Bronze Golem (Not requiring the addition of bronze)
I will start this post with my thought process behind this mob before I list its properties. I wanted another non-hostile monster-killing mob like the iron golem that was less expensive and, therefore, less powerful, like something of a halfway point between the iron and snow golems. This mob would be made mostly from copper, with a less prevalent appearance of iron, since in the real world bronze is made from copper and traces of metals that are not in the game. The bronze golem would be player-made and does not spawn naturally on its own, like the snow golem. It naturally attacks monsters, but will become hostile to players in select circumstances (More on this later).
The Bronze Golem can be spawned by placing the following blocks in the following arrangement:
Space / Pumpkin or Jack 'o Lanterns / Space
Lightning Rod / Copper Block / Lightning Rod
Space / Iron Block / Space
The Bronze Golem has the ability to send small projectile shots of electricity at mobs, due to the lightning rods. This increases its ability to do harm to mobs without handling them close by, which compensates for its proportionally small amount of health. Since it has Lightning Rods in its spawning recipe, the Bronze Golem also acts as a lightning rod and will become charged if struck. This will automatically replenish its health and increase the strength and frequency of its attacks for a limited amount of time.
