Precursor Golem

Artifact Creature — Golem

When Precursor Golem enters the battlefield, put two 3/3 colorless Golem artifact creature tokens onto the battlefield.

Whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell that targets only a single Golem, that player copies that spell for each other Golem that spell could target. Each copy targets a different one of those Golems.

Precursor Golem Discussion

I would cut Glorybringer, Hellrider, Precursor Golem, Retrofitter Foundry, Heat Shimmer and Treasure Map  Flip. To start with.

I might also think about adding Mogg Infestation and Snake Basket

Breath of Fury would be infinite combat rounds

@ecmmyers Thanks for the suggestions :). I started playing commander last year (due to the vampire deck <3 Edgar Markov) and I've heard of the tempt cycle, but wasn't familiar with Tempt with Reflections. I like Cackling Counterpart and Rite of Replication, which has been on and off my "to acquire" radar for awhile. However I'm not a fan of Precursor Golem. The 3/3 tokens do seem nice but can't be compared to the high-rolls I'm trying to achieve with the deck such as copied Doom Engine. If targeted with the mentioned above clone spells he's much better but as of now I think the card has much better home in something like a Zada, Hedron Grinder deck.

Some cheaper ways of getting (better) tokens: Cackling Counterpart (with Flashback), Dance of Many (annoying upkeep cost, though), Rite of Replication (always flashy), Tempt with Reflections, Precursor Golem could get out of hand.

Just a few fun suggestions for the clone theme!

Would Precursor Golem work?

Here's how I think about this commander: You want two types of creature token. A) ones that are cheap/free to flood the board and B) ones that are copies of cool creatures with abilities you can exploit.

Your A Column is pretty solid. The only one I'd add is Genesis Chamber and/or The Locust God... Things that make Treasure or Clue tokens are pretty good because they'll add value OR attack. Additionally, Since lots of your small creatures are on ETB trigers Panharmonicon could be good.

Your Column B is so-so. You've got Feldon of the Third Path and Helm of the Host, but those are pretty slow and obvious. Mimic Vat, Heat Shimmer, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rite of Replication, Supplant Form, Cackling Counterpart, Zndrsplt's Judgment and Fated Infatuation all could get you the token you need to make a deadly strike out of nowhere. An interesting combo here could be Precursor Golem so targeted instants make TONS of copies if you turn your army into golems. Creatures with Embalm and Eternalize Mechanics could fall into this category, too.

There's a Column C, too, I guess, which is creatures that get Attack triggers. Inferno Titan and Frost Titan come to mind, but just things to go ham when all your weenies turn into that thing.

Great Brew, man! I wish you luck and I look forward to how this evolves!

You might get blown out with Precursor Golem as any targeted removal would wipe all your token. Otherwise, love the deck.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Individual replies below.

Crivaro: Cloudpost would be interesting if I can find a way to copy it.

SmashPortal: Helm of the Host would be good if I had more legendary creatures to copy, but for now the mana investment is too heavy since it's 9 mana for 1 token.

MST_Negates: Reef Worm is 4 CMC so usually not a turn 2 play, and is definitely one of the best options for resilience.

BolasFucks: Phyrexian Processor certainly can make a big token, but the life cost is risky and the tokens don't trample. Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth can frequently deal more than 40 damage for each token without having to pay life. Mechanized Production is a good alternate wincon and also a way to copy an artifact, but currently most of the things in this deck worth copying are nonartifact, and it needs to last through all my opponents' turns before I can win with eight artifacts of the same name.

Ben773: The myriad cards are decent but not the most powerful things to be doing. Crush of Tentacles removes all the tokens we have already made. Precursor Golem tokens are vulnerable to spot removal on the original. Gold-Forge Garrison 4/4 is not worth it. Copying the 5/1 tokens from Rite of the Raging Storm means they all get sacrificed at end of turn. Metallurgic Summonings is already in the deck. Infinite Reflection costs a lot of mana and only affects nontoken creatures. Mirror Mockery tokens can't be copied since they only appear after Brudiclad's trigger is over. Flameshadow Conjuring is a card I quite like from my other decks and might try out in this. Inferno Titan dealing 3 additional damage per token is quite little. I'm trying to include a few more card advantage options. I do have Pact of Negation and Spell Swindle as counters. I might also include Force of Will and Swan Song as low mana cost options.
