Hermit of the Natterknolls Discussion

DarkStarStorm on All things Wolven

You're running a lot of awkward three of cards. It's almost as if you're a bit scared to make changes to a deck, and so you're shaving off copies. For example, why are you running three copies of Moonlight Hunt and two of Rabid Bite? Hunt is STRICTLY better than Bite, in every way imaginable. Don't be afraid to drastically change the deck. You can always change it back, so don't shave copies because you're worried about "ruining" it.

Haze of Pollen: It doesn't necessarily do much. Most opponents won't commit everything to swing because of combat tricks, so this will most likely be less optimal than a simple removal spell. If Vehicles are the issue, then you can actually mainboard Dissenter's Deliverance, which is very easy to cycle away in an irrelevant scenario.

Kessig Prowler  Flip: I don't think it belongs in the deck...at all. Your early game is fine, but the lategame of this deck is fairly weak. Cut this ENTIRELY in favor of the likes of Breakneck Rider  Flip, Geier Reach Bandit  Flip, or sideboard Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip/Silverfur Partisan (against control). In other words, there are better werewolves that do better things that will make your deck better in the lategame. Finally, I'd like to encourage you to pick up at least 4 duel lands that aren't Evolving Wilds. Reveal lands or cycling lands will improve the deck greatly.

OK this deck needs a lot of tweaks to get it to work.

These are some of the issues:

This deck has possibilities, that's for sure. It just needs to be more consistent.

Thanks so much for the feedback!

I am actually running 3x Tireless Tracker in the main, and I am thinking about what to cut for the fourth in the board. My reason for the Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip is that it either draws me a card from them killing it at instant speed, buys me a turn from them tapping out to kill it on their turn, or turns into a continuous card advantage and tempo engine in a similar way to Censor in that it forces the opponent to play around it. When it comes down to it, I just like having access to both.

When it comes to Chandra, Torch of Defiance, I'm not really sure in what way she is actually better than Ob Nixilis Reignited. If you could explain your reasoning I would happily oblige. This deck did actually use to run a few Chandras in the main a bit ago, but they were cut. I just wasn't really impressed with her performance at the time. Again though, if you don't mind explaining your thought process, I would love to hear it. She may just be a lot better now!

what about Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip for any control deck matchup?

clayperce Nice suggestion.

I'm considering Sixth Sense for card draw.

It doesn't work with Silverfur Partisan, but trampling wolves or Shrill Howler should provide repeated card draw.

And against control, I'd side in Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip. I've not tested this since so few of my mates play control decks!

Tireless Tracker is a MUCH more effective card advantage engine than Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip against control since it at least guarantees you a card in the face of immediate removal, and at best spirals out of control quickly. I'd also suggest Chandra, Torch of Defiance > Ob Nixilis Reignited, but she's a little pricey and Ob nix is a fine budget-er option.

DanteBeleren I do definitely want to stick with the (were)wolf theme, as setting up a situation where my opponents really don't want to play any spells, and I'm content to just smash them with werewolves, or Helix Pinnacle as much as I like.

If I'm narrowing down what wolves I really want, then I suppose I have:

Aggressiveness: Wolfbitten Captive  Flip, Reckless Waif  Flip, Village Messenger  Flip, and Kessig Prowler  Flip

Spell Punishment: Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip, (which combos nicely with Lambholt Elder  Flip and Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip)

Synergy stuff: Immerwolf, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, Instigator Gang  Flip, Kruin Outlaw  Flip, Geier Reach Bandit  Flip, and Spirit of the Hunt, Silverfur Partisan

Utility: Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Daybreak Ranger  Flip, Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip, Scorned Villager  Flip.

Also Wolfir Silverheart because an 8/8 and at the least a 5/5 for 5 mana seems pretty great.

I think those are the wolves that I really like, and I think they'll work well together, along with some other stuff. Ulrich isn't on that list because he's gonna be the commander.

This is ending abruptly now because I need to go sleep.

That really depends on how you wanna play the deck. Typically when I go for theme decks, I focus on the creatures being in that theme and cutting the rest. Relaying on the rest of your deck to support your theme (good or bad) isn't the worst thing to do. Since you're playing Gruul I would go for 25-30 creatures (including general) with 32-35 lands depending on how much ramp/rocks you end up running. Of your creatures, if you end up going with 30, try for ~25-5 (were)wolf-support average.

Something I always want to make sure people understand, this is you deck. If you disagree with any suggestions, and/or feel a card is terrible or fully deserves to be in the deck, by all means do as you see fit.

Personally I would go with the following creature base:

  • Eternal Witness
  • Nylea, God of the Hunt
  • Purphoros, God of the Forge
  • Xenagos, God of Revels
  • Stonebrow, Krosan Hero: This was my original WW general before Shadows over Innestrad came out, so more sentiment than anything lol
