Each class that can summon golems gets access to 3 class cards and 2 "neutrals" that can do so. That means you can run up to 9 cards in your deck capable of summoning these. The cards aren't even constructed good until you are about to summon your 4th golem, and playing these cards on curve is going to be massively awkward, so I don't see how this could possibly be consistent enough to be worth it as a deck. Right now, people are only discussing Druid as a serious jade deck, and even then only because of the Idol.

As a standalone card Jade Idol might work but the problem is that Druid doesn't have the removal imo for such a thing.

Jade Idol is a 1-off for Miracle/Malygos Druid, and is in fact the only jade golem card the deck needs.
Once you've rapidly cycled through your deck (dropping 0-mana 8/8s along the way), Auctioneer + Idol will kill any control deck three times over.

That might be too slow but its pretty cool. Also jade idol makes fatigue druid a thing. A bad thing but a fun thing.

They have not managed to kill Zoo yet. I would be surprised if this is what did it.

Miracle Rogue might be really good. If the meta slows down it will be better positioned, and if it stays the way it is now it also won't be badly positioned. It's #7 on tempostorm right now and I'm finding it hard to believe that it's suddenly going to disappear b/c a set of mostly control cards was released.

My hand is itching to play N'Zoth Resurrect Priest (which was badly in need of a 3 drop like Kabal Talonpriest or the 3/7 orc) and Reno Mage (which was badly in need of Kazakus and Inkmaster).

But I think I will do as I always do when a new set comes up and just ladder up with Freeze Mage when everyone is durdling around.

When 3 of the classes are pidgeonholed into Reno?
I don't have much experience against or with freeze mage, but large burst healing does seem like it would be a problem.

The freeze mage decks I've seen usually plan on doing 30 damage in one turn anyway. Armor is the only real problem.

The way I've seen it done usually involves Thaurissan into Evolved Kobold and a bunch of burn spells. It's very much a deck that doesn't care about doing damage until the turn it kills you.

He's not a dragon where it counts though. Transformation magic is weird with tribal. Especially in MTG

oh god Jade Golem Druid with Arcane Giants seems to be actually pretty good, to say the least.

Last pack gave me the golden priest legendary. A free heal every turn has already saved me many times.
