I think it's a wonderful time to be playing hatebears again. Oko made it really rough, but now that everyone is playing Lurrus, Oko isn't seeing that much play.

And since everyone is playing Lurrus and filling their decks with Baubles, it makes it pretty easy to construct hatebears.

Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace have never been better than they are now, so I'm maindecking those at the moment. Lavinia and Collector Ouphe are also both very good right now.

@griselbrother I dunno if everyone is playing Lurrus, though maybe it's the MtGO flavor of the month. I still think HollowVine, with 12 pitch spells and a virtually "free to cast" deck is the best in the format right now. That's mainly due to FoV, making cage/leyline impossible to stay in play. Someone just played an online tourney with it and went 7-0. I am not sure if he even lost a game, let alone a match. The deck is fierce.

Lavinia looks good as a potential answer, but unless it is put in with cavern, count on FoW.

I dunno about new decks but i've been trying tinkering with a control deck trying to balance the maindeck hate, like Cage, SgLantern, lavinia, Narset and Teferi, TR.
They all help against Dredge and Hollowvine in one way or another. At least stall long enough to win. I just have trouble finding a compact enough win-con other than Vault/key/JTMS.

Hatebears are tempting especially because of Drannith, Collector Ouphe and kunoros.

@ten-ten said in New decks and deck building strategies.:

Drannith is intriguing, but I think there are better options like Grafdigger's Cage in particular (unless you want to play Lurrus yourself, which I don't think is very good for the hatebears pilot). Kunoros is interesting as well (I had totally forgotten that that card exists), but I'm not 100% convinced that you actually want to play black in a WGx hatebears shell atm.
