Information

Foreword: As other people have mentioned, you can probably tweak this deck in many ways to give it a better winrate, such as replacing the Mirror Images. It doesn't make it a better Caiphennadin deck though, it makes it a better Skycrag deck. You could replace half the cards here to give it a better winrate, but it would no longer be the fun deck that it is currently. The purpose of the deck is to have fun making copies of Caiphus and Kenna. There are plenty of other options if you just want to win as often as possible.

My variation of Kaelos' list. It's surprisingly good, performing better in ranked than the old Kennadins ever did. Caiphus actually improves this deck by giving it a good unit to cheat out other than Kenna, and it synergizes as well or better with End of Hostilities. Basically you don't need to wait for the enemy to play good units anymore, you can just play your own.

The fun factor is through the roof with Caiphus. He can do up to 20 damage the turn he's played (charge, berserk, double damage) and frequently gets either charge or aegis (37% to get one or the other), which greatly improves the control matchup.

How necessary is the ixtun merchant? I only have one copy of her meanwhile 4 of Jennev.
Ravager Edited Eternal Version: 1.40
Ixtun Merchant is key for reliably getting a Combustion Cell. With 4 Ixtun Merchants and 3 Combustion Cells in the deck, you're essentially running 7 copies of combustion cell.

I don't think the deck would work with Jennev Merchant. This is a very expensive deck, make no mistake about it, and it's not the best one out there. It's really meant as a fun deck if you have extra shiftstone.

Put in Poaching drakes over mirrors. Works great

Looks legit but 4 mirror image makes me think this is more of a meme deck?
PixelOrion Eternal Version: 1.39.0.5742
I definitely agree, poaching drake feels a lot better than mirror image. Currently, if you don't have anything out besides caiphus or kenna, you're kinda stuck mirror imaging merchant or grenadins... which just feels pretty bad.
Whiskerbro Edited Eternal Version: 1.40
mirror imaging a merchant isn't the worst thing ever, but I agree that the mirror image seems really bad here overall. I'd much rather just have 4 strategize to make things more consistent.

Ya. You've already got 4 end of hostilities, deck seems a lot better with like literally anything else in place of the mirror images

This list is beautiful. Maybe Caiphus is exactly what Kennadins needed to push it up the tier list but it's absolutely a blast to play regardless, even moreso than the OG version of the deck. It's easily my favorite deck/archetype in Eternal and to have it be more proactive, and rediculous, is just fantastic. 10/10

Glad to hear you're enjoying it!
