Eight-and-a-Half-Tails Discussion

NV_1980 on Avacyn's Angels of the Apocalypse

1 week ago

Hi,

In an Avacyn deck, the main problem you're facing is getting her on the board and then keeping her there. We would therefore recommend you think about the following cards:

  • Cavern of Souls: makes all your Angels immune to countering; very expensive though.
  • Silence: of course, this can be countered by itself, but if it isn't you can summon Avacyn next with impunity.
  • Defense Grid: tax on spells that counter; wonderful!
  • Mana Web: forces opponents to use up way more mana sources than they might want to during their own turns, making less mana available for spell-casting.
  • Grand Abolisher: we second vasarto77's suggestion; please mainboard this because it is so good.
  • Mother of Runes/Giver of Runes/Eight-and-a-Half-Tails: great protection in case the greaves/boots are unavailable.
  • Shadowspear: not for your protection, but to deal with theirs in case they have it.

We hope you enjoy this feedback. Have fun with the brew. In case you are curious, here is our Avacyn deck.

Regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

  1. Arcanis the Omnipotent
  2. Bosh, Iron Golem
  3. Dakkon Blackblade
  4. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails
  5. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
  6. Higure, the Still Wind
  7. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
  8. Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
  9. Karona, False God
  10. Kresh the Bloodbraided
  11. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
  12. Malfegor
  13. Maralen of the Mornsong
  14. Mayael the Anima
  15. Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

So now figure out which ones are most likely to fit into Tefiri's Past/Lore. Still say Sidar is most likely, But Jaya as another creature card could be possible I suppose.

Futuremonk on Untrue Colors

Thanks!

Definitely some good color hate in green (e.g., Veil of Summer). Animar would be sweet, and it would be fun to surprise people that it wasn't a morph deck. Definitely would hurt the budget goal though. I thought about Jeskai, too, since white can get you cards like Story Circle and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails.

My thought is that blue is pretty much essential to this archetype, but other colors are optional. I've ordered the cards I need, so it will be one of the first decks I play once it's safe to play Magic with friends again.

While Jori En isn't very flashy, and there are other Izzet commanders that might even be more on-theme, the card draw is important. With all the janky color change spells, I wasn't able to include as much draw as I would have wanted, so having a source on a cheap commander will be important to keeping the deck going.

Based on Eight-and-a-Half-Tails:

The Nine-Tailed Fox

Legendary Planeswalker - Tails

The Nine=Tailed Fox has protection from white.

+1: Until your next turn, either permanents you don't control, or spells you don't control become white.

-3: Exile target nonwhite permanent.

-9: You get an emblem with "You and permanents you control have protection from white." and ": Target spell or permanent becomes white until end of turn."

I'd like a common artifact enchantment.

Commander_Olim on Daxos, Blessed by Kitsune

This is great but... why not Eight-and-a-Half-Tails as Commander?

DerektheRed on Balan, one-punch man

A few suggestions - food for thought.

Kismet > Imposing Sovereign. It's higher CMC so it doesn't come out as fast, but it's also harder to remove. Does more work / better late game draw.

Conqueror's Flail is great. Redundant with Grand Abolisher and harder to remove.

Kusari-Gama is awesome in voltron decks; puts the defending player in a bind - chump block and lose all their creatures, or don't block and lose the game... (For this or the flail, I'd prob remove Golem Gauntlets. By the time you have enough equipment out for it to matter, Balan will already be a 1-shot.)

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails. Mono-white staple. So good.

berryjon on Why White? Design Choices

In my experience, is a Force Multiplier. It makes other colours better, but by itself it has serious gaps that can be exploited by the opponents easily. So in multi-colored decks, it provides much needed utility and redundancy, but those same factors aren't present when there is no other colour to bounce off of.

This, of course, said by the guy currently tweaking a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck.
