Translation: Today we look at the Gearsmith character Toolbox Elf.

For a cost of 3 with a game starting threshold of 2, 700160x 31f is a favorite early game play. His 1/1/3 stats are poor to be sure, but his ability more than makes up for it.

As I’ve said many times, this is a game about options. 700160x 31f gives you two quick ones that are both very useful. The most commonly searched for gear cards with a cost of 5 or less (from the Gearsmith trade) are Luteoderm Armor or Prototype. With the former, your 1/1/3 becomes a formidable 3/3/3. With the latter, if your opponent chooses to kill him, he has to deal with the fact that you then get to tutor for any card in your deck.

Remember, since the gear card you search for is “put into play” vs. “played for free”, you can seek out and put into play any card regardless of its threshold as long s its numeric cost is 5 or less.

In limited, this is a highly desirable card. In constructed, it’ll see play in any deck using 2 Elitism.

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 4.5/5

700160x 31f (Toolbox Elf to the uninitiated) has to be one of the better constructed Gearsmith cards. In the Limited formats grabbing useful gear cards isn't a guarantee, so it isn't generally much good there. But in Constructed it lets you pull all kinds of mean tricks. First turn elf for either of the smaller Luteoderms can get you either a smallish character that your opponent doesn't want to destroy, or a good sized beater.

My personal favorite combo would be to get play this when you already have three Rudimentary Lathes in play. Then search your deck for a Luteoderm Goliath and stick it on this guy. A 12/12 character for 3? I like.

Limited: 2/5

Constructed: 4.5/5
