Faceless shambler approves of this card. This message is brought to you by the Society of Eerie Statues.
The possibility of Flamewreathed Faceless makes me nerveous when played against me.
Finally, sees some play thx to Reno Jackson :)
Piloted Sky Golem>Piloted Shredder> Haunted Creeper > Spectral Spider
Damn, that's sticky! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I wonder how a Captain's Parrot can control a Piloted Shredder to ride a Piloted Sky Golem?
Just got it today, and on the first try it dropped enhancomechano...
So RNG will be RNG:
Cairne is more consistent, as well as harder to remove, but Sky Golem is more fun.

Yeah seriously, just the fact that you can get a Shredder alone makes this legit.
nice card animation
Hungry dragon? Yikes.
Most value card in the game! I love this card
Like Cairne, These deathrattle minions are very good against Warrior and Paladin. If you play combo Druid, this card should take the place of Cairne now, for it has higher attack and poses a greater threat.
But I'm not sure whether that applies to control decks as well. As has been said, control decks value toughness and stability.
According to the officials it can summon any collectible 4 drop. Basically this 50 cards: four-cost minion that is collectible
Now I added them all together and we get 151 attack and 208 hp. This means the average drop is 3.02 / 4.16.For the sake of simplicity we just assume 3/4. Add that to the initial 6/4 body and we get a nice 9/8 body for 6 mana compared to 8/10 from Cairne Bloodhoof.The comparison doesn't stop there. The bloodhoofs have no other special abilities unlike the randomly spawned creature. From those 50 cards I counted: 3 deathrattles, 3 charge, 1 stealth, 2 spell damage, 4 taunt, 1 windfury and 1 divine shield. I didn't do the math on other more or less helpful card texts.
In my book this one clearly wins (on average) against the bloodhoofs. PLUS it's a mech AND you can have 2 of this in your deck!
While I don't think it's better than Cairne, as toughness is typically valued higher in constructed, it's certainly a good card to include if you want more of this type of effect.
I'd say it's very hard to tell which one is better, as the 6-attack on the first body may be exactly what the metagame calls for as well.
Adding my 2 cents, but I think Cairne Bloodhoof is a bit better for control decks, while Piloted Sky Golem is better for anything else (mech tempo, midrange druid, you name it.)
There are more negative possibilities though, like Auchenai, Jeeves, or Fel Cannon. And only the possibility of 2 taunts. Not worth the risk. I'd stick with Cairne if you have her. Now if it were a 5-drop you got out of it! DAAAAYUM
Ok, new expansion coming out soon, all cards are out, time to redo math!
Expansion adds 18 collectible 4 mana minions. Following math of Mr. dersleeper, i added their values to get 61 attack, and 80 health total, wich divided by amount of added minions, gives us average stats of 3,38 / 4,44
As we can see, average stats got better, but we need to add up with old ones. After expansion all 4 mana minions will have a total of (151 + 61 =) 212 attack and (208 + 80 =) 288 health. Total amount of minions is now (50 + 18 =) 68. Now divide, and new average stats are: 3,11 / 4,23
So, average drop stats got increased by 0,09 / 0,07. It may seem like not much but, it's something right?
Also, new minions got some pretty good abilities:
Will Piloted sky golem see more play now? I hope so! :)
