The new Chandra

Today we had our first games with the new MTG set Oath of the Gate watch. For me one of the highlight cards was the new Chandra.

Chandra, Flamecaller
+1: Put two 3/1 red Elemental creature tokens with haste onto the battlefield. Exile them at the beginning of the next end step.
0: Discard all the cards in your hand, then draw that many cards plus one.
-X: Chandra, Flamecaller deals X damage to each creature.
Loyalty: 4
The card is a little different to other versions but is the 4 loyalty counters to low?

(+1) This is clearly a very aggro-ability. two 3/1, temporary haste attackers + loyality each turn is quite much. Unfortunatelly These Tokens can not be utilized to block. So dont consider this a defensive ability. 

(0) That one is an awesome way to constantly get fresh supply. Dont Need lands & manadorks ? Here, take 3 more Cards. i hope you get something to defend me & or finish !

(-X) What i love about this ability the most is, that instead of an Ultimate, its further Utility. & very Needed one at that ! 6 Mana sometimes is too late, but this one can save the day. 

Shes quite a utility-package. She can go aggro. She can refuel your Hand & she can mass-kill the board. My only concern with her, is that shes kinda weak against bigger craetures. But in that case, you can adapt your Deck with appropriate spells to mitigate her weakness. What i personally love the most about her, is that she truly has 3 abilities.

All in all a great Planeswalker, but that's just my opinion. What is yours?
