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.

Everybody knows the meter is broken.

Regarding your list: Precursor Golem maybe?

Only Precursor Golem and the other creature will become copies of the chosen creature. You won't get any copies and the 3/3 golem tokens will be unaffected.

The second ability on Precursor Golem requires the spell to target a single golem and only that golem. In your example, since Polymorphous Rush has two targets, Precursor Golem 's second ability will not copy it.

From the Gatherer for Precursor Golem :

1/1/2011: The second ability triggers whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell that targets only one Golem and no other object or player. That Golem can be Precursor Golem itself, one of the Golem tokens it created, or any other Golem. It doesn’t matter who controls the Golem.

Let's say I cast Polymorphous Rush targeting Precursor Golem and another creature, but not the two golem tokens. Do I get to turn 6 creatures into a different creature, or only 4?

Also what do you think of Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kykar, Wind's Fury ? they don't have the colors for nephelim but they could go insane. also there's mini zada's like Precursor Golem and Beamsplitter Mage

Token generation without Precursor Golem ? This commander was made to enable him.

As far as removal... you have Oblation and Chaos Warp , which are good, but you may also want to consider Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares . Have I used Path to Exile copied across six golems, netting myself six basics, in a response to a board wipe? Yes, yes I have.

If you want to check out my list, it's below. There are still a few cards I need to swap out, like Faith's Shield ; it has been a dead card every time.
