Article at a Glance

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on Fable of the Mirror-Breaker‘s impressive showing at the Neon Dynasty Championship. I argued that the card’s tournament performance in Alchemy and Historic would translate to increased play in Standard and Pioneer and that Fable of the Mirror-Breaker would increase in price accordingly. The card was less than $0.50 at the time.

Since my last article, all versions of Fable of the Mirror-Breaker rose in price. Players are now experimenting with the new Kiki-Jiki in multiple Magic: the Gathering formats which I’ll showcase in this article.

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker & Reflection of Kiki-Jiki

The regular art Fable of the Mirror-Breaker rose an astounding 600% in price, jumping from $0.50 to $3.50. The extended border version is now $4.00-$5.00. And the showcase Fable is about $6.00.

Kiki Brews in Standard

In Standard, the Saga-half of Fable of the Mirror-Breaker is a total value engine. Plus, there are plenty of good options to copy with Reflection of Kiki-Jiki.

Rakdos Midrange

If you use Reflection of Kiki-Jiki to copy Tainted Adversary, you can pump your extra mana into the token Tainted Adversary to make hoards of Zombies.

You can also make copies of Bloodtithe Harvester and sacrifice them to kill your opponent’s creatures.

Grixis Control

This deck plays an entirely different set of creatures that you can copy with Reflection of Kiki-Jiki. Notable targets include Graveyard Trespasser, Goldspan Dragon, and Hullbreaker Horror.

Temur Midrange

Playing Fable of the Mirror-Breaker in a green deck gives you access to Esika’s Chariot which can make additional copies of the Goblin Shaman token that Fable makes with its first chapter. Chariot can even make permanent copies of the tokens made by Reflection of Kiki-Jiki, making extra Goldspan Dragons or Tovolar’s Huntmasters.

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Pioneer Decks

With access to Pioneer’s larger card pool, even more Fable of the Mirror-Breaker strategies emerge.

Mardu Greasefang

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker’s ability to rummage (discard and draw cards) is perfect for reanimation strategies. This deck aims to discard Parhelion II and put it back into play with Greasefang, Okiba Boss.

4-Color Fires of Invention

This deck aims to make creature tokens and Transmogrify them into Agent of Treachery. Fable makes an outstanding token that you can use to produce Treasure tokens before turning it into Agent. In addition, Reflection of Kiki-Jiki can make additional copies of Agent to steal your opponent’s permanents and close out the game.
