It becomes very clear that Magic is evolving and the power level baseline of its cards is now at a much higher level, when cards like this get printed, and you remember your old days of playing with “Altar’s Reap” in Innistrad or Battle for Zendikar, as this new iteration is without a question much stronger in costing 1 instead of 1B!

While all this is true, it’s the combination of all its abilities together in one spell, plus the fact that it does not ask for mana of any color AND searches for any basic land AND gives you a body to attack and block with that draws a card when it dies, that makes this golem an overall fantastic value card with the right amount of power and flexibility to be a good role-player.

I emphasize on the fact that you must reuse your mana for it to work as a free spell because, if you are not doing so, it has cost you four mana instead of zero. Let’s get right into it: I think this little lifelinker has the potential to be the most impactful one drop printed in a long time, as getting a 5/5 flier out of it is not a particularly difficult task in Standard right now.

Assuming your deck can consistently play this as a two mana creature, this bring some serious power to the table as a 3/3 flyer with scry 2 that will probably get to attack for much more, since if you have enough instant and sorceries to cast it early-on every game, you should have more than enough to make it grow when it enters the red zone. But its many different uses may very well gain it a slot in some non-aggro decks, as a flexible tool that can be used differently depending on the situation and even remove a big creature of planeswalker from your opponent, assuming that your deck can then handle a 4/4 flyer on the other side of the table. From Core Set 2021. What may seem like a decent creature, that does many things well but at a high cost and does not excel at any of them, has been part of plenty of competitive tier 1 decks in the past, like the famous red and green ramp deck that players like Paulo Vitor Dame Da Rosa and Brian Kibler played in the top 8 of “Pro Tour Dark Ascension”, and may repeat its past success in the coming weeks! Search for the perfect addition to your deck. In today’s Standard, we can find many removal spells that are way easier to cast and can even destroy more creatures than this, so it might be difficult for it to be included for the time being, especially considering the fact that not many decks can cast it consistently on turn 2 (and you want your deck to be able to cast your two mana removal as early as possible). The M21 spoiler season is still in progress, and it looks like this Core Set will impact Standard in a huge way. The problem one could have when approaching the card is the feeling that we are paying much more for effects that we could get much faster and cheaper in the game: “Growth Spiral” costs 2 to get an extra land drop and draw a card, and a four mana 2/2 is nothing to be excited about. Keep in mind though that for this elemental to work properly, the deckbuilding constraints are real and you might not be able to execute the aggressive game plan that you envision in the first place; you need instant and sorceries that you can play alongside this creature at any time, that let you keep progressing your game plan (probably card draw spells like “Opt”).
