Arbiter of the Ideal - Untaps cheats things into play (hits 70% of the deck)
Sandstone Oracle - ETB draw cards
Sphinx of Magosi - Activated ability draw cards
Belbe's Portal - cheat Sphinx's into play - good against other control decks
Sphinx of Jwar Isle - combos well with Conundrum Sphinx

Ooooh buddy. I have modern slivers, you may have tempted me to move her to commander. Brass Herald, Vanquisher's Banner, and the kindred cycle (Kindred Boon, Kindred Dominance, kindred charge , Kindred Boon and Kindred Summons) are all worth looking at. Four instant-ish game enders (one's a tutor, but you'll probably hit something hasty), and one gradual game-ender.

I love tribal, that's pretty much all I will play. I know its tough to stray from the theme, but I would add a Rhystic Study as card draw will probably be an issue. Or if life is really no problem, Necropotence.
As well, Patriarch's Bidding. You run the risk of someone playing Dragon tribal bringing back all of theirs too, but it would be nice after a board wipe.
And if you want to stay on Theme, you could also consider Changelings like Cairn Wanderer or Changeling Hero, as they would count as walls without Defender. Or the artifact anthem creatures like Brass Herald, Adaptive Automaton, or even Metallic Mimic if you are made of money :)
Love the idea of a wall deck, good luck with it.

So, I'm making a buy/trade list for an Esper Sphinx artifact deck. This list isn't including cards I already have, I'll add that as I go or as people suggest the cards I do have.
Basically, what I'm looking for is suggestions of cards to add or remove from this list.

A big ol' +1 for the wonderful theme deck! Always been a fan of Moonfolk.
To the issues you describe in the comments, I have the following suggestions:
- To better search up those essential artifacts, Trophy Mage will help her Trinket and Treasure brothers. She will get you your precious, precious Heartstone and another helpful card I'll suggest later. Tutoring for creatures will be a pain in blue no matter what, so rely on card draw as much as you can. I'd move away from big, single-use draw spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and instead focus on ability-based effects. You've got a fair number of Moonfolk Wizards; maybe Azami, Lady of Scrolls can be of service.
- When you're rockin' a deck as powerful as Moonfolk tribal, people start to get jelly. And when people be jelly, they blow up your stuff. But there's a Vedalken that can help protect your colorless stuff: Padeem, Consul of Innovation. For your creatures...I can't believe I'm about to suggest this... try Tortoise Formation. And when you're done laughing at my poor judgement, the best thing blue can do to prevent destruction is counter, so invest even more in that.
- Finally (and I'm so sorry this has turned into a long comment), I'd like to suggest making some changes to specific cards. Lay Bare isn't doing you any favors. Run literally anything else...okay not Fold into AEther, but other better counterspells. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Titan Forge and Lux Cannon just seem to be reasons for others to attack you. As they don't help the overall theme of the deck, I'd look to more relevant artifacts like Rings of Brighthearth, Eternity Vessel, Metallic Mimic, Brass Herald, or Door of Destinies.
