Combustible Gearhulk

Artifact Creature — Construct

Combustible Gearhulk Discussion

Vile-Wesker on Thantis Political Slaughterhouse

@NominaeThanks for your reply. Lots of cool beaters in that bunch. I'm especially fond of Genesis Hydra in there and Combustible Gearhulk for either draw or damage. Been looking at the Hornet Queen while testing I found doing 3 dedication has been troublesome for my Tempo with this deck at times. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Would bring a lot of hurt in this deck as having 6 to 8 lands at turn 5 isn't strange in this deck.

As to the others they sure look great for in the deck but their bodies seem to be easily dealt with assuming I have to fight with them I generally want big bad beaters. The bigger they are the more they need to trade for getting rid of them.

Hey, if you're looking for big beaters, you can look at eldrazis with Artisan of Kozilek.. In jund, you can have Kresh the Bloodbraided, Butcher of Malakir, Corpsejack Menace works with your commander and kresh.. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Protean Hulk, Combustible Gearhulk Verdurous Gearhulk Noxious Gearhulk.. Hornet Queen can make your ennemies attack into 1/1 deathtouch which is fun There's a lot of dragons stuff such as Hellkite Overlord, Hellkite Tyrant, Bogardan Hellkite Dragonlord Atarka..

There's some big stuff lovers such as Spearbreaker Behemoth, Genesis Hydra..

For big green stuff and ramp, you can look at my

Nissa, vastwood commander

Maybe some of those cards cost a lil' bit over 5$, i'm not sure on some prices, but I'll look for cards that benefits always having to attack or always be attacked from now on, and I might get back to you ! Good luck on your deck, Thantis seems really fun !

Plahbie on Lazer Zap - Turn 4 Win (Post-Rotation)

See, in my opinion this deck doesn't really want to flip Search  Flip. It's a lot less mana intensive to just keep it as a surveil 1 per turn, and I must say that the effect can immensely benefit a subpar starting hand if it doesn't start off with too many lands. Still, it is meant for a slower game and I have been meaning to remove it if there is a better option (as it has shot up in price, and not really because of this deck).

Anyway, Risk Factor just isn't very good. I'm sorry to say it, but the opponent will always choose the option that is least harmful for them. If they see that drawing three cards would be good for you, they'd take the damage - and the damage isn't much above that of a Wizard's Lightning. If it's late game and you're using this for the damage, they'll let you draw. It will always be the worse of the two options for you (remember Combustible Gearhulk?).

I understand your problem with Search  Flip though, and I believe that it is warranted. Despite being ranked as Red, it can easily be replaced - I'm just not sure by what. Thank you for the suggestions regardless! It is extremely helpful and I welcome any more you might have.

I could see cutting Abrade and going to 4 Combustible Gearhulk. Why all the artifact hate?

FTWinchester on Lathliss, Dragon Queen [FTWinchester]

I took out Dragonlord's Servant for Herald's Horn because it does the same thing and also has occasional card advantage. I like Coat of Arms over Door of Destinies because you can hold on to Coat and use it like an Overrun. Plus Door of Destinies has a ramp up time and has the cast problem like Sarkhan's Unsealing. I've been thinking about taking out Dragonspeaker Shaman for another dragon. Since I already have a 2 cost reducer with Urza's Incubator. I have a Blade of Selves in my paper deck (idk why it isnt on here I'll have to double check my list) so thats why I run Spawn of Thraxes.

The biggest challenge so far with this deck is the lack of card draw. I have Wheel of Fortune in another deck but I don't think I want that type of effect because I don't have graveyard recursion. But everytime I've used Dragon Mage, he has over performed. I'm thinking about testing Howling Mine and Font of Mythos.

Other cards I'm brainstorming about: Feldon of the Third Path, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Goblin Welder, Combustible Gearhulk, Spit Flame, Knollspine Dragon, Mind's Eye.

Tenshi41 on Angel Tribe

Response to Vargavaka comment.

It ramps like crazy almost have no problem with the CMC. I am having trouble with control decks; they are able to destroy my one or two big creatures leaving me with little cards in hand and a bunch of useless equipment. I’m thinking about upping the number of draw cards.
I do have several things to protect me against wrath effects like Teferi's Protection, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, and Wild Ricochet If the spell is targeted. I also can tutor for Teferi and Wild Ricochet with Sunforger. I have more trouble with repeated single target removal then I do wrath effects, but Selfless Spirit dose sound very good option. I can also reoccur its effect with Sun Titan.

  • Treasure Nabber: Likely to get removed if non green, little effect on green players.
  • Archangel of Thune: Not going wide, most of the time I have few creatures on battlefield making the effect very weak.
  • Angelic Skirmisher: Most other angel have one or more of the effects granted, making it less powerful.
  • Blade of Selves: Not enough ETB effects or synergy. CMC high to equip.

Adding Cards:

  • Combustible Gearhulk: More card draw, with high CMC can do massive damage with commander out. Synergizes well with commander and top card manipulation.
  • Etali, Primal Storm: Cheating cards in to play. Synergizes well with high CMC deck and top card manipulation.
  • Druidic Satchel: Good Ramp and Blockers. Synergizes well with top card manipulation.
  • Selfless Spirit: Good protect from board wipes, and repeatable with Sun Titan.

Thoughts on Field of Ruin, Detection Tower, and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for the mana base. Also Combustible Gearhulk is a big beater that burns/draws. Deck looks sweet!
