    Sounds interesting, 7 mana is a lot though.

    Another big EDH fattie. Probably not among the best, but it's political. I'm disappointed though, because I feel that all of the rare core set Sphinxes should have 'sphinx' flavour. Fine in non-core sets, because they have specific flavour, but the generic Sphinx trope is the riddle. This offers no riddle, unlike Sphinx of Uthuun; Conundrum Sphinx; Sphinx Ambassador. How sad.

    Awesome art though.

    Sphinx of Uthuun is forever the best Sphinx. Honestly, though, ignoring the creature type this card is actually an awesome card, for EDH obviously, and for casual play.

    Lingering Souls gets even better with this guy out.

    W-Well, you can say that it's makes attacking with fliers a "tricky question" for your opponent...right? A-Am I right? Oh, who am I kidding? Your opponent will almost never attack with his/her fliers while this guy is on the field.

    EDH good stuff and limited bomb. There's nothing else to say.
