I use Child of Alara in my build of God tribal. The indestructible on my creatures leaves me protected when child pops off. Having said that your build here looks pretty solid and has me wondering if I shouldn't try your version. Again well done. An easy +1 from me.

What do you think of Child of Alara for commander? It's literally the child of the plane of Alara, and when it dies there's a natural disaster.

My wife is trying to build a tribal god deck but she’s having multiple issues with the deck.
First thing is she can’t decide on a general. She’s hesitating between
Child of Alara: Whipping the board over and over and only having her gods on the board.
Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, playing big mana creatures with multiple colours in their identity to add the devotion count.
Kenrith, the Returned King: I forgot why she thought that one was a good pick.
Also, would a devotion themed deck be better than a tribal god deck which needs devotions?

Peligrad I think it's important to count up just how many cards Court of Grace will draw you over the course of a game... let's imagine you get the Court by T4. Good start, not impossible by any means. Let's also say we choose to cast it over Solemn Simulacrum, Smothering Tithe, or Alms Collector--or even a three-drop like Burnished Hart, or Generous Gift. All that said, let's go with that we cast CoG on T4. We draw one card off it. Move to T5, people have likely stopped ramping (in a typical EDH game) and are now building value engines: such as Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Mulldrifter. You are now drawing 1 (maybe) card to that players' 2, and you have a target on your back because of your flyers. T6, what's that? Austere Command, Bane of Progress, Cleansing Nova, Tranquility, Child of Alara, or Nevinyrral's Disk? Darn!

Okay, but hear me out: Child of Alara. You can flavor it as setting up a bomb if you're into that sweet supervillain shit.
Elsewise, I think a Jared Carthalion, True Heir deck with lot of monarch stuff could be super cool- Pariah and Blasphemous Act effects are really sweet with him, and he may be the Stuffy Doll commander we've all been waiting for.

God tribal with Child of Alara at the helm?

You actually don't need to reanimate Child of Alara anymore. They changed the way death triggers work for commanders a little while ago...now you can have it just go to the command Zone and still get the death trigger.

I had a Child of Alara deck that used reanimation to repeatedly boardwipe before the death trigger change. As it turns out, boardwiping at least once a turn breaks the social contract or something.
