BlaineTog on Dagger Burn

I like the idea, but I see three main problems.

  1. You don't have enough evasive creatures to help you flip Dowsing Dagger  Flip easily.

  2. You don't have any place to put the mana from Lost Vale  Flip.

  3. 22 lands is going to lead to stumbles in the early game.

The obvious solution to the first issue is to go up to the full 4 copies of Kitesail Freebooter. I'd also recommend running Siren Stormtamer. It's cheap, evasive, and the ability can be useful to protect your Ferocidons and Freebooters.

For the second issue, I'd recommend running at least 3 copies of Cut / Ribbons. The deck could stand to have a bit more removal anyway and ripping a big Ribbons later one could be a great way to close games out. It would drastically reduce your fizzle rate, too, since it's a lot harder to race a couple of bigger Lava Axes from the graveyard than pings.

For the third, 24 lands should ensure that you can get to your Panharmonicons at a decent rate. You could go with a light Desert package (a few copies of Ifnir Deadlands and Ramunap Ruins) to help ensure you don't flood out.

I'm not sure what to cut, though; that's the rub.

Turtleshell Changeling (replace with 1 Calcite Snapper and 1 Horned Turtle) and Tortoise Formation (replace with 2 Spell Pierce) plus Meandering Towershell (replace with 2 Thriving Turtle) and for better blocking Freed from the Real (replace with 1 Essence Scatter) annnnnnnnd to keep your Azor's Elocutors on the battlefield Darksteel Plate (replace with 2 Island) Also my strat for this deck is: block get out your Azor's Elocutors put the Darksteel Plate on them then block with your turtles so you dont take damage (If you something like a Lava Axe use a counter spell) untell you can automatically win the game. FLAWLESS!!!

Some great Spells-Matter cards are Kiln Fiend, Monastery Swiftspear, Young Pyromancer, Bedlam Reveler and Delver of Secrets  Flip. I would suggest cutting down to 10 overall copies of creatures, and you should at least have Monastery Swiftspear.

I would also cut Lava Axe (not sure if you meant Lightning Axe or something, if so it's probably fine)

If you want a t2 win condition, add Simian Spirit Guides and Assault Strobe and Kiln Fiends

replace Lava Axe with Mana Clash, and I think you're good.

Argy on I own every Chandra

4 months ago

I have a few other cards that I carry with my Chandras:

  • Eager Construct - best Magic card ever made, Scrying beats Flying
  • Enlarge - the first piece of art I fell in love with
  • Black Cat - the second piece of art I liked
  • Runeclaw Bear - the first bear card I ever owned
  • Totally Lost - I found this among some junk singles and fell in love with Fblthp
  • Switcheroo - I love the entire flavour of this card
  • A Buffy Jenny Callendar card, coz she was cool
  • A custom Diabolic Tutor card I made with me dressed as Chandra and the LGS owner whispering in my ear (he has long, black hair)
  • Storm Crow - you kind of have to

I also have Rock, Paper, Scissors but mine are foil copies of Meteorite, Jayemdae Tome, and Ensoul Artifact

I think I should go back to my project of collecting every copy of Lava Axe that has ever been printed.

I need to complete my Minotaur collection, too. I have all the Creatures, but I need stuff like Didgeridoo.

Argy on Which Chandra is the best?

4 months ago

DarkLaw I activated Chandra Pyromancer's (which is what they SHOULD have called her) ultimate one night at FNM, not long after I had playing.

I didn't hit anything worthwhile, even though I had Lava Axe in the deck, and I've never used her competitively since.

I do have her in a Casual deck that I muck around with at home. She's a lot of fun if you find the right shell for her.

Argy on Which Chandra is the best?

I played with it during the time of Journey into Nyx, in a Non-Creature spell heavy deck.

If it hit Lava Axe that was pretty much game over.

Problem was that sometimes all you got to choose from were a mix of Creatures, Lands, and pissy little spells like Shock.

I'm not actually saying it's a bad card, or even the worst Chandra. As I said above, it just needs the right deck to shine in, as opposed to Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip who gives more reliable damage in a Burn deck. She doesn't really care if you are playing Creature or Non-Creature spells.
