Sharkhan Vol was finally spoiled today on MTG.com. This was the first day of spoilers via the articles and it is a good idea because I wasn’t sure how long they were able to keep a lid on this guy. And holy dragon dung batman four dragons that are 4/4. I was expecting the third ability to be more along the lines of search your library for a dragon and put it into play or something more like dragon storm.
I see this as being a serious, serious addition to all agro decks everywhere. The first ability alone is something to be reckoned with. This really makes Goblin Assult feel a little more intoxicating.
I also love this guy in current Red/Green Hybrid decks. There is easily room for him especially with cards like Tattermunge Maniac and the red and green wither guys and well any other attacking creature.
The first thought that crossed my mind when I looked at the second ability is, “I could steal Chameleon Colossus with this.”
The only major disadvantage I see with Sarkhan Vol is the fact that he is a Mythic Rare. He will be twice as hard to find and twice as expensive. This will probably be true with most all the new mytic rares. It kind of sucks in my opinion. Hopefully with the reduced cards in the over all set will make a booster box more fruitful.
