Sphinx's Insight Discussion
1 month ago
There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.
First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.
More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.
Some cards to cut would be:
Hope this helps!

Possibly Sphinx's Insight instead of Chemister's Insight and Revitalize ? I know that it will be a 4 drop, so it would be quite expensive for just drawing two cards and gaining 2 health when I can Opt twice with only two mana with scrying one. It seems rather costly to draw two cards with Sphinx's Insight and Chemister's Insight ! If I could only use Revitalize then it would be like Opt except costing one more mana for the trade-off of 3 life, which would be very useful!

That way, you can re-cast it by discarding a less useful card (like an extra land) later in the game.
It wouldn't trigger Hero of Precinct One , but I think it's still a much better choice.
Love the deck! Thanks for sharing.

I'm not sure about Sphinx's Insight , it does trigger the Hero but Chemister's Insight is really good the re-cast value. Same for Invade the City , is it just to have a big multicolored dude for the Hero ?
Otherwise, deck is looking quite solid !

This is a control deck first, mill second, Seal Away is a highly useful card for this deck with the nearly 0 creatures. My reasoning for using Chemister's Insight is the jump-start and the instant speed which I use for a few reasons, but primarily to proc Dovin's Acuity .
But I still need more playtesting on this to figure it out a bit more, I notice a few problems it has in it's current state

I would get rid of Sphinx's Insight : 4 CMC for drawing two cards in my opinion is too expensive and the addendum effect is negligible. I'd rather opt for Opt (no pun intended), which for gives you 1 card AND let you scry.

I like your build, I was also toying with having a Petitioner EDH for the fun factor.
Also a nice card to have could be Strionic Resonator .
One minor point, you cannot use Talisman of Dominance , because it also generates black mana.
