Jhoira's Familiar

Artifact Creature — Bird

Historic spells you cast cost less to cast. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

You're right in a technical sense, for sure. I added him because he's a legendary Kraken. I have a legendary Leviathan and Octopus as well. More of a flavor thing.

I have my Inkwells in an Artifact deck with Etherium Sculptor , Jhoira's Familiar and Foundry Inspector .

Thanks for looking!

There doesn't seem to be a combo going on... you could try doing things with Historic spells and birds

  1. Jhoira's Familiar -gets Legendary and Artifacts spells out quicker
  2. Aven Wind Mage
  3. Senate Courier
  4. Aesthir Glider
  5. Artificer's Assistant -gives you some _Scry_ action
  6. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle

Jhoira's Familiar and Foundry Inspector could also find a place among all these artifacts, depending on how far off of theme you want to go.

For cheap counterspells that aren't listed in your maybe board you can use Dispel , Rebuff the Wicked , Turn Aside , Unsubstantiate , Spell Pierce . Negate , Arcane Denial , Countersquall , and Imp's Mischief .

For Esper colors, there isn't much you can do for fast ramp aside from relying on faster lower costed mana rocks to makes it go faster. The other alternative route to this is going for a cost reducer route like using cards like Helm of Awakening , Jhoira's Familiar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Cloud Key , Etherium Sculptor , Foundry Inspector , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , and The Immortal Sun .

Hope that helps!

Just a few suggestions.

Daretti, Scrap Savant might actually be a much better commander for this deck.

Also, you may want to consider the following cards:

Additional Tutors never hurts. You may want to consider: Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Long-Term Plans, Reshape and Gamble.

Also, Sensei's Divining Top + Helm of Awakening or any other reducer such as Cloud Key, Semblance Anvil, Etherium Sculptor, Herald of Kozilek, Foundry Inspector and Jhoira's Familiar is amazing because it allow you to use Top to draw in response to Jhoira's draw trigger so you get 2 draws.

Words of Wind is another amazing card in Jhoira because you can draw your deck with it if you use it in conjunction with Mana Crypt, Mana Vault or Sol Ring if you have a reducer on the battlefield.

You can take a look at my Jhoira deck here: Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain - Storm
