Sphinx's Revelation Discussion

lands, maybe Blue Sun's Zenith or something like Jace's Ingenuity for draw power, maybe cards like AEtherize or other bounce spells like Vapor Snag to protect yourself. When i play control, I use good old Sphinx's Revelation and Supreme Verdict

I am sorry I meant to say Sphinx's Revelation! My fault

I remember a video where he opened a box of RTR. Got excited when he saw a foil multicolored card with X in the cost, hoping it was Sphinx's Revelation. It turned out to be an Epic Experiment, and he proceeded to rip the card in half. Just because it wasn't valuable. I stopped following the channel immediately, because to me, it looked like he saw the game as a business more than a game. Sure, it's not the best card ever made, but opening a foil mythic, no matter how good or bad it is, is still exciting to me (excitement varies obviously, but it's still cool)

i would definitely add some more counterspells to the deck.

2x Spell Snare

2x Mana Leak

3x Cryptic Command

and add 1x Sphinx's Revelation

That's already a great start.

What to remove?

2x Lightning Helix

3x Wrath of God (not necessary, add to SB if you really want to, but I wouldn't even do that)

2x Jace Beleren (doesn't make sense in the deck)

1x Remand

Give this playtesting. I really think it can help push the deck into a more competitive state against more top tier deck.

another thing i would highly suggest looking into is some combination of Wall of Omens and Spellskite

I recently adapted a pillowfort deck from something a lot like this. If your main goal is to shut down creature decks that go tall, Darksteel Mutation and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer are some removal options. If instead, you're looking to shut down creature decks that go wide, I'd recommend taxes like Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, or even Sphere of Safety. Detention Sphere is pretty good all around and can be particularly effective against token decks like modern zombies. Some other cards that see a lot of play in Azorius are Sphinx's Revelation and Supreme Verdict. The cards I'd remove would be those like Aven Skirmisher and Elusive Spellfist. They play to a more aggressive strategy that the rest of the deck can't really support.

GeminiSpartanX on Best card draw in UW?

ducttapedeckbox- I was actually thinking of a replacement for the Mystic Remora already in my deck lol. I should probably specify what my deck does as well. It's enchantment voltron with Bruna, Light of Alabaster as the commander. I used to run Mesa Enchantress in it, but found that I was more often just putting the auras into play with Bruna's triggered ability than 'casting' them. Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye both look ok though somewhat expensive cmc-wise. I'll also consider Sphinx's Revelation.

I'm no expert, still learning, but maybe you could try :

-1 Path to Exile because you already have quite a bit of removal with three copies of Detention Sphere

-1 Sphinx's Revelation, Ojutai's Command seems like enough

-1 Ghost Quarter

+1 Hero of Bladehold for battle cry and extra attackers

+2 Azorius Charm
