Maybe considering some mana dorks, they would help speed up your gameplan. Also, Surrak Dragonclaw would be a pretty cool inclusion.

Now... I know you said no blue, but... in no way are you obligated to go a control route (could in fact throw off your opponents thinking you are indeed playing control when you're not. )

There's some ideas to think about at least. As for what goes in them, that's up to you. These are the most aggro-ey "mess with your stuff if you mess with mine" commanders I could think of.

Hope it helps, enjoy!

as a fan of bearforce tribal i can't say that there is one bear in whole mtg that can be used as a good utility for bear commander. reason for that is that the only bear legendary creature has no synergy. the best comanders for bear tribal i find are Yeva, Nature's Herald, Kaysa, Surrak Dragonclaw, Karametra, God of Harvests, for the rest i don't realy see any use of other commanders to play an bear tribal edh yet. also about the creature lineup everyone has his own creature lineup and i like that to stay that way. about the artifacts i would try to reconsider Coat of Arms good card for tribal decks but i m not sure bears need the help for this. i rather boost them whit a +1/+1 counter or card that gives it. in the decks i played Words of Wilding didn't perform well at all. i had to less draw power to make that card valueble. also about Bear Umbra do you realy want your lands to get untapped. i don't realy see anything in green for a bear tribal deck that would need this card at all. Insist been debating about insist but in all my matchups i never had a use for it except to draw a card. about the rest i don't realy have much to say its a preference. also if u are intrested to the build i came up whit (its bear tribal but not all cards have a bear on them).Kaysa The Bearforce tamer

This looks like a really good first draft! There are a few suggestions I'd like to make.

First, I'm not sure if Riku is the best commander for this deck. He'll make tokens for all of your creatures, but none of those tokens will get to transform. That having been said, you do have a few cards, like Parallel Evolution and Parallel Lives that play well with him. But I think removing the token theme altogether will give you a more streamlined deck. Although you should always run Rite of Replication, imo. In the spirit of keeping with your Blue/Green/Red colors, I'd recommend Surrak Dragonclaw. It's most likely you'll want to win games by getting in with creature damage, and giving everything Trample is a great way to make sure you'll be able to connect your swings. Protecting your creatures from counterspells is a nice little bonus.

I also think you're running too many lands. You should probably only have between 38-42. If you're worried about mana problems, run a few ramp spells, like Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation.

Werewolves are a small tribe, and don't get as much love as other tribes, but there are a few cards that you could add still. Lambholt Elder  Flip, Afflicted Deserter  Flip, Scorned Villager  Flip, Wolfbitten Captive  Flip, and Kessig Forgemaster  Flip would all make welcome (not to mention inexpensive) additions. Since you're running Blue, you could also justify putting in a few more clone creatures like Altered Ego. Check out Phantasmal Image, Quicksilver Gargantuan, and, of course, Clone. There are a number of these kinds of creatures you could include if you're willing to look into them. The best part? If they enter as a copy of a transformed werewolf, if something would cause them to flip back to human, they remain in wolf form instead! Also, consider Alpha Brawl. It's very on theme, and, more importantly, it's really funny.

I'd also recommend adding some answers to your opponent's threats to your deck. You have a couple of ways of dealing with creatures, but against artifacts, token armies, and decks that rely on fliers, you might have a hard time. Check out Ancient Grudge, Vandalblast, Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Blasphemous Act as potential answers, or consider other options you might have.

Also, this is just a footnote, but I'm not quite sure what Bonus Round does for your deck? It only interacts with seven other cards in your current decklist, and of those, only three are really worth spending the extra mana on. I think it's an easy cut.

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

Seems like removing Swordtooth for Surrak Dragonclaw wouls be a good thing to me. It'd require splashing blue and therefore making your manabase more clunky and expensive, but I'm sure it'd be better that way. With Goreclaw on the board, Surrak basically costs you

I see you have Derevi, Empyrial Tactician in your maybe board. You should definitely move him to the main board. His value is ridiculously strong.

Other cards I would recommend that won't necessarily break the bank: Bear Umbra, Kindred Discovery , Reconnaissance, Shared Animosity, Path to Exile, Cyclonic Rift, Yasova Dragonclaw, Eternal Witness, Vandalblast, Shattering Spree, and By Force.

Reconnaissance is truly an all star. It allows you to swing with everything, then remove them from combat AFTER their damage goes through but BEFORE your opponents damage goes through. It's like vigilance, only 10x better. Plus allows you to tap them for mana to things like Cryptolith Rite.

One sided board wipes, clears, or artifact removal, or even just spot removal is always a good thing. Though it might more depend on the meta you play in, the need for those cards.

Eternal Witness can get you your cards back. 'Nuff said? Yasova Dragonclaw can steal some fun things. Shared Animosity can get ridiculous, real quick. It's like a cheaper Coat of Arms (but slightly worse, but only goes for your things...so...you know). Kindred Discovery is a great card draw engine.

And lastly Bear Umbra. Use your mana to cast. Attack. Use your mana to take infinite combats. It's like Sword of Feast and Famine, except it does less and costs significantly less $$$$$.

Obviously, to increase the consistency of your deck, tutors. And a more expensive landbase. But you said your budget is $150. So most tutors are already out. However, if you decide you want to sink way too much money into it, Tutors are easy, no brainer, inclusions

Now the hard part. What do you cut to put things in that maybe help you combo, or make your stuff bigger, all of a sudden, or just to provide value?

My recommendations for that, mostly based on high CMC or not providing as much value as something else: Zealous Conscripts, Surrak Dragonclaw, Stonehoof Chieftain, Lovisa Coldeyes, Jazal Goldmane, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Blaring Recruiter, and Blaring Captain.

Of course, all of these are just suggestions. If you like the way a card interacts with the deck, or you think it's just fun to play, keep it! It's just a game, designed for people to have fun with. And all that matters is that you have fun with playing your deck. Best of luck to you in all your future games, I love Najeela. She's a lot of fun, and almost no one like to see her across the table from them.
