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.)

Jhoira of the Ghitu Discussion

Aright, haven't commented on this deck in a while. Pretty much took this apart, as it wasn't that great. (Sorry TypicalTimmy, I feel bad 'cause you helped and I just took it apart anyways.) But I traded one Uro to a friend (i had 2) and he built a different strategy of deck where he mostly uses Uro to ramp, not to get out permanently, and he won once by milling himself then playing Laboratory maniac. I don't know how the deck is going for him, but it's better than mine. Right now I'm playing a budget Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos themed deck and it's better than this. It's also pretty fun, and I ordered some cards online to help the deck. cough Warp World cough
Anyways, thanks Timmy for helping, and I might put this back together sometime

I recommend Jhoira of the Ghitu, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Knowledge Pool,Dream Halls, Pyxis of Pandemonium, and Paradox Haze. They seem like they would like to meet your deck. Also, maybe Goblin Test Pilot?
The only card I WOULDN'T recommend is Scrambleverse. Other cards like that are fine, but Scrambleverse is definitely NOT OKAY. XD

The only one I can get behind is Invoke Prejudice - the artist is a white supremacist and the depiction of KKK members was never OK.
The rest are weird:
- Pradesh Gypsies - how is it banned, but Jhoira of the Ghitu and all the other cards depictiping gypsies are fine?
- Cleanse is extremely far-fetched. How is Absolute Grace not implying black people lack grace and white people are shining with it? Does Righteous War fuel racial conflict because it gives protection from the opposite race?
- Stone-Throwing Devils - is it the reference to the bible or the reference to real world practises? Or is it neither of those at the same time?
- crusade and jihad - while having references to the real world, these are far from connected to what the real events do. There are 21 cards with "crusade" or "crusader" in their name, none of them banned. Heck Tivadar's Crusade literally has a goblin being tortured on a cross.
- Imprison - is this the way to honor the work of the late Christopher Rush, who made the Black Lotus and is singlehandedly responsible for much of Magic's popularity thanks to his super famous card? Even if it is OK to do, why is Oubliette not banned, despite being an extremely similar card in terms of theme. Or Wheel of Torture which directly conflates real-world game shows with torture for a laugh (it is a hilarious flavor text).
Most importantly, why now? Why after 3 weeks of protests and not 2 weeks? Why not in 2016 when similar protests were occurring? Or at any point prior to that? These have been part of the game for 20 years. How were these cards printed, when all of these were contentious topics even back then?
The bandwagon is strong with this announcement.

Jhoira of the Ghitu because I have so many bad memories playing against my friends deck which has that as commander and turning up consistent turn 6 eldrazi titans. Like the deck was nothing but counter spells and eldrazis.

After much deliberation, I have removed Jhoira of the Ghitu from this deck, which further raised its average converted mana cost from 3.35 to 3.38, but that is still a low cost, overall. I was sad to do that, because she is a great creature, but her ability is most useful when a deck has a high mana curve, and this deck has a low mana curve, so removing her made the most sense.

I have a red/blue deck that currently has 62 cards, so I need to remove two cards from it, to bring it to the ideal amount of 60 cards.
I have decided that I shall remove either Jhoira of the Ghitu or Keranos, God of Storms from the deck, but I am uncertain which is more less essential to the deck and, thus, more disposable; Jhoira has a lower cost and is always a creature, but Keranos is indestructible, and both of them have very useful abilities.
What does everyone else say about this? Which card should I remove from my deck?
