I’ve literally been chomping at the bit to deliver some new spoilers from Magic at PAX on Twtich. So, here they are!
This card seems like a good win con for Mizzix. It chugs out Constructs, and then you can get all the instants and sorceries back after you’ve gotten a bunch of constructs out. It’s pretty good for that deck, but not really outside that.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance is just amazing. I’m blown away. It’s only four mana. It’s great. The first ability lets you burn the top card of your deck. If you can’t or don’t want or play it, you get to deal two damage to each opponent. That’s great. It helps you filter your cards. The second ability is also a plus one. It can help you go Chandra into a two drop. It’s just amazing. I just can’t. Chandra can also come down and minus three to shoot down a creature to defend herself. Though her ultimate is irrelevant because it’s so hard to reach, it’s still good. It turns every spell into a giant cannon. I love this card in Standard. Control loves it as a finisher. Aggro loves it as a curve topper. In Modern, a lot of the Moon decks will also like this card. Blue Moon and Skred Red will definitely play this as an additional finisher.
