As promised last week (or maybe the week before), I wanted to toss up the deck that Mr. P built to get me out of my much-documented EDH slump. The list below is a fairly aggressive “Hate Bears” list designed to punish people playing over-the-top high-cost bomb after bomb – exactly the metagame I’m struggling with right now.

I’ve gotten two games with the deck so far, and tonight I’ll be really running it through the paces and reporting back. The two games resulted in the following results:

-Near-loss to Kaalia of the Vast that could have been mitigated through either finding one additional green mana to double-overrun with Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, or more mass-removal. The deck struggled a bit due to a lack of card advantage. The “Play Teeg Always” plan was huge, and multiple players noted being shut off from their primary game plans – including the Child of Alara player to my right playing a strict “SuperFriends” deck…

-Win over Rafiq of the Many, Nekusar, the Mindrazer and Geth, Lord of the Vault. Nekusar took the early beating and was eliminated, and a timely Sword of Fire and Ice prevented the Rafiq player from attacking in, so he focused on Geth instead. Adding Sword of Feast and Famine meant an unblockable Teeg, and I rode general damage to a quick win.

Updates to follow after tonight’s games.
