Bear Umbra Discussion

AkaAkuma on +1 for you, +1 for you....

To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.

Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.

Hey Last_Laugh, thanks for the comment. While I love Crystal Vein and am mad at myself for missing that originally, I'm hesitant to use Bear Umbra solely for the fact of how little I actually attack. I'll try it out and see how it does. I've gotta say, Totem Armor does look pretty spicy with how much Muldrotha's been targeted lately.

So just thinking it through but Bear Umbra is potentially a win-con when cast on our Commander. We go side-ways generate tokens, untap all our lands, pay the five colors then do combat again. Then we generate more tokens, untap all our lands, pay the five colors and lather rinse repeat until all our opponents are dead from infinite combat steps. Bonus points if Impact Tremors is on the battlefield cause then our opponents have a really bad but short game.

Consider dropping the following: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.

Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend

There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

Mirror-Mad Phantasm is your best self mill option by far. It goes great with cards like Living Death and Living End assuming you're ok with some non-creature spells... if not then Primal Surge 100% deserves a spot for being all permanents.

Another card I've had great success with here is Bear Umbra due to the deck being a bit mana hungry and Muldrotha getting hated off the board... totem armor has saved my ass many times. I'd also run Glen Elendra Archmage and Siren Stormtamer for a little counter suite. World Shaper is also really good in self mill (I prefer it over Crucible here). I'd also try running Merciless Executioner in addition to Fleshbag Marauder, this effect is really strong here. Depending on your meta, Mystic Remora and/or Elephant Grass can be bonkers.

As far as cuts go, I'm not a huge fan of your walkers outside of LotV and Kiora, Crashing Wave. I'm also questioning your token producers like Skirsdag High Priest and Cryptbreaker just due to lack of synergy. Evil Twin is kinda meh and I'm having serious doubts over Golgari Thugs death trigger (granted you probably end up re-milling whatever you threw on top anyways). I'd also drop to 36 lands and consider running some off-color fetches.

Have you considered Crystal Vein? It can ramp up to 4 mana in one turn (or more with Azusa etc.). I've also had extremely good results out of Bear Umbra... this General can be mana hungry so that land untap is amazing here and totem armor itself is nothing to scoff at either.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback and/or upvotes are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

World Shaper is truly amazing. After a few rounds of milling with it it does crazy things. Combine it with Bear Umbra for some nuts turns.

What do you mean with „how do you test your deck?“ I simply play it a few times vs some different decks. My girlfriend is a big fan of commander too, so I can test at home. Or i go to the LGS and test it there with friends.
