Sphinx's Tutelage Discussion

BalkanDS Honestly, I play the passive route when in multiplayer. So my mind set is less about winning, and more about just having fun and ruining lives. That said, even playing passively lets one get to the win sometimes. A week or so ago, Psychic Battle got me the win. it was a long drawn out 5 hour game, where literally i had to think and respond to every spell cast. but it was neat seeing it happen.

I've also accidentally won via planeswalker ults, notably Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage. Once even Won with Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, got to play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth with her before

Also have won from milling someone out with Sphinx's Tutelage and the other top deck control cards or Bitter Ordeal if the situation arises.

Also don't forget that Oona, Queen of the Fae can drop a LOT of flyers ;)

Sphinx's Tutelage might be better than the curse since you also run Brainstorm. Howling Mine works wonders with Forsaken City and accelerates your win condition.

If Howling Mine is too pricy for you, Temple Bell is cheaper, but slightly slower.

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks

Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.

that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)

and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

Shriekhorn is better with Fraying Sanity than Tome Scour. It's more versatile early and late game, and does more mathematically.

Curse of the Bloody Tome isn't as good as Sphinx's Tutelage, for the same price.

Drift of Phantasms over Hover Barrier. Its transmute ability can help you tutor Fraying Sanity or Sphinx's Tutelage if your current boardstate is defensively sufficient.

I would drop the defender 1-of's and put in 2 more Hedron Crabs. Your defensive base is good with all of your walls, I would concentrate on more mill speed.

Which brings me to Chronic Flooding. One of these won't do you any good. Just remove it for another Mind Sculpt. Same price, gets more done.

This has potential and is a bit different in approach than what I've seen. Kudos.

For FNM I would play 4 Archive Trap since there are a lot of fetchlands in modern , also it works well with Ghost Quarter!! Mesmeric Orb is really good also and can work well with Manic Scribe to help yourself turn on delirium! Also i would suggest some creature removal like Dismember. And I can also suggest Sphinx's Tutelage over Jace's Erasure
