Your Blightsteel Colossus has very bad anti synergy with Moat.

I would try to cut your deck down to 60 cards for consistency.

Winterblast on The Suspense Is Real (Jhoira EDH)

1-3 hours is pretty long, so maybe winning on turn 7 is already a shortcut, lol. Games here can take long as well, but that usually happens when 2 or more combo/control decks meet and everything is locked down while people try to find a way to sneak in their own game winner without opening a hole for everyone else.

With Jhoira I usually try to make a very offensive start, for example turn 1 a land, Mana Vault and turn 2 another land, Jhoira and with the remaining 2 mana suspending something like Blightsteel Colossus or Ulamog or some other Eldrazi bastard. Opponents have two ways to go then: either they try to kill me before the suspend spell is cast, or they try to prevent the spell from resolving (or let it resolve and answer it immediately). At that point you have to find out what they are planning to do and prepare yourself. You don't really want additional suspend spells then, because Jhoira is either gone again by then or you don't need to throw another fattie into the ring...and you don't want to draw 2 or more mass removals afterwards either.

I've also tried all these time counter Manipulators and found they are not as necessary as they seem to be. Paradox Haze is perfect, sure. Also Fury Charm because it can do other stuff as well if needed and Clockspinning is also fine, also because you can meddle with Planeswalker counters too! The rest looks nice but is probably better replaced with counterspells and other protective cards.

I personally like Expropriate very much because it's one of the cards that can possibly turn around the game in your favour, even if most went bad for you until then. It also depends a lot on timing and on how well your opponents know what their decisions will do for the game state. It's also interesting to know that the decisions have to be made in turn order, starting with the active player. The first one after you will not know how the others decide in the end, even if they discuss the matter. I wouldn't worry too much about it being a boring play, because it will certainly result in political actions. Twincast on your own Expropriate make a lot of fun too, lol

I know you are looking for splashy creatures but Akroma's Memorial makes even a germ splashy. Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort this would simply be a good idea for what you want. Domri Rade ult can also make lowly germs splashy.

Blood Moon belongs to sideboards

Maybe your opponent can't play his wincon, but you don't have one.

Blightsteel Colossus X1 is not enough, not only that but you will 100% die before you have enough lands to cast it.

Nahiri, the Harbinger -8 ... ok, what if you draw Blightsteel Colossus, or worst, draw it with Dark Confidant

Too many spells that costs life, Cut the 2 or all thoughtseize.

Nevermore Belongs to sideboard, you don't even know what your opponent wil play before you first play a game.

Deck seems fun to play, but you need a reliable wincon. :)

What's good about Deathrender is that you can cheat out a big fatty after another. I feel like now the deck looks like a one-trick pony revolving around only Hellkite Overlord to win. While the card IS good, it's certainly NOT versatile and relying on only this beater to win will instantly shut you out of certain matchups.

I playtested a bit and although I could cheat out the dragon quite early on, I didn't feel like he should be your end-all be-all card alone. What if someone uses an Unsummon effect? What if someone uses a Thoughtseize effect and remove your Deathrender from your hand? would you have to wait for 9 mana to play Bringer of the White Dawn even though his effect does not guarantee you'll recover your lost artifacts since it only triggers the next turn? What if an enchantment prevents you from attacking or how do you revive the hellkite if the game drags on?

I'm not saying the deck is bad, I really love decks that cheats out stuff. I myself piloted one for a few months at my local game store and it was nasty, but I didn't rely on just one creature to win, or else it's too obvious.

There are plenty of fatties out there like Blightsteel Colossus or Inkwell Leviathan to play around removal or just to make sure if they break your dragon you have another fatty coming up right away.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite you talked about your creatures being frail earlier. This card could fix it. It would make your opponent's cards crap while yours have decent stats.

Again those are just my thoughts feel free to ignore everything I've said since what matters is your fun only :D

NB: You CAN attach Deathrender to Inkwell Leviathan but you CAN'T equip it because of the shroud effect. Which matters little because you want to attach it anyway.

This is really nice, maybe put in Thornweald Archer, deathtouch and reach is nice. Also, if your Yisan abilities let him survive long enough, you could go up to 9, which has stuff like Void Winnower, Artisan of Kozilek, Colossus of Sardia, etc. oh, also for 8, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is nice. and for 10 cmc, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, for 11, Darksteel Colossus, for 12, Blightsteel Colossus, for 13, Emrakul, the Promised End, for 14, i have no idea lol, for 15, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, and lastly, for 16, Draco. I would'nt recommend actually going up to 16, maybe stop at 10 ish.

Hey mate,

I currently have the Blightsteel Colossuses in an offer, once I hear back on the offer I will let you know!

If you're looking for big creatures to use for sideboard here are a few situational powerhouses:

Blazing Archon If you're facing someone with little to no direct removal

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite Is a solid token muncher

Blightsteel Colossus Is a brutal win-con against colors that struggles to exile or counter creatures

Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are 2 insane cards but I feel like your table would really hate you for playing any of those 2 in a casual format.

You might want to look into Lightning Greaves maybe? Could make things interesting now that you've picked up Pathrazer of Ulamog.

Also Karmic Guide could be a sexy card.

Just suggesting, I like to suggest, it's fun :D
