Well, the Wolves and I had an absolute blast last night! Especially because we were able to make a TON of iconic plays ...

I seriously think the only regret of the evening was I didn't get to resolve Arlinn Kord  Flip

Farewell Wolves ... for now!

Well, I ended up on the straight Werewolf deck and had an absolute blast.

Immerwolf is a tremendous help along with the quick early one-drops in Reckless Waif  Flip, Village Messenger, and Wolfbitten Captive.

Moonmist may be handy for you too.

Honestly, I get why you use Gideon of the Trials, but I think that Always Watching will give you more bang. I know, I know-- it's an enchantment compared to a planeswalker and it's a silly comparison for me to even try and make, but I have a similar deck and I've found Always Watching to be the absolute game-changer. Just my two cents!

I also get the Fragmentize main board, but I would really move that to the side and move in your Sand Strangler or a couple additional Soul-Scar mages. Before it rotates, Village Messenger would also be good in its place.

For land, you'll really want to invest in Inspiring Vantage if you can. Very much worth the money. I think 1x Shefet Dunes might be a good fit as well.

Cool deck! Good luck!

With the standard rotation, Red deck wins, or ramunap red, will be losing Falkenrath Gorger and, depending on the build, Village Messenger. Do you think Wizards will print another aggressive 1-drop creature to replace them, or will they have to be replaced by Soul-Scar Mage?

neither side of Reckless Waif  Flip has menace. did you mean to refer to Village Messenger in your original question? Village Messenger is the best 1-drop. but Wolfbitten Captive is definitely better than Reckless Waif  Flip. i personally don't run any 1-drops in my modern werewolf deck. i run Mayor of Avabruck, Duskwatch Recruiter, Immerwolf, Geier Reach Bandit, and Huntmaster of the Fells as my werewolves.

xyr0s how is 2 mana "steep"?

@RazorWolf: You may actually want to play both, then, along with Village Messenger and possibly Kessig Prowler. You have to get damage going ASAP, which means playing a 1-drop. Otherwise, you won't be able to race decks like Burn or Zoo. Having a good curve is crucial, especially since Werewolves is a slower tribe as-is.

Do you have a decklist yet? Or one you're looking at already?

I wouldn't run either, to be honest. Village Messenger and Kessig Prowler are my preferred 1-drops.
