I tried to resist making a reference to Doubling Season with this review, but I think I just failed. It shouldn't even have been that hard - there are so many cards that interact with +1/+1 counters, and so many cards that need as many artifacts in play as possible, that I really suspect there's going to be a run on this card - after all, it's a one-card metalcraft engine, and it interacts oddly well with New Phyrexia's poison themes. (Tezzeret is supposed to be hanging around Ghirapur, too. A hint of things to come?)

Animation Module (10/17)
 
This little card is interesting. It’s meant to synergize with the other two modules in Kaladesh, Decoction and Fabrication Module. As a stand-alone, though, this one is clearly the most powerful: token generation when you get a +1/+1 counter, and the ability to make even more on its own with just a single +1/+1 counter on your board. The activated ability is a weaker proliferate, which means it works with any counters (+1/+1, -1/-1, time, loyalty, energy, poison…among others).
 
I think this may have some upside in Standard, but it’s a bit on the slow side, so it’s going to have to hope that Standard is a bit slower for it to really have a chance to shine. It’s a cute combo piece, though, and I think it can find several homes.
