Arbiter of the Ideal - Untaps cheats things into play (hits 70% of the deck)

Sandstone Oracle - ETB draw cards

Sphinx of Magosi - Activated ability draw cards

Hour of Need - Terrible card but a Flavor win - Maybe you have difficulty dealing with indestructible creatures??
Sphinx-Bone Wand - Flavor Win

Adaptive Automaton/Brass Herald/Metallic Mimic - Sphinx "Lords"

Belbe's Portal - cheat Sphinx's into play - good against other control decks

Sphinx of Jwar Isle - combos well with Conundrum Sphinx

I would definitely have 5+ consistent ways to copy instants/sorceries, because she gets crazy with them. I specifically added ones that I don't think are listed on EDHREC for her:

Saw this on the MTG Deckbuilder subreddit. I'm diggin the Kiln Fiend combo -- I have a red/blue spell deck that I'm looking to modify.You should check out Isochron Scepter, Izzet Charm, & Sphinx-Bone Wand. The wand is out of your mana range, but maybe there's a good way to cheat it out. +1

Hi fury157. All 3 of those cards are great, however they don't lend themselves to my strategy. If I wasn't running so many spells, Mizzix's Mastery & Epic Experiment would be no brainers for sure.

There's a lot of 'when you cast a spell, do an awesome thing' cards out there and Sphinx-Bone Wand is definitely one of them, but it's so expensive to cast, slow to build up and conditional on casting spells. If I use all of my mana to cast it, odds are it will be a wasted turn due to it being removed before having a chance to add value.

The main goal of this deck is to either out-value/control the board with spells or combo out. Sphinx-Bone Wand falls into the 'good stuff' realm - I'm not saying it isn't a sweet card and that's awesome that you've had success with it, it's just not the right fit for my strat.

Seeing this is interesting because I just built my first deck, and it uses this commander and this general playstyle. I used about 70 of the same cards you did. I threw in Mizzix's Mastery and Epic Experiment, and even though they do limit Mizzix's abilities to some extent, I find them pretty invaluable to pulling spells I need from my graveyard. It really surprises me Sphinx-Bone Wand isn't in here, though. That wins games for me. And it's also one of my few cohesive win conditions, but I also built my deck on a pretty strict budget and had to buy every single card for it, so I cut out a lot of the more expensive cards that you have here. I might need meekstone, though...

If you don't mind, may I take a look at your list? Would help me with suggestions in general.

However, I would advise Sphinx-Bone Wand in general.
