This deck is truly designed for multiplayer games only. It can't really work as intended in 1v1 at all. It functions kind of like a control deck, except it actually isn't really in control of anything for the most part. You mostly get to trick opponents into thinking you are in control with fear...of the unknown. Its designed to "stir the pot" and accelerate the craziness of multiplayer games by encouraging attacks between other players with the Monarch mechanic (like on Queen Marchesa ). Then it plays lots of cards that have an effect like Fog but much better. Think cards like Comeuppance or Selfless Squire . Opponents will be afraid to attack into your open mana no matter how juicy it seems to attack.

Its such a blast to play edh with so much bluffing, blowouts and politics.

This is my 21st paper EDH deck that I currently have assembled, and also being my 3rd 5 color deck, the mana base is about as budget as it gets. The sideboard are just notes for me of which cards are being borrowed from other decks of mine.

Any budget friendly suggestions are much appreciated! Especially when suggestions are accompanied by reasons and ideas of what to swap out! Thanks.

Next upgrade ideas in the maybeboard.
