So, my other factions are Cryx and Trollbloods (and some Skorne), so I haven't really done anything with Jack Marshals. Retribution is positively brimming with them, though. So I wondered, what's the deal?
Any general pointers for working with jack marshals? I'm starting more or less from square 1, here, but it seems like the better jacks for marshalling are the Griffon (good with the Invictors/Scyir), the Gorgon (a lot of neat no-Focus-required tricks) or the Hydra (give it Focus with the Arcanist, or let it build focus as it gets hit). That sound about right?
What considerations make a jack good for Marshaling? What qualities do you look for? What, in the end, determines whether you take a jack to be marshaled, or whether you let it stay in the caster's battlegroup? Do you find the loss of the marshaling character to be a major handicap for a marshaled jack?
