Combustible Gearhulk

Combustible Gearhulk Discussion

I like the card Combustible Gearhulk in combination with your high-mana-cost Dragons a lot! But in my playgroup the guys are always playing less mana creature spells with ugly synergies (example: Allys). So I would say the only problem that you could have is to get a few Dragonlord's Servants in your opening hand or at least on top of your library to can cast your high mana dragon's asap. Therefore I would suggest to add more deck manipulation cards like Ponder etc. and maybe also spells that can reduce the mana cost of red spells. This deck seems to be powerful but maybe a bit slow too. Did you playtest it?

Looks amazing! I'd just maybe swap Combustible Gearhulk with Trinket Mage(that is in your maybeboard, right?), netting Sol Ring/Skullclamp/maybe capsules early on can be pretty good.

I can see wanting more 3 drops. May I suggest trying to make it more graveyard based? For example Scrapheap Scrounger Liliana, Death's Majesty Dreamstealer and Strategic Planning all work pretty well with the scarab god. Keeping a splash of red would allow you to still run Combustible Gearhulk Earthshaker Khenra and Heart-Piercer Manticore. I like the idea behind the deck but I feel like it is doing two different things. The free spells and such make it seem similar to an izzet spell based deck that would run like Enigma Drake and the rest of it is more like a removal heavy reanimator dimir deck. Do not take this as being rude please, just my thoughts on the deck and if you enjoy it as is by all means keep it how you like.

Thanks for the statistics on Combustible Gearhulk. He'd be the only reason for me to use red. Sure there's Cathartic Reunion but it sucks when it gets countered and you just end up discarding 3 cards. In the pro-tour(Japan), There was a Blue/White version that didn't do all that well. Now since it's been play tested by the pros, I feel like the deck is meant to be more fun to play with than competitive. Which is why I'd put in the Combustible Gearhulk. I think I'd even go as far as taking out the other targets you'd wanted to hit with God-Pharaoh's Gift or Refurbish just so it sees play. Haha.

I actually did play 2 Combustible Gearhulk in the main and a 3rd in the side. The problem with the red Hulk is it's 6 to play and for 6, I'd rather be putting gift in play. In every matchup, I was siding them out for negates so turn 6 I could refurbish with negate back up. It was by far the last target I wanted to hit from the yard and some games, you need an early blocker and my 5+ cmc cards can't be cut for him... It sucks because I wanted to play him.

If I made something similar it would have to include Combustible Gearhulk.God-Pharaoh's Gift or Refurbish can pull it from the graveyard and it either draws you 3 cards or burns your opponent and gives you more graveyard targets.

Lmk if interested in any of the above + cash. I enabled chat if that's better for you. I'm guessing it's Revised?

Batnam313 on Which bad choice do I make??

If you're into giving your opponent a choice, try Combustible Gearhulk. It can randomly steal games. It either hits your opponent or fills your hand, either way it's a 6/6 first strike which is good no matter what.
