Replacement for Consecrated Sphinx

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Sept. 4, 2019, 10:33 a.m. by KibaAlpha

Good day all,

I’m looking for some help to find an alternate choice to the powerful card draw of Consecrated Sphinx .

My playgroup doesn’t allow a card like this to stay on the table or even make it to the table most games.

I’m not looking to add a bunch of protection as that would take away from how my deck is built.

Any suggestions as an alternate choice are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What are your deck colors? Obviously blue. Anything else?

Staff of Nin or Thought Reflection might be your best bets

Sorry, that would probably be helpful to everyone.

Green, Black, Blue and White

Without knowing the color identy of your deck or seeing your list it is very hard to help you but in blue I use these:

Well of Ideas ,

Mystic Remora ,

Rhystic Study obviously,

you can also use Kami of the Crescent Moon .

My friends also use these:

Kefnet the Mindful ,

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip,

Azami, Lady of Scrolls .

Hope that helps.

I think Notion Thief is your best option.

Bloodtracker might not be bad for a +1 counter theme deck
