Villages are protected by Iron golems which are great at fighting things up close, however they have a difficult time dealing with ranged threats like illager's and skeletons. Also, given the Iron Golems large frame are unable to get to the things that are in closed spaces. A zombie gets in a house the iron golem cant help from the outside. What if in addition to adding Copper in the Caves and Cliffs update we got a new Golem to help defend the villagers. A copper golem that fights by shooting arrows. They can be the opposite of the iron golem, smaller than the player and villagers and much less health. They could be cowardly as copper is a softer metal than iron, and fire/lightening proof (both things the Iron golem lacks) it would give Copper more functionality and be something the players could build to boost village defenses. They could engage at a certain range to fight but when the threat gets too close the copper golem flees, it would keep the Iron golem relevant while also making the duo depend on each other. It could be built by placing a Pumpkin on a single Copper block, Just like the snow and Iron Golems.
