Sphinx's Revelation Discussion
2 weeks ago
I don’t have a ton but notable things I do have are Brazen Borrower, 2 Dig Through Time, Godless Shrine, 2 Drowned Catacomb, 2 Isolated Chapel, 2 Sphinx's Revelation, 2 Absorb, Kaya, Orzhov Usurper, Nyxbloom Ancient, and Temple of Abandon.
I have more stuff, but that’s just off the top of my head. Any idea what I can do about the binder?

Player's life totals can't change.
If damage, a spell, or an ability would cause a player to lose life, that player puts that many cards into their library instead.
If a spell or ability would cause a player to gain life, that player draws that many cards instead.
I'd like to see another character shut down a fundamental aspect of the game.

Nice deck. I feel that Sphinx's Revelation is too influential to pass up in control, especially with Dream Trawler in your deck

Hey man! Deck looks pretty good already, but I have a few suggestions:
Counterbalance is an interesting card in EDH you have in your maybeboard, especially since you're already running Sensei's Divining Top . It works pretty well with Mystic Sanctuary and blue-fetches, like your Scalding Tarn , which I think you should also run.
In general, I don't like Land Tax . The overwhelming majority of your cards are under 4 mana, so you're probably not going to need all the basics out of your deck most games. Land Tax is generally good with repeatable loot-effects like Dack Fayden or Faithless Looting , but I don't know if it'd be good here. Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip or even Jace, the Mind Sculptor are both okay ways to capitalize, if you want to run Land Tax .
Deafening Silence is an absurd card. On your opponents' turns, you probably only need to counter one spell, and on your turn you probably just need to land a stax piece.

Thanks for the recommendations. I haven't heard of Peregrine Drake or Soulherder . All of these recommendations look very interesting, but I'm trying to go more for a commander damage wincon and getting that sweet Sphinx's Revelation value. This in mind, I do have a few blinks and some clones in the deck, which could allow me to take both routes.

@abbatromebone yeah im not sure about Amulet of Vigor either... the idea seemed pretty good though and ive seen it mentioned/talked about many times over in various Maze's End forums but for what my deck is aiming to do i dont think it will shine with the absence of lands like Simic Growth Chamber .
I have most of my gameplan dedicated to colors at least to a point where i can reliably draw into and play for additional fog Dawn Charm power and mainboard universal spot removal with Detention Sphere . Because I'm in 5 colors by default via gates/end Cruel Ultimatum as a 1 or 2 of and between all of this decks draw/cantrips and Expedition Map / Gatecreeper Vine it really isnt too hard to cast; but certainly requires deliberate color fixing/gate fetches... It's a very high risk high reward spell in my opinion. I use Ultimatum very similarly here to how Sphinx's Revelation is used in other Control decks. I truly love this card but using Sphinx's revelation would probably be better; but I personally just like the style points.
