The Lower Resist curse lowers enemies elemental resistances which means fire, cold, lightning and poison. With the necro's bone spells being magic based Lower Resist can't boost their damage output.
A golem is practicaly a meat shield for a bonemancer so the clay golem seems best. Keep in mind that a strong golem requires hard points you may want more in your bone skills. A good way to get both is to set up your weapon slots accordingly: 1st weapon slot get's all +bone skill stuff and 2nd weapon slot get's all +summon/golem skill stuff.
As alternate for a golem you can also go as a pure bonemancer using bone wall+prison instead of the golem while a merc wields an Insight stick for your mana needs.
Venture to the Realms Beyond to get off the beaten path.
Higher end hybrid builds can get golems (especially clay) that are very sturdy. The main summoner/bone build I use has a clay golem with about 14k life as a 1 point wonder. I think blood golem has about 7k. I use it more often any more.
Focusing more on bone would lower this to maybe 7-8k? Not quite as high as one may like, but still plenty good.
