Ribbons of the Reikai Discussion

Eurgiga on Moon art cards for Princess ...

A few I haven't seen yet:

Couple tips when looking for moons: Both actual moons and moon symbols count, so keep an eye out for moons on things like books, texts, and manufactured things in the art. There is no limit on how small they can be, though it's obvious it has to be large enough to make out. Some cards have very small, very sneaky moons hidden in them this way.

I came across this deck and thought it would be fun to play: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/4-color-pauper-spirits-yes-this-is-a-deck/

I'm just not sure about the intricacies of the splice mechanic. If I splice Spiritual Visit onto Ribbons of the Reikai, do I get an extra card from the spirit token created by Spiritual Visit's effect?

Add: Bident of Thassa, Goblin Spymaster, Kindred Boon, Kindred Discovery, Blinking Spirit, Ashnod's Altar, Drift of Phantasms, Patriarch's Bidding, Karmic Guide, Birthing Pod, Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens, Distant Melody, Decree of Pain, Blasphemous Act, Wrath of God, Final Judgment, Descendants' Path

Drop: Drogskol Reaver, Fumiko the Lowblood, He Who Hungers, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Petalmane Baku, Promised Kannushi, Glacial Ray, Baku Altar, Long-Forgotten Gohei

Honestly the whole arcane interplay plan may need to go, unfortunately. Compare Ribbons of the Reikai to Distant Melody or even Shamanic Revelation. Splice is such an awkward and unreliable mechanic that unless the card is excellent even without it (like Through the Breach) it's not worth trying to make it work.

Lightform and Cloudform are interesting, since if you exile the morphed creature with Brago's ability they will flip, allowing you to play expensive creatures more cheaply. Other ways to make your spells cheaper are Urza's Incubator and Semblance Anvil. Skeleton Key is probably not as good as Invisibility, although if you want the card draw use Bident of Thassa or Mask of Memory. Working with Brago's ability, you could try Sandsteppe Outcast or Belfry Spirit for more tokens. Spirit Bonds might work. Maybe. Things that should probably go: Ribbons of the Reikai, Mycosynth Wellspring, Phantom Flock, Rally the Ancestors, Act of Authority, Well of Ideas. All of these could work, but they're too circumstantial or high-costing.
