Chandra Nalaar

One of the most powerful planeswalkers. Not only can her first ability win you the game alone if unmolested (something no other planeswalker can claim), but one use puts her within a turn of using her Ultimate. She can also take out enemy creatures, allowing you to play her as a sort of Barbed Lightning for 3RR, but with more options.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4.5
Limited- 4.5

Chandra Nalaar

It's too bad Chandra's abilities all do the same thing. On the other hand, maybe it's a good thing that we'll never have to face nearly-unstoppable pseudo-spells mimicking Cryoclasm, Pillage, Ruination, or Wheel of Fortune that can only be stopped by using up direct damage or attacking her through her ally's Pyroclasms, Molten Disasters, and Skreds. Even as printed, Chandra Nalaar is the kind of girl you want on your side in a firefight (pun definitely intended).

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 5/5

Tuesday's card is Chandra Nalaar. The red Planeswalker is perhaps the least used of the Planeswalkers from Lorywn, perhaps due to the popularity of tribes that aren't red at the moment. Chandra is a slow burning card, and burn decks tend to be fast. However, she's not bad considering her X ability can clear the board of creatures in a hurry. If you have a red deck, by all means try her out but other than that, use another Planeswalker instead.

Limited:3/5
Constructed:3/5
