Kessig Prowler Discussion

I'd throw in some Pelt Collector or Experiment One depending on your definition of budget. You've got a bunch of 1 drops, but only 3 creatures to play on turn 1 in an aggro deck, which slows you down a lot if you aren't running elves. If you do add them, Avatar of the Resolute would be a good addition if it's in your budget. Kessig Prowler Flip or the mana dork elves would be the cheaper option and still speed you up. Barkhide Troll is a strict upgrade to Kalonian Tusker for the same price. Great Sable Stag is a pretty good anti control card for your sideboard, since their gameplan is to counter and kill everything you play. Like the deck overall.

A 60-card deck like this will definitely want 22 - 24 lands. Currently, every one of your lands come into play tapped - this is something you want to minimize, since you will always be one turn behind mana-wise. I'd aim for 15 Forests, 4 Plains and 4 Blossoming Sands.
You'll also want to lower the curve. I wouldn't feel any need to run Caged Sun in a deck like this: once you have six mana, you can play any of your cards very comfortably, so doubling your mana isn't such a big deal. Meanwhile, there are much cheaper ways to give your creatures all +1/+1. Arlinn, Voice of the Pack is likewise somewhat underwhelming for six mana. You'll probably want some one-mana creatures in there, and I'd recommend things like Kessig Prowler Flip, Wolfbitten Captive Flip and/or Young Wolf . Hopefully this helps smooth things out!

Also, keep in mind everything I say comes from a "Spike" standpoint. A competitive standpoint. I, myself made no budget considerations when making my post, but I understand most people are not "spikes". However, modern Mono-Green Stompy IS, itself, considered a budget list (in fact, it's the only modern deck I own in paper - I don't own many paper decks anymore). Also, the Stompy video I linked is made as a budget-friendly deck spotlight (even though it is pretty much the full-on stompy list). Oh yea, one other thing. Ignore that 1 Kessig Prowler Flip in his list. I have no idea why he put that in, honestly. I believe there are better choices that are still relatively cheap ( Scavenging Ooze , for one).

What did you most recently update? Weren't there Kessig Prowler Flips in the main deck before? Sorry, haven't seen an update in 2019 yet, but noticed it changed. I liked the prior decklist and hadn't gotten a chance to build it yet. I'm curious what got switched out and why. Sorry if I missed something you wrote somewhere already.

Hello! First, well done up there. I have been running werewolves for a while now, and this proposal is very interesting. In all honesty I thought of this same mechanic myself, but the price on
Collected Company prevented me from pulling that off, and since it is a common archetype in modern, people tend to be ready to counter it sometimes. I recommend paying attention to the new Gruul enchantaments, they help to fight control a lot. Now, I am going to give you my point of view on more of these mechanics, hoping to help you on the long run. Please, do not have it as me pretending to know more than you do or anything, it is just based on my personal experience. Now with this out of the road, let me begin.
All the Eldrazi Werewolves (The likes of Kessig Prowler Flip, Smoldering Werewolf Flip, Vildin-Pack Outcast Flip, etc) are just a bad idea with Immerwolf , specially if you are running 4 copies of it. I myself used to have Vildin-Pack Outcast Flip as a finisher and to abuse Kessig Prowler Flip but ended up removing them due heavy incompatibility. My suggestion is to replace one side of the equation or lower the Immerwolf count to 1-2. Also keep in mind that Huntmaster of the Fells Flip and Ulrich of the Krallenhorde Flip suffer heavily with Immerwolf company as well, for they need to keep on changing to really shine. Both are great strategies, just not fully compatible in between.
Hope it helps, and keep up the good job :D
