Werewolves have always been a favorite horror monster of mine, so I've tinkered with the tribe in EDH and a wolf enthusiast friend of mine actually made a deck for them. As such I've got a few suggestions, but take it with a grain of salt since our meta has an unusually high power level from what I've seen.

Given the description, I'm guessing the following are in to fill out the curve with early drops, but you may want to consider ditching Gatstaf Shepherd, Hanweir Watchkeep, Hinterland Logger, Lambholt Pacifist, Reckless Waif, Village Messenger, and Villagers of Estwald for later value cards or to free up room for some of my suggestions below. Similarly, I'd consider dropping Mass Hysteria as it seems dangerous, though with it's low mana cost I imagine you only cast it the turn you're going to win or as prep the one before that, and Fervor since you have access to better haste bestowers like Fires of Yavimaya , Rhythm of the Wild , Flamekin Village and/or other effects like Dolmen Gate , Angel's Trumpet , Sight of the Scalelords , and Steely Resolve .

As for what to put in, I think running both Radhas would make sense. Grand Warlord Radha allows you to aggress and progress in one fell swoop. In your present case that'd likely mean setting up so you have blockers for the possible crack back, though you could certainly add flash creatures to make the most of that mana during combat. As for the more on theme things there's stuff like Cult of the Waxing Moon , Spirit of the Hunt , Vildin-Pack Outcast  Flip, Howlpack Resurgence , Silverfur Partisan , and Hinterland Hermit  Flip to force blocking and potentially free up other shenanigans. There's also the {insert tribe here} supports like Adaptive Automaton , Brass Herald , and Metallic Mimic . Lastly I'd think about protection like Heroic Intervention and Soul of New Phyrexia since the board is key for decks like this and wipes are something any EDH deck worth its salt has at least a few of.

Hey QuietMyth

Thanks for the quick response, it really helps with you explaining the choices so I can understand why you made them and will help piloting the deck and making my own choices allong the way. But since you already play it for so long I like to rely a bit on your experience :-)

I kinda overlooked the Soul of New Phyrexia , fills exactly the same role but does more! You really think Darksteel Forge aged badly? It seems like such a powerful card and as I experienced yesterday 9 mana is really not that much.... My playgroup loves to run boardwipes thats why I'm thinking of running it..

I ran Sorcerous Spyglass for quite some time in my Archidekt: Queen Marchesa Deck but I always found it a bit underwhelming and too niche to run it. So I took it out.

So we put The Immortal sun in the not great enough corner, to be fair if I had to choose between immortal sun and Paradox Engine I think the engine would win.

Well the fact that your decission of not running it comes down to the fact of not owning it is enough reason for me to order it hahah. I like your idea about torpor orb as well, shuts down a lot of stuff so I put it on my list as well. Any idea what you would cut for those 2 cards?

Thanks again for the response, I really think brainstorming about cards and decks is one of the fun parts about magic, so I hope this doesnt ask too much of your time and energy :)

Ripwater great to hear!

I rely on Soul of New Phyrexia for my indestructibility. Darksteel like many other cards has aged pretty badly as commander evolves and wizards prints things specifically for commander. Definitely prefer each card to do a variety of things.

Recently with the printing of such strong cards as Yawgmoth, i am looking at adding Sorcerous Spyglass as a versatile answer to many strategies, the deck needs all the cheap interaction it can get without dipping into bad cards like Titan's Presence

The immortal sun is great, its just a matter of fact that now, thankfully, there are enough great colorless cards that we cant play all of them.

Paradox engine ought to be here but i havent picked up a new one. I believe Torpor Orb will be coming back once i can find one too, it is way too good to exclude. Even if its shutting down our powerful Duplicant / Meteor Golem + Mimic Vat it hoses so many lethal effects for this deck like Bane of Progress or Aura Shards . And if we need to turn ETB back on we can sacrifice the orb to our many outlets

There are certain cards and strategies you can use to try and mitigate repeating board wipes. Cards like Eldrazi Monument , Soul of New Phyrexia , and to a lesser extent Inspiring Call and Heroic Intervention can help protect your board.

But you can also try and use recursion cards, like Seasons Past , Praetor's Counsel , and Creeping Renaissance to refuel your hand after a board wipe.

If these don't seem to be effective, you might need to try and add more ramp and creature tutor spells and try and combo win in a single turn with Sage of Hours .

+1 Great deck, which gave me a lot of ideas for mine.

Would you mind explaining why you chose Soul of New Phyrexia over Darksteel Forge ?

Also, is skipping the on cast trigger of the titans using Planar Bridge worth it or do you usually fetch artifacts with it?

Finally, I want to add Kuldotha Forgemaster to my list but other than Myr Turbine , Spine of Ish Sah and possibly Darksteel Citadel with a crucible of world in play, I don't see the sacrifice as being worth it a lot of the times, is there something I'm not seeing ?

Thank you!

Crypt Ghast will make your big X spells easier to cast (and also plug more mana in them), and if you want to spent more moneys Nirkana Revenant is really cool

I'd do Talisman of Dominance --> Crypt Ghast .

Sundering Titan is a dope card but not might always hit if they're playing fast lands or check lands, but will definitely hit shocks; and probably only one or two. Grave Titan might be a better boy to slam down, or if you wanna be super janky, Josu Vess lich night . Soul of New Phyrexia is also dope

Blue is the second-best flicker color, and you're hard-pressed to find something better in Commander than Deadeye Navigator and Parallax Tide for flickering permanents out (Which is important if you're planning on playing Boardwipes that double as LD). As for Indestructible, Soul of New Phyrexia is probably the best you'll get asides That Which Was Taken .
