Jackal Familiar Discussion

Ulaemracosi on Jackal Deck

Well, when I think of jackals, on of my favorite creatures that pop up is Earthshaker Khenra. It's a really fun card, immediately coming down and attacking while surprising one of your opponents creatures, Plus, if they manage to take him out you can just bring him back as an Eternal for an encore. Another good jackal is Dread Wanderer, who is also a creature that is really hard to take care of permanently. i'm assuming this is a casual list, so I will also include Jackal Familiar, a 2/2 creature for one red mana. Of course, if you aren't looking for any new additions I'd just suggest cutting it down to 60 cards or so, so that you can reliably get your themed creatures out. A big reason I make a deck like this around some cool tribal idea is to see your creatures come out, as seeing them on the board is a lot funner than seeing them in the hand. and in an 80 card deck you'd like more than 30 lands or so, just to be able to play the game. After the Amonkhet block rotated out (the Egyptian themed set), these cards should be a lot easier to find, with people not using them very often anymore in competitive play.

move Volcanic Fallout's to SB

move 2xSearing Blaze's to MB

+1 Mountain SB

+2-3 gy hate SB

cut Jackal Familiar

i say +1 mountain because if your vs tron for example you are going to want your land destruction on curve and with 16 land for getting atleast 3 land on turn 3 is 44% on the play and 53% on the draw but with +1 it goes up to 50% and 58%. having a flexiable mana base for matchups and on play/not for decks that are trying to scrape past with minimal land is quite important

if you want to borrow any of my stuff that "might" be useful I have 2xCurse of the Pierced Heart 3xYoung Pyromancer 2-3xRatchet Bomb 1xKiln Fiend laying around

Neotrup, mogg maniac works differently from Jackal Familiar, it can only damage an opponent and never its controller.

The listed subtypes for almost the entire Jackal tribe seems to be incorrect. I tried to fix it but, unless I'm being an idiot and misunderstanding the interface, it isn't possible because the only Jackal related option in the drop-down menu is "Zombie Jackal".

Affected cards:
Battlefield Scavenger, Bitterblade Warrior, Bitterbow Sharpshooters, Champion of Rhonas, Dauthi Jackal, Defiant Khenra, Earthshaker Khenra, Flameblade Adept, Hurr Jackal, Jackal Familiar, Jackal Pup, Khenra Charioteer, Khenra Eternal, Khenra Scrapper, Nimble-Blade Khenra, Resilient Khenra, Trueheart Twins, Wildfire Eternal.

Nice deck, really fun to play. Running budget version for now since Nettle Sentinel and Pyroblast are a bit expensive for me. Use 1 more Horned Kavu and 2 Mogg War Marshal rather than it. Also changed 1 Nest Invader and one more sentinel for Jackal Familiar. Works fairly well, considered about expanding it to Naya Zoo but it seems a bit too inconsistent for me.In sideboard running 3 Electrickery 3 Pulse of Murasa 1 Ingot Chewer (because affinity with 0 lands is fun) 1 Nacatl Outlander and 2 Relic of Progenitus.
