Production-Line Lackey (1R)
Creature -- Goblin Rigger (Common)
Production-Line Lackey can't attack or block unless you control a tapped artifact.
When Production-Line Lackey dies, Assemble 1. (Exile a non-creature, non-equipment artifact card from your graveyard: Put a Contraption artifact token into play with all abilities of the card exiled this way.)
Rust-pile Reclaimer (2RR)
Creature -- Goblin Rigger (Uncommon)
2RR,T: Assemble 2 (Exile up to 2 non-creature, non-equipment artifact cards from your graveyard: Put a Contraption artifact token into play with all abilities of each card exiled this way.)
Whenever Rust-pile Reclaimer deals combat damage to a player, put up to two artifact cards you own from exile into your graveyard.
"Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Or just beat the bloody thing 'till it starts workin' right. That usually works."
--Grakk, Factory-Floor Boss"
Factory-Floor Fixer (4)

3,T: Regenerate another target artifact.
5,T: Assemble 3 (Exile up to 3 non-creature, non-equipment artifact cards from your graveyard: Put a Contraption artifact token into play with all abilities of each card exiled this way.)
Quote from Withengar »I'm pretty sure this sort of disambiguation falls into the realm of common sense more than good card design vs. bad card design. How often will what you're talking about ever be an issue? Will it ever be an issue? Can you think of one circumstance, outside of inventing a specific unprecedented card to illustrate your point?
Quote from Withengar »Explain why Renegade Krasis works and Steamboss Flogger shouldn't (in combination with the mechanic I've presented).
Quote from Withengar »EDIT: Alternatively--and this seems like the better option--I could just change it from "all abilities" to "all activated abilities." I also wouldn't have to pigeonhole it with the "non-creature" stipulation anymore.
Quote from harlannowick »And equipment definitely doesn't work with your ability, right?
Quote from Withengar »Quote from harlannowick »And equipment definitely doesn't work with your ability, right?I see your point. Shuko with anything else is an instant-equip. Worse, pile effects onto one equipment and equip it for the cheaper cost. Should I add a non-equipment stipulation instead of a non-creature stipulation?
Quote from Withengar »-Third, that depends heavily on the environment and the final implementation. Would you say Tempered Steel was dead in limited? I can tell you it most certainly would have been in Theros. I don't know why you'd assume a mechanic like this would show up anywhere outside of an artifact-heavy block.
-Fourth, I'm pretty sure that if they can get away with Bestow, this shouldn't be too difficult to understand.
-Fifth, drawing cards is dangerous. Tutoring lands is dangerous. Reanimation is dangerous. It all depends on the final implementation and the cards that it's interacting with. Dread Return would do very little for modern without Dredge, for example.
Quote from Withengar »Assemble X (Reveal the top X cards of your library, then exile any number of artifact cards from among them. If you do, put a Contraption artifact token with all activated abilities of each card exiled this way onto the battlefield. Put all other revealed cards on the bottom of your library in any order.)
