General Comments

Clockwork Automaton is a niche minion that greatly boosts the strength of your Hero Power in the same way as Prophet Velen can. The value of the card greatly varies depending on which Hero Power you have in play and most notably adds a huge boost to the Siphon Life Hero Power from Bloodreaver Gul'dan, making it deal 6 damage and heal for 12 with the Lifesteal effect.


Constructed Play

Clockwork Automaton is a solid choice for any Constructed deck that aims to make use of Bloodreaver Gul'dan.



In Arena, Clockwork Automaton is a poor card. Most classes gain no real benefit from the passive effect, with the exception of Mage and Hunter an even then the stronger Hero Powers do not justify playing a 5 Mana 4/4.
