Sharding Sphinx Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH | *PRIMER*

KzarKnuckle: Thanks, man! I've finally finished my semester, so I'm free to talk about it whenever :) also, any thoughts on the new primer as a fellow Tetsuko player?

n0bunga: I looked into it, but unfortunately it pumps both power and toughness and leaves my creatures blockable :(

gdm1989: Ooh. That could be interesting! Darn, now I need to find space...

Chiberia: Thanks for the comment!! I wish I owned a copy of Land Equilibrium, haha - I want this deck to be all english, but if I can get an english copy I will need to find space! I am avoiding turns effects currently, but I may reconsider in the near future :) I don't see much removal targeted at my commander, normally, since her ability is only a helper effect, but if that does become a problem I may take you up on the protection suggestions.

SobekisaRedGod: It makes my commander a 3/3 and thus blockable. Plus, shroud keeps me from targeting my own creature, alas.

TheRedGoat: Oh, Meekstone! How did I forget that?!? Darn, now I need a copy. Beyond that, Sharding Sphinx doubles my creature count each turn, so it's faster than the other options. It's a fun finisher in the deck, so I'm hesitant to cut it.

I might play Sharding Sphinx as a utility card in here. It fuels the Time Sieve really well

I agree with Sharding Sphinx as well, sure looks lack-luster but it performs so well because it quickly starts to snowball on it's own ability.

Blasting Station deals damage :P

You could use Cranial Plating to go Voltron, or go artifact creature stax with token generation via stuff like Sharding Sphinx.

Additions: Teferi's Protection, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment

Subtractions: Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Sharding Sphinx, Utter End

I don't have the relevant combo piece for Sharding Sphinx. I added in some board wipes to shut down decks about to hit end game. And Teferi's Protection because that voids board wipes for a turn.

Talonisnthavingit I have thought of Sharding Sphinx but it doesn't fit with unblockable theme and the problem with creature a thopter here and there is that it stops my Thopter Assembly wincons. Not sure how well it'd work overall.

Have you thought of Sharding Sphinx? Call me bias, but I love me some thopters and Vela works very well with her. Additionally, Thopter Spy Network can act as a Bident of Thassa in a way, but instead of forcing your opponent creatures to attack it creates a little thopter during your upkeep. Of course, Thopter Assembly would be less useful unless you had a sacrifice outlet on the field, but it's worth it for more Thopters, amirite?
