Bxbx on Jodah, Archmage Eternal

Hey, thanks for the suggestions and the upvotes!

@Atuva: Yeah, Enter the Infinite + Omniscience would be an instant win in the deck. I won't include it while testing, but it should be in a final version, I think.

@Atuva and SirSh4ggy: Ramos, Dragon Engine has high upside if its ability gets going, but he will be too slow in the deck without further support, I expect. That's because there are relatively few multicolored spells and the cmc of the deck is rather high (even with the alternative cost from Jodah). And I don't want to put cards like Doubling Season in the deck only for Ramos. It would be great if somebody pointed out a way to include Ramos, Dragon Engine into the Grozoth combo (searching him out with Dragonstorm wouldn't do much yet).

@SirSh4ggy: Maelstrom Wanderer doesn't hit most of the powerhouses in the deck, so I didn't include it, but Unexpected Results seems cool because it either ramps or has a chance on hitting the powerhouses (and I play few counterspells) - cool addition!

Quicksilver Amulet and company won't let me use the cast triggers of my creatures, so they're not optimal. But Defense of the Heart is a tutor at least and can search something like Dragonlord Kolaghan + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre which is nice. And Elvish Piper could maybe replace Myojin of Life's Web.

@Spoosky: Akroma's Memorial is a good idea! A lot of my creatures have no evasion at all and this will give them all kinds of evasion. If testing shows that my threat density is more than enough, then I'll try to find room for the memorial.

Thanks for the feedback! You've made several suggestions I agree with entirely, some I think are on point but need a few tweaks, and some I disagree with. I'll break it down card by card:

First, you're totally right about Army of the Damned, it's not as good in this deck as it is elsewhere. I've found it generally underwhelming every time I've drawn it, and I've never grabbed it off a tutor. Deploy to the Front is an excellent suggestion. Not only does it generally produce more value, but it helps me stabilize if I have a rough early game, something army is notoriously bad for. I'll put it on the acquireboard tonight. Ezuri's Predation and Horncaller's Chant seem a little low impact however. As for Divergent Transformations, that's a hilarious card I've never seen before. Chaos warping two things can be great, but I feel like my current draw, cheating, and removal effects are so much better that they outweigh the utility value of the card. I'll have to think about it more, however.

Spawning Grounds is card I saw when doing research for my deck and decided was too cute. It's painfully slow, as you mentioned, and I'd rather just be drawing cards in the lategame when I have the mana to cast whatever I want, since my cards almost always beat 5/5s.

I think you're underestimating the disgusting value I can get with Myojin of Seeing Winds. It draws me a card for EVERY PERMANENT I CONTROL. Even lands. It has yet to draw me less than 15 cards. The 3/3 sucks but I'd never play it for the body. Honestly the only reason I might drop it is I'd have a couple games where I couldn't use it because it'd deck me, but when my board's that developed it's a win-more situation anyway. While you're right that Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is easy to remove and gives advance warning, it also draws me 7 cards, which is major gas. That's why I generally play it on my turn rather than abuse the flash ability. The discard on my opponents is just icing on the cake if I can make it happen. I also consider discard a form of resource denial, and I'm concerned going all in on making my friends dump their hands will lose me said friends.

Now on to All Suns' Dawn. Ooh boy. I think you underestimate the ability of the card to recur things besides my creatures (bring back Conflux for maximum degeneracy points), but I also have yet to use it for the amazing value it theoretically provides. Being unable to grab colorless cards is a bigger downside in this deck than it should be in 5 colors, but it is what it is. I may be cutting it. Debtors' Knell is another card I've never seen before, and I think I need more time to evaluate it. Theoretically, the payoff is insane, but I fear it may suffer the same issues as Dawn currently does. It definitely merits testing.

Baneful Omen is great synergy, but I feel it's a bit slow and not all that impactful, even when I hit cards like Progenitus. It's also outclassed (in my opinion) by similar cards: I'd sooner run my Twilight Prophet for the added lifegain and draw. I'll have to consider more if effects like that are strong enough for the slots they'd occupy. Definitely an interesting suggestion.

You're right, Grozoth isn't a huge play, especially since I've been cutting Grozoth targets left and right. It may be out of the deck soon, despite the wonderful "That's a card?" reactions I get with it. However, consider it's a 9/9 blocker too, and that I can get Myojin of Life's Web with it to vomit cards from my hand right after the draw.

I LOVE Cruel Entertainment, but for some reason it never occurred to me to add it to this deck. It'll probably go in with the next edit. Great suggestion!

That's where I am right now, but you've given me a lot to think about, and I might develop new opinions about a lot of your points as I consider them. Definitely appreciate the feedback!

This is great. This roars 'greeeeeeeeeen' from every single card. I like it a lot. I do have some suggestions you might like to consider:

Scute Mob helps you cast Ghalta. And it does even better if games go longer. Root Elemental and Myojin of Life's Web are pretty similar, but both very powerful here. Considering your amount of token generation, Stag Beetle might be interesting for you as well. Also, how about Ulvenwald Observer and Soul of the Harvest? Also, Thicket Elemental, Garruk's Horde, Mouth / Feed and Cream of the Crop all seem like they could do a good job here. Oh, and then, there is Zendikar Resurgent.
