Sphinx of the Second Sun
Creature — Sphinx
At the beginning of your postcombat main phase, you get an additional beginning phase after this phase. (The beginning phase includes the untap, upkeep and draw steps.)

I just recently added Lord of Change to mine.. 7 CMC, but get 2 flyng 6/6's and draw 6...
I would also trade out your sphinx for Sphinx of the Second Sun, if you get two you get to draw two and 2 untap steps.... You could cast instances on that first untap step, or if you have Selesnya Eulogist out, you can populate a bunch.
Love Volo, he has become my new favorite deck to play.. I might recommend some dry erase playing cards from amazon as well.. have found them handy for all the tokens. It also lets me draw fun little creatures when i play. :)

I'm glad you liked it, agentrex. I do have Paradox Haze in my list. I'll have to consider Sphinx of the Second Sun. Thanks for taking a look, and I hope it inspires your deck!

seshiro_of_the_orochi I've considered all of the cards at one point or another but felt that since all three only give me one additional token a turn they didn't quite do enough. Esix, Fractal Bloom might be worth it to copy one of the non-legendary copies of Koma or something of my opponents but that's very situational and this deck mostly wants to stick to its own plan. If I had more upkeep triggers I'd definitely consider Paradox Haze & Sphinx of the Second Sun.

I see Adrix and Nev and Spawning Kraken in your maybeboard. Might I suggest also considering Paradox Haze, Sphinx of the Second Sun and Esix, Fractal Bloom?

Jodah is my favorite commander, so I kind of have a thing for giving feedback on other peoples Jodah decks.
First, Enter the Infinite. With Omniscience, it wins the game. My other suggestions are Sunbird's Invocation, Cast Through Time, Swarm Intelligence, Lurking Predators, Chromatic Lantern,Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves, (both are must-haves), Progenitus, Sphinx of the Second Sun, and Faeburrow Elder. I’ll stop now because at this point I’m basically just listing off all of the cards that I have in my deck that you don’t.
You can check out my Woah, where did THAT come from? Jodah deck if you want some more ideas.

This deck was an idea to use some of my old cards, and also see just how nuts I could go with Kwain, Itinerant Meddler. This deck is a spider-web of synergy and combos, multiple infinite combos, and complete bonkers level shenanigans lurking behind a friendly-looking magic rabbit. This is not a budget deck, but in a gracious nod to Lewis Carroll, it is incredibly fun to go "down the rabbit-hole".
At it's core, the deck is group hug with card-draw, card based mana-ramp, and multiple options for life-gain. I use a few card-draw creatures as well, such as Shabraz, the Skyshark for their synergy with Kwain. Alternate win conditions include Approach of the Second Sun, Jace's Archivist, Windfall, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Triskaidekaphile, and Test of Endurance; but the deck is also perfectly capable of beating someone to death with a giant fish - or a giant anything thanks to numerous life-gain options paired with an Archangel of Thune.
The deck has several prison elements with Moat, Silent Arbiter, and Archon of Emeria, as well as Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Sphere of Safety. Silent Arbiter and Crawlspace help directly reduce the deck's exposure to attack, along with Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer for any specific threats or "when attacks" triggers. Finally, since this deck does not rely on creatures or doing damage to win, and generates lots of cards in hand, Meishin, the Mind Cage is an easy way to reduce all opponents' creatures to 0 power. For direct damage and targeted attacks outside of combat, the deck includes The Wanderer and Greater Auramancy.
Card draw, treasure tokens, and unlimited hand-size combine with four different Tutors, an Urza's Saga, and a Teferi's Puzzle Box help you keep multiple options in hand, and hopefully keep Kwain hopping one or two steps ahead of your opponents (Remember to use the tutors before your Teferi's Puzzle Box hits the board). Tidal Barracuda, and Vedalken Orrery let you cast anything on anyone's turn. Walking Atlas helps get rid of lands anytime it's not tapped (another combo with Mind Over Matter), and Drumbellower and Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset make sure you're able to untap on every turn, so you can play cards anytime - including win-cons like Laboratory Maniac or Jace's Archivist on an opponent's end-step, then draw for the win.
Circling back to Sphere of Safety - the deck runs 18 enchantments natively, but also features Enchanted Evening to turn everyone's permanents into enchantments. (The deck also conveniently includes Cleansing Nova to destroy all enchantments, which is an absolutely devastating total board wipe when paired with Enchanted Evening, especially if you have Avacyn, Angel of Hope in play on your side). With Enchanted Evening on the board and Sphere of Safety, every permanent you control also counts toward your opponents' cost to attack you for each creature they target you with. Comboing Enchanted Evening, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and Greater Auramancy means every permanent has both indestructible and shroud, and prevents your planeswalkers from being targeted (or targeted for attacks) directly.
I am only running two counterspells, Mana Drain and Force of Negation, so the deck uses Dovescape to lock down any stray non-creature spells, as well as Tidal Barracuda and ultimately Forced Fruition to further reduce any errant spellcasting. And in this deck, Dovescape not only helps creates magnitudes of tokens, but each of those tokens is potentially an enchantment when it hits the board. With Enchanted Evening in play, those tokens, or ... literally ... any ... other card you play, combos off Archon of Sun's Grace to instantly create infinite (enchantment) pegasus tokens, and become effectively a 1 card infinite combo of 2/2 flying (avoiding Moat) lifelink pegasus. Every. Single. Time. any permanent hits the board under your control after you have both in play.
The Deck includes a The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale to help keep down on the riff-raff, (plus kill off a few billion pegasus every turn), and helps tie up opponent's mana; meshing with the prison cards we already use. For its own mana, there are some basic mana-rocks and a Smothering Tithe to help offset some of the higher casting cost spells if Braids, Conjurer Adept is not on the board.
The Smothering Tithe pairs well with sheer card-draw provided through Forced Fruition, Temple Bell, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Kwain, Itinerant Meddler to almost guarantee several dozen treasure tokens each turn and help the deck rapidly ramp to maintain both card and board advantage towards casting an Omniscience.
More combo madness, Teferi's Puzzle Box helps spin through the deck looking for lands and combo solutions. Teferi's Puzzle Box also combos really well with Shabraz, the Skyshark and Alhammarret's Archive, effectively doubling the card-draw effect of Teferi's Puzzle Box each draw phase - and Sphinx of the Second Sun provides double the draw-phases per turn, so you're geometrically quadrupling your cards in hand each turn (and possibly playing them for free). And, for every card you draw, the shark is growing, your life is growing, and if you have the Archangel of Thune, everything else is growing too.
If you want to discard cards from your hand, to hit Triskaidekaphile for instance, or just go infinite with your commander, you can use Mind Over Matter, Omniscience, or Peace of Mind to manipulate your hand-size and either play or discard. The deck includes an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Timetwister and Elixir of Immortality to shuffle your graveyard back into your hand, as well as Displacer Kitten and Angel of Finality to exile your opponents' graveyards with a quick bounce.
Forced Fruition + Smothering Tithe == Treasure Tokens
Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark == Giant Shark and TONS of life-gain every turn
Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark + Alhammarret's Archive == Sheer madness
Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark + Alhammarret's Archive + Archangel of Thune == Same as above, but now ALL of your creatures grow exponentially, every turn
Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + (any of the above) == even more nuts
Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + Mind Over Matter == Infinite combo, draw your deck
Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + Mind Over Matter + (any "if you cannot draw you win") = instant win
Enchanted Evening + Sphere of Safety == every card you have counts towards attack cost
Enchanted Evening + Cleansing Nova == total board wipe (lands, creatures, artifacts, all permanents)
Enchanted Evening + Aura Fracture + (any land) == targeted removal of any permanent
Enchanted Evening + Archon of Sun's Grace == infinite flying pegasus whenever ANY card hits the board under your control, even treasure tokens from Forced Fruition.
Enchanted Evening + Greater Auramancy == every card you play has shroud when it comes into play, but will interfere with Mind Over Matter combo with Kwain.
Sheer Card Draw and hand-size + Mind Over Matter == you can tap or untap whatever you want, whenever you want, and you can reshuffle your graveyard with Elixir of Immortality or Timetwister.
There's more I could write about with additional combos and card interactions, but those are the highlights. The deck is just all-out madness to play and can quietly build and recycle cards until it comes out of nowhere with an 600/600 flying shark. I enjoy it. I hope you will as well.
