Five Color Human Legends In Standard With Jodah, The Unifier


Normally when we see a card in Magic that costswubrg, we're conditioned to see it as a joke - a card made for casual tables or Commander games, not made for competitive play.

Karona, False God
Sanctum of All

Some are more powerful than others, but these are not usually the cards taking down trophies or making Mythic on MTG Arena. Well, it's time to buck the trend with Jodah, the Unifier!

Jodah, the Unifier

Jodah, the Unifier is a pretty unbelievable card on both sides of the ball. On the one hand, the Coat of Arms style effect ensures that Jodah is always at least a 6/6 and more often than not will be adding double digit power spread across your entire board. However, if you don't have much of a board yet Jodah will ensure you do by cascading into even more legends as you cast them.

He just needs a deck to go in...

Time Stamps:

20:22 - Match 2

41:17 - Match 3

This deck is all about the mana available in the format as well as the suite of legendary Human creatures.

Secluded Courtyard
Plaza of Heroes
Jetmir's Garden

When almost every card in your deck is a legendary Human, both Secluded Courtyard and Plaza of Heroes are painless lands that always enter the battlefield untapped and tap for any color, which is an incredible asset. Throw in the triomes as well as some value from legendary lands and you've got an amazing mana base.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Halana and Alena, Partners
Lagrella, the Magpie

The creature suite is also quite impressive as well. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben needs no introduction, but what's great is that this deck is also just a sort of Halana and Alana, Partners aggressive deck looking to beef up a lifelinker or get in with Adeline, Resplendent Cathar. The fact that you've got the incredible Jodah, the Unifier on the top end is almost just a bonus.

If you're looking for a Standard deck that's a bit crazy but is jam packed with power, don't be afraid to get Legendary!
