Brazen Wolves Discussion

Monkeylordz on Weenies Who Smile At Death

Hello, I came to this deck through your forum post.

I am not the best commander player, and haven't played/faced Alesha, but I like deck building. One thing I noticed is a lack of board wipes, which I think all decks should have. There will always be a point where you won't be winning, and a board wipe can clear the path and give you the board priority. However, you don't need that many. Three should suffice, but more isn't bad either.

Boards wipes I have in mind:

You want more mana rocks. You have Sol Ring and two others, but that won't cut it, especially in a 3-colored deck. I suggest around 10 mana rocks. Here is my list:

You can of course choose whatever you want, these are just some suggestions for you to take.

Card draw. My favorite thing to do in EDH is draw cards. While white and red struggle with drawing cards, black has no problem.

Random Cards that come to mind:

  • Darksteel Plate. It allows your commander to attack even if your opponent has big blockers.

  • Bojuka Bog. Graveyard Hate with small opportunity cost.

  • Raving Dead. Can dish out a lot of damage, and when it dies, you bring it back.

  • Graveblade Marauder. Hits hard, especially because you stock your yard.

  • Return to Dust. You need artifact/enchantment hate in commander. There are too many broken things that a board full of creatures cannot solve. Luckily, there is also great removal for those things.

  • Increasing Ambition. This tutor is good because it essentially tutors 3 times in one card.

  • Crypt Ghast. Staple in any black deck. It ramps you, and even has extort. (and 2 power)

  • Aegis of the Gods. A little protection is always nice. You never know when the next Comet Storm is going to come.

  • Panharmonicon. My favorite card in standard right now. Actually, don't add this one, because you cannot effectively capitalize on it's ability to warrant using a card slot. However, if your add more ETB effects, the power of this card increases exponentially!

  • Ashnod's Altar or some other sac outlet. This allows you to sac the creature for utility, and then bring it back. Have a Priest of the Blood Rite sitting around? Sac it, reanimate it, and then sac it again! Useful for ETB creatures and also locked down creatures (Arrest, etc.).

With every added card, you have to cut a card. Cards I suggest cutting are low-impact cards. Commander is often a game of value, and Alesha assists you greatly in doing so. However, Brazen Wolves is likely not going to do anything impactful. You would much rather have something like Taurean Mauler, which is just better. Remember: Everyone has 40 life, so games tend to go long. The best cards are cards that scale as the game goes on. I will list cards that I don't think are impactful enough, but that is just my opinion. If your like using a card, or don't have better cards, you can keep it.

  • Fervent Cathar

  • Grey Merchant of Asphodel. Not enough black mana symbols. If your deck changes to add more, you can add this back in. It is pretty good, but only with support.

  • War-Name Aspirant

  • Brazen Wolves

  • Some equipment. You don't need that many equipments without equipment support. (However, you could add equipment support, like Sram, Senior Edificer)

  • Azorius Justiciar. Just use removal instead. Use Alesha to get back something else.

  • Scrapper Champion. A 3/3 double striker may sound good, but in commander, it doesn't do as much as you expect.

  • Ukud Cobra. Not terrible, but doesn't do anything either. It just sits waiting to block, then dies to a board wipe.

  • Merciless Eternal. 3 mana and discarding a card is too high a cost for just +2/+2. Even if it puts something in your graveyard, why didn't you use Tormenting Voice and draw two instead?

That's it for my comment! I hope I helped you improve your deck, and remember: commander is about creating a custom deck. Make it how you and you playgroup enjoy playing.

I think Silverfur Partisan should def be a 4 of since it synergizes so well with your creatures.

I think some of the enchantment are either unnecessary or can be upgraded to enchantments that synergize with your deck. I would drop the Blood Mist, Gruul War Chant, and Gift of Paradise for stuff like Howlpack Resurgence and Full Moon's Rise.

Naturalize is also probably pretty weak here and could be replaced. Creatures like Solitary Hunter  Flip, Brazen Wolves, Smoldering Werewolf  Flip, and Thornhide Wolves can be upgraded as well.

Here are some cards that are budget friendly I would find room for:

Immerwolf

Lightning Strike

Ulrich's Kindred

Howlpack Resurgence

Full Moon's Rise

Breakneck Rider  Flip/Neck Breaker  Flip

Duskwatch Recruiter/Krallenhorde Howler  Flip

Cult of the Waxing Moon

Instigator Gang/Wildblood Pack  Flip

For options that are above budget:

Huntmaster of the Fells/Ravager of the Fells  Flip

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip/Howlpack Alpha  Flip

Lightning Bolt

I like the direction this deck is heading!! I would honestly ditch Brazen Wolves tho, the just... never really seem to work like they should. You've got a good enough average cmc that I think more Assembled Alphas would be perfectly acceptable. Don't forget those Eldrazi werewolves either, they can be assholes. +1

Wino Thanks for your suggestions. I figured you were probably right with Hungry Flames simply because that much removal might not always be necessary and counter spells might be a bit better to balance things out in the main board. I also replaced one Brazen Wolves with a Scrapheap Scrounger. The reason I only did one though is because blockers are good as I can protect my planeswalkers from creature attacks, but the Yahenni-Scrapheap combination could use a bit more to keep it going. I'm looking to put in Fatal Push but I'm not sure if it's significantly better than anything else that's already in the deck

Interesting idea put together Chandra Tezzeret and Saheeli! But I think that Hungry Flames is probably good for side... try something like Negate that's because you have much counters that are very good.. also if I were you I will replace 2 Brazen Wolves with 2 Scrapheap Scrounger that is better because can work well with Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Consider also Fatal Push that is a fast removal. Hope my suggestions helps you!

I play a wolf deck regularly and I would say that Immerwolf, Pyreheart Wolf, Overrun, and Moonmist are all essentials in this type of deck to ensure that the rush goes to plan as wolves don't have much late game potential. Also consider Ember-Eye Wolf and Brazen Wolves they are solid attackers in a wolf deck. Finally if you have one Mayor of Avabruck  Flip is always useful.

First off, congratulations on your first deck!

Secondly, since you are playing primarily red and green I would suggest playing some taplands in those colors. For example, Rugged Highlands or Timber Gorge.

Since you are playing several landfall cards, I would also suggest more ramp spells like Explosive Vegetation, Nissa's Pilgrimage, and Blighted Woodland. Also, Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves are faster than Golden Hind.

I would suggest increasing the numbers of several cards, specifically Genesis Hydra, Oran-Rief Hydra, and Savage Ventmaw.

I would also suggest cutting the cards that don't fit the ramp and landfall theme very well, like Gaea's Blessing, Pacifism, Watcher in the Web, Highland Game, Briarhorn, Jaddi Lifestrider, Titanic Growth, Tread Upon, Enduring Victory, and Brazen Wolves.

Yeah, I've actually already replaced Liberating Combustion with 2 more Flame Lash. But I've been wanting to put something in like Burn from Within or Ravaging Blaze in. To give me way more options late game! 4 damage from lash is good, but if I have 10 mana open and only 1 card in hand, that card being something like Burn from Within I could really do some damage!

I've mainly been using Spontaneous Artist to set up Dragon-Style Twins and Brazen Wolves with haste! But I've been wanting to get rid of most of my creatures without haste for ones that do have it! I would like to keep Dragon-Style Twins though. All creatures having haste will speed it up.

I'm amazed at that Avaricious Dragon. That would be perfect! Too many times I've been sitting there late game with no cards in hand, all my mana open, like COME ON this next draw is gonna be what I need! Draw..... It's a mountain! Haha a
