Didn't looke too close but in general you should choose less cards and play 4 copys of most of them. A particular thing: Runeclaw Bear is a 2 mana 2/2 without any extras, Swordwise Centaur is a 2 mana 3/2 without any extras. You should definately play 4 Swordwise Centaur and no Runeclaw Bear.
I know that this isn't really the goal of this deck... but another direction you could take with this "DRAGONS!" idea is a deck using either BlueRed or BlueWhiteRed with Dragonstorm. What I like about Dragonstorm is that you can do multiple rituals (Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Desperate Ritual, etc.) into a Dragonstorm for about 3 or 4 and just get tons of sweet dragons. Runeclaw Bear in mind (haha, pun intended...) that this deck goes off turn 4-5, but cannot bear (okay, I will stop now) counter-heavy decks or decks with hand attack (I'm looking at you, 8Rack). To improve this deck, though, I would suggest Arbor Elf as it gives us access to more colors, fewer Steel Hellkites and more ramp (Rampant Growth, Cultivate, etc.) Journey to Nowhere or Oblivion Ring could maybe work in the sideboard too. Slagstorm/Pyroclasm/Volcanic Fallout and some Ancient Grudge in the SB while you're at it. If you are using Sakura-Tribe Scout, maybe either use fewer than 4 or add more lands; up to 27 is fine since you are doing tons of filtering. Also, "fetches" like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse help take lands out of your deck. Lifelands from the Khans set could help us a bit since we are pretty slow getting started; maybe try 3-4 of Wind-Scarred Crag/Blossoming Sands/Rugged Highlands. Just test it out and see what works. Sweet deck though, +1
I've always wanted to play this deck, but don't play Legacy. So, I took matters into my own hands and made a modern-legal version. Little did I know that only two literal bears are legal in the modern format - Grizzly Bears and Runeclaw Bear . I still managed to make it work pretty well, as far as casual decks go. Also, my version has Bear's Companion , representing Timothy Treadwell from 'Grizzly Man'. Check it out here: Grizzly Man.
Nah, Grizzly Bears is too OP for limited formats, and Wizards knows it. They've toned it down a bit with Runeclaw Bear to balance the color pie a little. Something something also Storm Crow blah blah I'm really tired sorry
