Battered Golem

Artifact Creature — Golem

Battered Golem doesn't untap during your untap step.

Whenever an artifact enters the battlefield, you may untap Battered Golem.

That is a good question about Battered Golem .

The way I see it is: Disciple of the Vault , Reckless Fireweaver and Nettle Drone are your baseline. From there you have at least two directions you can go and would need to choose. Either you go with Battered Golem , Voltaic Servant and Viridian Longbow for tap/untap strategy or you manipulate sacrifice/recursion with cards like Costly Plunder , Myr Servitor and Workshop Assistant . One build could better utilize Nettle Drone (┬┐with cards like Wrangle to untap?) while the other takes more advantage of Disciple of the Vault . If I built the deck, I would explore the recursion route but I won't say for sure that would be better than Battered Golem ; you might have to playtest to know, but I figure you'd have to choose and focus one strategy.

Traumitz, firstly let me say sorry for missing your comment. Good idea. =)

Bokamoso: I'm glad you like the deck. "Ping" is actually one of my favorite archetypes/strategies. I have a couple non-artifact ones that I'm working on also. But back to the point: you have a bunch of great suggestions! Unfortunately I don't think I have many of those cards in paper, but I'll scrounge up what I can. Meanwhile I can update this to reflect a "Perfect Cell" version. =P

I honestly should have realized things like Costly Plunder instead of Sign in Blood myself, but oh well, lol. =D

Also, while I have your attention, what are you thoughts on Battered Golem mainboard? To combo with Viridian Longbow .

mgc974 on Vela the night clad combo ...

3 months ago

Hello everyone,

Here is my Vela, the night-clad combo artefact deck. I built thins deck around 4 differents and some specific synergie. I want to stay budget.

The goal of the deck is simple: draw, tutor, loot, find the pieces of combo, play the combo. At instant speed if it's possible with Shimmer Myr. On of the obstacle for the deck is that we need Vela on the battlefield first, than we can combo.

This is my first real combo deck ans it's for playing in a casual metagame. So I choose to play two combo that requires 4 cards (Vela included), one that requires 3 cards and one that requires only 2 cards.

Maybe the deck is a little weaker. But i want to keep a flexibility and not always try to win turn 5/6. My goal is that my deck remains a challenge for me when i'm playing with it. I can choose the level of difficulty.

So here are the combos:

Krark-Clan Ironworks + Mirrorworks+ Myr Retriever + Vela the Night-Clad or Marionette Master

Battered Golem + Banishing Knack + Ornithopter + Vela the Night-Clad or Marionette Master

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala + Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire

Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve

I use some card draw and tutor to find my combo pieces.

And here some synergies:

Scrap Trawler and Darksteel Plate + card:Nevinyrrall's disk or Oblivion Stone

Rite of Replication + Vela the Night-Clad. With Rite of replication kicked, it deals 30 damages to opponents when you sacrifice the five copies of Vela.

I'm for your advices to perfect my deck. I take all advices.

Just no cards over 5/7 dollars

I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.

Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.

I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

Battered Golem comboes infinitely with the Retraction Helix and the Banishing Knack. I'd add 4 of them immediately

Updated version of my comment about the possible combos

Also here are the possible combos

1)infinite mill Cathartic Adept / Screeching Sliver + Mirran Spy +0 mana artifact+ Zephyr Scribe / Battered Golem / Nettle Drone + Banishing Knack / Retraction Helix

2)infinite damage same thing but replace the Cathartic Adept / Screeching Sliver with Nettle Drone

3)in case of no Mirran Spy just replace the Nettle Drone /Cathartic Adept / Screeching Sliver with Reckless Fireweaver and start bouncing the artifact as normal for infinite damage. Same can achieved with Grapeshot but after the infinite bouncing of the artifact

Traxos, Scourge of Kroog is the second playset of Battered Golem to enable a more consistent combo.

(Alternatively it can be used to simply beat face, and win via 3 consecutive attack steps - while stonewalling the enemy vigilance style)
