Cataclysmic Gearhulk Discussion

Testing complete. Out of 5 games I went 4-1. I lost because I never drew into what I needed, and the game went late, too, so I was very unlucky. The new build has 1 Noxious Gearhulk, and 2 Cataclysmic Gearhulk instead of Bloodwater Entity and Enigma Drake. Of course 4 Refurbish.

Cataclysmic Gearhulk is kind of a bad card in this deck. It'll wipe most of your servos and leave your opponents stronger, more voltron-ey decks alive.

Might I recommend the combo of Animation Module + Metallic Mimic ? You just name Servo for your type on Metallic Mimic and then you can get infinite 2/2 servos for just 1 mana with the Animation Module trigger.

Strata Scythe -> Conqueror's Flail

Caged Sun -> Cataclysmic Gearhulk

Relic Seeker -> Eight-and-a-Half-Tails

Any Equipment that raises Balan's power to at least 6 paired with Flail allows her to one-shot. Just the two Equipment. I'd say it's worth it.

I have considered the gearhulks. I feel as if Torrential Gearhulk definitely has smaller impact on the board then the one I'm most considering, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, seeing as the best target for torrential would just be another draw spell (or a Refurbish but in this scenario I don't have GPG in the yard yet). By turn four if I haven't gotten God-Pharoah's Gift in the graveyard then I'm probably hurting on the board state as well and would rather target a cataclysmic as opposed to the torrential because then I'd be able to clear the board.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

Rex_JB24 its all good, I did end up putting a few Glacial Fortressand Inspiring Vantage into the deck. I did however swap Combustible Gearhulk out for Cataclysmic Gearhulk because it lets me control the board if things are going badly. I have just finished my sideboard based on the deck types I've been seeing and how testing has been going.

Inspiring Statuary's inability to make Equipment cheaper is a massive deal-breaker. The one card type that this deck would want to be made cheaper is Equipment. Statuary doesn't provide that.


Cataclysmic Gearhulk can be tutored for as well as being easily recurrable. And I have the option to let it live if I'm falling behind and need the body. Gearhulk is a much more flexible sweeper.


Balan, Wandering Knight is the Voltron Commander I've always wanted: one with strong Equipment synergy and actually designed around combat. The goal of the deck is to win with Commander Damage, and Balan does that better than any previous Commander. Other cards (including Sram) can still provide card draw in the 99.

Unless your playgroup has house rules that allow you to use banned cards, then I would suggest cutting Balance for Cataclysmic Gearhulk.
