Jhoira of the Ghitu

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

, Remove a nonland card in your hand from the game: Put four time counters on the removed card. If it doesn't have suspend, it gains suspend. (At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter from that card. When the last is removed, play it without paying its mana cost. If it's a creature, it has haste.)

Jhoira of the Ghitu Discussion

Chandrian on Best Izzet Control commander?

I recommend Jhoira of the Ghitu as her ability allows you to cast some big dumb threats for a super cheap cost, allowing you to leave mana open for counterspells and so on. She is also cheap to cast, so it won't hurt as much should she die a couple times.

Hi! Im really enjoying looking at your deck! +1 So First off I like the way this is going, My first suggestion is more of a formatting thing than anything and that's just if youre playing combo and want help just to list your combos so that people can help put in supporting cards. Second, Im not a competitive player but I know that these comments are correct that the game is either over/locked turn 4 or so, So what I have to say is possibly try effects like Braids, Conjurer Adept While she gives them advantage (And this is more like suggesting her ability rather than her) she lets you combo off early while allowing you or others at your table to possibly stop another persons combo. Another good example of this effect that in my opinon is better is Jhoira of the Ghitu she is able to put pressure and a clock for your combos the turn counter might seem bad but in reality it gives you planning time or might draw attention away from another combo you might have.

I really like the combo of Omniscience and Enter the Infinite. I have an EDH deck that uses Jhoira of the Ghitu that could suspend both cards for 2 mana each. I already have Stormtide Leviathan in my deck and I will have to add Archetype of Imagination. I think my friends would stop playing against me if I had your deck. +1 from me.

That manabase looks a little too beefy. You might want to look at mana dorks or another way to generate for Eternal Dominion and such, or play a more creature-focused deck with your suspend mechanic only needing 3 mana to come into play. Jhoira of the Ghitu would run really well with heavy hitters such as Eldrazi Titans, and I might even be willing to part with one or two of mine if we reached an agreement.

Honestly I know that its not on your list but Jhoira of the Ghitu is perfect for a beginner. All you do is throw in all your biggest Red/blue?artifacts and control/burn cards. It's mana base isn't too bad and you can use her ability multiple times late game.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but:

Gut Shot has no upside as opposed to a normal lightning bolt after you've cast Worldfire due to your one life.

If you want an alternate win-condition, assuming you suspend it with Jhoira of the Ghitu, Near-Death Experience is significantly better than Barren Glory since you won't have to time it perfectly.

As far a Firebolt, it is 1. not legal in modern, and 2. no better than a Lightning Bolt, since will be exiled when you cast Worldfire, and it costs 5 mana to flash back anyway, either requiring 14 mana or drawing 5 lands after worldfire.

I would not recommend playing Counterlash because sorcery is probably the least potent card type in modern, and a 6 mana counter is very bad.

Overall, seems interesting with some more work.

I wouldn't mind seeing Teysa become a planeswalker, but I doubt she would leave Ravnica. I'm trying to think of a character that would both be a cool planeswalker and actually leave their home plane. Jhoira of the Ghitu would also be a cool walker.

Qolorful Hanna might be a tad too dead to be a planeswalker, but I could honestly see Gerrard becoming one if they did Weatherlight crew.
