Chandra, Pyromaster Discussion
1 day ago
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.

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

Oh wow, I really love all the synergy in this. Almost every card choice feels really on theme.
A few thoughts on cards to help with discarding:
Daretti, Scrap Savant is good at both discarding, seeing more cards, and helping you get back artifacts you may have discarded.
Chandra, Flamecaller is another good one for emptying and refilling your hand - I'm not sure that it's significantly better than Chandra Ablaze all of the time, but it certainly seems like an upgrade.
Tormenting Voice and/or Cathartic Reunion also seem like strong options.
Separately, if you're already running Outpost Siege, how do you feel about Chandra, Torch of Defiance or Chandra, Pyromaster? Both get you additional card advantage, and Torch can also help ramp you if needed.

I really need to build a deck around this guy...
I have a couple of suggestions for you. First is Gamble. Fantastic card, the only time I can really say it's disappointing is if you're top-decking at that point. Or you discard the card you tutor... But that just depends on your luck.
Second. Replace Chandra, Pyromaster with Chandra, Flamecaller. Far more useful to you. You can get rid of all of the cards in your hand that aren't useful to you any more and get a fresh set of cards. Plus, she can clear the board of a surprising number of creatures - even in EDH - and if nothing else, she makes a couple of guys for you to swing around.
Third. Wheels. Cards like Magus of the Wheel are fantastic for red decks. Not only are you going to run out of cards in hand fast, but you're opponents are likely to constantly have more cards in hand than you. And thus, more to lose from you wheeling. Wheel of Fate, Wheel of Fortune and Chandra Ablaze are other cards that can do this for you.
Fourth. Word of Seizing. Okay, so this is more of a fun card. It might be a little too slow for your deck. But I recently discovered this card when someone used it to steal my Jace, Unraveler of Secrets on 8 loyalty counters. I still can't believe I managed to win after that... But yes, it can be a ridiculously helpful card in the right scenario.
Fifth. Harsh Mentor. As stated in a previous comment, hilariously good card in mono-red. So mana activated abilities in EDH, it's going to be burning people so often. (I mostly hate it because it really weakens Lightning Greaves.
Speaking of, sixth. Lightning Greaves, and to a lesser point Swiftfoot Boots. People are going to want Zo-Zu dead. Simple as that. While this won't protect him from wraths, Black has lost all of the common ways to kill Zo-Zu, Blue can't bounce him easily and White is forced to wrath if they want rid of him. Sure, Green isn't going to care particularly, they'll just be forced to use Krosan Grip before their Beast Within, but it still can be handy.
Seventh. Obsidian Fireheart. You've already punished them for playing lands, so why not punish them for having lands in the first place? In all seriousness, this is a pretty good mana sink, and there are going to be turns where you don't have anything else to spend your mana on. While it can only target lands that aren't already on fire, it can still quickly drain your opponent's life, especially if you have that Caged Sun out. Three red land, two lands burning away.
My final suggestion is somewhat more tentative, since while it is a really good card, in this deck it's pretty dependent on you hitting yourself with your commander. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. It's a lot better than Hellion Crucible, especially if you aren't running any land recursion or proliferate effects, but it does require land ETBs.
Oh, one or two more cards. Blasted Landscape and Smoldering Crater are some more lands with cycling you can run, which might be nice in your deck. Gauntlet of Might and Gauntlet of Power are both essentially Caged Suns. Sensei's Divining Top and Gilded Lotus are both great. Sol Ring is one of the best mana rocks in existence. Subterranean Tremors and By Force are pretty good. Chaos Warp and to a lesser extent Divergent Transformations are really useful if you can't deal with something. And Charmbreaker Devils are always helpful to have around, but may be a little too pricey for your deck mana-wise.
... I need to stop before I've just built a deck in your comments. These are just suggestions from what I've seen from some other red players (plus the start of my research into building a Red deck), so I can't guarantee them all being good ideas, but they may help you.
Also, I'm aware that some of the suggestions I made are almost hilariously expensive, but they are just suggestions and the most expensive one you'll probably want should be dropping in price at the moment since it was banned in another format, if I recall.
Now... Do I finish a deck or start a new one? Choices...

Chandra, Flamecaller is fine, but it is a bit higher on the mana curve. I prefer Chandra, Torch of Defiance for card advantage and ramp, and Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip because it triggers Purphoros. An argument can be made for Chandra, Pyromaster as well for card advantage reasons.
