Yes, you are correct! That would indeed be 4 Cascade triggers. Maelstrom Wanderer is one of the deck's biggest surprise win-cons, actually. I've had several games where I could haste Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder out then cast Maelstrom Wanderer, Cascade a bunch of times then take another combat phase and hit with everything since Maelstrom Wanderer grants Haste to your other creatures!

Have you thought about running See the Unwritten in here? it seems like an excellent card to cascade into

Boza, while I personally do see your point about the mana restrictions, your comment of: "it is impossible to have 12 total mana any sooner than turn 5" is not entirely accurate.
I build speed-Gruul decks all the time. Gruul is super easy to pump out massive amounts of mana. BUT - you have to build for it.
We are assuming you have your hand of 7 cards. Works well if you went 2nd, so you have card advantage each of your turns. That draw really helps.
Turn 1: 7 - 8 cards in hand.
- T1: Any non-tap green land (preferably something like Stomping Ground or a Forest), ideally play a Birds of Paradise, though Elvish Mystic and any other variation works, too
Turn 2: You played 2 cards last turn and drew 1 this turn. 6 - 7 cards in hand.
- T2: Any other land that doesn't enter the battlefield tapped. You'll want to play something like Generator Servant, another 1-drop Dork, if able you can do both but let's not get greedy here. Normally I take a hand with a Servant that can be played T2
Turn 3: You played 2 - 3 more cards and drew 1. 4 - 6 cards in hand.
- T3: Land. You're Gruul so you need to hit tempo. You now have three lands, and 2 - 3 additional mana at your disposal in creatures. At this point, I usually tap all lands, tap my Dork, sac my GS and play a Savage Ventmaw, swinging for 4 and adding . On T3, with six available mana floating from your Ventmaw, you can pay for either a second Savage Ventmaw, a Mana Reflection, or even work up to a Zendikar Resurgent. You get that 7th mana by either discarding a Simian Spirit Guide.
Another option you have available is to, instead of playing a Ventmaw, you tap out everything you've got for your 6 mana. You float 5 of it and use for an Infernal Plunge and target your Dork. This adds back which pushes you into 7. If you are lucky enough to have a Simian Spirit Guide on top of your Infernal Plunge (Don't count on it) you could theoretically nail a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.
Turn 4: There's a lot you could have done last turn. Between playing a land, a Ventmaw / Reflection / Resurgence and giving up an Guide / Plunge, it's hard to really tell where you are at currently. This all becomes situational at this point.
- T4: This is normally where I begin to play big spells. See the Unwritten, Genesis Wave, Hydra Broodmaster, Dragon Broodmother. You could do all of this on T3, if I'm being honest. You do this by swinging with Ventmaw on T3 and dropping any of these 6-drop spells immediately after. But that aside, you play a 4th land. You'll either have 4 mana from lands and 6 from Ventmaw + Dorks, or you could have 8 mana from lands when you consider it'll be doubled via Enchantments + Dorks. Since Mana Reflection doubles Dork mana, too, that could easily tip you at or above 10 mana T4. So you can see just how easy it is to hit 12+ T5.
If you were lucky and hit a T3 Savage Ventmaw who was hasted by Generator Servant (Happens a lot in my decks with the frequency I play them), you could even dump his six into a Mana Reflection. This means on T4, you have 8 mana from lands, 2 mana from a single Dork, and 12 mana from Ventmaw. That's 22 mana, on T4.
To put that into perspective: That's an X=19 Genesis Wave, a Hydra Broodmaster that you also turn Monsterous for 7 () which gets you 7 7/7 tokens, that's an X=20 Rolling Thunder, an X=21 Crater's Claws which deals 23 Damage from the Ferocious trigger...
Gruul, if designed properly, is the single most powerful ramp color combination in the whole game, in my non-professional opinion (lol)

Yes! It absolutely can! And when you Reverberate your Storm Herd, you get to copy your X value too, per rules.
"If the spell Reverberate copies has an X whose value was determined as it was cast (like Earthquake does), the copy has the same value of X."
Reverberate is one of my favorite spells in the whole game. It's so fun pulling off janky garbage combos with it. You ever see a Reverberated See the Unwritten?? It's so stupidly awesome. Or a Reverberated Lightning Helix / Boros Charm / Path to Exile??
Seriously an underused card. Dumbest combo I pulled off was a Howl of the Horde after I attacked with a Savage Ventmaw. The next spell I cast is copied 2 additional times. So I dumped the 6 mana from Ventmaw into a See the Unwritten, allowing me three copies of that crap. Than I tapped two red and cast Reverberate on one of them, copying one of the three.
That gave me four Unwrittens, allowing me to filter through the top 32 cards of my library and pull out the top 8 strongest Dragons in my deck. Ahh, Gruul. You're so stupidly fun to play.

Legendary Artifact Creature - Praetor
As long as Skourm, Absolute is untapped it has Hexproof.
Creatures you control are Artifacts in addition to their other types.
Non-Artifact creatures get -3/-3.
"Flesh and bone are so weak."
Let's go with some good old fashion Timmy cards. That means something big, flashy, and cool. Probably won't assist in winning a deck, but super fun to play.
See the Unwritten is one of my favorite Timmy cards. I run it in two different Dragon decks to cheat my boys out (Via Savage Ventmaw). That gives you a template to work with, but the colors / type / wording is entirely up to you.
Go absolutely stupidly nuts. It's Timmy. Just make sure it's expensive.
