Immerwolf is a tremendous help along with the quick early one-drops in Reckless Waif  Flip, Village Messenger, and Wolfbitten Captive.

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.

The choice, for me, is heavily dependent on whether it is a multiplayer or pvp game you have in mind.

Multiplayer: Wolfbitten Captive, more versatility in multiplayer matches

PVP: Reckless Waif  Flip because she can be fast. Though only play her if you also play Moonmist and/or Geier Reach Bandit  Flip, so you can manipulate her state.

I must say that I don't run her in my We're Wolves deck, because she is fast but not that good in multiplayer games, which I normally play.

I would run Reckless Waif  Flip. The mana cost on Wolfbitten Captives buff is just too steep to pay later on. If you want a manasink for those turns where you don't want to play any cards, Kessig Wolf Run is a lot better.

Just want some opinions and reasons why you think what you think. Would you run Reckless Waif  Flip over Wolfbitten Captive ? Does the menace outweigh a kinda heafty buffing price?

You are going to want to cut a lot of the 1 ofs for more 3-4 ofs to make your deck more consistent. Eliminate some of the mediocre creatures for more of the better ones. The deck could also use some removal that doesn't require fighting. Not sure what your budget is but here are some considerations:

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip is the best werewolf in Magic

Lightning Bolt


Flame Slash


Full Moon's Rise

Breakneck Rider  Flip

Moonmist>Waxing Moon

Mayor of Avabruck

Master of the Wild Hunt

Silverfur Partisan

Reckless Waif  Flip>Village Messenger
