Palisade Giant Discussion

Shyachi33 on Andy's Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck

2 weeks ago

hi, just watched the Legendary Creature Podcast and as someone that loves mono white AND Eight-and-a-Half Tails, i'd like to put some input in the deck.

first of all, i would cut ALL of the unsynergistic "lose-less" cards like: Dawn Elemental , Blinding Angel , Guardian of the Gateless , Palisade Giant , Platinum Angel , Selfless Squire , Ghostly Prison , Pariah , and Gideon of the Trials . none of these cards advance your game state, or put you closer to a win. If anything these cards only help you durdle around, hoping you can squeeze out a cheeky win. you already run the 3 circle of protection cards that will more or less synergistically do most of that already, and you can also add Idyllic Tutor as redundancy. i would probably replace the lose-less cards for more hatebears, like Aven Mindcensor , Angel of Jubilation , and Containment Priest . you're also running only 2 creatures with an etb effects, so cards like Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff can be very back breaking against other more creature based decks.

if you want commander damage to be your wincon, you should run bigger "bombs" or equipments/auras like Eldrazi Conscription and/or Blackblade Reforged on top of the strata scythe and umezawa's jitte.

snow-covered plains are cheap right now. so possibly investing in Extraplanar Lens (which unfortunately isn't cheap) might be something worth while for the deck.

Scuttlemutt is a cute ramp piece that can also paint creatures white. Cloudchaser Kestrel has an etb effect AND can paint things white also

i noticed you ran Steelshaper's Gift in the video, but it's not in your current list. need an update? if you don't already have it, Open the Armory is also a good way to look for those voltron pieces.

you only have 6 cards in your entire deck that can shuffle your making Sensei's Divining Top mostly a waste of time, at that point Crystal Ball would do you better as you can scry away "bad" cards at the top of your library, unlike SDT. if you add the 5 fetchlands, and more tutors then you can reconsider it.

Now onto more spicy tech. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and All Is Dust both have great synergy with 8.5 since you can paint other people's lands and artifacts white.

adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in the deck can make temple of the false god and maze of ith tap for mana, BUT it also allows you to run some extra spicy cards like Karma and Royal Decree which, with any of the circle of protection cards, for 1 mana you can make it 1 sided.

Illumination a solid counterspell that people won't see coming, and you can stop gross cards like omniscience, and mind over matter.

Renounce the Guilds is also a great way to kill everyone's non-mono color deck commanders.

not sure of the timing of the filming, but Smothering Tithe and Generous Gift should both be auto includes in every white deck.

if you are able to get your hands on the fetchlands, Brought Back can be a really good include, along with Lotus Field .

Cavalier of Dawn is also a strong include.

end notes: try to keep your deck as low to the ground as possible, with a very low mana curve, you want to play cards but also keep as much mana open to do any of your 8.5 shinanigans. if you spend 6+ mana on a spell on your man phase, it really limits what you can and cant do on other people's turns, which you want to mainly be doing with a commander like 8.5 that screams CONTROL.

I'm digging the invincible and destroy all mashed together. Creates strong board control and allows you to swing uncontested.

Fist, I've noticed you're running 46 lands, which is quite a few. I think you could cut down to 38 very easily, especially if you cut a few of the larger CMC spells in favor of cheaper alternatives.

So what would I spend those 8 land slots on? Tutors and ramp.

Enlightened Tutor Open the Armory will both help you find Darksteel Plate or Worldslayer

Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map tutor you to your special lands. Tithe can help you with card advantage.

Serenity could be a hot include too for more control. Porphyry Nodes works in a similar vein for creatures and probably combos better with your deck. Planar Collapse is another cheap wiper that can clear the board for you.

Knight of the Holy Nimbus works surprisingly well here too.

I don't think you actually want All Is Dust for this deck! Your commander flipped is a white permanent, and sacrifice goes through indestructible! One of the lower cost mass destruction ( Porphyry Nodes / Planar Collapse ) could easily fit this slot if you didn't use it to replace some plains. Fiend Hunter is also an excellent choice, as it lets you reuse ETB effects by wiping the board, or gives you spot removal on an opponents problem creature.

Not a fan of Omen Machine here either. Pretty expensive for a stax type piece, would much rather see Aven Mindcensor for flash blowouts + beats or more wipes or Spirit of the Labyrinth to keep draw-hate in your list.

Emeria Shepherd Adarkar Valkyrie and Palisade Giant could all be lower CMC creatures to smooth over your early game. Soltari Visionary could give some extra control elements, while Samurai of the Pale Curtain could help against graveyard strategies. Dust Elemental lets you reset your ETB creatures or can be flashed in at EOT before yours to prepare for a board wipe. Even Serene Master could be good for early game to help you get more to mid game!

Palisade Giant can be a great fog engine to frustrate your opponents. Gift of Immortality will save you some headaches if Alesha dies. Mad Prophet is perfect for getting high mana creatures in the graveyard early to cheat out with Alesha, with the added benefit of card draw. Panharmonicon would be great with all your ETB triggers.

DerektheRed just use Protector of the Crown , trample damage over him and it will be put back on xD but Palisade Giant and Pariah / Pariah's Shield can work too.

Yes.

Combat Damage is dealt simultaneously and you can apply the replacement effect of Palisade Giant to that single event of damage. After the damage, state-based actions will check to see if any creatures have damage marked on them more than their toughness and find the giant with 100 damage marked on it, and propmtly the giant will die.

does Palisade Giant take all damage even if it goes over his toughness? For example if my opponent attack’s with 100 1/1s does she take all the damage or do I take 100-toughness?

What happens if a Palisade Giant is enchanted with a Treacherous Link?

As I understand it, if you own that creature and would take damage, it goes to be redirected to the creature, then Treacherous Link would go to direct the damage back to you... and then you would take the damage, as the replacement effect won't apply to the same thing twice?

Similarly, if the creature would be dealt damage, it would be redirected to you by the enchantment, then redirected back to the creature by its own ability, and then it would take the damage?

Do I have that right? Or maybe it has something to do with layers. Layers will be the death of me.

Scion_of_Darkness Good idea! I was also thinking about using Stonehewer Giant or Puresteel Paladin to cheat Darksteel Plate and/or Lightning Greaves onto Palisade Giant.
