-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Set Theme

Talents

Monarch introduces talents. Monarch will feature two talents: Light and Shadow.

  • A Light Warrior hero can play with Generic cards, Light cards, Warrior cards and Light Warrior cards.
  • A Warrior hero cannot play with Light Warrior cards.

Hero’s soul

  • The hero’s soul is located under the hero card.
  • The number of cards and what cards in a hero’s soul is public information and known to both players.
  • The order of the cards in a hero’s soul is not relevant.

Play from banished zone

  • You cannot play face-down cards that are in the banished zone.
  • The card goes to the graveyard when the combat chain closes or the card resolves. (Unless otherwise specified).
  • You may still play the card normally from hand. (Unless otherwise specified).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Card Types

Instant - Aura

Instant - Aura are a newly introduced combination that exists on Light Illusionist cards. They can be played at any time you have priority (not start/end of turns) and when played they stay in the arena until they are destroyed.

Example Card:

Genesis

Pitch: 2

Cost: 4

Light Instant - Aura

At the start of your turn, you may put a card from your hand into your hero's soul. If it's an Illusionist card, create a Spectral Shield token. If it's a Light card, draw a card.

Spectra (Genesis can be attacked. When Genesis becomes the target of an attack, destroy it and close the combat chain. The attack does not resolve.)

Defense: -

  • You may play an Instant - Aura any time that you have priority. The first opportunity on your own turn is on your action phase and the first opportunity on your opponent’s turn is on their action phase after they are passed priority (Usually by playing a card or passing priority after electing not to play a card).
  • Auras stay in the arena until they are destroyed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Token - Ally

Monarch introduces the new card type Ally in the form of demons from the Demonastery. Allies can attack once per turn and can be attacked. It costs an action point to attack with an ally and they cannot be defended with {d} when being attacked.

Example Card

Blasmophet, the Soul Harvester
Shadow Token - Ally
(Allies can be attacked, can't be defended with {d}, and are destroyed when they have taken damage equal to their {h}. At end of turn, heal all damage dealt to Blasmophet.)

Once per Turn Action - 0: Attack

Whenever Blasmophet attacks, you may banish a Shadow card from your hand. If you do, the defending hero banishes a card from their soul.

Power: 6

Life: 6

  • A defending hero being attacked by an ally can be defended as normal. You can use cards to defend with {d} or defense reactions just like defending an attack action or weapon attack.
  • You cannot defend an ally you control with cards or defense reactions when they are being attacked.
  • Allies are not considered heroes.
  • Hit triggers still apply when dealing damage to allies. Hit triggers that trigger when they hit a hero will not apply as allies are not heroes.
  • Allies are destroyed when they are dealt more or equal damage than their life. (Dealing more than it’s {h} also destroys it)
  • Damage prevention that applies to only you or to a hero does not prevent damage to the ally.
  • Cards that target heros cannot target allies. (i.e You cannot Voltic Bolt targeting Blasmophet.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mentors

Monarch introduces the new card type Mentor. Mentors look over heroes and provide effects while face up in your arsenal. They accumulate lesson counters over time before allowing you to get a specialization card from your deck. Currently Mentors only exist in Monarch Blitz decks and are tournament legal.

  • Mentors do not have a pitch value or cost and cannot be pitched or played.
  • Mentors have their effects active while they are face up in your arsenal.
  • You cannot arsenal a card if there is not an empty arsenal zone.
  • You do not have to find a specialization card from your deck, you may elect to not find a card. This is because it is looking for a specific type of card and it is a hidden zone. You still must shuffle your deck

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Keywords

Spectra

Spectra is a new keyword that exists on Illusionist Aura cards. When a player is deciding who to target for an attack they may elect to target an Aura with the keyword spectra. When an Aura with spectra is attacked, destroy it and close the combat chain. The attack will not resolve and the combat chain closes.

Example Card:

Genesis

Pitch: 2

Cost: 4

Light Illusionist Instant - Aura

At the start of your turn, you may put a card from your hand into your hero's soul. If it's an Illusionist card, create a Spectral Shield token. If it's a Light card, draw a card.

Spectra (Genesis can be attacked. When Genesis becomes the target of an attack, destroy it and close the combat chain. The attack does not resolve.)

Defense: -

  • Attacks that target a card with spectra do not resolve. Any hit triggers or effects that card has such as go again do not resolve.
  • An attack targeting a spectra card does not resolve. It will open a combat chain and become a chain link but is destroyed when the spectra becomes a target
  • Additional costs and resource cards still need to be paid.
  • Attacking a spectra is not considered attacking a hero.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phantasm

Phantasm is a new keyword that exists on Illusionist attacks. Illusionist attacks with phantasm are powerful but fragile. When an attack with phantasm is defended by a 6{p}+ non-Illusionist attack action card, the attack is destroyed and the combat chain closes.

Example Card:

Wartune Herald

Pitch: 2

Cost: 1

Light Illusionist Action - Attack

If Wartune Herald hits, put it into your hero's soul. (Put this card face up under your hero card.)

Phantasm (If Wartune Herald is defended by a non-Illusionist attack action card with 6 or more {p}, destroy Wartune Herald and close the combat chain.)

Power: 6

Defense: 3

  • If an attack action is destroyed, it does not resolve. Hit triggers and effects that require the action resolving such as go again do not resolve.
  • Both players have priority during the defending step. Note: This is a new rule introduced with the release of Monarch.
  • When an attack with phantasm is defended by a 6{p}+ non-Illusionist attack action, a trigger to destroy the attack is put on the chain. Players can respond to this. When it resolves it checks if the attack action still fulfills the requirements to destroy the attack.
  • Phantasm only triggers when the game state changes from false to true. It does not trigger from true to true. (For example: if a defending card goes from 5{p} to 6{p} it will create a trigger, but a card going from 6{p} to 7{p} will not create another trigger.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Charge

Charge is a new keyword that exist on Light Warrior attacks. This showcases Boltyn’s eagerness to engage in battle and charge his soul in the process. As an additional cost to playing a card with charge you may put a card from your hand into your hero’s soul. This would turn on powerful effects that care about if you have charged this turn. (You may elect to not pay the additional cost of charge - however this would mean you did not charge.)

Example Card:

Express Lightning

Pitch: 1

Cost: 0

Light Action - Attack

As an additional cost to play Express Lightning, you may charge your hero's soul. (Put a card from your hand face up under your hero card.)

Power: 4

Defense: 3

  • Charging is optional. You may play the card without charging.
  • You may only charge up to one card unless otherwise specified.
  • A card may not charge itself. (You cannot put the card you are playing, into your hero’s soul as a part of its own cost)
  • The charged card is put face up under your hero.
  • You are only considered to have charged if a card goes into your hero’s soul from a card with charge. Having a card go into your hero’s soul from another method is not the same.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blood Debt

Blood Debt is a new keyword existing on Shadow cards. Shadow cards can inflict a loss of life to access a greater power. At the end of your turn, you lose 1{h} for each blood debt card in your banished zone.

Example Card:

Howl from Beyond

Pitch: 1

Cost: 2

Shadow Action

You may play Howl from Beyond from your banished zone.
The next attack action card you play this turn gains +3{p}.

Go again

Blood Debt (At the beginning of your end phase, if Howl from Beyond is in your banished zone, lose 1{h}.)

Defense: 2

  • You only lose life at the end phase. Players do not have priority during the end phase.
  • If you have multiple cards with blood debt, you lose 1{h} for each instance of blood debt at the end of turn.
  • Only face-up cards banished with blood debt counts and will lose you {h}. Face-down banished cards have no effects or stats.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spellvoid

Spellvoid is a new keyword primarily on equipment or items. Spellvoid is a one time use effect that prevents arcane damage.

Example Card:

Halo of Illumination

Light Equipment - Head

Instant - {r}, destroy Halo of Illumination: Put a card from your hand into your hero's soul. If it's a Light card, draw a card. (Put the card face up under your hero card.)

Spellvoid 2 (If your hero would be dealt arcane damage, you may destroy Halo of Illumination instead. If you do, prevent 2 arcane damage that source would deal.)

Defense: 0

  • Spellvoid does not go on the chain as it is not a trigger. It is a replacement effect. There is no opportunity to respond after the decision to destroy the card and prevent that damage.
  • Spellvoid is optional. You choose whether to use spellvoid or not at the time the arcane damage resolves.
  • If a card has Spellvoid 2 but only prevents 1 arcane damage, there will not be a leftover prevention shield. Note: It can only defend arcane damage from a single source, Spellvoid 2 cannot prevent one arcane damage each from two different sources.
  • If a card dealing arcane damage is fully prevented by spellvoid (Or in conjunction with other preventions) it would not be considered to have dealt arcane damage and would not trigger effects that rely on arcane damage being dealt.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Returning Keywords

Battleworn

Equipment that wear down after each time they are used to defend. If you defend with a card with Battleworn, put a -1{d} counter on it when the combat chain closes.

Example card:

Hooves of the Shadowbeast

Shadow Brute Equipment - Legs

Whenever a card with 6 or more {p} is put into your banished zone, you may destroy Hooves of the Shadowbeast. If you do, gain 1 action point. (When an equipment is destroyed, it's put into the graveyard.)

Battleworn (If you defend with Hooves of the Shadowbeast, put a -1{d} counter on it when the combat chain closes.)

Defense : 1

  • When you defend with a card it remains on the combat chain until the chain closes, therefore you cannot defend with an equipment multiple times on the same combat chain.
  • A -1{d} counter stays on the card until the card is destroyed or the game ends.
  • If the defense of a card that is defending is below zero, its defense value is considered to be zero.
  • When this card is destroyed, it is sent to your graveyard. (Not when it has 0{d})

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dominate

An attack that is difficult to defend. Cards with dominate cannot be defended with more than 1 card from the defending hero’s hand.

Example card:

Pound for Pound

Pitch:1

Cost: 2

Generic Action - Attack

When you play Pound for Pound, if you have less {h} than an opposing hero, it gains dominate. (The defending hero can't defend Pound for Pound with more than 1 card from their hand.)

Power: 6

Defense: 2

  • You can still defend with equipment and defense reactions played from arsenal in addition to up to 1 card from hand.
  • Playing a defense reaction from your hand counts towards the 1 card from your hand restriction. You cannot defend with a card in your hand then play a defense reaction from your hand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go again

Go again allows multiple actions to be played in a turn when usually playing an action will use up your action point, and therefore end your turn. A card with go again gives the controller of that card or activated ability 1 action point when it resolves.

Example card:

Belittle

Pitch: 3

Cost: 1

Generic Action - Attack

As an additional cost to play Belittle, you may reveal an attack action card with 3 or less base {p} from your hand. If you do, search your deck for a card named Minnowism, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your deck.

Go again

Power: 1

Defense: 2

  • When an action with go again resolves, its controller gains 1 action point.
  • Multiple instances of go again on the same card or activated ability do not stack. If a card or activated ability has multiple instances of go again when it resolves its controller gains 1 action point only.
  • If an action with go again does not resolve, its controller does not gain 1 action point.
  • You cannot reveal a card with no {p} to Belittle. The card must have a value to its power that is 3 or less. (0 is a value)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Opt X

Opt X is a keyword that allows you to look at the top X cards of your deck and put any number of them to the top or bottom of your deck in any order.

Example card:

Blood Tribute

Pitch: 2

Cost: 0

Shadow Instant

Opt 2, then banish the top card of your deck. (Look at the top 2 cards of your deck. You may put them on the top and/or bottom in any order.)

Power: -

Defense: -

  • The number of cards you place on top and bottom of your deck is known to your opponent, the order of the cards are not.
  • You may put all of the cards on the top or all of the cards on the bottom if you so wish.

Card-specific Notes

Heroes and Weapons

Boltyn // Ser Boltyn, Breaker of Dawn

Light Warrior Hero

If you've charged this turn, attacks you control have +1{p} while defended by an attack action card.

Attack Reaction - Banish a card from Boltyn's soul: Target attack with {p} greater than its base {p} gains go again.

Intellect: 4

Life: 20/40

  • Base power is the printed {p} value on a card. (Located at the bottom left corner of a card.)
  • Putting a card into your hero’s soul does not count as charging. Only playing a card with the keyword charge and placing a card into your hero's soul this way counts as charging.
  • All attacks you control gain +1{p} while defended by an attack action card. (This includes your weapon attacks)
  • If the attack no longer has {p} greater than it’s base power when the ability resolves, it will not gain go again.
  • You may use the second ability more than once per turn as it is not a Once per turn ability. You may also target the same attack more than once. Multiple instances of go again do not grant more than one action point.
  • If the second ability has resolved, then the attack no longer has {p} greater than it’s base power, it will still have go again as it has already gained go again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chane // Chane, Bound by Shadow

Shadow Runeblade Hero

Once per Turn Action - Create a Soul Shackle token: Your next Runeblade or Shadow action this turn gains go again. Go again (It's a Shadow Runeblade aura with "At the beginning of your action phase, banish the top card of your deck.")

Intellect: 4

Life: 20/40

  • You may use this ability even if you are not planning to use a Runeblade or Shadow action afterwards.
  • This affects your next action including weapon attacks, action cards and action activated abilities.
  • The Soul Shackle token is created as a part of the cost.
  • Soul Shackle tokens stay in the arena until they are destroyed. (Soul shackles do not get destroyed when the top card of your deck is banished)

Once per Turn Action - {r}{r}{r}: Attack

Whenever you attack with Dread Scythe, deal 1 arcane damage to the defending hero.

A hero dealt damage by Dread Scythe can't gain {h} during their next action phase.

Power: 3

  • The arcane damage is not dependent on the attack hitting.
  • The defending player chooses if they are taking the arcane damage first before defending the attack.
  • Both the attack and the arcane damage count as damage by Dread Scythe and either would cause the hero dealt damage to not gain {h} during their next action phase.
  • If a hero dealt damage by Dread Scythe would gain {h} during their next action phase they instead gain 0. (They may still play the card or activate the ability that would gain {h})

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once per Turn Action - {r}{r}: Attack

Whenever you attack with Hexagore, the Death Hydra, it deals damage to you equal to 6 minus the number of cards with blood debt in your banished zone.

Power: 6

  • The damage it deals to you cannot be defended. It is also not arcane damage so it cannot be prevented by spellvoid or arcane barrier. The damage can be prevented by prevention effects that prevent any kind of damage.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Levia // Levia, Shadowborn Abomination

Shadow Brute Hero

If a card with 6 or more {p} has been put into your banished zone this turn, cards you own lose blood debt during the end phase.

Intellect: 4

Life: 20/40

  • It doesn't matter where the card was from before it was put into your banish zone or if the card remains in the banish zone, as long as the criteria has been met this turn.
  • The cards only lose blood debt during the end phase. They still have blood debt during the action phase.
  • If a card has multiple instances of blood debt, they lose all instances during the end phase. (If the criteria is met)
  • Levia checks the last known information of the attack action card before it is put into your banished zone. For example if a 5{p} card has +1{p} from attacking, then is put into the banished zone when it hits, Levia will see this attack action as 6{p} when it is put into the banished zone. Similarly if an attack that has 6{p} base has its power reduced, Levia would not see it as 6{p}+

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ravenous Meataxe

Brute Weapon - Axe (2H)

Once per Turn Action - {r}{r}: Attack

Whenever you attack with Ravenous Meataxe, draw a card then discard a random card. If a card with 6 or more {p} is discarded this way, Ravenous Meataxe gains +2{p} until end of turn.

Power: 3

  • There is no window to play cards or respond after drawing the card but before discarding the card. (If your hand is empty you will immediately discard the card you draw)

  • This is not optional, if you would be dealt damage you must destroy Spectral Shield and prevent 1 damage that source would deal.
  • If you have multiple Spectral Shields in play you choose which prevent effect to apply first. If you are taking multiple damage you must prevent all of it with Spectral Shields if able. (You would be dealt the excess damage)
  • Loss of life is not being dealt damage and would not destroy Spectral Shield or prevent the 1 damage.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soul Shackle

Shadow Runeblade Token - Aura

(Auras stay in the arena.)

At the beginning of your action phase, banish the top card of your deck.

Go again

Power: 1/2/3

Defense: 2

  • You may search for any pitch value Minnowism as long as the name of the card is “Minnowism”.
  • You choose whether you want to pay the additional cost at the time you play the card.
  • If you do pay the additional cost, the ability becomes a layer on the chain when the card is played. Players can still respond to this, e.g with instants.
  • The attack action card you reveal must have a value. (0 is a value)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blood Drop Brocade

Instant - {r}{r}{r}: Exude Confidence gains +2{p}. Activate this ability only while Exude Confidence is attacking.

Power: 4

Defense: 2

  • The effect only applies when the attack is on the combat chain. Players can respond to Exude Confidence before it becomes a layer on the chain with instants.
  • If Exude Confidence is on the combat chain and gains {p} from an effect that would then put it at greater power than the defending card(s) then the effect of Exude Confidence would become active.

Defense: 3

  • Dimenxxional Crossroads is a non-attack action card so if you play a non-attack action card from the banished zone the same turn you played Dimenxxional Crossroads, the effect won’t trigger.
  • The ability just checks if you have played another card of that type this turn. It does not matter if that card was played from hand or banished zone.

  • Mentors do not have a pitch value or cost and cannot be pitched or played.
  • Mentors have their effect active when they are face up in your arsenal.
  • You cannot arsenal a card if there is not an empty arsenal zone.

  • Lord Sutcliffe does arcane damage to all heroes, not just opposing.
  • The turn player decides the order of replacement effects that would apply first. For example, if both players have arcane barrier, the turn player decides which replacement effect applies first and therefore who has to decide to prevent first.

Phantasmal Footsteps

Illusionist Equipment - Legs

The first time an Illusionist attack action card you control is destroyed each turn, you may pay {r}. If you do, gain 1 action point.

If Phantasmal Footsteps defends a non-Illusionist attack with 6 or more {p}, destroy it when the combat chain closes.

Defense: 0

  • An attack action card going into a graveyard from the combat chain is not the same as being destroyed.
  • If you elect not to use it’s effect on the first Illusionist attack action card you control that is destroyed, you cannot use the effect for the rest of the turn.
  • The Illusionist attack action card being destroyed does not need to be the one in the current chain link. For example if an illusionist attack action card in a previous chain link was destroyed (I.e by phantasm at a later point due to an instant or reaction) then Phantasmal Footsteps will still trigger.
  • When you defend with Phantasmal Footsteps and pay {r} it’s defense becomes 1, even if you defend with it an additional time this turn and pay {r} it won’t add any additional {d}.
  • Phantasmal Footsteps only changes it’s defense to 1{d}, it does not take into account or remove any -1{d} counters. If Phantasmal Footsteps has a -1{d} counter on it then its defense becomes 1{d}, it would have 0{d}.
  • You can defend with an equipment as long as it's in the equipment zone. If the attacking player closes the chain, Phantasmal Footsteps would return to the equipment zone provided it was not destroyed by defending an attack with 6 or more {p} and thus you would be able to defend again.
  • Phantasmal Footsteps does not have Battleworn. It will not gain a -1{d} counter from defending.
  • Phantasmal Footsteps {d} becoming 1 lasts until end of turn. You do not have to pay {r} again if you defend with it a second time for it to have 1{d}.
  • You cannot gain action points during your opponent’s turn. (You may still pay the {r} if an illusionist attack action is destroyed, you just would not gain the action point when it resolves)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phantasmal Spear

Pitch:3/2/1

Cost: 1

Phantasmify

Pitch: 3/2/1

Cost: 1

Illusionist Action

The next attack action card you play this turn is Illusionist in addition to its other class types, and gains +3/4/5{p} and phantasm. (If the attack is defended by a non-Illusionist attack action card with 6 or more {p}, destroy it and close the combat chain.)

Go again

Defense: 2

  • When an attack has an effect when played that would become a layer on the chain, that effect will happen before the defending window and therefore even if the attack is destroyed, the effect has already happened.
  • When an attack action is destroyed the rest of the card effects will not resolve such as go again which rely on the chain link resolving.

Defense: 2

  • Mentors do not have a pitch value or cost and cannot be pitched or played.
  • Mentors have their effect active when they are face up in your arsenal.
  • You cannot arsenal a card if there is not an empty arsenal zone.
  • You do not have to find a specialization card from your deck, you may elect to not find a card. This is because it is looking for a specific type of card and it is a hidden zone. You still must shuffle your deck.
  • If you create multiple spectral shields at the same time you still only draw one card and put one lesson counter on The Librarian.

Dusk Path Pilgrimage

Pitch: 3/2/1

Cost: 1

Warrior Action

Your next weapon attack this turn gains +1/2/3{p} and "If this hits, you may attack an additional time with this weapon this turn." (You must have an action point to attack an additional time.)

Go again

Defense: 3

  • If there are multiple effects that let your weapon attack an additional time you would be able to attack an additional time for each trigger.
  • You must still pay resources and have the required action point to attack again. This simply bypasses the “Once per Turn” part of the attack for one attack.
  • This only affects the next weapon attack. The +{p} does not affect or stay on the weapon.

Go again

Defense: 3

  • The first part of the card only affects your next weapon attack and the “if this weapon is defended by an attack action it gains +1{p} until end of turn” does not affect or stay on the weapon after you have attacked with it.
