You meat want to include the Ezuri, Renegade Leader from the inventors deck, with the warcaller you only need to use ezuri once and the trample does the job. Beast Whisperer is another elf I auto include because he's really great. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is another wolf vs inventors card to consider. Ivy Lane Denizen actually works really well with the warcaller, and Bow of Nylea as well. Lys Alana Huntmaster can help make those tokens for ya. There's a literal Ton of non-budget options as well, but I've avoided mentioning them because you're on a budget. Oh and don't forget Lead the Stampede as it is a great budget option

Cool deck! I think a lot of your burn is sub-par, however.

Staggershock is a great way to get an easy 2-for-1 in Red. I think it would be an improvement over something like Burn the Impure in most cases. I also would not leave home without Rolling Thunder . This card can turn the game around in the late game.

I have really like this card in my own red decks, and I see you also like these effects. I'd suggest Destructive Tampering instead of Ruthless Invasion . Tampering is just more versatile.

You don't seem to have much artifact/enchantment hate in your deck. Hull Breach does both for a competitive price.

It's hard enough competing with the card advantage that Blue and Black generate. I would move Entourage of Trest and maybe even Crown-Hunter Hireling .

Speaking of card advantage, Lead the Stampede is a good way to refill your hand on creatures.

I found in my games that Lightning Bolt and its ilk aren't really worth running in a multiplayer setting of PDH. They're just not cost-effective. You want to make sure that your burn can at least give you an advantage. I would prefer Firebolt over Searing Spear any day, for example.

Ashcashcash: Against control decks I can flash stuff in on their end step, they'll counter it, then they'll be tapped out on my turn, so I can Lead the Stampede without being countered.

So the one thing I will say is that Elves excel at making a ton of Mana. Which you can abuse fairly easily. Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic and Elvish Archdruid (although Marwyn is not a bad stand in.) which then can be put into a win condition like Fireball or Ezuri, Renegade Leader . Beast Whisperer and Lead the Stampede are also absolute beasts in this kinda deck. Just some thoughts.

Well i didn't see problems with going full on hatebears on my sideboard.
The benefit of getting your cards when you need them is hard to overstate, a reliable turn 2 scooze can be very hard to beat for storm - and its far better, than 1x relic, 1x surgical, and 1x damping sphere. Of course you can add stuff like Anafenza, the Foremost , Samurai of the Pale Curtain or Dryad Militant if you feel like needing more hate on the yard.

Ditch Linvalla!

If you go with card draw instead of poor old Fauna Shaman , you will be able to recover from boardwipes much more easily.
Probably the most obvious option to compliment them are the various bloodrush (and some evoke) cards, that can be cheaply spent to empty your hand, synergize well with an aggressive gameplan and are doing something if the game goes longer. Fauna Shaman is bad because, it gets killed by all the removal (other than Gut Shot ), and also gets eaten by counterspells - while instant/sorcery based card draw can only be caught with counterspell, which are rarely played at the moment.
Lead the Stampede is likely better choice for your deck, since your doesn't really benefit from ramping into high mana counts, as much as mine, and your creature base is less centered around creating added value on being sacrificed.

Cards like Slaughterhorn , Rubblebelt Maaka can help a LOT in finishing games in a timely manner, not to mention the keywords on Ghor-Clan Rampager & Viashino Shanktail
Evoke creatures can be even better as they often offer very unique benefits like Briarhorn 's flash, as it allows you to use the card to protect against damage based removal, and evolving them onto the field still gets all the value u could wish for, as you will get both the discount body, and the effect, the rest of the best are probably Glarewielder , Spitebellows (could be a sideboard allstar) & Faultgrinder to increase the effectiveness of Magus of the Moon

Xica, thank you for the great feedback!

I'm going to play with the Noble Hierarch numbers and see where I feel comfortable. Exalted is good, but casting your spells on curve is great.

Fauna Shaman is for discarding your dork and putting an Impervious Greatwurm in hand to fling. If I wanted just raw card draw I would just go Lead the Stampede but this is tutoring a card to hand.

I will add the creatures you recommended to my Maybeboard (as well of some of the guys from your list!). I was wondering about that as well and will actively work to add more utility to the Sideboard. Is there a risk in going all in on the hatebear plan?

I copied your post to me deck list for future reference. Great stuff. Thanks again!
