I pulled two of these at the prerelease, and had no wolves or werewolves. I was sad.

Man do I sure love Kessig Captain.

Now where is my darn Gavony Captain?!?

Love this guy, but with the obvious application of locking our werewolves in to wolf mode, we need a better mythic for werewolf tribal. Huntmaster becomes pretty meh since he's dependent on the flip mechanic.

Just awesome in wolf and werewolf decks. Some might say that he conflicts with the Huntmaster, but he works very well with all other werewolves and the Huntmaster is well worth keeping as a trampling 4/4 (well 5/5 with immerwolf) unless you really need more tokens. A couple of these and even wolf tokens are 4/4.

I take him in wolf decks and leave out the werewolf stuff. If you're playing modern, there's great fun to be had with Wolfbriar Elemental.

In my group, he's earned the nickname "I'm A Wolf." Appropriate.

Key card in a werewolf deck, totally removes the detriment of the transform mechanic. Also buffs them like a lord! 5/5

In response to Zoah, even though I know he isn't going to read this:

The back-and-forth mechanic has several advantages:

1. It has good flavor. "Oh look, I hunt delicious food." "ARGGHHH!"

2. It makes werewolves less 1-dimensional; if there were no triggers, they would basically be "Play a bad card, make it a good card, and hope it doesn't turn back".

3. It creates more ways to play, and changes assumptions, and who doesn't love that?

Don't forget he's also a regular Wolf Lord too. For that ability he's not bad.

Sadly, he sorta suffers from my idea of running Ixidron in a werewolf deck...

I'm confused by some of the comments of "it's anti-synergistic with Huntmaster of the Fells." Are they thinking that Huntmaster won't transform to his werewolf side, because he should. His side with the mana cost is a type of "human werewolf". Immerwolf says only NON-human werewolves can't transform. 5/5

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
