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.
+1 from me.
this deck is incredible, and cheap haha. +1 from me!
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.
I LOVE BEARS NOW! Why aren't you using Adaptive Automaton , though?
lol sick deck, ditto on the Adaptive Automaton
lol sick deck, ditto on the Adaptive Automaton
Rampant growth would probably be a good addition, but otherwise it looks like a lot of fun.
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 .
Although i love bears, i think the unicorn deck i saw might replace it as the best deck ever.
THANK all of you for the comments keep them comming.
lol EPIC deck mate +1 instantly now make me a fish deck please lol always wanted one or to see one! :-p
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.
o.o I often misread cards. sorry to that guy....
in that case its an amazing card and a 1 drop!
Splash blue for Phantasmal Bear , he's a Bear Illusion, what's not to like!?
he wants bears without abilities but they are nice bears lol
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.
I think you just broke Magic.
I mean...this is just too powerful.
pretty neat idea wonder howed it fair in tournament +1 from me
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.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Maybe something about honey. I don't know. Anyways, I really love the deck. It's simple, yet complicated.
oh wow +1, I'm going to try to make this I think, but maybe with some cheaper cards instead of the rares
play tested this deck. WOW.....maybe 6 bears out and they were 19/19. GREAT WORK
There is a bear in timespiral with flash, that is 2/2 for 1G... just a thought.
Yeah, that's Ashcoat Bear , but he can't use it because the petroglyphs won't buff it.
Also, have you considered Wild Pair ?
I meant to say before that he should re-add Lead the Stampede for card:Kamahl's Summons abuse.
Want to check my decks out? I see that you also know legacy is awesome. I like having a huge selection of cards. BTW try Mythic Proportions
I couldn't get some of the bears because they were from portal :(
I might take Golden Bear out cause on turn 4+ you'll probably never wanna play him with all the other 4 cost goodies lol
Then you'll have 60 cards
Why not use Ashcoat Bear as well. I mean, it's got flash and still costs 2cmc which is a nice bonus.
Pure awesomeness! This deck is too much that I can't "BEAR" it!
This deck is full of lolz. +1
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.
card:Akroma's Memorial and make them flying commando bears. The right to BEAR arms!
I'd drop the peroglyphs for those. I'd love to see the other persons face when that card drops.
hello please comment on my page i need your feedback to make this deck more effective thanks.. deck:green-black-elf-deck-legacy-mtg-deck
I beat it with my Eldrazi Mill Deck but seriously it kicked the butt of every other deck I can think of great job! Love the Flavor! Bear cub is adorable! +1
Omg, I BEARly believed it. I'll have to go to the MAUL and get this honey-sweet deck. +1
hello please comment on my page i need your feedback to make this deck more effective thanks.. deck:green-black-elf-deck-legacy-mtg-deck
When i saw the 400 variations of the 2/2 bear i just had to +1.
pretty damn cool :D. ill have to give that a shot sometime. simple, but bastardly.
Is it just me or is it really funny that all of the ads on this page as im looking at it are about smokey the bear???? Coincidence?????? hmmmm...
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 :)
Don't know what this could do versus a well-constructed black-blue aggro, but nice deck
I hate how many people comment on this page, because every day, I have about 10 notifications from this deck. gfjkasd XD
i like it it works and its pretty fast like elves i would recommend some Overwhelming stampedes or some overruns to make it faster and to give everything of yours trample
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
Why not to use Doubling Chant ?
PS: I do really love your deck. Seriously, I want to marry it. :3
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?
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
engineer explosives would have a field day. there isnt any better bears?
i play a cavarn in my turbofog (no creatures) just so i could name hippogryph. though it might actually be worth it in here to play at least 2
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
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.
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.
I would get rid of Balduvian Bears for Ashcoat because he has the worst art.
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.
Okay well I didn't realize Muraganda Petroglyphs was chosen over all those guys...
I made my own version: deck:little-winnie-berenstein-and-the-big-blue-house
I agree. I REALLY like this. Finally, a use for creatures without effects! +1
WTF!!!! this is some pure BULL, half these dang cards should have been banned by now. This deck is broken and is going to represent at least 80% of legacy decklists from here on. THANK YOU FOR DESTROYING THE BEST MAGIC FORMAT YOU DOUCHE.
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).
Actually, they wouldn't restrict Bear Cub , that'd just be inhumane and would make bears an endangered species.
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.
Look at those bear mothafuckas, so chill. Forest bear is all "come at me fucka" and baby bear is all chill lookin at bee's 'n shit. Grizzly bear is tryin to copy runeclaw bear and golden bear is all "check me out fuckas! doin the thrilla".
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.
Aw hell nah. You did not just come fuck up mah comments. Grizzly bear is a cheap ass mothafucka so he cant afford his own moves.
Ok, believe what you want. I guess my affection for Grizz is just my age showing (when I first started playing magic, they still made cards with Banding!)
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.
I hate to say this, but Balduvian Bears doesn't share a creature type with any of the other cards. Its creature type is "Bears" not "Bear"
I can BEARly believe how cool this deck is. Good job,
Ah-Ha-Ha, i get it.
Have you tested it against a mono blue control that always cancels and returns? Other then that..... BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!O.o
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 :)
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
Nicholasgambit666 thanks! i definetely didnt think it woulld happen myself :D
This deck puts MTG on Steven Colbert's Threatdown. o.0
Why does Golden Bears display as Brimstone Volley in the deck?
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.
ShadowDrDoom - Balduvian Bears is a bear - http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=2550
You Won't Have To Play Dead With These Bears is my mono-green bear control deck. ;)
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.
Not only is it fun, but is seems to be VERY potent too... Best.deck.ever.
dem bears.... :D I love it! +1
Wow, only 27 upvotes away from being the highest scoring deck on TappedOut! Great Job!
CHARGING DOWN THE RAVINE.
EYES GLOWING BRIGHT AS THEY TEAR OUT YOUR SPLEEEEN.
@aloehart199 sadly Grand Illusion. Almost though!
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
Drop the A and get an E! Other than that this deck is damn fine!
Truly awesome deck. This looks like alot of fun. Maybe not as ridiculously dominant as some elf decks, or goblin decks, but still fantastic. +1 from me.
I found this deck while searching for a elf token deck XD. Definitely going to make this instead of a elf token deck its unBEARable good.
I GOT IT :P Alpha Status see where this is going?...
YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!! found a good card for a hybrid Cursed Totem
500th upvote! But seriously, this deck is so much fun! I was playtesting it and had like 5 20/20's
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.
Yeah, I know you're deck is cool and stuff but my deck beat it. So yeah, your deck is not the best deck, second best maybe. TAP- FLASH- BOOM represent.
anonymousperson184: It's not the best deck ever because it wins a ton, it's the best deck ever because it is a work of art
nice deck hows mine http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/infinite-extortion-2/
This deck now has the most upvotes on tappedout. Congratulations!
It looks derpy from the home page, but when I play-tested it against one of my decks, it absolutely slaughtered it, every time.
Props to you dude, this is really cool ;P.
Two words not beautiful... Almost
Do not add Descendants' Path as this could get rid of all the spells
I love this deck! Only problem I see is there is an absence of defense when it comes to flying. BUT I LOVE IT
the Petroglyphs won't affect Adaptive Automaton though because it has abilities. it'll affect the rest of DAAAH BEARS though
Not mosswort by then you would have already win plus not really any good cards in this deck just bears
seriously, add Werebear ; it adds mana to your mana pool.
Any set of 20 of a rarely used creature type is amazing with an Adaptive Automaton .
Great deck +1 From Me
It would be awesome if you would check out my elf deck Mono Green Elf Deck and see if you could give me any suggestions. I would love input from smart mtg players.
I like the bears but I feel that it lacks trample and you'd be screwed against a board wipe +1 though
there should not be this many bears its unbearable
You should put in Lost in the Woods, you have no defense~!
I never wanted to steel someone else's idea until now. Humor factor alone get's +1 from me.
BEAR Deck Eva!!! ( Bear Pun's Are Funny Here? Right?? ) Well Anyway +1 I Want To Make This Deck So Badly :D
Drop of Honey ? You Know Cause Bears Like Honey......
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."
How do you not have Werebear in here? Besides being a sweet bear, it ramps green mana... and the flavor text!!!!
I LOVE BEARS!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. If anyone would take a look at my red green fatties, NEEDS SUGESTIONS deck it would be greatly apreciated.
i finally built the whole thing. wasnt as cheap as expected and i dont play it (well maybe in casual some day) but i LOVE looking at it :)
PepsiAddicted that is badass. I can't believe someone actually built this, lol I wish I owned it...
i could not believe how hard it is to get bear cub.
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.
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.
what if you took off bear umbra and added two forests?
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.
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.
