Metal wonder is such a fun card, it slowly but surely kills your opponents idols. I'm trying to make a deck based around this card but can't find any good combos besides summon. I was thinking you could have hellspitter (maybe automata forge) and metal wonder as your only buildings while using summon. This would allow you to quickly gain metal wonders and protection from your hellspitters. Maybe even adding in regeniture to buff your building might work (8 health hellspiter :o ). Meanwhile you would have your solemn giants, gravelocks and little order soldiers wreaking havoc. Anyone know of good combos or other ideas with this card?

Solemn giant to do 8 damge. Mw to finish. Mw behind waking wall is fearsome, but tricky to get out. Mw plus decay gives you lots of direct idol damage.

I am sure there are others.

Yeah, Metal Wonder/Automata Forge/Solemn Giant combo decks are pretty popular, especially down at around 1600. They can be used to pretty good effect, but good luck getting them started, it's not very fun.

I really think D+E with shackles, MW and Loyal Darklings would be nasty.

Add in Totem of Suffering and a bunch of <5 cost E and D creatures. With so many options for kill cards, I don't even think you'd hate not having Thunder Surge and VD available.

I already have a bit of trouble with Energy and Metal Wonder only makes it worse haha. I cycle a lot and my current main deck doesn't have the fastest early game.

In the meta right now, i don't see a lot of draw/cycle decks so im not sure if metal wonder should be a must have.

It eats G/O Draw for breakfast where energy would normally fall flat, so that's an upside.

MW+Solemn giant is great. A really good synergy between those two cards.. just pop as many idols as you can to 2 health.. then go metal wonder for an instant Russian roulette. He plays a spell/enchant : he dies. He doesnt : He dies.

Guess who's fucked ? :p

The only real one card counters to it are vd and tick.

It can be lessened as a threat by putting shackles on it (you lose two idol health, but gain idol damage after two rounds. The earlier the better for this. Putting Mire Curse on it makes it harder to defend.

Lobbers and board affecting structures can slowly chip away at it, too.

Finally, you can do the other indirect ways to counter it, such as flipping it in the way of a strong attack or puppet soldiering it.

Finally, having a high creature low spell deck makes it less effective against you.

a deck that "revolves" around metal wonders can't be. it's a situational card, and wont be effective by itself.. (even tho i wonder how it reacts with hex marks)

A good deck that use it.. any strong energy deck with solemn giants in it.. i wouldnt put more than 2, tho.

Its a great card in certain matchups(Order in particular) so knowing went to keep it or sac it is the key. Like DeathSora said it is very situational but it can also be used as a distraction late game when idols are scarce.

Still one of my favourite energy cards :D. I like to run 3 in my deck.

Haha I faced Curry today. Still plays his GO Draw. I don't understand why people still play that deck. Its sooo bad against the current Meta. That his rating was 200 points below me wasn't really a suprise. No way GO Draw can win most of its matches in Ranked.

Metal wonder is really really good on paper but in actual gameplay its kinda... meh
It can be played around. Its also generally targeted pretty heavily and having only 4 hp makes it vulnerable, so it can be tough to get max value from it when playing against a savvy opponent.

From my experience the amount of cards and resources i need to use to keep metal wonder up long enuff to justify using it just isnt worth it.

Also keep in mind that if u are making a deck centered around both MW and AF that also features hellspitters your board will get cluttered very quickly, restricting your movement and limiting what you are able to accomplish.

All that being said i have had a couple games vs mono decay where MW did come through in a big way, and like whats posted above it does eat GO decks:D
