Sarkhan was a man.... no wait - he was a DRAGON man!


Maybe he was just a dragon.....

.......but he was still SARKHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

AngelxLegna clearly has no mind of his own, at pre-release decks with Sarkhan were winning more than decks with Gideon : ) Oh, and for others who are still thinking about hating on this card, think of the card advantage this gives to the already card advantage heavy Jund. Turn 5, I drop Sarkhan the Mad. I have a Thrinax on the field, I use his -2. Thrinax hits the graveyard, I got 3 1/1 Saporlings AND a 5/5 flyer out of the deal. Sarkhan the Mad is amazing, pure and simple.

I think RDW is slowly including black I heard they're including cards like blightning. If that's true, this is gonna be pretty good with cards like ball lightning and hellspark elemental, since those guys die anyway. It can also act as removal if you're really desperate (say a baneslayer is kicking your ass). And of course if you have enough dragons, the ultimate (which can be used once it hits the field) ends the game.

I think it's better than its current 2.5 rating.

0: Sarkhan finds a book and throws it at his face.
-2: Dragon within.
-4: Sarkhan tosses a dragon at your opponent.

"Polymorph to Emrakul!"
"How about a dragon instead ?"

While trying to find a use for Sarkan the Mad, I made a terrible discovery:

One of the best plays would be to make sure you can get Sarkhan Vol's ultimate off (and let him die), then cast this guy the next turn and use his ultimate immediately. Incidentally, that's exactly 20 damage. Coincidence?

I honestly think this is extremely underrated right now, and Gideon Jura is overrated simply because control players are starved to hell. I'm not going to go into magical christmasland with dream scenarios about 20 dragons in play and you use Sarkhan the Mad's final, but he's very useful for taking out Eldrazi and certain 5/5 flying lifelinking first striking angels. At this week's FNM, my opponent was on the play and on his turn 5 he sacced all his spawn tokens and made a Spawnsire of Ulamog.. On my turn I dropped Sarkhan the Mad and converted it into a 5/5 dragon. Needless to say, he was ***ed. Very useful utility card, and I expect him to see a lot of play.


Nissa can only be used in Elf decks, Sarkhan 1.0 can only be used well in aggro decks, Jace 1 and 2 can only be used well in control decks, Gideon can only be used well in control\midrange decks, Ajani and Elspeth are only "r... (see all)
