Use it with Darksteel Juggernaut to get 17 power out of 2 cards. Throw in a Contested War Zone to boost it up to 24 power.

Just destroys infect decks (in limited). If you can get this our on turn 4 with a Palladium Myr or even a Grand Architect then you can block any Cystbearer and not care about the -1/-1 counters. Then you can just trade the tokens away and all the benefit of infect being like wither is negated.

The bad thing is that it can't attack until 2 turns later. Other than that it's pretty cool.

Extended combo with Time Sieve for infinite turns.

So I drafted this along with two Signal Pests. Ended up playing a 12 year old girl who played a second turn Suture Priest. I played the Assembly anyways. Turn after it returns to my hand, I get the tokens, then she plays War Report.

Ironically, that was the only game of the match that I won. God I'm bad at drafting...

At a recent sealed deck, I played one of these. I didn't crack many flyers and basically had to take what I could get - I didn't have high hopes for this card. Game 1/Match 1, I went up against a SOLID infect deck and lost miserably. 2nd game/Match 1, I pulled this out 4th thanks to some Myr and I have to say, this card single-handidly wont me the game! I could chump block and even allow Papa Thopter to take some infect hits knowing he would just bounce back. 3rd game/Match 1, I was again losing miserably. I had 8 poiston counters when this dropped on the board. It completely shut him down AGAIN!! I left that night without placing, but with much more respect for this card! 4.5/5

@Roshendo Incorrect. When a card refers to itself by name it means "this card" not others with the same name. Otherwise it would say "other than a CARD NAMED Thopter assembly" Refer to CR 201.4.

With more than one Thopter Assembly on the battlefield none will be returned.
