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

Gadianten on Primal Surge EDH

I do not know how your meta plays in regards to board wipes and creature removal, but I would recommend adding pretty much every cheap mana producer like Birds of Paradise, Boreal Druid, Elves of Deep Shadow, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves as reaching 10 mana for your combo is pretty taxing.

Some value creatures you might consider that play well with your commander are Hornet Queen, Precursor Golem, and Myr Battlesphere. Most of these creatures create tokens with the very relevant artifact type providing your commander flexibility. As an additional bonus these creatures create small armies by themselves that would dove tale into your Primal Surge combo well. Also, the ability to work well with Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Savant or any of your recursion really.

Other enchantments to consider would be Curse of Opulence, Curse of Bounty and to a lesser degree Curse of Disturbance. You can curse your self and make it so when attacked you can untap lands or create permanents, permanents that can serve as fuel for your commander making it less desirable to attack you especially in multiplayer.

Once again, thanks to all of you for the suggestions.

I decided to take Clear Shot for creature removal, as the extra toughness might come in handy and instant speed is always worth having. I really cant add illegal cards to the deck, as it might end up becoming a FNM deck and any cards outside of Simic are things I really cant use, but might end up in a Precursor Golem deck I might make.

Again, Thanks for all the suggestions. It's not a full playset, but I could replace Fleeting Memories with Ongoing Investigation, and 2x Tireless Tracker with a couple Whirler Rogue. They would really help with the secondary win condition of hitting big with Chasm Skulker or Lorescale Coatl and would mean I could remove Wingcrafter.

Precursor Golem is perfect in this deck, and is definitely going in with Confront the Unknown and maybe Epic Confrontation for the removal the deck has been missing. Also, I hadn't realised that Mechanized Production doesn't have to be attached to the winning artifact.

The only thing I can think of for Clock of Omens to be doing would be to untap Tamiyo's Journal to tutor more often. Also, any ideas on getting some better removal of artifacts/enchantments?

Thanks.

Ok...here's a few more ideas...if you go full 4 of Ongoing Investigation, then add in 4 Whirler Rogue. He comes with 2 extra bodies, potentially 3 Clue tokens each attack eventually guaranteed clue tokens by making things unblockable. Also, to consider Lodestone Myr, and Broodstar or Qumulox.

Then, I remembered Precursor Golem, who copies a spell for each golem, and could quickly get a lot of clue tokens with Confront the Unknown or Jace's Scrutiny. This can go bonkers when paired with Mechanized Production, because the way its worded, it doesn't even need to be attached to the artifact that causes you to win. So, put it on a Precursor Golem, upkeep makes a second Precursor Golem, then cast something like Survive the Night, copy it twice for each Golem, a total of 12 Clue tokens; win on upkeep because of Clues.

I know a whole bunch of Clue tokens with Ghirapur AEther Grid could take over a game. When thinking of other things clue tokens can do, I thought Throne of Geth is one of the more unique effects that sacrifices artifacts, and having lots of proliferation of poison/loyalty/energy counters would make it interesting. But, I realized this is likely too slow.

I also thought of Clock of Omens, but I don't know what artifact you'd want to be untapping repeatedly in a turn.

Anyway...I'm just brainstorming.

I always thought that Precursor Golem would be more amusing when paired with cards like Survive the Night, Confront the Unknown, Heat Shimmer, and Soul's Fire.

Perhaps to make it Golem Tribal with other golem creatures, like Keeper of the Lens, Solemn Simulacrum, Glassdust Hulk? From sacrificing Clue tokens, Salvage Titan should be free to cast.

I don't know...just brainstorming.

How are you planning to win ? I run a simular deck, but I ordered some bigger value creatures, to help get extra blink value. Yours however, seems to run a bit different.

Things like Cathars' Crusade and Requiem Angel wouldn't work in my deck for example.

I run cards like Kor Cartographer and Knight of the White Orchid to help me ramp more early than the untap X land cards. I run a bit more removal in the form of Luminate Primordial and Duplicant and I run some better beaters like Myr Battlesphere and Precursor Golem which can finish games quickly if i can blink it.

Other than that, I seem to have the same problem vs agro decks. I added some resilience vs more controlling decks (especially esper oloro in my meta), in an attempt to outvalue him, but time will tell ;)

Would like to hear your thoughts as well: Ephara, God of casual value

To answer that question, yes, you can sac Precursor Golem for Westvale Abbey while a removal spell is on the stack, targeting it. That is what makes Aristocrat decks so annoying to play.

Mindslaver is legal in modern as far as I know, but you're right about sol ring. I'll have to go back to my 4x Palladium Myr...

That Saheeli Rai is an awesome add to this deck, thanks for the suggestion! I still think that Tezzeret is a great card just for his +1 abbility. His -X is just there to facilitate the game. Keeping both is the best way to go.

I was going to make a B/G Agro Token deck with Orochi Hatchery and Summoning Station in it to add Westvale Abbey  Flip but I'll keep your suggestion in mind. As a protective answer Westvale is pretty good. I wonder if I can activate Westvale while an opponent's Lightning Bolt is in the stack attacking my Precursor Golem.
