Sarkhan Unbroken Discussion
1 day ago
Dragons of Tarkir prerelease: March 20th, 2015.
I had the luck of drawing and playing both cards every game, I made it to round five at 4-0, my opponent was running Temur. Game two, I had won the first, he managed to cast his Sarkhan Unbroken, and the next turn I used Silumgar’s enter the battlefield ability to take control of it. It turned the tide in my favor for my first ever 1st place and undefeated run in any MTG event.

Glad I helped inspire your poem :)
May I ask, and I know it's a hard question to answer, but why is Elspeth your favorite?
For me, Sarkhan is my favorite. Not just because he is a Dragon, but I can closely identify and relate to his inner torment and traumatic past.
I've made it no secret that I have struggled with abuse as a child, which has caused me to develop PTSD. Users who watch my work may notice I tend to have an aggressive tone about me. I'm sort of always on edge, and always angry. It's very difficult for me to relax, I can't trust anyone, and it's a destructive burden on my life.
So in terms of the game, it helps that Sarkhan also lives such a tormented and angry life. It's sort of a good feeling, knowing I'm not alone in my emotions. Yes it's a fictional character, but the representation is what matters.
So with my little sob story out of the way, may I ask about your close and strong personal connection to Elspeth? And if it's just you really like her, that's okay too. :D I'm just curious is all :3

Hey man , First off I'd ditch three basic lands for the following:
Sarkhan Unbroken - Great for card draw + mana-fixing and pumping out Dragon Tokens.
Dragonlord Atarka - because he is a total Boss, great for blowing up Walker's and acts as an extra Wincon.
Cyclonic Rift Get a good board state happening and Cyclonic wins games.
You will probably need some more Enchantment/Artifact hate too so you don't get shut down by Stax effects:
Surrak be all about the Creatures winning you the game..I'd add around there more mana dorks cause you gotta ramp for the big guys to hit the table early, drop six Instants and Sorceries. Talking about dudes like Elvish Mystic , Somberwald Sage , Birds of Paradise .
Hope that helped, look forward to playing against the deck bro :D

I like the idea of the deck, but I would personally play it more control-based. if I had to add some sort of ramp I'd definitely go for Sylvan Caryatid and rather than duo lands I'd use more fetch lands. I may discredit myself completely here but... Evolving Wilds . Also dropping an island for Sarkhan Unbroken is an alternative. Sarkhan the Masterless is also a good card against aggro once you start having some board pressence, and tons of removals and board wipes. Languish if you have big enough dragons is a good option for removal. Also I'd reduce the number of dragons, With 3 Stormbreath Dragon , a full playset of Thunderbreak Regent and some huge threat like Atarka, World Render . Once you drop Atarka and have 2 dragons in play you win.

jasonkrivera; How do I upvote that a second time? Oh yeah, like this. +1!
Also, I think Sorin is technically a Sanguinomancer, as he can create Angels - or at least he created Avacyn. So, I think I botched it a little bit. My bad.
Return all permanents that entered the battlefield this turn to the zone they came from, then return all permanents that left the battlefield back to it under their owner's control.
Shuffle each library that was affected in this way.
Teferi to Narset: "Time is measurable in far more than one linear path. There are eventualities that can, could, will, or shall never occur. But your timeline... is truly a paradox."
Given this, Sarkhan's story is a great one and I encourage anyone who is curious about him to look it up. It's actually quite tragic.
What I'd like is a Sarkhan who finally finds inner peace. Please, make a mono-white Sarkhan that still cares about Dragons. Or, at the very least, a Boros Sarkhan who cares about Dragons but isn't overtly causing damage to and killing everything around him. AKA - no burn.

I feel like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is something this deck could make great use of. His second +1 ability seems super relevant. Every one of Dack Fayden 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Every one of Kaya, Orzhov Usurper 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Narset, Parter of Veils is a literal nightmare. Nahiri, the Harbinger is surprisingly flexible removal (and looting). Sarkhan Unbroken is just a really good, relevant card whose +1 and -2 are just super nice to have at your disposal. Same goes for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , but he has a -3, not a -2.
There are a lot of instances where Shalai, Voice of Plenty could be useful, Oath of Kaya , while perhaps more oriented toward formats where life starts at 20, is still a solid card, and life gain is very rarely irrelevant.
Wilderness Reclamation is bat-shit crazy with Sisay. Related- your ramp is lacking in a serious way. Yeah, I get that you have a bunch of creature that ramp you but the problem with that is 1- half of them only produce one color of mana, and 2- more importantly, every single color has access to creature removal. Maybe your meta runs a ton of artifact hate and 0% board wipe, that's the only reason I can think of that you wouldn't just use signets and Rampant Growth effects.

I have replaced Sarkhan Unbroken with Coiling Oracle , since the latter card is far better for this deck, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.06 to 4.02, and I also replaced Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun ; I know that I still have one planeswalker remaining, but he is in this deck primary for his triggered ability, and the possibility of drawing him in the same game as the sun is 2 out of 100, or 1 out of 50.

I have replaced Borborygmos with Sunder Shaman and Simic Sky Swallower with Winged Coatl , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.23 to 4.11, and those creatures are also better when copied.
I still feel that there is room for improvement in this deck; specifically, neither Ral Zarek nor Sarkhan Unbroken contribute to its overall theme, so I may possibly replace them. I already have Prophetic Bolt in this deck, but Ral's Outburst would be nice for its redundancy. Izzet Charm is nice, but Growth Spiral also is would be great for this deck. I also am hoping to find a way to put either Eternal Witness or Mulldrifter in this deck, and I wonder if I should replace Akroma, Angel of Fury , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , as well; Bloodwater Entity would be a nice addition to this deck, since its abilities are cumulative when it is copied. What does everyone else say about that?
