Astral Cornucopia Discussion

Yeah, the crux of the problem is that Stuffy Doll on its own demands 2 or 3 additional effects to achieve an even average effectiveness. Those effects demand card slots, and offer very little synergy with other cards. At the end of the day you've committed 10 slots to facilitate making a card you might not even see average.
Of course you can just build Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect and throw in Muldrotha, the Gravetide. I don't think it's as effective as just straight budget Muldrotha card value beatdown, but it's relatively viable.
Atraxa doesn't have infect, so I'd build toward getting that first counter on and getting as many proliferate triggers as possible. DrukenReaps mentioned Ichor Rats, which is so essential to this game plan it's basically your lieutenant. Pick up anything with infect and evasion, anything that gives you an effect with a proliferation, and take advantage of things you can proliferate yourself. The vivid lands, Fathom Mage, Gyre Sage, Astral Cornucopia, Everflowing Chalice, and Pentad Prism all come to mind from my own counter counter deck building experience, but I'm sure there are others outside of .
Muldotha will just be a good card in the deck. Use her to rebuild your board or reuse dead ETBs whenever possible, but don't build expecting to have her in any given game.

Pentavus & Thopter Squadron can give you a ton of 1/1 flyers if you have the mana with all the +1/+1 counters you got going on. With Doubling Season and Astral Cornucopia you ether go wide or huge with ease.
Magistrate's Scepter; who needs many win cons when you can have infinite turns to find your win con.
Black Sun's Zenith Is if you have enough counters flying around a one sided board wipe that is repeatable. As an added bonus you can do it small to wipe out small stuff that you mostly survive and then proliferate the counters up latter as you see fit as proliferate is "you choose" ability thus can avoid your creatures at this point.

I'd like to argue against putting x-costs as zero. In practice, one almost never casts an x card for 0. Instead, one would be more accurately served by putting cards at the minimum cost that nets a worthwhile effect. Astral Cornucopia would be placed with the other 3-drops, for example.

I imagine the card would be hard to use unless your whole deck is focused on charge counters. My Atraxa deck is all about charge counters and proliferating, so it works well in there as a payoff card. When you're using cards like Energy Chamber, Coretapper, Astral Cornucopia, Voltaic Key, and Everflowing Chalice you can get enough mana to go infinite.
Not really a competitive EDH strategy, but profilerating is alot of fun.

It's a good start, take a look at my Sliver EDH deck. I have it all organized, I've tested it a lot, and a ton of maybe cards that could work in it. Some I do want in it but I am a college student so I'm not dropping a ton of money on a single card. I will say though do drop Astral Cornucopia, it's so expensive to get any real value out of it, basically waste a turn. If you're really looking for something like that, Zendikar Resurgent does also waste a turn but in the long run it's a ton of mana, you get to draw cards, and all your lands produce double. Also it helps all future lands out so It doesn't cap out on how much mana you put in it. Do check out my deck it can probably help a lot! Have a great day! :)
