Sharding Sphinx

Artifact Creature — Sphinx


Whenever an artifact creature you control deals combat damage to a player, you may create a 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature token with flying.

Interesting deck idea! Sharding Sphinx seems well suited to this deck, both as a token generator and as a target for copying. March of Progress could also be pretty hilarious during later stages of a game. For some additional targeted removal, Meteor Golem could also be a nice copy target.

DemonDragonJ Thank you for your help!

I had both Master of Etherium and Sharding Sphinx in the original list but I've reached a point where I don't know what to cut. Any suggestions? What would you take out in exchange for either?

As far as the artifact dual lands, while I think they're awesome, I was just trying to keep the number of tapped lands down to a minimum to increase the chances of casting Breya ASAP.

Have you considered either Master of Etherium or Sharding Sphinx for this deck? I imagine that they would be very awesome in it.

We have codeblocks you can use to make the theme even more on point. I'll show you what to copy and paste, in the codeblock itself.

Just copy the entire thing and pop it into your description. Then you can delete my comment so it isn't posted twice on your deck <3

Some thoughts:

  • You’re currently running 2x each of Inkwell Leviathan and Sharding Sphinx, but you probably just want 4x of the Leviathan, and ditch the Sphinx entirely. The leviathan is just soo much stronger than the Sphinx in every way that I just don’t see the point in running both.

  • the plan of using Riddlesmith and Containment Construct feels super awkward to assemble, and really fragile to disruption. I would have thought just using drawspells like Thought Monitor and Thoughtcast to be much more efficient and resilient, even if they individually can’t dig as deep.

  • something like Scarecrone might be useful for providing additional ways to get your big creatures out.

The idea seems pretty interesting, i’m just worried that the deck currently gets hosed by any kind of board interaction, right up until the point you get your finisher out. I’m not sure if there’s an easy way to solve that problem. Welding Jar should help a ton for at least keeping Master Transmuter alive long enough to do its thing
