Hello Calvin. I have over 17,000 capacitors. All are good for mmc's.
Here is A good example of what a nst would need for a mmc.
There is 63 of the MKP'S here.  Self-healing pulse duty construction with
low ESR.  Extremely low dissipation factor (tan delta).  For all pulse duty
applications even with high high frequencies. They are 400 volt at 0.47 uf.
That gives you a mmc rated at 25,200 volts and 0.007463 uf.
If you connect them all in series.
We purchased a truck full of misc pulse duty caps good for mmc building.
Lots of 1kv to 5 kv mica caps, and orange drop caps.
We have 5000 KNB1530,caps MKP type 275 VAC, 0.22uf. You could make a large
mmc with these.
