Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant Discussion

epajula -- Hey there! Lots of ideas here. I have a few of them either in my deck or side/maybeboarded. I ordered a Comeuppance and Marshal's Anthem. They certainly seem like they could be good fits depending on what I'm playing against.

Metachemist -- Hello! Altar of Dementia seems like it could be a lot of fun. So much so I ran and got one and slotted it in right away lol. Looking forward to trying it out! Thanks much for the recommendation!

ANemoAcids -- Heya! Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant looks quite interesting. I change cards fairly often in my deck (I always update my tappedout list when I do) and one iteration focuses heavily on life gain. I think I could find a slot for this in that variance so I ordered one! Thank you for the idea!

If you rarely find yourself dropping below 30 life with all that lifegain, in a tokens deck Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant is an excellent add.

Radius I like some of your suggestions, but, I don't quite agree with all of them, for this deck:

  • Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel are two/three (maybe not Pristine Angel?) swaps I'd be interested in, but finding what to change or remove is always difficult.

  • Serra's Guardian, Victory's Herald, and Angelic Guardian are all bodies I've considered, but I'm not sure what I'd swap out for them; they're on the more expensive casting cost side, and those spots are already filled.

  • Can't have 4 copies of sanctuary, but I do have one in the deck already.

  • The exile part on Urza's Ruinous Blast isn't something I'm a big fan of, by its definitely sideboard material.

  • I actually did run Helm of the Host for a while, but it was always too expensive to equip, and I was never really able to use it. Might try running it again, see if I can pull it off now with all the changes I've made.

It would be worth while for you to look into anti-aggro/burn decks in modern, vintage, or legacy. The way you are playing is almost closer to those formats than it is to commander. The difference between starting with 20 life and 40 life is huge.

You could try to out aggro them with Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. With the low cost warriors this deck could be similar to Edgar Markov which is banned in 1v1 I think... Emmara, Soul of the Accord is another that goes wide so quickly she is really hard to keep up with.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant are great answers to burn. Maybe the new Tajic, Legion's Edge?

Something of note is that red has an incredibly difficult time dealing with enchantments and the vast majority of their removal for creatures is damage. So if you can prevent damage or gain life consistently and keep drawing cards you should simply out value them. Red has major weaknesses and you should exploit them.

@enpc - paying life is still viable. EDH decks may run Tarnished Citadel, but largely due to the initial staring life of 40. Would you pay 6 life for the same effect in EDH?

The problem really does sound silly when said out loud - after all, any new format would suffer from this "problem". But consider cards that specificy an absolute life total, rather than a % difference or total change in life total; the difference between "if you have 30 or more life" and "if your life total is 10 or more than your starting life total" may not sound like much, but just look at the cash price of Serra Ascendant or Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant. the better solotion would be to have a blanket statement for EDH that alters how life total dependant cards work. be it "less than half of their starting life", or "with at least 10 life lower than their starting life", the zendikar vampires would suddently be playable, while Sorin Markov would stop being an overwhelming powerhouse.

just my 2 cents, though

Oh this is a fun one! What is your goal with this deck? Spit out tokens and make them big? The only thing you have to worry about with her on the field are mass destruction and mass sac effects like Dictate of Erebos. I would consider Eldrazi Monument, Mother of Runes, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant,Hero of Bladehold, Crystalline Crawler, Hangarback Walker, Mindless Automaton, Bloodspore Thrinax, Bramblewood Paragon, Hardened Scales, Curse of Predation, Gyre Sage, Walking Ballista, Cradle of Vitality and maybe Oreskos Explorer, Sun Titan, Gift of Immortality, Sunbond, and Prowling Serpopard. Sorry, I felt like maybe I was listing abit I don't want you to feel like I'm trying to build your deck. I know it can take the joy out of building for some people :) Anyway, good job so far and happy tuning!
