Hmmm, I would find it very interesting if Jund begins to run him competitively. It would be really impressive to see all those card advantage creatures get an... upgrade, so to speak. And then finally get a free draw, or two depending on how many lands are drawn. Generally a good planeswalker, just more subtle.

Super changeling fireball attack! Sarkhan FTW!

First Magic card with a gender-based pronoun in its oracle rule text. "Himself".

They stole that first ability from me :P

Well, not really. But I did design a card on March 8th that did almost the same thing. Except it exiled the card and revealed it and lost loyalty counters instead of doing damage. This is actually much better.

really like this guy. I was hoping I would pull one one of these days and I did! A great Defensive and offensive Card. Got rid of nasty Big creatures and gave me some nice little Dragons I can smack people around with. Along with his last ability and my Bogardan Hellkite and Splinter twin combo I can smack some one in the face for 20 damage with just 2 dragons! That is something to like I think. 4/5!

Hmm.... Interesting to note, neither of the "Rise of the Eldrazi" planeswalkers have an ultimate ability.

I have a pretty funny story about this card, I went to Wal-Mart about a week ago pretty late at night when my local shop was closed, and picked up two boosters while I was there. There was a low amount of Rise left so I stashed four boosters behind some other stuff on the very bottom shelf. I got paid like 4 days ago and went back to Wally World and they were all sold out! I remembered the packs I stashed and grabbed three of them! I was pretty happy, and the rares were pretty decent. Nothing amazing but pretty good. Today, I went back like an hour ago, and they were still out, so I was looking and wasn't sure if I left any more down behind the bottom shelf. I found one booster! I got it and a "value pack" with 30 loose random cards, and a 6-card booster of conflux. Cuz that's all they had. When I got home I opened them up and had a freakin Sarkhan the Mad! Man I am stoked! I don't care if he's not the BEST, he's still good, and it's only the 3rd planeswalker I've ever gotten. I think ... (see all)

@TheWrathofShane: It doesn't say -X because that is the cost, thus you wouldn't know the cost until you paid and had the ability resolve, which is impossible.

I'd like him a lot more if his 0 ability also did damage to target player.

This card is underrated...clearly not as good as Gideon, as Gideon is probably the 3rd or 4th best planeswalker in mtg history. But this guy can be devastatingly good, and this set made sure there are cards with nasty synergy with STM. Tuktuk the explorer is one of my favorite sarkhan fodder pieces (2 5/5s for sacrificing a 1/1), Mortician beetle should absolutely be run in a sarkhan deck. So many black cards have great going into graveyard abilities. In other sets, broodmate dragon and kokusha can inflict damage quickly w. sarkhan.
