Ulrich's Kindred Discussion

Seems pretty interesting. You'll get a upvote from me sir. I was looking at the deck, I would consider running 1 or 2 more of Ulrich's Kindred. Seems like he would be real good and keep your creatures alive more often.

I think Silverfur Partisan should def be a 4 of since it synergizes so well with your creatures.

I think some of the enchantment are either unnecessary or can be upgraded to enchantments that synergize with your deck. I would drop the Blood Mist, Gruul War Chant, and Gift of Paradise for stuff like Howlpack Resurgence and Full Moon's Rise.

Naturalize is also probably pretty weak here and could be replaced. Creatures like Solitary Hunter  Flip, Brazen Wolves, Smoldering Werewolf  Flip, and Thornhide Wolves can be upgraded as well.

Here are some cards that are budget friendly I would find room for:


Lightning Strike

Ulrich's Kindred

Howlpack Resurgence

Full Moon's Rise

Breakneck Rider  Flip/Neck Breaker  Flip

Duskwatch Recruiter/Krallenhorde Howler  Flip

Cult of the Waxing Moon

Instigator Gang/Wildblood Pack  Flip

For options that are above budget:

Huntmaster of the Fells/Ravager of the Fells  Flip

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip/Howlpack Alpha  Flip

Lightning Bolt

Domri Rade

Instigator Gang  Flip isn't standard legal (it was printed during the original Innistrad) and while Neck Breaker does a pretty good impression, it wan't quite good enough to make the cut. The same goes for Ulrich's Kindred, it's a cool card, but I'd rather have something else in the three CMC slots.

Thanks for the suggestions!

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

    I would agree that Shrill Howler  Flip and Ulrich's Kindred Make good candidates for the axe. I refuse to play the howler as I feel it was a missed opportunity to be a good wolf/werewolf support card and instead they made it eldrazi support. The latter, as you have already noticed is a pretty heavy mana sink for a limited ability in terms of use. I love Conduit of Storms but I can see how his usefulness varies. My concern now would be that you are removing 3 creatures and I am suggesting you add 2 so you are losing bodies. For a Gruul deck based on tribal interactions losing creatures hurts.

    After taking another look at my own deck I can make a couple more suggestions for creatures you could replace those three with:Adaptive AutomatonTaurean MaulerChameleon ColossusTangleclaw Werewolf  FlipVildin-Pack Outcast  FlipWolfir SilverheartThese are all really powerful or offer good utility and are almost always better to draw than Howler, Kindred, Storyteller or Conduit.

    I've played my deck against similar style decks that you mentioned tomb14. My meta is rampant with Storm players which I feel are the supreme enemy of the werewolf so just get in early and be relentless!

    You've stumbled upon my biggest issue TheACTR! I'm running out of cards to cut as I feel my deck is reaching it's maximum level of tuning while still holding on to a strong tribal theme. I haven't had a chance to play Heartwood Storyteller but I am concerned for the same reasons as you. I like to usually get a game or two with each new card to really begin evaluating it's worth but I could see it getting the axe. Shrill Howler  Flip, Conduit of Storms  Flip, and Ulrich's Kindred are currently the closest to getting the axe. The latter in particular is a tough call for me because the indestructible is nice but having to swing and sink a fair amount of mana is tough some times.

    If you can get some copies of it, there's a fun combo you can use between Mirrorwing Dragon and Silverfur Partisan. Use something like Aim High to target the dragon, which creates copies that target your wolves, which has the Partisan create lots of wolf tokens. Arlinn Kord  Flip is a fantastic addition to this deck and you're spot on in wanting to include her, but you may want a few more wolves and werewolves to get the most out of Ulrich's Kindred and the aforementioned Silverfur Partisan. Just a thought.
