It doesn't end the turn, but Platinum Angel and Exquisite Archangel both stop you from losing

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.

Phurex on Just a Touch

Yeah, Endless Whispers can be tricky sometimes but it's enough to cast it only if necessary, and same goes for the Platinum Angel , so i try to never have them out at the same time.

Both Lich's Mastery and Stunning Reversal were in previous iterations of the deck, I decided to cut them because they weren't reliable enough. Lich's Mastery because the deck doesn't focus too much on lifegain and tends to have a small board (not taking artifacts into consideration since they are often very much needed and I wouldn't want to exile them); and Stunning Reversal because in my meta being at 1 life pretty much equals being dead anyway, so I ended up never wanting to cast it. Maybe in the future I could at least try giving the Mastery another chance, but right now I feel comfortable with the amount of ways I have to cast Phage.

Withering Boon was also in a previous version of the deck, alongside with Imp's Mischief , Thrull Wizard and other more controlly-ish cards. I ended up cutting them in favor of board wipes or combo pieces; they weren't reliable enough as actual disruption and I never used them to put Phage in the yard and pull her back later. The only way I have to get her back to my hand from the graveyard is with Phyrexian Reclamation , so if I were to use Withering Boon to put her there I would basically find myself spending 11 mana, 5 life and 2 cards just to "draw" her, and then I would still have to cast her for 7 more mana. It just wasn't worth it.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Endless whispers is pretty hysterical but keep in mind that it can lose your Platinum Angel to an opponent. Also Lich's Mastery and Stunning Reversal are ways to Not Lose with style. Withering Boon can work if you can fetch from your graveyard.

Looks like fun! I would suggest to use Reliquary Tower and maybe even Thought Vessel , since you run some draw abilities, which can be devastating for your opponents if you don't have to discard down to a maximum handsize, e.g. with Necropotence or Necrologia .

In this regard, I would also suggest to use Ad Nauseam because (1) besides Necropotence it is as black as a black card can be, and (2) it serves well with your lifegain.

Further, although I fully get the idea of using lifegain to ensure your lifetotal while using, e.g., Erebos' draw ability, you may consider to run Platinum Angel . If you have angel on the battlefield and play Ad Nauseam at the end of opponent's turn, you may put your entire library into your hand. On your turn, you play Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond , gain +1 life = win the game.

I would also consider to use Vraska's Contempt over Slaughter and to use Murderous Cut over Go for the Throat .

Finally, that Cabal Coffers should most definitely be added to the deck, at least instead of Cabal Stronghold , as Coffers is simply just endlessly better.


Kjartan on ▷ NEW Karn TRIPLE-Combo! ◁【WAR!】

I don't like Liquimetal Coating . I think there are just too few situations where you have between 6 and 9 mana, a Karn, and your opponent has an activated ability that practically wins him the game.

Would definitely take Pithing Needle over spyglass. You're fetching it once it's needed after all, so spyglasses additional ability is not that important.

Platinum Angel would be the card I would include instead of coating. It's a straight up auto-win against some of your toughest matchups, and it will always lead to a win if it's your followup to lattice.

If you wanted to be extremely hateful you could run Abyssal Persecutor and Platinum Angel with enough cards to protect them just to completely lock the game down

+1 for Mayael, but needs more Godsire . How have you enjoyed playing this deck? Do you find you need much removal for your playgroup? If you have issues against wide decks, maybe something like Balefire Dragon will help or similar effects.

Also I've really like running Chance for Glory as a finisher in my deck. Its amazing. I always combine it with Exquisite Archangel and or Platinum Angel so I dont lose lol. Also, if tokens are getting you down, Elemental Mastery will give you the tools to wreak havoc and provide. Here is my deck for reference, but your deck looks pretty dope!!
