Sphinx-Bone Wand Discussion

bem77 on Silent but deadly v1.1

With such a low mana curve, I am not sure you need as many mana rocks as you have. I would consider the following artifact: Aetherflux Reservoir, Primal Amulet, Runechanter's Pike, and Sphinx-Bone Wand.

Not sure why you have Blue Elemental Blast in this deck as just about any counter spell is better. I would try to include as many cantrips that draw a card as you can as it will cycle through your deck faster while getting you value. Such as cards like Anticipate, Defiant Strike, Opt, Peek, Shadow Rift, Crash Through, Ponder, and Renegade Tactics.

I like Narset, if you want another version of her rebound effect, check out Taigam, Ojutai Master. Also if you end up with a critical amount of combat tricks, Zada, Hedron Grinder can be a real power punch.

I made a version of this deck that is much more Token/Storm-centric. Take a look at it for some ideas, Shu Yun Tempest of Tokens. The strategies are different, but there are some cards that are common for most Shu Yun decks.

Hi muht1234,

Fellow Mizzix of the Izmagnus player, Mizzix, the Storm EDH. (I actually don't have any cards with the word "Storm" printed on them)

If your interested, I have quite a bit of discussion in my description around some combos and Alternative card evaluations.

Since you've invested the $5 in Rite of Replication you can put in Dualcaster Mage <$1 to get infinite Dualcaster Mage. They won't have haste, which sucks, but puts everyone on a 1 turn timer to deal with the Dualcaster Mage horde thats coming next turn! Very $100 budget conscious.

I abuse Nivix Guildmage in my deck, Turnabout $4, Reality Spasm <$1, Frantic Search $2 as a couple examples. Turnabout is just made to go Infinite, You can cut a few $'s by removing the Propaganda $7 and replacing with this guy. Turnabout and Reality Spasm can also go Infinite with Reiterate.

I use Sphinx-Bone Wand <$1 to do damage as I'm casting. Can a win-con when going Infinite (like Reality Spasm + Reiterate.

Baral, Chief of Compliance is awesome, but can save $5 there with a Goblin Electromancer.

Cyclonic Rift is just too expensive if you're trying to get under $100. It's sad, AMAZING card.

Mystic Remora $3 can go, replace it with a Whispers of the Muse (same as Enter the Infinite with Infinite Mana) save $2.

Command Tower $3 isn't necessary with all the draw in and only being 65% 35% .

Mystic Confluence $10 isn't good value either. Vandalblast is awesome, but if you need $, just put in higher cost and rely on the Experience to reduce it's costs.

Swan Song too luxury for budget, go with a Fuel for the Cause or Spell Burst or Wizard's Retort. $4 Counterspell too much.

Just some ideas. Can save $30 there pretty easily and not loose too much value.

Hope something here helps anyway. +1.

Isochron Scepter

Sphinx-Bone Wand

These two cards are not a bad option

Neotrup on Yasova (or other pay to ...

One small correction to Epochalyptik's answer, you cannot choose to pay , even if you really want to. Because the target has been sacrificed, when the ability goes to resolve it will check whether it still has legal targets and find that it's target is gone. The game rules will counter the ability before it gives you the option to pay mana, so the option won't be there. This isn't super relevant for this ability, but if you were instead using something like Sphinx-Bone Wand where the cost is an action you want to preform (adding charge counters), you might be sad that the target was removed.

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
