Howl of the Night Pack Discussion
1 week ago
So, I've been taking in all of these suggestions and trying to narrow things down as far as which cards I'd like in the deck. So, these are the cards I'm considering, how much of each, and why. From there, maybe you guys can help me narrow things down..?
2 Wren's Run Packmaster and 2 Howl of the Night Pack has been a good combo, allowing me to get a lot of deathtouch creatures to block with, or to to discourage enemies from attacking while I build up my elves.
2 Jagged-Scar Archers gets even better with more elves on the field. It'd be a great (and so far, only) defense against any flying, able to deal damage without taking any if needed.
2 Overwhelming Stampede. This. This has actually won me the game many times, giving all of my creatures a great temporary buff and trample, allowing my damage to actually go through.
4 Elvish Archdruid can give me a lot of mana to work with, with an added buff to all elves as well!
2 Ambush Commander pairs greatly with a lot of cards, getting a lot more tokens onto the field. The only 'danger' of this card is the enemy having a board wipe or taking out the lands otherwise, which has happened to me once or twice.
2 Wellwisher. One game, I had two of these out and reached about 100+ life. That was pretty fun.
2 Bramblewood Paragon gives a lot of creatures a good buff, as well as the all-important trample condition.
3 Elvish Promenade gives me a lot of tokens to work with, which helps for both blocking and building things up.
3 Elvish Mystic, 3 Llanowar Elves, and 2 Heritage Druid help greatly with accquiring mana; but with 4 Elvish Archdruid, I don't want too much of these cards, otherwise I'll have more than I need and less cards to actually cast from these guys.
2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader could provide me with both a nice buff and an easy way to regenerate creatures. Great card all-in-all for the cost.
2 Dwynen's Elite gets me another token when casting it. Pretty good, but a lot of other things also give me more tokens as well.
3 Elvish Visionary helps me with card draw, giving me a little more to work with.
Eladamri, Lord of Leaves is a great card, but it seems a little too expensive for my taste, heh.
So, this is my thought process so far as I try to narrow everything down. Thoughts, if any..?

Your deck has 2 of my absolute favourite cards in, Master of the Wild Hunt and Howl of the Night Pack, I think it's awesome so you get a +1 from me! My deck uses both of those cards but is way more passive, Howl of the Wild Hunt

Personally this gets a +1 from me, a fellow fan of mono-green! Howl of the Night Pack has to do with the number of Forests you have, so how I would do it is an emphasis on ramp and things based on number of Forests/Lands, with Wolf tribal to hold them back until you can set it up.But I'm not the most knowledgeable expert, wait to see what other people tell you. Great deck so far, I'm sure you'll make many more! :)

As the previous poster suggests, it might be worthwhile to use token creatures to power up Ezuri very quickly. There are a couple options that seem most applicable to your deck, including:- Avenger of Zendikar- Chasm Skulker- Hangarback Walker- Hooded Hydra
Other options might include, to name a few: Acorn Harvest, AEther Mutation, Animation Module, Awakening Zone, Beacon of Creation, Caller of the Claw, Howl of the Night Pack, Homarid Spawning Bed, Genesis Chamber, Grizzly Fate, Kessig Cagebreakers, Master of Waves, Rise from the Tides, Sprout Swarm, Wolfbriar Elemental, Snake Basket, Sekki, Seasons' Guide.
These are mostly was to dump tokens into play en masse to most quickly generate experience from Ezuri, as well as establishing board presence more quickly.
Cool deck, though!

I have a few suggestions but a lot of them are high mc cards, they might be worth a thought though :D.
Raised by Wolves for some more tokens. Feed the Pack Combos well with anything that can increase a creatures power. Howl of the Night Pack for a lotta wolves if you ever get late game, probably wont need to consider this one but its just a pointer. Predator's Howl is good for more tokens and a lot cheaper than the others, ( Also combo's with Feed the Pack )

Over time I've shifted the deck towards a strong enchantress theme. I used to focus on things that made my lands creatures or that put a bunch of creatures into play based on my lands, but I often found it wasn't as potent as just drawing as many cards as possible. Ultimately Howl of the Night Pack is probably coming out as well, since it doesn't keep me from milling out like Beacon.
I think if I were to add a land animation spell back in, it would likely be Jolrael, Empress of Beasts.

jo_hotpocket, if I have The Great Aurora go off, flipping her is almost a certainty. Usually, I don't even consider casting here unless I have that card and can go off... preferably having a total of around 30 cards either in hand or on the battlefield. If I get an early Howl of the Night Pack it can speed up the process because permanent count gets up there faster, as well as providing some early blockers. The deck tends towards one of two things really; either I never have a chance to develop the board state enough to make casting her worth the bother, or else I am not only able to cast her, but to mill out the table (although I've whiffed once and only gotten out one other player). So, struggling to flip her is not a problem that I've typically encountered. Instead, it's been a struggle to construct a potentially winning board state in which flipping her is a certainty.
In looking through the deck, did you have any issues understanding how the deck works? Any questions or suggestions on card choices? That won't break the bank, I mean; I'd love a Vorinclex, but he's kind of expensive.

great deck idea. I would suggest to add Khalni Garden as it gives you a free plant token. Good cards to include, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Howl of the Night Pack, Craterhoof Behemoth, Avenger of Zendikar, Growing Ranks, Thragtusk, or Sprout Swarm. Also a budget doubling season you could use is Parallel Lives
