Consecrated Sphinx Discussion

Aaerys No problem!

Yes definitely keep the artifact synergy, honestly if you don't like the combo approach and want to go for the more interaction routes with fun things to play (like playing with other people's deck ;3) than I would suggest more protection, counterspells, artifact synergy, card draw, as well as interaction.

Here is a list of some additional cards that I found useful and within the $20 or less range.




Ghostly Prison

Aura of Silence

Damping Sphere

Collective Restraint

Phyrexian Revoker

Ethersworn Canonist

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Venser, Shaper Savant

These cards will make opponents less likely to hit you, or will at least slow them down enough for you to interact with them.


Mana Leak


Muddle the Mixture

Stoic Rebuttal


Spell Pierce

Arcane Denial

A couple more useful counters, best one I like to use for Sen Triplets is cards like Remand, Muddle (because the 2 cmc transmute comes in clutch), and Arcane Denial as it gives more options to choose from their hand.


Shimmer Myr

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage

Trophy Mage

Crystal Shard


Strionic Resonator

Voltaic Key

Paradox Engine

Aetherflux Reservoir

Academy Ruins

Shimmer Myr and Raff Capashen are honestly auto include in my opinion, giving the ability to flash in your commander and not waiting to wait one whole turn before her upkeep effect is amazing, it also allows us to hold up mana to interact with other players before deciding what we can do. The curve is also great since Shimmer Myr is 3 cmc and Raff is 4 cmc, we can hold mana for our counterspells and interactions and if the coast is clear flash in Sen. Trophy Mage is for the redundancy that you have more than a likely chance of tutoring your Shimmer Myr or Crystal Shard (Shard always makes sure that your opponent will be reluctant to tap out and thus preventing them to cast more creature spells). Voltaic Key is there just for more fun shenanigans, I always like having them in these type of artifact decks. Academy Ruins is a card I would highly recommend investing into, it saves your artifacts, it allows recursion, and if the case where Sen dies, you won't have to consistently pay the tax for it with this card on the field.

On another note Paradox Engine is a powerful card, it allows you to gain extreme amount of value, hence the reason you would want to include more mana rocks into the deck. I added Aetherflux into list in the case you want to close out a game, since you are running Isochron Scepter already, adding in Dramatic Reversal will be your win con and also allows you to net infinite mana and play your opponents hand if you so would choose. The playstyle is all there for you to choose ;3

Card Draw:

Mystic Remora

Sphinx's Revelation


Notion Thief

Consecrated Sphinx

Time Warp

Some choice cards I like to use, Notion Thief is there for them really sneaky plays when there is a mass Windfall or if someone taps out for a burst draw. Sphinx is a high power card engine. The time warp is there for just pure value.


Anguished Unmaking



Into the Roil


Toxic Deluge

Return to Dust

Dark Petition

Forsake the Worldly

Dramatic Reversal

Tower of the Magistrate

Some notable cards are like Snap, which untaps your land and bounces the creature back to their hand, pure value if its your turn next as now you will be able to cast that creature as well! Capsize is also a deadly card, as you can bounce their land and then play the land you bounced on your turn with Sen on the field, buyback is also killer (I have people scooped many times when I used this trick 1v1). Tower of Magistrate is really interesting against other people playing with artifacts (This auto de-quips voltron commanders!). A lot of these spells can also be copied on to Isochron Scepter making them extremely useful for you to control your opponent and allowing them what spells they can play, bouncing the spells you want to play from their deck, and removing the cards you don't like.


Thought Vessel

One more card which is a great mana rock.

Hopefully this gives you a better idea of a Control Sen Triplets shell, I think you can tell that this was one of my favorite decks before I retired her ;P

Einfach mal ein paar Ideen

Leveler für Laboratory Maniac + einmal karten ziehen Spellbook

Cryptoplasm Dominate etwas billiger, als die teuren copy spells

Mind Unbound

um den commander mehr zu nutzen vllt, Paradox Engine + billige spells wie Ponder +High Tide oder infinite mana wäre lit

Ich glaube du brauchst Mana... Solemn Simulacrum immer gut. ich weiß nicht ob die Kreaturen und das auf die Hand geben gut ist vielleicht sind richtige boardwhipes besser und du schützt dich mit günstigeren removal spells Paradox Engine und dein CMDR geben dir die Karten. Propaganda immer gut: Skullclamp

Mana Solemn Simulacrum Everflowing Chalice Dreamscape Artist hast ja die Karten High Tide

Consecrated Sphinx vllt für eine der Kreaturen Temple Bell + Consecrated Sphinx

Paradox engine und Consecrated Sphinx kosten glaub ich was...

Is Arcane Denial worth playing over Negate? Consider how both it and Edric, Spymaster of Trest have synergy with Consecrated Sphinx.

Removed Consecrated Sphinx and replaced with Kitchen Finks to continue to lower the overall curve.
