Nice against monsters and not-so-smart Gods and titans.
8/9, 4 activation cards, Block, for just 3RP, what's not to like? Just the 7 vitality isn't all that high.

On top of all things mentioned already, she is also a flyer with block.

That strikes me as extremely usefull, especially considering her strenght. Makes her very good at keeping enemies from getting in rage of her god or from reaching omphalos.

Is there an issue with the first post ? Dashboard and mini are not displayed.

The "strategy" value of heroes and gods is usually not so high (let's say 1 sometimes 2). For the special heroes with a high strategy value, it's the combat value which are average (with the exception of Bellerophon and veteran Achilles).
So the 8/9 combat values of the Sphinx are good even when facing heroes and gods. Just don't pick it when your opponent has chosen Athena, Zeus or Hephaestus...

Usually, block is described as not working with flying unit (for moving out anyway); should it be different with a flying block unit ? Cool

A flying block unit seems great to me. Very mobile, can block a flanking unit before it can get into position.

I like to know if it can block other flyers however.

Not likely, as the rule for Block states it doesn't work on fliers. If Monolith intend on making it work against all units, they will replace Block with a power that has the same effects as Block, but on every unit.
