Madara didn't have Mokuton back then, so he couldn't use a wood clone.
If Izanagi did save Madara, we'd have been told that. Tobi and Madara never mentioned Izanagi, just shock that they were still alive after the finishing blow.
madara anticipated a strike from behind
he also knew has to play on hashirama's emotions/heart.....
they figured each other's weak spots as children....i really think madara used one of these techs to survive...
otherwise...why didn't he just keep attacking the village....he had hashirama dna to regenerate????
because he lost an eye i bet....i have this feeling that it's the same as when obito/nagato were using jins/paths....their puppets had rinnegan but they shouldn't have had them
that one rinnegan of madara's turn both nagato's eyes into rinnegan....
or it could be like others have mentioned....that EMS blocks the eye from blinding....

I don't think Izanagi is necessary to explain how Madara survived, since he has already explained it: during his battle (or multiple battles?) with Harashima he took some of his cells, and used it to heal his wound.
Izanagi or Izanami ? I think those eyes of Madara is the same as Danzo's eyes that it can be reset to create a new you ? I think!
my excitement overwhelmed me

i'm wondering how madara was able to rewrite history instead of the immediate events
is there another more powerful version of izanagi than the one used by obito/danzou?
madara changed days of history....
Madara's ability to break any established Jutsu logic is really somethings else...
Not only can he summon Susanoo without eyes but he can use Izanagi despite his body being dead and without chakra not to mention somehow restore his sacrificed eye into a full-blown Rinnegan.
Seems that the real Madara's role in this story was to be an impossibly convenient plot device to connect the Akatsuki, Obito and the foundation of Konoha with Kaguya Ootsutsuki and Black Zetsu's Aizen level scheme to revive her.
I'm not sure he broke any logic. Itachi showed us already that ninja can seal an MS jutsu to where it won't activate until certain events take place. Madara used a timer. Itachi used the image of Obito's Sharingan.
Also, I don't know if we can say "Izanagi saved Madara from Hashirama", sense he chose not to revive until far later. He could've just revived himself the moment Hashirama stabbed him and dropped his guard... and then continued fighting.
