Chandra's Phoenix Discussion

Anger of the Gods seems risky... you wouldn't want to be forced to set it off and accidentally send your own Chandra's Phoenix to The Shadow Realm. Maybe Flamebreak or Slagstorm would better serve your purposes? They both have the potential to damage your opponent, too.

715.3b While on the stack as an Adventure, the spell has only its alternative characteristics.
While on the stack, an Adventure spell counts as, and only counts as, whatever types are printed on the Adventure section of the card. As Stomp is a Red Instant that you control, it will trigger Chandra's Phoenix if it deals damage to an opponent. Generally, it does have to target an opponent in order to damage an opponent though, so you will have to target an opponent, as opposed to other potential targets, in order to make this interaction work.

Freakin' love Chandra.
That seems like a few too many planeswalkers. Seems like you could cut some of the weaker ones in order to make your deck more functional, without compromising on flavour. My initial thoughts would be cutting Chandra Nalaar, Chandra, Bold Pyromancer, Chandra, Flame's Catalyst and Chandra, Pyrogenius.
I have a Chandra Tiny Leaders deck with Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh as my general. One of my favourite synergies is with Chandra's Regulator and Chandra's Phoenix, which becomes a real draw engine with any damage output from your planeswalkers.
Chandra's Spitfire is also one of my favourite ways to churn out huge amounts of damage very quickly. It can easily deal 7+ damage a turn. In the same vein, Chandra's Pyreling can be equally devastating, though lacks evasion.
Chandra's Embercat seems pretty good as an elemental that is also a 2-drop and that ramps you into bigger Chandras.
In terms of removal, I would really recommend Pyroclasm as a board wipe. Chandra's Triumph also seems better than what you're currently running. I personally like Devour in Flames, but it may not be worth the tempo loss. Fiery Impulse may as well be your Lightning Bolt. I would remove Chandra's Outburst, Liberating Combustion, Chandra's Pyrohelix or Flame Lash for any of these spells.

I think a life-oriented phoenix is the best option, Garza's Assassin is the most similar, but I think red can flavorfully spend life like that, also if a Phoenix costs life to come back, I think it makes sense that it has other life-related abilities:
Creature - Phoenix
, Pay half your life, rounded up: Return Bloodflame Phoenix from your graveyard to the battlefield. Activate this ability only during your upkeep.
I'd like to see another Phoenix, but neither a phoenix lord or a repeated method of return.

The next installment in the Signature Spellbook series has been announced, and it is Signature Spellbook: Chandra!
I imagine that many people predicted that there would eventually be an SS for Chandra, so this is not a major surprise, but what is good about this announcement is that the Signature Spellbook series shall continue, since I was worried that the Commander Collection series had replaced SS, so I am very glad to see that that is not the case.
The first two cards to be revealed are:
Which is surprising, since the first two Signature Spellbooks (Jace and Gideon) contained the original incarnations of those characters, whereas this installment contains a newer version of its character.
Judging from the inclusion of PiF, I believe that it is safe to presume that this set shall have a great emphasis on instants and sorceries. Among the cards that I am hoping to see are Chandra's Fury, Chandra's Outrage, and/or Chandra's Phoenix. A user on another forum wished to see Fireball, a classic red spell, in this set, but I would rather see either Rolling Thunder or Comet Storm, since they are both vastly superior to fireball for only one more red mana each.
This product shall be released on June 26, 2020, so I shall be certain to update this thread as further information is revealed.
What does everyone else say about this? Are you excited for this product?
