Sphinx of Jwar Isle A.I.

Marek reported:

It seems that computer peeks at its library with Sphinx of Jwar Isle much more frequently than needed - sometimes it looks like it's stalling

I should note that if BotArena will eventually implement playing with top card of library revealed, Sphinx of Jwar Isle should be done as a variant of that ability, making the controller able to see top card of his library at all times (except certain moments during resolution of spells/abilities, as detailed in the Comprehensive Rules).

I believe the Sphinx's ability should let you look at the top card *any* time, including during the resolution of spells and abilities.

Edit: Looking at the rulings on Gatherer, it looks like the only time you can't look is if the top card of your library changes while you're casting a spell or activating an ability. I confirmed that in the Comp Rules and couldn't find anything regarding that ability and the resolution of anything.

I just want to note that we have Goblin Spy now.

This behaviour is the reason why its ability is limited to a couple of activation times
This is not a real bug. AI likes activate abilities with "0" in its activation cost every time. It must think, zero is cheap, and cheap is good

Yes, it's definitely one of the evaluation rules.
The other is that a card on the battlefield is better then in hand. The result is playing Oblivion Rings when the opponent has no non-land pernaments and exiling own creature.

that would be changed to a more optime evaluation
