Boldwyr Heavyweights Discussion
8 months ago
I'm trying to build a deck around Boldwyr Heavyweights and Shizuko, Caller of Autumn that is basically a friendship deck - I played against someone whom played a deck that had those two specifically and want to recreate that deck.
I prefer 60-card modern but if I have to go either Legacy, Vintage, or Casual, that'll be fine and if it could be made into an EDH/Commander deck as well as 60-card, even better. But I mainly want to recreate the 60-card deck first.

You have a lot of different ideas that are in conflict here. I'd try to make this into a low to the ground goblin deck, since that seems to be the main theme. To do that, I'd remove the Torpor Orb Boldwyr Heavyweights combo. It's a weak combo at its best, especially with Fatal Push appearing everywhere. At worst, you turn off your own Hellrider
I'd also get rid of Reverberate and Traitorous Blood. While they're both powerful effects, they aren't at their best in a goblin deck.
That gives us 11 free slots to work with. To start, add another Goblin Wardriver. The card is great. Next, let's add 4 Goblin Piledriver ($2 each). To finish out the super aggressive 2 drops, lets add 4 Goblin Bushwhacker.
Let's stop and look at the deck with these changes. What is the deck trying to do? Make lots of goblins, buff them up, then deal lots of damage. Simple enough. To finish this strategy up, let's add a bit more reach (burn spells), a few more turn 1 plays, and cut cards that work better in a slower game. Boggart Shenanigans and Curse of Stalked Prey are both too slow for our deck now, so let's cut them. We should also be at 20 lands; this will give us the best chance of getting a 2 or 3 land hand, which is important, since a 1 or 4+ land is a mulligan 99% of the time with this deck. We also need to have RR on turn 2, so colorless lands are risky. Because of this, lets cut 2 Haunted Fengraf. We now have cut 17 cards and added 9 cards, so 8 open slots. I would look this list and pick 1 card. I think your best budget option is Frenzied Goblin. If you want to spend money, you can upgrade to Goblin Guide, but I don't think it's worth it. Finally, let's add 4 Lightning Bolt to give the deck some extra reach and a way to remove problem creatures.

Some cards you could consider Avatar of Slaughter, Skin Invasion Flip, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Akroan Horse, Tempt with Vengeance, Death by Dragons, and if you want to get real crazy Boldwyr Heavyweights.

Boldwyr Heavyweights would be an interesting choice; they'd go get their best creature, and you'd just take it and hit them with it.

This looks like the type of deck that want to sow some chaos and doesn't mind your opponents having creatures, here is some tools that I think you may be interested in Death by Dragons, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Hunted Dragon, Insurrection, and Tempt with Vengeance.
My personal favorite is Hunted Dragon, a 6/6 flying haste for 5! Yes please! Who cares about the 2/2s when you make 3/3s when they come after you?

I would consider adding more creatures maybe bring the creature count to somewhere between 30-35 i know they are all big beefies with high cast costs. But I feel like with the ramp you have it cant hurt. plus the idea is to have good things for mayael to dig for. I would start with Armada Wurm and maybe Craterhoof Behemoth Aegis Angel. something like Arborback Stomper will help get some life for free if you need it. Avatar of Slaughter for the game ending hit. Boldwyr Heavyweights because you should have the biggest creatures at the table and its a 2 for 1. Bringer of the Green Dawn/Bringer of the Red Dawn because reasons Council Guardian Deathcoil Wurm doesnt mind being blocked lol. Dragonlair Spider is great for blocking and creature racing. Enlisted Wurm though im not sure how cascade works with mayael. Garruk's Horde just seems natural in here as does Gladehart Cavalry. Living Inferno fight clubs all by its self as does Nessian Wilds Ravager. um Panglacial Wurm because i dare you to cast it from your library. i will scoop right then. Primeval Protector will be almost free even if its in your hand. Scourge of the Throne i mean your deck loves attacking why not do it again? Siege Behemoth,Tornado Elemental,wolfpack and Thorn Elemental because we want to just do straight damage to people. Stalking Vengeance will make people think twice about clearing the board. Tyrant of Discord sounds awesome. Vagrant Plowbeasts u know why. Vigordoesnt have time for anybodys shit. Windbrisk Raptor id like to see some lifelink in this deck because it has the potential to pump out assloads of damage per turn. there were a ton of creatures i omitted which had cycling and in hindsight they may be good but im sure you can do a search for them but if you ever find your hand flooded with creatures it might be a good out. also one last thing since i love this card Blade of Selves I didnt price anything out because I didnt feel like it since you could buy any of these one at a time and slowly build the deck into something that you wanted.

I've made a deck based on that idea some time ago. Feel free to check:

The idea is to use cards like: Trickbind, Sundial of the Infinite, Torpor Orb, Disallow, Voidslime and Hushwing Gryff to counter the EtB triggers and cast your massive creatures. There is also the option to use Fling and Rite of Consumption for cards that have upkeep triggers.
Currently this is the list of cheap big creatures with big drawbacks for modern:
Vexing Devil, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Desecration Demon, Desecration Elemental, Dust Elemental, Eater of Days, Leveler, Hunted Phantasm, Hunted Horror, Hunted Troll, Hunted Wumpus, Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu, Inverter of Truth, Nova Chaser, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Primeval Force, Sky Swallower.
