Torrential Gearhulk Discussion

This is meant to be more of a midrange deck than strictly control. I play a few finishers to close out the game rather than hoping for a bolt-snap-bolt or bust which is the current problem with Jeskai. Torrential Gearhulk is such a finisher and works well with The Scarab God . If I feel it is too slow I will consider another Snapcaster Mage in its place, but this has not been the case.

Dreadbore is on the sideboard because I want to be playing at instant speed as much as possible. It is only useful if planeswalkers are present.

The cycle lands are to avoid flooding not for fetching. It is an added bonus they can be fetched in a pinch if I need to save life. I haven't had any issues with the mana base yet, but I will be flexible if problems arise.

If you're looking for cards to cut and replace, Vindicate is probably worse than Anguished Unmaking unless you see a lot of problematic lands like Homeward Path in your meta. Instants are less important than permanents in a flicker deck Esper Charm and Predict especially seem a little underwhelming. I don't think Dictate of Erebos is very good without a sac outlet either. I also don't think you'll have enough white mana sources early on to use Knight of the White Orchid. Maybe replace it with a colorless tutor like Pilgrim's Eye or Thaumatic Compass  Flip.

With Aminatou's -1, you can probably get a lot of work out of Aligned Hedron Network Especially if you can use it to get more triggers off of Sepulchral Primordial and Torrential Gearhulk than just flickering them individually. Even better, if you want to add Conjurer's Closet or Rings of Brighthearth (or just use Oath of Teferi you already have) you can have Aligned Hedron Network lock all the big guys and Lavinia of the Tenth detain all the smaller ones every turn.

I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert on this kind of deck, so I'm going to try to keep my comments fairly generic.

Regarding your lands: Sulfur Falls seems preferable to the Vivid Creek and Vivid Crag. Those seem odd inclusions in a two color deck. Even Temple of Epiphany is better, isn't it? Would a Spire of Industry also work, since you're artifact-heavy enough to have Mishra's Workshop? There's also Shivan Reef or Steam Vents.

Does Torpor Orb not negate Torrential Gearhulk? Not sure if that's an accepted risk.

You should just run Dreadbore in the main since it hits multiple targets. you have a lot of removal as it stands so I don't think Terminate is necessary if you have the other card. Also as much as I'd hate to say it you gotta get rid of Torrential Gearhulk. As fast as the modern format is that card will not be as powerful as Snapcaster Mage which you should run a playset. Stubborn Denial is not a bad card and you do have a couple of fat creatures. But the version of this I think you wanna be playing doesn't play it in the main.

@mcpilz. While I agree with Vraska's Contempt being to pricey mana, Torrential Gearhulk fits because they should have a creature, which prolongs the game until I can effectively put Torrential Gearhulk into play. I've been toying with Hero's Downfall instead of Vraska's Contempt.

Kinda feels like the mana curve for modern is a bit steep. Cards like Torrential Gearhulk & Vraska's Contempt are too expensive for modern imho

Hello! I just pulled a History of Benalia that I have no use for. I'm looking to send it along to someone who can use it. I'd be happy to look through binders, but here are some standard cards I'm interested in:

Some (most) of those slightly outclass History at present, but I'm happy to toss in filler as needed, trade for non-rotating cards, or just look through binders for goodies. So, if you're looking for a History of Benalia, let me know!
