Sweet addition to a Dragon EDH deck!

Tezzeret is very similar to this guy
1: card advantage
2: creature creation
3: burn

I prefer Tezzeret but Sarkhan's ultimate is better

Poor Sarkhan he's constantly underrated. Both of his cards are actually pretty good but were swept by the wayside n what should've been their prime.

use his -2 ability to turn an eldrazi or baneslayer or whatever into a dragon, next drop karrthus, tyrant of jund :)

Use with something like Tuktuk the Explorer or even Rukh Egg, then combo with Sensei's Divining Top to draw free lands for as long as your opponent leaves it untouched.

Red/green deck with a BoPs and some mana conversion with 4x Dragonmaster Outcast could work wonders for Sarky here.

Use Harrows to get lands out there much faster so your Outcasts can start producing 5/5 dragons.

Any time after that, drop StM here for an instant win with his ultimate. Include any number of dragon/direct damage spells to make it easier. Odds are, you've done damage to the opponent at this point so you wouldn't even need to wait until you had 4 tokens out.

Or you could always go with Conspiracy and make everything you control into a dragon...

Moltensteel Dragon becomes a surprise finisher.

Sarkhan the Mad + Bladewing's Thrall to get a dragon token each turn without losing a creature. Probably my favorite Planeswalker because he doesn't have any OP abilities that make him stronger.

Though I do not approve of what Lord Bolas has done to Sarkhan, I shall not question his judgment.

This card has been underestimated. They actually emphasized him well with his current identity. His first ability really defines how far he's willing to go into madness in search of power and knowledge, despite the harm it will do to him. His second ability, if most of you think about it, not just it can change a few weaklings into 5/5 dragons (not to mention they can FLY), Sarkhan can make the 'mighty' Eldrazi (NOT yours, obviously) downsized, the real objective is to kill off their annihilating instincts been used against you. His ultimatum can be quite devasting if the plan is tactifully executed.

With 7 counters, you may use the 'Dragon-morphic' ability three times, and then use go for the 'MAD for knowledge' for a card since it it does not have a cost for loyalty, since it only state how much damage Sarkhan will be dealt.

Let's face it. The Eldrazi do seem great and powerful, but even they are useless if they can't be put into effect/play, or protect their owners from the l... (see all)
