Bow of Nylea
Legendary Enchantment Artifact
Attacking creatures you control have deathtouch.
1G, T : Choose one -- Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature; or Bow of Nylea deals 2 damage to target creature with flying; or you gain 3 life; or put up to four target cards from your graveyard on the bottom of your library in any order.

Does every creature in your deck have to be one tribe or just the majority? If the latter is true, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed would help. Winding Canyons and Vedalken Orrery could also help with flips. Bow of Nylea is also nice. Price of Glory is a bit dirty but can help keep people from casting spells on your turn. Xenagos, the Reveler and/or Domri Rade may also be nice.

I run a werewolf deck as well and have a few ideas based on my own play experience.
You need some smoother control of when your werewolves flip since that's when they're at their most deadly. Cards like the following:
Gruul colors tend to hurt bad when it comes to card draw/advantage so cards that boost that are also worth considering.
Some other cards that may be worth consideration:
Best of luck to you with your werewolves!

@DaringApprentice - Wow, thanks for all the suggestions! There was a lot to mull over. I thought about the other Theros gods when I was first putting this deck together, and they were some of the last cards I cut. It came down to Heliod, God of the Sun and Kruphix, God of Horizons working better within the deck. I'll have to revisit them now that I've played it a bunch though (cutting Soul Sculptor for sure, though I'd probably just add a land there). The artifacts for them are pretty awesome though. I definitely am leaning towards the Bow of Nylea and the Spear of Heliod.
For the others in that post, I like Sylvan Library (though it's a bit pricey $ wise), Stasis would be risky for me unless I re-outfitted to take full advantage of Derevi. Nature's Will is pretty funny; I don't remember coming across that one. I'm not sure how much I want to rely on my creatures, though. Aura Shards and Aura of Silence I never thought about putting in, mostly because I don't have too many issues destroying things if I go that route, and creatures, again, aren't something I end up utilizing very much. I like Stasis better than Rising Waters, but gotta appreciate older blue control. Darksteel Mutation will probably go in, as Song of the Dryads is one of my favorites, so doubling up would be nice. Oblivion Ring and Detention Sphere are good control options, but also limited in a sense.
For the second post, I like the Archetypes, and will probably put at least Archetype of Imagination in, even if more for a defensive use. Aegis of the Gods is a better Ivory Mask, so it's just negligence that's not in there now! Fountain Watch seemed overkill with the shroud I already have going - I had it in for a bit at the beginning while playtesting actually. Vernal Equinox scares me, but I also like the risk of using Hypergenesis, so why not? I'd be fine using the Tethered Griffin and it would make a great low cmc creature to have. Plea for Guidance is a must-have. It'll be going in for sure.
For your final, all of those are cool options, and ones I would definitely come back to if I go a more creature-focused route. By the way, Pemmin's Aura totally reminds me of Zephid's Embrace - I'm not sure which one I like better.

My initial thoughts were about Theros gods, namely, Thassa, God of the Sea, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Ephara, God of the Polis, and Karametra, God of Harvests. They can be big creatures, and have nice effects on their own. You could also look into Spear of Heliod, Bident of Thassa, and Bow of Nylea.
Enchantment cards that I found listed on https://edhrec.com/commanders/derevi-empyrial-tactician include Aura Shards, Sylvan Library, Stasis, Nature's Will, Aura of Silence, Rising Waters, Darksteel Mutation, Oblivion Ring, and Detention Sphere.

Pretty nice deck. I'd make a few adjustments though.
I'd take out 2 of the Mutagenic Growths and add Thrive. A really nice card, and works better with Hardened Scales. I'd also add 2 more hardened scales. It only costs one, plus the more counters the better.
Some removal wouldn't be a bad idea in here either.

To be honest Beio53, I'm not entirely sure which way I'm planning to win with this deck. I think that that will probably be a very situational thing. I also think that this deck will be versatile in giving me different choices in how I want to beat my opponent which makes me happy because I like keeping my opponents guessing anyway. I definitely like your suggestion of Bow of Nylea, and may try to find a place for it. I'm not sure how I feel about Stensia Masquerade...... I may try to find something that gives my creatures first strike without the counters since I have no vampires in the deck.

Pariah's in the deck because of the synergy between it and my commander. Drop it on a token while Emmara is in play and I've got a powerful damage sponge. I'm also currently thinking about cutting Bow of Nylea for Make a Stand and Dual Nature for Jazal Goldmane. As soon as I get a copy of Pashiri, I'll slot her in over Rhys, but as of yet I don't have a copy.
Thanks for all the suggestions!

Looks good to me so far. If you do decided to add a sideboard, especially if you want to pump up one creature, I personally like Bow of Nylea. It gives multiple options.
