This + Steel Overseer + Triskelion + Voltaic Construct + Training Grounds = infinite damage combo.

Awkward as heck, but there you go.

DiTerlizzi rocks my socks, unfortunately the art is the best part of this card. The nod to Triskelion is cool, but 1 damage is so much better than 1 colourless mana that it doesn't seem worth sticking to the 6-mana 4/4 pattern.

Cool idea, bad execution. Pairing the ability with an artifact creature I can understand but not a this mana cost. The cost should have been lowered and the stats adjusted accordingly.

LOOK AT MY HORSE, MY HORSE IS actually quite underwhelming and leaves a lot to be desired for.

I mean, the CMC is really a bit prohibitive for a mana source, and it doesn't even provide colored mana. Which is odd, since it clearly can do so in the picture. I imagine I would be quite angry if I ever came across this in a booster instead of another better rare.

I agree with the general consensus that mana of any color would've been far better. But there's some potential (janky) usefulness; since there's no activation restriction, it can be popped all at once for a four-mana burst.

If you power him out early - say, T3 Palladium Myr, T4 this guy - You can then have a one-time burst of 11 mana on turn 5. (Assuming you've dropped a land each turn.)

That's far from exceptional, but it's certainly an interesting way to get a lot of mana in a sudden. T5 Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Darksteel Colossus isn't too bad either, especially considering you get style points for doing it so strangely.

I'm rather disappointed about this card only providing colorless mana.
Would have been much more interesting if this card provided mana of any color, and would also make more sense on top of that when taking a look at the artwork. These mana cans are pretty much colored, aren't they?
Although it's less versatile than the horse, i personally prefer Composite Golem.

An armored horse? Cool.
The card itself is not really good - but it may quite useful for upcoming colorless Eldrazi creatures. But still, it seems that this set will have better mana acceletation than Workhouse...
