The thing with ranking in the serps is that it all depends on the specific keyword. i have some ranking with as few as a hundred links, and some with thousands of links that are still slowly crawling up the rankings.
This is why analyzing competition is important when choosing your keywords that you want to target.
Backlinks still power the web, and you will need them for long term growth, but you cannot say an exact number that works for everything.
What you need to do is set a goal for each keyword, and then measure your progress to see how many more links you might need.
