I literally burst out laughing when I saw this card. Because a 10/10 indestructible defender for 8 wasn't big enough. I guess now decks that want to chain Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx have something to do with all that mana, even if they're not running green fatties or powering a 20-damage Fireball.

Very reminiscent of Guardian of the Temple, but this can win in one swing and doesn't rely on your opponent attacking.

In a neat twist, the Heroes vs. Monsters printing of Anax and Cymede has a comment by DarthParallax saying 'This is Akros!' It having been placed there to randomly link up with a page after the Gatherer was updated. He posted it before this card was spoiled which makes for a neat coincidence considering how awesome and huge this creature is in reference to the city. haha

HEEEEEEEERE'S TIMMY!

Woo, suck it Emrakul! Biggest... nontoken set power... thing? I mean, it uses +1/+1 counters, but only a specific amount... this bigness is hard to categorize.

This might actually be playable with Rakdos, Lord of Riots
Getting it Monstrous is another question :D

First we get an indestructible 11/11 for 11. I thought that was cool. But they just HAD to update into a creature that gives you 11 poison counters in one swing, for one mana more.

Then we get a 15/15 for 15. I thought that was as close to a 20/20 for 20 we were ever going to get. But Colossus of Akros is actually closer. This thing is a 20/20 for 18. And that mana can be spread over two turns.

Oh, this is not good... I can feel the chill of death approaching in the wind... She will rise from Her Dark Depths to curse the one who challenges Her wicked, absolute power! MARIT LAGE does not tolerate the weak to live!!
-Its scorched remains, after a foolish attempt to steal Her power from on high with its laughable Fleetfeather Sandals, will always remind me of that beach scene from Planet of the Apes: "You maniacs!... You blew it up! Argh, d*mn you... g*d d*mn you all to Hell!"
