Okay, so I've been mulling this over in min head and I can't quite get how you could have 2 colossus out by turn 4 with any having trample/haste. I've figured how you could actually get 2 out, but they'd only be on the field and your hand would be totally empty. So did you embellish a little on how you won that that round 6 match or am I missing something?
Regardless of that I do like your deck idea, and might offer up the point that Dramatic reversal could do wonders for helping you ramp into your colossi. I'd also look into fight spells for some better spot removal if Humans are giving you trouble. I've found early removal of key creatures is the best preparation for a more effective board wipe against human-centric aggro decks. Incidentally, Incendiary Sabotage could be another good instant speed board wipe.

Whoops, it didn't have haste, I'll remove that part. As far as having out 2 on T4 that's entirely possible with T2 prisim, T3 Cloak, T4 Archive > Prism > Metalwork > Sanctum > Metalwork.
I had a cloak in play and he scooped to 2 10/10s

Lol. Okay, that makes much more sense. I had thought you had already gotten one of the colossi equipped. But yeah, if I saw that and didn't already have Declaration in Stone I'd totally scoop.
Also something to consider, likely as sideboard tech, is Titan's Presence. One mana more it may be than Aether Meltdown, but it is completely colorless mana to cast and nothing survives it save an eldrazi titan or technically Eternal Scourge.

is there anything I could do besides red in the board? Or is it that important?

It's important to have sweepers in the board. KReturn has great synergy with Colossus because it can flash back KReturn.
R just has some of the best ones.

Check out my version, it's slowly becoming mono blue. I simply do not have to KReturns. :/

You can't actually flash back Kozilek's Return off the colossus. The return only works on Eldrazi castings, not just any big creature.

Hmm it does say "eldrazi" glad that never came up. Well regardless I have Deep fiend.
October 24, 2016 6:31 p.m.
Well I finished a mono blue version. After alot of testing it seems to be fairly consistent. It is probably a tad slower due to lack of wipes.

The deck IS surprisingly consistent no matter how you slice it.
I HIGHLY recommend Haunted Cloak though, Haste and trample is just.... I found many opponents didn't even bother to try to chump to soak up damage, they would just eat 10 and that was almost always on the turn I played it. Having that also gives you the option to crew skyship for the 3 damage or to just attack for 10 and that flexibility was amazing during gameday.
Also, @everyone I'm gonna be adding TKS in the sideboard 'till I find a better answer to G/W/X midrange. Dispel was almost never relevant and I don't need 4 rejection. (Dispel is only relevant against Void Shatter and rejection actually deals with that.)
