Jodah, Archmage Eternal Discussion

nickcatron94 on Jodah Shrines

Hello RiotRunner789, thank you for your comment! Jodah, Archmage Eternal works pretty good as a commander. Beside the costs reduction, Jodah is also pretty powerful as it is a 4/3 flyer. Although, because of Jodah, Archmage Eternal's ability, opponents tend to destroy this commander whenever they have the chance. Especially in multiplayer games, Jodah, Archmage Eternal was the biggest threat and frequently the target of spot removal. This said, if Jodah is not on the board, the whole game plan becomes a failure.

Ditto on Nekusar, the Mindrazer, because gameclock stuff. I like playing against Jodah, Archmage Eternal because I like unpredictable goodstuff. Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip is super fun because I like how wheels wreck up plans. Thantis, the Warweaver is a romping good time. Mogis, God of Slaughter is a great game-clock slug deck that has a lot of equal opportunity destruction.

Sweet prototype (+1), I've been waiting forever for WOTC to do more with the shrines. Do you think some graveyard recursion would work well here? Cards such as Dance of the Manse, Obzedat's Aid, Eerie Ultimatum, or Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. This is the direction I might try out for a commander build centered around the graveyard with Jodah, Archmage Eternal.

I've used many over the years, and I've become partial to Jodah, Archmage Eternal. It's nice to be able to Conflux for 5 or drop a Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker early on. Yeah it doesn't make playing Doubling Season any faster, but it can help you play some big bombs to control the board and bait out potential removal before you go for the win.

It may be an unpopular opinion, since Fist of Suns looks like the Infinity Gauntlet and was in the precon, but in my testing I've found both Fist of Suns and Jodah, Archmage Eternal are really terrible in this style deck.

Let me explain - Due to Emminence, Every 7 CMC creature in the deck is already discounted by one, meaning they are now 6 CMC. You, like myself, only run 1 creature that is more than 7 CMC. This makes Fist of Suns and Jodah function as extremely expensive and mana intensive versions of Dragonlord's Servant, which I would argue is already the worst of the ramp cards you have access to.

Sure these two cards do work with the commander - but the fact that you only run 1 other dragon above 7 CMC means these two cards do not synergize with 98% of your deck. They're both super cool, but I just don't think they have a place here.

I'd swap out for Nature's Lore and Arcane Signet. Maybe find room for a Fellwar Stone somehow too. Any one of these three looks like a strict upgrade to Sylvan Scrying.

Also, have you seen the new Garruk's Uprising that was spoiled for M21? I think it's a really good upgrade to Elemental Bond

I like your inclusion of Time of Need. Going to have to hunt one of those down for myself.

Cool deck! You might like these: Chakram Retriever, Intruder Alarm, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Horde of Notions, Omnath, Locus of the Roil, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Illusionist's Bracers, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Cerulean Wisps, Instill Energy, Nature's Chosen, Generator Servant, Fist of Suns, Jodah, Archmage Eternal, Jeskai Ascendancy.

Sisay finds Momir Vig, Vig finds Chakram Retriever (assuming you have a green card in hand to trigger Momir. 1/4 of your list is green so this should be no problem). You can then use Sisay to find Horde of Notions, Omnath LOTR, and Varolz. Sack Omnath to Varolz, use Jegantha to pay for Horde's ability to recast Omnath from grave, triggering Retriever to untap Jegantha. Repeat for infinite damage via Omnath's entry trigger. The other cards mentioned are just speed boosters

I have replaced Inferno Titan with Jegantha, the Wellspring (as a normal card, not as a companion), which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.55 to 4.53, which is always good. I was sad to make that change because the titan is very awesome, but its ability is not particularly useful in EDH, while Jegantha has great synergy with Jodah, Archmage Eternal.

DemonDragonJ on How Can I Get Jegantha ...

I would like to put Jegantha, the Wellspring in my five-colored EDH deck, because of its great synergy with Jodah, Archmage Eternal, but I am not certain which card I should remove to make room for it, so I wish to ask for advice on what I should do on that matter.

The most logical card to remove is Inferno Titan, since that creature's ability is not nearly as good in EDH as it would be in a normal format, so what does everyone else say about that? Which card should Jegantha replace?
