Shane.Allen: I win about 60% of the games I play.
Deck's I play against regularly:
Kess, dissident mage storm
Arcum Dagsson combo
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon infect Voltron
Narset, Enlightened Master voltron
Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind wheel and deal.
So I'm always on my toes trying to stay competitive.

Hi, fellow sen triplets player!
Here are some suggestions for your deck:
Sen Triplets draw so much hate that I'd advise you to put Winding Canyons in. This way you can flash the triplets in at the end of your opponents turn, so they don't have to survive one whole turn cause they almost never do
I do not play Mycosynth Lattice and Celestial Dawn because they take up two card slots. Instead I built my landbase in a way that it can produce two or three mana of any color more or less reliably in the lategame (with City of Brass, Rupture Spire, etc.)
I made the experience that Telepathy draws a lot of hate, too. People hate it to play with their hands revealed for the whole time. It creates an unpleasant game experience and often makes you a target. Instead I'd recommend Glasses of Urza. It does not make all of your opponents angry at you and additionaly it can be searched with Trinket Mage which makes your deck more consistent. And it can be searched with Tezzeret the Seeker whom you should add as well
That's all for now. Let me know what you think!

Where's Grand Arbiter Augustin IV? He'd be boss in this deck to both slow people down and ramp you.
You have a Nazahn deck too? Excellent, we have similar tastes in EDH decks, I have one as well. I'll have more suggestions/ideas in the near future, keep rocking :)

Hi, I have some remarks on your card choices:
Brave the Sands: Why is this card in here? Do the sphinxes benefit particularly well from vigilance? Blocking additional creatures also does not seem that relevant. Barring the missing use for this in EDH this card is not ideal in a deck where nearly all creatures cost 5 mana or more because most of the time you will not have many creatures on board that can benefit from the enchantment.
Whispering Madness: This card is good in decks that empty their hands faster than the opponents. Your deck is a control deck with sweepers and it has many costly sphinxes in it. That's why most of the time you will be the one with the most cards in hand, so that you won't benefit from Whispering Madness.
Athreos, God of Passage: I don't like this card because in EDH most of the opponents will just pay the life without hesitation. It would only start to hurt your opponents if you would play even more creatures and some recursion engines. But, again, in a deck with so many expensive creatures, this card will not have much impact.
the three leylines seem out of place. Why are they all in there? I see that flash is good in a lot of situations. But Rest in Peace is a better than Leyline of the Void in EDH and why do you need to give yourself hexproof? This seems like a wasted cardslot.
In general I do not see the benefit from playing strict sphinxes tribal apart from flavor. They do not have many tribal synergies, which is underpinned by the fact that Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign, Urza's Incubator and Belbe's Portal are the only tribal cards in your deck. Maybe you could degrade the sphinxes to a subtheme of the deck. Cut some of them and replace them by cards like Grand Arbiter Augustin IV (reduces the cost of some of your sphinxes and your commander by 2), Baleful Strix (very strong, even stronger in this deck), Solemn Simulacrum (good ramp in your colors and an artifact). You could also play Sphinx of Uthuun as it is Fact or Fiction on a stick.
That's all. Let me know what you think

I also have to recommend Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Teferi's Protection! It also looks like you have a lot going on when it comes to the themes of your deck. If you want to focus on control focus on control and ditch the aggro or mill you have going on to make the deck more consistent.

@brandonsperry25: I personally have no experience with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV as a commander or with playing stax decks in general. But incidentally I just discovered a very expensive Grand Arbiter Augustin IV build today, that also seems to be really cool: Augustin's $t4ks. Maybe you can find some inspiration there nonetheless.
I built my Sen Triplets deck based on the desire to play a handcontrol deck in EDH and it just turned out that the deck had to be esper for this, so I chose the triplets as my commander. It was private until now, but I'll make it public for you. Not sure wheather you'll find something for your Augustin deck there though.
