Ojallday on Why Are Most Hatebears so …

The comments in this tread are accurate. When a lightning bolt can remove the threat, you need to be running one. Honestly, this is a big argument I make to un-ban Hullbreacher in edh. Though, I know it isn't really constructive to say "removal takes care of it" for what you are asking. It's just a design space that has been filling out in recent years that was previously occupied by enchantments and artifacts. And honestly, I prefer them as creatures even with the mindset wizard's has of "creatures do everything". Meta wise you need to shift to strategies that make hatebearers bad (i.e. boardwipes, Jester's Cap effects to pluck bearers, or do player removal by focusing the player). They have their place like any other strategy, and can be countered.

Profet93 I agree. The very reason I have this is you guessed it, the storm meta in my playgroup. If anything, this hurts me most so I'll have to be extra careful and assess my manabase very well before dropping this. This would only makes sense to even play if I already have enough mana rocks and discounts to not bother. The Stone Brain and Jester's Cap are also worth mentioning if I just wanted to stop their wincon.

But yeah, thank you for all of your suggestions, man. I'm beginning to understand how to better optimize what this deck is trying to do.

I would cut Mirri's Guile personally. I think the card is just ok. Not great and not necessary. I started playing during Ice Age. Jester's Cap was my first ever favorite card. It also allows you to remove huge combo pieces or mass removal from anyone's library.

I would be super evil and add Jester's Cap to this.

Blazing Shoal and Shining Shoal would be cool tech for this strategy.

As for cuts:

Volcanic Salvo big CMC is useful but the card is lackluster. Greater Gargadon and Heroes Remembered are at least neat exile tech (especially with the Shoals I just suggested)

Emeria's Call  Flip the tokens are useless to this strategy and there are cheaper ways to grant indestructible.

Loxodon Warhammer and Maul of the Skyclaves for the 2 Swords I suggested. All your other equipment serve a clear purpose.

Steel Seraph is this just swiss army knife value? Angelfire Ignition at least exiles for a trigger. I'd swap Semblance Anvil for the Seraph unless I'm missing something.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell great card but I don't see it as being degenerate in this strategy. Jester's Cap can ruin the combo opponent or at the very least use other people's high CMC to feed Bell Borca.

Winds of Abandon > Contraband Livestock

SufferFromEDHD I love some of these suggestions, and some will definitely be added to the deck, just a matter of finding cuts, anything you can see that could be trimmed?

Sadly I have been unable to source Arc Blade but I love the idea of it.

Winds of Abandon I'll have to look into getting but it could be VERY effective

Chrome Mox is a big pricy for my tastes, but if it ever got reprinted and I pulled it? This is certainly the deck it'd go into.

Semblance Anvil Solid call, will have to steal from another deck but this seems legit

Jester's Cap is intriguing, but I don't know what I'd use it on to be honest, but I'm not opposed to its inclusion

The Swords will definitely make their way here, Hearth and Home is in my Equipment deck but it could come here for sure, I am yet to pull a Forge and Frontier but this is Deck #1 that is getting it.

The Soul-Guide Lantern I'm not so sure on, It's inclusion is for the mana rock capabilities AND the fact that it can mass exile should it be necessary.

All of that said, if you can find cuts, it would certainly find a home here.

Thanks for your input!

Bell Borca was such a weird card. Always wanted to build a deck but never got around to it. I like what you have going on here! Your deck has a clear theme and flows. I'm gonna spitball some ideas at you based off the direction of your list.

Arc Blade the Futuresight red counterpart to Chronomantic Escape

Winds of Abandon huge Path to Exile

Chrome Mox on theme mana rock.

Semblance Anvil another on theme mana rock.

Jester's Cap blue/black deck manipulation for Boros.

Sword of Forge and Frontier and/or Sword of Hearth and Home might be worthy upgrades to some of your current equipment.

Soul-Guide Lantern cheaper more effective version of Stonespeaker Crystal

Interesting deck, but I think it needs more protection against graveyard-hate. Especially a card like Krosan Grip is key as it doesn't allow activation of graveyard hate as a response to you killing some graveyard-hate (so it will neutralize stuff like Tormod's Crypt and Soul-Guide Lantern). You can also use a Elixir of Immortality as a reaction to someone casting a graveyard-hate spell, or you can pick out specific graveyard hate spells from someone's deck with a card like Jester's Cap.
