Waxing Moon Discussion

Final recommendations:

replace Waxing Moon with Moonmist , keep same number.

replace Howlpack Resurgence with Immerwolf , keep same number, or take 2 of each.

replace Lambholt Pacifist  Flip with Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, keep same number.

drop 1 Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, drop 1 Neglected Heirloom  Flip, take 2 Instigator Gang  Flip

replace Shrill Howler  Flip with 3 Kruin Outlaw  Flip

replace Kessig Prowler  Flip with 3 Kessig Forgemaster  Flip (bit higher cost to play but is good at taking out tougher blockers)

consider dropping 2 Geier Reach Bandit  Flip for 2 Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip, get extra card draw without flooding yourself with too many cards that transform your wolves, since they dont stack. Else, you could instead add 2 Cindervines to deal damage and destroy something important in a pinch.

6 The Hierophant: Grand Arbiter Augustin IV .

7 The Lovers: Pia and Kiran Nalaar shows it best, in my opinion. Other options might be Anax and Cymede or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis .

12 Strength: Jolrael, Empress of Beasts or Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse .

17 The Tower: Sentinel Tower , or maybe Tower of Champions or Dynavolt Tower .

19 The Moon: Full Moon's Rise or Howling Wolf . Waxing Moon would be better if the moon was more in focus.

More thoughts to come.

Do you have multiple copies of some of the cards? Gatstaf Shepherd  Flip and Village Ironsmith  Flip can easily be switched out for a couple more Scorned Villager  Flips, and I would drop the Waxing Moon s for another Moonmist and Howlpack Resurgence for consistency.

Werewolves are definitely one of the flashier tribes. Have fun with them!

I haven't run this through any playtests, but at first glance, it seems to have a decent curve, some interaction / protection, and several anthem effects. Can you give more of an idea of what makes it feel like something's missing? Are you running into snags while playtesting?

Otherwise, just a couple general comments: I feel like Lambholt Elder  Flip and Mondronen Shaman  Flip are a bit weak. I'd replace them with a stronger creature (see below). And while I like the transformed side of Kruin Outlaw  Flip giving menace to all your dudes, that double red worries me. Have you had trouble casting it on T3? I also don't know if I'm a fan of Instigator Gang  Flip. Maybe I'd feel differently if I playtested it, but +1 to attackers seems low impact for 4 CMC. Sure, you get +3 at some point, but I'd evaluate it more on its front face.

If you were to cut any of those (potentially up to 9), here's some possible additions:

  • As a 4 CMC replacement for Instigator Gang, Nightpack Ambusher is both an offensive and defensive buff, and its flash speed allows it to be a combat trick as well as allowing you to better control which turn spells are played on for transform. Finally, it can generate you some bodies.

  • For similar reasons, Spirit of the Hunt can be a good 3 CMC replacement.

  • Speaking of 3 CMC, not a creature but Howlpack Resurgence is strong. Again with the flash, but in addition to the buff, you get trample, which can be really important in some matchups.

  • Speaking of trample, Waxing Moon is another way to get it. This might be better as a sideboard card, though, if you ever end up adding one.

  • And lastly, speaking of a sideboard, Silverfur Partisan might be good against certain matchups that want to one-for-one your creatures with kill/bounce effects. Full on hexproof would be better, but this at least makes the transaction more in your favor.

Finally, as an upgrade to the manabase, I'd replace Kazandu Refuge with one that doesn't enter tapped. Lots of options to choose from, but some of the better ones are Copperline Gorge, Fire-Lit Thicket (cheaper now thanks to its Double Masters reprint!), Grove of the Burnwillows, and of course Stomping Ground. Any of those could replace Karplusan Forest as well.

Hope some of this helps! +1 from me.

Thank you for the suggestions, unfortunately Waxing Moon wouldn’t work; it only targets a single werewolf and this deck is made to target Zada and therefore, target every other creature I control. On that same note, Ram Through wouldn’t work either as it targets one of our creatures as well as one of our opponents, and Zada’s text says “instant or sorcery that targets ONLY Zada”, Crash Through is an ok cantrip but it lacks utility in that it is sorcery speed and it doesn’t target a specific Creature. Appeal is in this deck instead of Crash Through because it can Target Zada, therefore making all of our creatures trampling and beefy.

The Dreadwolf

Legendary Creature - Wolf Horror

When you cast ~, create two 2/2 green Wolf Horror creature tokens with deathtouch.

Flash, deathtouch, trample

also idk if this would be a good rare/mythic

keep doing this challenge, and/or make another legendary wolf

Really cool deck. Not really sure if these will fit with the deck, but I have a few possible card suggestions. If you’re going all in with werewolves (not sure if you are), then Waxing Moon seems really nice here, and Ram Through might also be quite good. As another cantrip, maybe consider Crash Through, giving your whole board trample might just be good to finish a game. I hope this is helpful to you.
