Wolfbitten Captive Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion CavusCanis

I actually never thought of that combo. My deck actually startedd out as more of a Eldrazi werewolf deck, but i ended up relacing Kessig Prowler  Flip for Wolfbitten Captive  Flip since i didnt know about that combo and liked Wolfbitten Captive  Flip ability more. But definetly a combo i will remember.

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.

My advice, take out all Reckless Waif  Flip and replace them with village messenger, it just does the damage faster, and easier. Next the mana pump; Scorned Villager  Flip is not bad, but i personally think Ulvenwald Captive  Flip is just better. It may be harder to transform and loses its green pump, but it turns into a 4/6 which to me is just worth it. I would also trade the Wolfbitten Captive  Flip for the Ulvenwald Captive  Flip, since any 1/1 non-haste creature is just a blocker anyway, and its ability doesn't really make it that worth it to me since you have plenty of better ways to use that mana in this deck. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip is another wolf i would look into, with the combos you were stating, you will need a way to search those and recruiter can do that, not to mention that when its transformed you can spam those humans faster. Howlpack Resurgence and Waxing Moon are both also also a great card as far as werewolf tribal goes. Love Prey Upon, wish it was instant.

Also Wolfbitten Captive seems pretty bad, the on flavor choice would likely be Young Wolf (same body but with recursion), the other option would be Experiment One (kind of a wolf I guess).

The alternative characteristics on a flip card can only apply while the card is on the battlefield and flipped. In your example Mairsil, the Pretender will only have the activated abilities of the "normal" half of the card. Any permanent can gain the "flipped" status if something causes that to happen, but it won't really do anything if the card doesn't have specific alternative characteristics for being flipped.

Similarly, the characteristics on the back face of the double-faced card can only apply while the card is on the battlefield and transformed. In your example Mairsil will only have the activated abilities of the front face of the card. Only double-faced cards can actually transform.

Note that Student of Elements and Mondronen Shaman  Flip don't actually have any activated abilities, which are always written out as "(cost) : (effect)". Jushi Apprentice and Wolfbitten Captive are better examples.

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"?

I would play Wolfbitten Captive over Reckless Waif  Flip, as I see it being better in the long game with its ability to pump itself into a 3/3 or a 6/6. I would think Village Messenger would be better than Reckless Waif  Flip as well, since it can get in 1 damage on turn 1, then gain menace when it transforms.

The choice, for me, is heavily dependent on whether it is a multiplayer or pvp game you have in mind.

Multiplayer: Wolfbitten Captive, more versatility in multiplayer matches

PVP: Reckless Waif  Flip because she can be fast. Though only play her if you also play Moonmist and/or Geier Reach Bandit  Flip, so you can manipulate her state.

I must say that I don't run her in my We're Wolves deck, because she is fast but not that good in multiplayer games, which I normally play.
