Quote from HomelandZecurity
Sphinx: Great against Jund and RUG Delver. Also great against most Red-based Aggro decks in general.
Quote from PuddlejumperI don't anyone's really explored the potential of monowhite Jund, but it could be amazing.
Quote from urafeverSphinx is actually not great against jund, as they run a bunch of lilianas as well as black removal at times. I think you'd rather have elesh there, because she outright kills bloodbraid and bob immediately, and at least makes goyf smaller.
Quote from HomelandZecurityYea Lily is the only card out of Jund that really deals with Sphinxy, and you can play around her easy enough.
Izzet Charm is definitely very playable in this deck, especially as a SB option alongside Gifts. Being multipurpose makes it MUCH better than having to run Faithless Looting. I'd imagine 1-2 might be maindeckable depending on your build. I'll certainly be chasing down foil copies. I very much approve.
Quote from RhinneYes, thats right, even in scepter you can use every command, since you are casting a copy of the exiled card.
I actually dont like it being at 2 cmc, since spell snare is everywhere, but there is just no way such a good spell could be 1, and 3 is too much.
Quote from pedee pabloYea, but its free. So you could play it and delver turn one. Although I think in this deck it would be too hard to cut 4 cards from the list
Quote from Swizzie2000Think about it this way, why not run memnite? I mean it's a free creature.
Quote from ThatStoryTeller120To progress from the probe discussion has anyone had any recent success with the steppe lynx based lists?
Quote from Rhinnevery important. Eiganjo castle protects geist form snapcasters, bolts, cliques, bobs, maybe from a small tarmogoyf, and the list goes on.
The best fetchland here is, without a doubt, scalding tarn. Next would be between arid mesa and misty rainforest, while marsh flats is last. But since many people run 12 fetches, im guessing all this is not really important, you will most likely run 4 each.
BTW, i prefer annul, but thats just a matter of taste.
