There are probably two ways to do golem tribal, the first, which is in RB would be reanimator effects Trash for Treasure and Endless Obedience probably being your best options, with Platinum Emperion and Mycosynth Golem as the creatures you want to cheat into play. The second option is the splicers, primarily these appear in GW; Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Vital Splicer, Sensor Splicer and Maul Splicer (for completeness there is a blue splicer Wing Splicer). in addition to these, white also gives you access to Tempered Steel.

If you want a straight up Golem agro deck then that is a little harder. You almost certainly want Lodestone Golem and Golden Guardian  Flip, but early plays are difficult in tribe Chronomaton and Keeper of the Lens are the only 1 mana golems and Soultether Golem the only 2 mana option.

You certainly have set yourself a challenge, the tron lands and cavern will eat land hate and your chosen tribe doesn't have much support, particularly if you aren't playing white or blue. I recently helped another player build an artifact deck Sai and tezzy demo, the aim of which is basically to spam thopter tokens. One card that stands out as not really fitting is Hollow One, since Smuggler's Copter isn't enough support for it. I wish you luck with your brew and hope I've been of some help...

I really like Isareth the Awakener

and the obvious outlets for The Demon of Catastrophes

but my question is if Lazav, the Multifarious copies a Lich for 3 in the graveyard-- does the Lich still require the Phylactery counter?

How do you feel about Golden Guardian  Flip here? he can give us the same advantage we get on Treasure map but we can actually hold 2 mana open and basically flip in response.

I agree that you should definitely be considering Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Spawning Pit, and Noosegraf Mob as additional token producers. You could also consider Mimic Vat, Golden Guardian  Flip, and Phyrexian Processor.

The fact that you don't have Skullclamp in here is a bit surprising. It is generally the best card in any token deck (and I am not speaking in hyperbole here).

I don't think it's worth it to splash black just to get Golden Guardian  Flip to flip. As mentioned, it was mainly brought in as a mana sink, but was replaced with Banefire.

Have you thought about using Golden Guardian  Flip or Piston-Fist Cyclops?

To take advantage of Golden Guardian  Flip use treasure tokens or splash black to cast

Dire Fleet Poisoner Status / Statue Tetzimoc, Primal Death
