Really love the deck. Just seems a shame that you can't get more use out of your commander. If it's only good to potentially kill something in combination with Kiki-Jiki or Splinter Twin then it's really a waste. Have you considered Child of Alara? Could be a decent reset button in case your opponents out-pace you. Or maybe Horde of Notions? He has 3 relevant keywords and can brink back elementals like Mulldrifter and Reveillark. Plus with him you could consider adding cards like Shriekmaw, Tyrant of Discord, AEthersnipe and Avenger of Zendikar who all have very relevant ETB triggers. And maybe Maelstrom Wanderer who can help you get more things on the field and give everything haste.

Cool, love the combo theme. I've been thinking of a combo deck myself, and you gave me a few more ideas!

It surprises me less than the idea that Wizards intentionally printed a Splinter Twin-esque combo in Standard but, especially after the recent bans, R&D really does seem to have been dropping the ball recently.

Boza First, you are contradicting yourself in your own arguments. How can you say that decks can still be broken even with very powerful hosers and then say that it doesn't matter what you do versus the deck because they have 2 cards in their entire deck that can answer your hate card? That's saying that something can still be powerful even with answers and then saying that something isn't powerful because it has answers. If you're on affinity your deck has way more answers to something like Stony Silence than cheeri0s to Chalice of the Void, and yet somehow Stony Silence is still a fantastic card against them. If you just have removal in your deck and hold it up, it is incredibly difficult to lose. Also, a ban on Mox Opal would destroy affinity, which is not actually that oppressive of a deck when you look at the meta. It's very interactive and skill-intensive, rewarding good play and heavily punishing those inexperienced with it. It takes up roughly 5% of the metagame. It is the only remaining pillar of the format. If we look at Wizards' ban decisions you can see why it is unlikely to be banned. Affinity cannot reliably win before turn 4, and cases where it does it is usually against decks that cannot interact with it (don't have removal). Affinity is not anywhere near metagame dominance unlike Splinter Twin (I don't agree with this ban at all but that was their reasoning). Affinity is not choking out other strategies. It doesn't have a large enough metagame share, nor does it have complete dominance over aggressive strategies. Eldrazi, which is a deck running 4 sol lands, has a higher metagame share. Death's Shadow decks are certainly more oppressive, and are still at a higher metagame percentage than affinity. Urzatron runs 3 lands that tap for 7 mana. SIMIAN SPIRIT GUIDE IS STILL LEGAL and that card is infinitely worse for the format. Control is finally in an okay place with the printing of Nahiri, the Harbinger and Fatal Push as well as vision's unbanning. The format is still struggling with its uninteractiveness. The place to stop that is not with affinity, and it's not with this bad cheeri0s deck. I am gonna steal what someone else said in this thread (srry). Remember lantern control and how it was thought to be broken and unstoppable and format warping when it won a GP? It's 2% of the metagame now.

I don't think that pair would have the right fit for me. I would be too intent on the journal or Aetherflux Reservoir being in play before I even think of playing the Glacial Chasm. Also, if Splinter Twin + Deceiver Exarch shows any indication of how often a two card combo actually happens in this deck, then they aren't likely to happen very often at all (I've only assembled the twin combo once).

Well I think this as broken as I can make it with out adding Hermit Druid. I have the Moltensteel Dragon Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon combo AKA Molter Skittles. Hellkite Charger Bear Umbra combo AKA Hover Bear. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Curiosity combo AKA Curios Mind.And last but not least... The Big Sho!! Kokusho, the Evening Star Splinter Twin Intruder AlarmAlso in raw bruit strength its just awesome
