Chandra Naalar, Inferno Adept 2RRR

Legendary Planeswalker - Chandra

+1: Each opponent gets an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep, this emblem deals 1 damage to you."

-2: Discard up to three cards. You draw that many cards and deal that much damage to each creature you don't control.

-7: Until end of turn, creatures you control gain "Whenever this creature dies, it deals 2 damage to target opponent". ~ deals 10 damage to each creature.

Starting at 4 Loyalty


The fact that her card name has a full name is a nod to Jaya Ballard, the same is true for the second ability. The first ability shows that Chandra got a little less impulsive after a long life. The ultimate shows her impulsive recklesness, but also how her allies are willingly making that necessary sacrifice by even increasing the damage.

I'd like to see a Chandra, but old card.

Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is her young, while Jaya Ballard and Jaya, Venerated Firemage.

I believe Teferi's progression was Disruptive Student, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Teferi, Time Raveler.

I'm pretty sure Chandra's Progression is Chandra, Novice Pyromancer, Chandra, Acolyte of Flame, Chandra, Roaring Flame, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Fire Artisan, Chandra, Heart of Fire.

Not 100% on the time lines of everyone, but pretty sure.

Also, looking further over the deck, I would strongly recommend replacing Chandra Ablaze with Jaya Ballard. An overall lower cmc and more synergy with your deck as a whole outweighs the additional red mana needed to cast her, in my opinion.

  1. Arcanis the Omnipotent
  2. Bosh, Iron Golem
  3. Dakkon Blackblade
  4. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails
  5. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
  6. Higure, the Still Wind
  7. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
  8. Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
  9. Karona, False God
  10. Kresh the Bloodbraided
  11. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
  12. Malfegor
  13. Maralen of the Mornsong
  14. Mayael the Anima
  15. Momir Vig, Simic Visionary
  16. Morinfen
  17. Phage the Untouchable

  19. Reaper King
  20. Rith, the Awakener
  21. Sakashima the Impostor
  22. Seshiro the Anointed
  23. Sisters of Stone Death

So now figure out which ones are most likely to fit into Tefiri's Past/Lore. Still say Sidar is most likely, But Jaya as another creature card could be possible I suppose.

Hey again Kain, I saw your message regarding this deck on your Arjun deck page. These are the cuts I would make:

  • Banefire . Since it only hits a single target, even copying this won’t put you anywhere near eliminating even 1 opponent unless you have a ton of mana. Mizzix of the Izmagnus could make things like Banefire a little more impactful. Otherwise it is just an overpriced removal spell.

  • Comet Storm . Like Banefire, this requires too much mana to be good.

  • Fanning the Flames . Same as above.

  • God-Eternal Kefnet . The problem with this guy is that he is much more situational than he seems. Only 1/3 of the deck is instants/sorceries, so he will whiff most of the time. Even when he does trigger, you might not want to play the copy (due to mana limitations, bad timing, you’d rather play something else from your hand, etc.) It’s just not worth a card slot for something so low-impact.

  • Elsha of the Infinite . Good if built around as a commander, in any other deck Elsha is just glorified card draw. She’s situational similar to Kefnet. For 5 mana you could play Rush of Knowledge which is copiable, easier to cast, and will give you access to more cards than Elsha would.

  • Jaya Ballard . Triple red in the mana cost can be tricky to pull off in 3 colors. And for what? A worse Gilded Lotus that will likely get killed before you can use it a second time? Jaya requires too much building-around to shine.

  • Counterspell . Keeping two blue mana open when you’re in 3 colors can be rough. You might end up slowing yourself down. Swan Song might be a better choice.

  • Winds of Abandon . You don’t need this when you already have mass burn spells to wipe out creatures. Besides, if an opponent is running a token deck you’d actually be helping them out with this.

  • Swords to Plowshares . You have plenty of ways to burn creatures. Why waste a card slot on single-target creature removal?

  • Echo of Eons . Helps opponents.

  • Scour All Possibilities . Requires tons of mana just to draw a few cards.

  • Karma . Great if you’re consistently finding Urborg. Otherwise this card spooks a couple opponents at best and does nothing at worst.

  • Enlightened Tutor . While this is a strong card, copying it does nothing for you. These kinds of tutors also put you at negative card advantage. I think there are better/more thematically fitting things you could use instead.

  • Time Wipe . You have plenty of mass burn. You don’t need this.
