Eight-And-A-Half-Tails The most flexible card?

Ok first off i want to state that this is not a type 2 card it is intended for fun casual play.
The reason i chose to write a reveiw of this card is to show just how amazingly flexible this card is. This card can be used in almost any deck the following will show how he fits in to some decks.

Beatdown & Aggro: ok i know what your thinking hes 2/2 hes hardly alive already! but then again who said he was for fighting? His ability for beatdown lies in his ability to give protection from white. But how long do you play against mono white? probably not often, so When you run into this problem just use his other ability to make anything you want white. you know what that means? free hits with a big creature. Your face: opponets face

Combo: yup combo... use this fox to get tons of life by putting a couple pious kitsunes in the mix, however thats not much of a combo so let add a rune-tail kitsune acendant to make your creatures have infinite toughness once you get to 30 life. So if your thinking how am i supposed to get to 30 life? well with pious kitsune of course every upkeep put a devotion counter on pious kitsune after putting on the counter gain life equal to the amount of D. counters on pious kitsune, if you have out an eight-and-a-half-tails.Just by having him out you get east life. and you can have out 4 pious kitsunes at the same time each give more life. Rune-tail flips to rune-tails essence at 30 life, but stays if drop to 29 or lower. Yup combo...


Weenie & swarm: two mana cost with a great effect... with weenie every hit has to count so his effect lets you get free hits, throw in lifelink or the previous combo to make your weenie deck a force to be recond with. after all who wants to go up aginst a bunch of indestructible little creatures that can attack through creatures. your opponets face:

And last but in no way least, Control!: yup control so your opponet casts pyroclasm normally you would be freaking out (at least i would.), but you can make instants, sorcerys, and anythig else white as well s0 what if my opponet uses burn i've got a eight-and-a-half-tails! just tap your mana and tell your opposition no. opponets face: yay control!

So that shows you that just because he is only 2/2 he could possibly be the most flexible card in the game.


So if you have any idea for other uses of this card, or i forgot a deck type just comment. Tell me if you have a more flexible card or if you think you have a way of beating it other than countering it. yeah just wasted 30 minuites of my life as no one is probably going to comment. Oh and if you thow in indestructability in that combo i listed, then your opponet has to destroy indestructability before they can destroy your rune-tail's essence.



Thats it i suppose............................................................................................................

BTW, where is the half a tail? I only counted 8. What happened to the other tail anyway? How did he end up with half a tail? Did Drooling Ogre munch his tail? ^_^

I wonder if it would be good in any of my decks? I play elves, poison, rats, insects.

It would be awesome in poison, because your opponrt wants to block your attacks at all costs, but cant because their creatures are white, and youyget protection....

I never realized that! This guy is definitely going in my poison sliver deck.
