Combustible Gearhulk

Artifact Creature — Construct

First Strike

When Combustible Gearhulk enters the battlefield, target opponent may have you draw three cards. If the player doesn't, put the top three cards of your library into the graveyard, then Combustible Gearhulk deals damage to that player equal to the total converted mana cost of those cards.

p0megranates on Mayael Pubstomp

@NaturalKRUNCH I used to run See the Unwritten but I'm not as much a fan. At 6 mana I'd rather just tap Mayael and spin the wheel there. I like Selvala's Stampede as a unique effect different from Mayael's tap ability because in addition to hitting things from your library like See the Unwritten does, it's one of a few effects in the deck that empties out your hand, and it's really hard to play things in your hand otherwise.

Combustible Gearhulk does draw cards often, but I don't think the deck wants to do that. If you play a fat creature and it doesn't do anything to prevent your opponents from winning immediately, it's not helpful. Remember that when you hit 6 mana, your opponents will be enacting their own gameplan too and you need to out-tempo them, not out-value them (you'll naturally out-value them via Mayael and having fatter duders than they do).

I find Spire of Industry and Prismatic Lens odd choices for Daretti. What do you need any color of mana for? One card I can recommend is Combustible Gearhulk . It's great for card draw and sometimes big damage because of the decks high CMCs.

Not necessarily. You’ve got lots of ways to damage your opponents on entry. Loop worldgorger with either Kiki or flameshadow by making a token before the first one’s ability resolves and you’ll just kill everyone/gain infinite mana/draw lots of cards if something like Combustible Gearhulk is in play. Then when you want to stop just don’t make a token and use that mana and draw power to do whatever you want.

If your opponents are still alive anyway. Which is unlikely.

It would be interesting to see how many cards you'd draw off of Ulvenwald Observer before it dies. How do your creatures usually die board wipes, kill spells or combat? Do you think he'll stick around to draw you more than three cards? If not Combustible Gearhulk might be the worth a trial. I'd love to know how many people would give you the cards and how much damage you'd give to the people who don't.

Guardian Project is probably the better choice because its harder to get rid of enchantments, you can play it in the early game and you draw a card every time you play a creature (which is alot).

What do you think of Wilderness Reclamation ? Lets you untap end of your turn giving you mana for Mayael's ability. Also if you like that there's Seedborn Muse and you can do it every turn? Gross!

Does your deck need card draw? Does your hand get empty often? Benefactor's Draught seems conditional would you be better with a card like Guardian Project ? Have you thought about playing Combustible Gearhulk ? With 31 cards with a mana cost above six you ether draw three cards or deal a healthy amount of damage.

What are your feelings on Greenwarden of Murasa vs Seeds of Renewal ? Greenwardens cheaper and can be hit by Mayael.

Glad to have been of some sort of help! I can assure you, Goblin Welder , Feldon of the Third Path and Daretti, Scrap Savant are beyond awesome! Your graveyard becomes even more a toolbox, to abuse especially with ETBs.

Speaking of ETBs, Combustible Gearhulk is really solid: card draw in red and a 6/6 first strike for 6. Nice.

Skullclamp is an all star, especially if you have a lot of things that produce thopters or myrs, (even the ones from Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer go well with it).

Mass recursion like Scrap Mastery is fun, that's why I run it along Open the Vaults and Roar of Reclamation ... But even more fun if it also makes your opponents sacrifice their artifacts to put nothing on the field. Not to mention,it also gets rid of things like Darksteel Colossus or Colossus of Akros .

I'd also point out Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain , and Vedalken Archmage for endless value.

Next things to buy for me, when I'll have money to spare, will be Glimmervoid , Academy Ruins and those foil Goblin Welder and Sharuum the Hegemon !
