Sphinx of the Second Sun Discussion

Neat deck! You gave me a few creature ideas. Check mine out for some creature inspiration you don’t have. Cheat n' Beat!. Some I have recently discovered are Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty and Sphinx of the Second Sun . I have a few changes I plan to update soon also.

  • Kozilek, Butcher of Truth replaced by Sphinx of the Second Sun . I recently realized that Kozilek can sometimes really hinder your strategy to deck yourself with. If you pull Thassa's Oracle and Kozilek in the same BFOF, it can be real sad sometimes. Sphinx of the second sun offers immediate value the turn you play it, has a lower CMC, AND it is a sphinx. The only downside is if you are trying to win with Nexus of Fate combo, he can't be on the field, but you could set this up with relative ease.

  • Mind Stone replaced by Jeweled Lotus . This one hardly needs an explanation. Jeweled Lotus is SO good in Unesh, because it allows you to play him really fast sometimes. Mind Stone is really lack luster compared to it, the draw effect doesn't make it worth keeping in the slot.

  • Thassa, God of the Sea replaced by Thassa, Deep-Dwelling . After play testing this, I like the value that Deep dwelling generated mor than God of the sea, even at the increased CMC. If your hand is somehow dead at the end of the turn, Deep-dwelling's ability will really save you (provided a sphinx is on the table).

  • Lonely Sandbar replaced by Glasspool Mimic  Flip. The cycling on sandbar is underwhelming, I'd prefer to have the versatility of being having another potential sphinx instead.

dritchie, I have been running Braids as one of my main decks for years now! I never put it on T/O. Braids is seriously one of my favorite commanders of all time. Utter chaos! I’ve been wanting to do a budget build of her for some time now. Check out Sphinx of the Second Sun :)

Finally took the leap... I dropped Spark Double for Mind Over Matter . The card need another reliable way to tap and untap lands. Since we are trying not to actually go infinite, but instead go over the top BIG mana, Mind Over Matter was the card. Spark double only made another God-Eternal Kefnet or Will Kenrith so it was an easy replacement.

Kefnet has one little Sphinx of the Second Sun friend, but is otherwise creatureless now. So... that’s fun.

jacksonplayz666 Cavalier is great, but Kefnet can’t really abuse it, nor can my spell soubling effects. I ended up going almost no creatures. Spark Double is only ever going to be another Kefnet, or Will Kenrith . Sphinx of the Second Sun is just a bonkers card. No other creatures seem necessary.

SDT is also absurd, but i just don’t have quite as many shuffle effects as i really need to utilize it to it’s best. I’d probably want to run the whole suite of fetch lands, and I don’t want to shell out for that right now. Very good though, and could/would probably replace Scroll Rack .
