@link3343: Why not run Ral Zarek? Maybe because you're not in blue?

Blue/red decks are likely going to run counterspells (which her 0 is wasted on) and have better ways of drawing cards. She's intended as a way to get pseudo-card-draw in mono-red, as well as helping aggro break through a tough defense. If you're in blue, you're right, you should run Ral instead. You're also not playing the kind of deck she's meant for.

@Ferlord: You're right, if you don't use the card this turn, it's gone. That's not really what I consider "risk," though.

Unless you're running some kind of tutor/fetch, an exiled card is just as inaccessible as a card at the bottom of your library. And again, if you're tutoring, you're probably in blue (and probably running Ral Zarek, just like the last guy). The only "risk" here is that if you can't use the card, it's as if you didn't draw it, and so you just wasted her ability for the turn. You got no advantage that turn, but didn't get... (see all)

Opened her at pre-release.

From playtesting her, she encompasses red pretty well. If you're on the offensive she's an absolute nuisance. Conversely, if you're on the defensive, she's almost worthless. Her 0 ability can help you rifle through your deck for answers, but that's it. Easily the best Chandra ever made, but still conditional.

4/5

Oh ho ho ho, say what? Lets take a look at this sexy red planeswalker:

+1: The meat of this and what makes this really juicy is not that you can shoot a creature and it can't block, but that you get to shoot both a creature and a player. Let me just say this, as a player who enjoys playing burn, it infinitely more fun to throw burn spells such as Lightnight Bolts, your Comet Storm, or whatever other burn spells you're playing, if you can throw them at a player, you throw them at a player and only use a select few burn cards (Pilar of Flame, Mizzium Mortars etc.) to deal with creatures. That's awesome. And no need to worry about things like Spellskite redirecting that one damage, it's gong to the player. And trust me, every bit of ammunition in burn counts, and getting repeatable burn that will always get through to the player, even if it's at sorcery speed, is very awesome, not to... (see all)

@GhostCounselor: Unfortunately, her -0 ability doesn't say, "without paying its mana cost." So it's like a card draw, but a little weaker, in that you have to play it this turn or lose it.

I'm a little biased against this card because of Wizard's decision to name it Pyromaster when there is another card in this set which has the word Pyromancer. Not cool, guys.

That said, she is probably the best Chandra that has been printed so far, although I still doubt she will see much constructed play.

4/5

Cruel Ultimatum seems too good to be true with that ultimate. Target opponent sacrifices three creatures, discards nine cards, and loses fifteen life. You get three dead creatures back to your hand, draw nine cards, and gain fifteen life. If that's not "win target game", I don't know what is.

The new Chandra synchronizes perfectly with Izzet. Imagine that ultimate being used on teleportal or mizzium mortars to wipe out an entire board or the enemy itself! About time!
