False Appearance. While the card golem remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a pile of cards.

Undersized: A card golem is small enough that it fits through holes as small as 6" wide.


Card Slice. Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) slashing damage.

Card Throw. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage

I name thee papercut

The deck flows into a vaguely humanoid shape and starts launching cards that flow into its hand from somewhere.

Card golems are perhaps the weakest of all golems, but they are perfect for surveillance. They are only significantly deadly in hordes or when unseen.


  • Poisoned:
    • all attacks deal an additional 1d4 poison damage. cr 1/2
  • Deck of many things:
    • each throw attack forces the effect of a random deck of many things card on the target. cr 12
    • Created by an extremely unwise archmages
