Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker Discussion

Super sweet list. My friend plays a lot of Grixis control and we've speculated on Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger since it came out. Everyone has been overreacting about Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath so it's good to see the stronger of the two finally get it's time to shine. I've played lots of Esper control sometimes splashing red for The Royal Scions and the card is much stronger in reality than it looks like it would be on paper. I'm not quite convinced on Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker yet but I played it back in the day and it does seem playable. This list is super spicy so dm me if you need any playtest help. I know what it's like to play on a budget, I'm still in high school and fetches don'y buy themselves.

Hey weezle101 ! Thanks a lot for your suggestions, I totally agree with it. The reason (and the only) why I am not currently running Kolaghan's Command and Liliana, the Last Hope is because of Budget.

I also agree for the 4th Polluted Delta, but same here ;)

The only thing I would not agree is the -1 Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker for Kolaghan's Command here. This card has got me so much games that I just don't want to get rid of it, yet. Maybe I would cut 1x Rise / Fall and 1x Inquisition of Kozilek, or maybe other spots, I don't know yet.

I'll get the cards one day, for sure :)

Mainboard Ideas: Swap Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker for Kolaghan's Command. Maybe consider trimming 1/4 Blood Crypts to add a fourth Polluted Delta to help the Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger escape plan.

Sideboard Ideas: Maybe cut Nihil Spellbomb for a copy of Liliana, the Last Hope to shore up your midrange mirror match?

i dont think Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker is that good. i'd cut it.

12 out of 27 of your creatures are legendary,less than half. i would cut Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

you have 27 items that ramp you (some of whitch i would cut, more on that later.) i dont think Armillary Sphere stands up to most of them. id cut it.

11 out of 27 of your creatures are multicolored. Dragon Arch is good. not saying cut it but on the fence for me.

you realize Bower Passage is bad for you because your flaying creatures cant block our opponents not flying things.

this is not a great dragon period. id cut Intet, the Dreamer

ideally a strategy has 30 of the thing it cares about. you should try to hit 30 dragons dis-including your commander.

last comments. this is your deck. im just commenting what i would do so take it as just that. suggestions.

stensiagamekeeper on Can Non-Planeswalkers activate loyalty abilities

1 year ago

Apparently Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker won't have loyalty counters removed if he takes damage after activating his +1 because he is no longer a planeswalker. That got me wondering if you had 2 activations that turn available, say for example because of The Chain Veil , would you be able to activate the +1 twice.

Additionally, if I have a Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage in play at 1 loyalty can I play a "Sarkhan the masterless" (, +1 sarkhan, swing with davriel and then -1 post combat?

Darth_Savage on Decks for new players

I've been thinking about this idea a bit and I'd like to suggest you want to instil the value of land in new players, right at the beginning. When I started, same as most I suspect, I thought land was boring but necessary. These days I couldn't imagine putting together a burn deck and not adding Ramunap Ruins or an artifact deck without Darksteel Citadel / Buried Ruin... My current casual deck leverages Mirrorpool to duplicate spells like Soul Spike which I'm "casting" for free (well 3 cards). I'd suggest you probably want a deck that uses non-basic lands, maybe a dragon deck with Crucible of the Spirit Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, something that shows lands don't need to be boring...
