Creature — Chimera Hydra
Cascade, cascade, cascade, cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library ina random. Multiple instances of cascade each trigger separately.)

ILuvMtg: More ideas to think about, thanks :) The two monarch cards are fine, but I have at least one non-monarch version of both of them in here. The card draw off of the monarch is useful in general, but the deck doesn't really need it. So I'll pass on that one. Apex Devastator is one hell of a card, but the price tag keeps me away from it. The same goes for vigor. Adding them would be cool, but I just bring myself to buying them. If I ever get to trade for them, they'll get in here asap.
Considering Goreclaw already grants trample by simply attacking, I'll definitely not get rid of Greatwurm. Many times, the deck plays like a storm deck, and wurm is basically a free spell at the end or mid of going off.
Battle Mammoth is a card I like a lot, but I think it isn't really thatgreat in here. I'll have to think about it.
Thank you a lot for the input!

No problem! you're right that Leyline is pretty useless now that I think about it. Some other cards to consider might be Battle Mammoth, Vigor, Regal Behemoth, and Apex Devastator. (some of those might be a bit outside your budget). You can decide whether you think that Dawnglade Regent is an upgrade over Archtype. One card to remove might be Impervious Greatwurm. You have several cards to give creatures trample, but if you don't get one then it can literally be stoped cold by a 0/1 plant token. It's a good card for this deck, but there are other creatures that are just strictly better.

Hey there ILuvMtg I like your take Jodah. Not as creature heavy as most builds I've seen. Emergent Ultimatum comes to mind. Apex Devastator is also pretty... well.. devastating. And if you're looking for just a fun card Unexpected Results never know what you'll hit. I also have a Jodah sorcery deck see $5 Foot Long (Jodah) for more inspiration.

I like the idea, it seems very solid. I might create a similar version, but I'll probably change a few cards, I'm afraid it looses his gas in long matches.
Genesis Wave is better than it looks tho. Beastmaster Ascension can be very bad, but if played at the right moment, has potention to make some noise. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon can make things hard for at least 2 opponents if I may say, depends on your playgroup. An hey, Kessig Wolf Run can really cause some pain.
Talking about big creatures, I'll suggest Apex Devastator. It's guaranteed you'll at least drop 4 spells with him due to the mana curve we have here.
But, again, it's just suggestions, your list looks hella fun to play!

Not sure the title is on point, but my inquiry has something to do with my cascade deck.
So, I have built my cascade deck about two weeks ago and I have had the feeling that it's missing something (Here's the list I am referring to Cascade).
The point of the deck is to play Apex Devastator and Genesis Ultimatum which are my two favorite cards at the moment, what I feel is missing is bigger monstrosities and just bigger threat in general, stuff like Zacama, Primal Calamity to untap all my lands and allowing me to cast more stuff or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to double the damages and reduce the crack back when I swing out.
My friend told me I should switch my strategy to a Jodah, Archmage Eternal with a big mana theme and keep my cascade strategy and add Maelstrom Nexus so that even if my first spell does not have cascade, I will be able to get it.
Here are my two questions.
Would changing into a Jodah deck and mixing a big mana theme to a cascade theme really work? I am afraid that a big mana theme would require of me to play higher cmc spell and hinder the cascade side of the deck which requires cmc spells with lower values to cast them.
Other than the two other creatures I mentioned earlier and an Avacyn, Angel of Hope is there other cards with white and/or black I should think about integrating to the deck? Maybe Timesifter to go with all the high cmc spell I would add to the deck?

Saw your reddit post, I don't reddit but I do lurk....
This is an unorganized brain dump of my thoughts on the deck. Pressed the playtest button above and goofed around with it a bit.
Anyone playing karametra knows how busted Whitemane Lion is. Thus I can make a logical guess that you purposely took it out. Mind you that for white+1 it is your most powerful ramp spell. Along with its friends Kor Skyfisher and Stonecloaker. I'm not saying you should run it, but maybe consider either that or stonecloaker if your play group has a lot of graveyard stuff happening.
One land to consider might be Mistveil Plains, I would only swap it in if you feel like you run out of threats.
37 lands might be too much? Maybe try 35-36 and see how you like it. You have karametra!
Lotus Cobra is another Tireless Provisioner which trigger off your general, I must suggest replacing Faeburrow Elder. That is partially preference and how you reason it is like this: if you feel like Tireless Provisioner is better than Faeburrow Elder it is time to swap in a cobra.
A tech swap might be Garruk's Uprising over Elemental Bond. For one if your trying to stompy them,, you should probably have more than 4 power. It also gives natural trample. The catch is it reduces your draw potential, which we can actually address.
How often does your Archangel of Thune go off? Do you feel its falling behind?
As for stompy bois, some I consider are Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (WARNING: High salt), Woodland Bellower (Tutor + body), Apex Devastator (goes brrrr). Shalai, Voice of Plenty (if your wide or get targeted a lot), Kaldra Compleat (high pressure, makes big thing bigger), Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar (Comes back and with a lot of lands hits hard), one of my favorite cards ever printed, "cute" swarm uhh... I mean Scute Swarm. (s)cute swarm goes nuts when you start dropping lands. Get the alt art for extra (s)cuteness.

I really like your deck, hope you still work at it.
Is Keeper of the Accord the right card for this deck? There are chance that you spend 4 mana for a vanilla 3/4; and you need more than 3 basic plain for make it a ramp. I prefere Solemn Simulacrum over him. I don't really like Smothering Abomination, even if it seems make you draw cards. You can cut out Elenda, the Dusk Rose as well, 4 mana and for two 1/1 creature if you are unlucky.
From your Maybe list I like Bitterblossom, Deadly Dispute, Dusk / Dawn. Can Moon-Blessed Cleric be one more tutor for Anointed Procession? Do you ever considerate Goblin Sharpshooter? I'd like try it with Teysa Karlov. Speaking of goblins: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Siege-Gang Commander but maybe they are for another kind of deck. Does Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker works with Flamekin Herald? Remainder text for Apex Devastator says: "Multiple instances of cascade each trigger separately", so maybe yes, you can double cascade your sorcery commander. For sure it doesn't work with Academy Rector. Purphoros, God of the Forge maybe is to much strong and turn all your opponent against you.
