Today’s Daily Deck is a White Life Gain Commander deck with Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant as General. Basically, the deck is built around the premise of gaining tonnes of life and getting buffs and stuff for having more life, and this is particularly effective in Commander with a starting life of 40. Take the general himself for example, he’s a 3-drop who transforms if you have 30 or more life (so unless your opponent can drop you by 11 in the first 2-3 turns, he’s coming out) into an enchantment that prevents all damage dealt to creatures you control, which not only prevents them from dying due to creature burn and combat damage, but also prevents things like lifelink. Other examples of this are Serra Ascendant, 1-drop 1/1 that gains +4/+4 and flying if your life is 30 or more (that’s right, a 5/5 flyer on your first turn), and Felidar Sovereign who is a 6-drop 4/6 with vigilance and lifelink that wins you the game at the beginning of your upkeep if your life is 40 or higher. Talk about some serious life gain, the deck is also filled with a lot of Life-gaining spells (creatures, enchantments, artifacts, you name it).
As always, let me know how I can improve the deck and have fun playing magic.
