First off you want to play a number of Moonmist, you can't rely on your wolves flipping naturally. Secondly, Young Wolf and Village Messenger are the best one-drops available in werewolves and should be the one-drop of choice.
Basically, drop the Eldrazi werewolves and Spirit of the Hunt. Your mana dork can be Scorned Villager Flip, you may also want to look at Pyreheart Wolf for menace, and down the line Huntmaster of the Fells Flip.

I just see it as turn 1 deal one damage turn 2 if it transforms buff him deal 5-6 damage for an overall of 6-7 damage or you buff him twice on turn 2 dealing 9 damage
Transforming and getting menace is huge in this deck turn 2
Mind you your hand will be running a little low and if you double buff him he turns back to the 1/1 haste at the end of the turn

Magmatic Chasm is often a better version of Destructive Tampering. I would also recommend cutting down to only 3 Kari Zev, Skyship Raiders, as she is legendary. I don't think your deck benefits enough from the artifact subtheme to be worth your time, so I would recommend swapping the Hope of Ghirapur and Inventor's Apprentice for other 1 and/or 2 drops (Village Messenger Flip is amazing). Pia Nalaar is also somewhat weak in aggro, so you could swap her out for more 2 drops. I would also recommend swapping Aether Chaser out in favor of Thriving Grubs, as it is much better to have the 3/2 than the 2/1 and 1/1 in my opinion.

I think you need to add some haste to the deck. One of the main reasons for running Red in any format is the low CMC cards with haste. I have a mono red deck for Standard as well, perhaps you could take some things from it and add it in to here!
I would recommend adding in Lathnu Hellion somewhere. Attack with him twice, and then fling him at your opponent for 4 extra damage before he dies anyways. I see you have Bloodlust Inciter which does help with haste, but if he gets removed then your haste is gone. I would recommend running Village Messenger Flip, as it is a 1/1 with haste which turns in to a 2/2 with menace. You could also run Bomat Courier to help get Hazoret on the battlefield quicker, as it will discard cards for you. Also kick Hazoret up to a 2x instead of a 1x.
My mono-red deck. :)

shame2rest What do you suggest changing? Bedlam Reveler sounds nice, i barely have cards in my hand by turn 4 (which helps Hazoret) and unless i draw 3 lands i can't see any problem with casting that new hand on the spot if I need Hazoret active. Sadly i don't own any Combat Celebrant and it's a little expensive bringing cards to my country, but if i see one i'll take a look.
About Bloodlust Inciter is a nice card but my one drop slot is already full and those other 3 i feel that are pretty good already, maybe Village Messenger Flip? is a guaranteed damage if i summon her on turn 1 but that may be an option.
Thanks both of you for the suggestions.

This deck looks really awesome! One card I would recommend is Village Messenger Flip for another strong turn one play, swing for one, then have a 2/2 on turn two, seems super strong. I would probably take out both Mondronen Shaman Flip throwing them in the sideboard and then both Kruin Outlaw Flip. The reason I don't like Kruin here is because it's a 3 mana 2/2 first strike when you play her, then only becomes a 3/3 double strike when she transforms. Her ability making it harder to block is relevant but not as important as early aggression, perhaps throw one into the sideboard versus heavy creature decks? Either way awesome deck and I would love to know how it does!

Voxelfox20 As I lready own 1 or 2 sets of Stomping Grounds, the price is in that one case not an issue, also the major downside of Rootbound Crag is that it can't be used to play a Village Messenger turn one.
At its inception of this deck it actually contained 4 Scorned Villager Flips, but I slowly opted out of them, as in many cases they just sat on my hand, while I played a Mayor of Avabruck Flip or a Full Moon's Rise to push a Village Messenger, or to push the Geier Reach Bandit Flip I had for turn 3.
