I recently purchased a Marshall JVM 205h. I'm not too sure I like it too much as I play mostly Doom Metal. If I can't get a good tone out of this amp what amps do you think would be better suited.I was thinking about the Orange or50. I would not like to spend more than $1100, but I will spend a little more if it is REALLY worth it.

You can get a doom tone out of anything. But the OR50 would be much much better for that stuff.

If you don't use a pedal, I say keep the mids a bit low and add resonance/low end, and use high gain on the orange channel or lower gain on the red channel. If you do end up using a pedal, use a muff variant with more than 3 knobs (a blackout effector musket, way huge swollen pickle, etc.) to use on your clean channel.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

Try an orange channel with the gain low and bass high. Mids to taste and highs just enough to give you the clarity you want.

Randall is coming out with a new amp specially aimed for Doom. Comes with a built in fuzz circuit too. http://www.randallamplifiers.com/th_product/eod-88/

Fortin designed, not a clone of Orange or something. Very interested in this myself. But then again seeing how long it took for Randall to get Satan on market you might not want to hold your breath and keep waiting...

Wow that looks terrible. Aesthetically.

It should at least have a toned down aesthetic variant.

True. It kind of scream 20 year old. But then again on a smoky doom bar gig the looks might be right at home.

So it can evoke Mood instead of Doom?

Depends what you mean by great doom tone. If you mean the new bands that play fuzzed out farted out bassier amps like Electric Wizard and such...I first wouldn't call that a great tone but yeah, with some kinda of buzzy distortion up front and the amp set to dull you can probably get it. I'd guess RAT would do really well for that kind of tone.

If you want Candlemass or Solitude Aeturnus doom tone, which I consider the good doom tone, you can probably get it from the amp itself, but if you're not getting it from the amp my guess you're after the first
