First Standard Deck that I'm gonna test on tournament, gonna see how it works


How it is at the day of today the deck after RtR rotation, I think there can be better things to put on the side, but nothing comes ot my mind yet

Great start, but your curve is way too high to be playing 20 lands... try at least 23, maybe 24.

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip would, obviously, strengthen this deck a lot.

Agreed. Needs Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip desperately. I hate playing against that card.

Thx for the suggestion, both Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip & a couple more of Cavern of Souls are gonna be incorporated, but I'm kinda low on the budget at the moment xP

But here I think I would have to remove some mana expensive card, but what card? my first idea goes with Kruin Outlaw  Flip while the Double Strike + evasion it's nuts, it happened to me that I have this card on hand and I get to play it late just because I can't get RR

I'd suggest running some burn like Pillar of Flame to remove early threats and remove them from the game. Its better than Prey Upon

A fast, good Werewolf creature is Wolfbitten Captive  Flip . A Pumping one drop that gets really big when he flips and still pump worthy. Also, a great late game drop that isn't Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip which you also need is Mondronen Shaman  Flip . Once she flips, she burns and makes them not want to cast spells. Don't overlook Wolfir Silverheart either, still gets the buffs and bounds to something and makes it even bigger.

Other fun stuff? Hunger of the Howlpack is just really good. Another great Sideboard card that is over looked is card:Autumn's Veil.

Corrosive Gale is better than Plummet .

Naturalize is more a sideboard card, but having 1 or 2 main deck doesn't hurt, but 3 is hard for me to see.

Same here. I went to NC State so I am a fan of the Wolfpack in general lol. I'm totally stealing the basics of this deck Xp

Great that you guys liked the general idea :D


Thx for the suggestions I'll say some opinions I have for myself in that regard

The thing I see from Prey Upon over Pillar of Flame is that it has the chance to grow over time, as in, Pillar of Flame will always do 2 damage for 1 mana, and that's nice, Prey Upon can do a lot more damage late in the game, not to mention that can work as an Murder if used with the black wolf of Garruk, the Veil-Cursed  Flip  Flip I see more versatility from Prey Upon

In the subject of Wolfbitten Captive  Flip I prefer Young Wolf over it, as both are great cards, but I want to have some chance of diversity, should I face an Elite Inquisitor or a Riders of Gavony I'm pretty much screwed if 90% of my creatures are Werewolves, so, some Wolves to make that approach a little more difficult on the opponent I see better

Mondronen Shaman  Flip I already have a couple, and thinking seriously of taking off some cards and incorporate her and see how it goes :)

Corrosive Gale over Plummet does seems better, but it's over next month due to rotation :(, same applies to card:Autumn's VeilOn the other hand, Hunger of the Howlpack that I see that could find his place on this deck, what do you think I should remove in order to bring it to play?

Again, thx for well explained suggestions :D

I like the diversity idea. My mono-black deck You'll Never Go Back had been owning until I ran into an Exalted deck with 4 Knight of Glory . Way to plan ahead.

+1 from me

Actually, when I suggested Wolfbitten Captive  Flip , I pretty much meant in conjunction with Young Wolf as it gives you better chances at having early game drops, and both are great 1 drops. This all but allows you to utilize a strong early game basis, and prevents you from having to mulligan as much to get a one drop, as the odds increase.

While yes, Corrosive Gale and card:Autumn's Veil cycle in a month, they are still in play and as long as they are in play, use them!

My issue with Prey Upon is I've seen it backfire. As soon as targets are named and the spell hits the stack, another spell hit the stack to remove a target, bounce a target (negating it from being targeted), or buff it to win. I'd actually prefer to see both in there, as they are great utility spells. Pillar of Flame 's greatness comes in the fact that it prevents the card from coming back if it kills. The other downfall to Prey Upon is that Daybreak Ranger  Flip on flip does that anyway. Extra removal options, added in with other things, is still preventing things from getting in your way.

I like your deck. I noticed you have Cavern but your mana base does look a little off has that been reliable? I'm glad your running 22 now that's my minimum in any deck. 24 is my maximum. You should replace Searing Spear with Bonfire of the Damned. Every red deck should run it. This is not a bias opinion but i do have 2 for sale I can put online if you do decide to start looking for a couple. Either way it will help tremendously. Also more Huntmasters would b helpful. At least 1 more b.c he is amazing. Good luck

I really don't want to be a nit-picker, but it's not technically tribal. Either way though I love this deck. I ran something similar in a standard tournament except I had Wandering Wolf instead of Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip .
