Uh, without a doubt Bear Cub because he is so freaking cute :3

I mean Ayula, Queen Among Bears is fine and I love her as well but who could resist the Bear Cub?

Thanks for the link!

This deck looks solid--have you used it in live play yet? What sort of Horde do you use?

I have to ask about Forced Adaptation, since it only affects one creature. May I suggest something like Fight Rigging, Ivy Lane Denizen, or maybe Dormant Grove  Flip? These all have higher mana costs, but you need something to stick the Adaptation onto anyway, and these options means you're not putting all eggs in one basket. If you have some on hand or are willing to put a little more money into this, Rancor would work as well, using Ayula, Queen Among Bears to fuel Branching Evolution.

Ayula, Queen Among Bears along with Muraganda Petroglyphs can be fun and is an entertaining deck building challenge. There’s lots of ramp strategies that could be fun in this context as long as you avoid the usual “I win” buttons like Tooth and Nail.

An obvious route could be to make a cloning deck with Riku of Two Reflections that normally makes you play somewhat equally in powerlevel.

Otherwise I would go for a niche strategy or a tribal deck - maybe Ayula, Queen Among Bears, Brion Stoutarm or Thelon of Havenwood.

It is some powerful commanders they are playing but it is still hard knowing how powerful their actual deck is without seeing a decklist, so maybe I am undershooting. But you might also be better at deckbuilding which is an factor to remember.

LunchBox1211: This seems like a spmewhat pushed uncommon. Way too complicated for a common, but neither powerful enough forva rare nor splashy enough for a mythic.

Akeyla, Queen's Missionary

Legendary Planeswalker - Akeyla

0 Create a 2/2 green bear creature token. Put a loyalty counter on ~ for each bear you control.

-8 Reveal the top X cards of your library, where X is the number of bears you control. Put all bear creature cards revealed this way onto the battlefield. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.


The queen referenced here obviously is Ayula, Queen Among Bears.

While we're at animal planeswalkers, I'd like to see a crocodile planeswalker.

After one whole night of testing, i can say this deck is pretty good if you play some Collected Company and Ayula, Queen Among Bears in it.

I'm on this list for the moment :

And with Ayula, Queen Among Bears, no need to play Muraganda Petroglyphs anymore because each new Bear entering the battlefield will now be able to give 2 +1/+1 counters to himself or another bear.

As all vanilla Bears (those affected by Muraganda Petroglyphs), in your deck are 2/2 (Grizzly and Runeclaw), a simple Bear entering the battlefield will be enough to increase them into 4/4 ==> enough power for being affected by Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma 2nd ability.

The last vanilla Bear in your deck being Alpine Grizzly has already a base P/T of 4/2 so he even don't need to be boosted by Ayula, Queen Among Bears

Summarizing : Vanilla bear + Ayula, new Bear entering the battlefield ==> Vanilla bear 4/4 for Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma

I think your deck really wants Ayula, Queen Among Bears :)

Followwing of my comment :

You can even use Ayula's Influence with Life from the Loam and some fetchlands, lands with cycling for getting lands in hand and create a 2/2 bear for chumpblock and trigger a fight by Ayula, Queen Among Bears ability allowing you to remove creatures at instant speed. The 2/2 bear token can also be used to boost another Bear with Ayula, Queen Among Bears 1st ability.

These cards could give to your deck some kind of controllish aspect pretty useful to win games !
