Lambholt Pacifist Discussion

clayperce on Are Merfolk being played in ...

3 weeks ago

Argy,
I've played 31 matches so far in RIX Standard (all pick-up games ... no real tournament play yet), and though Merfolk Branchwalker is all over (I've seen it in BG Counters, RG Midrange, and Sultai Goodstuff), I've seen exactly ZERO Merfolk decks.

Merfolk very much remind me of Werewolves, when they were in Standard. Lambholt Pacifist  Flip was a key part of Bant Humans and GW Tokens, and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip was a key part of Bant CoCo. But an actual Werewolf deck? Not so much ...

This is a good start! Probably much better than any decks I made when I was a new player! With that being said, I do have a few suggestions. First, I just want to to make sure that you want this to be an aggro deck that aims to win on turn 4-5. I ask because you have a few pieces in here that might lean more towards a midrange strategy in Kessig Wolf Run, Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Asceticism, Moonlight Hunt, and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip. None of these cards really make you win fast because they have high mana costs or have abilities that cost a fair bit of mana to activate. Which is fine if you want to adjust your deck to fit more of a midrange strategy. You even maybe play a fair number of werewolves that tap for mana so you can tap Kessig Wolf Run for pretty massive swings.

I do however think that an aggro shell works better for werewolves. Some cards I might suggest are:

Aether Vial: not cheap, but works super good with werewolves since putting them into play does not count as a cast.

Instigator Gang  Flip: A little higher on the cmc, but can win games. He can pump those werewolves pretty fast.

Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip: More of a midrange beat stick. But still good enough to mention.

Breakneck Rider  Flip: Another lord-esque effect. The trample is super good.

Reckless Waif  Flip: Another low to the ground creature to put pressure on your opponent early.

Lambholt Elder  Flip: An engine that can give you a lot of card draw when you start to run out of gas. Can also block some of the more popular creatures you might find in modern.

Lambholt Pacifist  Flip: A creature with an above average body for its mana cost -- even in human form. It can attack even in its human form if you have a Mayor of Avabruck  Flip in play or any other similar effect.

Kruin Outlaw  Flip: Gives werewolves evasion.

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip: Another card that is more meant for midrange, but it is very good at what it does. This actually sees some modern play in various competitive decks.

Village Ironsmith  Flip: fragile body, but the first strike can make it difficult to deal with for your opponent via combat.

Hinterland Logger  Flip: Another fragile body, but the power with trample can normally get a point or two of damage through.

Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip: Maybe more of a sideboard card against control, but it can also give you a lot of card draw.

Gatstaf Shepherd  Flip: Average body in human form. The intimidate gives it a little bit of evasion.

Kessig Forgemaster  Flip: Maybe more of a sideboard card, but would not be terrible in the main. Its ability will kill almost any creature your opponent tries to chump block it with.

Convicted Killer  Flip There are better options (like lambholt pacifist), but its 4/4 body is worth noting.

Collected Company: Also not cheap. But if you haven't noticed, almost all of the cards I just listed are 3cmc or below. The instant speed also allows you to not cast anything on your turn to get the transforms, and then just cast it on your opponent's turn to grab 2 creatures form the top 6 cards of your deck.

Lightning Bolt: Might be hard pressed to find any red aggro deck without at least some of these.

I'd drop the Hanweir Watchkeep  Flip for a playset of Village Messenger  Flip. It's a nice one drop with haste, and when it transforms it has evasion.

Though I'd becarefull with the red werewolves though, their effects tend to make you want to play more cards, and prevent them from transforming.

Some other cards to consider:

Lambholt Pacifist  Flip- While it can't attack right away, it's a nice T2 drop blocker.

Duskwatch Recruiter- A standard werewolf include.

Pack Guardian + Silverfur Partisan - Generates extra green wolf tokens.

Spirit of the Hunt- Provides some extra defense to your wolves and werewolves.

Thanks for reaching out on MTGO the other day! Also, sorry I never replied to your note of 9/23! I ended up running a "classic" wolves deck rather than Zadafur, and it went really well ... we had a tiny group, so we were much more playing for fun than for competitiveness. But I made a bunch of iconic plays (flipping Village Messenger  Flip and Neglected Heirloom  Flip, beating face with Lambholt Pacifist  Flip, Ulrich, Uncontested Alpha  Flip fight club, etc), and had a blast!

Finally, very sorry but I've been focusing on Modern lately, so haven't really played Standard in two seasons now ... I'm afraid any thoughts I might give you on your decks could do more harm than good! You'll frankly do much better just posting in the Standard Deck Help forum :-)

Draw well!

Me and my girlfriend made a standard werewolf deck for her on Standard (now cycling out of it), so most I can give you are ideas.

I like Howlpack Resurgence over Full Moon's Rise since it has flash and you can pass turn without casting anything to transform your werewolves - you do lose the protection regenerate provides, though. Village Messenger is pretty agressive and is a pain to block when it flips. I don't like Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, and I think you could run some Scorned Villager  Flip for some mana-ramps. I think Lambholt Pacifist is pretty strong by itself, but we did run 4 copies of the enchantment I mentioned and also 3 copies of Neglected Heirloom  Flip - this weapon is nasty when it flips since it also gives first strike. Kessig Forgemaster  Flip is also a pain to deal with since her damage text triggers before First Strike. Some other werewolves we used too are Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip for draw and Breakneck Rider  Flip for another trample source. I also liked Pack Guardian because of the Flash text so you can pass turn without doing anything to transform other werewolves and dump unwanted lands to make wolf tokens. There's also some new Ixalan cards you could consider, such as Shaper's Sanctuary.

Whew that was a lot of cards, anyway, if you want more consistency, you should probably run fewer 4's and more 3's (i'd suggest around twelve 3 cmc cards), and maybe one more land (your average CMC is 2.76, I usually go 2X lands where X is the average CMC pointed out by tappedout, so in your case 22 or 23). I see you also run only 5 targeted removals (not considering the werewolves flip). I try to run between 8 to 12 removals so I can deal consistently with my opponent's board. You could just run 4 each (bolt and hunt) and maybe sideboard some more. Naturalize is a good one to sideboard and deal with non-creatures.

I'm not a pro, just play casual FNMs and casual games with friends, but that's how I try to build decks. I hope it helps.

Well, the Wolves and I had an absolute blast last night! Especially because we were able to make a TON of iconic plays ...

I seriously think the only regret of the evening was I didn't get to resolve Arlinn Kord  Flip
:_(

Farewell Wolves ... for now!

clayperce on Which cards are you going ...

As for me? Lambholt Pacifist  Flip for sure. I love everything about the card: The design, the art (both sides), the flavor text ... everything. And of course she totally won games too! Not just in my personal janky Werewolf decks at FNM, but in the hands of the pros at places like ...
