Sphinx of the Chimes

 
Show

5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).


Ok for draft reasons this guy is basically Mahamoti Djinn.   I have never once gotten to use his draw ability in draft.

Being the Djinn though he is a big threat in limited.  A 5/6 flyer demands removal or you are going to lose quickly.

4.0

Like CG said, he is basically just Mahamoti Djinn, but that is still really good in the set. In UW fliers he is a good finisher as their aren't many big flying bodies. 
4.0. I once could have activated him by pitching two Auger sprees. I choose not to.
Check out my cube!

Occassionally when catering, I've been put the task of arranging Fruit and Cheese or Grilled Vegetable platters. More than once a high class buffet has started with the mark of Phyrexia upon it. Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.

In the PTQ Sealed Event I was sitting near someone who drew 12 cards in one turn off the Sphinx. But my personal experience with the Sphinx has been with him in the role of Mahamoti Djinn, which is worth 4.0 in this set.
4. He dodges Explosive Impact, which is pretty baller.

I have used his ability one time. I would also go with 4.0
4 for me. Big body. Sad face. Looks like he's waiting for the Sphinx of Trumpets to holla back.
