Cult of the Waxing Moon Discussion

nlidmaster on Red/Green Wolf Deck

This deck is pretty sweet, but I have some suggestions. Cult of the Waxing Moon is a really cool card, but its very slow, and in modern format werewolves you want to be as fast as possible. If I were you, I'd remove the two waxing moons and put in two more Mayor of Avabruck  Flip. Mayor is essential, as he is the only werewolf lord, and his transformed ability gives you those tokens as well. Going along with the aggressive idea, I think it's important to also have one mana cost creatures, and fortunately for us werewolf lovers, one of the best one drops is Village Messenger  Flip. I highly recommend him. As for cards to remove, I personally have never found much use with Rhonas's Monument, instead, I suggest using a non-basic land called Kessig Wolf Run. It has provided my creatures with so much power. I would also remove Mouth. The only part of it that is nice is the feed part, but that requires you to either have 6 mana to play both parts, or you have to wait a turn to use that effect. I'd remove that and just make room for some of the cards I've mentioned. As the person above mentioned, Huntmaster of the Fells is expensive, but he really pulls his weight. I really like the inclusion of Blossoming Defense. If you want some ideas, or want to make suggestions, check out my werewolf deck. It's called "just some cute puppies".

I also cut Cult of the Waxing Moon in favor for a more powerful, off-flavor card. I really like the idea of the small benefit it provides for our beasties transforming but it is only always 1 or 2 wolves for me before it dies. If it had less CMC, more relevant typing or something I would include it. Just for me, by the time I get it out I can't really capitalize on it.

Those look great JonRock!! In regards to your question, Ive cut Cult of the Waxing Moon from my deck. While Ive made transforming about as consistent as one can, I still find the card isnt around enough to get real value and so I cut it in favor of something off flavor: Urabrask the Hidden.

So I'm done altering the 10 basics that are in the deck currently, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, the Mountains turned out better than expected Werewolf Basics

So on the topic of cards, Cult of the Waxing Moon, has this card ever done anything for any of you? I keep cutting it, but then putting it back in because I dream of getting a ton of wolves and get pulled in by the Magical Christmas Land winmoreness of it.

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:


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

Domri Rade

Thanks man,

Actually i've put Waxing Moon and Cult of the Waxing Moon on the deck. But i don't think that Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip is a good fit for the deck, for he is too soft (n of cards in my hand for a 5 mana cost, can be most of times, 1 to 3). Not that i don't like the card, I use it on my Zegana deck. LoL

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

Solid points about Ulrich and his shortcomings. I totally agree with TheACTR about his "pack" flavor. I recently replaced him (Mina and Denn, Wildborn are now my general) and I actually like/appreciate Ulrich a lot more now that he's "part of the pack." He is great with others but strong on his own. He's a good card, probably worthy of being a werewolf legend, especially since even his flip itself is useful. But he can either be "part of the pack" or "alpha" and by nature, never both at once.

I think by the way they play that werewolves are kind of self-interested. They're usually not even on the same page with each other. Maybe that's why great werewolf legend does not equal great werewolf general.

Imagine if we had something similar to Cult of the Waxing Moon that gave us a tokens, bonuses, or did direct damage whenever anyone transforms. There would be no contest. And I could definitely see a strong wolf being an amazing werewolf general, like Skullcmk said. Another color couldn't hurt either.

TL;DR I think werewolves kinda need a non-werewolf general.
