An amazing Planeswalker for a red burn deck. Use the first ability to discard your instants and sorcery that burn. This will put a bunch of your burn cards in the graveyard, while doing damage minus the cost. Then when you run out, use the second ability to draw three more. When you feel that you have a good amount of cards in the graveyard, use the third ability to burn your opponents again! This card has a great system built in!

People who dont like this card simply aren't using her in the right deck. Chandra Ablaze is incredible in decks featuring the "madness" and "hellbent" keywords as she allows you to shoot cards at your opponents before playing them, and then boosts your creatures and spells when you no longer have a hand.

Effective if in the right burn deck, X cards don't do to well with her, such as earthquake etc. where as shock and lightning bolt become stronger as you play them for free on your turn and do 4 damage, build to her ultimate and hit them with what you've discarded, simple red burn appropriate planeswalker...(Note, funny with staggershock as when her ultimate goes off you can rebound them...:))

Fantastic in all-in-red. Has the ability to be dropped turn 1 instead of demigod or deus, and opponents are usually not happy when you knock them down to 3 cards turn 1. just burn them out for a couple turns then ultimate up everything discarded.

She works well in a Burn/Discard deck pair with Megrim for instance the -2 ability would cause 6 damage and then use Blightning it does 3 damage to player and makes player discard 2 cards causing 7 more damage it has red in its cost so it could be used with her -7 ability along with Burning Inquiry, Lightning Bolt and Terminate. If you want to further damage by discarding use Bloodchief Ascension with Megrim thats 4 damage per card discarded with the 2 enchantments out and 2 life you gain for every card discarded also using Howling Mines to draw these cards fast and keep cards in your opponents hand to keep them discarding. Now for creatures if you must have them 4 of each of these Hypnotic Specter or Guul Draz Specter, Hellfire Mongrel and Nyxathid. It makes for one hell of a Burn/Discard tech deck I can have a turn 4 kill condition in most games I play and have her as a good late game play if necessary

Awesome in red burn decks, especially if you're running a couple of rituals (Seething Song, Rite of Flame, Desperate Ritual) to counter the large manacost. Many may think that Chandra's first ability sucks, but it's quite the opposite. Many burn spells don't deal more than 4 damage, and by using Chandra, you're practically casting potentially boosted burn spells for free. Even better, use her ability to discard cards such as Violent Eruption to abuse the discarding. Her second ability is always nice if you're running low on burn, and her last ability usually seals the deal, recasting all of your burn spells that you've cast throughout the game (which usually, is quite a few - at least if you're running a burn deck)...All in all, a very powerful card for burn decks that can utilize her abilities correctly. Costly? Perhaps, but there are plenty of ways to gain a lot of mana quickly in red decks...

This Chandra is too big cost for red deck agro. But in the control deck, let's see... Squee, Goblin Nabob can be useful combo with her. You can add up her loyality without discarding any shooter spells!!!!

How about pairing this with Pyromancer Ascension? Think about it.

Her first ability is not as bad as it sounds. Its allowing you to trade any card in your hand for costless 4 damages. Which is better than shock OR lightning bolt, the instants, which in my opinion are a major part of defining red strategy.However, its not an instant. If it was, this card would compete with powerful walkers like Sorin Markov. As it stand now, she isnt better than Chandra Nalaar, the only other mono-red choice.However, another red walker was needed, and here it is.

to the guy before me: using red mana instants or sorceries gets her out faster and and therefore ability to use her last ability faster which will allow to use ur mana spells again for no cost and let u play whatever you want.

This card is amazing if your running an all red deck in 3 turns you cast all red cards in your graveyard for no mana.

All I can say is a astounding MEH because the old Chandra is better for tournament play. Secondly I would like to say she is fun in casual formats such as EDH. She's especially fun in a Izzet deck.

the card has a lot more pop than the original chandra, but to me i think it pales in comparison to pyromancer ascension. i would much rather get pyromancer ascension in a booster than i would this card. to me, i think this card is kind of useless considering how long it would take you to burn through all of your good red cards, which kind of makes the card lose its whole red-mana-play-cards-really-fast effect. i think they did a not-so-good job on re-doing chandra nalaar. she was a lot better than the card i see here.

This is quite possibly the worst Planeswalker printed. First ability: If you're playing red, then discarding cards is the last thing you want to do, let alone red burn spells. If you discard a Bolt, fair enough, it's one extra damage, but you have to pay 6 mana for it. Second ability: This is the best ability on the card. Red would want to draw three a lot, because usually it uses all of its cards early game and then burns out. However, it's still turn 6, by which time you want to have won. Third ability: This is good, but the earliest you can get it is turn 9, and you have to ditch cards in order to make it work, and protect her with your attackers.The only reason this is worth this much is because of all the Timmies assuming that anything that's a Planeswalker is automatically good. One star.
