Shu Yun khan of the Jeskai, leapt from the window of the stronghold tower. After a time of falling he landed on one of Sulimgars’ dragons and used an ancient martial technique, slamming his fist into a particular point on the dragon’s skull.
The dragon fell unconscious and with great agility Shu Yun pushed away and landed in a crouching position, also a practiced maneuver by the monks, to land on the ground without harm.
The dragon itself crashed, the impact killing it.
As the scribe of this annul, Shu Yun was my master and mentor and he told be of his intentions on placing the scrolls in a safe room under the stronghold. This is what he did next.
When Shu Yun remerged into the courtyard from safeguarding the scrolls, the great dragonlord, Ojutai, flew above, then settled gracefully on the ground in front of the Jeskai khan.
Shu Yun spoke, "Ojutai". He spread his arms wide, palms out. "You know who I am. You know what I've done. Once I dreamed of facing you again, of testing my skill against yours. But I come to you now with a different purpose."
Shu Yun dropped to his knees, looking up at Ojutai.
Shu Yun looked past where Ojutai was standing and to where I the scribe was watching this event taking place and he bowed in the Jeskai formal way. I bowed deeply back.
Shu Yun spoke, "Kill me. Kill everyone who bears the mark of a dragon slayer, if you must. I offer you my life. But please, I beg you, as one teacher to another, spare my clan."
After Ojutai spoke in draconic, his dragonspeaker translated "The dragonlord agrees to your terms."
Ojutai jaws opened, and blasted his ice breath at Shu Yun.
The khan of the Jeskai fell.
Quote from martind1111 »Darren,
I really liked the design of your Voltron deck. I have been trying to find deck ideas around my Breed Lethality commander deck and I have mostly focused on Atraxa (I went as far as removing Ishai from the deck all together!). But I really like the idea of focusing on the Partnet mechanic and building protection around Ishai.
Some comments on the deck:
At first, I did not quite understand why Attrition was in this deck. I was looking everywhere for token generator of some kind, but could not find any, until I figured out that Blade of Selves would create copies of the commander that could be sacrificed... Quite clever...One of the strong win conditions of this deck seems to be able to get the Blade of Selves on the battlefield. There seems to be enough tutors (I think adding Sunforge Mystic was a good addition), but what if this equipment is destroyed or exiled?I am not sure I like the inclusion of Greater Good. I'd probably need to play this deck some times before I can figure out if it is worthy. You need to sacrifice a card with power of at least 3 to get some card advantage. Wondering if it would not be better to have a card like Sphinx's Revelation or Perilous Forays instead.I am not sure there is enough recursion in the deck.
I will definitely test this deck in my local playgroup. Thanks for your efforts publishing the deck and the different improvements you have made these last few weeks.

Quote from Jonas Ukulore »I had a blast with this! Thanks for the inspiration. I substituted Thassa, God of the Sea with Loxodon Warhammer. Do you think this is a good idea? Perhaps this should be Behemoth Sledge?
