Jodah doesn't help that much since most of your Avatars are about 5 to 7 CMC anyway. Just focus on improving your mana fixing. You could change your commander to an Avatar as well, like Child of Alara, Progenitus, or Karona, False God.

Don't bother with Boundless Realms because it comes too late. Gilded Lotus might be more suitable for your needs. Coalition Relic is great for producing 2 color of any mana. Celestial Dawn and Prismatic Omen help your lands produce colors.

You might not get that much damage out of Warstorm Surge.

Well considering that the most popular type of deck built around Child of Alara is a gods tribal, would be the best place to go for good card suggestions. I'd start there for you base. But, I'll give some suggestions without looking on so first things first, devotion. You'll need lots of devotion in the deck to turn on the gods. You'll be running all the gods, that's the problem. You be almost doing absolutely nothing to affect the game until you get to the late game. So board wipes, board wipes, and more board wipes lol. This is the second best thing you can do. But if you depend on your CMDR to do the board wipes with sac outlets, then you will have mostly pernmenets in your deck. This is where 3 cards become really good in this deck.

  1. Genesis Wave

  2. Primal Surge

  3. Kamahl's Druidic Vow

These 3 cards really shine in a deck that doesn't have many instant and sorcery spells

So I made this Child of Alara God Tribal deck "Let me play my fucking gods"

Do you guys have any recommendations? Willing to pay max 15/20$ per card. Any additional info is in the description.

Thanks in advance.

Saffi Eriksdotter goes inf with Sun Titan, Karmic Guide, or Reveillark and a sac outlet. It also works well with your general strategy by allowing you to save your best creatures and reuse the etb on creatures that your opponents try to kill. Or just reuse a creature after sacing it to pod.

Speaking of guide and sun titan, Fiend Hunter not only is a nice bit of removal on a creature (and with a little luck and know how it is permanently exiling) , but it goes inf with guide/titan and a sac outlet.

There is some tech that karador decks commonly use to guide/rev combo more consistently in Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth (it can snag entire combo in 1 turn). Now that Protean Hulk is legal, it does the same thing.

I think a couple more sac outlets would be good. My favorite non black ones for you are Blasting Station and Greater Good.

Lastly, I think you would be better off in 5 color for 1 drop free sac outlets like Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder so you can guide/rev combo more reliably. I think Child of Alara would be best if you follow this last bit.

I realize the guide/rev combo is not your deck's focus, but it just fits so well with your kiki pod stuff that I thought more of it's pieces ought be suggested.

You might want to consider putting a Child of Alara in there. Also, since I can see that you're going for a warrior synergy thing, you might want to put some cards with Battalion in there (ex. Boros Elite. Also, here's a couple cards I dug up; Rushblade Commander, Heroic Reinforcements, and Brawl-Bash Ogre

So, a quick answer to you again JujuleBarbu.

The main reason I don't run Artifact ramp, like you suggest, is that I don't have as many ways to recur and reuse it as I do with Instants and Sorceries. Cards like Anarchist, Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Mnemonic Wall and Scrivener all allow me to retrieve my ramp spells along with other pieces I might desire.

The one stand out suggestion you make, which I hadn't considered previously, is Evolution Charm, which I could see being useful for ramp and to return Child of Alara from the graveyard to my hand. I'm going to seriously see if I can fit that one in. So thank you for that. :)

why did you choose Reaper King as your commander?

thinking maybe Child of Alara can be good as it can delay other decks from winning with board clear

I mean... Five color=Best color combination... so yeah, I think we all can agree about that. Yeah, I love Thras/Tymna, great enablers for Hermit Druid.

I believe you have made my agruement for me, that list is the best atraxa list, not the best Hermit Druid/Cephalid Breakfast list though, right? so the arguement you made is nulled by this one:

"The point is, there is a hierarchy; that's inarguable. The cream of the crop sits at the top. As you move down the hierarchy, you also (presumably) decrease in speed and consistency, and to some extent, archetypically. There are other factors to consider as well."

So why have Atraxa here as Tier 2, when a Child of Alara would do just as well, right? Okay, minus Bloom Tender, other than that the deck would run nearly exactly the same. Honestly Bloom Tender might like Child of Alara now that I am thinking of it.

If the arguement that the best commander for an archetype is the only one that should be shown, this is undeniably false by the showing of Atraxa in Tier 2.
