I've not had the pleasure of reading Magic The Gathering (MTG) "Teeth of Akoum" Zendikar book yet even though its been around a few years now. I play alot of MTG and Sarkhan Vol is probably one of my favorite Planeswalkers, and I always wonder what has happened to him after he became Sarkhan the mad after Nicol Bolas sent him to Zendikar to await Jace and Chandra at the 'Eye of Ugin' where the Eldrazi had been trapped.
Im aware that the answer may contain possible spoilers, but as Nicol Bolas has the power to bring people back from the dead if he deems them worthy of further use in his master plan, I'm wondering if he would let Sarkhan die/remain dead if he were killed?
Edit: I should note that my prompts for asking this question is not out of laziness to read the book, as quotes from the books appear on the actual game cards as flavour text to give you a taste of the story line which has increased my interest in reading this book. Also, often game card's mechanics reflect events that happen within the story. Planeswalkers are god-like mortals (they have they power of a god and can teleport to other planes/dimensions, but can die if mortally wounded). This is reflected in the characters card by the ability to heal itself from injury, but Sarkhan is the only planeswalker that has no heal option, his only function is to eventually die if you use him, which is why I asked this question.
This is the card representing him within the novel (going mad) waiting at the eye of Ugin. The 7 at bottom right is his life and the 3 options down the left side basically kill him when used, normally there would be a +1 option (healing) so that he may live through the use of the minus options.
