General description:
Chandra is one of my favorite Planeswalkers to use because of her highest cost ability. In a red mono deck or a red multicolored deck Chandra is a force to be reckoned with as long as you can pull her out and keep her safe to build up her loyalty to use.

Uses:
Build her loyalty to at least 9 then use her high cost ability and in late game situations it causes a win and in early game situations it opens your opponent for direct attacks.

Strategies and game play:
Use low cost creatures to keep her safe while you build her loyalty to at least 9 so you can keep her if you have her out early in the match or are fighting more than one opponent.

Combos with other cards:
There is no real combo with this other than low cost creatures that can keep her safe.

Ways to counteract it:
Attack Chandra fast or focus damaging spells against her.

Strengths/Pros:
Her high cost ability targets 1 player and all that player's creatures for 10 damage.

Weaknesses/Cons:
Her high cost ability cost 8 loyalty and she can only build 1 loyalty a turn.
She will be a target your opponent focuses on.

Variations:
The Core 2011 set has this card in non-foil and foil and I think it is also in Spanish.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork is kind of captivating and shows off Chandra's fiery rage as well as her deadly beauty.

Overall rating:
I would rate this card about a 6 out of 10 because unless your opponent has never faced a Planeswalker before or just can't out summon your deck this is a rather difficult card to use.
