Opportunistic Dragon to is a sideboard card at best to me. Your point of getting the extra point of damage is fair, BUT you need both Sarkhan AND the dragon. The odds aren't in your favor when you aren't even running a playset of either. The abilities on the other hand... only being able to target humans and artifacts may be too specific. Depends on your meta if you wish to main board it or side board it. Asside from that, you should look for better 4 drops. Right now, you have 5 cards and 2 adventures totaling 7 different 4 drops you could play. Ral, Storm Conduit and Fae of Wishes are both great. BUT if you don't need the Opportunistic Dragon specifically for your meta, it will probably feel a little sad to draw. Maybe consider these other powerful cards you could play.

Drawn from Dreams is great for card advantage that will keep you going by churning through your deck for what you need.

If you are looking to add in creatures, consider the following: Dungeon Geists can be effective at stall and is a decent body with flying, Sphinx of Foresight can be a awesome starting card or decent beater with draw fixing, and Nightveil Predator who is just a great card for stalling.

Deck looks good. Denial is a good tactic in pauper. I think you have better options for a commander though. Nightveil Predator or Baleful Strix .

Predator would be my first choice for an all around good CMDR. Finkel is good but I think if you wanted the card draw I would run the Strix. You can bounce him and draw more cards or block then bounce and draw and then recast for rather than the taxed from command zone.

Just ideas.

Good luck with the deck!!

I'd drop 2 Unmake and 2 Sign in Blood and add 4 Nightveil Predator . A lot to be said for a 3/3 hexproof, death touch, who flies. I think they run about .30 apiece. Easy +1

I actually like Nightveil Predator it's a cool creature.

Can I ask what the 1 drop Knight is doing here though?

Not being a jerk, just don't see it's use.

TuckCity99 Thanks for the upvote and positive feedback! I haven't actually gotten to even play Tempest Caller very much because the games don't tend to last long enough. But I've played it in a cube, where it's excellent for breaking apart board stalls. Honestly, the slew of Chups should probably keep any kind of stall from happening, I just like having an insurance plan, and 1 card feels like a fair sacrifice for that purpose. If I were to put it in the sideboard only, I'd probably just add a Nightveil Predator because that card is unbelievable

Double Strike/Flying sound good. I'll also consider Thopter Assembly . I'm straying away from Arcane Adaptation , Conspiracy , and Xenograft to focus on aggro ninja tribal. Working on finding some good stuff to do that.

Etrata, the Silencer is good. I didn't notice the Ninjutsu combo with her to keep her from being shuffled. In regards to Nightveil Specter , I originally had Thief of Sanity and Gonti, Lord of Luxury since they do similar things. However, I decided to cut them. I don't particularly see the advantage of Nightveil Predator . A single hexproof creature doesn't change much, and it seems like I could get Flying/Deathtouch from a cheaper source.

Double strike and flying works well with ninjas, sure it's not straight out unblockable but some evasion works well. Thopter Assembly can work since it can give you a bunch of enablers to combo off but it is a bit slow.

Etrata, the Silencer works well too and you can ninjutsu her before her shuffle effect triggers. Nightveil Specter and Nightveil Predator are amazing too.

Also you can run Conspiracy and Xenograft are good also to make your dudes ninjas along with Arcane so you can keep it tribal
