    not bad. not amazing.

    But that cycling U is nice.

    • Kahai

      Negative, this is by far one of the better Sphinxes printed recently. Low costed sphinx typically have draw backs. This guy is perfect for his cost.

  • Tolle

    4 mana 4/4 with flying, cycling, and a decent triggered. It is sad but this may be the best card in the set so far.

    • Serj

      ehm no.You missed the blu enchantment or the red split card ( the rare one) ? or the new gideon ?

      • Tolle

        No. I have seen every card in the set. They just suck. The only thing good about Gideon is the VERY CONDITIONAL platinum angel effect. Also. I need you to be more specific on the other two cards.

        • Robert FakeLastName

          “as foretold”

          • Tolle

            Yeah. I misread that card. I’ll take back my comment but still say as a whole the set is lack luster.

  • God Enel

    This is pretty good. 4/4 for 4 with evasion is not insane but it’s still decent, and the cheap cycling option is awesome, and the possible scry is just an added bonus you’ll get from time to time.

    • Kahai

      For blue, this is great. Blue isn’t normally allowed to have good creatures at lower costs. So i great appreciate this card. :3

      • God Enel

        Yeah, but wizards some times goes nuts and print some of the most powerful creatures in all of magic for blue, True-Name Nemesis, Delver, Snapcaster, Clique. It doesn’t make sense to me, they at least shouldn’t have on curve or above curve bodies given how powerful their abilities are.

        • Giby86 .

          But then blue wouldn’t be the overwhelmingly best color in Magic.

          No wait, it would still be.

  • MrAptronym

    I remember when 4CMC 4/4 flier would have been great. I love this looting/cycling support, that Scry can really add up. Overall a nice creature, and will be excellent in limited.

  • dTHEb

    So if i cycle smtgh. i get to scry before I draw from the cycling because the trigger puts itself upon the stack, right?

    • Shawn Michael Diaz


  • Gavin Stanley

    Might splash blue into living end???

  • eltratzo

    And another greek sphinx. not unexpected given that all magic sphixes seem to be of the flying variant but still.

    • Kahai

      Petra Sphinx, has wings in art. No flying.

      • eltratzo

        yeah. it’s still very much a greek sphinx with it having wings and having a riddles type effect.

        • Kahai

          Well considering that most creature types user in MTG are based off DND monsters, that’s expected.

  • Soren Szilver

    living end might end up banned in modern is many more great cycling creatures are introduced this set…………..

  • Edward

    4 mana 4/4 with flying in blue with 2 relevant abilities seems amazing to me. Also with that ability maybe there can be some sort of U/B or Grixis cycling control deck. With this, Demon Of Ifnir, and Drake Haven it seems like it could be decent.

  • Han Solo II

    So many limited bombs in this format

  • Kaiser

    Happy cat become a sphinx, cool

  • Blahblahnlahbla

    Turning cycle into scry 1 then draw is big game. I really love this card.

  • Avery Standley

    Drake Haven, Baral, Curator of Mysteries along with good red and white removal equals a solid control deck

  • fistofkrosa

    nekusar is happy

  • Kahai

    Very power in Arjun. Now i want to built Arjun into storm and not chaos.

    • Kaiser

      Are you happy ?

      • Kahai

        Yes, i am. Still need more Sphinx. Preferably a pair colored legendary. another UR sphinx would be epic.

  • Deadly Berry

    This will get used A LOT.

  • Aj

    Ohhh shii…. Living End says hello!

    When GGT got sidelined AGAIN!! I thrashed my old living end at my local with some prerty good results, i am sooo looking forward to brewing that deck again its been a stale build for such a long time.

  • Robert FakeLastName

    Since discarding is part of the cost to cycle, shouldn’t that mean that the scry comes before the draw? so it is like super busted with cycling?

    • AlaAlba

      You’re right about the rules there, and it is definitely good, but I wouldn’t call it busted.
