So incase you want a more casual deck; I just posted this on somneone else deck post that was after feed back and thought it might help'

It's highly tuned with a write up but just under that cedh level. have a look at the winning play section on either deck.

Card Options

Some options you could consider if youre keeping it a little more casual are;

Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle and old classic = Infinite coloured mana

or

Palinchron + a mana doublers = Infinite mana. Casting Palinchron for WUBRG, and bouncing for 4cmc means we need 5 lands + 1 Doubler to be on an infinite coloured mana loop.

if we use Zendikar Resurgent as our doubler you have a way to draw the entire deck and win.

Tooth and Nail can be used to find Palinchron + Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and get both into play which will create infinite mana.

One thing to consider are using more mana doublers, as they work like Jodah for the most part..if youre saving 5 or 6 even 7cmc by using Jodah then having 7 lands into play + a mana doubler is very similar.

You can also run a deadly play tooth and nail into Arena Rector + Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Use sidisi to exploit rector, put Omniscience into play and then find Enter the Infinite.

There some really strong plays you can make Jodah really fire...If you want more feed back or critique let me know, or ask away. Jodah has become my favourite commander..just so many options

@Maizena it's the instant speed vs sorcery speed that makes vindicate worse, if both were instants then vindicate would be one of the best options available.

@DrkNinja what is your goal with this deck? is this for a more casual group? or are you after a stronger deck?

I added a primer with the deck, If you're after a stronger deck have a look at the common mistakes section. Essentially it's the idea that we want to making strong impactfful plays if we have Jodah active, not use to Jodah to set up for future value.

Sunbird's Invocation I mention as an example, Also if your wanting a more casual deck then have a look at

OmegaZefram on Surge Ramp

I really like Prime Time in this deck, but I have to wonder if Tooth and Nail is just a better win condition. It means you can run more non-permanents and if you use Emrakul + Zenagos, god you can just outright win the turn you cast it.

I suppose the one advantage of Primal Surge over the Tooth and Nail deck is that the results are more resilient, multiple threats is harder to answer than a single one (I played tooth and nail for a while, losing to a random Deflecting Palm was a bad time.) If that's the case, you may want less reliance on Emrakul and something more like a bunch of smaller hasty creatures backed up by Craterhoof Behemoth. Since you will probably be putting 10+ permanents on the battlefield at once, a Craterhoof with something like Strangleroot Geist and its kin could be awesome. A build like that also means you have fewer dead cards in the event you fail to resolve Primal Surge.

Drakoy07 on Atraxa's Wrath of Life

Hey NV_1980,

Made most of the drops you recommended. Dropped Palace Siege, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Diabolic Revelation. However I am keeping Tooth and Nail as this is actually a sly combo wincon. Even though it's not mentioned in the details as yet, but will be soon enough. With that one card your potential to win the game increases dramatically (obviously as long as you don't get countered).

I use Tooth and Nail to search up the combo pieces Archangel of Thune & Spike Feeder. It's usually used as a last resort when the game isn't going our way or if we just want to end the game.

We know these 2 cards combine to give us infinite life, but once you add Mirrorpool in the mix to copy the affect of Tooth and Nail. You then get to grab x2 more pieces Crystalline Crawler for infinite mana & Fathom Mage to allow you to draw the entire deck to find the final finishers (now that we can manually increase our life to go infinite) Aetherflux Reservoir or if that's gone Sanguine Bond or if that's gone Vizkopa Guildmage or if that's gone Debt to the Deathless (now that we have Infinite mana from Crystalline Crawler). You get the idea. ;)

Thanks for the great suggestions! I'll also be making some time to check out your builds...you have quite the catalog! :D

Shyachi33 on Top o' the Food Chain

nice, i'm thinking of just taking out all of my doublers in my deck, except maybe Mana Reflection. in my play group mana doublers get hated out so much that's it's almost never worth the mana cost, what i cast for 5-7 mana gets easily killed/countered by much cheaper spells usually making them not worth it, i'd rather have cards that are lower threat, but sticks around for more value.

Tooth and Nail is a good tutor for sure. but Chord of Calling is just insane, you can cheat out all sorts of shenanigans with that card for cheap cast at instant speed. and i would say Green Sun's Zenith is also a strong contender, over Primal Command (unless money is an issue)

lastly, i was digging really deep in the mtg database last night for Zacama, i think i found my new favorite pet card for the deck Dust Elemental 4 mana cost, flash, and return 3 creatures including himself. lets you go infinite with zacama if you have 14+ land base mana, and even better if you run more ETB creatures like Eternal Witness, Wood Elves, Acidic Slime (just destroy everyone's lands if you can't win with damage). Or just even simple stuff like Impact Tremors can win with the recasting loop. But in case of board wipes you can just save 2 of your creatures for 4 mana, and for how ever much mana you have open you can repeat that.

also if you liked the idea of Whitemane Lion there are: Jeskai Barricade, Stonecloaker (a repeatable 3 mana GY hate card), and Fleetfoot Panther (probably the worst of the set.)

@shyachi33: No worries about the length, I appreciate your thoughts. Doubling Cube is actually great with all the doubler's I'm running. Plus, with Mana Reflection it becomes a tripler. Shapers' Sanctuary actually usually nets me an average of 3-6 draws. And no one really messes with it too much because of the other threats. Most of the time, I'm not dropping my doublers until I get the most out of them (on my turn), they also eat some hate from people that know what my deck does. Otherwise, it's a way for me to sneak my commander out without them realizing what happened until it's too late. I've been looking at Traverse the Outlands, and Seasons Past. I have an Eternal Witness on the way.

Depending on the game, I will typically use Plea for Guidance to go get Food Chain + Mana Reflection unless I have enough doublers out, then I'll grab Myth Unbound. Food Chain is great. I was running Abundance, but found I don't really need it now.

I like the lands that give haste, and Whitemane Lion.

I hadn't thought about Aurelia's Fury over Rolling Thunder. Thanks for that!

I'm also waiting on a Tooth and Nail.

Thanks for the ideas!

Kruxian on Ruric Thar's Guide to Punching Mages in the Face!

This is really good but have you considered Primal Surge over Tooth and Nail since your running all permanents once it resolves with the creatures you have on the board that's game. Added benefit ruric thar only hit you once cause you won't be casting the other spells you can even take out Zendikar Resurgent too now that I think about it if you swap out a land for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I noticed the lack of mana dorks is the game plan just tough it out early game till the ramp takes off. Let me know your thoughts maybe I'm missing something.

Similarly, I hope we see maybe something such as Tooth and Nail, Sylvan Tutor or Fauna Shaman.
