Look at the top seven cards of your library. You may put a creature card from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. When a creature is put onto the battlefield this way, it deals damage equal to its power to target creature an opponent controls.
Vivien's Invocation Discussion
5 months ago
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my deck <3 I'm still fairly new to Magic so feedback is appreciated! You're right, I do own all of the cards in my deck! I wanted to experiment a bit with some different types of werewolves and see which ones I liked best as well :) I actually agree with taking out Vivien's Invocation . It seemed good at the time but wouldn't be all that useful for this deck. My idea with adding in Immerwolf was to try and keep the human werewolves from transforming back when spells were cast, so I would try to play that when I had as many transformed as possible before playing it.Those are all really great cards to suggest! I hadn't actually seen them before now because I usually like to try to deck build blind at first and then see how the deck plays before looking up any cards or similar decks :) it makes it more fun for me!

Coolio. Sooo, where to start. Just based on how the deck has lots of singles, Im guessing that you own most/all of these cards. Thats fine, it just won't be as smooth as a deck you made then ordered. I would drop Vivien's Invocation . Its really pricy, mana wise, and none of your creatures have a high enough power for the second ability to really come into play. Now your deck is down to 60 cards. Good, keep it there. Due to Immerwolf , Shrill Howler Flip, Smoldering Werewolf Flip, Tangleclaw Werewolf Flip, Ulvenwald Captive Flip, and Vildin-Pack Outcast Flip cannot transform. You can figure out how to deal with that, if that is a problem you come across. Mayor of Avabruck Flip is a important card in most Werwolf decks. Howlpack Resurgence is an incredibly important card, so important that i have never seen a werewolf deck that didnt run it. Its somewhat pricy, but Collected Company is a powerful card, especially in a creature based deck like this.

@TheRedGoat Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for my bad englado.
The deck is built to draw a ton of cards and it pretty much always does. The only thing that can get in our way is, when we keep a starting hand without something for card draw, we don't draw anything similar and our creatures (which were to kill Grothama) will be removed. In this case a cheap early card draw spell like Life's Legacy or Hunter's Insight could be really useful. (When i built the deck, i was also considering those two but simply forgot to put them to the Maybeboard.
The Great Aurora - I've never seen this card before and I'm not quite sure if we need more lands on the battlefield, when we can already cast a 9 mana spell. The card draw is pretty sweet tho combined with Psychosis Crawler . (And you are right, the deck makes it easy to have a handsize of 20+ cards.)
Death's Presence - Could be pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I would cut antyhing for it.
I'd never suggest to play Grothama, All-Devouring just to have her on the board. Only play her, if you can make use of her ability in that turn or can protect her until your next turn.
Verdant Sun's Avatar - Personally I like the card, but I never felt needing it.
I can only recommend Grothama, All-Devouring if you like card draw and smashing face with big hitters. She definitely has a unique ability which you can't find on any other card in magic. Beside Barktooth Warbeard , Grothama is my favorite EDH deck.

Some cards I notice you don't have and so would ask if you've considered or tested them:
The Great Aurora can be a fairly one sided board wipe when you have a hand twice the size of everyone else combined. (Also works for token decks mind you)
Ravenous Slime could discourage others from attacking into your commander.
Verdant Sun's Avatar seems like a good way to keep yourself alive for a bit.
Do bear in mind I have no idea what your meta, usual play-style, or budget is like when asking these questions. I am considering Grothama versus Ghalta for a green stompy build, so I'm kinda just throwing out ideas that I might use for either one.

Hi, let's start with the side board. Replace Pierce the Sky with Plummet and definitely move Steel Leaf Champion to the main board, it's just soooo good! You seem to be missing 2-drops... Perhaps look at some mana-dorks as your curve seems to be high. I can see you are trying to synergize with Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma to make your spells cheaper, but you need some early interaction else you will just die to aggro decks. I don't think Vivien's Invocation is that great - it's too slow. Rather move Rabid Bite to the main so you have some form of removal to fend off threats.
But keep it up and play test the deck to see where it's weaknesses are and what you need to change to make it better. Have fun!
