Master Splicer Discussion

This looks good. I like a couple of things about it, first Shape Anew is a more reliable Polymorph effect, since you can actually run other creatures rather than tokens. Second, your deck, by design or by coincidence is immune to turn two Chalice of the Void for , which is a common play for those that use the Chalice.

Assuming that you go up to 24 lands (or 20 lands/4 birds, elves, or hierarchs), next thing is: curve.
4 Blade Splicer, since you most likely will get to have 3 mana (deck consistency - you want to have the best thing your deck can do happen as often as possible, and in this case the "best thing" is a first striking golem token as soon as you have 3 mana), and you want to be sure you have something to play. Wing Splicer and Vital Splicer seem like 2-ofs, Master Splicer like something you need 3 of. Maul Splicer... it's just so expensive. Maybe 1?
Oh, and Cloudshift should be a played as a full set. The card may contain some text, but that is rubbish. In your deck, it really reads: "Counter target removal spell, put a 3/3 golem token into play". No Precursor Golem to go with that, though (imagine what happens to all your tokens, if you Cloudshift a non-token golem).
You could also go for a SURPRISE! WINCON! by removing all artifacts from your deck, then adding a single (or two... to ensure you don't draw it by accident), huge golem, like Blightsteel Colossus, Darksteel Colossus, Mycosynth Golem, Sundering Titan, Platinum Emperion or something like that, and a bunch of Shape Anew. Sac tiny token, play huge golem, win game. An should that not work out, you still have an army of golem tokens.

I'd try and streamline your deck - cut down on your worse cards, and max out on your best ones. Awakened Amalgam, Golden Guardian Flip, Nature's Spiral, Reviving Melody, Wake the Reflections, Wildest Dreams, Intangible Virtue, New Horizons, Weirding Wood, Xenograft, and Ghirapur Orrery in particular don't seem that strong. Instead, I'd add some Birds of Paradise and/or Noble Hierarchs, and go all-in on your splicers. Max out on Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Wing Splicer, and maybe even add Precursor Golem and Distortion Strike as another user suggested. Removal is also always nice; and I'd add 4 copies of Path to Exile or Condemn, depending on your budget.

so i get the idea behind the deck but i don't see why Abzan Battle Priest is there. you have no way to activate him on other creature other them himself; as a disclaimer the +1+1 from Master Splicer is a anthem not a counter so it will not activate it. besides that a suggestion might be Eerie Interlude you can bounce all the guys that make golems and have them make more and re trigger Bygone Bishop. also this deck is not standard legal so as you said it was just for a friend group so you might want to put it under casual.

I would remove: Myth Realized-its slow and it really doesn't boost your existing creatures so to make full use you will have to equip to it. If you like the effect Scroll of the Masters is an artifact version that I think works better in this deck, Cathar's Shield-It just doesn't do enough for you, Servo Exhibition-its a one time use and servo's don't fly. I think you might be better off and might want to keep something similar if you can find it in an instant but as a sorcery its just not worth its place,Blade Splicer and Master Splicer-its just a creature. You are really trying to kill with a voltron strategy and you should be able to do that with akiri., Frogmite-just another creature. Granted it comes in for free but its only a 2/2, Leonin Elder-1 life per artifact isn't great. Especially if you are getting lifelink off creatures/equipment. Myr Mindservant I didn't see where you were running top of deck manipulation like Sensei's Divining Top so I dont' think you need it. Thraben Inspector-its a one drop that will get you a card. Not sure its really what you want. If you are looking for a one drop creature that might work well try Mother of Runes.Militant Inquisitor if you get to the point where you want him you've probably already lost the game. The other thing is you can cut down on the equipment but equipment choices are really about personal preference.
Remember its your deck and many of the choices should be based on who you play with.

A few cards you could consider for this deck Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter,Master of the Wild Hunt, Increasing Devotion, Sprout Swarm Don't underestimate this card seriously, Precursor Golem, Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Advent of the Wurm, Armada Wurm, Mimic Vat, and since you seem to have a lot of artifact and enchantment hate in your deck I assume it is a bit of a problem in your meta so perhaps you could try Nullmage Shepherd and Reclamation Sage.

Hey Force_of_Willb, I really appreciate the feedback.
I worked Blade Splicer into the mix which I had mentioned I wasn't sold on yet when I made the first draft of the deck. As for Master Splicer, I feel that there are better and more efficient anthem-type effects that already exist within the deck, and similarly for Vital Splicer since I would rather just grant all of the golems protection with a couple of mana rather than regenerating them for one per golem.
As for the other golems, I made room for Chronomaton since I don't really benefit from green mana dorks with the current draft of the deck, but as for the other creatures, as crazy as it may seem, they are simply out of my budget range right now. Of course if somebody else were building this deck or if I had more money I would include them in a heartbeat. Thanks again!
