What kind of capacitors for use in a Solid-State Tesla Coil?

Hi, i am currently building my own Solid State Tesla Coil (SSTC), and i want to know what kind of capacitors are the best for SSTC use. I have much experience with spark-gap type Tesla Coils, and i have used beer bottle capacitors, but i want to know if i should use poly-film, HV Caps, or what. Please help!

most important is high voltage breakdown rating

the old glass "Lyden jars" worked well because they were limited by by air ionization at the cap
they also had very low C values in micro-micro range

BE VERY CAREFUL with High voltage and high Capacity
do the energy storage and max amp out calculations
If you store many Joules it can be LETHAL
