Sacred Wolf Discussion

You could have more success with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Collected Company, and scaled 3 mana green creatures as a green aggro deck. You could still use the dryads that way as early game damage but with those added cards you could have the steam to end games before turn 6 or 7. In the world of modern it would still be relatively budget friendly too. The fetchlands you have in the deck cost more collectively than those suggestions. Leatherback Baloth, Silhana Ledgewalker, Troll Ascetic, and Sacred Wolf in a collected company deck with Old-Growth Dryads, Predator's Strike, Predator Ooze, Vines of Vastwood, and Rancor would be a very intense aggro deck.
Just a thought, but the added power and hexproof would really boost the potency.

Any commander deck needs at least 10 ramp cards, and you are in green, the premier ramp color in magic. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, Devoted Druid, Priest of Titania, Wood Elves and Sol Ring (a must in every commander deck). I'd suggest to prioritize in creatures that add mana (over sorceries and instants) so you can later add a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and abuse of a ton of mana.

Awesome suggestions as usual bobba! I have had my eye on Sacred Wolf as well I'll add that one. The reason I don't have silverfir is because it's not a werewolf or wolf, kinda in between. But I am not doubting it's are is gorgeous! Moonlit Hunt looks great! I also had my eye on Raised by Wolves, I just though it was too high if a casting cost. But I can see it doing wonders late game! I also have a ton of them lying around so it won't cost me to add it. Unfortunately Kessig Wolf Run is out of the budget, but a great card nonetheless! I am providing half the cards and she is buying the cards I don't have on hand. She is jobless, and going to college, thus the budget lol, but what artist isn't in and out of work ;) as always I really appreciate your and hardhitta71194's opinions! Thanks a ton

If your budget has room for Kessig Wolf Run, it'd fit the flavour wonderfully.
Raised by Wolves is great both for power - and for flavour - I'm seeing a human afflicted with lycanthropy shunned by his fellow villagers but taken in by the noble beasts.
Moonlight Hunt is insanely eerie and looks so cool!
Silverfur Partisan does wonders for the deck, and I think it looks stunning.
I've always loved Sacred Wolf, and so did Momma In-Law from the moment she saw it. You can't go wrong with two such oppinions ;)
Hunger of the Howlpack could give a great boost, and it looks very intimidating :)
If you feel like you need some ramp - I'd go for one of the many cards from innistrad, they all have that special feel to them :)
Hope these can help you out a bit :) If you decide on a more story-oriented flavour let me know, and I'll definitely see if I can conjure something more specific up ;)

how bout add Raised by Wolves? it gives a creature a hefty buff and adds more wolves to your army. Howlgeist is also a nice creature to add in, especially if buffed right. same goes for Wandering Wolf. Young Wolf and Sacred Wolf are also both nice. but if you want a real kicker, add Vildin-Pack Outcast. after transforming it becomes super beefy and gets beefier when you pay up mana for it.

So, you're looking at wolves and werwolves?
The deck you'be built is remarkably better than my first builds (some poorly planned five colour changeling giant funstuff decks that never worked well)- you've got a fairly strong set of creatures, with the exception of Guardians of Meletis which is crippled by its inability to attack (but walls sometimes have their place too). The mana curve looks good, but I've never been sold on casting Tamiyo's Journal or Equestrian Skill- both cost too much mana for what they do, I'd rather cast a set of Hunter's Insight Heartwood Storyteller or Warriors' Lesson to get the same sort of damage and the same draw power.
There are a few 'wolves matter' cards you should take a look at for casual play, which could form the backbone of a fun, mono green wolf midrange tribal- Raised by Wolves, Wolfbriar Elemental backed by Howlpack Resurgence and some Young Wolf, Sacred Wolf and Witchstalker to round things out.
There is also the werewolf tribal decks that use cards like Full Moon's Rise Immerwolf and Huntmaster of the Fells Flip, although due to the success of that last in the competitive scene, the price might be a bit much. You can look at the mono green stompy decks that are falling into fashion at the moment, based around cards like Aspect of Hydra Leatherback Baloth and Predator Ooze to decide if you want to go that route.
Next up manabaase, and manadorks, your honored Heirach alternatives. Noble Hierarch is crazy expensive. Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid less so, but for mono green or white/black build you have the awesome alternatives of Arbor Elf Llanowar Elves Elvish Mystic Elves of Deep Shadow and Avacyn's Pilgrim. These let you play high-mana cards a turn, or more earlier, or soak up removal that could be hitting more important stuff. Other sources of acceleration are cards like Rampant Growth, Overgrowth and Fertile Ground which improve you lands, and can be comboes with land untaps.When you're playing multicolour you should ask yourself 'what colours do I need on what turns?' and 'How many lands can I afford to draw and still have cards to win'. This is usually prety simple with green acceleration decks, as you have access to cards like Cultivate to put the right number of the right colour lands into your hand. so you'll want to run mostly forests, with some of the other colour you'll want to splash.Most 60 card decks will run 18 lands for a deck casting mostly 1 cost cards, and 23-24 for more expensive 4-5 cost cards, with some other tricks (drawing cards or searching lands) to get themselves to 5-6 drops.
Most competitive decks run fetchlands like Wooded Foothills to search for cards like Overgrown Tomb, which costs life but guarantees you the lands you need to cast your spells. This can get expensive, and is only advised if you are looking to play in tournaments. The modern metagame is pretty intense and complex.

These are only suggestions. I enjoy viewing tribe decks and personally love wolves! I think these cards will help improve the balance of the deck.
