- Does Spark Double get a counter if it doesn't copy?
- First Sliver and copies?
- What happens when you play card:Morbid Curiosity sacrificing a card:Spark Double?
- Are 'as this enters' and 'as you cast' abilities replacement effects, and how and when do multiple of these apply to a permanent entering the battlefield?
Creature — Illusion
You may have Spark Double enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature or planeswalker you control, except it enters with an additional +1/+1 counter on it if it's a creature, or an additional loyalty counter on it if it's a planeswalker, and it isn't legendary if that permanent is legendary.

Titus7007 Find out what your game plan is and go from there - what do you want the deck to do? Setting up for a combo finish with Niv-Mizzet, Parun or Thousand-Year Storm ? Drawing cards and adding synergy that way? A control deck with PW's as finishers? There are many ways to go, but cards like Runaway Steam-Kin , Goblin Electromancer , Faerie Vandal , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and Niv-Mizzet can't go in just any deck and be good. Don't get me wrong, they can all be strong cards, but they need a deck that fits them. Electromancer you won't see much outside of Arclight Phoenix decks, but it's so good there that they don't play less than 4. Niv is a mainstay in the Temur Reclamation decks because the deck is set up to play a bunch of spells, draw a ton of cards and go off with Expansion / Explosion . Torbran slays in mono red because they have a ton of reach and pings etc.
Chemister's Insight is good in a deck that wants to keep their hand stacked while keeping mana up for counter magic (ex. control) or dig for a combo piece (ex. Temur Reclamation). Outside of that I agree with Sorin_Markov_1947.
Keep in mind that all x/2 creatures you add to your deck will make your Flame Sweep worse. That doesn't necessarily mean you should avoid them entirely, but it's worth considering when brewing.
TL;DR you have a bunch of strong cards, but lack a focused plan and therefore synergy.

I'm not really hyped on Spark Double in this deck. Right now I think this deck needs some more early-mid board-presence, and the only thing worth making a four-mana copy with spark double is Niv-Mizzet, Parun .
Goblin Electromancer would work (although it's not strictly board-presence). Crackling Drake is good, but let's see if we can't find something 1-2 mana cheaper. Runaway Steam-Kin is a good option. Out of those three I might go with Goblin Electromancer to get your spells out cheaper and faster, but I wouldn't scoff at you picking Runaway Steam-Kin .

This is very good for a first EDH list. These cards seem interesting with Alela, maybe you'll consider them: Mark of Eviction , Conviction , Mesa Enchantress , Spark Double , Seal of Cleansing , Seal of Removal , Lunar Force , Favorable Winds , Intangible Virtue , Fanatical Devotion , Ertai, the Corrupted , Bident of Thassa , Hall of Triumph , Hanna, Ship's Navigator , Angelic Renewal

This is very rad! You might like these: Nivmagus Elemental , Cephalid Shrine , Spark Double , Distant Melody , Banishing Knack , Renegade Tactics , Sunforger , Arcbond , Radiate , Knowledge Pool (when played after Hive Mind, but before a lose-the-game spell, it protects you from the spell while your opps will still have copies. also has interesting interaction with Zada/Mirrorwing as the originally-casted spell will still be copied for each creature, and potentially the second spell as well), Possibility Storm (works like Knowledge Pool), Dovescape (works like Knowledge Pool), Snap (potential for infinite mana. what makes it really interesting is that it untaps lands, so you can keep storing counters on Magosi and skip your next 1,000,000 turns. Why is this a good thing? Teferi's Protection), Guile (with Cephalid Shrine and your general, this lets you make infinite spirits. not great, but definitely weird!), Kaho, Minamo Historian , Mistveil Plains , Spellbinder

I questioned Loch Dragon too, and I'll give you my stance on it but I think it depends what you want that slot to do.
Loch dragon is not a good card just from its stats. 3/2 even with flying for 4 mana is not great, and most of the time it won't be on the battlefield with Sarkhan (and if it is it'll be late enough in the game that'll only be an inconvenience to attack through), but the looting effect is very nice since it will trigger several times with only one dragon. You have other card filters in your deck as well, but like I said it depends on where you want this deck to go.
The major weakness with Spark Double is that you have to have another planeswalker (or really a creature works too) out for it to work. Keeping planeswalkers on the field without a good creature base is a hard thing to do, and is most often why superfriends decks lose. Getting a second Sarkhan out is great (or even better, get another Nicky B for that ultimate throw-down), but you have to have the first one down for long enough before you can do that.
They both have their strengths and weaknesses, so think about it and maybe do some playtesting. Another point in favor of The Copy Guy is what you mentioned about your mana base. Black mana enables a lot of your early-game plays, so that dragon is getting delayed almost for sure, whereas Spark Double can come in even on turn four if you want to copy one of your three-drops.

Sorin_Markov_1947 I have a question if you don't mind. I am beginning to question Loch Dragon in here because every Swamp I draw will delay casting him. Do you think Spark Double is better in that slot? I figure most of the reason I wanted Loch Dragon was because I want more dragons to ping attacking creatures, but Spark Double gives me another Sarkhan the Masterless AND another dragon with his -3 ability
