Chandra's Phoenix Discussion

Oroskan on Phoenix Discard tribal

1 day ago

This was designed to be a deck that used burn spells somewhat sparingly to get deal with anything that could stop the phoenixes from hitting for flying damage, and to get back Chandra's Phoenix from the graveyard. The idea is that it is a aggro variant that uses lots of evasive creatures that are hard to remove to get in consistent flying damage, and to discard pheonixes that can be returned in order to utilise the increased efficency of cards such as Jaya Ballard, Task Mage and Lightning Axe. I would classify it as a aggro deck, but one that's goal is not to win fast, but to establish a board presence that can be reccured.

Thinking about replacing the 2x Chandra's Phoenix with more Blightning or the Faithless Looting, any thoughts??

Thanks for the suggestion 13loodknight. Chandra's Phoenix is not only a good replacement, but it is also a very cheap card. FIZZBOG, wouldn't I need to use Boros Charm on Boros Reckoner and then target him with Volcano Hellion or Blasphemous Act? I could also give him Lifelink, just to make it fun. I might have to play around with that combo. Many have suggested it before, I have just been unwilling to buy all of the cards and change the deck until now. I'm kinda getting bored with the current deck.

Instead of changing Skyknight Legionnaire to Mantis Rider try changing it to Chandra's Phoenix which is the same thing but returns to hand everytime you cast a burn at your opponent.

I have some suggestions. Keep in mind, I'm not saying any of these cards are better than the ones you have going on or even that they are "good" cards, but that they are worth investigating/playtesting to see what you like and what works. They are all budget-friendly, so none of them will break the bank to test out.

-Dangerous Wager: okay not the best card, and Browbeat does more for the cause, but the difference between 2 and 3 mana could be a lot. youre only running 19 lands and trying to kill fast, so i'm thinking you'll be stuck on 2 lands more often than desirable. (i know this from experience, unfortunately).

-Chandra's Phoenix: decent haste flyer that keeps coming back. allows you to get a little more value if you stall out on turn 4 or 5. again, might be tough to rock this 3-drop with 19 lands, but hey. might be worth it.

Shrine of Burning Rage: This thing adds up really quick. it's better than it seems, if youve never actually played with it. can be slightly slower, but every spell you play, every turn you take, its a clock for you.

Abbot of Keral Keep: again, slightly slower, but he's got prowess, card advantage, and can progress your game if you're stalling out.

-Depending on the decks you're playing against at your LGS/playgroup, i would suggest Anger of the Gods (abzan company/living end/other GY decks) or Pyroclasm (tokens/aggro) over Bonfire of the Damned. Bonfire is amazing, but you're not gonna have enough mana or reliably miracle it to make it worthwhile. the other 2 options should fill in where you need them to.

-Leyline of Punishment is a good SB card against decks that run those pesky Auriok Champion, Burrenton Forge-Tender, or Kor Firewalker. Also a bonus against random good stuff like Kitchen Finks and the entire Soul Sisters deck. Really gotta luck out and have it in your opening hand and/or mulligan down to it, within reason, against some of the more heavy lifegain decks. i know you have Flames of the Blood Hand and Skullcrack in the main to help against that, but sometimes you need a static effect to shut that shit down.

-i wish Relic of Progenitus wasnt like $4 rn for whatever reason. its been printed like 5 times! that would be the ideal GY hate for you, i think. it triggers prowess, replaces itself, and is 1 mana. if you can panhandle for 10 bucks, you could probably pick up 3 SP copies of it somewhere on TCG.

-some utility burn dudes are Ash Zealot, Harsh Mentor, Young Pyromancer, Soul-Scar Mage, Thermo-Alchemist, Bedlam Reveler, Guttersnipe, and one i really like Grim Lavamancer. They all do some neat stuff and they all are <$1, except lavamancer, who you can find for about $2.50 in some places. none of them are game breaking (usually) but they could all be looked at, individually, and sorted out from there.

-Molten Vortex is cool because it turns your lands into Shocks.

anyway, thats what i got. +1 for having Browbeat and Flames of the Blood Hand in your deck. love those cards. Exquisite Firecraft is pretty spicy, too.

Is Chandra's Phoenix a proxy for something else in Standard? Since Chandra's Phoenix isn't Standard-legal.

RIP Commander players everywhere...long may Azor reign! In all seriousness though, he seems pretty powerful in multiple formats. I feel like Approach decks just got a really strong addition.

Pretty cool that they re-made the "Harbinger" cycle as the "Forerunner"s and that Forerunner of the Empire seems pretty solid with enrage.

Love, love, love, the cloning Raptor.

Also, merfolk has a replacement for Metallic Mimic once it rotates (or even now) making standard Fish look pretty strong:

We also got probably the best phoenix since Chandra's Phoenix,

I gotta say, my favorite card spoiled so far today has to be this little beauty though:

Chandra's Phoenix is useless in this deck when you have no red instant or sorcery spells. Also Terminate is OP
