BMHKain on A Primordial God needs your ...

Alright. 4 More potential cuts: Mind Stone , Sturmgeist , Aeon Chronicler & a 3rd Handsize Matters creature. This is it. Whateven I can manage to cut here, I'll offer a suggestion for stuff that does deserve Garruk's Deathblow Chop to the point of getting to the Promised Land of 100 Cards. Also, as for Finale of Devastation I'll just ask: does it also apply to stuff w/ Variable Power and/or Toughness? In this case, Hands Matter Stat Creatures. If not, I guess it's okay to cut? I'm just wondering from you, bushido_man96...

Hi there, concerning the "time manipulation" ( Clockspinning and the like) you've already got everything in here as far as I know. One thing I find myself always happy with is the two rare suspend creatures from Planar Chaos, Detritivore and Aeon Chronicler , since they both offer a pretty usefull effect while they're ticking down in exile. Also Deep-Sea Kraken will enter the battlefield in no time when suspended with Jhoira, although maybe a bit underwhelming when compared against other stuff. I like to keep it in my build to take care of opposing planeswalkers though. You can check it out if you like to. Cheers! When Worlds Collide (EDH)

I was a fan of Aeon Chronicler back in the day. It's crazy slow, but it does draw X cards.

Please link your cards using double brackets--it makes it a bit easier to see what cards you're discussing:

[[chamber sentry]]

[[Walking Ballista]]

[[Tempered Steel]]

Chamber Sentry

Walking Ballista

Tempered Steel

As a general rule, when a spell or ability asks you to pay , and you get to decide what is, you can choose to pay 0.

Exceptions, such as Aeon Chronicler's suspend ability, will be specifically stated on the card.

Here, you will be able to cast both Chamber Sentry and Walking Ballista for . If you cast them for and do not have Tempered Steel in play, they will die as a result of having 0 toughness.

It's important to note, Tempered Steel does not give either +1/+1 counters; it's a static ability increasing power and toughness. As such, both Walking Ballista and Chamber Sentry will be 2/2s without any counters with which you could activate their abilities.

Didn't want to include Aeon Chronicler? That's pretty much the only budget card I can think of for this deck.

And you'll need to forgo Bringer of the Blue Dawn; it counts as a five-colour card, so it cannot be in an Izzet deck.

If you want to view a very mean, not at all budget, Jhoira deck, please check out mine.

I somehow missed that you already had curiosity in the deck but another card I find amazing is Aeon Chronicler. It has won me so many games with Niv and flied under the radar.

Also as mentioned above, Psychosis Crawler is amazing with Niv.

AllhydeNoJekyll on Jhoira, Master of Suspense

I'm not entirely sure what theme you are going for, but I think some of your categoriesneed to be more focused towards a set of win-cons, and about half of each be able to functionwithout Jhoira explicitly.

  • I'm fairly certain Matt had said that the Chance Encounter with Frenetic Efreet doesn't work, but I'm not sure about that. Even if that's not the case, why this particular combo? I feel as if there are stronger ones to go in Jhoira

  • Usually people use Firemind's Foresight to search up specific win conditions, or powerful X cost cards. I'm not seeing a whole lot for you to search for in this matter.

  • On that note, I think you should be really careful about your optimism with suspending things with your commander. Average Case Scenario you will play her with five mana up, suspend one thing in response to someone immediately trying to kill her, or she won't hit at all due to counterspells. A lot of your spells take for granted the fact that she will always be on the field like an enchantment you start with (see your draw category). Our meta usually consists of heavy boardWipes and consistent counterspells you can thank your boyfriend and Luke for that.

|Cards that must be cut|These are cards that are bad enough they shouldn't be in the deck at all or they have an equivalent card that is also on theme. - For example, there are a wide array of counterspells that are infinitely better/cheaper than Cancel, but Delay is one mana less and lets you control the board in your favor while being incredibly on theme (Delay a Board Wipe and remove the suspend counters, or add more as you need, etc other uses). In any case there are a wide variety of cards that should replace Cancel. Eg., 'strictly better Dissolve, Dissipate, Disallow, Izzet Charm etc.

- Thirst- Izzet Cluestone- Reduce to Dreams- Divination- Nevinyrral's Disk    - I've sort of brought my grade for this card down a little bit in recent times, the fact      that it can't save you on a draw really hurts the card and the purpose of boardWipes.       Still a great card, but not as powerful in decks that aren't focused on recurring       artifacts.
  • You have Mana Geyser listed under Ramp, when really this effect is called a 'Ritual', named for the card Dark Ritual. Besides semantics, it's a great card, but shouldn't be considered when determining how much Ramp you have in the deck. Without it, 8-9 should be more than enough anyways. As a side note, consider Reiterate, it can go infinite with Mana Geyser.

  • You have several components to Mill Combos, which is a set of great of powerful effects, but to devote to the strategy itself of mill would require a subset of 15-30 cards in that nature. Unless that is your desire, it would be best to remove non-combo pieces such as Fraying Sanity.

  • Sphinx of the Final Word is not a counterspell, but is under the category of 'counters'.

|Cards I do not understand the purpose of, but are neat|- Sphinx of the Final Word- Clone Legion- Control Magic- Eternal Dominion- Telepathy
