Rampant Gearhulk 3RRBB Artifact Creature

Improvise (Your artifacts can help cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for {1}.)

When ~ Enters the battlefield if it was cast from hand deal 5 damage to any target.

When ~ Enters the battlefield and was not cast from hand deal damage to a creature or planeswalker equal to the amount of artifacts you control.


I hope this is the kind of thing you had in mind. I changed the second ability last minuet to not target players as I thought it would be too powerful!

I really enjoyed making this as I do love Darreti!!!! So next challenge make an Izzet gearhulk and base it around the new Saheeli, the Gifted

@DrkNinja: If there was a reason, It's Alongside Elspeth in the Starfields of Nyx (Though it was assumed Elspeth is part of the same Literature Circle in Kamigawa as Tamiyo, & Narset; so I guess She's alive after all this? It would be a HUGE surprise if Daxos knew Elspeth is a Constellation, & went directly to Nyx to free her; As an Orzhov Masked, Zombified, abomination. I dun think we'll ever know...

Anyways, Magic Story Aside, what do you think of the following:

Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: Leeches life, creates BIG tokens for a small price, & can use tokens as card advantage/Lifegain fodder.

Saheeli, the Gifted: Makes Tokens, Reduces price for cards to play, & doubles all Artifacts you control.

Garruk, Apex Predator: Kills enemy Walkers, Makes Tokens with Deathtouch, has Lifegain in the form of Killing enemy Creatures, & an opponent will be dealt 5 or so additional damage from each attacking creature, & gains Trample for leftover Damage.

Estrid, the Masked: This is where the Chain Veil Combo gets BS for real. She gives my walkers Auras with Titem Armor, & you can put as many as you need.

If you don't like Cryptolith Rite for whatever reason, just know the mana potential with a lot of tokens is potentially worth it; unless you can think of a better alternative. ;)

Saheeli, the Gifted's second +1 can potentially make Desolation Twin free to cast, but that alone might not be enough to warrant including it.

Anyways, thanks for the list - I really want to try it out! Quick question, though: do you feel the deck is still viable without the more expensive cards (e.g., Force of Will, Karn, Scion of Urza, Moxes, etc.)?

Rzepkanut: It's not hyper competitive, and doesn't do much other than ramp in the first few turns. That being said, it's VICIOUS once it gets going, and plays enough countermagic to reasonably get to the late-game.

Not to mention that in testing, it's been EXTREMELY fun, haha. I get to do a bunch of really silly Timmy/Johnny things, and it often comes out of nowhere. I controlled 4 tokens and Brudiclad, then cast Karn, Scion of Urza and used his -2. Suddenly, once I moved to combat, I had six 7/7 Constructs, and swung for an immediate victory. This was on turn 5 (curving off of a Saheeli, the Gifted). It's a bit inconsistent and janky, but it does WORK. I'd highly recommend from my experiences so far!

I used to run a Trostani deck, actually! I really do miss the Populate for this deck, but in many ways my commander is a mass Populate every turn, plus makes tokens. It's really strange, and not many UR decks run like this. I love it. I will say that I'm nervous about not having enough mana to cast Desolation Twin, and all of my methods of cheating it don't cast, unfortunately.

In terms of necessary cards? Hmmmm. There are a few cards I'd describe as "musts": Arcane Artisan, Combat Celebrant, Faerie Artisans, Helm of the Host, Karn, Scion of Urza, Mimic Vat, Reef Worm, Saheeli, the Gifted, and Sharding Sphinx, maybe? But honestly, the only thing I'd say is a "must" is to have a good balance of cards that MAKE scary tokens, cards that make token copies of things, scary things to make copies OF, and cards that make a bunch of small tokens. That balance is tricky, and I'm still tweaking it ;)

TLDR, though, I'd highly recommend trying him at least. Some of the most fun I've had in years.

This is great. I have never played a Planeswalker commander before but i can see how this would be effective. May i suggest Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. she would be a excellent way to constantly draw and drop your artifacts. and when you can get Saheeli, the Gifted to -7 you could have quite a board state.

+1 Great deck

I saw the new commander and thought 'ayyy... thats pretty good'. Basically the deck consists of 2-3 CMC rocks, cheerios, Stroke of Genius effects and eldrazi titans. Oh and Polymorph.

Saheeli, the Gifted is a great polymorph commander cos she can shift the fatties that and up clogging up your hand. Ya boi Kozilek, the Great Distortion is in there too cos the plethora of rocks will allow you to get double colourless

The cards I would consider cutting are: Cryptolith Rite, Paradox Engine, Saheeli, the Gifted, Will Kenrith, and Tezzeret the Seeker . Cryptolith Rite makes your creatures produce mana, but you only have 10 creatures plus the tokens some of your planeswalkers can generate, but since you don't have enough pillowfort cards, you're likely to be trading creatures with your opponent, making the Rite fairly weak. Paradox Engine isn't doing much, even if you have Cryptolith Rite on the field. Saheeli, the Gifted can make tokens, which is good, but they'll likely just chump block other creatures, the cost reduction is nice, but most of the time it won't be more than a reduction of 2, and her ultimate is lack luster since the artifacts you have are for the most part not worth having in duplicates. Without Doubling Season, Rowan Kenrith can really mess you up if you don't have your pillowfort set up. Your deck does not have enough artifacts to make Tezzeret the Seeker 's abilities worthwhile.

Besides those, I'm not seeing too many other problematic cards, so it might come down to cards that don't help you as much. Perhaps Angrath, the Flame-Chained, Mana Vault, The Chain Veil, Mystic Barrier, Unsubstantiate, Ever-Watching Threshold, and Oath of Ajani
