Modern Hatebears

Modern forum

So, I was thinking about building Modern Hatebears, either mono white or splashing red and/or black. I managed to get my hands on 2 copies of Lurrus(one pulled, one traded for with a few $1 bulk rares), so I think Lurrus Hate could be a good build to start getting into Modern.

The problem is, it's really hard to find hatebears. So, if you would, please throw in any hatebears you know of.

Stoneforge Mystic not strictly a hatebear, but a very good card that fits into that archetype. Admittedly, very bad in a Lurrus deck.

Blood Seeker Archfiend of Depravity Archfiend of Despair lots of demons The Haunt of Hightower sort of Demons have a bunch but they arent very mana efficient Hushbringer is a fantastic card and shuts off a lot of decks.

Thanks! I guess I wasn't entirely clear, I wanted to run Lurrus so CMC 2 or less, but there's a few cards I had forgotten in here!

Thorn of Amethyst, Lodestone Golem, Chalice of the Void are some artifact hatebears. But before you starting buying up cards, note that there's a pretty high chance of Lurrus getting banned in Modern sometime in the near future.

Eh, I already have the Lurruses anyways. Two copies cost me $4 in bulk rares and getting second in a draft, so I'm not too sad if he's banned. Additionally I'm pretty sure they'll just ban Bauble, 'cos it's the older card and it enables more broken crap than Lurrus does.

And, really, I still have to save up anyhow. It'll be a year or so before I actually build the deck. Just assembling decklists so that I have a good array to choose from. :)

Most of the good hatebears have been mentioned already. Here are some more annyoing cards I can add to the list hereabove: Tithe Taker, Suppression Field, Angel of Jubilation, Eidolon of Obstruction, Eidolon of Rhetoric, True Believer, Leyline of Sanctity, Auriok Champion, Kor Firewalker and Aegis of the Gods.

Note that, though I find the archetype very cool, Hatebears - just like DnT - isn't very good in Modern. You have many degenerate strategies going around so unless you know the local meta like no one else, it'll be very hard for you to pull off results at big tournaments. Now if your goal is to have fun and/or try to win your LGS's FNM's then that's totally fine ;)

i think, best for "hatebears" (i thought its aura deck) is "kor spiritdancer", "hardened scales" , and "walking ballista" , (oh no, hatebears is , terrible, even Dimir eldrazi is better)
