Sphinx of the Final Word Discussion

So what makes Sphinx of the Final Word better than say...Emrakul or Progenitus?

Scorprix It is a really nice suggestion!! I will add her in the sideboard and make some playtests to see if she fits in right! THANKS a LOT!!!!!

pax. Ok, are you trying to be sarcastic here? If yes, no problem. If not, Sphinx of the Final Word MAKES POSSIBLE AN UNCOUNTERABLE 20+ damage to the face.

mack10k Of course my friend! There was only one tier 1 deck. Aggro zombies. But i don't think i have aproblem with mardu vehicles either. Now that i "mained" sweltering suns, it's all good.

I ran this out late night, and went 3-2. I'm no pro, having won the "Worst Magic Player" award in 1994 & 2015.

I wasn't ran over by aggro in my losses, but the lack of interaction early did allow my opponents to set up their combo pieces for some frustrating mid-game losses...because I was soooooooo close to a pay off!

Having 9-11 lands on the battlefield by turn 4 wasn't uncommon, but I most of the time I felt like I wasn't ramping into anything because I'd have no real action in hand. I'm thinking that a couple of Pull from Tomorrows would help out with that, or maybe some Censors for early control and/or cycling.

I never had the chance to cast either Coax from the Blind Eternities, Rise from the Tides, nor Sphinx of the Final Word. My wins came from awakening Part the Waterveil, Crush of Tentacles, and some massive 14+ damage Burn from Withins.

I filled out the sideboard with a pretty generic suite of 2x Ceremonious Rejection, Essence Scatter, Negate, Imprisoned in the Moon, Sweltering Suns, and Commit / Memory.

Five games is a very small sample size, but hopefully the feedback helps tune this deck up. :)

Made some changes, some of which may not be permanent depending on their performance.

In: Diluvian Primordial, Angelic Arbiter, Fumigate, Gravitational Shift, Archon of Redemption, Strionic Resonator, and Azorius Charm.

Out: Sphinx of the Final Word, Resolute Archangel, Polymorphist's Jest, Corrupted Conscience, Dungeon Geists, Borrowing 100,000 Arrows, and Dramatic Rescue

Thoughts? Any alternate suggestions? Let me know.

TheBooman: That is a great card, being a counter and a creature in one, but what would you recommend removing in favour of it? Spell Queller being rare means I'd have to remove one of my (much more robust) win conditions - Kefnet the Mindful, Glyph Keeper or Sphinx of the Final Word - or my only board wipe in Fumigate. Do you think it's worth one of those slots?

Mercurial Geists will work better for you than Curator of Mysteries drop Cryptic Serpent for 2 Sphinx of the Final Word toss in some counterspells for the sideboard like Negate and Remove Soul. Glimmer of Genius is much stronger for your deck than Hieroglyphic Illumination but since you are running Fevered Visions you may want to cut down on the draw and put in 2 more copies and run more bounce effects like Baral's Expertise and Select for Inspection. Your deck is far from bad, but it looks like you are trying to go 2 different directions. If you want to win with creatures, run more prowess and pump spells. If you want to control the board run the 4 Fevered Visions with some burn and bounce effects. In either case a few Turn Aside will protect your stuff from removal and be worthy of main deck inclusion. Dont forget Rise from the Tides either. It is a game ender and if you wait long enough to cast you can keep up mana for a counter to protect your army. Summary Dismissal and Unsubstantiate are both very useful as well since they don't counter. Good luck

kortioznikas Hahahahah. I was damn lucky. Sphinx of the Final Word saved me from a blue deck xD . Also, Commit / Memory is a major hit, because no one pays much attention, when i discard it or fuel the graveyard with it . I am open to any suggestions though. Do you think that i am missing something? I want to take this deck to another tournament, but i don't want to rely on my luck again xD

Would Sphinx of the Final Word fit in here? I've got her in my blue control deck, much to the chagrin of my opponents :)
