Gloodizzle I like Sylvan Library, slotting that one in. I'm afraid Academy Rector and Doubling Season will draw too much heat from the table, it's not uncommon for those two cards to quickly get out of hand.

Seems like a really cool deck idea. Pillowfort it up, politics with tons of infectables, watch everyone slowly die off. There are some options you could run but obviously the better the card the higher the cost. There are a ton of really great enchantments you could run, like Sylvan Library for better draw, Sphere of Safety helps to protect you as well as works great with enchants. Academy Rector is another interesting politic piece because if someone for whatever reason kills it off you have plenty of choices to grab depending on the situation.

Additionally there are stax effects you could run with to help secure your safety and reduce the chances of people being able to respond Stasis is awesome for this. Aura of Silence more potential protection, an obvious (but expensive) choice is Doubling Season I just picked one up myself because I imagine the prices are going to keep going up on it.

Anyways there are a ton of different ways you can take Atraxa, I am actually still trying to figure out what I am going to do with mine exactly.

Here's my deck if you wanted to see another perspective and/or get some ideas!

Hey check out my deck Atraxa, Super Squadron

DarkLaw I really like the idea of a one sided humility (plus turning off activated abilities, which means fetchlands as well lol) but with 8 mana it's almost never going to be's surely a great target for Academy Rector, which usually gets me the real humility in my Augustin's $t4ks. Not sure if it's worth a slot in a deck that already has humility included and has no problem with it being a two sided effect.

Hello, I've just seen this and I run the same deck so I thought I would give you some ideas that seem to be crazy in my deck. Omniscience is brilliant and so is Humility . Put this with Academy Rector can be so funny! I also quite like Planar Bridge. Sorin Markov is brilliant fun (for you at least). My build does win, but I tend to get hated on so I kinda need to work on that myself ha.

Alright XtremeManaFlood, now the list shows how I play the deck at the moment. Fabricate might arrive just in time before my next commander session on wednesday because I've ordered it yesterday. It would replace trinket mage then, unless I cut something else to play both.

I think about cutting Revoke Existence and Mind Stone for Mystic Remora and Windfall or something else on the maybe list or to play fabricate AND trinket mage. By now it's really just fine tuning the deck and some exchanges won't even show in most games. It's mostly stuff like Academy Rector or Tezzeret the Seeker , which show me when something is missing in the deck because when I have the option to put something on the board for free and I can't find a solution for the current situation or set up a kill it means I need to change something.

Sundial is a piece that tends to be ignored, but it can counter all EOT actions your opponents might want to pull off, it can counter an opponent's Mana Drain in your own turn or anything else that you rather don't want to happen. I've thought about removing it after I cut mana vortex but it's just too cool and it always catches someone by surprise and makes them feel really stupid. It makes "correct" plays like casting a vampiric tutor EOT become absolutely bad, lol.

Mechanized production is something I probably but back in the deck again because it's another win option, even when put on a mana artifact. And there's Academy Rector to get it, if the other targets make no sense. With a sphere it's probably game over if you are in a somehow decent position. The problem is always what should be cut for a new that card better than anything that is already in the deck?

The phyrexian metamorph is something that looks awesome but often just happens to be a sol ring for 3 mana and 2 life because you effectively prevented any good stuff from coming into play. You should have a look at this card in your games and check how often it really shines and how often it is not that useful. I did eventually cut it but you have to see yourself if it's worth the slot.

Pattern of Rebirth is a perfectly fine card even without Boonweaver Giant in my experience. As long as you have fatties you want to cheat into play, sacrifice outlets and some dorks to put the aura on, it's functionally quite similar to Natural Order. It's slightly harder to enable (needs a sac outlet) but is able to get non-green creatures like Mike and Sun Titan. Also, Academy Rector will benefit from getting another tool to grab.

Obviously this is higher cmc, but I feel like Venser, the Sojourner could be great. Can be abusive with things like Gilded Drake, or temporarily get rid of a stax effect you might not want for that turn. Also Academy Rector seems too good not to have considering some of your wincons are enchantments. Looks like a great deck though!
