Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker Discussion

Moonbar on Serious Ponza

Hey man, I'm glad that Chandra made it. She really is such a good finisher. One thing that I've been trying is more of a planeswalker-centric type of build. I've been running 1x Chandra, Flamecaller, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Nissa, Vital Force, and Garruk Wildspeaker. Along with this, I've gone with a full playset of Trinisphere and down to 3x Blood Moon. It's been working so far; all the tournaments save one since I made the change has resulted in me prizing out in one way or another. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker would be really sweet for the deck, I think, and it gives us another way to interact with opposing creatures while also winning us the game.

Honestly with this deck, I feel like winning can be so unsatisfying with so many good bombs. Having an opponent scoop to an Inferno Titan while you have two 'walkers in hand is somewhat of a letdown :)

Ok, I see Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker in your testing spot and that makes me really interested. I've been thinking about him since I watched a Gaby Spartz/LSV stream in which they cubed with him and he overperformed like crazy. How has he been?

If you want to go cheaper you should definetly drop Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Sarkhan Unbroken's final ability is awsome but it will take four turs to get there. I am 100% sure that the amount of times you will get him, and then have him live for four turns will not be worth $12. A good alternitive would be Sarkhan the Mad with his final ability you can win the turn you play him and his minus 2 lets ou kill ulamog because it says "sacrifice". Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker has an amazing final for how fast you can get it. He is also only $2. You should also drop some of the elfs and have them be just for ramp. The elfs are amazing but add more cost to your deck for just some ramp and early game plays. Most of the cost of your deck if you look at it is just the elfs that buff other elfs. The best part of your deck (The dragons) have way smaller price tags then the elfs. If you drop this decks price and buy it this will be an amazing deck!

Hey looking for some feed back on this deck, it's a budget deck and relatively fun to play but what are some good cards to add as I don't have a side board yet.

Raime on Something reSembling a dragon deck

You have some solid picks but i'm going to suggest some stuff that i used when i had a mono red dragon deck, i hope they are worth to you.

If Semblance Anvil is being a bother to you in terms of exiling your good cards, why not Generator Servant? Sure, it's ramp instead of cost reduction, but it's an early creature, it functions as ramp and it gives haste to any dragons that don't have it. Oh yeah, if you wish to go a bit more hardcore: Seething Song is also good.

Crucible of Fire is a win more card imo. You already have Tempest dealing damage and dragons to eat your enemies, giving them +3/+3 is a waste of slots. i would put another Tempest and another Servant in place. Swiftspear could be replaced for something like Steel Wall for a big-ass defender in the early game and a helper for the Hellkite's alternate win condition in case you're playing against a friend with a lot of artifacts. I would take out Kilnmouth Dragon and put the Mirrorwing Dragons into the sideboard. Kiln is just too slow (believe me, i tried to use him a lot ever since i got 2 during Onslaught block and when i came back to the game years later) and Mirrorwing is best as a surprise for game 2 imo. Here are some suggestions of dragons for you:

  • Moonveil Dragon: a 5/5 with a anthem-pump that is surprisingly strong.
  • Stormbreath Dragon: You know what's annoying? That friend's Angel deck with Pacifism. This one gives the middle finger to white's dangerous enchantments and removal.
  • Predator Dragon: My favorite modern dragon. It was my final beater most of the time. He wolfs down your tired monsters like tic tacs, gets a massive power boost and attacks on the turn it came out.
  • Scourge of Valkas: Dragon Tempest's Father.
  • Avaricious Dragon together with Rakdos Pit Dragon can be interesting. You get card draw and also a double striker that pumps.

Whew, that was a lot of stuff eh? Don't worry,i shall finish now with the last support cards that i would suggest:

  • Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker: Guy who has a dragon boner and can become an indestructible dragon with haste.
  • Banefire: Can be useful as a final burn spell and it has Sarkhan transforming his hands into a dragon.
  • Sarkhan's Triumph: Dragon Tutor.
  • Carbonize: Burn that stops regeneration and it exiles the victim.
  • Burn from Within: I would put this one on the sideboard. Indestructible creatures deserve death too.

Cut Crucible of Fire, Dragon Tempest, Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, 5 lands, Rampant Growth, Deathbringer Regent, and I guess Explosive Vegetation, that would put you at 60. If you find you don't have enough ramp put the ramp cards back in. I would also cut an Utvara Hellkite for another Thunderbreak Regent, if you can play three of those then I would try it's a really good card.

This is a Thing of Beauty! LOVE it!

I know your 5-drop slot is already plenty crowded, but you could maybe get even MORE style points with the addition of some Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker?

Also, I'm not sure it's worth it with only 9 targets, but Dragonlord's Servant might be more useful than the Simian Spirit Guide ...

Draw well!

hokeypokeypanda on some dargons

I decided to cut the Animist's Awakening and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker and in their place I put 4x Broodmate Dragon. While it gives me land i feel like there is a better way going about doing that. I run the 6 mana dorks and i have many dual lands but I'm afraid that I will be short on mana anyway. I would like to put in something like Volcanic Fallout but I don't see how i can make it fit and add something to help with mana.
