It's interesting to note that a Bear Cub does not get stronger as it grows up. It's just as strong as the simple Grizzly Bear and Forest Bear , the magical Runeclaw Bear , and even Balduvian Bears . Bears. As in MORE THAN ONE.
Only the Golden Bear is stronger than their army-strength cubs.
If you reconsider getting rid of Lead the Stampede , then card:Kamahl's Summons would be a very tasty card to abuse. You should consider Door of Destinies , too, as with card:Kamahl's Summons, it becomes very effective.
At least keep it in the sideboard so you can swap out when against another tribal deck, because they'll quickly and eagerly make use of your Coat of Arms .
man. this is so nice... not to mention i HAVE A THING for bears... have to agree bear cub is the cutest...
But hey, no way someone could beat Forest bear on the most funny list.. Its like how my kid brother use to draw bears. lol..
But seriously, this can whoop any deck.. just humbling to see it come from bears instead.
Good job! +1,000,000 :)
simple but great! nice deck! +1
in tribal deck wars maybe put out Coat of Arms because you'll also pump his/her creatures especially for those decks that are faster than you.
Please take a look at my decks i need some constructive feedback
This deck is stoppable by Stormtide Leviathan , in case you can't defeat your opponent in eight turns. I think you should add Cobbled Wings , or maybe Canopy Claws to the sidedeck. I don't know which card would work better.Canopy Claws is an one mana cost instant which includes flashback that costs the same.On the other hand, Cobbled Wings is a cheap equipment that could stay in battlefield forever (flying bears, LOL).
What do you think?
After playtesting a bit I'm sorry I suggested Golden Bear all that time ago. An extra 2 mana for a critter +2+1 bigger isn't worth it in a deck that routinely gives you 10/10s by turn 6 or 7. I think the extra 4-drop slows you down, with Door of Destinies already stopping you from casting a bear on turn 4. Not once did I draw a Muraganda Petroglyphs but I imagine it feels a bit underwhelming if you got out an Adaptive Automaton out and the door in your hand. I'd honestly rather have another 4x2cmc bears more. But the thing I wanted the most each game was to be able to play a 3cmc card on turn 5 along with a bear. Something like Turn 4 Forest, Door; Turn 5 Forest, Beast Within (to nuke whatever their game play is relying on), and a bear. Turn 6 Forest Bear, Bear, Bear Turn 7 Coat, bear, swing.
Golden Bear is not very good, I agree. Muraganda Petroglyphs is really useful though. Not underwhelming at all. A few cards that actually do something that may be alot better than all these 1G for a 2/2 bears: Ulvenwald Bear has an awesome trigger and can pump anything, card:Druid's Familiar is very good with 6 power for 4 mana so he's a definite, Spectral Bears for sideboard maybe, and maybe Striped Bears for cantripping fun.
Well all of those suggested bears do not work with Muraganda Petroglyphs , so maybe we agree more than you think.
I would also repeat what everyone else has been saying, Ashcoat Bear is a great choice if you eliminate the petroglyph. If you have a Door of Destinies out you can wait until your opponent chooses blockers than BAM overwhelm them.
It's okay, aloehart199. While all of these bears (except Balduvian Bears ) will probably be banned in legacy, they'll only be restricted in vintage, so you'll still be able to play them, or at least 1x of each, which should be plenty. I've got a hunch that these bears will be perfect in an explosive combo deck- move over, ANT, it's time for BAN! (BEAR-Ad Nauseam).
This is truly wonderful. The speed with which you are able to bring out such powerful creatures and thereby whittle away ever more quickly at the opponent's life points is the strong point of this deck. Its weak link, however, is its lack of defense against flying types. Versus a comparable bird deck, it would really come down to who gets the better draw more quickly. Unfortunately I am unable to suggest any specific cards that would help in this area, but it's something to consider.
I love your deck, I been playing my Humanity's Unwavering Might vs it, Your bears are the only thing that can hold my humans back for a few turns. I would love it if sometime we can get together and chat and maybe come up with a better versions are are decks.
hehehe, congratulations izik99 you just proved a point I was telling some of my friends. It doesn't matter how much the deck costs or if it has a lot of rares in it, if it works and is consistent, even the cheapest budget decks can be more powerful.
kudos to you! :D
Thanks for this. I love it! I made a similar deck using pegasuses (Look mommy, there's a pegasus in the sky). It's for my girlfriend who enjoys a good pegasus and to be played against your deck. Though I think the Coat of Arms might get out of hand. Check it out and offer any suggestions if you'd like.
I playtested this deck against my Elf Semi-Populate, and My elves beat this deck by a lot both times. The problem that the bears had was not being able to get mana fast enough to get out cards to amp the bears. What I mean is that both times the hand started with two mana, coat of arms, then some bears, and I wouldn't draw another forest for a three or so turns, by that time my elves were strong enough to wipe out the bears deck and destroy bears as they or played. I think this deck Is great though, It functions very similar to my elf deck. +1
i like the deck a lot its a neat idea. you should try playtesting against my legacy simic deck. Simic of the Coastal Combine
i tested 5 games and my deck won 3-2 but they were all very close games except for the first one where your deck beat me pretty badly.
