Ok so i have been racking my brain for a few weeks to make a onyx jaguar deck work. I love the interaction the card has with kaelos and other songhai cards. The biggest issue that I am running into though is not the slower build up that jaguar is with in it self, but creating a board presence for jaguar to capitalize on.
I feel onyx jaguar is best used by being dropped when you already have a few units established on the board who then can be buffed that turn.
So here is my issue with the deck. I can’t, for the life of me establish any fkn board presence that can actually stick before turn 5. For the most part it feels like all songhai units in general are just one turn use and then they get obliterated by pretty much anything the next turn.
Here is the basic shell of the deck i have been working with.
The “odd” cards here are the Cryptographer and Redsteel. I feel they have decent synergy in the deck tho as Kaleos BBS triggers onyx and Redsteel gets triggered from general use of your BBS allowing him to be buffed up pretty quickly to some high numbers.
I know i’m not the best player which adds to this difficulty. I also have been running into a lot of magmar players and i feel any magmar unit comes out on top when trading with songhai units, unless backstab is used.
