I would cut Elvish Mystic and add Sol Ring

For Removal maybe Desert Twister, Scour from Existence, and on theme Whiptongue Hydra

Thanks CommanderNeyo I actually have a copy of Nevinyrral's Disk in another deck, it's a good option. Scour from Existence is one I may pick up.

Beast Within is a solid go-to for green removal. Desert Twister and Scour from Existence have high mana costs, but hit everything for no downside. Oblivion Strike sneaks in by being colorless.

It's tough in colorless, but you could use a little more interaction. Spatial Contortion can deal with small creatures, and Scour from Existence/Introduction to Annihilation are expensive, but all purpose removal spells. Unstable Obelisk is early ramp that can be cashed in for removal later. I am not saying add all of these, but one or two more forms of interaction might be nice.

Containment Construct could be a great add here since you can cast stuff off of Kozilek's discard ability (I believe timing restrictions still apply though). Bag of Holding is another option that lets you store those cards for later.

If you want to get a little mean, I've seen Winter Orb used quite well in a colorless Eldrazi deck at my LGS. The idea is that orb slows down opposing decks long enough to let you build up your mana base to start casting Eldrazi. Your deck won't be impacted as much since you run a ton of artifact/creature ramp. Throw in Inspiring Statuary (another card that could be good in your deck on its own) and you can play Winter Orb with zero downside.

+1 from me!

"The only colorless removal i've tried to defend". I've already brought up scour. There are only two colorless removal spells. Introduction to Annihilation and Scour from Existence.

I'd defend running Scour from Existence too. You're paying 2 extra for instant speed and giving nothing in return.

There is nothing else to defend. That's why i haven't defended anything else. So that has no bearing on its feasibility.

It also isn't "to board against one commander." They're cards you can use in literally every game because they can exile any target permanent. Run graveyard hate? why do that when i can run permanent hate that gets the job done and offers more versatility? What actually sounds like the more "unfeasible" strategy, there? Running graveyard hate that is kind of just a dead draw vs a non-graveyard deck, or running a spell that does what the yard hate would do which i can also use to answer any threat on the board? It could always be blue artifacts. They don't care so much about getting stuff out of the graveyard. This answers their Darksteel Forge. This answers an enemy Zurgo Helmsmasher on your turn. This could answer Iona. This could answer emrakul if they were legal in the format. It's even a way to deal with a Bound in Gold or Darksteel Mutation. It's good vs every indestructible commander and every protection from colored commander. It even deals with stax. What's important too is that it has a permanent effect and it is not a permanent. Grafdigger's Cage can be blown up or countered, just like Relic of Progenitus and Rest in Peace. However, the colorless spells can only be countered. There's nothing to blow up. Scour can even deal with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to stop a Sheoldred, the Whispering One, or a Rogue's Passage. Sure ghost quartering them would be much better, but if you drew one and not the other, and that's what's killing you...

You framing this as something people run just to deal with iona is wrong. That would be like saying people only run RIP for the Helm of Obedience combo. That's not true at all.
