MstrCpr Thanks mate. It's been in the works a VERY long time and has won many many tournaments.

The Paradox Engine ban was at first a disaster, but now, I can still win turn 5-6 virtually all the time, and IF I get a good draw, then I can still win turn 4! ;)

I haven't made any notes for a long time and I really should update...

But to answer your questions regarding Vivien, Monsters' Advocate, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails;

Let's just say that I am constantly tossing up whether to include Akroma's Memorial or not due to it's mana cost and the introduction of Crashing Drawbridge. I deliberately stay away from mana costs of non-creatures of higher than 4 so Gaddock Teeg is not an issue. So having a planeswalker of Vivien, with a cost of 5 with no real instant win - I just can't see it's value. Same with Ugin - just an overkill and horrendous cost of 8.

Ashaya is just to expensive for what it does. I mean I used to ALWAYS run the combo Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for win in removing opponents lands. But I also have a lot of wincons now so I just want to keep the mana costs down.

Eight Tails was a card I used to run, but I found I rarely needed it in Tournaments and if you are doing it only for removing opponents lands, then the above said Elesh Norn/Kamahl wins hands down.

The latest iteration and what I am working on is to ensure I can get the 'haste' out easily, ie Oswald Fiddlebender with artifact tutor so I can get Thousand-Year Elixir out, and then I can again remove Akroma's Memorial, and put back in Masako the Humorless

The deck has undergone a LOT of changes over the years, but still kicks butt and is VERY reliable. (I did sell some cards - mainly lands and foils - kicking myself over selling my foils of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds) So hat's why the lands don't seem 'stable'.

Thanks for commenting and the appreciation.

Hello, wanted to say love this iteration of the deck, I think Captain Sisay is a real cool commander and I've been working on trying to figure out what I want to do with my non-cedh Cpt Sisay deck, and I like your list a lot. Something I was curious on, besides you most recent updates, are what do you think of lines involving Vivien, Monsters' Advocate, or Ashaya, Soul of the Wild? I think both are pretty solid win con options. The more fun based line I've been looking at is using Ugin, the Spirit Dragon along with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails to remove my opponents lands (fun for me that is).

CptAzzi on 8.5 Tails: Equipment with protection?

1 year ago

I have a Situation that bugged me for a while now: I know that a creature with protection from white can't be equipped by white equipment (E.g. Godsend) But what happens if i have my Eight-and-a-Half-Tails equipped with a colorless equipment (E.g. Sword of Hearth and Home ), my opponent casts Disenchant on the sword and I give the sword protection from white? It will be protected from the Removalspell, but will it fall of my creature? When i looked up the rules,I only found the following:

702.16d A permanent with protection can’t be equipped by Equipment that have the stated quality or fortified by Fortifications that have the stated quality. Such Equipment or Fortifications become unattached from that permanent as a state-based action, but remain on the battlefield. (See rule 704, “State-Based Actions.”)

Thanks in Advance :)

DBCooper Thanks I always loved the idea of truly unique decks that have potential power. Now I just need a modern playable version of Earnest Fellowship so I can build my Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck as currently Earnest Fellowship is like the only real enabler and it is legacy or older legality.

Nice! Eight-and-a-Half-Tails however, I'm not sure what your plan is with this card, but be aware that all attached auras will fall off if you target Light-Paws, since all auras are white. Mask of Law and Grace & Shield of Duty and Reason can be useful for protection, or a mid to late game Spectra Ward once Light-Paws is up to strength and has a double strike effect from Battle Mastery / Duelist's Heritage, Spectra Ward shuts the door for new auras to attach, but the already attached auras remain on Light-Paws. Mantle of the Ancients is good recursion and also boosts Light-Paws.

Earnest Fellowship, Ohran Frostfang, Hexdrinker, Glory, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails -- honestly I actually have more of a love for protection versus the other unblockable abilities if I can get ahold of it (cmc) can be rough on protection though. I made a Marisi enchantress deck & haven't looked back since, it performs pretty well.
