K1ngr3ese on Hulkamania 3.0 (Mardu God-Pharoah's Gift)

Greetings fellow reanimator! We have some bad matchups in meta... ramunap red (hyper agro), heavy control, and the always solid temur energy.

Sideboard for 2 of the 3 mainboard for the other.

Tips for these matchups. Hyper agro requires a consistent 1 drop removal, and 3 drop sweeper to setup turn 4 gpg pain. Temur requires a way to kill bristling hydra. Destroy sweepers like Fumigate or my preference, hand control Harsh Scrutiny. Control requires hand control to protect your stuff. Duress Gonti, Lord of Luxury Kitesail Freebooter Dreamstealer are all good options.artifact hate like Dispossess Abrade and By Force are for the mirror match.

How you choose to set that up will be based on your meta.

Notes on the main deck... Metalwork Colossus does not get cheaper from gearhulks, only your G-PG(its noncreature artifact)... and furthermore G-PG only brings him back as a 4/4 with no cool ETB, so i dont think he really works here... esecially since he has his own recursion from Gy. I am just not a fan of madcap at all. I would rather dig for a refurbish. When i played with madcap it lost me the game a few times so I took it out and never looked back. You should also run a minimum of 24 lands(missing a land drop with this deck, hell, in this meta is generally a loss... especially with our average cmc around 4.

My opinion, mardu gearhulk reanimator is weaker with G-PG(your creatures come in with minuses essentially). That is why i use Liliana, Death's Majesty. You can view my version(s) in my profile if you would like.

Hope this helps.

Nice! I see you adjusted the deck a bit also! Looks a lot better. If panharmonicon is what is putting you over the top, it should probably be a 4 of, yknow. So you can have it every game. Against you i would side in 2 Abrade and 1 By Force for the sweltering suns, and Duress for fatal push

Shabmaster on Insult Celebrant

Go down the Gideon, Martial Paragon since it is two expensive and ineffective. Go down By Force, or at least move it to the sideboard. Move Authority of the Consuls to the sideboard. Go down the Hungry Flames for another Insult / Injury. You need 1 drop creatures (the mana-curve is a little off, two many three drops). This deck could use 4 Bomat Courier. I think you could lose the Aerial Responder for more Combat Celebrant and Honored Crop-Captain in order to maximize damage. I really like the idea though. Sweet deck my dude.

I'd drop more enchantment/sorcery, due to the nature of your commander. Risk of getting hit by your own thing will hurt.

Creature wise, you have a LOT of mana dork that will I feel may get underwhelming later. Craterhoof Behemoth would be recommended to correct that issue.

Emzed on Mardu Nahiri

Pithing Needle naming Nahiri or Chalice of the Void on 1 could be quite painful for you. While those are not problems you will face all the time, maybe Anguished Unmaking, Fragmentize, By Force or more Kolaghan's Command could find their way into your 75.
What are your thoughts on Surgical Extraction vs Extirpate? Against Dredge or other fast graveyard combo decks the "free" spell seems better since you can freely tap out for your expensive cards and still interact.

APPLE01DOJ thanks for the advices. I was thinking about splashing but i am afraid to lose my devotion. I could put 4 Dragonskull Summit in the main deck to put 2 copies of Shatterstorm or 2 copies By Force in the side. How do you see that?

I could put 2 Bloodstained Mire and 2 mountains in the deck

Splashing green or red will improve the Affinity match up. Shatterstorm/Creeping Corrosion, Lightning Bolt, Naturalize, Shattering Spree, Vandalblast, By Force, Molder, Natural State.

Liliana of the Veil and adding Damnation back will improve the Eldrazitron match up. Though it can still be tough.
