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.

MrGuizee666 on Viability - mono blue wincons

3 months ago

Evening modern community!

I'm trying to put together a monoblue deck to play in modern league in MTGO and currently I don't think there's any win conditions for mono blue besides Murktide Regent. I can't afford buying 4 copies of that card, it's just too expensive. Other cards I can't afford are Archmage's Charm, Tasha's Hideous Laughter, Subtlety and Force of Negation. My deck consists of Baral, Chief of Compliance, Snapcaster Mage and Torrential Gearhulk to make spells like Cryptic Command and Time Stop cheaper or free. So far I've been thinking about the viability of these cards below as my win conditions, but I'm not sure if I should include them: Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Thassa's Oracle. I'm also including Narset, Parter of Veils and Ashiok, Dream Render for some utility. What do you guys think?

excellent points SynergyBuild well said... Im currently working with a control build and am looking for the snapcaster effect that isnt Torrential Gearhulk for synergy with my lower CMC spells... using Briefing with Lightning Helix/Counterspell seems like its strong on its face but it's definitely lacking the utility of flashing in a blocker and less synergy with delirium spells.

Polaris on When do triggered abilities from …

Yes. It's similar to clone creatures (like Clone). They copy as they enter the battlefield, so they come in as whatever they're copying and can trigger ETB abilities of the creature they're a copy of (Torrential Gearhulk, for example). "As" effects are not triggered abilities and don't use the stack, they happen in the same moment as the event they add to.

Triggers are put on the stack as part of state-based actions anyway, and SBAs occur right before players get priority, so you can only have priority between the triggers going on the stack if another event took place between the first and second triggered abilities triggering, even if they triggered for different reasons.

Tl;dr: Yes, attack triggers and exert on attack triggers will trigger simultaneously and get put on the stack in the same group.

Some thoughts:

  • How have you found Shardless Agent? My initial thoughts reading through this list, is that it's a card which has heavily restricted what control options you can play, because you're trying to avoid hitting stuff like Counterspell, Spell Snare, Thoughtseize, Opt and the likes. Without many fast/efficient ways to deal with your opponents early game, I'm wondering whether having Chalice of the Void in your mainboard makes more sense (i.e. I see more matchups where you'd want to bring this in rather than leave it out).

  • I'm worried that without any way to mill your opponent, Drown in the Loch might be hard to find value from in some games. Though I do get that most of the time it's not a big issue, as modern is a fairly self-graveyard-filling meta in general.

  • I'm not sure Cackling Counterpart is worth it, when it could just be copies 3-4 of Abrupt Decay. Intending to copy Torrential Gearhulk feels far too much like "win more". You also can't get the cascade trigger if you copy Shardless Agent, because the token isn't "cast".

  • The full playset of Torrential Gearhulk feels excessive. With your decks card draw, and the fact it costs 6 mana, I would have thought 2 (or maybe 3?) copies more reasonable. Drawing a second one is probably a dead card in hand a lot of the time. With 3 copies, you're still very likely to draw one before you drop your 6th land.

Dauthi Voidwalker seems out of place here. I mean don't get me wrong a 3/2 unblockable for BB isn't horrible. But the rest of the card text isn't doing anything. Tarmogoyf is probably a better card here. You could almost cut black entirely and swap out the removal for bounce effects. 4x Counterspell seems like too many as well. Maybe 1-2 Torrential Gearhulk instead?
