Boldwyr Heavyweights Discussion

Ataraxey on Speak "friend" and Enter

After playing this deck for the first time tonight, how do you deal with the negative ETB effects of Phyrexian Dreadnought , Eater of Days and Boldwyr Heavyweights when reanimating them? From reading the rules and discussing with friends, it appears if you end the turn to negative the ETB effects, the reanimate sacrifice will trigger on the next person's turn and sacrifice the creature.

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
  • MahBoi100 on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

    Hi, everyone! I've been thinking about this for a couple of days and I'd love some opinions on this. Is there any merit in running Boldwyr Heavyweights in an aikido style list? It's a big beater for 4 mana that draws out a threat from each opponents' deck, probably much scarier than an 8/8 trampler anyway.

    My thought process here was that the Heavyweights' ability could be utilized to some benefit, either by escalating tension between other players, making them waste their removal on each other, or just increasing the opponents' combat strength, and through that, also the efficiency of your aikido spells. It being a relatively unimpressive 8/8 compared to the impactful creatures your opponents are getting could be played to a strength, I believe.

    There are obvious problems in the fact that you don't control what the opponent finds. If they find something you can't deal with or just directly enable them to win, you're boned. In addition, despite being quite cheap for it's body, it still costs 4 mana, which does put a strain on your ability to respond to the immediate threats as well as any other obstacles that emerge before your next turn.

    I've been told Boldwyr Heavyweights is a meme card since it was printed, but I wish to believe it's ability holds at least some potential. Any thoughts? :)

    Lightning Berserker seems better than Glitterfang . In a pinch you could play it normally and not be forced to return it to your hand. Kher Keep is legendary. With only 20 lands, getting 2 of them would set you back. Maybe swap 2 of em for 2 more Mountains. I'm not sure if Brand is worth it in this deck since most of the stuff you trade away gets returned or sacrificed?

    Saltskitter is similar to Norin the Wary .

    Faerie Artisans and/or Boldwyr Heavyweights would make things more chaotic. You probably wouldn't win with them, but they might be fun anyway.

    This looks like a blast to play! Do you find yourself running out of steam in the late game or wishing you are drawing more?

    Your deck reminds me of my Xantcha, Sleeper Agent deck that allows me to get pretty political and I love the idea of donating creatures. Also, cool find with Boldwyr Heavyweights . Never heard of it and can't wait to work it in a deck.

    about death by karona, absolutely it happens if you aren't careful lol. i usually only play karona if i'm basically doing nothing in the game, or have a way to make her not attack me.

    as for the extreme group hug and letting people cheat things out ( Braids, Conjurer Adept , Boldwyr Heavyweights , Hunted Wumpus , etc.) i think those could be a lot of fun and bring a bunch of chaos to the table. with this list, though, i kinda like the game going a bit slower and not exploding things too much. however, it would definitely be worth a try if you were planning on building a version of this deck yourself. i'd also recommend trying out the global ramp cards ( Mana Flare , Heartbeat of Spring , Dictate of Karametra etc.) if you were going that route

    yooo this is just the kind of chaos-hug I want to see!

    I've been sitting on a Karona, but I didn't know what to do with her... like, have you ever put her down and the table decides to name "Avatar" and 3-shot someone(you)?

    Is the enchantress theme doing what you want? I'm thinking about more creature stuff. Random things like Boldwyr Heavyweights and the Hunted series seem fun.

    Endless Whispers ?

    Spawnbroker .

    Vedalken Plotter .

    Oh Wild Research .

    If you have lands worth playing, Pir's Whim feels good.

    Axis of Mortality ? Cruel Entertainment ?

    Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis , Athreos, God of Passage

    Intimidate doesn't work with Karona... Vow of Flight or Vow of Wildness ?

    Missing Akroma, Angel of Wrath for the lore flex.
