Sphinx of Foresight Discussion

Da_Zorret on Myr Cruelty (TURN 2 WIN)

4 weeks ago

I've following this deck since the very 1st day. I use Perilous Myr because it's a free drop and it can remove some annoying creatures and I went down to 2 copies with Sphinx of Foresight because they always stay in my hand doing nothing. If you ever update the deck, I'll be here

Added 1X Mesmerizing Benthid Added 1X Augur of Bolas Removed 1x Sphinx of Foresight Removed 2x Tempest Caller

Benthid was much more helpful than Sphinx, Tempest Caller was slow relative to Watertrap Weaver and I felt another Augur would help substantially early game.

I feel like splashing green just for Merfolk Mistbinder and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales isn't correct but I can't think of any card that buffs your guys in mono-blue to replace it. Going mono would however improve your mana base slightly and would make Tempest Djinn an option.

Ashiok seems bad just because few decks care about graveyards or searching and you don't care about getting milled either. Kefnet is cool as a 4/5 but being both legendary and resistant to removal I'd suggest swapping out a couple of him for Sphinx of Foresight . Narset, Parter of Veils is a great sideboard card right now.

Apart from that, I like your card choices. This strategy definitely has it's advantages.

Flooremoji on Teyo is super cute, okay? (WAR Standard)

Ok, I would first cut some basics for shocks, budget permitting of course. Ix Binding can cut for some combo of K-Wrath, Mortify , and Contempt. Kaya BoTD could be an extra land, Sphinx of Foresight might be good, but if it underpreforms, Seal Away and Settle the Wreckage have been good to me :) The 3 mana dovin can also be a sort of replacement for kaya.

I hear you Quadsimotto,

I am still not convinced that Sphinx of Foresight adds much value. Forerunner of the Legion could be useful to find your Paladin. I have Deputy of Detention as a side-board card, allowing me to play more counter-spells main-board. This deck is, however, new for me and I suppose that I will learn more as I begin to play it.

What Pikobyte said. But for specific suggestions, I'll list them below.

- Brood Monitor isn't super strong in EDH. Not necessarily a must-cut, but one I'd definitly keep in mind. - Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is super powerful, but the mana requirements are pretty tough in a three-color deck. - Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis doesn't do much for your game plan. You have much better ways for forced sacrifice. - Scribe of the Mindful should probably be cut, unless you really want to keep the amount of Instant/Sorcery spells high. - Sphinx of Foresight , while interesting, is just kinda... meh. - Thallid Soothsayer is okay, but there are better sac outlets available to you. - Verdant Force is far too expensive and slow for what it does. - Weaver of Currents doesn't produce colored mana, which is important for a three-color deck.
- Curse of Disturbance isn't great, and not something you want to spend your T3 play on. - Underworld Connections could be cut in favor of better draw spells. Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study would be great here. -I respect the Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond combo, but without both cards you're stuck with a 5 CMC enchantment that doesn't do much for you.
- Haunted Fengraf and Rogue's Passage are both underwhelming, I'd look at replacing them with lands that produce colored mana or have stronger utility.
- Cast Down , Doom Blade , Incubation / Incongruity , Price of Fame , and Vona's Hunger are all decent removal, but again, you should prioritize permanents with those effects. - Dismiss and Unwind both seem like they're thrown in here. There's not much use for them. There are even creatures that can counter spells. - Thought Scour is worse than Stitcher's Supplier in this deck.
Nothing specific to replace here, but I would look into better (cheaper CMC) mana rocks and other value engines.

I created a similar vesrion with Sphinx of Foresight and it is very good.

Consider Captive Audience 1x as second win con.
