Hello welcome to the marking of create a card 215.

The marking criteria.

No matter how good or bad the card, it will not be considered if these criteria are not met

Must be a bear
Must be a 2/2 creature

Criteria that gain bonus points

Has additional abilities, which reflects the skills the bears have learned throughout year’s combat

Has an ability that reflects the ability to strike fear into other bears (most people missed this one.)

Has the feel of a bear champion

How well balanced a card I feel this is.

Submission 1 - Livermush
Philip, Bear Ascended | GW
Planeswalker Creature - Philip (Mythic)

Philip, Bear Ascended's power and toughness are equal to the number of loyalty counters on it.

+1: Put a 2/2 green Bear creature token onto the battlefield.

-1: Target creature you control fights target creature you don't control.


//2

This does not meet the submission criteria. Planeswalkers are suppose to be allies rather than just a creature making them both, ruins some of the mystique, also it causes rule confusions, particularly in regards to combat. Even with out all these issue this card is better than tarmogoyf, dark confident any 2 drop ever, you get a 3/3 and a 2/2 the turn you play it, then a 4/4 and 2 2/2s the next turn that’s better than huntmaster of the fells for half the mana. If this card was printed it would be the biggest mistake since skullclamp.

Submission 2 chesco

Angry Bear RR
Creature - Bear Berserker - Rare

Creatures you control have Haste

Sacrifice a creature: Angry Bear deals 1 damage to each player.

2/2

Do you work for wizards because this is the exact type of card they love printing mana intensive red creatures that make removal bad. It has extra abilities and the ability to sacrifice other bears to do damage would certainly make other bears fear it. It does not feel like a bear champion though, but still a solid submission. You advance to the second stage of grading.

Submission 3 [b]Mr_Weebles[/b]Bear Tyrant - 3GGG
Creature - Bear (Rare)

Trample

At the beginning of your upkeep sacrifice Bear Tyrant unless you pay GG.

G: Bear Tyrant gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

2/2

Matches criteria. But is very underpowered, the GG feels not needed and a 6 mana spell that, can get pillar of flamed or shocked if you play it when you reach 6 mana is very weak.

Still, tyrants do strike fear though none of its abilities really reflect this. It does have extra skills though but does not feel like a bear champion. To underpowered to reach next stage of grading.


Submission 4 Axiomblurr

Libearian UG

Creature - Bear - Rare

Bears you control have "T: Scry 1."

2/2

Bear witness to the grisly truth.

Meets basic criteria. I do not normally like pun’s (sorry lsv) mostly due to the Sun (most stupid, racist, excuse for a newspaper in the uk’s love of them.) But this one rolls of the tongue nicely and I actually thought was quite clever. It has extra abilities but they do not feel like skills of war or that they would strike fear in other bears, also does not feel like a bear champion. Also feels underpowered to me sadly you do not make the next round of grading.

Submission 5 Sc4rs
Grizzliest Bear
1G
Legendary Creature - Bear
Protection from Bears
2/2

This is a solid submission, matches most criteria, feels like a bear champion, has an extra skill in protection from bears which feels like something a bear champion would have, legendary also makes it feel more like a champion but I think it’s a push to say protection from bears would really strike fear into other bears. You do make the next round of grading.

Submission 6 thelemeys

Bear Colossus 2GG
Legendary Creature - Bear

Bear Colossus is 6/6 as long as you control another Bear.
Bears are 3/3 as long as you control Bear Colossus.

The world is divided into hunters and preys. The hunters are the ones who go out and kill: they’re with me.

2/2

This is a solid submission. Basic criteria matched. Defiantly feels like a champion, however it inspires rather than creates fears in other bears if you ask me, it it had given bears you do not control -1 -1 or something I think you would be on to a winner. Despite the fact this feels like a card that inspires other bears rather than strikes fear into them. It matches all the other criteria well so it makes the cut to the second round of grading.

Sunmission 7 _godica

Polar Bear (snowmana)(snowmana)

Creature -- Bear (Uncommon)

Protection from snow.

Whenever Polar Bear blocks or is blocked, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

2/2

The fiercest hunter of the north.

Decent submission I do not like the snow mana thing, as I do not really want to print snow lands in the block as its not the flavour we are going for. Decent ability, does not feel like a bear champion though nor does it feel like it would strike fear in other bears. Sadly this submission does not make the next round of grading.

Submission 8 pseudodespotIgalian Bear-Leader 5GG

Creature - Bear (rare)

When ~ enters the battlefield, put a 2/2 green Bear creature token onto the battlefield for each forest you control.

2/2

I like cards like this but it was not really what I was looking for. Meets the basic criteria. It does feel like a bear champion to me as it brings a host of other bears with it, but it does not really have any combat skills, it just makes other bears when it comes into play. Also feels like it inspires other bears rather than strikes fear in them, so sadly this submission does not quite make the grade.

Submission 9 Dr_mooBear Stanley - GRU (Rare)
Creature - Bear Technician

RG: Put a 1/1 Dancing Bear creature token onto the battlefield.

RGU: Draw 3 cards, then discard two cards at random.


Wake up to find that you are the eyes of the world

2/2

I do not get the name, I googled Stanley but that gave me nothing. Meets basic criteria. Does not feel like a bear champion, has abilities but dancing bear just reminds me of that porn site, nor do they particular feel relevant to war mongering bears nor would this strike fear in other bears. Sadly this does not make the next round of grading.9

Submission 10 Strider

Honey-Crazed Bear - 1G

Creature - Bear - Rare

Honey-Crazed Bear gets +1/+1 for each creature you control.

At the beginning of your end step, if Honey-Crazed Bear didn't deal damage to an opponent this turn, lose one life or sacrifice a permanent.

2/2

Meets basic criteria. Feels like a champion to me with the +1+1 ability, good war like ability worksbetter with other waring bears, like attacking also. However does not feel like it would strike fear into other bears but a well-balanced card makes next round of grading.

Submission 11 Domine

Belenus, Bear Titan 2GW

Legendary Creature - Bear Soldier

First Strike, deathtouch, haste, lifelink
protection from black, red and blue

"No retrear, no surrender, no matter what"

Mythic

2/2

Cool name defiantly feels like a bear champion, plenty of war like abilities, sadly this feels a lttle overpowered to me, without the lifelink it would have been fine. I guess deathtouch is a fear invoking ability but that is a stretch. I think this just about scrapes into the next round of submissions.

Submission 12 Stucco

Deathpaw the Reanimist...........BB
Legendary Creature - Bear........M

At the beginning of your upkeep, exile a Bear creature card from your graveyard. If you do, put a token onto the battlefield thats a copy of that creature. It is black and is a Zombie in addition to its other colors and types.

2/2

This is a good submission, feels like a bearchampion with its name and abilities, also this would strike fear into other bears bringing them back from the dead, none of its abilities feel like war skills though. Makes it through to the next round of grading.

Submission 13 GuitardudeZombie Bear 2BG

Creature - Zombie Bear - U

If you control another zombie, zombie bear comes into play with Intimidate

If you control another bear, zombie bear comes into play with a +2/+2
counter on it

2/2

Solid submission. Matches basic criteria. Does not feel like a champion but, the intimidate shows an ability to stike fear in other bears, I do not like the cipt ability rather than if you control as it makes it feel less war like, also feels a little underpowered to sadly you do not make the grade for second round of grading.

Submission 14 BirdyyyBear, The Experienced. (Mythic)
(GG) Legendary Creature- Bear

Haste.

If Bear, The Experienced dies or is exiled put him into play with 3 +1/+1 counters and gains whenever Bear, The Experienced leaves play shuffle him back into your library instead.

2/2

"Even Bear himself has prepared for any form of death."

Decent submission. Feels like a champion, though his abilities do not feel like war skills nor would he strike fear on other bears. Possibly a bit overpowered also, so sadly you do not make the next round of submissions.

Submission 15 Ikazuchi Herald of Ursus 2GG
Creature — Bear (Rare)

When Herald of Ursus enters the battlefield, destroy all non-Bear creatures. They can't be regenerated. For each creature put into a graveyard this way, its controller puts a 2/2 green Bear creature token onto the battlefield.

There's a bear in all of us.
—Garruk Wildspeaker

2/2

Meets basic criteria. The block is only bears so sadly in the block it makes little sense though im sure this would be an allstar in may formats. Does not really have any combat war abilities, sort of feels like a bear champion but would not strike fear into other bears though it certainly would all other races, Maybe a bit overpowered sadly does not quite make the grade for next round.

Submission 16 CMA-fillipi
Berb, Bearbarian Bear 1GG (Rare)
Creature - Bear Barbarian
Berb and all other bears you control have trample.
Berb gets +1/+1 for each other bear you control.
Roar!
2/2

Good submission. Feels like a bear champion, though once again it feels like it would inspire other bears rather than strike fear into them. Trample is a definite combat ability so marks there also, feels like a balanced card. Makes next round of grading.

Submission 17 ravesSpiteful Bear- BBBB
Legendary Creature - Bear (Mythic Rare)
When Spiteful Bear comes into play, remove all other Bears from the game. When Spiteful Bear leaves play return all creatures removed by Spiteful Bear to their owner's hand.

All other Bears get -2/-2.

2/2

Excellent submission. Casting cost and legendary status plus abilities make is feel like a champion if an evil one even if the name is a little plain. Removes all other bears from the game when it comes into play feels like a fear striking abiltity and the -2-2 ceratinly will strike fear in all other bears plus feels reasonably like a war ability. Comfortably makes next round of grading.

2/2
Submission 18 Bairdsy

Lightning Bear
2GR - Uncommon
Creature - Bear Wizard
T: ~ deals 3 damage to target creature.
“Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.“ - Bjarni, Bear Wizard


Good submission. Does not quite really feel like a bear champion but has a good war like ability, you did not include the P/T in text submission but its on the picture submission so good enough. The ability to bolt other bears would certainly strike fear into them. Current standard needs a card like this, feels balanced. Makes the next round.

Submission 19 Dev

Bear Elder - GG

Creature - Bear

Whenever Bear Elder becomes regenerated, put a +1/+1 counter on Bear Elder.

Discard a card: Regenerate Bear Elder.

2/2

Congrats on tying the knot. Does not feel like a champion, does have a combat ability in regeneration, feels balanced, however would not strike fear in other bears. Does not quite make next round of grading.

When Spiteful Bear comes into play, remove all other Bears from the game. When Spiteful Bear leaves play return all creatures removed by Spiteful Bear to their owner's hand.

All other Bears get -2/-2.

2/2

Excellent submission. Casting cost and legendary status plus abilities make is feel like a champion if an evil one even if the name is a little plain. Removes all other bears from the game when it comes into play feels like a fear striking abiltity and the -2-2 ceratinly will strike fear in all other bears plus feels reasonably like a war ability. Comfortably makes next round of grading.

Owsley "Bear" Stanley was a soundman for the Grateful Dead and the inspiration for their dancing bears logo. It was intended to be more of a fun than serious submission.


Would that be Augustus Owsley Stanley you're referring to? The fabled Johnny LSDseed, as it were.
