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.

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?

You generally don't need to exile all copies; and furthermore, by the time you can cast Crumble, they already have tron assembled. Setting them back 1-2 turns is generally enough when you're playing control.

Regarding replacements: if you're looking for other cards, Kroxa is SUPER good. Taxes them early and wins the game late. There's plenty of other playable options though: Liliana, the Last Hope is good (though best with more creatures to recur), Kalitas, Brazen Borrower , Nimble Obstructionist , Tasigur, even Murktide Regent . Sprite Dragon is also an absolute beating, but would need a significant rework of the deck to get max value.

I'm also a sucker for the Torrential Gearhulk / Into the Story package if not running Lurrus.

Legendary Creature - Eldrazi Titan

~ can not be countered, flying, trample, protection from colours.

When you cast ~, draw 5 cards, then reveal a card from your hand. Exile up to 2 target permanents with mana value equal to or less than the mana value of the revealed card. If you revealed a colourless, non-artifact card this way, take an extra turn after this one.

Annihilator 6.

Whenever a player would sacrifice any number of permanents, if they do not control the required number of permanents, they exile cards from their hand equal to the difference.


ULTRA ANNIHILATOR! Slapping two creatures on one card is not unheard of ( Anax and Cymede for example).
