You can never go wrong with Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip for werewolves. You can also run Rubblehulk for combat tricks or a beat-stick. Clan Defiance can be some answers to your opp's questions. Lastly, Borborygmos is a great addition.

Rosheen feels out of place for only Clan Defiance. Birds of Paradise would probably be a better choice overall.

Finding a way to get 3 more lands for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would help late game a lot.

Interesting ramp deck, but I have some things to point out. I feel like Clan Defiance should be moved to sideboard, same for Retreat to Kazandu. They are good for certain matchups, but not always. Also, maybe up the number of lands to 24, especially if you want to play Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and big mana cost creatures. Garruk Wildspeaker would almost guarantee your ramp for sure instead of Garruk, Primal Hunter. Maybe a one of. Also, maybe play more copies of Tormenting Voice to trigger the Spell Mastery of Nissa's Pilgrimage. Furthermore, be wary that Zendikar Resurgent is super costly for Modern, but can still be played. Cryptolith Rite would be good to ramp faster too, especially if you want to cast big creatures it allows you to use your creatures on board to ramp.

Otherwise, not too bad for a first deck!

Innistrad Wolves and Zombies got me back into Magic the 2nd time around. I love'em

Personally I think that unless you add Instants/Sorceries like Primal Bellow, Brute Force, Prey Upon ...quick hits on a TARGET... To allow you to exploit the Silverfur Partisan I'd drop him to a 2-of or out.... if your opponent doesn't hit them..... No bonus's to your friends??? Even if they do hit the Wolf it's a Dreadbore not a Black Sun's Zenith or something, it's a wolf and should be 5/5 6/6... 25/25 in no time. I do love that card though.

And seeing that I'm being selfish a bit.... help your buddies or get out.... the Timberpack Wolf I really am not a fan of unless you get him out there unexpectedly or something Savage Summoning, Descendants' Path (Path is awesome with the wolves BTW) ...again it is nice card (timberpack), but it just not helping them all..... for that 1G, I'd go Mayor of Avabruck  Flip.

Parallel Lives + Garruk Relentless + Mayor of Avabruck all work nicely in a wolf deck if you want a "Pack of Wolves" Token deck???

One thing I loved with GRUUL Wolves..... RG Instants and Sorceries.... At least for your sideboard, if your bro there changes decks on ya. Signal the Clans (awesome card for 2 CMC), or Ground Assault , Clan Defiance.

And Finally a must...... @ 1 or 2 of's... Full Moon's Rise. TRAMPLE..... and a couple other perks. for 2 CMC........... get 1 in there. It's a damn wolf deck! LOL.

A quick update! Evolutionary Leap, Clan Defiance, Wolf of Devil's Breach, Fertilid, Akoum Stonewaker, Maze Behemoth, Cyclops of Eternal Fury, and Oak Street Innkeeper have all been removed. It was hard to get rid of a couple as they have proven useful in past games. However, I feel like I have replaced them with much stronger and more efficient cards: Liege of the Tangle, Siege Behemoth, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, Vigor, War Elemental, Asceticism, Burgeoning, and Soulblast. I played 6 games tonight and won 5! Hopefully this deck will remain versatile and now be even more deadly! Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback.

I included Taurean Mauler in the deck to have more dragons for dragon-dependent cards like Scaleguard Sentinels and Draconic Roar.
And also to fill the 3-drop slot to smooth out the mana-curve in the deck.It also has synergy with Dragonlord's Servant and can be "protected" by Thunderbreak Regent's ability.

The only alternative I see for it is Chameleon Colossus which is good but costs more mana, should go with it instead ?

The deck is all about the dragons as the top-end so Dragonlord's Servant seems to fill the ramp/cost-reduction role nicely while providing an ok-body as well which is why it seems better than more enchantments here and a better blocker (can block a 2/1) than Voyaging Satyr/Sakura-Tribe Elder.
It can also prove useful if I manage to "Ultimate" Garruk Wildspeaker.

If I to include L.Bolt in the main what should I take out ? Maybe Farseek ?

Should I include Harmonize in the maindeck ?
Sometimes I have more mana than things to cast and it can help with that.

About the sideboard:

  1. Flame Slash can kill Restoration Angel, Thought-Knot Seer, Loxodon Smiter, Wilt-Leaf Liege and 3/4 Goyf which is not bad and costing less mana seems reasonable.

  2. I like the flexibility (killing different cmc permanents) and the option of instant-speed activation of Ratchet Bomb.
    Engineered Explosives is good too but rather limited in a 2-color deck.
    Would Clan Defiance be a good sb option ? I like the potential to hit 2 creatures+the opponent with it ?

Nice Wort deck! I have a couple of suggestions that may help:

Clan Defiance is a great "X" burn spell that can hit multiple targets.

Oracle of Mul Daya can ramp you up really quick. I know it's a pricey card. If you're going to splurge, I say go for that one! No harm at all in using both this card and Courser of Kruphix which you already have.

Guttersnipe is great in sorcery/instant heavy decks like yours. He can help burn your opponents fast.

Please feel free to check out my deck, Wort: Mother of Landfall, and see if it's helpful.
