A couple changes I am doing to the deck:

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn for Akroma's Memorial I know not on theme but cool as crap

Anguished Unmaking for Crib Swap

Primal Rage for Vigor

Behind the Scenes for Behemoth Sledge

Fell the Mighty for Terminus

Optimator on Bastards on Parade

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:


Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.

Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route


Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,

Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.


Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.

Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

I have a Drove of Elves I'm not using

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

@jakenickel - ouch! sorry, but aside from being expensive, those card would only draw hate from all players on the table, especially Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger .. thanks for the suggestion anyway..

@lola82600 - Thanks for the suggestions.. If you can check the older version of this deck thru the updates, i had Ghostly Prison in this deck before.. I cut it because, every time I play it, it doesn't feel like it doesn't belong in a creature majority deck like mine.. I'd rather pillowfort using high toughness creatures, and making opponents think twice in attacking me.. The other 2 suggestions can be useful though, but it feels less effective if i replace other creatures in the deck already..

@ZXddgsw12 - I think, although this deck is creature-based deck, it doesn't benefit as much as it would a token deck.. plus I can't replace any of the cards for it, I might include Primal Rage rather than that.. but thanks anyway for the suggestions!

Rossa on Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig for Bleeding Cool

Hello! Nylea, God of the Hunt instead of Primal Rage ? Since it is a creature it can add +1/+1 to Yorvo, indestructible, can pump up power.

Don't you need a way to push through chump blockers? probably cards like Primal Rage would help..

In a token deck Huatli, Radiant Champion + Wild Beastmaster + Primal Rage can be devastating.

Demarge on UnBEARably Green

Life from the Loam with the green cycle lands would be a decent card advantage engine while also making your Ayula's Influence a more potent threat.

as for cuts Lightning Greaves actually shuts off your commander's ability to target the bear equipped with it ( Swiftfoot Boots does work though), now the Doubling Season type enchantments could all be cut, you may find yourself making a lot of tokens and doubling counters does sound nice, but honestly they could result in a lackluster result for their cost and card slot. Colossal Majesty and Primal Rage also both are likely too slow or too weak to really be as useful as you'd want.

Now for bear flavor I'm surprised you're not running Savage Swipe as it's just a straight upgrade to Prey Upon in function and bear art. (even if it's power isn't 2 when you cast the spell it will still fight, just not get the pump effect.

As for strengthening the deck I'd almost suggest looking at how Yisan, the Wanderer Bard decks run their toolbox of answers to things.
