Bear attack.

Grizzly Bears is the 2/2 that most people are familiar with. "They changed it, now it sucks", no matter how exactly the same both cards are.

But really, that and Runeclaw Bear both suck equally.

Dammit, I want to see Ashcoat Bear. Or one of the hundreds of other strictly better 2/2s like Dawntreader Elk.

I second that. I want a tribal bear set. I have a bear deck just for teaching people how to play magic. Bears for the win.

Runeclaw Bear has a drawback the Grizzlies don't: "As an additional cost to cast Runeclaw Bear, sacrifice a nostalgia."

And gain some big ass runeclaws.

One man's trash is another man's treasure.

What some players liked because of nostalgia, others have no fault with. Personally, Grizzly Bears always bothered me, because I thought a pair of bears should manage to be bigger than a 2/2.
I'm not bothered by the name change. Next on the chopping block those dern pesky Birds!

Nuuuu! Not my precious unique bops!

Is well aware of the hypocrisy, thank you.
Update, bear-haters!

It's been noticed on MTGS that Sentinel Spider is card 189 according to this official image.

And since Roaring Primadox is confirmed to be card 188...

...Runeclaw is out!
I'm surprised / impressed at the number of strictly better bears you linked. Out of all those, the only ones that fit in the n&n are Somberwald Dryad and Nomadic Elf.

Transluminant would be cool, but it doesn't exactly fit the Harbor Bandit cycle as it doesn't get +1/+1 and also it looks like each color references the one before it, not after it (so green would care about red mana and mountains).

And those are just the ones at common without block mechanics. :D

Of those two, I think the Nomad is the better fit since it's a nice budgety way to color fix, which will surely be relevant come October.

Good point.
