Precursor Golem

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.

IcyLightning on Clues and Conquest

Those all have a lot of potential, but I don't think they would synergize well with this deck. The deck's focus on blink is primarily for ETB triggers from humans. Whirler Rogue may actually be good here so she's going in the maybe pile for now, but I'm not entirely sure what to replace with her. Lodestone Myr and Precursor Golem and blink make for a really cool combo, you're right, but again I'm not sure what I'd remove as neither of them are human and the artifact build around would really be a different deck entirely. Precursor Golem's ability is only triggered by 4 spells in the deck, and Eerie Interlude's ability to blink every creature is more valuable then casting it to only trigger golems, as it the ability is really meant to be a quasi finisher for a board of humans. Precursor Golem does synergize with spells like Second Harvest, but pretty much nothing else in the deck.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention though, I've never seen Precursor Golem before so I always enjoy being introduced to new cards.

I always thought clue tokens would go well with Whirler Rogue or Lodestone Myr. And with all that blinking, casting a Confront the Unknown targeting a Precursor Golem could result in an insane amount of power on the battlefield. Even without any extra golems from blinking, one becomes a 4/4, one a 5/5, and one a 6/6, and you get three clue tokens.

Have you considered Zada, Hedron Grinder or Precursor Golem as card advantage targets?

I have toyed around with a similar idea for a deck using Precursor Golem as the centerpiece: when targeted with Confront the Unknown , you'll create three clues, and one golem will get +1/+1, another will get +2/+2 and the last will get +3/+3. This scales up quite well when with more golem creatures.

You can use Rampage of the Clans as a backup to The Antiquities War . Spell Swindle can help making tons of artifacts.

Demarge on Regenerate vs. protection vs. ....

honestly lures are best used when the game is going to end at that point (usually when Overrun is cast) and so the Taunting Elf doesn't need to really live, just keep blockers busy.

Not to say that I haven't enjoyed miracle Revenge of the Hunted onto an Engulfing Slagwurm or Precursor Golem before (still events that end the game), but yeah protection isn't really my thought on something to do with a lure creature.

Eurgiga on Moon art cards for Princess ...

A few I haven't seen yet:

Couple tips when looking for moons: Both actual moons and moon symbols count, so keep an eye out for moons on things like books, texts, and manufactured things in the art. There is no limit on how small they can be, though it's obvious it has to be large enough to make out. Some cards have very small, very sneaky moons hidden in them this way.
