D&D 30-Day Challenge: Day 19- Favorite Elemental/Plant/Construct

This one's easy for me.  My favorite construct, bar none, is the Iron Golem. 

The Iron Golem is wicked tough - immune to non-magic weapons, electrical attacks only slow it down and fire attacks outright heal it.

That's right, fireball, the go-do damage-dealing spell of D&D characters level 5 or higher, heals the Iron Golem.  That is a nasty surprise for any PC party that encounters and has to defeat one.  This is the Golem turned up to 11.  It's not only implacable, incredibly strong and ridiculously tough, it's nearly invulnerable.  I love using Iron Golems, but due to their high level of defensive properties they fall into the same category for me as the lich, a great enemy that is hard to employ at the levels our games usually run.
