• Happy The Cat

    would have prefered a bigger creature with “whenever the monarch would be dealt damage, instead deal that much damage to Guardian of the Throne” to give you more of a reason to be king of the hill but this is fine.(but not nearly as breakable with a handful of enchantments)

  • Shagoth

    What a flavorful card.

  • Jonathan Reynolds

    Let me just equip this Darksteel Plate…

  • Kaiser

    The mountain eue

  • Blahblahblahbla

    Mmmmmm… A new best card in my Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant deck!!!

    • Blahblahblahbla

      This is a truly amazing card draw engine for white in EDH considering you can easily prevent your opponent’s creatures from dealing combat damage to you with it. I am really going to enjoy this card..

      • Hedronal

        Given it’s being dealt damage to save you, just make sure you pack plenty of ways to keep it alive, such as Shielded by Faith.

        • Blahblahblahbla

          Sorry, i was referring to being in a Run-Tail Kitsune Ascendant deck. That would mean it’s protected as soon as it hits the field.

          • Hedronal

            In that case, so much yes.

  • TogetherAlone

    New probably much worse palisade giant?

    • Mr.Mayhem631

      This effectively cantrips and makes you the monarch at the cost of -0/-2 and not redirecting damage to permanents.
      I’d say that PG is a little better, but we’ll see how Monarchy is.
