|Golden Clockwork Automaton||400||50|
Clockwork Automaton is a niche minion for decks that make frequent use out of their Hero Powers. Its effect is not substantial for basic Hero Powers, so it has much better use out of alternate Hero Powers, such as the ones from hero cards, upgraded Hero Powers from Baku the Mooneater, and DIE, INSECT! from Sulfuras. It has good synergy with Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk, reducing the number of hero power uses to activate his effect.
Notably, due to how Lifesteal works it will quadruple the healing from Bloodreaver Gul'dan's Siphon Life, causing it to deal 6 damage and heal for 12. This effect is cumulative, with the damage and healing doubling with each additional Clockwork Automaton on the board.

- The Clockwork Automaton is creepy, like one of those toys coming to life that you might hear about in a ghost story. The Toymaker in Gilneas is one of the 'good guys,' but for some reason his toys are coming to life and walking the streets. Maybe because they are made using wood from the Witchwood.
