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

Abaques on I know I made something ...

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

Rhadamanthus First of all, thank you so much for your answer, and for sharing your wisdom with this noob girl.

Well, this is marvellous... just one more question to make sure I got the right idea before going like crazy over this with my deck.

a) Just as with Primal Amulet  Flip, the kicker is also affected by Goblin Electromancer?

If so... Fight with Fire kicker cost, after resolving from suspension (Jhoira of the Ghitu) and with the above cards in play would only cost ?

If so, I am going to pass out xD

So, pretend for a second that I have Primal Amulet  Flip in play, and that Fight with Fire was suspended by Jhoira of the Ghitu.

a) When I cast Fight with Fire with no mana cost, can I pay de kicker cost?
b) If so, this cost is affected by Primal Amulet  Flip?
c) If I were to kick the spell, and the make a copy of it, would it be the kicked or normal version of it?
d) If I pay the kicker cost of Fight with Fire with Primal Wellspring, would it be copied?

Thank you in advance

Lets say I used Jhoira of the Ghitu to suspend Apocalypse. If I were to cast Timecrafting on someone else's turn to remove the remaining counters, would Apocalypse be casted after Timecrafting resolves? If not when would it be able to be casted? If I did it with a creature would it be the same thing?

Jhoira, Ascended Master

Legendary Planeswalker- Jhoira

+1 Create a 1/1 Colorless construct creature token with ": Remove a time counter from a suspended permanent."

0 Until your next turn you may draw a card whenever an artifact enters the battlefield under your control.

-1 Exile an artifact from your hand: Put 3 time counters on the exiled artifact. If it doesn't have suspend it gains suspend.

-7 Put all artifacts in suspend onto the battlefield under your control. You may create a 1/1 thopter creature token for each artifact put onto the battlefield this way.

Jhoira, Ascended can be your Commander



Jhoira is one of my favorite Izzet cards out there, so I went for a combination of Jhoira of the Ghitu and Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. Man, this card would be so cool.

Challenge: We finally got an Esper zombie with C18, so make another esper commander that cares about zombies (can be a Planeswalker or creature).
