Couldn't those two Lone Wolf be more Witchstalker s instead?

Do you think changelings are wolfy enough? Chameleon Colossus and maybe Changeling Titan. Baton of Morale would simulate pack tactics. Soul Foundry is a favorite of mine with decks like this and it gets extra synergy with your token doublers. Knighthood doesn't sound wolfy but some wolves are fast man (and its hilarious with your deathtouch cards).

I would consider cutting Sound the Call, Memorial to Unity, Coat of Arms (unless you never play against other tribal decks) and Lone Wolf. Aspect of Wolf has always under-performed for me.

Have you looked for a different commander? If you could find a Naya boss you could throw in Alpha Brawl and bring the wolf to them.

I can see that. Maybe Lone Wolf would be for when you aren't allowed to play Infect? lol

Anyway, thanks. =)

Yeah, I might've jumped the gun on Experiment One. It usually reaches its desired value by reaching 3/3 and regenerating once while looking for killing blow, but here it's not that easily achieved. With Garruk's Companion or Kalonian Tusker it would pull its weight, but that would make this a different deck entirely.

Aspect of Hydra paired with Groundbreaker is at minimum a "Giant Growth", but will more likely be bigger majority of the time. Playing the Groundsbreaker and buffing the Lone Wolf could result in a turn 4 lethal quite easily.

When you level up one of them from 2-6 to the 7+, they lose the keyword ability from the 2-6 range, which is why most levelers final level is just strictly better than their second level. This is shown on Student of Warfare, and it worked well with the Student of Evasion. However, I feel in gameplay, with for example Student of Recklessness, I draw him in the late game and pump him up to the 4/1 haste, but I can't go for the 7/1 Menace if I want to attack this turn. The same is true for Student of Exctinction, where sometimes I'd rather have Wither and sometimes I'd rather have Deathtouch. I do like dbpunk's idea for the green one. The Lone Wolf style ability isn't always better than Trample, but it feels a bit like a leveled up trample. For Student of Extinction, Wither could upgrade to Infect, for Student of Recklessness you could have Menace upgrade into "can't be blocked except by three or more creatures" ala Guile.

I definitely need to add Aurelia, True Conviction and Wound Reflection, just have to pick them up. I was also looking at Lone Wolf for the same reason you suggested Siege Behemoth and Outmaneuver; great cards for what I'm trying to do here.

I really like the idea of using Boros Reckoner, Spitemare -- and especially Arcbond with something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in play -- to deal out damage on the defensive.

I have a Quietus Spike I could move to this, and also picked up a Scytheclaw recently but didn't run it after realizing the damage is not being dealt by the creature, so Saskia doesn't copy that damage. But then again, if I'm swinging at Saskia's target, they're taking a huge hit before Saskia deals her damage, so assuming the opponent as full life, I'd need 4 damage to get though with one source to double damage it's fatal: 28 (4x2+20) from combat, then 16 from Saskia. Hm, I'll have to playtest these and reconsider.

I was orignally going to include Panharmonicon until I realized you cannot use it to double player targets with Saskia, so there's not much use for it and Strionic Resonator is a much better option.

Great suggestions, thanks Rzepkanut!
