Mondronen Shaman Discussion

Kazierts on Fool Moon

Very interesting build! It's quite sad that Moonmist can't transform some of the werewolves in Eldritch Moon.

I've got a few suggestions for the sideboard, if you don't mind.

  • Howlpack Resurgence is good but I think there are better options even taking budget into account. One of those options is Rhythm of the Wild which can give a more permanent boost, thanks to the +1/+1 counter, or allow you to pressure your opponent with hasty werewolves while also giving your creatures some resilience as counterspell protection.

  • Cindervines would look amazing in this deck. Not only it provides enchantment and artifact spells, but also punishes your opponents for playing some spells, which is very good given the fact that you don't want them to do so because that could transform your creatures back to their regular forms.

  • Mondronen Shaman  Flip is a similar case to Cindervines. It's a werewolf that's going to punish your opponents for casting a lot of spells, which,in theory, should allow you to have your werewolves transformed for longer.

  • Lambholt Elder  Flip can be nice once it transforms. However, Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip can provide way more utility and discourages your opponents from casting spells on your turn.

These are just some suggestions. Let me hear what you think before giving any others.

A15Life there are a lot of werewolf creatures with transform. In fact, the transform mechanic was created around werewolves. There's a shit-ton of werewolves with the transform mechanic:

And all of this is without mentioning all of the non-werewolf HUMAN creatures with the transform mechanic, and the card I created makes all humans werewolves too. So yeah, there's a bit of use for Autumn Moon's ability to make a werewolf transform.

Sorry. Continue.

I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite , Aria of Flame , Ash Zealot , Bomb Squad , Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter , Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite , Karplusan Minotaur , Leyline of Lightning , Mindsparker , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance , Tephraderm , Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus , Warstorm Surge

Howlpack Resurgence: helps to boost the werewolves even when they haven't transformed

Mondronen Shaman  Flip: When transformed, she can punish players for casting spells.

What format is this deck for? If your plan is to build this deck for standard then you should know that all the cards in this deck except Tormenting Voice and to my surprise Oakenform have rotated out of the format. Honestly if you want to build a somewhat good werewolf deck I think your format is EDH where you can use Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip as your commander. It would probably not be great, but fun and flavorful.

Regardless of this there are some things you should do be doing to make this build better.

  1. Cut your deck down to a 60 card mainboard and a 15 card sideboard this helps with consistency.

  2. Second get your curve lower, cut down on 2-drops and add in some 1-drops to make your deck faster. Personally I would run 4x Wolfbitten Captive  Flip and 4x Village Messenger  Flip. Also Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip is a bit awkward I don't really see it being worth the 5-mana. I would consider adding in Mondronen Shaman  Flip and Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip. Really the best card for this deck is Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip but it is quite expensive.

  3. Add in some dual lands like Rugged Highlands and Evolving Wilds, even if they dont give you mana immediately they do make your deck a lot more consistent.

All around there is a lot of room for upgrades, but it seems like it would make a fun deck with a little overhaul. Happy brewing!

Mana bases in modern are usually 7 fetchlands + ~4 shocklands:

+4 Wooded Foothills

+4 Stomping grounds

I would also play about 2 Rootbound Crag and maybe 1 or 2 of either Copperline Gorge or Karplusan Forest

+4 Lightning Bolt (They are not even expensive)

-2 Mondronen Shaman  Flip

+2 Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip (Best creature for midrange decks)

-2 Instigator Gang  Flip (We have a lot of 4 mana creatures, which makes the deck slower and less aggressive/efficient)

-1 land

+3/4 Collected Company

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 was so wrapped up in having another werewolf mana dork I didn't even realise that Ulvenwald Captive  Flip had defender! Not ideal. Wish there were more transformer dorks though. Got to take your advise on Mondronen Shaman  Flip, it's not ideal and would definitely draw ire. You've got more experience with the card. Kinjalli's Sunwing had made it around this long for the sheer fact that it's a dino/transformer with flying. Sorely lacking in that department.
