ToolmasterOfBrainerd or.......... you build a jeskai twin deck that both plays Teferi, Time Raveler and Splinter Twin combo in the same deck shell. That has the same or similar amount of tools (it also would be playing Force of Negation probably) as U/W control with the big differences of having a combo pieces build in and mana bases.
It would be the same problem as before where a deck that could play twin WOULD play twin because of the rewards and tools given outweighs the deck building restrictions put upon it. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is a great card but if given the option of building around him or Splinter Twin 9/10 times you're picking twin because of the combo aspect alone.
I understand your reasoning behind it and I somewhat agree but I've seen this song and dance too many times before and the general meta, to me, hasn't changed enough that could change the basis of the general public not saying "just play twin". Phoenix decks are a pain but I just believe that twin is a whole different animal that morphs the entire format as a whole. Albeit it's not super degenerate to play against like Birthing Pod or Eye of Ugin it's still has a unhealthy effect on the format.

If by chance you're looking for a win-condition that doesn't use the graveyard or artifacts I'd recommend: Felidar Guardian + Flameshadow Conjuring . Cast Flameshadow first, then Felidar, always order ETB triggers so that Felidar's resolves first then Flameshadow. Felidar blinks any red source be it a Mountain , Badlands , or Commander's Sphere which effectively untaps it to pay for Flameshadow's ETB. This creates a hasty token for free that won't trigger Flameshadow again, so you'll always have the token Felidar blink the original Felidar which continues the cycle until you have infinite hasty cats to attack with. I consider this combo more durable than the Splinter Twin variant and easier on the mana base than the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker variant. If someone removes the cat before you can go infinite you can always reset the combo with Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , or Necromancy reanimating the cat. This is a pretty easy combo to win with when your opponents are hiding behind their Planar Void 's and Stony Silence 's thinking they're safe.

Yeah, I knew Bridge from Below was on it's way to the ban hammer. Really just a matter of time honestly because it's just one of those cards that has always been on the fringe of possibly being broken. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis & Altar of Dementia just pushed it over the edge in my opinion.
After seeing cards like Bloodbraid Elf and Jace, the Mind Sculptor in action in a this modern "cycle" I feel comfortable saying that I like to see Stoneforge Mystic be unbanned now. Something I was VERY NOT inclined on a couple years ago perhaps but now I can see where SFM would fit in. I would be good and maybe cross fingers slow down the format a little but it wouldn't "break" it. If jace and BBE couldn't then I'm sure SFM can't neither.
I just don't want to see Splinter Twin again because it's not because it's too strong or busted...... it's because every control deck conceivable eventually morphs into a twin deck and makes the format super redundant, hurting the diversity in decks(particularly control decks) and kills any type of suspense to the meta. Games against twin are fun.......having 1/3 of the field be a twin deck isn't just because it's the "de facto control deck".

What I want to happen, (probably not what is going to happen) is
Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis -Banned
Splinter Twin -Unbanned (so people will stop complaining ;)
Ban on Faithless would be Okay, but not at the top of my list.
And you know, maybe an egg to annoy Tron?

I can most definitely see Stoneforge Mystic being unbanned. I’ve got no clue why they keep avoiding an unban. If they do, I don’t think a Umezawa's Jitte unban would be wise. We wanna make fair decks better, and Jitte makes combat really unfun.
As for the Hogaak deck running around, I feel like too many people are clamoring for multiple cards to be banned from it (which is a bit much, imo) for WotC to ignore. The main reason for this is that the deck is waaay more resilient to hate than Dredge has ever been. The fact that 2 Surgical Extraction on key pieces of the deck usually isn’t enough is insane, and the Hogaak player’s sideboard is dedicated to fighting through hate.
Admittedly, I’d really like one of two things to happen:
-we get a sweeping ban that hits multiple decks. I’m talking a ban on Stirrings, Looting, and Bridge from Below . Make the upcoming Mythic Championship something more interesting than Hogaak mirrors all day.
-we get a massive, sweeping unban. If people don’t want to lose their busted digging spells, then give the blue decks their own. Unban Preordain or Ponder . Or both, why the heck not? Obviously SFM would be my biggest hope but I don’t feel like they’d do that without giving us a reprint first because that’d be an easy $100 card. Splinter Twin could be fine. Finally, a card I think would be interesting to see back would be Seething Song . It’s not like Storm’s even Tier 2 at this point; while people play it for nostalgia, it doesn’t do well anymore. Song would give it the boost it needs, and it could also spawn some new archetypes, like bigger All-In red. This would be my preferred course of action, but I am insane, so take that with a grain of salt. :)

You are also running Splinter Twin , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Twinflame so could think of including Teferi's Realm . Idk if keeping spare tokens after phasing out after combat is too cute, but it does keep things off the board to sorcery speed removal as well. Finally, maybe include a Stifle or similar effect. Nothing better than blanking an opponents fetch, or and this is real spicy hitting the storm trigger that adds the copies to the stack. Combo taps out to tendrils you and you just get drained by the one copy. I don’t think it’s so low in utility that this scenario is Christmas land. Nothing there that will break the budget too badly.
