I would add red simply for Immerwolf, lord cards are invaluable in magic. Additionally, Coat of Arms has great tribal synergy. All the ramp seems out of place, wolves tend to not be expensive and as such they don't need all the ramp.

Other wolf cards to consider with red are Pyreheart Wolf, Assembled Alphas, and then if you are open to werewolves Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip are second to none and if you flip them (Waxing Moon, Moonmist) with Immerwolf out they don't flip back and stay in the werewolf form that makes them so good.

Perhaps use Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric to prevent werewolves from ever transforming back?

What about going all in on land destruction with cards like Thoughts of Ruin, Boom/Bust, Crack the Earth and Akki Blizzard-Herder, and run 4 each of the Werewolves  Flip that  Flip make  Flip mana, and 4-each of all the one-mana  Flip werewolves  Flip you can find  Flip.

Maybe Waxing Moon instead of Moonmist? Most the opponents won't have anything to do without land, and you can almost guarantee they'll flip, and Waxing Moon can make the other wolves transform. Maybe an Explorer's Scope so your own land destruction doesn't hurt yourself so bad.

I don't know, I like the idea of werewolves and land destruction. I can see lots of potential in a deck like this.

imo, you absolutely need 4 copies each of Moonmist and Waxing Moon. the chances of your werewolves flipping naturally in modern are almost non existent. i would also highly recommend Aether Vial, as it lets you put werewolves into play without "casting" them. you can vial in a werewolf, pass turn, and it flips. or if your opponent doesnt cast a spell on their turn, you can vial in a werewolf during their end step, and then flip it immediately on your turn. other than that, the rest of your werewolf deck seems mostly similar to the werewolf deck i also have posted on this site

CoCo isn't great for werewolf decks. a coco deck needs a low noncreature count, and in werewolves, there are too many noncreature spells you NEED. Moonmist, and Waxing Moon are pretty much mandatory if you ever want your werewolves to flip. Moonlight Hunt is also really good removal. Geier Reach Bandit  Flip is also a must. once its flipped, all your other werewolves can enter play flipped. Village Messenger  Flip is strictly better than Reckless Waif  Flip

I had a similar deck to this as EMN came out. Blood Mist was so powerful in the deck. Along with Uncaged Fury. Thought they might be worth a consideration in here! Waxing Moon is another staple for a werewolf deck IMO. Good luck, mate!

Hentaiology I never even thought of that!! Vildin-Pack Alpha  Flip and Waxing Moon would be awesome for flipping the eldrazi werewolves!! I know I have a bad habit of only putting 20 lands in my decks, I just can't seem to fit everything otherwise XD. I'll definitely consider it tho. Thanks dude!!

Thanks man,

Actually i've put Waxing Moon and Cult of the Waxing Moon on the deck. But i don't think that Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip is a good fit for the deck, for he is too soft (n of cards in my hand for a 5 mana cost, can be most of times, 1 to 3). Not that i don't like the card, I use it on my Zegana deck. LoL
