Strictly Casual – How I Broke the Unbroken by William D. O’Dell

How I Broke the Unbroken Once upon a time, there was a guy who really loved dragons. And one of those dragons really messed with him and his head. Then he went back in time and fixed everything – including his beloved dragons! Suddenly Sarkhan was Unbroken – and I aim to break him down to instill a little fire and flight in your step toward victory! So let’s start with a decklist and take flight in a second … Sarkhan Broken Creatures (27) 2 Sarkhan Unbroken 3 Urborg Elf 3 Quirion Ranger 2 Wirewood Channeler 3 Elvish Pioneer 2 Dragonspeaker Shaman or Dragonlord’s Servant 2 Krosan Drover 4 Bogardan Hellkite 2 Dragonlord Atarka 2 Dragonlord Kolaghan 7 more dragons of your choice 2 Scourge of Valkas or Dragon Tempest Spells (14) 2 Dragonstorm 2 Inexorable Tide 3 Dark Ritual 3 Rites of Flourishing 2 Lay of the Land 2 Naturalize Lands (32) 1 Haven of the Spirit Dragon 4 Evolving Wild 3 Shimmering Grotto 3 Dismal Backwater 3 Frontier Bivouac 10 Forests 10 Mountains 4 Swamps 4 Islands Obviously this is an 80-card deck. We’ve kept the 60/40 ratio of Spells to Lands simply because we want to fly through this as quickly as possible, but it is a mana sink for sure. The meta design is we want to get Sarkhan Unbound’s ultimate off or Dragonstorm to...

The Mana Dork – Coming Home by Jesse Mackenzie

Coming Home I pulled my first planeswalker card from a booster the other day. I’d been intrigued by planeswalkers ever since I started seeing them in the display cases at game stores. Beautiful, fascinating characters, with a completely alien mechanical design—almost as though the cards themselves had planeswalked into Magic from another game. I’d bought single walkers—three Jaces during my time away from the game, Teferi and Nahiri when I started building my first Commander deck this year, then more and more as I raced to put together decks as quickly as my budget would allow. But I’d never pulled one from a booster pack. And here was Sarkhan Unbroken, red eyes glowing, that one pale strand of hair billowing as he stood astride the Tarkir he’d reforged, almost bursting out of the card in my hand. Call it a milestone. I’d started playing Magic as a kid with my dad, building elf decks and bird decks and trying very hard to get away with using creatures that tap for mana instead of more lands. (Bad idea, by the way.) I can still remember him holding four Hypnotic Specters—a full playset—and telling me how powerful they were. Not only could they fly and hit for two damage, but they forced the opponent to discard, which took away their options, too. Eye-opening, for a kid like me. We played from...

Strictly Casual – Dragon Combos by William D. O’Dell

Dragon Combos Up in the sky … Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a dragon about to rain down fire and destruction on all of those puny humans that inhabit the planes of Tarkir. And I have to admit that is AWESOME!!! Way back in the day, the OG dragons – the Elder Dragons – started off my fascination with dragons in Magic. That has continued to this day and this latest set has just made me giddy as a fat kid who just got a free pizza! I know this is only the second article and I’m talking about dragons again. The next article I will try to write about something other than dragons – oh wait no! The next one is about breaking a certain Unbroken planeswalker. Seriously what can I say the set is called Dragons of Tarkir. So let’s look at some of the key cards from each Dragonlord’s brood and see what kind of comborific fun we can have with one key card from each. And we will start with one of my favorite new cards – Foe-Razer Regent. Obviously this regent (one of five representing each colour) doesn’t necessarily represent a brood. That said, he will be representing Atarka since he pairs the best with the Gruul Ragebeast. What’s not to like? Put a critter in play and it...
