At the beginning of your upkeep, put a time counter on As Fortold.
Once each turn, you may pay rather than pay the mana cost for a spell you cast with converted mana cost X or less, where X is the number of time counters on As Fortold.

As Foretold Discussion
1 hour ago
Poaralion You're right, As Foretold is not really useful but I liked playing Omniscience with Metallurgic Summonings in late game and really worked well for me, and I think it would be even better with Pull from Tomorrow, so thank you very much!!

As Foretold is really slow, I think you don't get enough value.
Omniscience is not really helpfull here. You have to hardcast it and if you can then you should have enough mana to do whatever you want anyway, or you cheat in with Tezzeret's ult, but it's really hard and not a good plan. Else, without any draw effect, you will maybe empty your hand one turn and then dead card on board.
I really like the Metallurgic Summonings btw !

Hmm LVL_666, I never thought about storage lands, that's a really good idea. I won't cut down to 33 lands though because A) through play testing I've found 36 is a nice consistent number. And B) I seriously have the worst luck with lands.
They may try to make the Planeswalkers in Planeswalker decks "unplayable" but that doesn't always work, just look at the Ajani from M19, the Planeswalker deck Planeswalker is definitely better. Tezzeret, Master of Metal is a Planeswalker deck card, and his ult is amazing (the plus is nice to since it can help me find Rings and The Chain Veil). I personally like Mu Yanling, she can make Atraxa unblockable if it has to come with that and can draw me cards (if I'm desperate). Also, that ult is like my dream ult "Tap all creatures your opponents control and take an extra turn". That tap ability is nice, but it's the extra turn I'm after (like Teferi, Timebender, another Planeswalker deck Planeswalker in this deck).
Huh, thought As Foretold was in here, I must have cut it for some stupid reason. I've been thinking about Aminatou, the Fateshifter for blink, but one Ive been thinking about putting in is Estrid, the Masked. Her minus is nice since it allows my to protect my Planeswalkers to a certain degree.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to leave more if you feel like it.

So, after looking at your landbase I have some suggestions. Since you're running Atraxa you have the unique opportunity to take advantage of Proliferate. Some lands that may be of use to you are the TimeSpiral Storage Lands, aka: Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, and Saltcrusted Steppe. Then to support your proliferation madness you could use Mage-Ring Network, Gemstone Mine (because you could just keep proliferating the counters on it, making it punishment free), and Mirrodin's Core. To make room, i'd try and cut your manabase down to around 33 lands. I would probably cut some of the Check Lands, but I would definitely cut Krosan Verge for one of the previously mentioned mentioned cards I suggested.
Also, for the love of everything sane and holy why on earth are you running Mu Yanling?! Wizards even admitted that the cards from that set were made to be intentionally unplayable. The proof is from: Creating Global Series:JIANG YANGGU & MU YANLING:
Now, to properly set expectations: these are essentially special Planeswalker Decks for a Chinese audience. Despite the fact that they are packaged together, I would suggest thinking of them as Planeswalker Decks, not Duel Decks.
Planeswalker decks were purposefully watered down, a product that had little to offer more experienced players. Sorry for the rant, but all i'm trying to say is that you have much better options than Mu Yanling. Try Aminatou, the Fateshifter...just anything but that.
On an additional note, you could also run As Foretold because Atraxa can get that count up very high very quickly. 2 counters every turn (your upkeep + endstep) means you could pop out a free planeswalker on your turn, tap out, and still be able to play responses during other players turns (it says "Once EACH turn", not "Once on your turn") so that would be something to take advantage of.
I think i'll cut myself off here...I have a few more thoughts regarding your deck but i'll playtest it a bit more before I comment again. Good stuff so far though!

A lot of nice ideas in these posts. I ordered the cards in the deck list and after some real life playtesting I'll consider incorporating your suggestions. Below are a few responses to these posts.
I left out Force of Will to keep the cost down. Same with the various low and zero cost mana artifacts. If I was willing to spend more at this point in time then I would add some of these cards. Perhaps if the original deck list falls flat on its face I'll change my mind.
Back to Basics looks enticing, but even though most of my lands are Basic Islands, the 4x Forsaken City are key for Stasis upkeep. Reliquary Tower is also nice once the lock is in especially if Howling Mine has also come out.
I. Hate. Planeswalkers. I stopped playing Magic around 15 years ago and when I came back to it recently to discover these essentially uber creatures I immediately despised them for breaking the way I feel the game should flow. For this reason I am against including any Planeswalkers.

There's also no reason to not be playing Force of Will in your mono-blue control deck. This will help immensely if your opponent tries to do something tricky, like resolve a Stoneforge Mystic that's going to grab Batterskull or casting Liliana of the Veil.
Probably the derpiest card for Stasis is As Foretold. Like, I don't think your opponent can actually win if you resolve both. You will be able to cast Counterspells with impunity, while never having to tap an Island except to pay for Stasis.
Lastly, Meditate, Chrome Mox, and Lotus Petal are all good options. Meditate fills a similar role to Chronatog, but helps you find more answers and threats. Chrome Mox and Lotus Petal allow you to go "SURPRISE, NERDS! Turn 1 Stasis on the draw!" or even turning out an early As Foretold.

@Murphy77 yes its a more budget build an cool too. I dont see the reason to include 3x As Foretold in your build, i mean you hit the first counter on t4 and you can cast something for one mana for free. Aether Vial would be more reasonable. and with 20 creatures ( i mean i have only 23 creatures too) the chance is rarely here tor hit nothing with AEthermage's Touch and for me when you play this card you want to hit something bigger to like a (6 drop or 7 drop). But i like your take on the Hostage Taker and Gonti. I can playtest my deck soon at an FNM so i hope it performs quite well^^ sorry for bad english

Thanks moulcarve made some changes that you recommended; I removed the Servant of the Conduit for Aether Theorist and added Glimmer of Genius for some card draw. Proliferate is interesting but playing a card for one energy sounds a bit low in value but I look forward to a build with As Foretold and Suspend Cards such as Ancestral Vision with Aetherworks Marvel and some energy producers because that sounds spicy and any other opinions or critiques of the deck you know where to drop them
