Magus of the Future Discussion

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.

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.

Ideally for my Tatyova deck I would have all the fetch lands, Crucible of Worlds (Which I just got), a Strip Mine as an alternative yet douchey win condition if the game goes on too long, Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Magus of the Future, Dryad Arbor, Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Thousand-Year Elixir, Thawing Glaciers, Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Seedborn Muse, Murkfiend Liege, Scorched Ruins, Roil Elemental, Rhystic Study, Petrified Field, Patron of the Moon, Pathbreaker Ibex, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Lotus Vale, Kodama's Reach, Into the Wilds, Hall of the Bandit Lord, Breeding Pool, Flooded Grove, Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map, Eternal Witness, Dreamscape Artist, Concordant Crossroads, Command Beacon, Chromatic Lantern (IF you have all the fetches), Cephalid Coliseum, Boundless Realms, Blackblade Reforged,Alchemist's Refuge. Not sure if I will put all these in but most for sure and there are some good ideas.

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.
Hope this helps!
