Very interesting brew. 2 of my favorite standard cards are Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and Sylvan Advocate. I love Oviya because she seems so innocuous and people rarely want to waste removal(even if they do I am normally more than happy with that trade) on her and then she starts making 5/5s and 8/8s and the game is over quickly after that. Advocate is just so good and has kind of been forgotten the past several standard seasons since Collected Company rotated, but it is still a very powerful magic card. While it is colorless, I would consider adding Hostile Desert to take advantage of Advocates ability. I think you will have plenty of lands to exile since you probably discard some lands with Stern Constable and once you are at 6 lands attacking with a 5/6 is pretty insane. I know you mentioned Thraben Inspector above, but having the extra card draw seems more valuable than the extra point of power from the gargoyle. And while not a huge deal, triggering revolt for the Narnam Renegade would be a nice bonus. Just something to consider, but if your current list works then it works. Nice deck and Happy Brewing!

Hello fellow deck builders. I have been playing a Colossus deck this standard season with a few HOU additions. It has performed really well overall and is super fun to play. Lots of fun decisions throughout a game and a wins a good bit so that is always fun too.

That said, the bane of this deck has been W/U monument. While Abrade helps a lot, the deck is fast, can go wide and has so many ways to stop sweepers. In my build I opted for Radiant Flames over Sweltering Suns because the double red was scary in a grixis build, but Radiant Flames is TERRIBLE against Spell Queller. My question is would it be better to risk the double red of Sweltering Suns or just go big with Hour of Devastation since Spell Queller can't hit it? Thanks in advance and feel free to offer other suggestions. There is always room for improvement! Happy Brewing!

Here is the deck:Colossus of Devastation

I did some playtesting against my deck Colossus of Devastation and had some epic and fun matches. Games often were pretty evenly matched and much of my deck winning was dependent upon my deck being able to combo off and you not have a counter or me comboing off with counter backup post board. Once I dropped a few Colossi your best answer was abrade, but I would agree with one of the other commenters in saying a card such as By Force or Release the Gremlins would do well in this deck. Stinks that they aren't instant but sometimes you just need an answer. Really sold deck though. I look forward to seeing the progression. Happy Brewing!
