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:

Kess Turns Combo

Commander / EDH* Zadorrak

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.

Thanks' ATOMIC1258

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:

Imperial Recruiter --> Kiki-Jiki --> play Kiki and copy Recruiter --> Recruiter finds Fierce Empath --> Fierce Empath finds Great Oak Guardian.

The above line has worked wonders.

Also, dropping Xenagos prior to Obliterate or cycling Decree of Annihilation has spelled GG for opponents on more than one occasion. Xenagos helps to recover immensely.

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.

Thanks for your patience, all.

@Maizena - I thought a lot about Goblin Chainwhirler, but decided against it for now. Three mana is the part where it really needs an impact, and 1 to everything is good, but I have at least momentarily decided it isn't enough. I know he will be one that I revisit many times though (just like that stinkin' Grenzo, Havoc Raiser!). And Squee, the Immortal would be good if I could run Food Chain, but unfortunately mono-R doesn't have that...

@Bighimmy - I ran Extraplanar Lens in an earlier version of this deck, and 9 out of 10 times it would get Vandalblasted the turn I played it, setting me back significantly. Turn 3 Lens, exile one of my Mountains. In response it gets destroyed, making my turn 4 have only two mana (via remaining Mountains).

@AjTheCreator - Wheel of Fortune is arguably one of the most powerful draw effects in Magic. It lets you go through your deck faster than 99% of other draw cards/effects for a reasonable price, mana-wise. For this deck, it is used to refill our hands and dig out those combo pieces.

@hoyanader - I haven't got around to making any changes online, as my life has taken precedence and Magic (especially running my Tapped Out account) has been sorta put on hiatus...I am not done with Magic, however, nor am I done with this deck.

I have cut out a Mountain in favor of adding Splinter Twin. Twin lets us essentially have another copy of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker at our disposal, for one less mana. The only draw back being that Twin isn't tutorable with my goblin-tutors. That's the main change as for now, but I am keeping up with this deck and will eventually get around to adding/updating the cards online here.

Again everyone, thanks for your interest in my deck. I will continue to think and improve the deck as more cards come out. I am really looking forward to RTRTR (Guilds of Ravnica, haha) but I feel it will provide more for my Mizzix deck than this one...nonetheless, I will be adding anything I find efficient or powerful!

Artifacts and others:

Mimic Vat for now out to open up a slot for testing, but looking for a way back into the deck

Harrow I will try Cultivate now to see what I like best

Intruder Alarm great card, but not productive enough in this deck

Rhystic Study solid card, but trying a different approach for a similar result.

Splinter Twin I am a fan, but right now feels out of place

Crush of Tentacles, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Splinter Twin, and Feldon of the Third Path all seem like auto-includes if you can get your hands on them.

Playing Boros. I have Yosei, the Morning Star in play. I cast Splinter Twin on Yosei... the token will die to the legendary rule BEFORE it would be exiled, so therefore my opponent skips their turn, and I can tap 5 permanents. Then repeat, and repeat, etc... Correct??

one the point is to make it a draw not a win so both those combos are out

with garruk you turn him into a creature with either Enchanted Evening + Opalescence or March of the Machines + Mycosynth Lattice

then great a wolf token with the origonal

make a copy of him with Splinter Twin keep the token

then have the token fight the wolf putting him bellow the transform threshold which will fail to transform him due to the token not having a backside

at this point the ability will continue to trigger infinitly

also typing this up i realise it works better with Clever Impersonator skipping the need to turn him into a creature
