You MUST have:

You can make room by taking the above tips and removing lands down to 35 as well as removing a random card that doesnt really fit the deck like Primal Druid and that should make room.

For cuts, i'd think about removing reach creatures as that ability is worthless once you have flying already.

So:

Then I'd cut down creatures that aren't that great in their own and are just in her for redundancy like

You might also want to as m switch stronghold assassin to Attrition and run Viscera Seer as a reliable and continual sac engine.

Also, if you're feeling spicy, you can run Killing Wave . You can use it offensively to drain opponents, it just as a "sac any number of you creatures" for a single {B}, since you can cast it for X=0 and still choose to not pay for each of your creatures.

Well Isochron Scepter only works for 4 cards in the deck, being Ancient Animus , Pounce , Titanic Brawl , and Setessan Tactics . It's barely enough, and unless they print more 2 cmc or less instant speed fight effects I don't think I'll actually be purchasing a scepter for my deck in real life.

OK, let us see…

Land creature ratio:

  • Try 22 Lands instead of 20 (trust me on this).
  • 25 – 26 creatures are just fine.
  • 12 – 13 spells.
Note: These numbers are not written in stone, you can add more creatures, but usually you should not go under 24, for this deck strongly relies on critical creature mass. I tried to run a similar deck with 18 – 20 lands, and it did not work very well. 24 were just too much, so I went to 23 and 22 and found that there was not much difference so I kept 22.

Lands:

Creatures:

  • Daybreak Ranger  Flip good card, but usually better as sideboard, whenever you face tons of flyers or when in need for extra removal. I would replace the whole set with Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, faster, cheaper (in both mana and dollars) and helps a lot to keep your hand and board full of wolves. Another budget replacement, could be Gatstaf Shepherd  Flip, same cmc, goes for like 20 cents the copy and has intimidate.
  • Geier Reach Bandit  Flip another pretty good card, but I would just main 2 copies, more than that is usually not great, and this opens space to great finishers like Kruin Outlaw  Flip.
  • You have a ton of “Lord Effects”, so Reckless Waif  Flip might be a good addition, since she has better body than Village Messenger  Flip. Maybe tun a mix of both? Also could replace some Bandits to make the deck more aggro.
  • Now about Silverfur Partisan . Most people think that you need a bunch of instants to cast on it yourself to justify its inclusion. WRONG! Even though that is a way to make it work, and even thought there a couple of cool combos with Zada, Hedron Grinder , it is not its main role. While in play, the partisan gives you a wolf for EVERY TARGETED WOLF OR WEREWOLF, which means that for every removal spell they cast on your creatures, you get a free replacement, which is great against some heavy removal decks. Remember that Werewolves have 3 main weak points, fliers, removal and mass removal. A great side board card.

Spells:

Hope this helps! Be kind and have fun.

Instead of Pounce , I would look at Path to Exile for creature removal, or Lightning Bolt / Lightning Helix for some direct player damage.

Yay mono green! My baby is similar to yours, though I like to run “fight” cards like Pounce , Rabid Bite and Nature's Way to get rid of bad creatures. I’ve never been a fan of Impervious Greatwurm as it doesn’t even have Trample, so I use the pricier Kozilek, Butcher of Truth since it makes unprepared mill decks cry.

Great job, keep it up!

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:

Ambuscade for Golgari Locket

Slagwurm Armor for Sol Ring

Pounce for Golgari Signet

Prey Upon for Deathcap Cultivator

Noble Quarry for Sheoldred, Whispering One

Grappling Hook for Vraska the Unseen

Ochran Assassin for Reaper of the Wilds

Bonds of Mortality for Phyrexian Obliterator ? :)

Golgari Findbroker for Treasured Find

Explosive Vegetation for Circuitous Route (If you add in my suggestion of Golgari Guildgate then this is a good reason to make this switch).

Swamp for Hythonia the Cruel as you have 1-2x many lands I think and also are a little low on creatures.

Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).

I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

Hi! Great deck. May I suggest a few changes? Cut Savage Stomp and Pounce for any more versatile removal spell such as Chaos Warp or Decimate . Check out my version of Gishath, it may give you a few ideas and you might be able to give me some too. Cheers!
