Rune-Tail's Essence Discussion
1 month ago
If you have Rune-Tail's Essence you will prevent all damage that would be dealt to Planeswalker Creatures you control, regardless of whether that's combat damage from it attacking or blocking, combat damage from an unblocked attack directed at it, or noncombat damage from any source, even damage targeted at you being redirected to the Planeswalker.
If a Planeswalker Creature ever has 0 loyalty or 0 or less toughness it will be put into the graveyard as a statebased action. If you aren't preventing damage to them there are some interesting things. Any damage dealt to it removes that many loyalty counters AND marks that much damage on it (if that damage exceeds it's toughness it will be destroyed). If your opponent attacks, the Planeswalker can block a creatures attacking it OR a creature attacking you. It will only deal combat damage to creature(s) it blocks, not to unblocked creatures that are attacking it, but will take damage from both.

Hello! I have an Avacyn deck - Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*, you may have seen it - and I might be able to help you a bit :)
I find that 41 lands is far too high for a deck like this. Especially with your CMC hovering around 3.5, I generally wouldn't run more than 37 in a deck like this. I'd cut the ETB tapped ones first.
I built my deck to use her as a Voltron commander so obviously our strategies are different, but I feel like one of your major issues in this deck will be your own flip killing your creatures. Have you considered Mark of Asylum and Light of Sanction and Rune-Tail's Essence to protect your own board?
Either way, happy deckbuilding! I'd love to hear your thoughts on my list as well if you have a few moments.

KeelHaul10: Honestly? I've just found that it's somewhat irrelevant. My deck's built to work around the sweeper (lots of protection and expendable creatures) so it never harms me too much TBH.
Also, I'd prefer Rune-Tail's Essence :)
...seriously, though, why do people keep telling me to remove O-Naginata? It's simply one of the best cards in this deck, and allows many of the most explosive wins (simply because of its absurdly low mana:effect ratio). I'd cut Umezawa's Jitte or Sunforger before I'd cut O-Naginata haha.

Well, in that case I think you need to decide exactly what direction you want to take this deck in. As it stands now, I think the deck is best suited to go the mono-white direction; Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Ajani's Pridemate, Archangel of Thune, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Rune-Tail's Essence, Panharmonicon and Eerie Interlude all reward you for playing to the board and the absolute best way of building a consistent mana-base without spending a ton of money is to be mono-colour.

My apologies if this has been asked before and I'm sure the answer is simple enough.
Is the flip state-based (right terminology)? Meaning, if I drop down to 29 life, does it become a creature again and if I have say lifelink that gets me back above 30, do I flip him again?
I ran this in Forge and he stayed flipped as an enchantment permanently, but I was promptly told "Forge messed that up".
