Magister Sphinx Discussion

Alright. As to what I would cut:
Utter End : It's a bit too little mana to be cheated out, yet too costly to be worth it.
Villainous Wealth : 'X' costs can't be abused with Jodah, so I'd remove it.
Genesis Wave : Same deal.
Enlightened Tutor : There are no artifacts outside of a couple of gearhulks and Magister Sphinx , and the only enchantments that seem worth finding are Rhystic Study and Omniscience . It doesn't seem too potent in here.
Enter the Infinite : You can't actually win immediately when this resolves (unless I'm missing something). When this is the case, it's not quite worth it.
Nissa's Revelation : Given how many ways this deck can refill its hand, consider that this doesn't add to the board state, reveals a card in your hand, and is a turn off of doing something else.
Terastodon : I've never really liked this card. Just personal preference. It's a vanilla 9/9 that doesn't do much outside of removal.
Vindicate : I prefer Beast Within or Swords to Plowshares when given the option. You have Anguished Unmaking , Cruel Ultimatum , Despark , Assassin's Trophy , and tutors to find them, sorcery speed is without use. More interaction in a deck like this seems as if it's a juxtaposition to the gameplan.
That's all I have for what may be banished, however, I have one recommendation:
Treachery seems as if it would be awesome in here. Steal a creature then cast something huge. A lot of value here.

iNinjy I do think Magister Sphinx could be valuable but I don't know how I feel about situational cards. Maybe that's my problem with building this deck. I think a spell like Phyrexian Metamorph is more valuable overall, but I like the ability to copy plane walkers so I might put it in. idk about you but I love Aminatou and her play styles

Depending on your final choice on which way you’re going to build this, I have a flicker Aminatou deck of my own that I started playing MtG with (Aminatou flicker).

Some really simple combos are, Magister Sphinx + Rite of Replication + Exsanguinate . Another is Beacon of Immortality + Vizkopa Guildmage . Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood . There are so many possible combos! Maybe consider a Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Overall I like the idea. I made a Oloro deck too but it is more life gain themed deck. You go yourself a +1

If you put a Rakdos the Defiler into play with the ability, you don't need to sacrifice anything.
Putting a Silent Arbiter into play attacking means you can attack with any number of critters, but they can only block with one.

also Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is an awesome planeswalker for artifacts!
