Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Discussion

I find esper to be the most exciting. Because of the colors, I think it will be powerful like Atraxa (also bant), but I would like to see a version of Sen Triplets that allows you to peek at the top of each player’s deck and cast one of those spells per turn (at sorcery speed to make it more tame).
For the artwork, I think the mask woman, the girl in the swamp, and the zombie are esper, the spider is jund, and the goddess and the knight are bant.

In case you missed it the decks are
-Jund Lands Matter
-Esper "Top Deck Matters"
What could each of these decks bring to the table? What are some Izzet themes that can translate to this deck? How could it work? Who would the reprint commander be since this color isn't properly represented in artifact legends? Seems too early to reprint the only option I could think of, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain.
Bant enchantress could be a pillow fort-y deck. Lot of directions they could go with this one.
Jund Lands Matter could obviously just be a landfall-y deck but I hope they make lands matter in a different way here. Perhaps some variation of The Gitrog Monster type effects since Jund is fond of sacrificing?
Esper top deck... this is the one I am most curious to see how it could work. Your top deck matters? Opponents top deck? Casting spells from top deck? Lantern control type shenanigans?
Let me know what you think!

You need to update this deck. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Vedalken Archmage give staggering card advantage when you have Paradox Engine. The amount of card draw is even more ridiculous with the Sensei's Divining Top. The Engine also gives you infinite draw with the Top if you throw in one of these cards or combos: -Clock of Omens (Tap the Top multiple times) -Voltaic Key (Tap the Top twice) -Strionic Resonator (cast spell, tap Top, copy Engine's trigger, repeat steps 2 and 3) -Rings of Brighthearth (You know how this will work since you already have Rings) -Vedalken Orrery + Phyrexian Metamorph/Sculpting Steel (As long as you have two Divining Tops, you'll actually be able to get through mana floods no problem.) -Vedalken Orrery + Vedalken Archmage/Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain (put multiple draw effects on the stack by casting spells and tapping the top in response to one another.) The only other thing to mention here is that Crucible of Worlds is completely unfair with the artifact lands + Krark-Clan Ironworks, or ANY land if you have the lattice out. It also lets you abuse that Inventors' Fair you've got, as well as your fetch lands.

While I think "ruined" is a bit too harsh a way of putting it, I do agree that the overly spellslinging-centered theme of today's is not to my taste. As someone's who's favorite color is , it feels weird that its enemy colors are more appealing to combine it with than its ally ones (compare e.g. Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge to Karador, Ghost Chieftain).
Still, it's not all doom and gloom; we do have e.g. The Locust God, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius (the Izzet parun no less!) and last but not least Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, for which Wizards themselves commented that it was strange that there was no commander that cared about artifacts. Here's hoping the coming Rav set will make Izzet a more diverse a guild.

I recently asked about deciding between Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Seton, Krosan Protector and decided on the former. Well it turns out I had a bit more trade than expected and can build either one. Karametra I have built already while Seton needs just a few more key pieces (aka druids). Reason I'm asking is because they feel similar as in ramping fast into big fatties or big druid swarm. Seton also allows for more combos while Karametra opens up .

Well I've been playing Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and I just find it incredibly fun.
In some cases yes I can go off turn 4 or five.
even when I don't win the game just to have a turn where I can cast 8 to 10 and in some cases being able to bounce artifacts back to my hand in the case of Rebuild and then playing 20 cards a turn.
it's just really fun

I'm having trouble deciding between Seton, Krosan Protector and Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain cheerios edition. Both decks are fast and can be combo oriented. However, Seton isn't as dependent on the commander other than the first few turns as he allows for sudo haste with druids. Jhoira on the other hand seems a little more "jank" (but really isn't) and is entirely dependent on Jhoira for CA. Granted she has the potential to end games on turn 4-5 at the latest.
This will be a budget build as I'm melting another deck I don't care for somewhere around $150-$250 sans the staples/lands I already own for both. Any input would be much appreciated.

Cut inexorable tide you aren't going to be casting a ton of spells just a few, unless you're gonna go the paradox engine route, either way if you're trying to get extra counters I'd play Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. It's a great creature that does a lot for cheap.
Also cut some sorceries, you don't need more than like 5 board wipes.
As far as some cards you should definitely have...
- Oath of Nissa
- Oath of Ajani
- Captain Sisay
- Arena Rector
- Rings of Brighthearth
- Shalai, Voice of Plenty
Also are you insane not playing The Chain Veil in a walker deck? It's 1,000% core to the deck.
