If I had a nickel for every time my opponent said "play (insert any removal spell here) on sphinx...goddamit, he has shroud!", I could buy another copy of the deck he's in.

I'm new to magic and i bought the started deck with this guy in it and he kicks ass. The day i bought that, i also bought 8 booster packs and got Djinn of Wishes :). Awesome combo, my buddy who plays plains still always whoops me though. He has a lot more cards than me, but still, he shouldn't win every time. I think plains is ridiculously overpowered.

This guy is a freaking bomb. A 5/5 shrouded flyer for 6 mana, 4 colourless? It should take 30 seconds to see how good he is. If he gets out ok, he just sits there going "ok, you're dead in 4 turns and all your clever-dicky removal is completely worthless". He can be dealt with - universal removal, vampire nighthawk - but in an awful lot of spots he's lethal. The final ability is nice as well; knowing what's coming up at any time is great, particularly with Jace Beleren out there feeding me extra cards. The amount of times I've seen a doom blade/path to exile sitting uselessly in mind opponent's hand (thanks to telepathy)...LOL.

List of single cards in standard that kill this:
Day of Judgment
Rockcaster Platoon
...And that's all. Gatekeepers of Malakir, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Prized Unicorn, Infest, Volcanic Fallout, Pyroclasm, Jund Charm, Caldera Hellion, Lavaball Trap, or Magma Pheonix could all do the job, but you'd need multiple of them or some other helping cards. Long story short: It's not going to happen. It's Wrath or nothing.

This card has some trippy reminder text. It seems like it should be worded differently.

Is it a static ability?

This card is so blue, the artwork is blue, and his abilitys are really blueish!
