Sarkhan Unbroken Discussion
9 hours ago
Hey, nice budget Dragon deck.
Games where you draw and get Utvara Hellkite onto the battlefield are going to be much better than games when you don't. Consider a few more budget tutors that can tutor for Utvara?
Cards to consider cutting for these tutors:
- Fated Return
- Relentless Assault
- Yosei, the Morning Star
Consider cutting the five Vivid lands replacing them with budget Pain lands? Adding the Pains lands will reduce the number of lands that ETB tapped which can help game play.
Dragon Arch or Elvish Piper can cheat a Dragon from your hand onto the battlefield. Generous Gift and Beast Within are upgrades for a removal spells. Sarkhan Unbroken is an upgrade for a Dragon Planeswalker. Paradise Druid is a budget mana dork who can make any color of mana.
Cards to consider cutting for these:
- Keiga, the Tide Star
- Utter End
- Darksteel Ingot
- Sarkhan the Mad
Good luck with your deck.

If Sarkhan ever gained white, he would be our first legit 5c Planeswalker. That's due to there being both:
Perhaps the push it would take is for Sarkhan to finally respect humanity. It's a long shot, but I think it could be possible. Perhaps start him off as Boros, make a new print in Naya. This then leaves options open for all combinations, though to be honest a Sarkhan without red feels wrong.

KongMing brings an interesting point that I'm not sure has been established: "Almost any fetch land (...)"
I know I am taking this out of context, but there are a ton of cards that tutor without exactly being thought of as a "tutor".
Lands are also tutors. Literally all Fetch lands, including Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse , not to mention cards that search for lands such as Expedition Map , Sylvan Scrying , Tempt with Discovery , Reap and Sow , etc.
Heck, we even have Planar Bridge which is just an all-around basic tutor engine.
Then we get into Planeswalkers such as Nahiri, the Harbinger , Samut, the Tested , Garruk, Caller of Beasts , Tezzeret the Seeker , Sarkhan, Dragonsoul , Sarkhan Unbroken , and Liliana Vess to name a decent portion of them.
So "tutors" seem to be a lot more expansive than just the basic 1 - 4 CMC black sorcerys we are use to thinking of. To ask for an "archetype" that has none of these as well as the vast swath of unmentioned cards is actually kind of backbreaking to build. You purposely have to go out of your way to not at least consider some type of card in some kind of color(s) to assist you with. At that point, you're really building more of a challenge deck to test your skill as a deck builder, such as a "one-word tribal" or "goofy hats matter" deck.
It can be done. I'm sure there are tons and tons of decks out there that don't have a single tutor in them, but at the same time those are probably going to be mono-colored decks that have some sort of serious draw potential or so much duplication in terms of cards they select that they don't really NEED to find anything because it's probably going to be right there on top. Decks like this include: Aristocrats, Burn, Ramp, & Zoo.
At least, that's my thoughts on the matter. Either way, it's a good discussion to have as it helps set the tone on how to explore other hub ideas in the future :)

It's ult requires 4 turns of constant using this weak +1 ability so by the time you get to this Sarkhan gets destroyed or overruned with creatures. The best way to evaluate planeswalkers is to look at them as a sorcery spells with 2-3 modes (depends on how many abilities can be activated the moment it enters the battlefield). With this in mind Sarkhan Unbroken is 5 mana for:
- Add 1 mana of any color and draw a card
- Put 4/4 Flying Dragon token...

I would consider putting Sarkhan Unbroken back in just to help with the mana fixing and draw power. I don't know what your experiences were with him, but that ult to me is way too good to pass up.

Just kind of spitballing at this point.
I really like the idea of the Oathbreaker format, but I also like a lot of the three color combinations, and realized some (actually half) of them had no current possible oathbreakers.
I started out thinking that I wanted Naya to be Huatli to lead a three-color dinosaur deck with Savage Stomp as the signature spell. But then I thought that the most interesting Mardu option would be a Sorin / Nahiri flipwalker, which got me thinking about doing it as a set with ties to the aftermath of the War of the Spark, which would probably be something like
- Samut, Vindicated with Heroic Reinforcements
- who returns to Amonkhet having defeated the god-pharaoh she'd previously dissented against
- Three planeswalkers who broke from Bolas and are now hunting down those that didn't
- Kaya with Assassin's trophy?
- Vraska with Connive//Concoct?
- Ral with Justice Strike or Deafening Clarion?
- Sorin / Nahiri with Bedeck//Bedazzle?
- since they each feel betrayed by the other and resume their conflict
No real justification for the color shifts for Kaya and Ral, though.
I think I'd personally be most interested/have more ideas for a Naya Huatli, Abzan Yanggu or Vraska, Sultai Kiora, and Jeskai Narset than what I had above; like the Sorin / Nahiri transformer, though I'm unsure of the signature spell I'd want to gear them towards.
Any good candidates I'm forgetting?

I was pondering this the other day, with Morophon, the Boundless coming out I thought why not? They show up in all 5 colors, every tribal buff can be relevant if you are using changelings, plus some of them are just plain cute.
In the same vein as your Dragon Tempest you should look at Sarkhan Unbroken . His ult would be super beneficial... same with the original Nissa Revane ult. And if you like the not dragon but they are dragons theme you could also run the partners Khorvath Brightflame and Sylvia Brightspear
Im not sure how to build it just yet but I feel like it could be a lot of fun.

Mayushii- thanks for the input! Yeah I had Niv-Mizzet Reborn in the initial concept for a long time, if for no other reason to fetch with Sarkhan Unbroken ! I was just trying to lower my curve as much as possible. A lot of my first drafts focus on trimming the top of the curve as much as possible. I really really wanna find a way to jam Primevals' Glorious Rebirth but its sooo expensive lol
