Chandra, Pyromaster Discussion

LeaPlath on Vexing Rakdos

Well the issue I see is you aren't running enough creatures. Midrange normally runs about 12-13, then 3-4 decent walkers to back up those threats as must answer cards. Which you are lacking. They also have access to man-lands to help apply pressure.

Drop all the Vexing Devil and Bump in the Night. For creatures you've got stuff like Thundermaw Hellkite, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Gurmag Angler, For walkers, Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope, Chandra, Pyromaster and Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

For removal, you can probably drop Doom Blade due to the prevalence of DS and Go for the Throat, instead play Fatal Push. Kolaghan's Command is also pretty sweet for recursion, mainboard artifact hate, damage and discard.

DarkEclipse18 on Best walker commander, not Atraxa

[UGH, accidentally hit Post and cannot see any way to edit my last post, so continuing!]

~Chandra, Pyromaster mostly I combine her with top to use her 0 and know i can cast the card OR to burn away a card I do not need

~Nahiri, the Harbinger + is a loot and - is nice removal under the right conditions

~Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker If I cast him...he can be chaos, no ability he has is bad, but at Also with God-Pharoah coming out, another nice red walker.

~Saheeli Rai Probably the weakest example of these walkers, but a + to scry and a - for an extra mana rock or Sad Robot can have it's uses.

~Finally the new Samut that is coming out is alright, but to be realistic she is a combo piece in the deck, dropping her after a doubling season seems to be the play here, so she can ult to grab 2 more walkers who can in turn ult. Her minus is meh and her plus is useless so debatable

nyctophasm on The Mardu Wastes

Fair enough. One of my favourite decks from before was when RTR-THE was standard, and I had a mardu brew before Mardu was a name, and it played:Chandra, Pyromaster, Boros Reckoner, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Stormbreath Dragon, Spark Trooper, Warleader's Helix, Magma Jet (one of the best cards in the deck because it set me up to avoid mana screw on turn two)etc.

Didn't do to badly either, so I wish I had a deck like it still. Nostalgia I guess, so its good to be brought back to earth with what is better modern playable stuff. I was also tickled pink, as it were, to see the Skred Red deck Kevin Mackie won with back a few months, and I wish there was a Mardu brew that could play stuff like it did.

KeelHaul10 on Ashling the burn deck

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.

Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.

BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!

You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,

Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!

Any reason you haven't changed Chandra, Pyromaster to Chandra, Torch of Defiance? In my Skred deck I made the switch and I would say it is definitely worth it. The versitility of her abilities makes the downside of not being able to get lands worthwhile.

Does Pyroclasm do it for you? I switched to Anger of the Gods as the exiling has come into handy more than I can count. the two damage definitely become worthwhile against tokens, but naya aggro (mainly consisting of Kird Ape, Loam Lion, Wild Nacatl, ect), abzan company decks (they play Eternal Witness so exiling is relevant there), and all of those types of decks Anger of the Gods has been very helpful. Maybe something to consider as well.

Lastly, has Goblin Dark-Dwellers performed well? It seems somewhat out of place here. It may be nice to get some of your removal spells back, but is it worthwhile for five mana? Potentially that could be more Chandras or another win condition (Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite, Wurmcoil Engine, ect). Just curious as to whether or not it is worthwhile in this kind of deck.

giz.moo on That 70s Burn (consistent 10 damage by Turn 2)

alrighty, considering i just made a burn deck that is somewhat similar i think i can offer some advice, i think it would be nice to add some Chain Lightning to your deck, Searing Blood is a little more consistent than searing blaze but that's personal preference, also for creatures its not bad to consider Kiln Fiendor Chandra's Spitfire or even Guttersnipealthough the creatures you have now are nice. If you're looking for a planeswalker that's low cost i'd suggest Chandra, Pyromaster. additionally another good burn card that's super fun is Book Burning which isn't too common so it works really well. Lastly i'd suggest adding a few Reverberate burn tends to struggle against life link, a good way to counter this if you come to this problem is Leyline of Punishment
