Choose target creature you don't control. Each creature you control that's a Wolf or a Werewolf deals damage equal to its power to that creature.

Moonlight Hunt Discussion
3 days ago
BRG24 Thanks a lot for the tips! i didn't know Moonlight Hunt existed! i'll surely modify the deck to add some of the cards you mentioned, as for red splash...it sounds good i'll surely make a Gruul wolves and test it with friends in Tabletop simulator, but for now i'll stick to selesnya in physical format (PD:Do you think i should change some things in the sideboard?)

Cool deck, but there are a few things that I’m not so sure on. Howlpack Resurgence feels like it has to be run as more than a one of, the anthem and it’s flexibility are too strong not to. Silverfur Partisan and Nightpack Ambusher are both strong cards, but there seems to lack any support for either, since you lack any targeting spells and relying on Vivien, Champion of the Wilds for flash seems too risky and inconsistent. Spirit of the Hunt seems quite good, and also gives more support for Ambusher, and running some wolf synergy auras like Mantle of the Wolf, Raised by Wolves or Wolfkin Bond, while perhaps to expensive in terms of mana, combine really well with Partisan. Moonlight Hunt is a brilliant card that I think would allow for much needed removal as well. My final suggestion may be slightly controversial, as I feel that a red splash for something like Arlinn Kord Flip or Ulrich of the Krallenhorde Flip might be better than white for Tolsimir? Not as sure on that one, but it’s certainly something to consider, although whatever colour you splash I’d recommend focusing your mana base much more towards green. I appreciate that this is a bit long, but I hope that you find this helpful in some way.

I think this is pretty good if you're just intending for it to be a casual deck for teaching people. My nitpicks would be that Wicked Wolf seems kind of out of place, and you have no way to give it food; my other thing (this one is pretty minor), is that you don't have too much holding the tribal theme together. You've got Silverfur Partisan, Full Moon's Rise, Howlpack Resurgence, Moonlight Hunt, and Arlinn, Voice of the Pack as your "wolves-matters" cards, and three of those are being run as 1-ofs.
However, that's all getting into pretty nitpicky territory if you're just teaching people how to play. I like this as a starter deck.

Antarktika don't be sorry. I enjoy discussing the ins and outs of magic. And you make excellent points here. Especially the point about Moonlight Hunt. Guess I misread the card. I think this decks deserves an upgrade now.

I'll address the point about making tokens. You've got three creatures that can makes wolves: Mayor of Avabruck Flip, Nightpack Ambusher, and Silverfur Partisan. You've also got the two Arlinns, but I'll ignore those for now. These all produce tokens under very specific circumstances that I don't think your deck is well positioned to leverage consistently. You're not running Immerwolf, so even with Moonmist you won't be always be able to control when the Mayor is flipped. Nightpack is a four-drop, which means you have to tap out for it on turn four and then not do anything on your turn five to get any tokens from it at all, which I think is highly inefficient. Silverfur is interesting, but smart opponents will target it with their removal first, which will be a wash for you, and you only have Rabid Bite and Band Together to target your own guys (you mentioned Moonlight Hunt but that card does not target your own guys). Bite is sorcery speed, and Band Together is three mana, both of which are hardly ideal.
The reason the creature count is a major concern is because you will not be able to consistently play impactful creatures every turn the way you have it right now. I don't think you can rely on tokens. As an aside, Lightning Bolt is better than the removal you're currently running, not because it can hit face, but because it is cheaper and will do the job just as well most of the time.
Sorry for the long-winded response. I'm not sure if I'm taking this way too seriously or not. I'll take a look at the mono green wolf deck you're talking about.

Antarktika you must also realize that while 17 creatures is a low count this deck is meant to produce tokens as well. And if you can get Silverfur Partisan or multiple copies of it on board then it produces them faster with using cards like Moonlight Hunt, Rabid Bite and Band Together. Removal like Lightning Bolt or Shock are great because they can target other things than creatures but I based the deck around targeting my creatures to produce tokens, kill my opponent's creatures and then overwhelm my opponent with combat damage. Now I have no idea if it will work properly because honestly I don't get to play paper magic much anymore. So the deck is just something to have on hand to pull out for fun really. Thank you for your comment. I do have a mono green wolf deck if you want to check it out.

Yay, werewolves! Looks like a fun deck.
If you want my two cents though, this is just too slow, especially for modern. 17 is a pretty low creature count for an aggro deck, and your curve is kind of off to me. I would run a few one-drops; Werewolves have some good ones. In addition, your removal spells (Rabid Bite, Band Together, and Moonlight Hunt) are all too expensive and or situational to really be recommended. I think, since you're running red, Lightning Bolt would be better than any of these 90% of the time. Of course, if this is just a sort of for-fun deck, then you can pay me no mind. I'm just obsessed with optimizing things.
This is my Werewolf deck, if you wanna see my take on it. It does cost a whole lot more money, unfortunately. Happy to see more Werewolf decks out there though. Cheers!

NV_1980 Thanks for the great suggestions. I used to have a Mentor of the Meek in the deck, but I took it out to put in my Karador, Ghost Chieftain deck. If I get another one it will definitely go in, somehow. I also like Predator's Howl especially because it's instant speed. I have always been looking at Master of the Wild Hunt too; I like how its essentially a repeatable Moonlight Hunt sometimes. I always thought it was a little out of budget since it would only fit in this deck. I've already taken this deck apart once because I didn't like how it performed, so I'm worried that it might end up being a waste of Approx 5 to 9 dollars.
