Please link all cards in your question: Engulf the Shore, Lambholt Pacifist  Flip, Lambholt Butcher  Flip.

Engulf the Shore looks at toughness, so the Butcher would return to hand, and become 'untransformed'.

My t3: drew mountain. play mountain. I pass. all werewolves flip. (18-19)

your t3: drew Cryptolith Rite. play mountain. play Ember-Eye Wolf. Im not sure if i want to attack because i have 3 open mana. we have a 4/4 in Lambholt Butcher but i dont want to lose it. the wolf and berserker can block the menace guy if it swings. Expedite doesnt help me here. I pass. (18-19).

End step: I flash in Howlpack Resurgence.

my t4. draw forest. (ugh). play forest. play messenger. swing with everything for 9. You block with butcher to my howler. They trade. buff Lightning Berserker for 1 and double block with ember-eye to the 3/3 menace. everything trades. 2 damage from villager gets through. (16-19)

your t5: drew mountain. play mountain. play expedite on partisan make a 2/2 wolf and drew Might of the Masses. play second Expedite on partisan to make another token and drew another partisan. tapped 2 forest to play the Cryptolith Rite then tapped the game trail and the two tokens to play the new partisan . swing with partisan A. no blocks. (14-17)

my t6: drew ANOTHER mountain gosh. Two mountains in my hand and staring down a bunch of wolves. need to draw company now please. play mountain. I pass. werewolves flip. (14-17)

your t6: a zada would be great. draw cinder glade. play the glade. i only have one card which is might of the masses, which would be good but it doesnt kill me outright, might be better to save for combat or zada. but we swing anyway for 8. I block Partisan B with the buffed Moonrise Intruder  Flip (3/3). nah the partisan has trample. cast might of the masses on blocked partisan. make a token. partisan b becomes 7/7 and 4 trample gets through with the additional 6 dealing 10 in total. pass.

Lambholt PacifistLambholt Butcher!
I absolutely love this card. Unassuming but surprisingly powerful. Brilliant design. And pitch-perfect from a flavor standpoint (the flavor text and dove on the back face = yoikes)!

Runner up: Ember-Eye Wolf.
Because while Firebreathing is OK, Dog Breath wins games. :-)
