Jhoira of the Ghitu

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

, Exil a nonland card from your hand: Put four time counters on the exiled 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, cast it without paying its mana cost. If it's a creature, it has haste.)

Yes you will take damage when it comes out of suspension if the Eidolon of the Great Revel is still on the battlefield when that happens, when you cast Rift Bolt .

However, it is a 3 CMC spell. That you didn't pay the mana cost does not change the CMC.

If you somehow suspended Lava Axe (perhaps with Jhoira of the Ghitu 's help) when you remove the last counter from Lava Axe and cast it, you are casting a CMC 5 spell. That you paid zero to cast Lava Axe doesn't change the CMC. The Eidolon of the Great Revel will not hurt you.

Obviously Jhoira of the Ghitu works the best as she can allow you to cast cards from your hand anyway, plus you'd have access to Future Sight and Magus of the Future which are the same card but better.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots , Nikya of the Old Ways , or Neheb, the Eternal are other choices as they make casting lots of spells much more stream-lined.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent is a good choice if there's a card you can't play off the top of your deck as she gives you the ability to easily remove it. Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a similar option as you're given a useable shuffle effect to change what's on top of your library if you run into an extra land.

BMHKain on Jhoira's Hidden Jet Black Chaos Code

In case anyone still cares, I still need 6 cuts to 100. I want some ideas for some of the most Chaotic cards in Colors. Unless you also have suggestions for what to add for the most Chaos-Induced games, What would you guys cut? & yes, I already know the current CMDR is Jhoira of the Ghitu , but I'll reset the whole set of lists of mine when I'm fully done (Besides the only Pauper Deck still in the works...). I hope you understand at this time... :/

O-Kagachi declares Multiversal Kami War II on us!

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


While one would run as the Identity for a Spirit Tribal Deck, I actually wanted to see how good O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as a Tribe Leader. Anyway, just removed the need for the Arcane Spells, & found that Intruder Alarm actually seems better than I thought. They'll be added. The only other help I need now is to make some cuts for a Jhoira of the Ghitu Chaos Deck(The Chaos Deck that's not based on Coin-Flips; I'll update them when I'm done w/ all the decks). Besides this, I'll handle stuff still being made from there. If anyone has any opinions on this, let me know, I mean, Karador, Ghost Chieftain is an incredible CMDR back then, & is in already...

Thanks again thus far! Though I now feel like changing the topic name for the rest of what is needed... Should I? It's no longer about the Arcane/ Cryptic Gateway thing that's already resolved...

I love a good chaos deck and I really like some of your card choices, but it does seem like you're going in a few different directions at the same time. You seem to have a mix of wheel effects (Wheel of Fate, group hug (Mana Cache), group slug (War's Toll) and general chaos (Teferi's Realm) going on. I think I would try to focus more on one or two of those themes.

I think with any chaos deck one of your key decisions you have to make is if you even want a win condition. I have a chaos deck (Chaotic Neutral Goats) where the where the best win condition is getting lucky with Scrambleverse, but I don't play that deck to win, I play to create crazy game states and I consider it a 'win' if the game state gets so crazy that everyone agrees to call a draw. I also only play that deck when everyone at the table wants that kind of game.

I think good adds for your deck might be:

Perplexing Chimera - It makes everyone have to think twice about every spell they cast.

Grip of Chaos - Targeted removal? Hah!

Scrambleverse - This can actually be a win-con if you're lucky enough!

Thieves' Auction - A fun way to balance out everyone's board states.

Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation - Being able to drop the chaos unexpectedly is really great.

If you're looking for a different commander and you'd like to stay Izzet I'd recommend Jhoira of the Ghitu to power out some of those expensive spells earlier.

Also, thanks for sharing your deck! I really like Custody Battle but I'd never seen it before!

I_TappedWrong, I like the idea for Jhoira of the Ghitu, I already have Armageddon in the deck and it does make sense so after testing it as is, I'll put in Jhoira to test out how she plays in the deck and remove a creature that is underperforming. Thanks for the suggestions!

Put in a Jhoira of the Ghitu as like the person that could call in air strikes, but make her even better and play land destruction like Armageddon and just rain down with the flyers after that lol
