i know the current stand is any uchiha can use it, after itachi used it, read closely at what i said
it previously was established by tobi that it was only available to those who had combined powers of both senju and uchiha, and this was consistent with danzou's use of it (he had hashirama)
it was a very SECRET move that was unknown to most, and knowledge only held by 1-2 people every few generations
and then itachi described the uchiha clan having thousands of people using it, and suddenly everything established before is farted into the winds

not sure if it's actual physical degradation of the eye, spiritual degradation (Chakra paths/souls) or a seal (they do always say the eyes are sealed. does that mean it's reversible by someone with sufficient skill?)
but again Tobi's statement is kind of absolute...maybe theres a translation issue?
Kishi changed ideas mid-way, is that simple.
The translation said that, to use Izanagi, you need to have both Senju and Uchiha powers, meaning at that time you needed both components.
The manga after that says otherwise, thus we have to assume that Izanagi can be used even without Senju DNA
I thought the answer to this was quite simple?
When Izanami and izanagi are used, you get a seal applied to your eyes. Same goes for using the mangekyou sharingan, albeit the process is slower.
Even edo tensei'd characters have shown they are not impervious to seals. So no, it's highly unlikely that he can spam it constantly.
Considering the seals do affect the Edo Tensei, I don't think ET Madara can spam Izanagi or Izanami. His eyes would likely be permanently sealed. Though to be fair, Itachi probably didn't try to fix his sealed eye since htere was no use.
I think Madara is not able to at this point, but I am not going to write it off as impossible.
We already know that the duration of the Izanagi technique can be extended by means of injecting Senju cells.
Yes, the idea itself is terrifying, but that is exactly what Madara has come to embody.
