Windreader Sphinx seems to be a good here

SaifurCommander on Making a Sharuum the Hegemon ...

So, I'm making a buy/trade list for an Esper Sphinx artifact deck. This list isn't including cards I already have, I'll add that as I go or as people suggest the cards I do have.

Basically, what I'm looking for is suggestions of cards to add or remove from this list.

Would rather just remove the creature than Armament of Nyx

Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are good for landfall but not here

There are better lands than guildgates that are still cheap (like life lands)

Suggested lands Azorius Chancery, Glacial Fortress, Simic Growth Chamber, Hinterland Harbor, Prairie Stream, Canopy Vista, Port Town, Fortified Village, Sungrass Prairie, Skycloud Expanse

Utility Lands: Gavony Township, Moorland Haunt, Faerie Conclave, Bant PanoramaDuelist's Heritage > Fireshrieker

Creature Buff: Wilt-Leaf Liege, Always Watching , Gaea's Anthem

Leonin Sun Standard is ok, but I'm not a huge fan.

Mask of Memory > Rogue's Gloves

Removal: Bant Charm Treva's CharmArmy of Allah is meh. Misthollow Griffin is too costly. Hovermyr won't block too much with 2 toughness, so vigilance isn't too great, making 2 mana cost, too much. Aven Sunstriker cost too much for its power.

Other: Finest Hour, Angus Mackenzie, Flurry of Wings Sunscape Familiar, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Deepfathom Skulker, Gravitational Shift, Windreader Sphinx, Archon of Redemption, Skyblinder Staff

In memory of DnD Characters: Ragnar

+1 from me! I just finished building The Locust God and it's been fun for the few games I've played

Sadly you can't use Westvale Abbey  Flip since it's color identity is black. Also you have two Charmbreaker Devils listed; if you're looking for something to replace it I love Windreader Sphinx

Feel free to swing by my deck on my profile for ideas (and +1!). Cheers!

Got my cards mixed up! I meant I'd drop Windreader Sphinx for Kindred Discovery

Yesterday on The Sphinxes are coming!

Urgh, had a whole thing typed out here and then accidentally closed the browser. That's annoying.

The deck looks neat, is it something you've played with already or still in the planning stages? Also just FYI it's Sphinxes, not Sphinx's. :P

There are a number of utility cards coming in the new commander 2017 set for tribal decks that I'm sure would help you out, but considering they're not out yet I'll stick with cards that actually exist. Like Consecrated Sphinx. Also I'm not sure what your budget is so I'm just gonna throw out some kinda expensive suggestions in the mix.

I'm sure a Cavern of Souls and possibly a Boseiju, Who Shelters All would be nice for some extra protection. As for cycling lands, in a mono blue deck that doesn't care about deserts, both Remote Isle and Lonely Sandbar are strictly better than Desert of the Mindful. On the topic of lands, if you like artifacts, there are some more neat inclusions that might interest you: Academy Ruins, Mishra's Workshop (crazy expensive), Sequestered Stash, Tolarian Academy.

Also, considering you're running Paradox Engine and can potentially tutor for it, I might recommend Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith, maybe instead of Ur-Golem's Eye or something.

It sort of goes against the artefact theme you're running but I personally prefer Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study to Mind's Eye, it puts the tax on the opponent instead of you. You mightn't always draw cards off them, but they're somewhat cheaper in multiplayer games and can force opponents to chose to pay the tax instead of good spells, which is subtly very nice.

Argent Sphinx is actually great in here I'm just realising. Neat.

It's down to preference and playstyle more than anything, but maybe (considering you're running Warden of Evos Isle) you might want to run Icefall Regent instead of Frost Titan.

You also might want to run Shapesharer instead of Mistform Ultimus, it can target itself with its ability and also the number of other nice shapeshifters you've got in your deck.

There isn't a lot of cycling in the deck so I'm not really sure what Curator of Mysteries or Ominous Sphinx offer the deck aside from being sphinxes. Some other fun sphinxes I like are Master of Predicaments and Sphinx Ambassador, and some others that might synergise with your commander or otherwise offer good card advantage are Consecrated Sphinx, Horizon Scholar, Prognostic Sphinx, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Lost Truths, Sphinx of Uthuun, Vexing Sphinx, Windreader Sphinx.

There are a lot of great sphinxes actually, whew.

Anywho, good luck with it!

So, I was wondering why my deck consistently underperformed, and after reviewing my deck a bit I realized I somehow ended up only running 31 lands and a lot more high cost things than I should've been playing. I also realized I was running a bit of lockdown stuff, and I think wanted to tone that down a bit in favor of more tribal support. As this was the case, I decided to fix it up a bit.

I like this deck a lot, I really do. Skullclamp could be hilarious, but I don't know how will I fits into your casual meta. Cards that draw for attacking like Military Intelligence or Windreader Sphinx could be fun, same with Thopter Spy Network, but that is more with artifacts. Something that gives universal haste could also help.
