Torrential Gearhulk

Artifact Creature — Construct


When Torrential Gearhulk enters the battlefield, you may cast target instant card from your graveyard without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

The Royal Scions seems like a great way to ensure Awoken Horror is a 2hko or turning Snapcaster Mage into an actual clock, while Ral, Izzet Viceroy seems too slow. I would either play a second The Royal Scions instead or an additional threat to close games such as a single Torrential Gearhulk . Note that The Royal Scions ultimate also actually attempts to close the game!

I am also interested on what you think of Kess, Dissident Mage , could it be better than Torrential Gearhulk ? Kess if allowed to survive has the potential to gain much more card advantage than a simple gearhulk could.

Hi! Your deck looks sweet! I do, however have a few suggestions. I'd drop the mill cards for better removal, and sweepers. Might I suggest 4 Fatal Push and 3 Languish ? Liliana, the Last Hope is a powerful planeswalker that control the board and also be a wincon. Torrential Gearhulk ? Thing in the Ice  Flip is much better is a tempo deck, I'd drop those. I'd drop a Treasure Cruise for a Dig Through Time , and add anywhere from 1-3 Into the Story . Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip is probably good enough run three of, and if you draw another one, you just pitch it to itself. Tyrant's Scorn is probably good in this deck, I'd run 2-4. Lastly, either Murderous Rider , Hero's Downfall , or Noxious Grasp would be helpful in the sideboard against your biggest weakness: Mirrors and Oko decks.

Also 4 Fabled Passage to trigger Revolt. Would you consider dropping a Dig Through Time for an Into the Story ? Your graveyard is quite taxed with all your delve spells for a deck with Literal Actual Baby Jace  Flip and Torrential Gearhulk . Also, I would go up another wrath, perhaps with an Anger of the Gods . This deck definitely seems like it has a problem beating Oko. Maybe a Noxious Grasp or two in the sideboard? How do you feel about Wandering Fumarole

i'd go a control route with Ionize and Absorb . good finishers could include Dragonlord Ojutai , Torrential Gearhulk , or AEtherling

I like the toolbox look of this deck, a spell for every situation. I can see that you avoided combo's nicely, but I will say that Wishes are technically meta dependent since commander doesn't officially support them yet. But if your meta allows them, then all the more power to ya!

In case of wish cards not being allowed maybe try the following!

Now for suggestions - Un-budgeted:

Yawgmoth's Will : This card will allow you to replay spells already spent. Don't let its competitive stigma stop you from considering it!

Budget friendly:

Goblin Electromancer This guy will help you reduce costs without reducing other's costs as well.

Torrential Gearhulk get some extra value from your instants

Unbound Flourishing You play a lot of x costs, and this might help you out there!

I noticed that you had Arcane Melee in your deck. This card can be quite dangerous depending on your meta, so be careful when joining new pods with it. I know I've had it backfire on me several times!

I enjoyed looking through your deck and can't wait to see what future cards bring to it!

@Pabs444: I like Hero's Downfall here because it lets you kill 'walkers off of Torrential Gearhulk , which is pretty useful. Ideally, you'll be able to just counter them, though, so I'll try a split and see how that works out.

I was going to say Wild Slash as well.

For your Sideboard I would suggest at least a couple of copies of Abrade

A lot of decks I've looked at thus far have copies of Smuggler's Copter and Heart of Kiran in them. It's also excellent against Torrential Gearhulk

I will give you more comments once I've playtested this a few times.
