Sarkhan Flame Sweeps

Standard* UBR (Grixis)



Creature (1)

Early control + Sarkhan Masterless and friends

The goal is to cast and copy/recast Flame Sweep, Shock, and Disfigure using Chandra Acolyte and Ral until Sarkhan makes all his buddies 4/4 dragons.

I also want this to be able to handle Teferi and Narset, or possibly Nissa, so I've included Elderspell in the main deck as well as Thought Erasure and counterspells. I think I may occasionally ElderSpell my own walkers to pile counters on one of em. Is that wrong? I was hoping to create a deck that is capable of handling a variety of threats without having to rely on a sideboard.
