    I’m mad about it being Naga. I just wish they dropped that creature type and made them Snake. The Aven-folk aren’t typed ‘Aven,’ they’re typed ‘Bird.’ The Nactl and Leonin never got typed as ‘Nactl’ or ‘Leonin,’ they were both typed as ‘Cat.’ I hate how certain tribes get watered down more than others. I’m pretty twisted up about it.

    • God Enel

      Now that you mention it, it makes a lot of sense, I agree.

      • KÖLLEWOOD (MOBIL)

        I think they need a great creature update again…

    • Guest

      They did it again this set with jackals, they could’ve been typed as hounds.

      • eltratzo

        yeah. not ab big fan of that as well.
        a) we already have jackals in the game that currently are hounds.
        b)we had sapind canine humanoids, the ainok, that didn’t get their own creature type.

        • Kahai

          Jackals is a returned subtype. It was removed in favor of hound. I hope the named jackals get errata’d from hound to jackal.

    • eltratzo

      there is some kind of internal discussion about that it seems. maro and some others seem to consider the introduction of nagas unneccessary as well. but they exist and barring another great creature type update we’re stuck with them.

      regarding the nacatl and leonin however things are slightly different than you described;
      The feline humanoids are all leonin. the nacatl are a specific tribe of leonin on alara. prominant members include ajani and his brother.

      • Hedronal

        Lets hope if there’s any change then it’s goodbye naga and viashino as types.

    • Hedronal

      Viashino get a type too.

      • xSiNx SHADOW

        but viashino are lizardfolk not snakes if anything they should get the lizard subtype

        • Hedronal

          Yes, that’s the point.

  • Happy The Cat

    from Wikipedia: Nāga (IAST: nāgá; Devanāgarī: नाग) is the Sanskrit and Pali word for a deity or class of entity or being taking the form of a very great snake, specifically the king cobra.
    so… why is an entity taking the form of a great snake NOT A SNAKE?!

    • Krhaynes1

      If you dress up like a lion, are you a lion, or are you still human?

      • Happy The Cat

        if you a genetically fused with a lion, have a lions head, paws, and… well everything else but are bipedal, are you a lion?

        • Krhaynes1

          But they aren’t genetically fused. They are dieties that take the form of it. So essentially they are dressing up, not morphed or fused

          • Happy The Cat

            right, sorry. if you ARE a lion, does that make you a lion? I dont see the subtype God on this card so, no, it isn’t a deity like the real world Sanskrit and Pali words, it instead is a bipedal snake.

          • Krhaynes1

            Not according to wizards…

    • Random Guy

      Yeah, and ape tribal should include humans! From a mechanival perspective I agree with you, just your argument.

      • KÖLLEWOOD (MOBIL)

        ok and maybe a Ape+Human Lord in another Tribal deck
        “All Apes counts as Humans; All Apes +1/+1”

        A “Planet of the Apes” Plane would be nice even outside a Un-Set

    • Cthulhooo

      Do they need to carbon copy everything? Ancient myths are inspiration not blueprint.

      • Happy The Cat

        nagas are snakes! snakes already exist in magic! AND we’ve had nagas that were snakes since kamigawa! this is just adding a new creature type to the game that is the EXACT same thing as a tribe that already exists!

      • Kaiser

        I hurt the creature type that is relevant so yes.

  • Kaiser

    The card is good. But i agree with the mad cat, this need to be errata has snake. Naga is so BAD creature type for snake humanoids

    • KÖLLEWOOD (MOBIL)

      Or we need a Orochi Errata?

      • Kaiser

        Orochi are already snake. Nagas are not enough, you don’t play “naga decks” naga inst tribal viable at all. 14 Nagas can go to snakes

  • KÖLLEWOOD (MOBIL)

    I want a Naga+Snake Lord

  • Kumrag

    Naga =/= snek
