Well i didn't see problems with going full on hatebears on my sideboard.
The benefit of getting your cards when you need them is hard to overstate, a reliable turn 2 scooze can be very hard to beat for storm - and its far better, than 1x relic, 1x surgical, and 1x damping sphere. Of course you can add stuff like Anafenza, the Foremost , Samurai of the Pale Curtain or Dryad Militant if you feel like needing more hate on the yard.
If you go with card draw instead of poor old
, you will be able to recover from boardwipes much more easily.
Probably the most obvious option to compliment them are the various bloodrush (and some evoke) cards, that can be cheaply spent to empty your hand, synergize well with an aggressive gameplan and are doing something if the game goes longer. Fauna Shaman is bad because, it gets killed by all the removal (other than Gut Shot ), and also gets eaten by counterspells - while instant/sorcery based card draw can only be caught with counterspell, which are rarely played at the moment.
Lead the Stampede is likely better choice for your deck, since your doesn't really benefit from ramping into high mana counts, as much as mine, and your creature base is less centered around creating added value on being sacrificed.
can help a LOT in finishing games in a timely manner, not to mention the keywords on
Evoke creatures can be even better as they often offer very unique benefits like Briarhorn 's flash, as it allows you to use the card to protect against damage based removal, and evolving them onto the field still gets all the value u could wish for, as you will get both the discount body, and the effect, the rest of the best are probably Glarewielder , Spitebellows (could be a sideboard allstar) & Faultgrinder to increase the effectiveness of Magus of the Moon

If you have problems with creatures, you can use cards with "bloodrush" as combat tricks, the chief being Viashino Shanktail which can lead to blow outs thanks to Flameblade Adept, or Hollow One being able to murder Wurmcoil Engine. (Rubblebelt Maaka, Scorchwalker are also worth consideration, and if you splash gree you get acess to Ghor-Clan Rampager.

Cards with Bloodrush are the bee's knees in any werewolf deck. They're giant buffs for a cheap price and don't count as a spell so they don't cause your werewolves to go squishy. They fit in thematically, too; the pack's gotta eat something. My favorites are Ghor-Clan Rampager, Rubblehulk, and Viashino Shanktail
