Chandra, Torch of Defiance Discussion

I honestly think Chandra, Torch of Defiance rules over all other Chandras when it comes to Neheb (regardless if some consider her better by default). Her plus ability to essentially generate 6 mana a turn, her ultimate generates 5 mana a SPELL (or creature removal, whatevs), plus her own ramp.

I expect I'm not the first person to say this but I want to make Commander decks for the Archenemy: Nicol Bolas set. I figure it would be a lot of fun and something nifty to have.
I will be wanting all decks in paper, as that's when they will be played. I will want them (semi)balanced, as in the Archenemy doesn't win every game but has a good chance.
I figure this also gives me an opportunity to add Gatewatch members that aren't playable in the box set. Ajani, Jace, and Liliana are all missing.
Doing this creates a Commander decision issue. Would I use the creature cards? If I did that, Ajani couldn't have a deck.
- Nicol Bolas
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip
- Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip
- Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip
- Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip
- Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip
There is also the possibility of using their namesake cards as the Commander. This would give it a better feeling of Planeswalkers battling as each would at least be in the Command Zone and would be much easier to cast each game.
- Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
- Gideon Jura
- Jace Beleren
- Liliana Vess
- Chandra Nalaar
- Nissa Revane
- Ajani Goldmane
Along the same line of using a Planeswalker as the Commander, I could just pick their best version to use that.
The question would then be, what to do for Nissa and Ajani? Would I use Mono Walkers, or their Multi colored cards for more variety. What supports this idea is that Nissa's Precon deck is .
I believe Ajani would probably be the better strategy, but fits thematically as that was the Walker released in the Ajani v. Bolas Duel Deck.
Anybody have thoughts, opinions, help to offer? Commander choices will be important, whether the decks have other Planeswalker cards in them matters, overall deck strategy for each character would help.

@BlazingAbsol - Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely wanted to fit Chandra, Torch of Defiance, but can't imagine running more than a singleton with only 20 lands. I dropped Howling Mine, which I've been looking to do for a while, and replaced it with 1x Chandra and 3x Dangerous Wager. Wager will help when I'm top decking without helping my opponent, and Chandra will be an excellent source of regular card advantage.

I found a pretty good sideboard guide for using Pummeler that is applicable to most of the current builds: http://www.mtgmintcard.com/articles/writers/soh-weng-heng/sideboard-guide-for-red-green-pummeler.
I also updated my deck list here Pummeler Smash with the cumulative sideboards from the more recent successful Pummeler builds. 21 decks in total, including a few of the Temur builds. It's interesting to see how often the different sideboard options show up.

- Brightstone Ritual
- Battle Hymn
- Seething Song
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
- Koth of the Hammer
- Neheb, the Eternal
Hope this helps!

I'm a big fan of Ruination in mono-red decks.
Drownyard Temple is fun with Daretti, and also fun with MLD.
I had completely forgotten about Nullstone Gargoyle! I'm definitely picking it up ASAP.
How has Gonti's Aether Heart faired for you?
I'm not a huge fan of Anvil of Bogardan or Blinkmoth Urn, since your opponents benefit before you do. I've had way too many games where multiple opponents gained 2-4 mana from the Urn, only for one of them to blow it up before I could use it.

psychosmurf96 Hmm... interesting adaption! I just don't enjoy using Chandra, Torch of Defiance as the only reason I see her in the deck is to ramp into Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, but she does it extremely infrequently
