Isperia the Inscrutable Discussion

I rin it in my Isperia the Inscrutable deck that only has Azor as a 99 card, but my commander can tutor him, so yeah.

Hi! Fun deck!

Favorable Winds and Isperia the Inscrutable are great for flying tribal! Isperia has insane synergy with your commander.

Medomai the Ageless and Azor, the Lawbringer are just good flying creatures.

Hope these help! Good luck!

As the title says, looking for commander alters. My commanders include: Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Isperia the Inscrutable, Selenia, Dark Angel and Surrak Dragonclaw but iffy on him so not a priority.

If you have previously done any of the aforementioned and have examples, I'd love to see. Or if not and have an idea let me know. Don't have much in the way of cards but can pay if reasonable.

Note: not interested in anime/cartoon alters. Also probably should mention... North of the border if it makes a difference.

I'm guessing he's playing Commander, and can only use the colors Isperia the Inscrutable identifies as.

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.

There's a lot of interaction in all colors but Blue and White have the most. Isperia the Inscrutable could be a fun choice in those colors. Use double strike and Peek effects to guarantee that you guess right and then find big flying creatures. Maybe have a sphinx tribal sub theme and have Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign be your first tutor target.

I definitely second the Isperia the Inscrutable recommendation after looking at

Steelspike on Best commander for...

Isperia the Inscrutable or Nebuchadnezzar seem like the most logical commanders for Glasses of Urza.

But, those commanders not withstanding, I would say anything that says "name a card", like Pithing Needle or that Phyrexian can't think of what it's called, but "the named card can't be played".

Or, any deck that you want to make sure the blue player doesn't have counter magic in hand to squash your plays.
