Jhoira of the Ghitu

    Okay, let's build this deck. I want to take advantage of Jhoira's awesome ability. I'm not sure if a tier 1/2/3 deck has already been made (probably), but let's just start.

    4x Jhoira of the Ghitu (She's the focus of the deck)

    4x Aeon Chronicler (duh)

    3-4x Greater Gargadon (GO GARGADON!)

    2-3x Detritivore (I'm thinking 2 will be fine, we don't need much more)



    Okay, that's the obvious stuff. Maybe Capsize, to abuse the splended suspendedness. Evacuation as well?

    Clockspinning could be helpful.

    Memory Crystal to really break buyback.

    Deep-Sea Kraken...... hahahaha

    Fury Charm is very useful.

    life gain - Heroes Remembered

    Nihilith - for when they put cards in their GY.

    There are a slew of cards that you may not be able to cast any other way, but which are still fantastic, even with a 4-turn delay. Plague Wind, Decree of Pain, and Overwhelming Forces each have advantages. Since you're playing with some amazing fatties, Tooth and Nail is fun. Instead of suspending Greater Gargadon for 4 turns, you suspend Tooth and Nail and get two Greater Gargadons. If you're looking more for on-colour cards, then Niv Mizzet, the Firemind, Akroma, Angel of Fury, and Bogardan Hellkite are all excellent options.
  4. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Okay, this is what I have so far.

    Creatures:
    4 Jhoira of the Ghitu
    4 Greater Gargadon
    4 Akroma, Angel of Fury
    4 Bogardan Hellkite
    3 Aeon Chronicler
    2 Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
    2 Detritivore

    Spells
    3 Fury Charm
    3 Clockspinning
    3 Capsize
    3 Intuition

    Atifacts:
    2 Memory Crystal


    One problem is if Jhoira is not on the table, there isn't much this deck can do...
  5. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    So why not add some signets and other mana generators to start helping you do stuff?

    This deck is begging for a way to clear the board. If you have Akroma suspended to come out next turn, Wrath of God would be amazing. If Bogardan Hellkite is supsended, Armageddon would be brutal. Or you could go with my all-time favourite board-sweeper, Razia's Purification.
  7. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Very true, but with this being blue/green, maybe my alltime favorite........
    The giant among magic men, the card hated by KJ,

    Upheaval


    KJ calls it upevil...... :D
  8. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    How is this Blue/Green? Jhoira is U/R!


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  9. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I meant U/R/G, but it's not white....
  10. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    With the exception of the Tooth and Nail suggested by Ephraim, I still fail to see the green.

    Well, what does anyone think? Ransac?
  13. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'm sure you meant Steam Vents instead of Breeding Pool. What's with you guys and green!? ;)

    It looks like a decently solid deck. However, in the casual spirit, I want to break the suspend sorcery cards as well. Any ideas?


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  14. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Yep, steam vents is the one I was looking for.... I had both up on a web page and copied the wrong one.

  15. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Creature Possibilities:
    Lightning Angels
    Arcanis the Omnipotent - might as well have some draw capabilities...

    Others
    Decree of Annihilation
    beacon of tomorrows
    timestretch

    You can also run other non-blue utility cards, ad not even need the mana to play them...
  16. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    The angels seem a bit pointless to me. The idea is to exploit Jhoira's suspending ability. Besides the fact that it's an awesome creature, what's the point of having a creature with haste in the deck?


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  17. train The Wildcard!!!...

    there's not much to hold the game board early on... I figured the angel would be a good start... so Jhoira didn't have to be used as fodder...

    ditto with the turn buyers... it allows for further removal of counters, and keeps the opponent at bay that much longer...
