Ancient Grudge Discussion

Two Oxidize might be worth running over two Ancient Grudge so you can play it out of your hand if need be. In addition, the anti-regeneration effect is relevant against some kinds of Affinity, as well as a couple other decks.

Now that I look at it, what are your thoughts on changing the Ancient Grudge to a 3rd Kolaghan's Command? They both hit artifacts, and the trade off would be "better against artifacts" for a better generalist card.

Sorry I'm just now getting to your question about sideboarding!
I'm not sure on sideboarding for this deck, as it's much more Aggro than Ponza (which is my normal RG deck). But here are a few cards you may want to playtest:
- UW Control: I like Blood Moon, Choke, and Thrun, the Last Troll, in that order. I think you'll find any of those are better than Bow of Nylea vs. Control. Guttural Response is probably better too.
- Humans: I just bring in as much removal as possible ... Lightning Bolt, Abrade (which can also hit their Aether Vials), Anger of the Gods, and Beast Within have been all-stars. Between your Bolts and Elementals, you may not need much else. Torpor Orb is interesting and seems like it'd REALLY mess with them. Watch out though, since it will also mess with your Primal Forcemage.
- Burn: I prefer lifegain effects ... stuff like Dragon's Claw, Scavenging Ooze (which also doubles as Graveyard hate), and Kitchen Finks.
- Mill: Bow of Nylea is good here. Or Wheel of Sun and Moon (which also doubles as Graveyard hate), if the deck decomes a real problem ...
- Light removal: I don't really worry about it tbh ... I'd personally rather use the slot for an extra threat.
Also, though these aren't really part of your meta atm, here are a few more thoughts:
- Graveyard: I like Scavenging Ooze (great, but slow), Relic of Progenitus (good), and Grafdigger's Cage (stops Collected Company too). Tormod's Crypt (fast but very narrow) and Wheel of Sun and Moon are options as well.
- Artifacts: Ancient Grudge is just superb. I sometimes run Destructive Revelry (also hits Enchantments) and Beast Within (hits everything) too.
- Lands-matter (decks like Tron, Valkut, and Amulet Titan, plus most Tri-color manabases): Blood Moon.
Compared to your current sideboard, I'm not honestly sure if any of these would fit better in your deck, playstyle, or budget. But it's some things to think about at least :-)

i feel like the deck will struggle against control if they are hitting board wipes like terminus, cryptic tap, and all the generic control BS sadly i dont know any cards that will just let you beat this Guttural Response and Savage Summoning. Changeling Berserker is interesting, a big hasty warewolf that gives you ressiliance to every single removal card but can elad to blowouts i really dont know if there is a 'i win' card, mabey some more gas like Nissa, Vital Force or Tireless Tracker but idk, you definity need somthing though

Game 1 is a sprint for Dredge, don't put ankle weights on and dilute your deck with SB cards in game 1. You're a linear aggro deck that acts like a combo deck, you don't want to react, you want to end the game before the opponent can win or react. The cards you actually lose to in MB right now are generally cards that are difficult to hedge against with Thoughtseize. Things like Terminus are never in the hand, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon only needs to resolve after being hit with Ancient Stirrings, and other boardwipes you can play through due to recursion. You should be going wide enough that most creatures/cards don't bother you with board presence. After G1, sure, side in your Thoughtseizes and removal such as Assassin's Trophy, because then you're not hedging a select amount of cards, you're answering the SB hate cards that are sure to come.
And 23 lands is about 3-4 too many, every list I've seen in the past week since the resurgence of Dredge due to the printing of Creeping Chill has run 19, and the Ghost Quarters seem out of place MB anyway (Also, the past week is relevant. Dredge has seen as many/more results in the past week than the past month. Even before that, the max I saw was 21 lands). Your deck needs to be gas and running that many lands isn't good for what is essentially an aggro deck. Life from the Loam is what fills your hand with lands to pitch to Conflagrate, running too many is going to cost you speed and consistency of hitting your Dredgers.

This looks like a really good first draft! There are a few suggestions I'd like to make.
First, I'm not sure if Riku is the best commander for this deck. He'll make tokens for all of your creatures, but none of those tokens will get to transform. That having been said, you do have a few cards, like Parallel Evolution and Parallel Lives that play well with him. But I think removing the token theme altogether will give you a more streamlined deck. Although you should always run Rite of Replication, imo. In the spirit of keeping with your Blue/Green/Red colors, I'd recommend Surrak Dragonclaw. It's most likely you'll want to win games by getting in with creature damage, and giving everything Trample is a great way to make sure you'll be able to connect your swings. Protecting your creatures from counterspells is a nice little bonus.
Werewolves are a small tribe, and don't get as much love as other tribes, but there are a few cards that you could add still. Lambholt Elder Flip, Afflicted Deserter Flip, Scorned Villager Flip, Wolfbitten Captive Flip, and Kessig Forgemaster Flip would all make welcome (not to mention inexpensive) additions. Since you're running Blue, you could also justify putting in a few more clone creatures like Altered Ego. Check out Phantasmal Image, Quicksilver Gargantuan, and, of course, Clone. There are a number of these kinds of creatures you could include if you're willing to look into them. The best part? If they enter as a copy of a transformed werewolf, if something would cause them to flip back to human, they remain in wolf form instead! Also, consider Alpha Brawl. It's very on theme, and, more importantly, it's really funny.
I'd also recommend adding some answers to your opponent's threats to your deck. You have a couple of ways of dealing with creatures, but against artifacts, token armies, and decks that rely on fliers, you might have a hard time. Check out Ancient Grudge, Vandalblast, Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Blasphemous Act as potential answers, or consider other options you might have.
Also, this is just a footnote, but I'm not quite sure what Bonus Round does for your deck? It only interacts with seven other cards in your current decklist, and of those, only three are really worth spending the extra mana on. I think it's an easy cut.

After doing a bunch of playtests where I tried to Jeskai as well, I concluded that the deck is a lot more solid as predominantly Izzet, with a tiny splash of green just because Ancient Grudge is ridiculous.
Also decided on a transformative sideboard, and brought in the Saheeli Rai infinite mill and infinite damage combos. Normally decks pulling off this combo just shoehorn the Liquimetal Coating in and try to stall until they get their combo out. With mine I can actually use the Coating while I wait, and Argent Mutation can also get the combo started.
Going Izzet also allows me to drop a few lands and add Field of Ruin for even more land control.
I am very happy with how the deck is progressing, and hope to have it in a solid enough place soon to buy it and take it to FNM!
