Sarkhan Flame Sweeps 2020

Standard UBR (Grixis)



This is the second version of my Sarkhan Flame Sweeps deck. The goal is to cast and copy/recast Flame Sweep et all using Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and Ral, Storm Conduit until Sarkhan the Masterless can turn everybody into 4/4 dragons.

In this version I lost Sarkhan, Fireblood , who I really liked, but I put in the The Royal Scions , who have a better card cycling ability, but whose ultimate isn't quite as game ending.

I was hoping for a cheap dragon to replace Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  , and I did't really get what I was looking for. But I think Opportunistic Dragon is good enough and provides an extra point of damage for Sarkhan the Masterless defensive ability which is huge.

After a lot of good advice from people below, I am settling on Fae of Wishes for the other two creature slots. I've also subbed out The Elderspell for Enter the God-Eternals . Now I just have to round out my sideboard.

I don't get much time to playtest as I have twp young children, but when I get out there I hope smash. I would love to hear anybody's thoughts and suggestions. I just got back into MTG after a 20 year layoff and this is my attempt at a competitive tournament deck.
