Finally, a true Golem tribal deck! There are couple different ways to build around this commander and with whom he shares the command zone. It decided to go with splicers, the most are in Selesnya, and baubles. The most on theme partner is Rebbec, Becky. She is only there for white and I almost never cast her. I did not want to go the flicker route, and even though I do not have that many golems, this deck can reliably crank a 3-5 huge creatures. In order do this, we need artifacts that sack themselves for value, including tokens like treasure, clue, and food. Lots of them cantrip with other bonuses, but now they have "Put a +1/+1 on each golem you control" stapled on. It runs like a Johoira or Teshkar deck, but not as value intensive and more clunky. It relies on placing down a few small golems and a bunch of artifacts, then casting Ich-Tekik, and the turn after sacking all the artifacts to make your Golems HUGE. This deck is a lot of fun, and can really be explosive.

It is still a work in a progress and I would love comments.

How I build Decks:

Budget; around $100

No "Old" Cards; no brown borders

As on theme as possible; including ramp, draw, and removal

Notes:

This deck can afford to run lots of artifact removal since it works it Ich-Tekik

This deck is not combo-tastic. I am aware of adding Mystic Forge and mana reducers to go infinite with Ich-Tekik, Arcbound Reclaimer, and an artifact; however, I am not a fan of playing like that.

I took out mana reducers because they did not do anything after I dumped the rest of my artifacts on the battlefield in the early game.

I realized there are not a lot of good golems. Most have expensive mana costs, stats below what they should be, and a draw back.

Smothering Tide... I know people got some mixed feelings, and it is not budget, but if there was ever a deck for it, it is this one.

Key Cards:

Gilded Goose is great. It can keep creating baubles and Ich adds more bonuses to when it taps for mana.

Arcbound Reclaimer provides further value in the late game to keep pumping my golems, and it is a golem itself.

Declaration in Stone. I had never seen this card before. It its drawback is now an advantage, as when they sack it, it buffs my Golems. It is even more effective against tokens.

Thraben Inspector. Man I love this card. It provides so much value for a one mana common.
