Artifact Creature — Sphinx
When Enigma Sphinx is put into your graveyard from the battlefield, put it into your library third from the top.
Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order.)

I dug up my old Sharuum deck last week so can give you a few pointers (our group banned infinite combos so none of that jank ;) )
Conjurer's Closet - Just plain Awesome! Should be in every Sharuum deck!
Tawnos's Coffin - So great at locking down opposing Commanders...reanimate with Sharuum and repeat.
Buried Ruin Because sometimes Sharuum can get real expensive to cast - you need a good Plan B.
Mana Vault - One of the best mana rocks, really Speeds up the deck.
Artificer's Intuition - Dump bombs in the yard to reanimate for later whilst searching for mana rocks to accelerate your early turns.
Umezawa's Jitte - Can be a game winner when combined with evasion...which you have in spades.
Fabricate - auto-include.
Windfall - Screws over other players while helping you get more targets for reanimation.
Indomitable Archangel - Shrouded Sphinxes win games!
Enigma Sphinx - Cascade on a stick...non-optional for Sphinx tribal...he's da bomb.
Isperia, Supreme Judge - More card draw and with 6 power he's a heavy hitter.
Exsanguinate - Late game this can be a real wincon.
Akroma's Memorial - So good and reanimating it will make your opponents weep tears of frustration.
Padeem, Consul of Innovation - Don't think about it, just add him in. Although if you really want card advantage nothing beats Phyrexian Arena...I'm even running Necrologia for extra card draw - you can never have enough.
Hope the above tips helps you out and may your Sphinxes always Fly High!

Ideally, of course, it'd be a Simic Spirit...since those don't exist, I might suggest Rashmi. She is INSANE value with minor deckbuilding concessions like Future Sight or Descendant of Soramaro (very in-theme here). And you can use instant-speed Arcane stuff to double the value on your opponent's turn.
As a random side note, last weekend my brother untapped with Rashmi and Future Sight up, and I had exactly one turn to avert disaster helming Oloro. In desperation, I played Enigma Sphinx...only to turn up Saheeli's Artistry...I was totally channeling the heart of the cards, I think.

This leaves you with 114 cards. Though I didn't really consider curve when I made these cuts so I don't know what will happen to that. Regardless, this would be my first pass at cuts.

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.
