Sphinx's Tutelage Discussion

I have some more cheaper mill cards if you wanted to cut some of the bigger cards: Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mesmeric Orb, Sphinx's Tutelage, Memory Erosion, Ruin Crab, Bruvac the Grandiloquent (is an all-star, and I pulled one in a Jumpstart pack!), Maddening Cacophony, Archive Trap, Mind Grind and Hedron Crab

There are also some cards to keep graveyard decks off your neck by milling then exiling their yard like: Ravenous Trap, Leyline of the Void, Tormod's Crypt, and Relic of Progenitus

Last but not least, Bitter Ordeal will do some extremely heavy lifting when you mill someone for major cards in a turn. I recently realized that Gravestorm triggers off of any permanent put into any graveyard! That was a big find, and is helpful even with smaller triggers to root through their deck and turn off combo and exile other problematic cards before they are cast.

What do you believe is better for this deck? Sphinx's Tutelage or Grindstone?

I'm saying play more 1-ofs that you can transmute for. Its the payoff for transmute; golden bullets.

When you need to look out sideboard cards List of Modern Sideboard Staples hasn't been updated in a couple years but still has most of the stuff, but you can also look at tournament lists to see what people are putting in.

Profane Memento,Cling to Dust, Stern Dismissal, Drown in the Loch, Echoing Truth. This could also help you find the power cards you are missing; stuff like Visions of Beyond or the Archive Trap/Scheming Symmetry interactions. Generally the most competitive version of the deck is just fetches and saying "Hedron Crab, save me!", but its been an expensive tier2 list for a long time; there are budget options for a lot of the slots.

If you need power without picking up a bankbreaking manabase, pick up visions and then think about tinkering with Sphinx's Tutelage type 'stick enchantments and draw cards', with spells like Remand to stay alive is fun; the main advantage of non-netdecks and rogue decks is unpredictability; play around with different plans.

Pick sideboard cards based on what your deck needs to do in the matchup; slowing down aggressive decks that want to race you and protecting your threats/putting down a difficult to remove threat against decks that are slower than you. Mostly it'll be specific 'this buys me a couple turns for my orbs to win the game' cards.

Look at why matchups don't feel good and think 'what cards in my hand would have needed to be other cards to win that match'. Sometimes the answer is 'play a different deck', but other times you realise that if a secretkeeper was an Echoing Truth to search for, you'd win.

If you aren't planning on making it to where you can get more value from the crabs, then yes I would consider cutting them for something else. I'm not like a mill expert or anything so I am not sure what exactly.

However, here is something worth considering. This deck has no card draw. This means that either you should add some with Visions of Beyond or play Ensnaring Bridge because you're likely to be top-decking at some point due to the lack of draw. Ensnaring Bridge could give you the time you need to mill the opponent or Visions of Beyond in tandem with something like Sphinx's Tutelage could speed up the process.

Into the Story también es buen draw. un Ipnu Rivulet también viene bien. Crypt Incursion contra mazos con mucho creature. Mesmeric Orb también se usa mucho maindeck en los mazos competitivos
