I can't adequately state how much I love this card.

Mtg has always been about how your deck works as a whole. I love how this card has so much potential, depending on what deck you throw him in and can become so devastating in so many different ways. I hope this is a precursor to more cards with a wide number of uses depending on how you build a deck with them.

I can think of different ways to use him for every color and most color combos, and can't wait to using this guy in a number of different ways.

Argh, I've had such mixed luck with this card. Seems like half the games I run my opponent over with nine power, and half the games something... unpleasant happens.

Once I had it Slice In Twain'd; lost that game pretty badly. Another time it fell to Flesh Allergy; losing 6 life in addition to my golems wasn't particularly fun. My worst experience was in a cube draft, where my opponent kicked Into the Roil on it. I cast it again, and he stole all my golems with Ray of Command and beat me to death.

This guy is pretty much the definition of "high risk, high reward". Plenty of good combos for you--watch for the ones that go badly.

Lol Tel-Jilad Defiance has a use that isn't killing Living Weapon germ tokens.

@LPFan55 When using Flesh Allergy, the opponent wouldn't lose 12 life. The opponent would lose life equal all creatures put into the graveyard this turn (prior to Flesh Allergy resolving from the stack). In other words if the opponent lost 3 life because of flesh allergy, the opponent would not lose any more life from that same instance of flesh allergy even if more creatures went to the graveyard after the original Flesh allergy resolved.

To calculate: There are 2 golems and one Precursor Golem on opponents battlefield. You have 1 creature. You cast Flesh Allergy, sacrifice your creature and target one of the golems. This is the original spell and is put on the bottom of the stack. Two more copies of the spell are then put on the stack in the order of your choice, each targeting a different golem. So the last target you pick would resolve first. At this point in the stack only 2 creatures have gone to the graveyard (the ... (see all)

Has anyone mentioned cantrips yet? This strikes me as a good target for them. You can turn a Twisted Image into an Ancestral Recall.

Any cantrip that targets it gives you three cards.

Tainted Strike allows it to end the game in one fell swoop.

This creature is a huge risk, but it could be very well broken with the right deck.

ALSO: Searing blaze doesn't triple itself, since doesn't just target one golem.

Ugh....you guys.....he's not card disadvantage if they shoot him down. It's a 1-for-1. HE makes the tokens, so if they Doom Blade him, you lose 1 card and they lose 1 card. Not a 3-for-1. He's a very solid card which can end games quickly and is pretty potent when paired with stuff like Vines of Vastwood, Withstand Death, or even Asceticism.

This does not die to Searing Blaze, since Searing Blaze targets the player first and then the creature. It fails in this way for the same reason that if you kill the creature Searing Blaze is targeting then it still deals damage to the player.

The text on the Golem clearly states "targets only" , therefore searing blaze would not be copied as it is not only targeting a single creature, but a creature and player.
