It's a competitive historic combo/storm deck built around the new commander Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. It's also the first Jhoira deck ever appeared on Tappedout.net. I've tried not to build it like a cheeri0s deck because that can be quite weak if your opponents have a lot of removals and keep aiming at your commander.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

It's an artifact-based combo deck that abuses the commander's ability to draw cards. Ideally you wanna have the commander out on as early as turn 2, and if that's the case, you could probably win on turn 3 or 4. Having the commander onboard gives you so much advantage since you can constantly refill you hand after casting spells. However, this deck was built with the ability to operate even if the commander is not able to stay on the battlefield.

First analyse your hand and the meta. If you have a very fast hand with lots of ramp spells, always try to get Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain out as early as possible. The truth is that the earlier you have Jhoira out, the better the chance you can win the game if you're not in a removal-heavy meta. If unluckily you're in a removal-heavy meta, or if you have a rather slow hand, you should change the game plan to be a more controlish one. You can try to assemble the combos while interrupting others instead of casting your commander on early turns. And use the commander to finish the combo once you had infinite mana.

After having infinite mana you can draw your whole deck with:

And after drawing your deck, you can either kill your opponents with Walking Ballista or Aetherflux Reservoir. IF both wincons have been exiled previously, the last way to kill is trying to assemble Paradox Engine + Isochron Scepter + Winds of Rebuke to mill your opponents out.

  • Sometimes you just need 18 storm counts or so to kill with Aetherflux Reservoir.

  • Bounce every thing back to you opponents' hands with Words of Wind + Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain + 2 mana rocks that net you  or more mana (Sometimes you don't even need infinite bounce, bouncing 5-6 permanents back to their hands could be devastating)
