Eight-and-a-Half-Tails Discussion

SteelSentry on Decisions decisions.

You want an aggressive commander and a non-aggressive commander? That's a bit... broad, but I'll try. I'll stick with Selesnya since that's the only restriction.

Good aggressive commanders are Rhys the Redeemed for tokens (and can be mono-W or mono-G if you want), Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith for voltron, and Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist for a flexible commander that can be anywhere in between. Ezuri, Renegade Leader heads a powerful elfball strategy, and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is good for stompy or Eldrazi. Sram, Senior Edificer is another good voltron commander, and either of the Odrics (Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Odric, Master Tactician) work for mono-white.

For non-aggressive commanders, Gaddock Teeg is a powerful stax piece. Selvala, Explorer Returned and Karametra, God of Harvests are both really good and open ended, anywhere from group hug to enchantress to turbo-ramp. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is good for control, and either of the Thalias (Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben) or Hokori, Dust Drinker work for prison/stax. Druids is sneaky good with Seton, Krosan Protector, and mono-green has some good lands decks with Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Titania, Protector of Argoth.

I find people really underestimate Eight-and-a-Half-Tails. That ability to give protection and change the color of things to white is ridiculous. He can be a little rough on mana since you only have white but removal and blocking him simply don't work. Makes some fun interactions with stuff like Circle of Protection: White too.

Hey all.

So I've been taking a short break from mtg lately, only playing online from time to time, and wanna get back in the swing of things.

Currently I'm wanting to throw a mono white deck together for commander night Thursday, and I'm stuck between using Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails. We're a tier two meta (atleast last time I was there which was a few months ago),and we play games with 4 or 5 players.

I love the idea of mono-white control so Thalia might be the obvious choice, but I also don't want to get targeted, and with the storm//combo decks in my meta, I feel like I'd be the first to get gunned down.

Any thoughts? I know mono white isn't the best, but honestly I keep coming back to it. It's my first color in magic and overall my favorite.

You might want Lightning Greaves and maybe Hammer of Nazahn to protect Raff. I think you listed Talisman of Dominance instead of Talisman of Progress. Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems helpful. Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle could be good to respond to some threats. Summoner's Egg can help cheat stuff in response to boardwipes. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is really painful to flash in. Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Batterskull, Wurmcoil Engine, and Platinum Emperion could be good combat tricks. Lavinia of the Tenth can be a useful delay in these colors. Ephara, God of the Polis could be nice for card draw if you're flashing in creatures. Nezahal, Primal Tide could be a good replacement for Venser's Journal.

I'd like to throw my hat into the mix with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails he's cheap to get out and provides protection to your stuff. you can watch your opponents squirm in there chairs trying to touch your equipment that now have protection from everything. XD i use Nahiri now but its still the same deck, check it out. Nahiri Equipment Vultron

Hi AR,

going ultra competitive, I presume you are aiming at a Sisay Combo approach, like I did.Then I would cut these cards:

  • Angel of Jubilation : too many intensive for what it does and can't be fetched by Sisay
  • Eight-and-a-Half-Tails : You are the agressor, so the protection is not needed. Most of the time you use the mana to play powerful spells anyway.
  • Oath of Nissa : Not powerful enough to warrent a spot
  • Oath of Ajani : likewise
  • Chromatic Lantern : too slow for Sisay. I feel that each piece of ramp that you find in your opening hand should help you get Sisay out a turn sooner. For a 2-color deck I think there are far better options in this color combination.

Add:

  • Aven Mindcensor : This will hurt people. You can even respond to a fetch land ;-)
  • Avacyn, Angel of Hope : This is a powerhouse where the mana intensive cmc is justified
  • Glissa Sunseeker : It is partially a meta call, but I love it to screw with peoples boardstate by blowing up vital artifacts. But I sometimes take te stax route and this helps me do it.
  • Mangara of Corondor : If there is a problem on the board, this baby will solve it for you and can be found by Sisay.

Overall, you have to be prepared to sink some serious money into a competitive build, because cards like Gaea's Cradle, Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Crypt and such really improve the pace and consistancy of the deck.

And then we didn't even discuss the landbase. Which is also an expensive part.

Still it's great to pilot her, even when you are not at full potential yet.

Best of luck and fun!

Hello!

Today I'm conflicted between two decks: Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero. I've seen some cool lists with Lin Sivvi as a Control kinda combo deck, but the fox also has the voltron sub theme people all know and some love. I'm trying to make this deck fairly controlling and I would love any lists or feedback from you guys!
