Combustible Gearhulk

Artifact Creature — Construct

First Strike

When Combustible Gearhulk enters the battlefield, target opponent may have you draw three cards. If the player doesn't, put the top three cards of your library into the graveyard, then Combustible Gearhulk deals damage to that player equal to the total converted mana cost of those cards.

Telerik on Turn One Drakuseth?

@DaWubber: I think it's actually a risky plan. One kill spell and your done. Combustible Gearhulk can be good if your opponent runs Path to Exile , because it will deal damage or draw cards anyway.

Apart from that, it's really fun.

If you’re planning on running Mana Geyser , might I also recommend using Reiterate ? It’s a low opportunity cost card that you can net infinite mana off of Geyser, or use it to piggyback off of counterspells or tutors!

I’ve also been looking at draw spells like Risk Factor , Combustible Gearhulk , or Sin Prodder to pressure whoever is in last to “help” you.

Very excited for our new resident angry Dwarf!

I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

Hear hear! I ran a few games with it last night and ran into mana problems, so I will have to adjust that accordingly. Madcookie Combustible Gearhulk is a great addition. I will try running that and Darksteel Colossus . Thanks for the advice! Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Reality Shift and Mana Geyser deserve a try. Using Reiterate on the latter can be good fuel for an Xtra thicc Banefire or Comet Storm , which were actually the targets for Thousand-Year Storm . I've gotten the combo off successfully a few times and I can usually stall and pull off a lethal "x" in the late game. I think Mana Geyser has the potential to get that giant x spell off more consistently, so I will definitely try it out! Thank you all for the advice and suggestions. I am really enjoying building and playing this deck

Cutting lands is good and fun until you get your expectations subverted and got stuck with 3 lands the whole game. My opinion is a deck has to have around half its card dedicated to mana producing (lands, rocks, etc). As it is you are sitting at 43(35 lands and 8 mana rocks) and I'd strongly suggest you don't cut more. Keep in mind that Jhoira is relatively high-priority commander for Doom Blade and yolo casting her on turn 3 and expecting nothing happens to her so you can double suspend is either a pipe dream or an indication you are playing against beginners.

Also I think you could use a bit more card draw in the deck as I counted 5 or so spells. Maybe add Combustible Gearhulk in the place of that 8/8 Theros kraken.

Otherwise good deck. Cheers!

(I'd also run Obliterate with some indestructible bois like both Ulamogs, Darksteel Colossus , Blightsteel Colossus and the like, but its not for everyone's taste)
