Guul Draz Assassin , Hollowhenge Scavenger , Prowler's Helm , Strionic Resonator , Trepanation Blade , Whispersilk Cloak , Disentomb are pretty bad cards for Jarad. Like Teal_Fox said before me, Reanimator is generally the best way to run it, and the version of Jarad that I built was designed for ramp.
If you're hard set on money, Life/Death is a good card, but Reanimate is the go-to for big reanimation strategies. I enjoyed using Reclamation Sage to blow up early artifacts or enchantments that would hinder Jarad later. Lord of Extinction and Sewer Nemesis are both great, get better as you feed your graveyard, and help you add to it too. If you want a cheap ramp creature, Wood Elves is my go-to, as is Sakura-Tribe Elder and Yavimaya Elder . Skullclamp is a MUST and is one of the best sacrifice outlets for your small stuff as it nets you not one, but two cards to draw. Mimic Vat was built to abuse with Jarad, and just nets you a positive value no matter what you're imprinting. Your opponent has a good creature that dies? Yours now. Someone slapped your Kessig Cagebreakers? Have it come slapping back with several SEVERAL more wolves. Remember, it gives haste to the clone too! Along side Grave Pact, you should run Dictate of Erebos that allows for a second trigger.
Just some quick thoughts that may assist you.
A card that is probably too slow (not sure) is Whispersilk Cloak
which removes the 2-for-1 problem of Aqueous Form
while still affording unblockable. Unfortunately it has a much higher cost so it. Also, when looking at how Aqueous Form
can be 2-for-1'd you really only have to get it through two turns for it to (almost) equal Distortion Strike
, which has about the same ability to be 2-for-1'd as Aqueous Form
due to instant speed removal.
Next_rim, thanks for the advice. I will strongly consider cutting down the equips, although probably to the 6-7 range rather than the 3-4. I understand the risk, of course, but those Ronin Warclub s synergize too well, and I use the Whispersilk Cloak as a naturally renewable Aqueous Form that provides shroud and won't be destroyed if I Ninjutsu away the ninja enchanted with it.
Judge's Familiar definitely has potential, but the Revoker's CMC is just too high. My ninjutsu targets need to be able to come in that same turn again while still being evasive.
I also very much like the balance of Ninjas that I have, as the Mistblades are reusable Unsummon s, the Deep Hours are draw engines, the Throat Slitters are Doom Blade s, and obviously Higure tutors and the other two are win-cons. Sakashima's Student is something of a wild card, and I often use him to clone the Oni.
Phage the Untouchable Whispersilk Cloak Vampire Hexmage Dark Depths Triskelion would make this deck awesome Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed equals infinite damage to all opponents also Vampire Hexmage and Dark Depths is a quick way to a 20/20 indestructible flyer on turn 3
The only reason I haven't added Dictate of Erebos is because I already have Grave Pact and Butcher of Malakir and didn't think it was worth pulling anything for a third card with the same effect. I have an Umezawa's Jitte but again, I don't know what to pull for to make room for it. Whispersilk Cloak is a definite possibility as well.
Dictate of Erebos especially if you decide to take a reanimation look towards it. I personally think, with the commander you're using, that reanimation should be a bigger focus than voltron, unless you really really want voltron as your win con.
My concern about putting in Whispersilk Cloak is that I don't want to lock myself out of being about to equip Daxos because he has shroud. That's why I'm trying to focus on hexproof instead. I will likely add it anyway and deal with it as I can.
I like Field of Dreams and Lantern of Insight . I doubt I can get my hands on the former. I am looking through my collection for the latter but my selection of artifacts seems more limited than I remember.
