Hey @luxzora, did you upload your wolf deck yet?
We both built cat decks for our significant others, I built rats and he built wolves. We're gonna have an epic animal showdown
Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves is also an elf; so adding in some elf synergy might help fill some of the gaps

I'd definitely have Thrun in this deck but he's just a bit pricey. Not that bad though compared to a lot of expensive cards, about $7. What's your opinion on Asceticism (Which I have 2 of laying around), Dryad Sophisticate , Predator Ooze & Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (Which I already have one)? Also, I cant believe I forgot about Dryad Militant. She's going to be great especially against storm.

While I don't think Experimental Frenzy necessarily changed Affinity, I do think it is one of the best card for the slot. There have been times in Modern when the format was slow enough for Etched Champion , but these days it's very fast. The red enchantment functions better in Affinity than any other deck, and it doesn't hurt that, between Mox Opal and Springleaf Drum , Affinity is capable of casting Frenzy on Turn 3 or even Turn 2, leading to some truly nasty starts.
On that note, I haven't playtested it enough to make it my main grind at FNM, and I currently grind Green Tron, which I'll try to post this weekend!

As I started to run more punishing cards, I slowly phased out the cards that also gave me Tokens. Sylvan Offering is certainly great for giving others Tokens, but I wanted to take less damage from my own Incite Rebellion and whatnot.
I ran Disrupt Decorum for a long while, but eventually cut it for how long it'd end up sitting in my hand. It might be that I spent too much time waiting for an opportune moment, or maybe it's just not as good with Thantis in your Command zone.
Assault Suit is kinda gimmicky. I understand the idea behind it, but it's quite the mana investment to donate Thantis around the table. This ended up being one of my first cuts.
I could see Mirage Mirror being a good addition. You could certainly run it if you want to.

Thrun, the Last Troll was a card a that used to be fairly popular in the sideboard since it's so good vs control, but it fell out of favor when blue control was kinda absent from the meta for some time. Control has resurfaced recently, but the problem is a lot of them use cards like Terminus, Settle the Wreckage, and Wrath of God - all 3 of which still get rid of your Thrun and he can't be saved by regeneration. He's still worth consideration, though, esp if you are tuning for a local meta which may be a little different than the professional or mtgo meta.
