Sphinx's Insight Discussion

I would use Chemister's Insight instead of Sphinx's Insight .

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 !

@SoulsSlayerKnight So, I love Drowned Secrets , I have a Mono Blue deck built around it, I actually made this deck after that one. I've been thinking about placing it in this deck as well.

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 .

I am looking at a few cards to replace Thought Collapse since it has a 2 Blue cost. Currently Eyes Everywhere , Sphinx's Insight , Precognitive Perception and Unwind .

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 agree with the other users above who suggested Absorb for a useful counterspell and Chart a Course for extra draw.

I like your build, I was also toying with having a Petitioner EDH for the fun factor.

I would run Absorb from the new block, not sure if also Sphinx's Insight could be worth it instead of Sphinx's Revelation .

Also a nice card to have could be Strionic Resonator .

Since you are going for alternative mills, maybe Fleet Swallower could work better than Traumatize ?

Nice thing is also blinking your creatures through Eerie Interlude , Ghostway or Brago, King Eternal .

One minor point, you cannot use Talisman of Dominance , because it also generates black mana.

No data for this card yet.
