The only way to really tell how much land you need is to play the deck in real games over and over again, fine-tuning the number each time. Setessan Tactics works very similarly to Strength of the Tajuru , only instead of giving your creatures permanent counter buffs, it gives them a temporary buff and the ability to tap and fight something. The fight mechanic is basically Moonlight Hunt but only 1 of your creatures is doing damage and the opposing creature also deals its damage back. As an example board state, say you had 1 Silverfur Partisan , 1 Spirit of the Hunt , and 1 Ulvenwald Captive  Flip against an opponent's board of 1 3/3 beater and 1 1/1 mana dork. You could cast Setessan Tactics and pay a strive cost of to target all of your creatures. This would trigger the Partisan and cause you to create 3 2/2 wolf tokens. You can technically just stop there since paying 4 mana for 6/6 in wolves that can themselves be buffed by Howlpack Alpha and Howlpack Resurgence isn't a bad deal in its own right. Or, you could then tap the now 4/4 spirit to fight and kill the enemy 3/3 and tap either of the other two wolves to fight and kill the 1/1. If you have deathtouch on those wolves from something like Garruk Relentless  Flip or Wren's Run Packmaster , you can even kill creatures much larger than your wolves. Moonlight Hunt can also do that to an extent, but it has the downside of not targeting your creatures which makes it a slight nonbo with Partisan.

Garruk Relentless  Flip is definitely worth playing if you keep deathtouch in the deck. Otherwise, the planeswalkers in the side tend to favor the ramp approach.

Just in terms of competitive efficacy, my modern infect deck was the best deck I ever built (and remains the best pauper deck I own). When I was in middle school, I had a win rate against my friends of well over 90%. However, as you might imagine, that was not a fun experience for them. In fact, it was not a fun experience for me either, even if I told myself that it was. Sometimes the best decks aren't actually the best decks. I like decks that try to do something unique and interesting regardless of their power level. Finding that balance is tricky though and depends entirely on the priorities of your group. With that goal in mind, my mono-green defender deck Walled Garden Warfare would be my best and favorite creation. People might get salty losing to Ezuri, Renegade Leader , but people tend to laugh when they get hit in the face with a Tree of Redemption .

I can think of a way to do it with this spell X=5, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, no floating mana. Also a way with this spell X=4, no cards in hand, two mana sources one that produces white on board, and no floating mana; or X=3, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, and floating.

All scenarios are abusing PW that tutor to search for other cards that do the actual kill. Either infinite mana into Walking Ballista ( Elspeth Tirel , Ajani, the Greathearted , Xenagos, the Reveler , Garruk Relentless  Flip, Tezzeret the Seeker ) or the Copy Cat combo ( Garruk Relentless  Flip, Elspeth Tirel , Saheeli Rai , and either the 4 mana or the 2 sources and Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

Give it some time to refresh, as that particular image now no longer exists on any of the printings of Garruk Relentless  Flip.

Ok so the back side of the innistrad art of Garruk Relentless  Flip is showing the Garruk, the Veil-Cursed art in the deck veiwer and play testing. But clicking on the card to it's link or whatever shows the right art. Sorry if this was confusing

Femme_Fatale there seem to be no change. Garruk Relentless  Flip it still shows the v17 art on the back side. Sorry if I'm bothering you

I cannot help with any of the backend card stuff, try posting on this thread for help.

It would also be useful if you link the card in your post so whoever can help you can more easily see that the "flip" scroll over produces the wrong printing. On the off chance you do not know how to link specific cards, use the following:

ryangemus, Lightning Bolt is an insane card, to be honest, and is more of a mainboard play than Vines of Vastwood in most cases. If you had deathtouch from something like Wren's Run Packmaster or Garruk Relentless  Flip, I'd consider dropping red from the deck entirely since DT turns every Fight into a Murder and Immerwolf isn't that insane in a world dominated by Metallic Mimic s. As it stands though, Bolt is providing possibly your most efficient answer to enemy threats. For Giant Growth vs. Vines, it really depends on how much removal you're dealing with. More removal means Vines, Defense, Apostle's Blessing , and Mutagenic Growth become better. More creatures mean Growths, Might of Old Krosa , Groundswell , etc. become better. If you do choose more combat tricks, I'd definitely run the full 4 of Partisan.

All that being said, I think I'd rather remove Howlpack Resurgence before either instant. It's typically a worse lord than Immerwolf , and like the unblockable wolves, its trample benefit becomes worse the wider your deck goes. More than anything though, there's now a bit of a glut on 3-drops here, and dropping some for more 1's and 2's could smooth the curve. You can always sideboard in extra lord effects in games where you're getting hammered by Anger of the Gods sweepers or just need the extra damage to overcome a stalemate.
