    Just a quick note to the above solutions regarding the strategy fighting Sorin Markov.

    I tried different decks and strategy's while fighting Sorin including White, Black, Elves, Claws of Vengeance and the dragon deck (forgot the name), but the deck that is probably the most useful is the new mono red deck.

    It consist of mostly spell (instant & sorcery) cards (seriously, go check it out!), so whenever Sorin plays a monster card you just use a spell card to counter that. On my first try with this deck I completely steamrolled him by just using spell cards and one monster card. Give the new mono red deck a try if your struggling with Sorin Markov!

    To clarify: I won with just a 'clean' deck, no extra cards unlocked. (Thanks to G0RILLA FINGER)

    A Dreadful ShotGreat solution, Heat of Battle deck is the way to go. Beat him first try using that deck after struggling with the mono black deck (which I used against everyone successfully up to that point).

    Markov's deck can be tough. A low mana curve makes his side of the battlefield beastly before you can really get started. He also has a few "win now" cards that might as well restart the game for you.

    Play it on the easiest difficulty if you'd like.

    I used the Claws of Vengeance deck (white/red/green), and Wrath of God (followed by a couple Bull Ceredons) was invaluable. I imagine the mono-white deck would work well also for that reason, not to mention the flying Walls. But seriously, you're almost depending on a Wrath of God.

    You may just wanna keep trying until you get lucky and Markov droughts and can no longer keep up with you.

    Good luck!

    This guy is one tough cookie he almost always draws hes vampire that cost one black to play and it becomes a pain. I did this over 26 times and finally did it with the new chandra red deck, you have to use this deck or any deck that kills or destroys his creatures fast that is why i suggest red and always save a destroy card or damage card becuase he will pull something big out his ass i can promise you this. Just stay at it. hope this helps.
