    Is this the first of its type? Cuz I don’t think I’ve seen other hyenas

    • Nebulium

      Not the first, but the first in like 20 years. Unless you count unhinged.

    • Scathain

      According to Gatherer, it is the second hyena (unless you count shapeshifters), and the first outside of an unset.

      • Hedronal

        According to Gatherer, it’s the third total and second outside of an unset.

          Yeah there’s an old green hyena (common) that can’t block, the laughing hyenas from unhinged, hyena umbra which is an aura and this. Those are all the hyena cards in magic. I’m actually so happy that there’s a new on though, hyenas are great.

  • Scathain

    How exactly does one train a hyena to be that loyal, anyways?

    • Lysander Sky Wilkins

      Hyena are actually highly social family animals.

      • Tragic

        Not with humans, they’re not.

        • Lysander Sky Wilkins

          I mean usually no, but then neither are a lot of animals depicted as loyal companions in fantasy. You know the ‘Lion Man?’ He’s famous for his relationship with lions obviously but he also has a strong relationship with a family of hyena, as a fairly standalone example.

  • Hedronal

    More Hyenas in Amonkhet?

    Also, remarkably efficient stats.

  • Avery Standley

    Hyena soldiers in Amonkhet would be nice
    Also Anubis
    And monkeys
    and mercenaries
    and the Unearth mechanic for the Mummies

    Even with its down side i think this thing is pushed af. the down side is there only to prevent this from being an absolute monster.

  • Geddon

    I got a lot of use out of Sightless Brawler in the Theros era. It’s the best at blocking, since it’ll take out whatever’s being thrown at it (up to a point). So I like this a lot.
