Strength of the Tajuru Discussion

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.

Even with 6 mana dorks, I think I'd still want closer to 18-20 lands here. I'm a big fan of Silverfur Partisan , and to take better advantage of it, I like spells that can target multiple wolves. Strength of the Tajuru and Setessan Tactics are the two I've used the most.

Big fan of Verazol! This deck is just going to get better and better, mark my words.
Verazol itself is a beefy +1/+1 counter critter, so you could look for cards that add bonuses to creatures with counters. Off the top of my head Skatewing Spy or Zegana, Utopian Speaker could be worth your while, and there are lots more to discover.

From my own experience playing pure wolves in jank Howl of the Night Pack / Wolfbriar Elemental , Feed the Pack walls, golgari Kessig Cagebreakers , and my shaman kinship deck Size of the Fight in the Dog, I highly recommend Silverfur Partisan . He's good with friendly Giant Growth and enemy Doom Blade s flying around, and he's excellent with multitarget spells like Setessan Tactics and Strength of the Tajuru thrown in. If I had to cut something first, it'd probably be Brazen Wolves since a 3 mana (sometimes) 4/3 isn't as impactful as even a Spirit of the Hunt or Witchstalker . Interestingly, both of those wolves might make decent sideboard cards, the stalker especially. The new Sarulf's Packmate is a card I haven't tested but I think is worth looking into as well. Otherwise for the side, I'd start by adding some ways to stop removal from shutting down your creatures. Asceticism is a classic pick for slower metas.

Strength of the Tajuru would get stupid very quickly at instant speed. I think it could be a wincon on normal creatures much less one with infect.

Strength of the Tajuru. If you are about to lose all your mana (because your boss died) convert it all to counters. Also good if you have tons of mana and somebody didn't block an elf.
Dragon Throne of Tarkir would be great if you were more creature heavy. As it is I'm not sure this would help much.
