Neither artifact will trigger retroactively. If you've cast three instants/sorceries (and nothing else) so far this turn, then play either artifact, and then cast the next instant/sorcery, both artifacts will check your count at that point.

Aetherflux Reservoir sees that you've cast a total of 5 spells (3 before it, plus the Reservoir, plus the next spell) and you will gain 5 life.

Sentinel Tower will see that you've cast 3 instants/sorceries before the most recent, and deal 4 damage to your chosen target.

For reference: Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower

Suppose I have a storm count of 3. I cast either one of those cards. Then, the next instant or sorcery I cast would trigger either one.

My question is that do either of the artifacts check the spells cast before it (So you'd gain 15 life from Reservoir or deal 6 damage with the Tower)? Or do they check the spells once it's in play?

Hey midget_overlord. There are actually a number of win conditions in the deck and the sheer amount of cantrips combined with Taigam's ability to give rebound is more than enough to find them consistently. You have already identified Monastery Mentor and Sentinel Tower, although you did miss Blind Obedience which fills the same space but a lot more discreetly, but that's only half of it; They are pay-offs to the dramatic-scepter combo ( Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter ). The Deck also runs Call to Mind + Relearn + Time Warp and Isochron Scepter + Not Forgotten + Time Warp as other win conditions. I have tried playtesting with Fabricate but have found it too narrow of a tutor as compared to Muddle the Mixture which can not only find the deck's win conditions but also Cyclonic Rift, Reality Shift, Counterspell, Pull from Tomorrow, Blind Obedience, etc. Thank you for asking! I hope this had made things more clear.

if you could throw some suggestions my way it would be much appeciated, thank you!

What should I cut from my The Immaculate Mizzix's Experiment deck to add Sentinel Tower? Is Sentinel Tower even worth cutting a card for?

Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower are both very good win conditions, with reservoir being the better one, and Thought Reflection is very expensive gas. Even if you don’t need another win condition, I would consider Alhammarret's Archive since it does the same effects for cheaper. Overall, what you need to do is decide if you need a wincon or gas.

Should I replace Thought Reflection in my The Immaculate Mizzix's Experiment deck with Aetherflux Reservoir or Sentinel Tower? I think both of them would be good in my deck, but I don't know what else to cut from my deck in order to add them both.

GreenTrampler Thanks! Sphinx-Bone Wand looks neat! I was actually playing with the thought to include Sentinel Tower, but this looks better. I could cut Jeskai Banner for it. Then again, 7 CMC is a bit much. But let's see!
