Building on a Budget – The Wild Hunt (Combo Deck)

So, another article about budget building and having fun with Multiplayer. This time I am going to talk about a deck that I actually have built, and played. I called it simply, The Wild Hunt.

Now, what is the Wild Hunt you might be asking? Well, its a Wolf Deck, built around the theme of Elves and their Wolfish allies. Originally this deck was Mono Green and it worked quite well (to the point where people apparently hate it when I play this) but now I am splashing blue, for a very specific reason.

How does this help a wolf deck you ask?

Well the basic premise of the deck is as follows: You use a bunch of elves to either produce mana (ramp up) or create wolves. Thats all. Then you use a few other cards to get the kill.

Here is the decklist:

4 Elvish Harbinger
4 Joraga Treespeaker
4 Llanowar Elves
3 Wolf-Skull Shaman
3 Wolfbriar Elemental
2 Wren’s Run Packmaster
2 Turntimber Ranger

4 Artificial Evolution
4 Howl of the Night Pack
3 Fable of Wolf and Owl
3 Beastmaster Ascension
2 Primal Rage

18 Forest
4 Simic Growth Chamber

So how does the deck work you ask? Well without the “combo” you can still get lots of wolves. But there are 2 main combos in the deck.

First up is the following:

What you do is play the Artificial Evolution and change the trigger of “Ally” on the Ranger to the word “Wolf”. Then, simply make a single wolf (the Packmaster is good for this). The instant you do that the Ranger fires off creating as many wolves as you want, for as long as you want. Infinite Wolves basically. Once you have all those wolves (with Deathtouch!) you can then cram them into an opponents face.

Second combo is a little different:

How does this one work? Well, you take the Evolution and you target the Treespeaker after the Treespeaker has been leveled to 5. You then change “Elves” to “Wolves” thus giving all your wolves the ability to tap for GG. Then, using the wolves AND elves (you did play 2 Treespeakers right?) to generate massive amounts of green mana, you drop a Wolfbriar Elemental and end up with double your wolves at the LEAST.

Now you are prolly saying “How are you gonna get these components?”. Well thats where the Elvish Harbinger comes in. Firstly and most importantly it lets you hunt for any elf you want (Hi Packmaster!) and secondly it taps for ANY color mana (HEY BLUE HOW ARE YOU!). You will most likely draw into one of the Evolutions, and if you never do, you will STILL make a ton of Wolves (trust me, Howl of the Night Pack is awesome for this).

So there you go, another budget Multiplayer deck that I personally run, and am very happy with! Let me know if you have any fancy decks, and in a week I intend to post another wacky deck for you all to mull over.
