This card would be a lot better if the land tapping was part of the cost instead of just the effect. But if you play to tap all your lands every turn, it can be a nice addition to your deck. (at least in my humble opinion)

Can someone please tell me if a Chimeric Idol is affected by summoning sicness or not? The card comes into play as an artifact and artifacts don't have summoning sicness, right? Or is this card an exception?

Chimeric Idol does not have summoning sickness (Well it doesnt where I play) All artifacts can tap the turn they come into play. This card is awesome in a burn deck where you usually have no defence. It also gets around circle of proctections and creature enchantments.

The fact that this card's ability is part of the effect and not of the cost is better than vice versa.
If you're tapped out or only have one land, you can still activate his ability.
It's just like playing Ghastly Demise Buy if you have no creatures out. Get the picture?

So... is it possible to attack when this card comes into play? Since it is infact an artifact.

All permanents have summoning sickness. It's just that it only effects them when they are creatures. So if an Idol becomes a creature, it will have summoning sickness if it was played that turn.

A 3/3 for {3}, and can avoid being killed by creature killing spells... becomes a creature when you want it to be... awsom!

Then again... its basically just a 3/3 creature for {3}, which costs the tapping of your lands (whether they are untapped or not), so it does have its downsides.

All-in-all, still great.

think manabarbs/ powersurge/citadel of pain deck. This is a great way to tap your lands and avoid the damage from all three sources without the need for COP-white.

This card is really good. It avoids getting hit by any sorcery speed creature kill. It also works really well with Nether Spirit Buy since it isn't a creature when it's in the graveyard. It's an artifact, so it can go into any deck that has a use for it without worrying about colored costs. Definitely the turtle that goes the distance.
