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).

Yo whats up. I switched out 4x Village Messenger  Flip for 4x Bomat Courier. Then i changed out x2 Fatal Push for x2 Unlicensed Disintegration. What do you think about this change? I am looking to plot in just a few more artifacts so i can keep using Unlicensed Disintegration at it's biggest potential. Overall i am a huge fan of Unlicensed Disintegration so i really want to make it fit.

acbooster on If I cast Metallic Mimic ...

Panharmonicon doesn't affect Metallic Mimic at all.

Triggered abilities always start with "When", "Whenever", or "At". Metallic Mimic has an ability that modifies how it enters the battlefield, but it's not an ability that triggers when it enters the battlefield.

However if you were to have two and have Human named on one and Werewolf on the other, both will have the Village Messenger  Flip enter with a +1/+1 counter. Again though, this is not a triggered ability and Panharmonicon won't affect it.

When Metallic Mimic enters the battlefield, you need to choose a creature type, and with Panharmonicon out, you get to name two types. If you then play a creature that's both of those types, say Village Messenger  Flip after naming human and werewolf, will you get a +1/+1 counter for each and will Panharmonicon double those counters?

Scrapheap Scrounger is definitely in consideration as a swap for Village Messenger  Flip, but as mentioned the Messenger provides a turn one play, and is surprisingly good especially on the play, having recently seen it in action.

Hentaiology on Werewolves

Looks pretty good but Assembled Alphas and Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip are a too expensive in my opinion also you might wanna trade some of your werewolves for others like Solitary Hunter  Flip for Lambholt Pacifist  Flip, maybe Ulvenwald Captive  Flip for Village Messenger  Flip because youre already running 24 land I dont think you need the ramp, or if you like running the eldrazi werewolves Geier Reach Bandit  Flip flipped is pretty cool. In the end I just think ulrich and alphas are too expensive even though I love alphas maybe it would be good to cut a few of each to put other cards in

Freezingfist on R/G werewolves?

Nice to see that Werewolf tribal isn't completely dead, Hentaiology

Love the name, by the way.. (insert lenny face)

My suggestion would be... go faster.

I'd lean a little more heavily into

Village Messenger  Flip to get on the board early. Invigorated Rampage to make those hits count. Blossoming Defense to keep the pack alive. Shock to remove pesky creatures in the way or finish them off.

Regardless, +1 from me! (Obligatory moon howling)
