Hmmm, this card seems pretty good actually...

I think the pun is enough to earn 5 stars. I don't think I could bear anything less.

This is the Tarmogoyf before he existed! He doesn't scale until you hit the threshold and doesn't sync up with black discard very well, but he's a 2-mana over-efficient beater who ran Zoo decks before the Goyf.

That said, he works well in GB decks that run either dredge, or cards like Commune with the Gods and Grisly Salvage (and you even get a Grisly pun!)

Does not combo with Bearscape. Bear tribal needs to get it's act together.

I like that the Oracle revision makes him a Human Bear Druid. This card needs to see a reprint for that reason alone...

This card is great! Not only is he a mana weenie (not even that inefficient either! Just look at Leaf Gilder and ilk) but he actually becomes a highly efficient creature lategame. Assuming Threshold is agiven he is a 4/4 for two (and a colour weight of one!) which is incredible. It beats out such beasts as Watchwolf easily as it still has its mana ability when needed. And to make things even more un-bear-able it has a grizzly pun in its flavour!

Sure he starts of as a strictly worse Llanowar Elves, but the fact that unlike Llanowar Elves he can actually be useful late game when you have all the mana you'll ever need.

And I like the awful puns (in moderation).

Mana in the early game. A beater in the late game. An unbearable, grisly pun. A pretty good card overall!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
