Consecrated Sphinx occurrence in decks from the last year
Consecrated Sphinx Discussion

I would cut Howling Mine , Font of Mythos , Kami of the Crescent Moon , and any cards like that I missed (I do not include Teferi's Puzzle Box on that list since it doesn’t provide your opponents card advantage). One of Nekusar’s big problems is that you are providing your opponents extra cards they can use to stop your victory. These types of cards are not fast enough - they provide only incremental damage when you want to be hitting for huge damage with wheel effects.
Here are some other cards to consider:
Curiosity combos with Niv-Mizzet to quickly close out games. Helm of the Ghastlord also combos with Niv. Placed on Nekusar when a wheel effect is used, it locks all your opponents out of playing anything other than instants, since they’ll discard their hand to the wheel and then be forced to discard anything they drew.
On that note, Cyclonic Rift itself is an amazing card you should include.
Consecrated Sphinx is a whole lot of value here.

Dance of the Manse : For pillowforty decks like Pramikon to return removed stax pieces like Suppression Field (very strong card as it includes fetchlands and PW's and shuts off a nice variety of other stuff....mainly all of my other decks as they often assemble creature loops), or Oath of Lieges , or Confounding Conundrum (vs pesky ramp) and so on. It's in mah baby Pramikon Hurr Durr Slow Game.
Ghostly Pilferer : You want to have a value piece vs commanders and a discard outlet for potential reanimator style and the ability to draw on its own? Here you go. Speaking of reanimator: get yourself some ape snake with Thieving Amalgam . This thing takes over the game, if reanimated early (sure Grave Titan , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sire Of Insanity and a heap of others do so too, but they are not as cheap as mah boi or make it a non game like the Sire or Jin-Gitaxias do). It's like a battlecruiser version of Consecrated Sphinx .

Am I missing something? Or is the autofill for some cards just wrong? Squirrel Nest is set number 182 in Modern Horizons, if it helps for some reason

Ramble you know you can vote as many times as you'd like, right? To be fair both are more than deserving, though if I had to choose between the two I'd go with Consecrated Sphinx ; the combos enabled by Deadeye Navigator are numerous and potent, but Consecrated Sphinx simply has more universal application, and is no slouch in terms of power on its own either. The navigator is simply too dependent on interactions with other cards to be considered ahead of the sphinx in my opinion.
