Reckless Waif Discussion
3 weeks ago
I've fiddled around with werewolves in the past, since I love interesting, unusual mechanics. I never was quite satisfied with it--I dislike playing aggro to begin with, and they just are a subpar creature type.
Moonmist and Immerwolf are auto-includes in any werewolf deck--you cannot afford to transform your werewolves by wasting a turn not counting spells, and an opponent hitting their second spell to transform your wolves is far too easy in the mid to late game.
Otherwise, I would focus on low converted mana cost werewolves. As with any aggro deck, your goal should be to flood the board as quickly as possible. Mayor of Avabruck Flip, Reckless Waif Flip, Village Messenger Flip, Wolfbitten Captive Flip, and Kruin Outlaw Flip are all solid options. Your curve should top out at 4, with the bulk of your creatures in the 1-2 mana range. Your little creatures can quickly become big, game-winning ones, so you do not need to have expensive-to-cast bombs.

I feel like Collected Company would work, even tho its a bit expensive.
I also played werewolf quite long and think Reckless Waif Flip, Village Messenger Flip and Wolfbitten Captive Flip can all be played as playset so that you get the one drops and immediatly set up some pressure.
Isochron Scepter as 2 of isnt to bad ether, as you can either inprint a bolt or moonlight hunt, but the interesting thing is the constant flipping and damage prevention from moonmist.
Heroic Intervention as sideboard tech against boardwipes and swipes, works aswell well with scepter

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.
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.
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.

Moonmist may be handy for you too.

My advice, take out all Reckless Waif Flip and replace them with village messenger, it just does the damage faster, and easier. Next the mana pump; Scorned Villager Flip is not bad, but i personally think Ulvenwald Captive Flip is just better. It may be harder to transform and loses its green pump, but it turns into a 4/6 which to me is just worth it. I would also trade the Wolfbitten Captive Flip for the Ulvenwald Captive Flip, since any 1/1 non-haste creature is just a blocker anyway, and its ability doesn't really make it that worth it to me since you have plenty of better ways to use that mana in this deck. Duskwatch Recruiter Flip is another wolf i would look into, with the combos you were stating, you will need a way to search those and recruiter can do that, not to mention that when its transformed you can spam those humans faster. Howlpack Resurgence and Waxing Moon are both also also a great card as far as werewolf tribal goes. Love Prey Upon, wish it was instant.

neither side of Reckless Waif Flip has menace. did you mean to refer to Village Messenger in your original question? Village Messenger is the best 1-drop. but Wolfbitten Captive is definitely better than Reckless Waif Flip. i personally don't run any 1-drops in my modern werewolf deck. i run Mayor of Avabruck, Duskwatch Recruiter, Immerwolf, Geier Reach Bandit, and Huntmaster of the Fells as my werewolves.
xyr0s how is 2 mana "steep"?

I would play Wolfbitten Captive over Reckless Waif Flip, as I see it being better in the long game with its ability to pump itself into a 3/3 or a 6/6. I would think Village Messenger would be better than Reckless Waif Flip as well, since it can get in 1 damage on turn 1, then gain menace when it transforms.
