A pretty good bear.  I liked Moorland Inquisitor and this is better.
Such a cool card! That flavour text is just lovely.
Solid bear.
I play for fun
A new set, a new better bear.
More proof that Gatecrash is the number one set in flavor text.

Nah, that would be Innistrad. But this one is still hilarious. 
My novel, Mektar, Clash of Ideals, is now available for purchase! Just click this text. I have +30 bragging rights according to HairlessThoctar. Just saying.

She has an advantage or two over the bear, at the least.

And she begs to be Arrested. 
Good bear
The flavor text was so good it floored me. No kidding.

Flavor is great, and this is definitely a solid card. Very cool.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

Cool bear if nothing else, and I love the flavor text. See, F&S people, when I said Selesnya (not Gruul) were hippies?

Dammit why is this block filled with so much suggestive artwork?!

Still its a good card, all around.

Wait, it actually knocked you to the floor? That is impressive.

I must say, as a mostly limited player I love these kinds of cards. Simple yet elegant, perfectly combining two staples of their color (1G for 2/2, first-strike for R) to make a card that I'll always be happy to play in my green decks, even when I only have a few red sources. The first-strike activation goes up in value in a dedicated Gruul deck since bloodrush is so much better on first-strike creatures, especially the ones that give more power than toughness.
A pretty good bear.  I liked Moorland Inquisitor and this is better.



if one is also playing red

Hmm, I just noticed that. I've noticed I tend to glaze over any artwork that features scantily clad females since I hate it when Wizards panders and I just block out any art that fits that description. Thus I never end up noticing until someone else points it out. Now that I look back... yeah that position with that oufit is a bit, er, disappointing. C'mon Wizards, how about respecting the intelligence of your audience every now and then?

You don't need to print cartoon-porn on your cards to get me to buy them, I promise!

Its not really the scantily clad females im refering too but rather that in this block there has been plenty of cards that have been "suggestive" or "innuendo-ish".
I mean just look at Corpsejack Menace and Armada Wurm from RtR and then look at some of the artwork we have seen from Gatecrash. Are Wizards deliberatly doing this or is it just our(my) mind/s that are dirty?
we've all got bodies

... Laura croft, is that you? The new one looks alot like this, and it is the "disciple of the old ways" = archaeologist. Huh. Anyway solid bear is solid, the first strike for is very nice. Now to make an archaeologist and/or standard women deck with this and treasured find and... idk what but I will make it (vraska probably?)
What's with the bunny ears?

Strange how the old ways would involve a vanilla 2/2 bear using an extra mana to cast Giant Growth in response, which would stop this disciple in her tracks.  Sure it's an extra card, but it's much more representative of the old ways.  Just goes to show that you should be careful digging up the past, because you might just find it.
Most Gruul members are pretty scantily clad, there's nothing wrong with this art.  I dig this lady.      
Oooh, maybe I'll splash RUG in prerelease
Nice bear.

Yes, flavor text is so strong I almost considred suddenly going Gruul. Then I remembered gruul is green-red.

In the old days, the Gruul ruled everywhere.
