The evolution of Chandra Naalar

The quintessantial red mage debuted in Lorwyn to little fanfare with 5 mana being too steep for most red decks to commit to, and her slooooow 6-drop Zendikar version made it into exactly 0 decks in a blisteringly fast format full of Lotus Cobras, Bloodbraid Elves, Baneslayers, and later Titans, Stoneforge Mystics, and Jace. Still, her very castable, very splashable most recent printing as Chandra, the Firebrand unveiled last year to much excitement and expectation. The meta wasn’t quite right for her to perform at her best, despite high hopes. But the shift will come this fall, and the Firebrand will be around to see it after a reprint in M13. Manadorks with 1 toughness beware!
