Silverfur Partisan 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.

Antarktika on Mono Green Wolf Werewolf Tribal

I think this is pretty good if you're just intending for it to be a casual deck for teaching people. My nitpicks would be that Wicked Wolf seems kind of out of place, and you have no way to give it food; my other thing (this one is pretty minor), is that you don't have too much holding the tribal theme together. You've got Silverfur Partisan, Full Moon's Rise, Howlpack Resurgence, Moonlight Hunt, and Arlinn, Voice of the Pack as your "wolves-matters" cards, and three of those are being run as 1-ofs.

However, that's all getting into pretty nitpicky territory if you're just teaching people how to play. I like this as a starter deck.

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.

Antarktika you must also realize that while 17 creatures is a low count this deck is meant to produce tokens as well. And if you can get Silverfur Partisan or multiple copies of it on board then it produces them faster with using cards like Moonlight Hunt, Rabid Bite and Band Together. Removal like Lightning Bolt or Shock are great because they can target other things than creatures but I based the deck around targeting my creatures to produce tokens, kill my opponent's creatures and then overwhelm my opponent with combat damage. Now I have no idea if it will work properly because honestly I don't get to play paper magic much anymore. So the deck is just something to have on hand to pull out for fun really. Thank you for your comment. I do have a mono green wolf deck if you want to check it out.

-Arcanity- on Zada’s Wolfpack

I see you're going all in on Silverfur Partisan, running a total of 11 wolves in your deck. Since you're going so deep on one card, I'd play the full four. the ability even stacks when you have multiple on the battlefield!

Now, an issue I see is that if you do not draw either Zada, Silverfur, or Season of Growth, you're left with a bunch of underpowered wolves, which isn't ideal, though I don't think there is a way to fix that as all the more powerful wolves come from original Innistrad block which isn't in pioneer.

Also, I recomend you swap Vines of the Recluse with Invigorated Rampage. Vines is very poor, as this kind of deck simply isn't in the market for a defensive combat trick. Rampage is ideal for this deck as it can target two creatures, thus making two wolves for each Silverfur in play. The extra mana should be manageable (you have 8 ramp sources in the deck, even excluding the Enter the Unknowns).

Maybe you don’t want to take this route but about Silverfur Partisan? Every time you target Zada you literally double the number of wolves you had

AndrewS05 on A question on interactions with ...

The following sequence occurred in a game where I had Silverfur Partisan and 2 2/2 wolf tokens on the battlefield.

Opponent: Casts Bonecrusher Giant Stomp adventure mode targeting one of the tokens.

Me: Respond with Gods Willing targeting the token to give it protection from red.

Opponent: Casts Stubborn Denial in response to Gods Willing (With Ferocious also)

Me: Respond by casting another Gods Willing targeting the token to give it protection from Red.

At the end of all this, how many 2/2 wolf tokens would be created from Silverfur Partisan's Trigger? We both were unsure of the answer. Thanks!!

(For those who may be wondering, he did not target Silverfur because it had a +1/+1 counter on it at the time)

Perhaps Silverfur Partisan? It’s a great card but to get the maximum use of its ability it’s best in a deck that can cast a lot of spells on your own creatures so you can control the token production. In your deck you have just 3 cards that have this synergy, Vines of Vastwood. Silverfur Partisan is great against targeted control/removal heavy decks and it essentially replaces itself if it’s the target of your opponents spells. Maybe that would be better as a sideboard option for the deck.

In my opinion Geier Reach Bandit  Flip more directly contributes to the main agenda of your deck: to get the Werewolves flipped ASAP to get bigger creatures and win with a aggro/midrange strategy.
