Fury Charm Discussion

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.

Fun deck! I too have a Goblin deck, so I know how fun they are to play! I have some tips regarding your cards if you're interested. You seem to have 62 cards in the deck, it's never a good idea to have more than 60 card - consistency is king! In general you want a curve that is as low as possible, since you need to keep a pressure all the time. If you don't win turn 4 or 5, you will probably loose the game.
The lands look good, what you need is red mana and you've got it. A tapped land can be dangerous since you need to keep a pressure! I'm trying to run Contested War Zone in my goblin deck, it's risky since it only produce colorless mana, but it's +1/0 ability can be game winning.
Card you can consider adding, price tag in (parenthesis):
Goblin Guide - (Expensive), but really good!
Foundry Street Denizen - Can get really big really quick, (cheap).
Legion Loyalist - Devastating against token heavy decks, first strike can be really good if your goblins are buffed. (Kind of expensive).
Goblin Piledriver - Get really big, game winner with Legion Loyalist's trample, (average price), well worth the cost!
Goblin Rabblemaster - Creates you a massive goblin army, constant pressure, one of these can totally dominate the battlefield, two of them wins you the game. Recently reprinted, so it's (cheap) for what it does. Great if Quest for the Goblin Lord.
Lightning Bolt - 4x.
Goblin Bushwhacker - One of the best one/two drops for goblins, (cheap).
Warren Instigator - Haven't tried myself but he can be really powerful. (Average).
Mogg War Marshal - I like it more than cards like Krenko's Command, since it gives you a bit more resistance against sweepers. It's also a great gobling to sacrifice for Goblin Grenade.
Additional card to consider, mainly for sideboard:
Cards I'd cut:
Obelisk of Urd - In my experience, Obelisk of Urd is rarely a good card aggro or modern in general. Too expensive, or forces you to not attack a turn if you want it early.
Arms Dealer - Too slow, isn't a threat in it's own.
Goblin Kaboomist - Too unreliable.
Frenzied Goblin - There are better 1-drops.
Fury Charm - Not really a good card.
Hope you appreciate the tips and make sure to ask if you have any questions!

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 :)

While I definitely like Jhoira and all the shenanigans and mana-cheating she can allow, I'm not quite sure I see a theme for the deck as a whole. Is it a spell deck that tries to suspend multiple spells at a time for a Storm-like explosive turn later on? An engine for cheating out the Eldrazi titans? I think you need to define and narrow your focus a little.
-1 Oblivion Sower I just feel like there's no support for his ability here as it is, and you have no other processors, so he just seems like a vanilla fatty with a mill clause.
-1 Twisted Image & -1 Pyroblast These just seem to be serving the purpose of less efficient removal spells or incredibly conditional counters. It's all up to your meta/playgroup, but I think you already have better options.
-1 Sphinx's Tutelage I haven't played with this card, but I don't really see a reason for you to include a mill card in here.
Clockspinning, Fury Charm, Rift Elemental, Timecrafting, Delay All these cards would let you mess around with both your own suspended cards and other's, allowing you to craft the perfectly timed turn.
Firemind's Foresight Lets you search for the perfect instant-speed options, AT INSTANT SPEED!
Hope this helps, and good luck!

@CaptSillva Except for Coax from the Blind Eternities (my playgroup uses sideboards for wishes so I just have a sideboard instead), all of these cards used to be in the deck. I took out the time counter removal because I think they fill the same role as tempo control cards, like Cyclonic Rift or Wash Out. Both kinds of cards help you to survive until your wipes drop, but the tempo cards are also good defensive options when you don't have a suspend up. I do have Timecrafting and Fury Charm in the deck, but I think they're just much more efficient and versatile options that the other time counter stuff. The reason I don't run Artisan of Kozilek or It That Betrays is because they are poor bombs to finish the game with alone. With the exception of Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Omniscience, which give huge resource advantages, I think that the best wipes which depend on other cards to set them up are not worth the slot. I have considered adding more eldrazi, and these would be on the top of the list, but it would be because I wanted a higher bomb-to-enabler ratio. Deep-Sea Kraken has the same problem. Yeah, it's value with Jhoira, but it's not going to win me the game alone and I have few other ways to help me win just by dealing damage. None of these are bad suggestions, and I'm glad that you made them. I have noticed that my deck lacks a lot of what seem to be Jhoira staples on Tappedout, and I'm happy to talk about why I chose to diverge.
