    what is this? there are no keys on this! what kind of Zelda reference is this supposed to be?

    • Hedronal

      I must not be enough of a Zelda fan, what part is that referencing?

      • Happy The Cat

        bats are called keys in LoZ. there wasn’t much besides that joke I could say about this card.

        • Ugh

          Keese*

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I do enjoy the fact the keeper is a mutant.

    • Ryū

      Pfft What, would you let a normal person hold on to your keys?

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        I trusted Grenzo. I still trust Grenzo.
        Grenzo/Daretti 2016.
        Mayhem you can believe in.

        • Ryū

          A fire in every home and an explosive in every mailbox.

          • Hedronal

            And if it’s only one of either of those, or either is only in that location, it’s a slow day.

  • Bruce Flanagan

    Find some way to flash him in at the end of your opponent’s turn and then alpha people.

  • Konan

    I wonder if there will be at least one instant that can make you the monarch.

  • Ryū

    I’m always a fan of unblockable stuff.

  • EddieDeanofIgnorance

    If he’s unlocking my path to the throne, why do I have to be on the throne to attack the monarch unblocked?

    • Hedronal

      I think it’s more like it counts you as the monarch before you’ve actually taken the throne itself.

  • Vizzerdrix

    ok so wasnt too sure building marchesa was viable, yes i know this is blue, but the upside of being the monarch is rediculous and if no one else in your edh playgroup plays monarch cards you can totally blow them out with things like this

    • Hedronal

      They can also become the Monarch by hitting you with a creature, so plan your blowouts carefully.

  • Zombie

    In EDH: “At the beginning of your upkeep, if you’re the Monarch, you win the game”.

    Pretty much.

    GG, No RE – Keeper of Keys

  • Blahblahblahbla

    The difference between the second line being at beginning of upkeep or being a static ability really affects whether or not this is an auto-include in Maelstrom Wanderer. Definitely an auto-include in Derevi and Medomai though!

  • Baxter Stein

    Oh baby. EDH rogue tribal is getting some new tools

    • Hedronal

      Even a red rogue commander.
