Artifact Creature — Golem
If Darksteel Colossus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Darksteel Colossus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

when you cast Absorb Identity on Darksteel Colossus, Orvars ability will trigger and resolve first, creatinh a Darksteel copy. You then resolve the Absorb Identity, and as part of that resolution may have Orvar become a copy of Darksteel Colossus until end of turn.

If i cast a Cerulean Wisps on Orvar, the All-Form and in response to Orvars triggered ability cast an Absorb Identity on a creature, say Darksteel Colossus, making my Orvar a copy of it, do i get a Darksteel Colossus or a Orvar, the All-Form?

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!

Great little combos here. Not sure if you’ve updated this behind the scenes or not, but it might be worth considering running a second Darksteel Colossus. Odds are low, but should you wind up with your only copy in your opening hand (or the first 4 draws afterward), you don’t have a way to get it back into circulation again. A second copy would be a buffer against this scenario. It’s an expensive card though, so budget alternatives that would produce the same results would be something like an ability to discard a card from your hand for whatever reason, thereby getting your finisher back into your library to be ready for Shape Anew.

It's not really a great card, but Shivan Gorge can deal some damage to each opponent, which can let you shave mana off of spells for a turn. There is also stuff like Spear Spewer that pings each player, that's a much better way to achieve that goal I suppose. There are also Kessig Flamebreather and Firebrand Archer that can turn any non-creature spell into damage, not sure you have enough stuff to justify them, but felt they were worth a mention. There is also good old Pyrohemia/Pestilence, which can ping each opponent (and it clears out x/1s if tokens are an issue in your area). Not sure if you will be able to get in for damage consistently, but Rite of the Raging Storm tokens usually suck to block, so you might get 5 damage per turn in some metas.
I feel like it's worth throwing in something like Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer if you want a sac outlet that can clear out lots of bodies and derive value from it, Feeder even works with Pitiless Plunderer (or another 'mana from dead creature' card, Pawn of Ulamog and Bog Initiate will work on a budget) and Gravecrawler to go infinite.
Final point, maybe a few Annihilator creatures that have high MV as their drawback, they tend to be colourless anyways, so can give a full discount and be free sometimes. Artisan of Kozilek and Pathrazer of Ulamog are good examples that aren't too pricey, but Titans are obviously more expensive/powerful, it's worth noting you'll always get cast triggers, even if you're casting them for nothing/very little. Some of these can also let you run cards that care about high MV, like Protection Racket and Timesifter, both are very strong in some metas. Heck, I think I'd just run Protection Racket either way now that I think about it, I'm not sure there is a drawback to that card in this deck, it's big drawback is that it's bad in combo decks because people won't give you combo pieces, but in a deck that isn't attached to any one card you can run it safely. There is also Meteor Golem, Platinum Emperion and even Platinum Angel to offer some value if stuff like Darksteel Colossus or Blightsteel Colossus are over the budget, and there are big old utility beaters like Tsabo Tavoc that are worth a look, you can shave 5 mana off still.
Rakdos is a pretty nifty Commander, hope you're having fun with him!

Yes. Unlike treasure tokens, Powerstones is a reusable source of mana. If they came onto the battlefield untapped, you could get cards like Darksteel Colossus out on the battlefield much sooner.

I love it!! It self-reinforces with spells getting easier and easier to play as you go along.
That being said, what are your payoffs for this deck? Your finishers? I see a couple of cards like Marionette Master that do have a strong effect with Treasures but I'm talking something incredibly large that can serve as an ending spell.
Also, Goldspan Dragon would be OP in this deck.
Hope this helps with your deck!
