Magosi Sphinx
3UUU

Flying

2U Draw a card and add a +1/+1 counter to Magosi Sphinx

6/6

What effect will this have on standard?

I think that it will be a game breaker one of in a Bant or Esper build.

For example, end of turn Summoning Trap into Magosi Sphinx, beat for six, protect with counters, eot draw into more counters, rinse and repeat.

In an Esper or UWr build it could be just as good.

Seems to be pretty strong. How is it better or worse them other blue finishers like Sphinx of Jwar Isle?

Discuss.

The lack of shroud means it's gonna play backseat to Sphinx of Jwar Isle. Not to mention that all blue decks are playing white; Baneslayer gets the nod over Magosi Sphinx every time.

The "Shroud plan":
With Chalice: Iona > Sphinx + Wall > Calcite Snappers > Anything without shoud
Without Chalice: Wall + Sphinx > Snappers > Iona > Anything shroudless

The "good stuff plan":
Baneslayer > Iona > Admonition Angel > Sphinx > Magosi Sphinx

I was thinking of the Sphinx as a really good one of. Obv 4 Wallet$layers are going to beat him out. But as a one of I think that it will be very good.
