I have to say, that bright red skull looks really, really awesome on this card.

I understand chainsmoker's comment as "red and green has no easy answer to this creature so why bother give it protection from those colors", I'm merely reminding him that red/green has the most artifact hate cards and that is what makes this sphinx's protections relevant.

Behold, the sphinx of the bloody skull.

No one I've played has answered that question yet either...

I decided to pit the Fire and Lightning premium deck against the Graveborn deck.
Graveborn trounced F&L 4 out of 5 games. The lost game was due to mana flood.
Guess which card was my number one Entomb target?

Super powerful, yet also well balanced (unlike Ms. Baneslayer)-
three mana colors makes *all* the difference.

Of course, that's kind of irrelevant when the idea here is to cheat it into play ;-)

EDIT- Incoming Dark Ascension card could potentially dethrone/supplement this card in some decks,
including reanimator:

Drogskol Reaver
Creature - Spirit
Flying, Double Strike, Lifelink
Whenever you gain life, draw a card.

Color me impressed- it's not as hardy as the Sphinx here,
but drawing one or two cards pretty much every time it attacks or blocks
(thank you, Double Strike!) is a HUGE plus.
The CC is steep, but this is clearly great for reanimation-
now I'm even more curious what new types of reanimation we might see.

Very hard to kill. White removal can get the job done on this thing most the time. But even then its very likely that this think will be smacking you in the face.
