Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, but I understand, I'll use those instead.

Hey, good start, still have 25 cards to cut though which is a lot.
Lets start with cutting noncreature spells and then move to cutting creatures? First cuts to consider:
- Myriad Landscape
- Ash Barrens
- Shamanic Revelation
- Search for Tomorrow
- The Celestus
- Xenagos, the Reveler
You can afford to cut a couple of the subpar lands for five colors. Ash Barrens is fine if you want to spend one mana to fetch a basic land, but if you have to play it as a land then it could slow down being able to cast Jodah too much. Shamanic Revelation is not good draw here for five mana. You're much more likely to have a higher power creature than the same number of creatures equal or more than the amount of power.
There's 40 creatures here, but if I was building this deck I would play only 20 of them which includes both nonLegendary Elders. Some advice to consider is choose the 20-25 best Legendary creatures and cut the others? Since you're not playing hatebears, what you're looking for with Legends are getting value from other Legends or casting spells from exile. How they support Jodah because he's the best attacking creature when you control other Legends.
Using Legendary creatures you're currently playing here's how I would break down the priority areas from Legends to keep:
Those who draw, ramp or find other Legends.
- Sisay, Weatherlight Captain
- Reki, the History of Kamigawa
- Esika, God of the Tree Flip
- Shanid, Sleepers' Scourge
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
- Maelstrom Wanderer
- Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
- Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder
- Niambi, Esteemed Speaker
Those who make Jodah a better attacker.
- Halana and Alena, Partners
- Kamiz, Obscura Oculus
- Odric, Lunarch Marshal
- Surrak Dragonclaw
- Arvad the Cursed
Those who help for recovery from removal.
Those who are support, but don't fit into the other areas.
Some Legends within the budget to consider adding:
Good luck with your deck.

If you ever did decide to crew your commander, then Intruder Alarm will let you go infinite without other artifact untappers. I'm assuming that's why it's here, as another backup plan.
It may be too slow for you, but if you ever planned to play a version that was more synergistic and value-based as opposed to infinite combo based, Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage can let you run the deck at instant speed.

Here are some cards to consider dear brother:
- Bard Class
- Urza's Ruinous Blast
- Primevals' Glorious Rebirth
- Arvad the Cursed
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
- Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage
- Kamahl's Druidic Vow
- Anafenza, the Foremost
- Day of Destiny
- Kenrith, the Returned King
- General's Enforcer
- Baird, Steward of Argive
- Rishkar, Peema Renegade
- Literally any form of removal, you've got next to none
- Better artifact ramp
- Better lands (artifact lands are bad choices here)
- More ramp spells (i.e Cultivate, Farseek)
Remember, really look at what you're throwing in. Half of these cards have no function, and don't do anything for the deck. I'll leave it to you (for now) to figure out which ones fall under this. One that I'll give you is Nahiri, Storm of Stone. You've got very little equipment, and equipment is not the focus of the deck here.
A good start, but remember what I've taught you. Keep it up!

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)
Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.
Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.
Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.
Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.
Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS
Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.
Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.
Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.
Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.
Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.
Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.
Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.
Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad
Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.
