Standard Deck Tech: RG Werewolves

By

Red Green Werewolves Standard Deck
In a month or so we will be bidding farewell to Innistrad block as the latest big set Theros enter Standard. I’d say it was an awesome experience to play the dark Scandinavian themed set, casting Zombies and Werewolves and the Humans as the protagonist.

In this blog post, I am presenting a less popular archetype from the Innistrad block. It almost saw play in its early days after Avacyn Restored was released, but the metagame that time didn’t favored well to it. Anyhow, this is just sort of a flashback post of archetypes from Innistrad. I present to you, Red Green Werewolves:

Lands
6 Mountain
7 Forest
3 Kessig Wolf Run
4 Stomping Ground
4 Rootbound Crag

Creatures
3 Wolfbitten Captive/Krallenhorde Killer
1 Ogre Battledriver
4 Mayor of Avabruck/Howlpack Alpha
1 Instigator Gang/Wildblood Pack
2 Hellrider
3 Huntmaster of the Fells
2 Daybreak Ranger/Nightfall Predator
3 Immerwolf
4 Gatstaf Shepherd/Gatstaf Howler
4 Reckless Waif/Merciless Predator

Spells
2 Mizzium Mortars
2 Bonfire of the Damned
3 Full Moon’s Rise
2 Moonmist

I would not go into detail of each card in the list but these are the standard components as based on previous Werewolves decks before the Return to Ravnica rotation. It may not look powerful compared to other aggro decks, but I am sure it’s fun to play at your local FNM. If you’d be paying tribute to the rotating set, I’d suggest this build. Go ahead and try it out.
