Consecrated Sphinx Discussion

Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer

22 hours ago

TheRedGoat, thanks for all the sugetions!

I used to run Sangromancer, but it was easily removed. I use Exquisite Blood instead now. Notice that I do not run Sanguine Bond for combo, EB is here only for defence. I may try Crumbling Sanctuary and see if it is worth the risk.

Geth's Grimoire is a strong card in Nekusar. In the late game it will be almost a wincon, since you'll be able to chain any wheels you have for a insane amount of damage. Consecrated Sphinx also works.

I'm not sure about some of the words.

  • I have a stack doubt about Words of Waste. If I cast a wheel, in response pay the word cost, the word resolves first, then the wheel. When the wheel resolves, will everybody discard the hand, draw a new one and only after this the word's ability go the stack and my opponents will lose their hands? If that's the interaction, I REALLY love this.

  • Words of Wind says "each player", right? So it affects me...I don't like this.

  • Words of War deals damage only to one player. I prefer something more "global".

Faith of the Devoted and Drake Haven will cost me a lot of mana, I think I have another cards in the deck to use this amount of mana and have better results. Besides, I REALLY like my combos! 8D

The_Fallen_Duke on A Self-Mill Deck

I want to try to remove the red to make the mana base more uniform and see how it works. I also added Consecrated Sphinx, as it is a heavier hitter that allows me to draw even more cards.Also, following previous suggestion I decided for a 3-3 ration Leveler + Laboratory Maniac.

I'd really like to try out a Jhoira deck some time. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to play.

Arcanis the Omnipotent could be another good card draw option, along with Consecrated Sphinx.

Icbrgr on Make Mill Great Again

1 week ago

Psychic Possession + Teferi's Puzzle Box creates insane mill when combined with Jace's Erasure and or Sphinx's Tutelage... Jace's Archivist goes well with this as well im also fond of Thought Scour with that kind of mill engine set up..... bolstered with Consecrated Sphinx and utility from Reliquary Tower for the huge hane you will get....Urza's Mine/Urza's Power Plant/Urza's Tower are woth considering too because its easy to assemble with the puzzle box out.....Psychosis Crawler is nice SB tech for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn....Spell Burst/Condescend can be cute as well with Tron lands.

Hope you found this interesting/helpful

Ponder, Preordain, Brainstorm are 3 cards you should definitely consider for any blue deck to help you with card draw, you're going to need a Reliquary Tower too, for sure!

If you are ok with spending an extra few dollars, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a very good call, especially when 14 out of 16 creature cards you have give you more than one devotion, (12 give 2 and 2 give 3). Another good, yet expensive card I can recommend for you is Consecrated Sphinx, this allows you to have even more card draw which will be very good considering you can then always be threatening a counter to your opponent's spells which will make them scared to play some of their bigger cards.

In terms of max hand size, you already have Spellbook and Venser's Journal , but I would also recommend a Library of Leng as it stops you from having to discard if someone forces you to wheel, Nephalia Academy will also pull this off for you. I don't think a Jace, Unraveler of Secrets would be too bad in the deck either, if you get to ult him then the enemy has to burn cards for no reason other than to try play their other cards for the rest of the game and it can therefore almost secure your victory as they will run out of playable cards very quickly!

That's all I can think of for now, but I hope it will help you finish your deck list!

Consecrated Sphinx is op af

also Words of Wind is funneh in draw heavy

simic usually is best at passive or creature-based draws, passive being Rhystic Study and Sylvan Library, and creature based theres a shitload, from Yavimaya Elder to Momir Vig, Simic Visionary all the way to Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Prime Speaker Zegana, simic is after all a creature focused guild/color combo so its most practical use is stuff like Elvish Visionary, Survival of the Fittest or Birthing Pod,

if you're running heavy tribal such as merfolk or elves, Slate of Ancestry will win you games with a single activation most of the time since simic is very good at shitting out creatures like Avenger of Zendikar very early in games

multimedia on Eminence Necromancers (Budget)

1 week ago

Hey Kaslay, thanks for all your interest and suggestions.

I like Thalakos Deceiver and I will consider adding it now that it's close to budget, $6 is still high though. Deceiver was $15 after a buyout when Inalla was first released. You're right it's amazing with eminence also bounce. Not sure what to cut for it though as I need to cut a card that's the same or more price.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur was just reprinted in Iconic Masters it's price has dropped from $20 to $8! It will continue to drop as more product is opened. Consecrated Sphinx was also reprinted and it's currently at $13 which will most likely drop more. Although not currently budget I'm still keeping my eye on both of these cards. You're right Jin is an amazing reanimation target, Sphinx is too even though they're not Wizards.

alright, not terrible reasoning. Why not replace Panharmonicon for Fabricate or Tezzeret the Seeker ? The first will tutor for all the artifacts, while the second can grab every artifact in your deck immediately except Paradox Engine. Tezzeret is much more powerful, since it puts the artifact directly into play and can also untap things like mana vault.

Courser of Kruphix pairs well with Oracle of Mul Daya and will keep those pesky lands off the top of your library. They're both already really powerful, but synergize with your commander amazingly.

Consecrated Sphinx could really use a spot (and a ban, in my opinion). Also, Trygon Predator is amazing. The only downside is you have to run both blue and green, but that's it. Same with Edric, Spymaster of Trest. That guy would net you all sorts of advantage from your tap-weenies. Teferi, Temporal Archmage is powerful and would synergize well.

Also, both Academy Ruins and Buried Ruin will keep your artifact win-cons out of the graveyard and I view Regrowth as an auto-include in decks that run green. Late game, it's almost a Demonic Tutor. In fact, I've Demonic Tutored for a Regrowth before...
