Chandra, Acolyte of Flame Discussion

Chandra's Incinerator is basically a one-sided board wipe
Young Pyromancer one of the best token generators ever printed, Mogg War Marshal isn't as good but still can be three creatures for two mana with reanimator synergy. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives temporary token but they still get the job done considering they are sac fodder.
Oketra's Monument , Monastery Mentor , Hero of Precinct One , Sedgemoor Witch , and Desecrated Tomb give back a bit of your commanders cost. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder generates 4 tokens every time you cast your commander since it counts as a creature spell with 4 cmc.

Hmm, that's a good question. In my opinion board wipes don't work too well in token decks, so Ruinous Ultimatum might not be the best fit. Anax in general is a great card, but you don't really have a lot of payoff with him, and you will probably just end up sacrificing him. For other cards, I'm not too sure. plumb the forbidden, orzhov enforcer, storm-kin artisan, and doomed traveler could all go. Also on the planeswalker front, I think the only planeswalker you really need would be a Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . Tevish, Lilliana and Elspeth all come out really late when you already will have some sort of engine or combo already in play.

It's a solid start, but there are a couple of changes I would make, first, drop damnation, it's about 35% of your budget and only so, so in this deck. Next I would have a look at your removal packages (over the last year standard has done wanders for budget options)
I would seriously consider Bonecrusher Giant as a solid body and nice removal. It's a really nice hit by bloodbraid due to its duel nature
And Vraska, Golgari Queen it's a card draw engin late game and normally 2 abrupt decays. Which is always welcome.
I would also consider 2 copy's of Chevill, Bane of Monsters as he's solid card advantage and your offen going to be killing stuff.
As your not running dark confident or goyf your probably should be running 2 Tasigur, the Golden Fang as it's a solid mid game beater and late game card advantage engin.
Stone rain is ok but far from ideal in this deck, offen it's a do nothing card.
Also if your running blighting I'm a big fan of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as she's basically a 2 snap casters mages. (She dose need some help for teh double red mana but it's with the range of workability)
On the subject of plainswalkers apart fro vraska (which is your best budget option) your other solid options are Domri, Anarch of Bolas , ramps, protects against control lists, it pumps and it removes stuff. He's probably the best option. After that there's also Liliana, Waker of the Dead (as close to lilly of veil as where going to get) and Nissa of Shadowed Boughs who is deceptively good over a long Grindy match, bringing back your best creature with counters, and being triggered twice a turn but evolving wilds.
Hope some of this helps.

Interesting idea, but there are a couple things that strike me as odd. First you mention inferno titan in your deck description, but its not in the list. Accident? I'm thinking you forgot to add it since your deck is only 58 total cards. Also in () you say lotus field is cut from the deck, but is still in the list. More revisions coming?
As far as the deck goes, I am going to suggest dropping the akki's. You lose a card casting path on them (path and akki for 1 land) and you don't even get the dying trigger. Even sacrificing it to crack the earth leaves you down 3 cards to their 2 (crack/akki/your land vs their crack choice and land).
What I would probably do in their place is add a couple more lands so you'll have a reasonable chance to cast your iona.
The other suggestion I have is switching the #s on pillage and stone rain to make it easier on your mana.
What I would do overall is probably something like this: Cuts: 4 akki/ 1 iona //1 cleansing wildfire Add: 2 land/ 3 lightning bolt/ 3 Chandra, Acolyte of Flame
Side idea for the lotus/brought back synergy: I got to thinking about this synergy and it's potential might be better unlocked in a deck with wrath effects and creatures that sacrifice to give protection ex: Selfless Savior .

Chandra, the Firebrand loving the eyeliner.
Chandra, Acolyte of Flame charmed by the smile.
Zooming in on the art in a new tab I only just realized that the flame around her has teeth!

Max121212 For Chandra you have some good options too. Chandra, Awakened Inferno is the literal definition of hot woman. However for what you're looking for I'd suggest stuff like Chandra, Acolyte of Flame , Chandra, Bold Pyromancer , Chandra, Flame's Catalyst , Chandra, Novice Pyromancer , Chandra, Pyrogenius , or even Chandra, the Firebrand

I still think Chandra, Acolyte of Flame would be great in the deck. Slagstorm can do 6 damage to each creature and Wheel of Fortune can draw seven cards twice a game for example. It is a cheaper flashback.

TheSlowestBro I didn't even realize you could delete comments, I just figured it was another tappedout glitch. Regarding cuts, I agree with all except the following...
Honor Worn Shaku should be kept and you should remove Treasure Map Flip. You mention it as a repeatable engine, but its slow and doesn't provide much value. Also, Honor works with your planewalksers and purphorous, which is nice tech.
Magus is a good potential cut, but it should be kept IMO and you should remove Pia and Kiran Nalaar . Costs a lot to play and activate, tokens are nice but often unimpactful without impact tremors effects.
Potential cuts for Sensei's Top and Moggcatcher are as follows in order of should cut first to should cut last....
Goblin Recruiter - Ensures no land drops, often based on board states which constantly change. While having a creature tutor in mono red is nice, do you really find yourself in the situation that you would cast this, wait a turn and find a goblin.
Chandra, Acolyte of Flame - First 0 effectively does nothing without other chandras. Second 0 is like Pia and Kiran Nalaar, making tokens without much abuse for them. -2 is actually not bad, just not amazing IMO.
Squee, Goblin Nabob - Nice with wheels and self-discard looting effects. Fun with skullclamp. Otherwise, unimpactful. Had him in my build originally, took him out
