A more budget-friendly option for Jhoira of the Ghitu Suspend EDH Deck

Some of the prices TappedOut has linked from TCG Player is wrong

As with most of my decks, I try to keep it as competitive as possible without breaking the bank. This deck shouldn't get you kicked from your playgroup but at the same time, you won't get destroyed! Hope everyone has fun with it! All of my decks are meant to be played in a laid back competitive setting (Friends who are ready to beat each other)

Remember all the cards are linked in this description for ease of use and convenience thank you for taking the time to read it these things can be a lot of work so I really do appreciate it!


Please let me know if I missed anything or if any changes should or could be made and they can be added to the aqcuireboard for certain swaps or even be put in the deck!

All of the possible upgrades will be kept up to date in the maybeboard. Remember all maybeboard Upgrades are meant to be purchases for later not the initial deck.

What are the Main Mechanics

  • Suspend Jhoira of the Ghitu
    • (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay [cost] and exile it with N time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. It has haste.)
  • Annihilator Pathrazer of Ulamog
    • Annihilator is a triggered ability. “Annihilator N” means “Whenever this creature attacks, defending player sacrifices N permanents.”
  • Extra Turns Beacon of Tomorrows
    • Take extra turns.
  • Draw Overflowing Insight
    • Draw more cards.
  • Chaos Warp World
    • A card designed to turn a game of magic into a chaotic game of chance.

The Plan

  1. Get Jhoira of the Ghitu on the field
  2. Suspend the Big Spells
  3. Draw A LOT!
  4. Use the Chaos of your red spells to get/stay ahead
  5. Take Extra Turns to win

What are the key cards?

  • Jhoira of the Ghitu
    • Our commander is going to be our main suspender so get her out early and often. She will be able to suspend our big boys for and this is great but we must wait 4 turns before it is cast.
  • Rift Elemental
    • Rift Elemental is going to help us get our suspended cards faster than the standard 4 turns with it ability " Remove a time counter from a permanent you control or suspended card you own: Rift Elemental gets +2/+0 until end of turn". So not only will we get our suspended cards faster it will buff itself
  • Jhoira's Timebug
    • Jhoira's Timebug is another card that can help us but instead of just removing time counters we can add them on a card. You might be thinking why do that? Simple if someone board wiped not too long ago and Decree of Annihilation has one time counter it isn't going to be helpful but with Jhoira's Timebug can help us wait out the storm. The best part is that all you have to do is tap ()
  • Omniscience
    • We are playing Magic the Gathering who doesn't want to play something for free? This is what the card Omniscience is for. Once this hits the field you can dump your hand and it is going to feel so good but it won't stay up long so use it wisely.
  • It That Betrays
    • It That Betrays is a card that is going to help us grow our army without the extra effort by using the Annihilator effect on the Eldrazi we can steal all the monsters that are sacrificed. Note: The sacrifice can be any sacrifice on the field so long as it is an opponent's creature
  • Desolation Twin
    • Desolation Twin is just one great way to become a threat on the board almost instantly and also a great way to distract people from things going on in the background of your time bending schemes.
  • Breaker of Armies
    • Breaker of Armies is the card to end games time and time again once the big boys come to play Breaker of Armies will attract all the attention for the big boys and they can rampage as they wish.
  • Decree of Annihilation
    • Does everyone have a board state but you and you are about to go off be sure to Suspend Decree of Annihilation so we can clear off everything for the win!
  • Reliquary Tower
    • Oh, snap we drew too many cards. Wait we have Reliquary Tower we don't have a maximum hand size so it's okay we can hold on to all of our goodies and Halloween candy so we can Suspend them later.
  • Paradox Haze
    • Paradox Haze is going to help us get an extra upkeep so we can get two time counters off of our Suspend cards so we can get them online sooner rather than later. You will need to enchant yourself, however.
  • Arcanis the Omnipotent
    • Arcanis the Omnipotent is a great way to keep drawing cards and not have to worry about him getting zapped because you can pay to bring him back to your hand/safety.
