Surrak Dragonclaw can't be countered.

Other creatures you control have trample.

Surrak Dragonclaw Discussion

Gidgetimer on Help with Oloro CONTROL

OP says they want to build control because everyone else in their group is doing control.

You suggested aggro to make control suffer.

OP says the problem is that the entire rest of the playgroup is playing lots of counterspells.

I suggest that OP could play aggro by making a Surrak Dragonclaw deck instead if the other players were playing counterspell control.

I am a little confused why you are now mentioning stuff being out of color. Neither Oloro nor Sen Triplets (the two commanders OP was debating on) are good aggro generals, so you were the one who originally suggested scrapping the generals OP wanted in favor of a completely different strategy. If we are scrapping the generals there is no reason to stay in the same colors, especially when Esper is not the strongest aggro color identity.

As a side note. A single suggestion from a single user is not "everyone keeps" doing anything. I am sorry that I mistook your suggestion to run aggro as a suggestion to run an aggro general and then suggested an aggro general that addressed the OP's major objection to running aggro.

Surrak Dragonclaw can help with the counters. I’m not a big fan of counters in commander so I think you only need like 4 or 5 in a control deck.

-Good point in re Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner /the 3 CMC clump. This is primarily the reason, even though I'm considering moving up to the full suite of fetchlands this week (to help make Deathrite Shaman 's mana production more reliable and to maximize the impact of Nesting Dragon , as well as to help be able to cast Dragon Broodmother more reliably/fix mana more or less perfectly), I still can't justify the inclusion of Crucible of Worlds , esp with the more aggressive draw package.

-Good point also about Dragonlord Kolaghan being tutorable also w/ Worldly Tutor ; I'll do some more testing and see if my being flooded with haste effects was more a corner case in 2x games.

-Agreed about Sarkhan the Mad ; if anything, that gives your build a 1x flex slot. If you're having trouble punching through pillowfort effects but not being punished for a large board state with tons of wipes/spot removal, then he's great; maybe slot in your sideboard Surrak Dragonclaw in control-heavy metas.

I might be able to slam about 3-5 more games this week in paper, but aside from some manabase tweaking and adding in one more card (what do you think I'm particularly missing at this point, if indeed I should go back down to 36 lands), hoping to leave this locked for a little bit, especially since War of the Spark didn't give us too many new shiny toys to play around with.

Honestly no one expects my Surrak Dragonclaw deck to be any good until I drop like a single combo. And even then the combos in that deck are weak compared to cedh combos.

Happy new year everyone!

Ravnica Allegiance is not looking too exciting apart from Prime Speaker Vannifar , who I will definitely try out in the deck. The cut will likely be Surrak Dragonclaw , but I haven't locked in anything yet.

Playing the deck after the cut of Ancestral Statue has proved quite interesting. The deck feels significantly weaker but also somehow more free as all the statue lines no longer demand me to push for a win that way. To take the power level up a notch again I have reverted the cut on one mana dorks I made before Christmas.

Maybe considering some mana dorks, they would help speed up your gameplan. Also, Surrak Dragonclaw would be a pretty cool inclusion.
