Chandra, Pyromaster Discussion

Gidgetimer on Edh rulings and cascade rules

You're very welcome.

The point of multiple threads for unrelated or tangentially related questions is that it helps others searching for an answer. Whether it be on a google search or perusing the answered questions, a concise title for a single question is more likely to be viewed. It also broadens the scope a bit from your specific deck to a more generalized topic to assist more people.

For example only 4 is really about the rules of cascade and only 5 is about the rules of EDH. 1 and 1' are about the interaction of Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and Chandra, Pyromaster. 2 is about if Xenagos, the Reveler's Ult counts as casting. 3 is about what constitutes a permanent entering the battlefield. If you had instead broke the question into five questions you are more likely to help a greater number of people via them reading your question and the answers to it.

I personally don't care too much about multiple questions in a thread. I am just a knowledgeable user though, not an administrator. Therefore; I am concerned about ensuring that the site contains fully correct and clear information instead of trying to streamline the site itself. I probably should have mentioned that the administrators prefer a separate post for each question but it wasn't as important to me as ensuring you had correct answers to all of your questions.

Magicalswift on Edh rulings and cascade rules

3 days ago

I have a few ruling questions for some cards in my Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck

1.When i use Chandra, Pyromaster's second ability and i play the card does cascade works on the card i played

  1. Again with Chandra, Pyromaster but this time its for her third ability does the cascade skill triggers for the 3 copies of the instant or sorcery i exiled

  2. Xenagos, the Reveler -6 does it count as casting a card ?

  3. If i have Altar of the Brood on the field does a card i cast from cascade triggers the skill

  4. When i cast a card with X and a green ( the X being 5) how does it work with cascade does it count as a 6 or just 1

  5. I know that in a commander deck you can only use cards with the same mana symbols as the one your commander have but what of a card like Naya Panorama when it says the name and doesn't show any color symbol does the same rules apply

hey! thanks for the advices :)

I am going to develop this deck with further IRL testing instead of MTGO in a few weeks (just waiting for the rest of the cards to arrive). I actually have Koth of the Hammer, Chandra, Torch of Defiance and a full playset of Blood Moon... I actually have the current Skred list (the one that won the GP), but ever since I startet playing this list on MTGO, I had too much fun with it...

So for now, I am going to use Chandra, Pyromaster not because I have to, but because I choose to. her +1 (ping) is more powerful than given credit for and her 0 is a type of card advantage, which is very rare in Red .

Even though Chandra, Torch of Defiance has a similar "exile top card" effect, I miss that 1 ping damage.

Searing Blaze is one that interests me. I've been given that advice by some friends before, but never gave it too much credit. But I'll look into it.

Combustible Gearhulk deserves some testing also. I am only a little bit afraid that it doesn't do much. On one hand we get a possible 3 draws, on the other hand the chances of it not dealing damage to the opponent (if him/her chooses not to give us 3 draws) is real. There are 24 lands on the deck and many cheap drops. I'd say the average damage dealt to the opponent would be 5 and if their health isn't low enough, that could be troublesome.... Anyways, I do not discard this option yet. I think it has potential and I'll test it also.

Thanks again man.Take care :)

So i bought a pack awhile ago, and it came with Obelisk of Urd it wasn't a normal card, it was foil, but not only foil it was miscut to the point you could see another cards name on the bottom of it Chandra, Pyromaster i heard foil miscuts were the price of the first card +$10 just checking here to see what its really worth, its been double sleeved ever since, and unused.

TeamSDBags on Budget Mardu midrange

3 weeks ago


First of all interesting deck! I hope it gets more attention around the site, as most people see mardu as just mardu nahiri decks and don't look at other ways of building the deck. I have some suggestions that are both very budget friendly and would improve a lot of your matchups against decks currently in the modern meta.

  1. Cut a Night's Whisper and a Gurmag Angler and mainboard 2x Anger of the Gods the reason for this is because dredge and infect are very weak to this card, and is extremely good against the current modern meta that is centered towards aggro decks.

  2. Cut the swiftspears and Soulfire Grand Master in favor of either more tokens like Timely Reinforcements and Mardu Charm and some planeswalkers. Such planeswalkers can inlclude Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Chandra, Pyromaster, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad The reason I say this is because the tokens allow you to play around the most popular decks in the format that can get around cards like Butcher or kill it (ex. Jund/Junk). Hero of Bladehold is another possibility for this.

  3. I can tell that your mana base is budget, but I think you need to make some considerations here, Clifftop Retreat, Foreboding Ruins, and Dragonskull Summit are all great cards, but require you to be playing a mana base of shocks to support them, since you need the quality of the basic lands, which you only play 3 of. I'd cut these for either more fastlands or painlands like Sulfurous Springs.

  4. In the sideboard I'd consider playing Slaughter Games over maybe anger and maybe a sin protector or something, as it lets you take out combo deck pieces without worry.

  5. I'd cut gurmag angler for planeswalkers/ more tokens as you need to wait a while to cast it since you don't have a lot of graveyard filling.

Rats show your problems I think:

True: you can only have upto 4x copies of a card in your deck (a Playset), unless otherwise stated: Relentless Rats.

True: But you can have 4x of Pack Rat and make as many tokens as you want.

As for what a Token is:

True: I think you asked "they aren't cards per say". They are WHATEVER you choose it to be. A penny? I depends on how it was put there that counts. They are what was told to be put into play. A Copy of a card, or just a 2/2 Black Zombie Token from Vile Rebirth say. And you can have as many tokens as you want... another example: 2x Hornet Queen possibly means 8x 1/1 deathtouch hornets OTB and 2x hornet queens also.

as for something like Portal/Godsend... you CREATE a token that is a COPY of the Exiled Card, say a penny. The word "Legendary" is copied too. you just got lazy and didn't write it on the penny!

Same out come will happen when Hard-Casting a card. If you Equip Godsend to your 1st Rat on the battlefield, say, and play a 2nd Godsend OTB to your side, choose one and the other is sent to the Graveyard. (I think keep the Equip'ed one in this case).

But Legendary rules were changed and you AND YOUR opponent can both now have, Say a Godsend, on BOTH sides of the field.

As for planeswalkers; same as Legendary rules; two on your side and keep only one, of your choice. BUT, Chandra, Pyrogenius is the same as Chandra, Pyromaster ... Legendary or Planeswalker on the middle line of Card Identification..... Planeswalker - Chandra... they both cannot be on the Battlefield at the same time, Or the "Legendary Rule" applies...

hopefully that helps. cheers

I know this deck is explicitly aimed at me.I do like the deck though haha. I don't know if Chandra, Pyromaster and Unstable Obelisk do enough for you. Thought Vessel and Fellwar Stone seem like they could be replaced by some better mana rocks like Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo. But other than that looks good. Thumbs up

I am not sure I would describe red's philosophy as "borrowing from the future" - caring about the future at all is more Blue's thing. Red just doesn't care about the future so it has a number of mechanic that give it immediate advantage for a long-term loss. It's why rituals are in Red now, and it's the flavor behind "impulsive drawing" (or "Yolo drawing" as I like calling it, I mean the ability on Chandra, Pyromaster and Outpost Siege): you can get stuff as long as you get it right now and use it right now.
