Splinter Twin Discussion
6 days ago
@ BMHKain if I was you I would start from scratch. And look at modern decks in the red a white colors including banned from modern cards like Splinter Twin and make a deck around that idea. Because it works in modern.

I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.
Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.
I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

(3 cards to go.)
I still dunno if many Fireball-Esque spells is a good idea to me. If you can tell me how stuff like Fault Line, Rolling Earthquake, & even Earthquake is good as a wincon, let me know right away, landofMordor. Besides, I had to remove Splinter Twin, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, & even Suppression Field just to make things work. I might even have to add back Terrain Generator unless you have a better idea for Land 35, raising the target amount to 4 left. I don't suppose you have any suggestions for cuts, landofMordor? I'd really appreciate at least 4. Please respond soon.

Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.
Question: Are the following cards good?
Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)
Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)
Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)
Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

@ Chasmolinker, Thanks! Spellskite hasn't really seen that much modern play after the Splinter Twin ban a pretty long time ago, but it still has a lot of uses, like protecting the important cards in this deck as you said.
Feel free to "borrow" anything from my primers! I only get my backgrounds like this because I just went and viewed some page sources on other primes and tried to improve from there. If you are looking for some inspiration, be sure to check out my UW Spirit primer, I personally consider it to be my best primer in terms of formatting and visual appeal.

How do you want to build it, assuming you don't want a Splinter Twin combo list or storm list, there are very few other competitive Kess decks.
There is one more that is still very powerful, which is a Kess turns deck. This taking turns build can be extremely powerful deck. Below is a decent example:

SynergyBuild, My playgroup is around a 6-7 range on the competitive scale and would like to make it as competitive as possible for this playgroup and we already have a Kess storm deck. I personally don't like Splinter Twin or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

I've managed to scrounge around and put this deck together in paper. Here's what I've seen so far in the games I've played...
Planar Chaos is a bit hit and miss. It did counter a commander once and missed on a Farseek. I lost it on my turn at my first upkeep. Worth some more testing but I think it's not going to be good long term for this deck to have it.
Yisan and Great Oak Guardian deserve mention because I was able to combo off through a counter spell heavy cEDH tournament table with just Yisan on the field. I've found it to be a great include to fight through permission decks.
As for Great Oak Guardian specifically, it's worked beautifully. I've worked out the math to have my deck combo off of just Imperial Recruiter. Here's the line:
The above line has worked wonders.
Splinter Twin has also been a nice backup at times to Kiki-Jiki. But another unsung hero has been Genesis. At 3 mana, Genesis has been able to get Ramunap Excavator which has let me get back on my feet rather quickly.
