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 .

  • new ideas are use Timecrafting and green to ramp and get the deck to go off
  • use Dust of Moments and Shivan Sand-Mage to remove a lot of counters at once.
  • use Jhoira's Timebug and Rift Elemental

  • Now my understanding is that the last one will be the slowest. Now its a toss up between the first two. I can ramp and do stuff which should be effective, or I can go the slow route and do more of a control like match up. Where Curse of the Cabal could be played. If i sac a lot of my stuff anyways It will hurt me a lot less than my oppunet. Then I just grind the game out.

The deck seems fun but i have a few concerns. Why include Timecrafting and Jhoira's Timebug? I don't see anything with suspend or that uses time counters. And although Render Silent seems to fit well, you have no way to pay for its white mana requirement.

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?

Hi, mate. Looks like you need help with the deck and I have some spare time so lets get to it.Firstly I think you have too many creatures, some of which don't have good synergy with the deck idea, mainly Flameblast Dragon, Jhoira's Timebug, Mercurial Chemister, Rift Elemental, Shivan Sand-Mage, Timebender. Some of those remove time counters but are just weak overall.I also don't like the wall cycle, the tempo gain from blocking a big creature is negligible in a multiplayer format and your wall still dies, I'd replace those too for say a Propaganda. Archivist can be replaced with Arcanis the Omnipotent same mana from jhoira, 2 more cards.

As for the spells Clockspinning, Fury Charm, Mana Leak and Timecrafting don't go enough to warrant a place in the deck and i think you should try to replace them with some kind of draw spells or counterspells without unless they play etc. Think Counterspell or Cancel

About the land base: Faerie Conclave, Looming Spires Soaring Seacliff are simply basic taplands that will slow you down immensely. Magosi, the Waterveil Shimmering Grotto Thespian's Stage don't do enough either. If you are solid on keeping Magosi, the Waterveil you need to add something to proliferate in order to get free counters instead of keep skipping turns. maybe Contagion Engine but it won't remove counters from suspended cards so its pretty much only for this 1 card.

For spot removal you can add Chaos Warp or maybe a Pongify for something especially nasty. Otherwise counter spells should be fine if someone targets you, and you should have the mana open anyway since you dont need to cast anything on your turn.

You can also add maybe 1-2 cards to protect jhoira from removal cost wise they go Swiftfoot Boots<Whispersilk Cloak<Lightning Greaves<Darksteel Plate

Lastly I'd put Drift of Phantasms just for the transmute ability to get Paradox Haze. Its one of my favorite cards and in your deck it will work wonders. Hope my advices will be of use to you and if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Cheers :)

While I definitely like Jhoira and all the shenanigans and mana-cheating she can allow, I'm not quite sure I see a theme for the deck as a whole. Is it a spell deck that tries to suspend multiple spells at a time for a Storm-like explosive turn later on? An engine for cheating out the Eldrazi titans? I think you need to define and narrow your focus a little.

-1 Oblivion Sower I just feel like there's no support for his ability here as it is, and you have no other processors, so he just seems like a vanilla fatty with a mill clause.

-1 Twisted Image & -1 Pyroblast These just seem to be serving the purpose of less efficient removal spells or incredibly conditional counters. It's all up to your meta/playgroup, but I think you already have better options.

-1 Sphinx's Tutelage I haven't played with this card, but I don't really see a reason for you to include a mill card in here.

Possible Adds:

Clockspinning, Fury Charm, Rift Elemental, Timecrafting, Delay All these cards would let you mess around with both your own suspended cards and other's, allowing you to craft the perfectly timed turn.

Firemind's Foresight Lets you search for the perfect instant-speed options, AT INSTANT SPEED!

Hope this helps, and good luck!
