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.

Hi DreadKhan!

Than you for the ideas! I really like the ones you mentioned, seems great Vorthos targets for the Lich, a so much valuable object like the Crown it's perfect target haha Following the "empire" cycle you mentioned: Hand of Vecna, Eye of Vecna and The Book of Vile Darkness seem great and flavour objectives.

I like all the indestructible artifacts: Stuffy Doll, Creepy Doll, Darksteel Axe, Darksteel Citadel, Darksteel Forge, Darksteel Ingot, Darksteel Juggernaut, Darksteel Pendant, Darksteel Plate, Colossus of Akros, Darksteel Colossus, Darksteel Myr, Darksteel Relic, Kaldra Compleat, Shield of Kaldra, Necron Monolith, That Which Was Taken. I do not note the worse indestructible cards

The arficat lands as you say it would be great, at least I can be use the mono-black artifact lands (maybe there's only one).

If it was dimir or golgari I could use more liches but I can't, it's a pitty

Thank you for the ideas!

I love it! I think that this is such a cool take on a defender deck. I wonder if you've considered Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, which can make defenders unblockable if made into attackers through Assault Formation.

Also, Axebane Guardian can help you ramp into Colossus of Akros very easily, and Wall of Runes makes a great choice for early-game play to keep your hand looking good.

Overall great deck!

I think you have a really interesting deck here and I absolutely love your commander pick! I'm really curious to see how you hone it as time goes on :) So far, do you think you are going to lean it further down either Samurai or Indestructible themes or keep it around where it is now?

I'm not much help in terms of Samurai but I do have some ideas if you are interested in adding more Indestructible-based pieces: Stuffy Doll , Creepy Doll , Colossus of Akros , Darksteel Sentinel , and Darksteel Colossus are pretty fun creatures and go really well with Pariah and Pariah's Shield . Fumigate is also a pretty sweet sweeper to drop mid-late game too, if you are looking for more of those :D

Flow of Ideas is great card draw in mono-blue. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is also a Whelming Wave (although it's a creature and not a good polymorph target), and so is Scourge of Fleets . Volition Reins instead of Lay Claim unless you're super attached to the cycling. Budget options instead of Blightsteel Colossus are Ixidron , Scourge of Fleets , Colossus of Akros , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut or Stormtide Leviathan .

One of my friends used to have a changeling deck. We all knew that changelings could attack, but it ended up being confusing that changelings were technically walls, and normally walls can't attack. I'm glad Defender was introduced to fix this problem, otherwise changelings would have been pretty much unusable.

Speaking of Defender, another one of my friends had a nasty defender deck based around Overgrown Battlement and Axebane Guardian . With multiple copies of these two cards he had insane mana to summon Colossus of Akros
