the flavor text makes me all mirthy inside

Passable, but situational. I've actually won two games in no small part thanks to this card. Or rather, thanks to turn 1 The Iron Guardian Stirs, turn two The Iron Guardian Stirs, turn three I Know All, I See All. (Yes, that happened twice. Two games apart.) Still, Look Skyward and Despair is quite a bit better in most situations because of the evasion and the 4-turn clock as opposed to 5 turns.

Since this is from the Esper-themed Archenemy deck, I appreciate how very blue the flavor text sounds. For all white's self-righteousness and black's malevolence, you just can't beat good old mocking, sneering, blue hubris.

The flavor text on this one is tastefully humorous.
Reading it makes me feel like a legitimate evil mastermind.

Not bad. But to my knowledge, WotC hasn't made a 4/6 Golem token card yet. WotC, why didn't you either include a 4/6 Golem creature token card in the "Assemble the Doomsday Machine" deck, or have this scheme make a token that already exists?

Very bland, much worse than Look Skyward and Despair or Ignite the Cloneforge. It's a strong blocker for gumming up the ground and it can do good things if you get it early on in the game, but past turn 4 or so it's just underwhelming. Solidly meh.

Should have been a 6/9 with defender or something. It is, after all, an Iron Guardian.

I enjoy this one for the chump blocker, plus if you get it turn one its invaluable.

Eldrazi archenemy with all is dust? I like it.

Building inventions in my space lab in space
Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends
Perfecting my warrior robot race
Building them one laser gun at a time"

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
