No Escape can target the casting of a planeswalker such as Sarkhan the Masterless, but it cannot counter Sarkhin's ability that creates a 4/4 dragon creature. This is because No Escape can only target spells to counter then, but activating Sarkin's ability is not a spell, it is an activated ability.

Spells and abilities are separate things, even when they could both result in a similar outcome like creating a dragon creature. In order to counter an ability, you would need a card that allows you to do so, such as Stifle.
