So I recently picked up 4 Jhoira of the Ghitu and I'm wanting to build a suspend deck. I have 4 each of Fury Charm, Jhoira's Timebug and Clockspinning. So getting the counters off wont be an issue. I guess my question is what's a good strategy with this type of deck. I'm used to playing mono black so this is a lot different from what I'm used too. I was thinking about using cards like Shock Lightning Bolt Vapor Snag Mana Leak Cancel to stall my opponent and Lotus Bloom to get Jhoira out and stuff suspended fairly quick.. Also my finishers are going to be Worldspine Wurm for singles and Worldfire with Gut Shot and Lich's Mirror for multiplayer so I can wipe the board, drop everyone down to 1 health and gut shot myself with lich's mirror out so I can start over with 7 cards and 20 health.. Easy pickings after that. lol... Anyways, I guess my question is should I go for a creature route or put more control cards in this deck?? All feedback is welcomed. Hopefully I'm on the right track with this.

I am not seeing any sort of card advantage being generated here. You have some expensive stuff, but it doesn't really generate any advantage, and stuff like Timecrafting and Furycharm will be disadvantage. Clockspinning at least has buy back?

Pretty good, Clockspinning is a huge help for the counters on squid mission though.

Thanks again for the ideas Chino90, you have some excellent points. I hadn't considered Vapor Snag but I think I'll add it. Also you're right about Unsubstantiate, I'll probably add it in place of Clockspinning. It's playtesting time!

Hi, mate. Looks like you need help with the deck and I have some spare time so lets get to it.Firstly I think you have too many creatures, some of which don't have good synergy with the deck idea, mainly Flameblast Dragon, Jhoira's Timebug, Mercurial Chemister, Rift Elemental, Shivan Sand-Mage, Timebender. Some of those remove time counters but are just weak overall.I also don't like the wall cycle, the tempo gain from blocking a big creature is negligible in a multiplayer format and your wall still dies, I'd replace those too for say a Propaganda. Archivist can be replaced with Arcanis the Omnipotent same mana from jhoira, 2 more cards.
As for the spells Clockspinning, Fury Charm, Mana Leak and Timecrafting don't go enough to warrant a place in the deck and i think you should try to replace them with some kind of draw spells or counterspells without unless they play etc. Think Counterspell or Cancel
About the land base: Faerie Conclave, Looming Spires Soaring Seacliff are simply basic taplands that will slow you down immensely. Magosi, the Waterveil Shimmering Grotto Thespian's Stage don't do enough either. If you are solid on keeping Magosi, the Waterveil you need to add something to proliferate in order to get free counters instead of keep skipping turns. maybe Contagion Engine but it won't remove counters from suspended cards so its pretty much only for this 1 card.
For spot removal you can add Chaos Warp or maybe a Pongify for something especially nasty. Otherwise counter spells should be fine if someone targets you, and you should have the mana open anyway since you dont need to cast anything on your turn.
Lastly I'd put Drift of Phantasms just for the transmute ability to get Paradox Haze. Its one of my favorite cards and in your deck it will work wonders. Hope my advices will be of use to you and if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Cheers :)

Weird deck! I like it +1
Shared Fate might be fun in here since you're playing 5 colors.
Clockspinning would also be good to put counters on your commander.
