Golem Deck FTW!

When I first started playing Magic, this card was the Holy Grail for my knight deck I made with other people's trash commons. Looking back on it, there's really not anything this guy is good for. Since Door of Destinies came out, it's not really that great in unusual tribal decks. Additionally, it's effect rarely draws you 4 cards. Especially not in an unusual tribal deck. However, the card is pretty decent with elves. You can cast him cheaply, and you can easily cast whatever elves you draw off of his ability. Elves also typically all elf cards, even the instants and sorceries have elf tribal attached to it so they're drawable. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm assuming that it will perform similarly in Goblins as well. If you're playing white, don't bother playing this. Just use Honor of the Pure for boosting, or Mentor of the Meek for card draw. Even Adaptive Automaton has replaced this card... (see all)

Only problem is, most Golem decks use Splicers, so he's not that good with that card draw if you're trying to use him that way.

Venser might like him though, and Venser likes Splicers.

This guy is an essential part of my Boldwyr Intimidator coward tribal deck.

Cowards attack!

The original Adaptive Automaton.

Good! But I've never gotten him out, sadly enough. Just once I want to see his ability occur.

Way overpriced, especially with the stupid 2/2 body. With powercreep I could see this costing 4 mana.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
