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.

Legendary Planeswalker - Gideon
When Gideon, Resurrected is put into a graveyard from anywhere, its owner shuffles it into their library.
+2:Until end of turn, Gideon Jura becomes a 6/6 Human Soldier creature that's still a planeswalker. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to him this turn.
-1: Until your next turn, during each combat you may destroy up to one attacking creature.
-5: Return target white creature in your graveyard to the battlefield tapped.
I'd like to see a Chandra, but old card.
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.

Note: re:Above list. Serra has no creature legendary so it may exclude her.
- Arcanis the Omnipotent
- Bosh, Iron Golem
- Dakkon Blackblade
- Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
- Higure, the Still Wind
- Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
- Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
- Karona, False God
- Kresh the Bloodbraided
- Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
- Maralen of the Mornsong
- Mayael the Anima
- Momir Vig, Simic Visionary
- Phage the Untouchable
- Raksha Golden Cub
- Reaper King
- Rith, the Awakener
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Seshiro the Anointed
- 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:
. 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.
. Like Banefire, this requires too much mana to be good.
Fanning the Flames
. Same as above.
. 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.
. Triple red in the mana cost can be tricky to pull off in 3 colors. And for what? A worse
that will likely get killed before you can use it a second time? Jaya requires too much building-around to shine.
. Keeping two blue mana open when you’re in 3 colors can be rough. You might end up slowing yourself down.
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.
. Great if you’re consistently finding Urborg. Otherwise this card spooks a couple opponents at best and does nothing at worst.
. 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.
. You have plenty of mass burn. You don’t need this.
