This MOS, representing tempered chains of the 21st harmonic, is the chromatic scale of Semisept/A-team and Vulture temperaments. The major problematic of approaching it from a traditional tonality point of view is that, at best, it partially misses syntonic root-third-fifth triads unless you are extremely generous with the definition of the category of a "third". However, it does hit the correct syntonic second and seventh, so that insofar as the major second/minor seventh is a consonance, stacks of it (occasionally mixed with the "minor third/major sixth") are typically the most consonant harmonies of the scale.
