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
(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
