Return all permanents of the color of your choice to their owners' hands.
Ugh, sorry about this, also meant to mention Wash Out as something i'd like in a sideboard, something I can use against mono decks ;). Would trade out for Whelming Wave or Evacuation , whichever I put in.
Check out Epochalyptik's profile, he has a ton of useful articles and lists and stuff that might give you some ideas/direction.
I'm not sure how I'd build Treva, the Renewer EDH. Maybe as a mini-Voltron commander with tools like Whispersilk Cloak and Rogue's Passage to help him get hits with his triggered ability, and things to grant him double strike (like Rafiq of the Many or Fireshrieker ) to get more trigger shots. Then a side of token generation to pump out defenses and colored permanents to abuse his ability (particularly if you can get mostly green or white tokens?).
You'd probably need a lot of ramp because that stuff I suggested looks expensive mana-wise, but luckily you have green!
I'd consider a sac outlet or two in order to abuse creatures you steal if opponents try to get them back, like High Market . Altar of Dementia and Undercity Informer seem like some milling tools for this.
Beacon of Unrest lets you pull creatures out of opponents' graveyards and use them against them, also.
First off, although your mana curve is low, you run far too few lands.
You often end up with just one land in your opening hand, which sets you behind a lot and makes it even harder/unlikely to cast Boomerang , Counterspell or Hymn to Tourach with just four nonbasics.
This deck might be built around Warped Devotion , but it relies too much on it.Perplex is your only tutor for it, which isn't quite worth transmuting for it since it doesn't get you ahead immediately by playing it, seeing how Warped Devotion itself is a slow card.
I'd probably start by cutting one Liliana's Caress and both Perplex to make room for three more lands. (Since you're running Brainstorm
, those would preferably be fetchlands, but Polluted Delta
is unfortunately expensive as hell.)
But 21 lands is the bare minimum you should play in this deck, preferably 22.
I'd probably move Overburden
to the sideboard since even with Warped Devotion, it's only worthwhile against creature heavy decks.
Talking about the sideboard, Wash Out works nicely with Warped Devotion.

This looks like a lot of fun! I have always loved playing with my Jhoira Deck!
A few things I noticed tho.
1 I am not that big a fan of cards that let you suspend things a little faster like Training Grounds . Jhoira having suspend one instead of suspend two is not that great. Why not play something like Sol Ring in that spot?
2 I dont know why people play Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots in this deck. I have always thought that they underperform. your general can always just use her ability the turn you cast her anyway so no need to give her haste or hexproof. besides you can aways recast her cuz she is so cheap. I guess you could put it on one of your wincons, but I still think something like Delay would be more versatile. up to you tho
4 here are some cards that I like that you can think about playing: Cyclonic Rift , Evacuation , Fact or Fiction , Muddle the Mixture , Steam Augury , Blasphemous Act , Chain Reaction , Curse of the Swine , Chaos Warp , Devastation Tide , Enter the Infinite , Eternal Dominion , Merchant Scroll , Sphinx Ambassador , Utvara Hellkite , Strip Mine , Expedition Map , Pongify , Wash Out , and Whelming Wave
anyway just some things to think about
