tasuman I'd like to run another Bristling Hydra or two in the sideboard for situations where I need another hexproof beater. But I gotta have my whales so I'm running 3 Long-Finned Skywhales with one more in the sideboard. As far as the HUGE creatures, I really only want to draw one per game as a closer, either the Aethersquall Ancient or the Aetherwind Basker. They cost a lot and I don't want to end up with multiples in hand. I have a second Aethersquall in the sideboard for when going against go-wide/token decks. But essentially these are the finishers that I want to build up to playing and then hopefully win shortly after dropping one. The Aethertide Whale is cool cause he's a flying whale that I can avoid removal by returning to hand, but he really isn't a bomb otherwise, so I do not want to run more than 2 of it.
Another benefit to running all the little dudes with the Aethersquall Ancient is that I can bounce all other creatures and then play them out again next turn to build back energy quickly for another wipe.
If you were going to build this deck, how many of the fatties would you run and why?

This deck would definitely benefit from consistency.
Why cards like Long-Finned Skywhale when better options exist for example?

I'm not sure what the 7 mana flying whale is. The only other whale I could find in the search is Long-Finned Skywhale.
Thanks for the comment!

I went 3-1 at the pre-release playing U/B.
I won every game I hit Yahenni, Undying Partisan but that makes sense.
Also Untethered Express could have been rare. I only got to use it once but it got out of hand quick.
And it may be from last set but Long-Finned Skywhale just wins games.
