Sarkhan Vol Discussion

Might need to add tutorable evasion in case we come up against a flying indestructible like Avacyn. Sarkhan Vol would be an option.

I pulled this idea off of BMHKain's profile. Hope that's okay mate! :D
The premise is simple: We design our own User Spellbooks!
EDIT: Cleaning up a bit :)
For those who need a little refreshing, a "Spellbook" is something WOTC is attempting to do for certain Planeswalkers. Jace and Gideon currently each have one. These are collections of specific cards that key toward the attributes of that Planeswalker within their color(s).
Each Spellbook contains 8 cards - of which 7x instants / sorceries / artifacts / enchantments. We have yet to see if creatures are included.
If you'd like to create a Planeswalker card that is a reflection of yourself, your motivations, interests, hobbies, whatever please feel free to do so. However, that is really more so something for the Custom Cards Forum. Otherwise, please feel free to pick a Planeswalker that speaks to you and use them to run your Spellbook! We understand not all color combinations have Planeswalkers associated to them, and some might not fit your vibe. If you can find a Legendary Creature, please feel free to use that too :)
Tips on what spells to select:
- How you enjoy playing MTG
- How you personally feel IRL
- Cards that speak to you on a personal level
- Cards that you just think are super awesome / weird / unique
- Cards that you enjoy to build around
As for the colors, I would say try to think of what color combination fits you best. Do you love to control the board and as such find Azorius or Jeskai fits your personality? Are you a relatively calm person, but you love to have titanic and explosive plays in Selesnya? Do you have an unsettling rage in your heart and want to watch the world burn under Rakdos' ire? Perhaps you just love big fluffy animals and want to go mono-green!
This is YOUR Spellbook! There is no right or wrong answer; Only your personal feelings and attachments to the game. With that said, have fun! :)
I love big, stupid spells. High-cost trap cards that most people wouldn't be caught dead with. I love playing fringe decks and making things work. I find, in my core, Gruul is the most fun. I get the speed of red, but the titanic plays of green. :)
1.) See the Unwritten - One of my most beloved cards in the whole game. Seriously, you're telling me for I get to cheat out two gigantic creatures?? WHAT YES
2.) Predator's Rapport - Ever see a player gain over 2,000,000 life in a single game of Magic? If not, it's because you haven't played me. I use to run a seriously overpowered ramp deck where I was able to double the number of counters on Heroes' Bane 18x. Yes. Eighteen times. That's a Power / Toughness of 1,048,576 / 1,048,576. Cast this spell and that's 2,097,152 life.
3.) Gruul Charm - I feel like this spell is dramatically underrated. Let's be honest here; Most games don't see a lot of flyers. So an Instant that prevents basically the entire boardstate from being able to block is outrageously powerful. In EDH, this is a great card that ensures victory. It is absolutely a staple in my aggro arsenal and catches many players off guard.
4.) Rolling Thunder - I love massive plays. This also means I love having insane amounts of mana. And what better use to put that mana to than to burn the entire battlefield to the ground! The thing I love about Rolling Thunder is I can specifically designate how much damage I need to go where, and just how many "wheres" are entirely up to me. It allows me to finetune my resources, take down the biggest threats, and dismantle key pieces of combos or synergy. It's a really good sweeper that specifically targets what you need it to target. Yes there are red spells that blow up everything, but sometimes you don't need to do that. A lot of red spells also damage your own creatures, which is never okay. Rolling Thunder allows me complete control, which is what I want when I am going into a blind frenzy, lol.
5.) Ruination - Because I don't need friends. Best way to lock players out of the game is to set them back to square one. Not only do I get to save hundreds of dollars by going all basics, I also get to utterly and entirely destroy every single opponent I am up against. How this card is not seen more often is beyond me. I guess people enjoy having friends, huh? Lol
6.) Howl of the Horde - Honestly, the only thing better than casting big, stupid spells is being able to cast a second one for free. And you know what's better than that?! CASTING A THIRD ONE FOR FREE BECAUSE I ATTACKED YOU! Now, on it's face this may not seem all that impressive... but when you HOTH a See the Unwritten and cheat out 6x creatures, or when you HOTH Predator's Rapport and gain so much life it's basically an alternate wincon, it's just a great feeling. Additionally, I can shave 3 mana off of my Rolling Thunder and just triple the damage output in general. The utility behind this card is amazing and I love it.
7.) Savage Beating - Hey man, I heard you like to attack. So we put some more attack in your attack so you can attack while you attack. Do you love to deal tremendous damage? DO YOU LOVE BURNING MANA?! Then boy howdy do I have a spell for you! This is an Aggro's wet dream! All of those attack triggers suddenly kick into overdrive. All of my Dragons suddenly are dealing 16 damage each! Oh, and don't even get me started on the crap Savage Ventmaw can pull off with this! What, you thought I didn't have a way to pay for all my jank ;) Silly you :p
8.) Xenagos, the Reveler - Obviously my choice to run my Spellbook, if I had to choose one. Can you tell? :)

BUMPILIUMCIOUS BARS FOR ALL!!!
Chose Omnath as my CMDR in an Anti-Meta Mono Color Deck. Even the description states 4 individuals (Me, & 3 of my Fan-Made Post-Mending Era Walkers.). Also, since you stated that nothing is known about what happened at a time of Chaos before Pre-Guildpact Beta Era Ravnica. Really makes me wish all 10 Guilds can coexist with another; but because of color difference, this is never possible even Post-WAR. So, yeah, I have a name for my cEDH Boros Community Deck after all this: "Razia's Parhelion II △ Legion of the Damned." Oh, & as I said earlier, Suns_Champion is also allowed to join despite not knowing cEDH that well; but is a very great Guru on this subject matter. So close enough.
I still haven't found one resourceful enough about the feedback part of the Competitive Gauge. Any ideas? Also, how does Inverter of Truth work w/ Manifesting, Morphing, & Megamorphing, when the first former exiles a whole library face down? That is out of reach for Manifests! Is it truly worth adding after all this?
Finally, one last plan: Outside my Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos Deck, I've one other thing to do: A literal Mono- Burn/Red Deck Wins deck where scorching is the name of the game; & when stuff like The Wanderer (SPOILER: Sarkhan Vol knows her back at one time.) w/ her ability to prevent noncreature damage to them, Stuff giving you (As an opponent), & even enemy permanents Hexproof; potentially retiring Shroud as a Keyword forever. I just need ideas to bypass Target Protection, & even ways to bypass ol' Wanderer-dono's noncreature damage immunity. I'll start development as I finish both my Exiles Matter Deck, & Mono- Deck. Though I'd like it if I can find a use for Inverter of Truth ; Maybe MTGGoldfish had something like that; it was an Against the Odds Deck. Ah well, better than Tibalt #1 as everyone would say...
Thanks for the update reading; I hope I didn't tick you off or something...
UPDATE: Now the situation escalades: I found some stuff for Inverter of Truth ; but does even one card exist to negate only ETB Triggers I have that can be negated? I got Inverter of Truth , Eater of Days , Leveler , Hunted Horror , & Dust Elemental ? Even if one of this even exists, AT ALL, I'd be more than happy to try & get a copy; you know, selective ETB Trigger Negation? Ah whatever, I can't even find something close to that... DX

Hi Wolf0312, thanks for stopping by and thanks for the suggestions. Sarkhan Vol looks right at home for that purpose, and still fits the budget theme for a planeswalker. I might pass on Zealous Conscripts though, it's a lot of mana for a once off effect and only a 3/3. Liliana Vess would fit nicely in here too, lots to think about with what to remove!

Do you think that we might need some more haste enablers or those we have with tutos package might be enough? I'm quite torn on Samut, Tyrant Smasher since she might be better than Sarkhan Vol in that one narrow thing but still I got rid of Sarkhan to up the consistency so... I'd like to hear your thoughts about it, maybe it's good in more casual version.

Sounds like a plan - let me know how the games went without Thunderbreak Regent since its the one that might get cut out.
