Ever since I heard of Eight-and-a-half tails and the trickery you can achieve with him I've wanted to make a deck with him as my frontrunner. I could be wrong but there's something incredibly appealing about making it so my opponent never does damage to my board. I also run a rakdos deck that's straight aggro so I feel like a mono-white control deck is just out of my realm of play, giving me a new insight on the color as a whole.

The deck focuses around Eight-and-a-half tails and his ability to prevent any removal while I stockpile large artifacts like Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of War and Peace, etc and equip them to whoever I please. I'm looking for suggestions and helpful feedback.

Gaze into the Iris with this commander and realize that life is more than a series of ones and zeroes.

with your equip focus Dispatch should be an effective removal. Glaring Spotlight is another card to get around hexproof as that will be a hamper for you. Heartstone effects everyone but helps with the cost of your commanders first effect and a few other cards you have. Hope that helps, the deck looks good.

I appreciate the input! The issue i seem to have with commander is the very vast pool of cards to pull from. These cards didn't even appear on my radar. Thanks!

Looks like someone mains Zenyatta

actually funnily enough i don't. I run Pharah, Mei, Lucio, Ana, Soldier primarily. I'm just too obsessed with Overwatch that I couldn't passup the opportunity to make the connection between Eight and a half tails and Zenyatta :)

Looks phenomenal! I love the commander, probably the same one I'd use if I made mono-white. So much fun. I hope it serves you well!

Well, I respect the reference! I have had a soft spot in my heart for Eight-and-a-Half-Tails since I pulled him from a booster.

I'm a S76 main myself, so props for that as well. Fun stuff!

Karoo could be used as a commander land. Only tapping one land to activate their ability.

Have you thought of Endless Horizons?

I used to play with this Commander in this past. What this guy needs is a great amount of mana to be really functional in EDH multiplayer.

I would advise you to get more mana ramp/rocks aboard.

Cards like: Mana Crypt, Caged Sun, Mox Opal and Extraplanar Lens help with this.

Endless Horizons is tricky and could easily backfire if your meta is removal heavy.

Thoughts on Godsend?

We are all one within the iris, by the way.

Good equipment and gives devotion to Nykthos.

Good cmc for what it does.

+3 +3 makes perfect sense in Voltron.

You get an Upvote just for the title :)

Thanks for the support and suggestions! I like most of the cards but don't think mana crypt or mox opal are right given how much money they cost me. Endless Horizons seems cool but I have a lot of manafix that may make it moot. I've been super busy so I'm not really able to sit down and make adequate switches just this second but I definitely see some things that are gonna find themselves in. I'm glad you like the deck- and yes. We are all one within the Iris.

If you play free for all multiplayer, Assault Suit always goes down well. It lets your opponents kill each other with your commander ( but not you ). Speeds the game up nicely and your commander damage stacks regardless of who's currently using it.

Bastion Protector is a great card to protect your commander, and the +2/+2 goes well with the voltron.

Wayfarer's Bauble is some of the best early game ramp white can get, but the real reason in suggesting it is it's synergy with Emeria Shepherd. It's really quite rediculous when you get it online.

You've inspired me to make an overwatch themed deck. Junkrat deck here I come!

Add the Circles of Protection.

Also, use Spirit Mantle and Holy Mantle. They're the best protection cards in the game besides Mother of Runes.

Toolcraft Exemplar could fit in nicely.

Zen could really prime Bushi Tenderfoot (say "ryujin no ken wo kurae" when you flip him)

Painter's Servant could remove the need to pay the one mana to make something white, Paradise Plume gains you a life every time you use Eight-and-a-Half-Tails's shenanigans, Prismatic Ward can make one of your creatures basically indestructible, Story Circle can make you basically indestructible, and Voice of All always has protection.

March 20, 2017 3:06 p.m.

Hey, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant is one I don't see mentioned nearly often enough. I think he'd fit right in your deck for you.

Painter's Servant is unfortunately also banned in commander.

Ahh dang, I should have checked the banlist. The servant got me way too excited. Ah well. Thanks for letting me know!
