Surrak Dragonclaw Discussion

surrak is one of the best commanders for dragon tribal
1st the only thing better then a 5/5 flying dragon is a 5/5 flying dragon with trample!
2nd flash speed middle finger to blue (you cant counter my dragons)
although the deck will mostly be gruul colors dabing into blue gives access to massive card advantage like Shaman of the Great Hunt, Temur Ascendancy, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
and last but not least there is Surrak Dragonclaw+Ohran Frostfang wich results in one of the most terrifying board states a dragon tribal deck can have.
EDIT: If you dont know why that board state is terrifying Click Here, the only thing that can block that board state is banding creatures with flying

I'm glad to see Thunderbreak Regent in here! He helps deter control players from slinging target spells too freely. Honestly though, the best option for gruul against control is to get your creatures to stick and hit face fast. So for me that card is Rhythm of the Wild. Make your big dragons unable to be countered, and make them come in with haste or hit stronger tomorrow. I know it's not from Tarkir, but it's pretty powerful. I'd probably run 3-4 of them.
I suppose it depends on whether your opponent plays from their graveyard or not and your curve, but perhaps Burn Away might have a maybe slot? Again high cmc though. Naturalize is always an option for sideboard? And Tormenting Voice is good for digging for answers. It's nice to have options.
For a similar effect as Rhythm of the Wild in Tarkir, there's always Surrak Dragonclaw, but he needs a blue splash and takes a dragon slot. And if you decide to splash blue, then you could run your own control and counters like Stubborn Denial, but now we're getting a bit far from your original concept.

Speaking as a huge fan of Surrak Dragonclaw who's story is horrifying. Screw lore!
This is a fantasy game, any card can be anything we want it to be and i for one do not need the confirmation of others.
with that said, I'm tossing Zedruu the Greathearted in the ring as a non binary furry

@TypicalTimmy its funny that you and i took such a similar path but ended up in such different directions
i started with klauth Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient but then tried out wulfgar based on the template i posted
ultimately i ended up with Surrak Dragonclaw as my general because counter spells are massive in my meta and trampling dragons are just awesome!

Boki92 I'm not a fan of including Beledros and Shadrix in the deck, they don't do a lot to push the main theme and Shadrix would actually give opponents flying blockers. I've just ordered a Scion of Draco , I'll be dropping Surrak Dragonclaw . I can't wait for Tiamat either, this upcoming sets looks like it's going to full of dragon goodies!

An instant-speed, uncounterable Primal Rage that makes the rest of the Tribe uncounterable, all on a beefy set of legs?! Nice..
The colors are pretty far from my wheelhouse, but that's part of why I like it..

Ezuri, Claw of Progress has so many cheap value creatures, you can build an insane boardstate quickly. On the more expensive end, I play a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck that's dragon tribal, but running him with a bunch of cascade/free cost spell and effects can turn a modest field into insanity rather rapidly. Doran, the Siege Tower lets you play a lot of defensive creatures that can easily turn around and wreck someone. A more general option is Surrak Dragonclaw who has the colors and support for dropping huge creatures and dealing damage.
