Standard Commander: Surrak Dragonclaw

Welcome to Commander Month everyone! Every Monday this month, you'll get to see an EDH deck featuring cards legal in Standard. Each deck will utilize one of the three-color "Khans" from Khans of Tarkir as its Commander and all the cards will come from Standard sets, from Khans of Tarkir to Oath of the Gatewatch.

This week, I present to you a deck featuring Surrak Dragonclaw.

Descent of the Dragons  Sarkhan Unbroken  Dragon Tempest

Just like last week's deck featuring Zurgo Helmsmasher, this deck features Dragons, except a lot more heavily than last week. With the inclusion of Sarkhan Unbroken as the only three colored planeswalker in Standard (and fitting only within a Temur deck), it seemed fitting to make the deck all about dragons, especially with his ultimate which let's you play as many dragons from your deck as you can. Fortunately for you, I can tell you that number is 19. 17 creatures and two legendary creatures. There are also plenty of opportunities for making tokens and utilizing the dragons to deal direct damage.
