Chandra, Torch of Defiance Discussion

How. Thank you for all of the amazing feedback! Vraska's Contempt is a card that I definitely do want at some point. I'm trying to keep the deck budget (I was lucky enough to have pulled a Chandra, Torch of Defiance), but I might change some things around. I will definitely look into changing the mana base up a bit. Thank you for that input! I definitely agree with you; my deck has a lot of chance in it. I may include 2 copies of Sweltering Suns in the main board to help deal with those highly aggro decks. Also may add an extra Angrath, the Flame-Chained. Any thoughts?

Hazoret the Fervent and Chandra, Torch of Defiance alone are $55 in a $30 deck. Is WoTC trying to make them more accessible to lower their price$?

Wizards recently announced "Challenger Decks" as a replacement for the old Event Decks; today, the decklists were posted here.

These 75-card Standard decks have an MSRP of $29.99, and seem to actually have quite a lot of value in them. One contains Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Hazoret the Fervent and Glorybringer. Another contains a full playset of Heart of Kiran, Dragonskull Summit, Inspiring Vantage, and Concealed Courtyard. A third has 3 Verdurous Gearhulk and a Walking Ballista. I don't know about you all, but if all of the decks are like this, it could be a great way to lower the cost of Standard and help get new players into the format for cheap.

Thanks for the tip, this combo is very powerful and has a very reduced mana cost!I also think that the Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flipdoes not fit very well but, no problem, for one more mana I put a Chandra, Torch of Defiance and that yes fits very well ...I have difficulty knowing what shot to put two Vexing Devil and one Chandra, Torch of Defiance... Thanks!

Hello! I actually have several suggestions, primarily for the sideboard believe it or not! I just put a list together last week for Jace, and I never liked the breaching Emrakul plan so I'm pretty set against that in general, here goes...

For the sideboard, mine currently is,

1x Abrade2x Ancestral Vision2x Anger of the Gods2x Dispel2x Negate2x Vendilion Clique4x Young Pyromancer

The only thing I'm not sure about is the full set of Young Pyromancer, however, I'd only consider going down 1x to add in maybe 1 Batterskull. Your other options are adding the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion package, or maybe adding in some Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and maybe Harsh Mentor. There's a lot of flexibilty, you could add Chandra, Torch of Defiance or Chandra, Flamecaller. I have class now, so I'l leave this here and be back later as I have a few maindeck suggestions also! Nothing huge and probably more personal suggestions, but there's a lot we can do for your sideboard, especially if you know your local meta!

suggestion if you want to try: cancel red.

instead of 4x Lightning Bolt take in 4x Sadistic Sacrament

instead of 3x Pyroclasm take in 3x Zealous Persecution

instead of 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance take in 2x Dark Ritual

That is incredibly helpful in fact. Thank you! The trouble I have play testing this deck is that it leaves the opponent the choice of discarding or sacrificing. However, I am glad that you were at least able to see the synergy behind the deck. Discarding cards can be a hard thing people don't want to do, and Raiders' Wake punishes them even more for it. As a sidenote, I would side in Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Dire Fleet Daredevil, and Aether Meltdown. I would side out Chandra, Torch of Defiance for Gonti, Essence Scatter for Dire Fleet, Aether Meltdown replacing 1 Riddleform and the 1 copy of Dowsing Dagger  Flip. The feedback you gave was incredibly helpful. Thank you! Sounds like my deck almost performed exactly as it should, minus a card or two to make your hand size even smaller so you would sac creatures.

Hello! been going around looking at Neheb decks and giving suggestion because that's how much I love him! Saw your comment an another list asking for help to here I am!

Here's my list for reference: OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH

I think the single most important aspect of a mono red EDH deck is card draw. With Neheb, you having 5 cards late game is almost as good as say, a simic deck with 10 cards. That's how powerful Neheb is. In mine I run 14 ways to draw cards. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing if you can afford her, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is great with Neheb, as you exile the cards then because of all the damage , you have the mana to cast them, Humble Defector is pretty good, and again you can give him to the blue deck that already has enough cards, and you can also run Homeward Path as utility, Knollspine Dragon can be okay to great, is kinda hard to play and costs a lot, Loreseeker's Stone is good, trust me; you'll always have enough mana for it to benefit you, Prophetic Flamespeaker is nice especially early, risky though if you hit an important card too early so watch out, Sword of Fire and Ice if you can afford it does wonders for Neheb, damage and card draw, Throne of the High City and Arch of Orazca might be good as utility land slots, of which you can have a lot.

If you have card draw, it doesn't matter what else you do with the deck because it'll work fine because you're drawing and then ramping with Neheb!

So next are some random cards that I've found useful: Generator Servant for a turn 3 hasty Neheb, Viashino Heretic removal and damage, You might like Sizzle, and while I haven't tested Unstable Obelisk yet I think it'll be good.

Anyway, great start! Neheb is my #1 Favorite commander so if you ever need any help or have questions let me know/look at my primer!
