Jared Carthalion Gets It Together!

Finally, the last Carthalion heir is here and ready to take back what is his. I hope you are ready for a fight, because ruling doesn't come easy! This deck is all about bringing the Monarch mechanic into the game and then taking our rightful place as ruler. Our battle plan is a combination of taking advantage of Jared Carthalion, True Heir's ability while we are the monarch, redirecting our opponent's damage back to them, and threatening to combo off through it all. We aren't all brawn and no brain through! This deck has incredible political power through being able to give our opponents the monarch (temporarily of course) and incentivizing them to attack our other opponents. Maneuver through the ever shifting battlefield and navigate the politics of multiplayer to bring home the crown and take the win!

Jared Carthalion, True Heir's ability makes him invulnerable to damage and turns that damage into making him even more powerful while we are the monarch. We can take advantage of this through damage based removal such as Blasphemous Act or Aurelia's Fury which instead of killing him through damage, gives him that many +1/+1 counters - pumping him to incredible levels! We also have numerous creature that redirect damage such as Brash Taunter, Boros Reckoner, and Stuffy Doll. These make your opponents think twice before they attack us and let us take and hold onto the Monarch once we get it. It doesn't take long for the card advantage the Monarch gives to let us outpace and overwhelm our opponents.
  • Damage: Jared has the potential to knock an opponent out through commander damage in one swing when he is pumped through his ability or with a Blackblade Reforged attached. Cathars' Crusade help to pump all of our creatures to make any one of them able to stand on their own and pose an impressive threat to our opponents.
  • Redirection: Holding onto the Monarch is extremely important in this deck, so we use damage redirection through Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter, and Stuffy Doll and a healthy dose of goad like effects through Agitator Ant and Orzhov Advokist to turn our opponents away from us and against each other. A touch of stax effects through Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker and Baird, Steward of Argive give just one more reason for our opponents to stay away from us and our crown. All these synergize to make the thought of attacking us daunting and undesirable to our opponents.
  • Protection: Since combat damage is a large part of our battle plan, removal and board wipes are extremely dangerous to us. To combat those, we have numerous effects to protect our permanents through cards like Whispersilk Cloak, Teferi's Protection, Gift of Immortality, etc. These can turn what would be a devastating board wipe into the perfect opportunity for us to swing in and steal the game. Also, fun fact: white actually have some counter spells! As such, we are running Rebuff the Wicked as surprise answers to targeted removal. Your opponents won't see it coming! One last element in this category is recursion; we have Sun Titan, Eternal Witness, and Bruna, the Fading Light to bring things back from the graveyard. And since we are running Bruna, of course we must also include Gisela, the Broken Blade for the chance to make the ultimate play of melding them into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. If you are able to do so, you have automatically won! (regardless of game outcome)
