In the comics he wanted it for general "controlling the universe" reasons I think. But it doesnt seem quite powerful enough in the MCU to do that.

I think he wants the cube to search for the gems and/or power the gems. I'm guessing the latter. They talk about the scepter being powered by the cube throughout the film. But a form of transportation isn't enough of a reason for Thanos to want the cube.

Thanos doesn't have the Tesseract. Do you mean Thanos had said portion of the Tesseract from some point in MCU history? Thousands of years before? I guess maybe... but isnt that a little more convoluted than the theory of it being the Mind Gem?
