Love this deck.

Maybe Sage of Ancient Lore?

I've added Jushi Apprentice and Sage of Ancient Lore to the deck, and taken out Sylvan Yeti and an Island to make room. I've also switched out Ghirapur Orrery for Font of Mythos. I have acquired a Genesis Hydra, as well, but am not sure what to switch out for him yet. I was leery to taking out the one island, but the deck runs a decent curve, and with all the draw, I think it will be ok.

If anyone has any thoughts on switches for the Genesis Hydra, please let me know. I'll play it some more, too, and see if anything is lackluster.

SpaghettiToastBook, thanks for the suggestions! I just saw Psychosis Crawler the other day, and thought it would make for a great wincon, but the deck is somewhat group-hug, so I'll think on it a bit. I do like Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, and I think it might replace Sylvan Yeti. Jushi Apprentice looks like it will find a place, too.

Thanks for the suggestions, and the +1!

Sunbringer's Touch seems good here.

More creatures: Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, Realm Seekers, Psychosis Crawler.

Jushi Apprentice is pretty synergistic.

If you think you'll have the mana, Enter the Infinite is useful in conjunction with Laboratory Maniac.

So big stuff and ramp.

Aeon Chronicler, Maro, Masumaro, First to Live, Multani, Maro-Sorcerer, Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, Soramaro, First to Dream, Sturmgeist, all get huge from hand size.

Descendant of Soramaro is a fun effect. Kefnet the Mindful helps top up hand. Jushi Apprentice can have some political elements. Meishin, the Mind Cage has some nice political aspects to it. The Great Aurora can be a win con if you are ahead hand size wise. Alhammarret's Archive pulls you ahead hard. Venser's Journal keeps your life topped up.

I would go for 36 lands. 8 pieces of ramp, mana rocks etc.

Generally Tempt with Discovery is best when grabbing broken lands like Gaea's Cradle, Cabal Coffers, or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth but you don't have one but you're letting an opponent (potentially) get theirs. Might just be better to replace with a Ranger's Path, Nissa's Pilgrimage, or Search for Tomorrow.

Is there any other wincon besides Craterhoof? I like decks with multiple outs for diversity's sake, personally. If you generate plenty of mana and can get Kruphix out for a few turns why not a Blue Sun's Zenith for a mill win? Or add Laboratory Maniac for a win that way? Or the classic Helix Pinnacle route? Complementing your cloning effects is Mechanized Production for multiple of a helpful artifact but also a win if people cannot answer it.

Due to Zenana and company contributing to always having a fist of 7+ lands I like Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, Overbeing of Myth, Aeon Chronicler, etc. as beatdown options who work nicely with Thassa, God of the Sea.

DanteBeleren I do definitely want to stick with the (were)wolf theme, as setting up a situation where my opponents really don't want to play any spells, and I'm content to just smash them with werewolves, or Helix Pinnacle as much as I like.

If I'm narrowing down what wolves I really want, then I suppose I have:

Aggressiveness: Wolfbitten Captive  Flip, Reckless Waif  Flip, Village Messenger  Flip, and Kessig Prowler  Flip

Spell Punishment: Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip, (which combos nicely with Lambholt Elder  Flip and Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip)

Synergy stuff: Immerwolf, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, Instigator Gang  Flip, Kruin Outlaw  Flip, Geier Reach Bandit  Flip, and Spirit of the Hunt, Silverfur Partisan

Utility: Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Daybreak Ranger  Flip, Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip, Scorned Villager  Flip.

Also Wolfir Silverheart because an 8/8 and at the least a 5/5 for 5 mana seems pretty great.

I think those are the wolves that I really like, and I think they'll work well together, along with some other stuff. Ulrich isn't on that list because he's gonna be the commander.

This is ending abruptly now because I need to go sleep.

That really depends on how you wanna play the deck. Typically when I go for theme decks, I focus on the creatures being in that theme and cutting the rest. Relaying on the rest of your deck to support your theme (good or bad) isn't the worst thing to do. Since you're playing Gruul I would go for 25-30 creatures (including general) with 32-35 lands depending on how much ramp/rocks you end up running. Of your creatures, if you end up going with 30, try for ~25-5 (were)wolf-support average.

Something I always want to make sure people understand, this is you deck. If you disagree with any suggestions, and/or feel a card is terrible or fully deserves to be in the deck, by all means do as you see fit.

Personally I would go with the following creature base:

  • Eternal Witness
  • Nylea, God of the Hunt
  • Purphoros, God of the Forge
  • Xenagos, God of Revels
  • Stonebrow, Krosan Hero: This was my original WW general before Shadows over Innestrad came out, so more sentiment than anything lol
