Chandra, Pyromaster Discussion

Ah, I have a few more notes to the changes.
I've playtested the deck a couple of times, and it feels much better than afore. Nice!
So, Field of the Dead is best used with fewer basics, as that provides fewer shared names across the land-base and thus making its zombies spawn reliably. Brains ahoy.
Now for another field as subject. Field of Ruin is helpful, for removing lands is necessary in any deck, but it ramps all players, including the ones not involved in this interaction. Strip Mine is expensive, as with Wasteland, but a Tectonic Edge would be better.
The last thing I would recommend is some more card draw. The deck ramps really well and Radha is a fine outlet for said mana, but a few cantrips or draw engines would be great. You can probably cut a land or two, but I wouldn't go much further than that. Outpost Siege is a reliable one.

Hi Abraxas3719 thank you, I'm glad you like it! Tana & Bruse are a deceptively powerful pair, and for a Naya deck it is surprisingly versatile. It's so cool that you're building a deck for your daughter! Assemble the Legion would fit right in a deck like this one, and there are plenty of Chandras that would fit nicely: Chandra, Acolyte of Flame, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Fire Artisan, Chandra, Pyromaster.
I actually wrote an article on how to style deck pages, you can check it out here

Hey , thanks for the reply! The meta is extremely creature heavy. That's why I'm running Harsh Scrutiny in the mainboard (which I might replace with a Despise instead), with a third Duress in the sideboard to swap out when needed. We calculate based on the price on MTGGoldfish and I'm at $102 right now (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/2290506#paper), so you're probably right about Inquisition of Kozilek
We only have one burn-ish deck (which also happens to be me running a mono-red prowess variant), so I feel like lifegain can live in the sideboard for now (e.g. Pulse of Murasa & Spike Feeder ). I chose Grisly Salvage over Pulse of Murasa because I was getting mana-screwed pretty regularly. The cheap land package is really difficult to do in these particular three colours. But, Grisly Salvage is a card that I can use when I need to grab a land or when I want to grab a potentially game-swinging threat. And, I feel like since I'm not running fetches or anything that tosses things into the graveyard Pulse of Murasa will only grab low-cmc creatures that I had played earlier in the game rather than massive hulks that can swing things in my favour. That being said, Pulse of Murasa may be better in the late game, but worse in the early game (which is where I have trouble).
As for Aether Hub , I've felt like it's value is extremely dependent on getting Winding Constrictor or Glint-Sleeve Siphoner out. If you are desperate and have to use its energy counter, Aether Hub can be a dead land due to the high number of coloured spells in the deck. That's why I cut one. But, when it goes off, it really goes off! TBH, the land base is where this version of the deck really struggles (as well as the reliance on the Winding Constrictor / Glint-Sleeve Siphoner combo). So, any additional thoughts on these issues would be super helpful!
Bristling Hydra is a super interesting addition and might help with my Aether Hub problem. I'm worried it might be a bit slow and isn't a big enough payoff in the 4cmc slot. Greenbelt Rampager might also work in here. I honestly am not sure about either of those. I'll give it a shot either way!
Champion of Lambholt might also be a bit slot. On turn 4 and beyond, the plan is basically to play one big creature a turn (hopefully). So, I feel like Champion of Lambholt won't grow fast enough. I think you recommended Managorger Hydra in a comment thread earlier. Do you think either of these is better than Sprouting Thrinax in this deck?
Also, do you have a preference between Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle ? I guess the threat and the ability to grow Scavenging Ooze with Phyrexian Revoker isn't worth the vulnerability it has as a creature. Pithing Needle is probably the better choice.

Sonic Assault , Chandra, Pyromaster , Pariah's Shield are what I would definitely cut. Sonic because it's kinda packing for the format, Pyromaster because her first and second abilities can be done better by other cards. Pariah's Shield because it's high costed and pariah is so much cheaper. I might also switch champions helm for Lightning greaves.

If Rebounding Spellburn would be cast or copied by a player who isn't its owner, it deals 3 damage to its caster/controller.
Draw a card for each copy of Rebounding Spellburn.
Rebound (If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast this card from exile without paying its mana cost.)
Few rules reminders: copies are not rebounded; only the original. So what would you do with this card outside of Hive Mind ? I think it could easily fit in a Storm deck ( Thousand-Year Storm comes to mind), as well as spells like Doublecast and Bonus Round and permanents like Chandra, Pyromaster and Cloven Casting .
The card itself does nothing if it is not copied or stolen. But if it is copied even once, it grows exponentially: one copy means that the original draws you 1 card and the new copy draws you 1 card. Two copies means that the original draws you two cards, the first copy draws you two cards, and the second copy draws you two cards (six cards!). Echo Mage wants you to play this.

I like the theme of this, would you consider cards that can copy themselves and have the words “Cast the copy”?
From reading the text on the commander I think that would trigger her twice,
AEthertow or other cards with conspire and/or storm and replicate.
Chandra, Pyromaster ultimate allows you to cast copies.
You could also use cards with the cipher mechanic, Hidden Strings .
Just a few ideas :)
