Love it. Bears are just so chill. Look at Bear Cub just sittin around, looking at bees. So chill. I would add that banner or flag artifact that costs 5 and gives your creatures +1/+1 for all other creatures with the same creature type.

TikiShades says... #7

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.

rckclimber777 says... #22

It seems that Overwhelming Stampede might be better in most cases than Overrun . One coast of arms or muraganda petroglyphs gives you a bigger boost. Like the bears though.

Rampant growth would probably be a good addition, but otherwise it looks like a lot of fun.

October 13, 2011 10:42 a.m.

TikiShades says... #25

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 .

October 13, 2011 10:54 a.m.

Still missing Overwhelming Stampede , AEther Vial and maybe something to draw more cards when you've played them all?

October 14, 2011 1:14 p.m.

yyuyyy says... #39

AEther Vial would suck.... Only 3 cmcs in this deck! you could try Brass Herald

October 14, 2011 6:15 p.m.

Mecatolrex says... #40

Check the wording of AEther Vial , MAY put charge counters. Meaning you stop at 2 counters and you can tap it and put 1 of the 20 bears that have a cmc of 2 into play. Awesome turn 2 drop for this deck, which is also awesome.

October 14, 2011 6:20 p.m.

October 15, 2011 4:26 a.m.

NinjaChipmunk says... #47

Yeah, I appreciate the Muraganda Petroglyphs point. However, you should definitely run card:Kamahl's Summons and Bearscape .

October 15, 2011 6:16 a.m.

You want to get out the Door of Destinies reliably on turn 4 or earlier, so some mana ramp or more lands to ensure enough land draws would work wonders for this unbearably strong deck.

October 15, 2011 10:19 a.m.

pretty neat idea wonder howed it fair in tournament +1 from me

October 16, 2011 2:23 a.m.

I'd play Caller of the Claw to give you an out against Wrath of God. He's an elf, but summons bears, so that should work flavor-wise. Also with that lopsided mana curve I'd play Aether Vial Maindeck.

The almost endless supply of 2/2's really lays down the aggro! This deck is amazing, it's almost unstoppable. If only they could have trample, but I guess Muraganda Petroglyphs is kind of necessary.

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?

December 6, 2011 2:02 p.m.

chowline says... #104

This deck is pretty cool, the only problem i can find is that you need Overwhelming Stampede just to fend off against mass token decks where they can block your bear with weak creatures

August 9, 2012 7:49 a.m.

thegeekguy says... #115

some creature suggestions: Werebear, ulvenwald bear, striped bears, razorclaw bear.Definitely add druids familiar and ashcoat bear.maybe sideboard spectral bear and pale bear.also maybe Grizzly Fate

August 9, 2012 8:04 a.m.

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.

Further on removal I was thinking Prey Upon or even Ulvenwald Tracker might help round the deck out?

As for the whipe comments, I was thinking Fresh Meat could work well but why have that when you can have Caller of the Claw and Coat of Arms ? Waaaay better.

August 9, 2012 9:46 p.m.

vishnarg says... #117

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.

August 9, 2012 10 p.m.

vishnarg says... #118

Also, Ashcoat Bear is strictly better than all the 2/2 Grizzly Bears because it can be flashed in. Maybe when they're attacking.... could be useful.

August 9, 2012 10:02 p.m.

vishnarg says... #119

I would get rid of Balduvian Bears for Ashcoat because he has the worst art.

August 9, 2012 10:03 p.m.

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.

August 9, 2012 10:06 p.m.

vishnarg says... #121

August 11, 2012 11:25 a.m.

doinitwrong says... #125

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).

August 11, 2012 12:04 p.m.

GoodPilgrim says... #128

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.

August 11, 2012 2:23 p.m.

doinitwrong says... #132

You forgot Balduvian Bears, which I'm pretty sure is gazing in awe at Golden Bear's dance skills. Also, just to nitpick, Grizzly Bear came first so Runeclaw bear is the one doing the copying.

August 11, 2012 2:30 p.m.

Its an amazing deck, but my friend just made proxies of it and i beat him with my (budget) The Hunt of Flames deck. It doesnt even have the Huntmaster, but i still beat it :)

August 18, 2012 9:41 a.m.

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.

This. Deck. Is. Awesome.I agree with Werebear , it ends up being a 4/4 anyway, so the Muraganda Petroglyphs doesn't affect it for the most part. It also ends up being able to get you mana, and the cost isn't any more than the other bears.

ZarBluestar says... #182

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

You should play 9th edition Grizzly Bears because flavor text is clutch in a deck like this. In case you're wondering: "Don't try to outrun one of Dominaria's grizzlies; it'll catch you, knock you down, and eat you. Of course, you could run up a tree. In that case you'll get a nice view before it knocks the tree down and eats you."

October 14, 2014 9:26 p.m.

Lukus says... #238

This deck is nothing short of a work of art. I second the need for Alpine Grizzly - as well as, for the 'tournament version', Cavern of Souls and Mutavault in the land base ;).

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.

benholland says... #240

I made some modifications to help me try to beat a very good white flying deck with a planeswalker. This bear deck is powerful but can't block flying with a planewalker backing it sometimes. I don't claim to be a great player but just needed the additional help through doing the following:

Garruk, Apex Predator only needs +1 to kill target planeswalker. Can also buff for +5/+5 on any bear. Opponent gets an emblem. You can get this too. The card is called Garruk, Apex Predator, Emblem. This planeswalker requires 1 black mana in addition to Bear Deck's Green.

Lands. I am using different lands. Namely taplands. Jungle Hollow gives you +1 life and you can tap for black or green and be able to play Garruck.

For flying you can cast the instant Plummet . It can destroy most white flying creatures. 1 is enough to kill whatever gets big.

If you don't have all the bear creatures Words of Wilding can play a +2/+2 bear on your next turn. So if you use this you might get some "Bear Token". You can easily end up playing 4 of these in 4 turns.

There is a very good thread on the best of Forest art if you search for it and I would suggest 1 of each of them instead of using a complete Jungle Hollow land stack. Also put in a few Sapseep Forest and Llanowar Wastes (but loose 1 life so as not to be completely bad to your opponent) for variety. These can also bring out the planeswalker because they can tap for a single black.

Hope this helps.

November 3, 2014 1:01 p.m.

what if you took off bear umbra and added two forests?

November 9, 2014 11:46 a.m.

benholland says... #242

I don't think you honestly need more forests because the deck is maxed out at 5 mana with Coat of Arms. Look closely at coat of arms. It grants huge gains to large numbers of bears. Keep as many bears out as possible, lay that down and its game over unless they have a really good hand.

November 10, 2014 1:17 p.m.

Honestly most of the cards in your sideboard should be in your maybe board except for Caller of the Claw and Words of Wilding, which I would put in as a 1 or 2-of mainboard.

Your sideboard is for cards you'll play when you need a new strategy, right? So, what are you weak to? Flying? Try Windstorm. Creatures keep getting killer? Try Fecundity etc. etc.

November 10, 2014 7:19 p.m.

polar says... #244

If anyone tries to make this deck "practical" with the addition of cards that do not directly support the vanilla bears, make bear tokens, or have a bear in the art, then they must be put to death for heresy. Hairesy? Bearecy? On a side note, I really think that bear tribal needs to get its shit together. I mean Bearscape and Werebear have negativesynergy.

MinscAndBoo says... #246

November 22, 2014 8:49 p.m.

Sylvan Library + Words of Wilding is a killer combo. Use the Wilding effect three times during your upkeep, turn your draw step into three bears. So three mana three 2/2 beats per turn. Worth it. Especially with Coat of Arms. I use this in my bear deck and I checked it with a judge so I'm certain it works. Just you gotta be clear that you do the wilding thing before the cards enter your hand, because let's say you try to make 2 bears & draw a card, you'll either have to pay the life of top deck it since it'll be the only card that entered your hand this turn.

February 3, 2015 10:38 a.m.

polar says... #251

3n3rgy2 you can still tap Mutavault for mana when it is a creature and it still possesses its second ability as well, so it would not receive any benefits from Muraganda Petroglyphs. Still not a bad idea to add to a deck like this.

February 3, 2015 4:19 p.m.

3n3rgy2 says... #252

I am building this but I am mainboarding 2 Sylvan Library and 2 Words of Wilding as well as 2 copies of Caller of the Claw and one or two main board Giant Growth because big bears. And I dropped to 2 Coat of Arms and one Hall of Triumphfor my buffs. If I had money and hated my wallet I'd use 4Cavern of Souls and 1 Gaea's Cradle and its fairly good against some decks! Bear Cub is the MVP of this deck. GO BEAR-FORCE ONE!

February 4, 2015 6:52 a.m.

espercharm says... #259

This deck is so good. It beat every deck I tested it againts except my ur gobins and skaabs deck. The only problem is it is slow so decks like storm and sneak and show can beat it almost 1 percent of the time. Of cource storm and sneak and show are less scary when your opponent has 11 creatures with 42 power. Nice job.
