Ever since I started playing Magic, I've wanted to build a successful Golem deck. Now, years later, I think I've at least found the skeleton of one.

The name comes from Isaac Asimov's novel The Naked Sun; it took place on a planet named Solaria, where robots vastly outnumbered humans, everyone considered themselves an expert on robots, and no one saw each other personally if they could help it, instead communicating via hologram. Similarly, this deck is focused on humans who are quickly outnumbered by their robot creations, they're all expert roboticists, and they are constantly flickering, much like insubstantial holograms.

So, this deck has 8 mainboard cards that flicker my creatures, 4 of which can be used repeatedly.

4 Ephemerate provide fast, cheap blinking. In this deck, a strictly better Cloudshift.

4 Soulherder provide my repeat blinking, as well as provide a big body to go on the attack.

Eerie Interlude is my sideboard flicker card, and this provides my needed mass flickering. If I'm using it offensively I can restrict it to my non token creatures, creating a potentially explosive boardstate for myself. Defensively, it will enable me to survive a boardwipe while maintaining a reasonable presence on the battlefield.

Blade Splicer , Master Splicer , and Wing Splicer form the core of my deck, and are my favored targets for blinking. They are my Golem lords, and make my army of Golems far scarier than their sheer numbers.

Flooded Strand , Watcher for Tomorrow , Nimbus Maze , and Wall of Omens help provide consistency and speed to this deck, and Mana Tithe , Reflector Mage , and Spell Pierce provide a little control.

Champion of the Parish fits great in this deck, as it has 17 humans excluding him, and I'll be blinking them regularly.

And Arcane Adaptation turns every creature into a Golem that gets boosted by my Splicers, and into a Human that can boost my Champions.

Anyway, that's the idea behind this deck. I'm not the most experienced player, and I'm very open to other's advice, so whatever you have to give is most appreciated. Thank you.
