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.)

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:

18ths on Five-Mizzet Re-experienced

1 month ago

Update 1:

I noticed that my initial list lacked some ramp. Some cards also underperformed, so here's the changes:

Deathsprout replaces Mortify - Not being able to remove enchantments is not an issue as there's still some powerful interaction. The ability to ramp while removing stuff justifies additional cost.

Torrent of Souls replaces Grave Upheaval - A bit cheaper with an additional upside of pumping all creatures so you have payoff for creating all those tokens. Worth sacrificing that basic landcycling.

Camaraderie replaces Gelatinous Genesis - I found Genesis to be a massive win more and conditional card. It gets really good IF you manage to get a lot of exp counters and put Mizzix on the table. Camaraderie is a solid card that does a lot of stuff this deck wants to achieve.

Kiora's Follower replaces Incubation Druid - Despite +1/+1 counters subtheme, I found that it's actually pretty hard to put them on Druid. I also thought it can give mana of any color. Follower is similiar to Druid, but is fetchable, can untap Gates or Deathrite Shaman when I need them or give pseudo-vigilance to creatures.

Astral Cornucopia replaces Commander's Sphere , Mirrodin's Core replaces Mountain - Not putting them in a deck with proliferate theme was an obvious oversight.

Jhoira of the Ghitu replaces Nin, the Pain Artist - I put Nin as a cheap multicolored card that can be also valuable later. But the value than Nin provides is quite expensive, and using it as removal is even worse. Old Jhoira is also cheap and cheating stuff for low cost is always great.

I'm also looking for cuts to put Ramos, Dragon Engine (put him along with Ezuri and live the dream) and Maw of the Obzedat here (great payoff for tokens and costless sac engine)

K1ngMars on S.o.s Generals!!!

Between the three, I'd say the fairest general would be Kozilek, the Great Distortion , I would go with him. Although Eldrazi tribal is a viable option with him at the helm, I think you should take a look at another possible iteration of Eldrazi tribal with a Izzet general, Jhoira of the Ghitu , obviously without green (and land ramp, that is). If you're interested, take a look:

K1ngMars on Forgotten Mechanics You'd Like to ...

2 months ago

While more than a simple mechanic, Experience Counters commanders in allied colors in a new precon would be nice, even though these wouldn't be forgotten mechanics.

I'd like to see some more Tribal Spells that take advantage from actually being played in their tribal, awarding us with some bonus effect, whipe still being playable without the tribe, but without bonus.

I'd like the comeback of my favourite mechanic, Suspend, as seen on Jhoira of the Ghitu . If not that, more cards that work with time counters, as we've seen with As Foretold , that can combo off with much older cards like Timecrafting .

Well, if you want to cast stuff for free, I could have a solution.

Jhoira of the Ghitu has been one of my favourite Commanders for some years and trust me, being in the position of "possibly dropping Emrakul turn 4" is always fun.

My deck, specifically, is not built only around Jhoira , but is instead packed full of all the other "cast stuff for free" effects I could find, in addition to having some countermagic. It's the ultimate High Risk - High Reward deck I have, and it's truly fun to pilot. Check it out: Drag from the Future.

Madcookie on Jori "Nothing to see here" En

@emaskGlad you've liked the deck, mate and as for the commander to be honest that was my idea as well! I started the list initially with Jhoira of the Ghitu at the helm to suspend high mana draw/tutor spells for , but then I thought to myself "People will think I'm playing huge indestructible eldrazi with Obliterate sprinkled in and will nuke Jhoira as soon she sets foot on the field" (only half right as I don't own any eldrazi :D). Then I remembered how nobody bothers to touch low profile commanders and Jori En, Ruin Diver got more and more appealing :D.

P.S. I think I've only seen one Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest list and that one was based around artifact voltron, rather than spellslinging. Would be interesting to see your approach to it. Cheers! :)

I_TappedWrong, I absolutely love It That Betrays , but I don't think I have many cards in this deck that cause my opponents to sacrifice their permanents. I really like that combo though, and might have to try it out in my Jhoira of the Ghitu deck. Thanks for the suggestion!

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.
