Everyone here has probably heard of painting a target on someone's head because of a brutal play or the like, but what if you caused them to suddenly become the target while defending yourself from a potential assault? Enter Zedruu the Greathearted, equipped to give your opponent a card that could win them the game or suddenly paint an enormous target.

This deck came to me as I thought of a way to both break Zedruu and beef my Brion Stoutarm lifelink/instant win-condition deck. What wound up happening is I merged the two decks together to form this one. Imagine giving the person to the right of you your Felidar Sovereign while they're right at 40 still. How quickly might the group go after them and how can you prevent them from going after you? Thus, it is a deck that strongly consists of defense cards and potential alternate win scenarios for yourself as well.

Some of these alternate win conditions involve most of the "target makers," a Near-Death Experience with Worship and/or Phyrexian Processor, Serra Avatar on Soul Foundry with Brion Stoutarm chucking your life total at opponents, Insurrection, etc.

Here is the current list. Any advice would be greatly appreciated (and yes, I'm well aware I need to touch up the mana a little bit; I'll get around to it one of these days).
