Nifty. It really calls to the inner Johnny in me (MTG terminology, sorry).

It sure is very strong, but I think the more interesting question is if Golem/Tunnel alone beats Envoy. It doesn't. Adding one Market makes it close though (better than 2 Markets, to enable cycling your entire deck).

Here's a simple bot that goes Golem/Tunnel + 1 Market:
