Nightpack Ambusher Discussion

BRG24 on Selesnya Wolves

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 am also messing around with a version of this. It is cool that you are splashing green for Nightpack Ambusher but I wonder if you are getting the full value of Cunning Nightbonder and Slitherwisp by not using more spells that actually have flash, such as Omen of the Sea, Ashiok's Erasure and Mutual Destruction. Just my two cents. My deck is private but let me know if you would like to see it!

I'm not convinced Nightpack Ambusher is worth the splash on its own, at double G pips, especially because I think you should definitely be running the full set of Murderous Rider.

I'm also not sure that The Ozolith and Lochmere Serpent fit as one-ofs. Lochmere is, I think, just too expensive. Ozolith is an engine and I don't think it should be a one-of in any deck, and here I don't think it pulls enough weight. I'd probably add the 4th Sinister Sabotage - or you could swap them for Neutralize, which might be better in games where you need to be the less-controlling deck. And maybe Anticipate or a one-of Sea-Dasher Octopus?

UB Flash is definitely an interesting thing to explore so I hope my suggestions make sense!

You could really use a full play set of Immerwolf, Maybe 3 to 4 Nightpack Ambusher, and if you want aggro, use several Instigator Gang  Flip.

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.

Robsxe it would be a very effective addition, but I do try to keep the cost of assembling this deck as low as possible. It's probably ironic to say that, given I have a playset of Arlinn Kord  Flip. But if I were to make room for Nightpack Ambusher , which cards would you suggest I remove?
