JonathanSamurai Deckling

I'm Jonathan, and I play tribal. I love the theme of tribal and the different worlds tribal decks explore. Most tribal decks fall into the mainstays such as goblins, elves, soldiers and knights. I like to explore some of the other tribals I believe to be fun and interesting.

Most of my decks aren't that expensive outside a few modern staples. That said, they still lean more towards casual than competitive. I still play at FNM when given chance and for the most part, do reasonably well. I love playing FFA in groups the most, however. The political aspect of it and just hanging with cool people make it the most fun for me.

Enjoy the list yourselves if it pleases you, I mostly posted them here so I can tweak and get others input. I am on a quest to build more tribals in the future, so maybe throw out a tribe to consider!

Red_X, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! I see the deck differently now.

Lord_Europa, think of it in terms of a weenie deck. Discard to remove threats from their hand. Kill spells to remove threats from the battlefield, which can be flashbacked with Toshiro Umezawa.

You then use the two drops to build your field and swing on the opponent until they reach zero life. It plays like a black version of white weenie where the goal is to go wide before the opponent can shut you down.

geartank, I’ll be honest that I didn’t know Clifftop Retreat was reprinted in standard.

I’ll probably look into to changing it then, thanks for the input!

wowsuchdoge, I think Sorin is just a little slow for what I ultimately want out of the deck. Without Zurgo Bellstriker, I’d start looking at some of the two drops honestly or low cost dash mechanics. The biggest reason for Bellstriker is to trigger Fatal Push Revolt.

There are a few good Dash creatures or decent bodies at the 1-2 CMC slot if you don’t want to run both versions of Zurgo.

The deck itself is fairly consistent as long as you hit all three colors on curve or hit RB at least. Like all creature deck it is prone to removal heavy decks.
