Magus of the Future Discussion

So, so far we have my Magus of the Future, Goblin Sharpshooter and Aspect of Mongoose for a total of almost $5. Would that do for the 2 plains?

I could do a plains for Magus of the Future and Aspect of Mongoose. Anything else to add for the 2nd plains?

Here's how I would start on a midrange blue deck with focus on your favourite sphinx. I tried not to bring any cards that only allow for looking at the topcard, and apart from that just quality blue dudes. Plan for the deck is to stay alive (and it might need more and better stay-alive cards) until some kind of card machine starts rolling - either Magus of the Future og sphinx + top-deck-spying.

Perhaps grand architect feels a bit lonely, either needing something like Chasm Skulker or more Master of Waves, to make tokens to buff, or something artifact to help cast.

A few other things: Temporal Trespass is a nonbo with Rise from the Tides and Cryptic Serpent. I think you should remove the delve-card.

Spells with an x-cost are going to be underwhelming in a deck with relatively little land - playing Blue Sun's Zenith for 3 cards will cost 6 mana, and not be something you can expect to do much earlier than turn 11. I'll leave that hanging: 6 mana for 3 cards, in turn 11. Is it worth a slot? Aren't some of the monoblue planeswalkers better, since they give long term card advantage?

I think either Magus of the Future or Future Sight could be useful in this deck. Sure, sometimes you end up announcing to your opponent what you are going to draw. But you might also lock the game down when opponent can see a counterspell of some sort on top of your library. You could also consider Isochron Scepter for more semi-lockdown pieces (getting out of a scepter with Remand on it is just no fun at all).

Judge's Familiar is a pretty ok card, but it's 4 or 0, since it's only good in the early game. Also, it is much better in decks where you mess with your opponents mana. I don't think you'd miss it much if you removed it from this deck.

the win condition here is through combat damage and control jordybear2002. Conundrum Sphinx is a 4/4 flyer and "draw engine" for getting cheap and efficient counterspells and bounces in hand. Magus of the Future allows to play the top spell of the library witch makes you become a card advantage machine and even allows you to play a topdecked land if you haven't already played one. he also doubles as a huge devotion contribution for waking up Thassa, God of the Sea who is then a 5/5 unblockable and indestructible creature.

You want to cut Gilded Lotus. It's the wrong tempo for this deck. Also if your going to be as into the Future Sight/Sensei's Divining Top plan as you are with both Magus of the Future and Future Sight you want to add Trinket Mage, Etherium Sculptor and maybe a Cloud Key or Fabricate. Now I would ask you what is the reason for Grixis? Without a Wheel of Fortune or a Yawgmoth's Will I really think going to Esper and getting access to a Enlightened Tutor and Silence would help your deck out a lot. Other cards you should add are Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Mystic Remora, Mental Misstep, Preordain, Merchant Scroll and maybe Demonic Consultation since its a quick easy way to win with Laboratory Maniac. You also have way to many lands. Decks like this run no more than 30.

Looks pretty good but i think you might want to add in a few ways to sweep the board for when things get out of hand. Nevinyrral's Disk, Cyclonic Rift Ixidron and Boompile are probably your best bets out of monoblue.

Here are also a few other random suggestions.

Mind Over Matter +azami allows you to dig through your deck pretty quickly. (with somethink like Psychosis Crawler out it usually wins you the game even if you don't want to run Laboratory Maniac)

Arcanis the Omnipotent, Sower of Temptation, Magus of the Future, Vedalken AEthermage, Venser, Shaper Savant and Glen Elendra Archmage are good utility wizards

Riptide Laboratory is a good way to save your creatures from removal spells in a pinch, or to get continuous enter the battlefield effects like Archaeomancer.

Hope this helps!
