Magic Origins: Chandra’s Ignition and more

magic origins banner

There was a new trailer for the new Duels game at E3, and it showed off two brand new cards, and they are both quite exciting.

chandra's ignitionDisplaying the moment when Chandra’s spark ignites, this card is at best a mono-red Duneblast, and at worst it does absolutely nothing. High ceiling, low floor that is. This may well be a limited bomb designed to be the breaker of all stale-mates, or at least a reset of the board, and it might also be decent in EDH. Time will tell.

The other spoiler is a much blurrier picture:


Ravaging Blaze XRR
Ravaging Blaze deals X damage to target creature.
Spell mastery – If there are two or more instant and/or sorcery cards in your graveyard, Ravaging Blaze also deals X damage to that creature’s controller.

This might just be playable in Standard and it’s obviously a pretty good in Limited. Spell mastery makes me hopeful for the future, it’s pretty damn easy to get online as long as it’s always two instants and/or sorceries, and added effects on cards are always nice.

    I’ve been thinking about Chandra’s Ignition ever since I first saw it (that was yesterday so admittedly I haven’t thought about it that much). At first I figured it would be a nice addition to my EDH-deck, but looking a bit closer at the card it just requires too many things to fall into place for it to be an effective card. And even if you’re sitting with a single big creature and all your opponents are up here with smaller guys, it only takes a single “destroy target creature” in response for it to be rendered useless.

    I very much like the flavour of the card though, and hope I’ll be able to play it when drafting the set.

    Oh, and I agree with you that Spell Mastery seems like a very nice mechanic.
