Village Messenger Discussion

GoblinsBeatElves thank you for the feedback! I love your suggestions and already thought about Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, but was unsure. I included him and Game Trail as well, cut Hound Tamer Flip completely (thinking about it, the deck already had enough trample) and added two copies of Full Moon's Rise to give the deck at least some form of resilience against removal. This dropped the curve quite a bit, wich is always good in a fast format.
I thought about running Village Messenger Flip or Wolfbitten Captive Flip as my one drop... I'm still not certain which way to go, though I appreciate the mana sink of Wolfbitten Captive Flip quite a lot. I guess one could cut two Reckless Stormseekers and fill the slots with Village Messengers to drop the curve even further. I'll do some playtesting with that in the future!
Thanks for your great input!

Love the list so far, it's awesome to see someone else trying modern werewolves with IMH coming out. Based on my own list and my experiences in modern, I think I have a few suggestions that might be helpful:
Village Messenger Flip is another werewolf one drop, if you find yourself needing a bit lower of a curve. Having haste and menace of the flip side is decent enough for an aggressive creature in modern. I don't know if you've found yourself wanting that or not.
Manabases can definitely be hard to build on a budget, but I generally like to try the show lands such as Game Trail for budget lists, as they're usually pretty cheap. In this case, it seems like it'd work fairly well with your current manabase, with the Stomping Ground already caring about basics.
Duskwatch Recruiter Flip seems like it'd be great in your list (Maybe shave a few Hound Tamers or Reckless Stormseekers for it to lower your curve a bit?) Gives you card advantage and a discount on creatures once it flips.
Just throwing ideas out here, this is definitely all up to what you feel the deck needs/how it plays. Good luck with the list!

Sideboard help would be greatly appreciated

Domri Rade should be replaced with Arlinn Kord Flip. Ancient Grudge should be moved to side board, and be replaced with some removal Lightning Bolt is a perfect example. There are better options for Scorned Villager Flip, like Immerwolf, Wolfbitten Captive Flip, Village Messenger Flip or even Gatstaf Shepherd Flip, Lambholt Pacifist Flip or Kessig Forgemaster Flip.

A15Life there are a lot of werewolf creatures with transform. In fact, the transform mechanic was created around werewolves. There's a shit-ton of werewolves with the transform mechanic:
And all of this is without mentioning all of the non-werewolf HUMAN creatures with the transform mechanic, and the card I created makes all humans werewolves too. So yeah, there's a bit of use for Autumn Moon's ability to make a werewolf transform.

Given that all of your creatures already have menace, I feel that Iroas is sort of unnecessary here. His cmc is also high for an aggro deck, so additional 1 drops with menace could take his place. I feel overall this menace build wants to be very low to the ground, mostly 1 and 2 drops with some essential 3s like Sonorous Howlbonder at the top along with possibly cards like Hunted Nightmare. One drops aren't very strong unfortunately,Village Messenger Flip (gets menace after transformation) Dreadmalkin and Insolent Neonate come to mind as the best available you aren't already playing. However, at 2 Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and Relentless Dead are fairly good here. Even if relentless dead can only get itself back, that's still a decent 2 drop with some resilience to removal spells. Malkin is also a zombie, and Plague Belcher has some great synergy with relentless dead as well. You can put the counters on relentless dead and pay the B to get it back. Its pretty greedy, and the Hunted Nightmare is probably just better, but they both have downsides in their own ways. Unfortunately the good menace creatures seem to clog up the 3 spot. Rampaging Ferocidon, Sin Prodder, Grimdancer and Pestilent Spirit all fall at 3 and you cant play all of them along with Howlbonder and Hunted nightmare.

i mean heck i'd even rather run Village Messenger Flip over Fervent Champion in burn. i'd rather hope my opponent doesn't cast a spell on their turn, than pray to draw into a second champion thats only useful if the opponent still has no blockers.
