    Yes - I missed an Ur-Dragon trigger early in the game. My bad. I was just thinking of Morophon as a Avatar in my head. Hope you all enjoy the episode! -JLK

    Didn't the Ghastlord have protection from black when Jimmy cast Toxic Deluge at 32:00 ? It would have protection from that spell right?

    So just watching this again, did graham's graveyard get exiled at some point? Because the shamanic revelation would have been able to save josh with +8 life. Btw one of the best Game Knights. Great work!

    Jimmy can just mill Graham using his Altar Of Dementia and Hogaak, casting Hogaak by delving. His graveyard was big enougth to do so. Hogaak is an 8/8, it's like 80 cards milled by casting it 10 times from the graveyard, Delving 70, he had some tokens, so one of those cast could be convoked. Idk, he could win I believe.

    ... Josh could have lived.
    Sling-Gang Lieutenant enters and triggers. Trigger on the stack, play Diluvian Primordial, use Assassin's Trophy to blow on Lieutenant. The other two goblins aren't in play yet, so they can't be sacrificed for damage. He'd be alive at 1 health.

    Josh before you died, couldn’t you have played the from grants graveyard that gained him 4 life and he drew a card for each creature with power 4 or greater he had? That would’ve kept you alive

    Do y’all have a deck list of the Bear Force One deck? I need this lol

  • Google não deixou eu colocar um nome maior que esse

    I feel like these videos are dedicated to bully josh, he always has the coolest deck and does the craziest plays, get's focused and dies while a guest builds the most stupid board that simply deals damage while doing nothing cool and the rest pretends as though they don't exist until it's too late

  • Andrés Pérez Camarasa

    OMG the hermit play xD
    Love the show! I'm in the middle of putting together my own Ayula deck so this is a great oportunity to see one in action, and Graham's deck build philosophy is just like mine (except I won't use any artifacts because bears can't use artifacts, they have no thumbs xD)

    Damn, I'm rewatching this for the third time and I can safely say that it is my favorite episode of Game Knights. The constant shifting of who was in the lead, hilarious moments such as the hermit druid trigger, and the ending when the Golgari graveyard engine was defeated by a bunch of bears. It's going to be a while before this episode is topped.

    Yeah... the way Jimmy started talking about the Bear deck after JLK died completely gave away the ending. And that dude's an actor. Maybe he did it on purpose to take away the surprise out of spite.

    @36:00 thats one of the things ill never get about mtg. If all of Josh's artifacts and enchantments which were previously targeted are now phased out, shouldnt he be able to declare new targets?

    Seeing Bear Tribal in Commander for the first time gave me such a warm, fuzzy feeling. Like when Magic got its first Goblin Planeswalker i.e. Daretti, Scrap Savant. All hail Ayula, Patroness of Picnic Baskets and Honeypots!

    • djpraiseadelik
      djpraiseadelik 10 days ago

      Another note: I really hope WotC and Mark Rosewater will expand bears beyond ones inspired by the West and Europe. Let's see some Pandas and Koalas too they deserve some love also. See MTG Goldfish and their custom Panda deck.

      @Super JTPJ of course I have, but it doesn't come up super often. If it does, you move him to command zone.
      If you do that, then yes, you have to pay the commander tax. That still applies.
