Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker Discussion

Canadiansnowdragon on Karrthus

Karrthus and Dragon Tribal is such a fun deck, and I know from experience that swinging with a hoard of giant flyers feels awesome! That being said I know also from experience that this deck can easily lose momentum and go into topdeck mode. Having consistent or increased card draw can really push Karrthus and his brood through to victory. Effects like the Emblem from Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker are very powerful, and the card Avaricious Dragon has it on a angry dragon body. Other cards to consider are Green card draw that looks at the power of your creatures such as Rishkar's Expertise or Shamanic Revelation. if you have the budget for it Sylvan Library is just gas. Black pain draw cards such as Phyrexian Arena or Painful Truths can help give you that extra advantage. I hope that you can have a lot of great games with this deck, and long live dragons!!!

DredgarI took a look at your binder, and I'm interested in Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, Waste Not (foiled), Primeval Titan, Ghost Quarter, Viscera Seer, Scavenging Ooze, Ulvenwald Hydra (foiled), Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Cultivate, Master Biomancer, Gyre Sage, and Commander's Sphere. The grand total of the prices tapped out provides is $36.84, which is enough for 3 Fatal Push's and a Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip.(2 dollar difference, the grand total is $38.22

Looks pretty good just a few suggestions.

With respect to your mana curve, you don't have much to do turn 1. I'd consider additional mana accelerants. Things like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise can help you get an earlier start on the ramp. Dragonmaster Outcast is also pretty good value

You're a bit light on interaction with your opponents board state. Other than Dragon Tempest if your opponent plays a creature you need to kill you're out of luck. Since tempest requires both the card and a creature to trigger it, you might not be able to kill creatures as efficiently as you would like. Scourge of Valkas works similarly to tempest and might be worth a spot in the deck but also has the same problem of not being able to kill creatures reliably (It definitely pulls its own weight if you have it out alongside Dragon Broodmother though). Lightning Bolt is good at picking off smaller creatures and can even provide the last few points of damage to finish off an opponent.

I think Bow of Nylea can probably come out. The dragons only have deathtouch when attacking. Sine you get a dragon on both your upkeep and your opponent's, you can either spit out a lot quickly or create one big one. Also the bow is legendary so you can only have 1 out at a time. As a 4 of, extra copies will just end up sitting in your hand.

Also if you can get your hands on a copy, Sarkhan Vol is a planeswalker who can shapeshift into a dragon with Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

Bovine073, I agree with clayperce here; Glorybringer is insane in standard, but Stormbreath Dragon just is so much more effective in modern, dodging everything but Terminate and Dismember. I think that not being hit by Path to Exile is incredibly important here, since it makes by far the most resilient threat in the deck. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker is the other one I could see being played since it also dodges most removal, but Path to Exile is more common than Terminate, and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker still dies to creatures attacking it.

I love Glorybringer in Standard, but prefer Stormbreath Dragon in this deck (well, so far, anyways). It's probably just a meta call though. Here are my thoughts on the cards I considered for the 2x Stormbreath slots:

Howdy. Just want to comment first how I love how your deck is just so simple yet so destructive heck I'm surprised no one had thought it throughout before.

As for cards, against control, the first card to come to mind is Thunderbreak Regent as it punishes the opponent for trying to harm your big attackers, I do see why it doesn't fit all the way in a deck that tries to get to 8 mana by turn 4 but if you think about it, they're good lightning rods for early removal and if you can get 2 out on the same turn that's definitively going to leave a open wound on the opponent by ability alone. Another card that is more "flavorful" for your deck is Sarkhan Vol, who can really help you in times of a slow game, as he can cover himself with any of your dragons or your opponent's creature while giving them haste, he then also can deal an additional 24 damage to your opponent with his ultimate (with Dragon Tempest in play, of course) There's also Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker who is basically a Stormbreath/Avaricious Dragon in fusion)

Aside from that, if your getting bored from reading. Heroic Intervention/Blossoming Defense are good cheap protection spells and Prowling Serpopard or his bigger brother Spellbreaker Behemoth protects everything from counterspells.

Hope this helped somehow

Frontier is Magic 2015 and Khans Block forward. Theros block is not legal in Frontier so if you were going for Frontier like you said in your description then many cards in your list are not legal for the format. That being said, I am very much so a Temur player and I do appreciate this list. Maybe drop some Phoenix for some Stormbreath Dragon if you choose to continue in your current direction with this list. Six mana dorks is optimal. Maybe put in 2 more land. Also, Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker is strictly the better Sarkhan for your list.
