+1: Discard your hand, then exile the top three cards of your library. Until end of turn, you may play cards exiled this way.

By the time most red decks reach five mana, their hand size has diminished already, meaning this +1 is effectively drawing three cards per turn. Additionally, some decks can make use of the discard clause and use it for their advantage.

+1: Chandra, Heart of Fire deals 2 damage to any target.

A free Shock every turn isn’t exactly mind blowing, especially for five mana, but planeswalkers that can defend themselves, especially while gaining loyalty tend to be strong.

-9: Search your graveyard and library for any number of red instant and/or sorcery cards, exile them, then shuffle your library. You may cast them this turn. Add six R.

In the right deck, this could easily just end the game. Getting to nine loyalty and having to meet the right deckbuilding requirements is a stretch, but it could definitely lead to some great Magic Arena clips.

Also previewed alongside Chandra, take a look at her three Elemental companions!

As cute as these three fiery bois are, we cannot recommend petting them.
