Krallenhorde Howler

Creature — Werewolf

Creature spells you cast cost less to cast.

At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast two or more spells last turn, transform this.

I think Silverfur Partisan should def be a 4 of since it synergizes so well with your creatures.

I think some of the enchantment are either unnecessary or can be upgraded to enchantments that synergize with your deck. I would drop the Blood Mist, Gruul War Chant, and Gift of Paradise for stuff like Howlpack Resurgence and Full Moon's Rise.

Naturalize is also probably pretty weak here and could be replaced. Creatures like Solitary Hunter  Flip, Brazen Wolves, Smoldering Werewolf  Flip, and Thornhide Wolves can be upgraded as well.

Here are some cards that are budget friendly I would find room for:


Lightning Strike

Ulrich's Kindred

Howlpack Resurgence

Full Moon's Rise

Breakneck Rider  Flip/Neck Breaker  Flip

Duskwatch Recruiter/Krallenhorde Howler  Flip

Cult of the Waxing Moon

Instigator Gang/Wildblood Pack  Flip

For options that are above budget:

Huntmaster of the Fells/Ravager of the Fells  Flip

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip/Howlpack Alpha  Flip

Lightning Bolt

It doesn't have anything to do with the card's name, only whether or not it has already transformed since the ability was put onto the stack. When a card uses its own name in the text of an ability, it means "this object", and it will continue to refer to itself even if the name of the card changes somehow.

For example, if Krallenhorde Howler was about to transform, but you responded by casting Cytoshape and turning it into a Bear Cub, it would still transform (it would also still be a Bear Cub until the end of the turn, but that has to do with the rules of how copy effects work).

Asking for a friend.

What happens if my opponent plays 2 spells while I have my Krallenhorde Howler on the field and I use Strionic Resonator to copy Krallenhorde Howler's transform ability? Does he transform into Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and then back into Krallenhorde Howler or does her transform into Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and then stay Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip because the 2nd transform is looking for a Krallenhorde Howler?

I chose to include red for Radiant Flames instead of sticking to 3 colors because the mana fixing isn't a problem 99% of the time because of my playset of Aether Hub and Prophetic Prism, and also because 3 damage makes a bigger difference than it seems. 3 damage kills Spell Queller, Reflector Mage, Sylvan Advocate (before 6 lands), Tireless Tracker (even after it's been pumped once), Eldrazi Displacer, Lambholt Pacifist  Flip, Krallenhorde Howler, all of the 2 toughness humans once Thalia's Lieutenant hits...

You get the idea. There are a lot of 3 toughness creatures that I can kill with flames that won't die to tendrils.

Thank you all for commenting. So, let's evaluate your suggestions.

  • I was thinking of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx too but I'm a little scared of it, I could try because a friend of mine has a couple for one of his decks and I think I could ask him to borrow those. I really don't want to switch out Oran-Rief, the Vastwood though so I could trim the forests down to 16 and hope to not get mana screwed by non basics :P I'm going to test it as soon as I can get my hands on it, or made proxies.
  • Champion of Lambholt could be a great addition, switching it in for the 2xKessig Prowler  Flip would bring the number of 3 cmc creatures to 6, not so bad, and having more green devotion just helps out with Aspect of Hydra. Do not forget that we have Krallenhorde Howler  Flip also... That card could really speed up this deck. Added to the maybeboard and it will be tested.
  • I understand what you say Zatypoo2929 about deathtouch but I don't like that Sedge Scorpion, maybe a Gnarlwood Dryad and count on getting Delirium in the long run. That said, I don't know if a want to switch out those 2xKessig Prowler  Flip for them. The answer here could be in the addition of some removal. Lignify seems a possible choice, probably swapping out Solidarity of Heroes or Prey's Vengeance if they turn out to be too much for this list, especially the first one. With a better budget I like Dismember more as a removal.
  • Servant of the Scale was in my mind but knowing that I hope to upgrade to Experiment One soon I don't know if it's worth it to test it now. That said, it's in my mind and I could get my hands on it pretty easily and almost free. Shame it's not a warrior :(
  • Now the big 4 cmc creatures problems. I managed to find a couple of Ivy Lane Denizen for free so I will do some stuff with it but I know it's really slow and maybe not worth at all. As said before, adding Champion of Lambholt will just destroy this strategy and just keep the maximum creature cost to 3 cmc. On the other hand if this does work shoudl we consider other 4 cmc creatures that bring value or can be a big problem for the opponent? Let's think about warriors so they come in play already with +1/+1 and trample: Briarbridge Patrol gives clues, Surrak, the Hunt Caller ideally you should be able to unlock Ferocious at the point this comes into play and give haste to something else later, Drumhunter is another 4 cmc 2/2 but instead of getting bigger could be a draw engine and another mana source.
