He can go in any deck, and if he is your commander then all cards in the deck have to have a colorless identity. (Since "colorless" is just the lack of a color you could also think of it as "no color identity". Either way Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Sol Ring have the same color identity, so whatever you think of Sol Ring as having.)

Currently working on an honorabru blue deck featuring Kozilek, the Great Distortion at the helm. The idea is to drop Eldrazi threats and protect them with Koz/light stax. I don't know if I'll throw in infinite combos or anything because I don't think I can assemble them consistently enough with a colorless deck. I feel like inevitability would be good enough to do the trick. A couple of swings with Koz with Silent Arbiter on the field is lethal so I mean, I think flavor win Eldrazi good stuff will be strong enough instead of trying to win with some degenerate combo.

cool looking deck. Here are a few suggestions. You can save a lot of space if you include just a single copy of one of the eldrazi titans (like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Kozilek, the Great Distortion ) that will shuffle your graveyard into your library for you. I would get rid of the Reliquary Tower s and Spell Book so that you can discard your graveyard shuffler to hand size.

Another thing you might consider is using Invisible Stalker as your creature of choice instead of Tormented Soul . The hexproof is very important for making sure that your 4 mana investment of Whispering Madness wont just go to waste after a simple Fatal Push . I also would cut the Aqueous Form since you've already got the "unblockable" text on your main creature.

rather than spells that only cantrip (draw you a card and nothing else) you should consider things that give you a little more options: Serum Visions , Opt , Sleight of Hand . These do the same thing, but allow you to choose your outcome a little bit (though Sleight of Hand wont trigger anything that looks for "draw a card".

Also, what happens if you don't draw the Whispering Madness ? you might consider more medium sized draw cards like Chart a Course that can get you to the good cards faster. Also you would want another win condition, like a Jace's Phantasm that can kill them with normal damage.

Lastly, a very good "draw a card" mill card you would want is Sphinx's Tutelage . This will ensure that they mill before you.

I do a lot of brewing. If you like brewing modern decks, I've got a podcast all about brewing decks. You can check it out on iTunes or at mtgcoldbrew.buzzsprout.com

Mistcutter Hydra , Craterhoof Behemoth if you have a decent amount of creatures, eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , etc. Omnath, Locus of Mana will hold the mana as you swing, Eldrazi Conscription for a massive pump, Primordial Hydra , Stonehoof Chieftain , Tooth and Nail to tutor with.
