Maybe cuz it has better stats. It's a 5/4, as opposed to being a 3/2 or a 3/4.

With a Llanowar Elves, a Gaea's Touch and 3 Forests you could have it out on your second turn.

@ Snaxme

But it'd be much more flavorful if he'd have trample.

He's usually played on turn three with the help of an extra mana source.

But in a deck that hits rampant growth on turn 2 he can be played on turn three with a rancor or similar as well.

This guy needs trample. The other golems in the block have benefits:
Razor has vigilance,
Spire has flying,
Dross has fear,
and Oxidda has haste.
Why did this golem not get green's iconic trample?

@ Alzhander

while I do agree that trample would make Tangle one big bad dude, the reason he doesnt have it is because hes just bigger then the other gollems, hes pretty much a mid-game cudgle used to punish your opponents, at least for a while

I like using him in my deck because I have so many beasts and magics that are focused on gaining land quickly, I once hade 7 mana on turn 5 by using kodamas reach third turn and summoning silverglade elemantalmy fourth, then I just threw down Tangle golem for free,
Needless to say my roommate wasnt happy...

You can play this at turn 4, but it doesn't do much. It's just a 5/4 beat stick.

A 5/4 beat stick doesnt just beat them most of the time. it kills them.

He doesn't have trample because there are so many inexpensive methods of giving creatures trample in most green decks, and because he's bigger than the other golems.

on turn 3 there's no reason why he shouldn't be coming out for 2-3 mana, and 0-1 on turn 4. rancor and slam.
