Stonehewer Giant Discussion
3 days ago
Wiizy: Indeed, that's true! You're definitely not wrong, but there are a number of creatures in this deck that I don't have much interest in stacking equipment on that are still worth protecting (Mother of Runes, Bastion Protector, etcetera).
Having the ability to give haste for no additional mana in a White deck is quite valuable with things like Giver of Runes or Stonehewer Giant as well. The Shroud part of Lightning Greaves can definitely be annoying at times, but they still draw me a card, grant haste and equip for zero. In my mind the Greaves are just too useful to not include. =)

jakeyuki12 - thanks for the comment! Thank you also for the compliments! As far as card advantage, I guess Skullclamp and Mentor of the Meek are considerations, but this isn’t necessarily token based. does have tutors, but they are situational. Some additions I was thinking of were Cartographer's Hawk, Stoneforge Mystic, Kor Cartographer, Enlightened Tutor, and Stonehewer Giant.
Did you have specific suggestions?
For the 4 cmc slot, were you saying I should go higher or lower? Most of the decks I play hover around the 3.0-4.0 range, so I naturally gravitate towards 4 cmc cards.
Thanks again for your comment!

@WesomeNight thanks for commenting!
Luminous Broodmoth is currently in testing. I haven't resolved it enough times to see if it plays well or not. There are a few cards I'm trying out in that 4-drop creature slot, the moth is just the current one.
This deck isn't an equipment focused deck, so I only run the equipment that produce advantage (card or mana) or act as removal. And Lightning Greaves, because it's good (protection and haste!). If it were an equipment focused deck then a lot of your suggestions would be excellent, and I would change a lot of things.
It's rather ironic that you bring up Godo, Bandit Warlord because I actually just recently cut him from the deck. I couldn't disagree more with your opinion that Godo > Stonehewer Giant. The giant can win a game practically by itself, without Helm of the Host (which I cut because I got bored of it) Godo has never done that for me. Maybe if it was a more equipment-focused deck then Godo would be a lot better, but it's not. The 6-drop slot is rather crowded, and that CMC has to be impactful- after all, Aurelia is also at that CMC. I just never felt Godo being super impactful when I played him at six, that's why I decided to replace him with Fiendish Duo.
Anyways, I will be testing the 4-CMC slot to see if the moth is good enough. Other 4-cmc solid creatures would be appreciated. They have to be on the same power level as the other 4-cmc creatures you see in the list (Hero, Aurelia, Iroas).

Hello! Here a Rafiq player playing in a casual meta. I'm just rebuilding my deck after having it stolen (at least I got to play my new Noble Hierarch beforehand).
I'm having a horrible time (again) choosing a path for this deck. My meta is slower and much more casual, so I won't be including many control elements in your list. I find myself going toward a pseudo-voltron (cuz you know, Rafiq) deck combined with enchantments. Being Brago, King Eternal and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician my go-to creatures for the elements of control I need. What is your opinion on Stonehewer Giant? Have you considered the new Staggering Insight or Trailblazer's Boots?
My current decklist is under "maintenance" with 87 cards, but I'll leave you the link for it so you can check it out and comment on it. I'll happily take your advice! https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-08-19-edh-bant/

Well, we played the challenge. The other decks were themed on the following movies: Jurassic Park, Sharknado, & Dune. This was by far the weakest deck, but also the most accurately represented. It won the first game (because it was so weak no one bothered attacking me, lol) and lost the second match.
mckayeaston - I decided Stonehewer Giant was a good fit for Fezzik, as he throws a rock at Westley. Also useful in getting Inigo Sword of Fire and Ice. I played with Albino Troll, having alerted my friends it was not Modern legal (but also not really a threat). I never even got it in my hand let alone into play so it didn't matter at all. That said, I think Pale Wayfarer or Zealous Inquisitor would be good alternatives had been super important to be 100% Modern legal.
