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.)

If you play combo, Arjun, the Shifting Flame is better because he will dig for your combo pieces (and can dig for answers to removal, etc).
If you're "just" playing goodstuff, I would go for Jori En, Ruin Diver because she grants you card advantage, which is very important for EDH.
If a lot of your goodstuff cards are very expensive you could even consider Jhoira of the Ghitu

I tested this against my Red/Blue Control Jhoira of the Ghitu deck, and while it held it's own, the inability to eliminate enchants was what messed your deck up in the end, as I kept out a Power Leak all game, and the mana costs ended up stalling you out REALLY hard. On top of my Enigma Drake and stacking instants and Sorceries in my graveyard, the card that destroyed my Power Leak ended up summoning Deep-Sea Kraken and that right there pretty much ended things, 6/6 unblockable and 13/4 flying preeeetty much ended things.
Some minor tweaks, some Disenchants or even counter-spells and this deck would be even better!

So I fill either Grixis or Izzet is the best color scheme for a storm based deck, a heavy spell slinging deck that typically will find a fun and crazy way to combo off in one huge blast of a turn. I want to avoid extra turn BS, but infinite combos are ok [Basically if it is an easy way to win quick my group is ok, but if your taking extra turns to dig to win, that is unfun]
So what commander options do I have? I can think of only 4 that make sense:
~Mizzix of the Izmagnus: She reduces the cost of the spells, meaning more spells for less mana, but if i get a way to get infinite mana then she serves no purpose.
~Arjun, the Shifting Flame: Letting me cycle my hand with every spell, quickly drawing through my deck to find answers and storm big
~Melek, Izzet Paragon: Probably one of the original spell slinging commanders that comes to mind, saddly his copies don't add to stack, but combined with top I can look att he top three and pick the best spell to cast.
~Jhoira of the Ghitu: This is the only deck I would consider using a FEW extra turn card in, only because I would almost straight up skip those turns to burn off some suspend counters, though clock spinning also helps remove counters...anyway, i use mana to stack a ton of spells into suspend, then let them all come out at the same time to go nuts.
Also since this is a storm based deck I plan to abuse this with Possibility Storm, cast Mind's Desire from hand to let the original return to deck and still get all the storm copies :3
Anyway...suggestions? Maybe a commander I forgot, or a color that works better?

So I removed Diviner's Wand and replaced it with As Foretold. Diviner's wand was typically shot down the moment it hit the board so it ended up being basically useless. I'm hoping As Foretold doesn't fall to the same fate (although it probably will).
Also, does anyone have recommendation for what to take out for Jhoira of the Ghitu? I just came to realize that her synergy with Arjun is much better than I thought it would be since I can suspend the spells I need without having to cycle to hand and potential save another spell from being put on the bottom.

As a (new) Jhoira player, I personally think your deck is a lot of fun to play against, however, I did notive that Jhoira of the Ghitu has been listed twice- once under the creatures slot, and again as a commander. Just letting you know.
Also, I just realized how great training Grounds are in the Jhoira deck. Thanks!

Izu_Korasu I was thinking from deciding from between a Surrak Dragonclaw Eldrazi deck, a Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos deck, a Thromok the Insatiable devour deck, or a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons -1/-1 deck.
