Thank you zaneanderman, for the feedback and suggestions. As I have looked for cards to cut to make room for other cards, Warstorm Surge is definitely a card I keep eyeing. 6 Mana for a non-human can be a lot to pay at times. It can bring a "Frenzy" to an unceremonious and early end. And then, if you were unable to cast it from the top of the library, you draw it and it is stuck in your hand anyway. When I made the cut to get Eladamri's Call into the deck Seedborn Muse and Warstorm Surge were really the two cards I was considering. Neither are humans and both have relatively high CMC. I agree, I probably cut the wrong one, between the two. I'll get that fixed.

Another card I am iffy on at this point is Pious Evangel  Flip. I got it into play recently and flipping it into the Wayward Disciple was easy enough. It did work for me but . . . I had thought this was exactly a beefier Zulaport Cutthroat. Like the Cutthroat, it triggers only when my own creatures die but rather than hitting each opponent, it targets just like Blood Artist. This is probably the only deck on earth that is running this card so that's fun but it's worse than I thought it was. Sky Hussar looks like a great card to try in this spot!

I've never considered Skyscribing before. What a unique effect. If it was in the Commander 2013 Derevi deck, I must have one. I'll see if I can find it!

My worry with Eladamri's Call was that it doesn't really do anything with Experimental Frenzy out because it tutors into hand, but I agree it seems quite powerful any other time. As for Seedborn Muse, it still seems very powerful, maybe you could cut one of your Warstorm Surge effects? I do like the tutors, and Mana Severance is incredibly powerful, you won't always have Chulane, Teller of Tales out, so probably keep Mystical Tutor.

As for other additions, maybe some cards that have abilities that can be used from hand? Sky Hussar and Skyscribing both seem like good ways to get lands off the top of your deck, and Sky Hussar is a good human in it's own right.

Although it's 6 mana, Warstorm Surge is another source for ETB damage and might be good. It's also flexible since it can target anything.

DrukenReaps: Creatureless Proteus Staff? How about Fblthp, the Lost?

I recently build an Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran forced combat deck around global enchantments and double strike creatures. My current wincons are True Conviction and Warstorm Surge in combination with many anthems. Spear of Heliod is great for forced combat.

I really like Jodah decks, would defiantly say Warstorm Surge is worth it as an add and it combos with Enter the Infinate and Omniscience REALLY well for a "I hope you can stop this!" sort of turn.

Ancient Brontodon just feels vanilla in this deck, there are more interesting things than a 9/9 dude without trample or something more scary and harder to deal with. cough Blightsteel Colossus cough

Fusion Elemental is cool and you can cast him without NEEDing Jodah on the field, but same argument as the Brontodon, just boring.

Leyline Prowler and Rattleclaw Mystic are nifty, but nothing will be better than a Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch for that early game goodness!

I actuall like Pathrazer of Ulamog, he's big and hard to deal with. Ulamog's Crusher however, I'd rather play one of the Eldrazi Gods directly (depending on how the rest of your metta plays).

I don't understand what Wall of Runes, Feral Incarnation, or Opt do for you. Go for more direct land fetching, fix those colors! (by the way, I like the mana filter ideas, solid back-up plan that doesn't require foolish amounts of expensive lands!)

Peer Through Depths and Sift Through Sands are cute, but why not go bigger or something like Rhystic Study?

I love the direction and it looks like it plays well, but I would take it as more aggressive. Mana-ramp to get Jodah out as soon as you can and just start abusing his power!

Panharmonicon

Panharmonicon works with some of the hydras, the ones that have triggered effects. Managorger Hydra for example already triggers once every time any player casts any spell. With Panharmonicon in play, any of those spells that are creatures or artifacts will trigger twice. Forgotten Ancient works the same way, though it is not a Hydra.

I Kept Panharmonicon mostly for Animar, Soul of Elements, but it’s also great for Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds,

Hydra Broodmaster compliments Panharmonicon as well. It doesn’t have a triggered effect, but when it goes Monstrous it will set off the trigger for Gyre Sage x2 times! Imagine the size of the Hydras you’ll be able to cast with that much mana from your now ginormous Gyre Sage! Granted the Sage has to have lower power than the created tokens, so this three card combo is not going to occur frequently.

Besides creatures, there are other cards that have great synergy with Panharmonicon: The Great Henge and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner each trigger twice for two cards drawn instead of one. Warstorm Surge and Unbound Flourishing triggering twice are game winners!

I added Inexorable Tide (gotta love doubling that proliferation) but I also removed two cards that work well with Panharmonicon: Rhystic Study would trigger twice, but I’m not a huge fan of taxing my opponents unless I’m playing Control (one permanent in 100 card deck isn’t enough for taxing to work imo) and Zendikar Resurgent which I debated long and hard about. In the end I took it out to make room for Inexorable Tide but perhaps there’s room for both?

I love deck building, especially the fine tuning aspect. I welcome more dialogue about this, or any other deck. Hope to hear more from you soon!

hibuddy1234 Thanks for your comment. I will consider to include both Phyrexian and Ashnod's Altar and with them Skullclamp but i want to play this deck more because at the moment i do not play it that much. But i have also some cards i probably take out ( for example Where Ancients Tread,it is to slow and with Warstorm Surge i already have one that is better.

In the long run i think i want to play with nore basic lands(about 25) to play cards like Boundless Realms, Amulet of Vigor and Perilous Forays. Those cards seems so good for Omnath. :)

About Fetches...... I am not a friend to play off color fetches... for me it does not feel right :D. -> Therefore i want to include more basic that the strategy is more about playing more basic lands and fetch them with those great basic Fetchlands.
