You're pretty low at the 1 drop level. I'd suggest dropping some lands/creatures for a bit more speed in Dragonmaster Outcast, Thraben Inspector, Expedition Envoy, or even Village Messenger  Flip.

I tested this against Hellbent Amonwolves (AKH); here are a few thoughts ...

  • Falkenrath Gorger seems a little underwhelming. Maybe Bloodlust Inciter (as an enabler), Village Messenger  Flip (early-game value, plus great vs. control decks), or Bomat Courier (for some mid-game cards)?
  • Especially early in the season (when I suspect everyone will be trying them out), you may want some more answers for the Gods in sideboard. Burn from Within maybe (though it might require more lands)? Or Soul-Scar Mage (though it might require more Burn spells). Hmmm ...
  • I think you'll probably want some flyer hate in sideboard too. I really like Tears of Valakut and Clip Wings, but I'm trying out Vines of the Recluse too, because of the synergy with Exert.

I know you asked for thoughts on dealing with Sweltering Suns, but I frankly have no idea ...

By the way, I'm not sure why T/O is acting up with Bloodrage Brawler, Combat Celebrant, and Sweltering Suns, but they display properly if you add "(AKH)" after the card name.

Draw well!

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.

Try adding Village Messenger  Flip. It's the only one drop Werewolf, and with haste, it's a great card to get on the first turn.

Take out Ruinous Gremlin in place for Village Messenger  Flip and you very well might have a decently competitive deck.

The 78 card count is preventing this from being as good as it could be. I'd recommend stripping down as close to 60 as you can get. Some suggestions:

Village Messenger  Flip, Vessel of Volatility, and Urza's Incubator are all very aggro cards, but there aren't enough of them to support a super aggro strategy. Either trade some other cards out to focus on a more aggro strategy (like Howlpack Resurgence) or drop these cards.

Defend the Hearth is the wrong card for this deck, swap it out for either another Moonmist or Druid's Deliverance.

Swap Whisperer of the Wilds out for Scorned Villager  Flip.

Drop 1x Howlpack Resurgence and Gratuitous Violence.

Drop Lambholt Pacifist  Flip.

Drop Solitary Hunter  Flip.

How about Village Messenger  Flip? He might give you a bit more value than Speedway Fanatic since there aren't any vehicles in here. He's also a cheaper mana cost. Best of luck in your endeavors, friend.

Bomat Courier is a solid suggestion and a 1-drop I forgot about, it may be an upgrade over Village Messenger  Flip after some live testing.

Thanks Mokan, and Lost Legacy is in the board specifically for Copy Cat to pull Saheeli out of the deck, Transgress the Mind is great against threats like Fumigate and Unlicensed Disintegration in decks like this one that can only interact on the board, and Skysovereign, Consul Flagship is there to go over the top of board stalls (Servo decks, BG Constrictor, etc).
