ForestBearStudios Deckling

Greetings, we are Forest Bear Studios.

We create weekly gameplay videos of a variety of Magic formats in paper cards on Youtube. Our main format is Modern, but we also play Pauper, Legacy, Vintage, and our custom format Middle-Class Magic.

Middle-Class Magic is a fairly simple format based on Pauper. It includes basic lands and any card that was at one point printed at uncommon, and adds on the Legacy banlist so cards like Stripmine or Library of Alexandria don't rule the format. The format is a balance of powerful spells and horrible mana fixing that is very fun to play.
Set Wars is a smaller format that we have done on occasion. Decks in Set Wars can only utilize cards from a single set, such as "Shards of Alara" or "New Phyrexia." It is not like Block Constructed, as a deck of "Zendikar" could face off against "Homelands" or any other pair of sets could face off. While similar to Shelf, it is a lot more restrictive than a whole standard era, giving a deck only 250~ or so cards to build the deck out of.

Sligo, Thanks a lot! It's wonderful that you do that! :)In terms of our more expensive cards, it's more that we've been collecting and playing Magic for far longer than we've been filming it, and we just accumulated a pretty solid joint collection over the years. I'm called Chubby because it was originally my Xbox gamer-tag before we started Forest Bear Studios (A Chubby Fellow) and it just sort of carried over. It was never a descriptive name, I just found it funny on Xbox Live when you'd have messages on screen like "You were killed by A Chubby Fellow" haha. Thanks again! Hopefully we can continue to keep you guys entertained :p

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!! i have been a regular watcher of your show since the first time you featured, your version of [scapeshift] (personally i don't like running blue but i'm not much of a brewer) any who i work with at-risk adults in their home and each Sunday morning i assist a young men with autism with his breakfast and for over a year now we have watched one of your plains-walker duels, my favorite episode was the "unset" 50th video special, was the few times your viewers get a sense of what y'all look like. question: did chubby take out a mortgage for a black lotus? why is chubby called chubby? (you dont look like a "big guy", but then again I'm american and well we may have a different definition of what "big" is.) are you ever gonna play with unsets again. over time your show has grown and consistently improved, that it thanks for all the entertainment

kalko - There are 4 actually lol. But the deck really doesn't require more than that honestly.
