False Flag Operation

Commander / EDH* Mono-Red


Convince everyone else to join the Sith. The more you attack, the angrier they get.

Get Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor out as soon as you have a means (hexproof, indestructible) to protect her, then attack to start getting survivors on the board. Varchild's War-Raiders will do this through cumulative upkeep instead of attacking, so you run less of a risk of making yourself a target.

Cards like Curse of Opulence, Coveted Jewel, and Assault Suit encourage your opponents to attack, but since survivors or the dude in the suit can't attack you they'll have to go elsewhere. For extra fun, nearly every card that able to induce a goading effect for mono-red is in the deck, causing those creatures to act similarly to the incoming survivors.

The deck has stax pieces peppered in, Blood Moon for example seems like an auto-include in Mono-red, but most of the enchantments revolve around either punishing the opponent for refusing to attack with certain creatures (e.g Total War), or for even accepting the creatures in the first place (e.g. Rampaging Ferocidon). Damage-based wipes trigger cards like Repercussion, Dingus Staff, and Burning Sands, while cards like Defense Grid, Total War and Price of Glory help safeguard you against interaction on your turn.

When trying to sow discord, keep in mind that the opponent creates the survivors. If a player with survivors dies, so too do the survivors. With that in mind, your ideal situation is to keep your opponents just barely alive until you can kill all three at the same time.

If all else fails, you've got some equipment. You can also remove [Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor] from the field to snag all the survivors. Get in there and smash some faces.
