The same goes if an (evil) opponent has a Jin-Gitaxias in game?

I discard my hand at the end of turn, but draw x2 cards, and Don't discard again?

@sluggy10, the short answer is no.

End phase is divided into end step and cleanup step. If the opponent has Jin Gitaxias, cards are drawn in the beginning of end step and discarded in cleanup step. Nothing triggers in cleanup step and it's not repeated, and end step itself never repeats.

In this videos, nothing happens in end step, but there is a trigger in cleanup step which makes it repeat after the trigger is resolved.

Small addition: You do not get another Cleanup Step because you have 8 cards again but because an ability triggered.

@Tikosh, absolutely true! Admittedly, I made it sound a bit unclear, my apologies for that. You get another cleanup anytime anything triggers during the cleanup, regardlessly of the number of cards in your hand.
