For me so far, Chandra has been a very good Planeswalker for the deck. Chandra, Pyromaster
's +1 is good for small damage to weenies and to put slight pressure each turn. Her 0 ability has amazing synergy with Jace, the Living Guildpact
's +1 so you can dig down two cards and find something to possibly cast for the turn. Seeing anything cast able with it can put you ahead by a few turns because you didn't have to wait to draw it. Chandra, Pyromaster
's 0 also works extremely well when you tutor off of Liliana Vess
, mainly because you can search for answer, put it on top, then 0 Chandra, Pyromaster
and cast your answer on the same turn without having to wait a whole turn to gain access to the card you placed on top with Liliana. The big thing with playing Chandra is that she gives a lot of "top-deck-answering".
When it comes to using Liliana Vess 's tutor ability, is one of the few things that is not concrete. It depends on what's on the board for me. If my opponent has a lot of low toughness creatures, like Fleecemane Lion or Elspeth, Sun's Champion tokens, I'll pull out an Anger of the Gods . Or if the board is littered with a few Master of the Feast or other Stormbreath Dragon ill tutor for a Hero's Downfall or a Silence the Believers (especially if I have extra mana for it's strive cost. If my board presence is ahead, ill tutor for any of my perments that I do not have out. (Most likely a Planeswalker). Hell, I've even tutored for a Negate only because I knew there was a big spell coming up that wasn't a creature. So really it's that kind of utility that makes tutoring in this deck outstanding.
Hopefully that sorta explains my thought on the deck, I've gotten some critisim on the deck before and I really try to explain things as best as possible. So if it makes no sense at all, Ill try again to describe the flow of the deck. The deck's main strength is the synergy between it's permanents and the amount of removal and denial the deck has to offer. So yea, hopefully that helps man!! Thanks for the +1!
How well do you find that Chandra, Pyromaster works in this deck? I can't seem to figure out how she'd work that well. I mean, I can figure out what she'd work such as possibly finding Removal spells, copying burn, but is that about it?
+1 for the deck! Grixis Control will be the new Control deck once RTR is gone!
KungPowBacon: Tried the dragons before, I still sometimes put them back in if I need more creatures. Keranos, God of Storms is too reliant on devotion for me, I've opted for Chandra, Pyromaster since it lets me remove cards I don't want to play or let me play lands out of the way, instead of just drawing them.
Temple of Plenty - 1
Polis Crusher - 4
her +1 and 0 abilities would fit nicely in here
Really well done!
I would add Inferno Titan for his sheer power and capabilities to destroy combo pieces.
I love Mercurial Chemister and his card draw!
The same goes for Arcanis the Omnipotent .
Anyway, +1 :)
Like the deck alot, im using a mono red variant atm, but may try this out. Have you considered Chandra, Pyromaster I would probably be more inclined to use it over purpheros in this list, making creatures unable to block is ideal, it deals with weenies, and can give you much needed card draw. Plus hypothetically, imagine ulting her to Twinflame a Goblin Rabblemaster 3 times or giving all your goblins double strike with a copied boros charm. ;)
I may contemplate taking 1 Chandra, Pyromaster out for a Stormbreath Dragon . But as of right now, the synergy between her and Jace, the Living Guildpact 's +1 and also with Liliana Vess 's -2 makes Chandra really good for me so far. But hey, if I get my Dragons I'll try to make room for em for sure man. Thanks for the tip!
