The best Chandra of all time. But that's like saying Rakdos has the best Keyrune.

This is not going to be the TOURNAMENT equivalent of "Jace the Mind Sculptor in Red" but...from a "Represent" standpoint, yeah this is "Chandra the Flame Sculptor" :D

1. the +1 is thankfully a little better than previous Chandras. I think I prefer being able to Multi-target as opposed to loading up into a full Bolt, if that Bolt would only be allowed to affect a creature, or only affect a player. I dunno, I'd have to play more with her, but it seems good.

2. The 0 ability is so cool AND flavorful! She roasts her own library to chuck at the opponents' face. I'm not sure how I'd rate Chandra, Pyromaster vs. Koth of the Hammer. I feel like Koth wants to be about the middle of the mana curve of his deck, whereas I think Chandra really wants to be PRACTICALLY the tippy-top. The more % of your deck is CMC < 3, the better her 0 ability is, obviously. Red REALLY shouldn't have trouble with this.

Here's a fun challenge before I evaluate her Ultimate: Pretend she's only got 2 abilities. U... (see all)

Chandra's slowly getting more and more excessively complex, and I don't think I like it. Not every Red mage wants their spells to be doing 17 things at once. Some of us just want to burn things.

@ Totema

easier to just mycosynth lattice + vandalblast

Why yes, I DO have three lava axes in my deck, why do you ask?

I'm copying index three times so that I can get the correct order even if I screw it up the first two times.

Once again Chandra, you dissapoint me.
4, comes in with 4 isn't bad. But you're not gonna wanna zero then (you play her fourth turn, 0: Exile a land, cant be played). Most likely plus when she comes in, but by that time, the 1 damage wont do much. Against not a creature heavy deck, 1dmg a turn is not enough. Against creature heavy deck, 1damage, is still not enough.
She is meant to be used in an aggressive strategy though. Maybe a lot of vigilance creatures, play her, make creature not block, attack opponent, and have blockers to protect her, but then, why not just run Ral Zarek

The one thing that I do like about her is the flexibility of the +1. You can even go to combat, swing your 2 power guy into their 3 toughness blocker, threatening to finish it off post-combat. Of course, they won't block, and you'll get to play a free card with her 0 ability on your 2nd main phase!

@blurrymadness You're kidding, right? This is a decent card, but NOWHERE even close to Jace 2.0 power levels.

Any other redhead lovers present feel cheated?

Chandra Nalaar - mediocre at best. There are faster and more efficient ways to handle all of the effects she offers and you don't have to defend them from enemy attack. The art introduced her. It was pretty good, but beyond worn out now.

Chandra Ablaze - arguably the best one if she didn't cost so much to play and use. She would absolutely annihilate in Grixis if her ultimate didn't cost as much as her cmc does. Too costly, it can be done more efficiently. The art was in your face, but most of the art of her is. It'd have been nice to see something else. It worked for this card given the name though.

Chandra, the Firebrand - it just sucks. Let's be honest peeps. I would also vote it for having the worst art in the bunch. Her second ability is good, but coming in with only 3 loyalty counters and costing 2 to play it's difficult to capitalize on it. Reverberate is just better.

Chandra, Pyromaster - better than Nalaar and Firebrand, but n... (see all)

Man, they just can't stop amping up Chandra's +1s, can they?
