Sphinx of New Prahv Discussion

Woooo.... That is very busted.
I mean... a 4 mana 4/4 flyer with hexproof and upside is phenomenal, generally playable. Look at Sphinx of New Prahv for easy comparison.
Scry 4 per turn (easily 4+), is insane.
The -1 isn't as good as the rest, but synergizes well with control decks and handles a threat in a way that protects Mu Yanling and can help in a tempo build.

God-Eternal Kefnet is better than Sphinx of New Prahv and the same amount of mana cost! Lawmage's Binding is like Prison Realm but just as good; either one is acceptable depending upon what mana you want to use!

I take it you started with the Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind planeswalker deck.
Two main suggestions in general:
I would suggest to keep the deck to mono-blue if you can, as this will allow you to not get color screwed (getting too many lands of one color, but not enough of another). If you insist on going White-blue, you need to run some dual color lands (maybe a set of Glacial Fortress ).
I would also suggest you get rid of your non-flying things and stay away from 1x counts. By having more one-ofs, you are thinning the probability to get the best cards.
If you dont mind cards rotating out of standard in october, the most obvious addition to this is Favorable Winds . A mono blue version of this would make the also soon rotating Tempest Djinn really good.
Having said this, let me give you a break down on how I would upgrade your deck in its colors:
-1x Callous Dismissal -1x Bond of Discipline +2 Winged Words Since all of your creatures are flyers, you really want to be able to draw 2 cards for only 2 mana. This is also your only draw spell and Amass doesn't really make sense here.
-2x Spectral Sailor -2x Concordia Pegasus +4x Healer's Hawk Spectral Sailor and Concordia Pegasus can be easily replaced by the hawk, which will gain you life (and time) for you to get your finisher cards

musicman3310 should I swap Sphinx of New Prahv for Baird, Steward of Argive ? Ive been thinking about it but a 4/3 flyer with vigilance and a tax just sounds pretty decent in this deck. Kinjalli's Sunwing doesnt do enough for this deck I feel but it would be good in the sideboard.
