very nice. slows down agro, instants/counterspells...
get him out early and combine with etherium sculptor to laugh in your opponent's faces while you play all of your spells for cheap!

best artifact since mirroblock, imo

Not a bad card at all. Even the artwork is nice. In the right deck, you can get around its cost while slowing your opponent's down...why, hello there Opposition and Frozen Æther !

Bought a playset as soon as I could. The great thing about it is its 5 power for a cost of 4. That's a fourth of your opponent's life, on top of a great hate ability. In an all-artifact deck, it's hard to find a more economical beater. And yes, it can be Bolted. Lots of things can be Bolted. Every card has vulnerabilities; I don't think the fact that Lightning Bolt kills this card completely invalidates it.

Juggernaut for aggro, Lodestone Golem for control. I bet you'll see each one in Standard on opposite sides of the coin. Juggernaut will get played for RDW and anything that wants to get around Wall of Omens, and Lodestone for U/W control and things that want to stroll at a more leisurely pace.

it's 5/3 for 4, that sounds alright but it can be bolted.
it has an awesome ability that completely shuts down cascade. alright I like it but it can still be bolted.
I run a bunch of sharuum, open the vaults.

bolt doesn't seem quite as dangerous when it costs 5 mana after an open the vaults

he can't be bolted if you steel oversee him, and it would be absurd if you didn't plan on doing so.

Screw juggernaut, this guy is awesome. Especially in RDW.

He looks good on paper, but as a 5/3 he is in bolt range and doesn't want to block any relevant creature in standard. I'd prefer him as a 3/5 (more control-ish).

This card and Thada Adel are two cards you want to hold to, guys. They may foreshadow a standard environment with artifact based decks when Scars of Mirrodin is released and will be worth more than they are now.
