Splinter Twin Discussion

LeonDaniels on "Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice" [Primer]

It's not mentioned in the primer (or perhaps I just missed it) but Splinter Twin + Zealous Conscripts also goes infinite: - Enchant Zealous Conscripts with Twin - Tap the Conscripts making a copy of itself - Target the original with the copy, untapping it - Rinse and repeat 3^^^^6 times - Kill everyone. Also important to note that this can happen in the same turn that the conscripts are played because their ETB can target themselves, so if you happen to have floating around you can win that turn.

Yeah I've loved the idea of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ever since Splinter Twin , and obviously since it came out in champions itself. I've just been too obsessed with this deck since Collected Company came out. I've been so loyal I still have both Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Anafenza, the Foremost ! Lol. In regards to Cabal Therapist , it was a tough choice. Cabal Therapy is one of my favorite cards / combo catalysts in legacy. So to see it printed on a stick in modern was a dream come true. But now the deck is so tight knit and everything in it is basically a game winning piece, the only ones that have stuck around that arent winners are the Ranger-Captain of Eos and the Murderous Rider . The captain can search for Walking Ballista for Heliod, Sun-Crowned or Devoted Druid , and can save a few creatures on my side by sacking it during my opponents upkeep. Murderous Rider sticks around as my only form of true interaction besides Walking Ballista and Murderous Redcap . It was a tough choice, but the weakest link.

Boza on Artifact Combo deck - any ...

The only "combo" I see is the ability to untap the artifact cards multiple times like Steel Overseer .

This is not very powerful I think and is too reliant on a single card. Here are the rules for this tournament.

Rules - 2 Mythic, - 4 Rare, - 8 Uncommon, - can sub Mythic for Rare eg: 0 mythic & 6 rare, - 4 copies max, - 60 card min, - 15 card sideboard, - all cards (except those in your sideboard) must be drawn from within the span of 8 consecutive standard released sets and must have been legal in standard at that time.

If you are looking for combo ideas, Splinter Twin and Deceiver Exarch were in the same standard together, so it is an option that will only take 4 rares and 4 uncommons, filling the rest of the slots with whatever. This gives you New Pryrexia, Mirrodin Besieged, Scars of mirrodin and Rise of the Eldrazi (4 sets) to work with. The next sets are Innistrad block and Return to Ravnica (not counting core sets), which give you a ton of powerful cards in blue-red to work with. The rest of the cards can easily be a swath of control cards that were available in those sets.

I don't play favorites with my combos in this deck because that would lead to a much higher degree of repetition, and that would make games less fun for everyone involved.

That said, the basic thing to look for is the ability to untap things. If you have repeatable untap, you've probably got a win.


  • Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker made into an artifact via Mycosynth Lattice or Liquimetal Coating , any sac outlet, and Dross Scorpion . This is basically Kiki/Conscripts. You use Kiki to copy the Scorpion, then sac the copy for two untap triggers. Aim both untaps at Kiki, activating him in between to get two more Scorpions. Each time you sacrifice a Scorpion, if you had 'X' scorpions, you end up with (2x-1). Infinite Scorpions to attack with.
  • Dross Scorpion enchanted with Splinter Twin does the same thing as above
  • Any sac outlet plus Dross Scorpion in play. Wurmcoil Engine enchanted with Splinter Twin. Tap Engine to make a copy, then sac the copy and the resultant tokens to get three untap triggers that you point all of at the Engine. Infinite Wurmcoil Engines. (never done this one - it just occurred to me)
  • Myr Battlesphere enchanted with Splinter Twin. Untap provided by either one of the following: Dross Scorpion and a sac outlet **OR** Clock of Omens

@kalka: Past in Flames is here for gy recursion. you know, it's been here since the conception of this deck and back then, it used to have more cards that would synergise with PiF. now that you've mentioned it, I think that's a card I need to reconsider, given the current list, so thanks for pointing it out. The sharpshooter idea is interesting but it does seem to need either a sac outlet or, as RylandL pointed out, Splinter Twin / kiki-jiki. Kiki is in this list but the other combo pieces (village and resto angel) have better synergy with the deck than sharpshooter.

Regarding the untap spells, I run Village Bell-Ringer but I see where you trying to go here: if we play enough mana dorks, we can use untap as a ritual. This is an interesting idea but I don't think we can reliable net mana with it. Of course, they also work with Earthcraft but if you can resolve earthcraft, you don't really need anything else. did you have something else in mind? maybe in missing an interaction... I know about the interaction with Yisan but he's not the commander here, so it seems ill-advised to add cards solely to interact with something that we cannot cast reliably.

@RylandL: I've never thought about that interaction before. So, as long as you can trigger a kill with 2 or more sharpshooters on the battlefield, it can indeed go infinite on its own.

I've been trying to make Hulk work in naya but I'm reaching the same conclusion about the lack and reliability of sac outlets. Yisan is a card that keeps coming to mind. I used to play it when I first put this list together and then removed it afterwards, and then added it again a few times here and there... but I ended up removing it from the list because it was too slow. As you know, it's very different to run Yisan as a commander vs. as part of the 99 and in my experience, unless your deck also happens to do the same thing that an Yisan deck does, the card is just too slow to make the cut. Basically, you need to be able to tap it more than once per turn or you shouldn't play it at all.

In my last review, I mentioned Incubation Druid as a card I considered adding to the list but my opinion is that it's just a worse version of Bloom Tender . I feel the elder you mentioned falls into the same category as incubation druid.

If you have a permanent version of your Marath list on tappedout, please let me know, so I can refer to it in the deck description. I like the way you think about edh.

RylandL on Competitive Marath (GRW, Naya combo)

Goblin Sharpshooter enchanted with Splinter Twin is also an infinite kill on the spot. People don't believe me, but I did it once. You tap the original to make a token, use the token to ping a mana dork of your own or an opponents. Both untap. Use the original to make a a third token. Use the second token to deal 1 damage to an opponent. Use the third token to ping itself and kill it, un tapping the other two. Rinse and repeat. :) lol

I've also updated my list. Hulk isn't too reliable in Marath. Not enough sac outlets, or even cadd advantage in Naya. So I went another route. I instead tried to focus the deck around creating infinite mana using creatures, and just adding in more creature tutors. Most notably, Yisan. I also realized that Faeburrow Elder is a great card in Marath, and can be double versed in with Yisan which is good.
