Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Discussion
3 hours ago
Hey thanks for the suggestions Xion16.
Originally when I first started playing commander back at around Battle for Zendikar, my first commander deck that I had started was one for Vorel of the Hull Clade. Originally there I was going to play that very card as with Vorel it is so much better. However then along came Commander 2016 with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and I knew I wanted to instead build that type of deck and so my vorel deck was token apart before I had finished it.
Since Atraxa is my commander and not Vorel any longer, it will be more difficult to have both Vorel and Magistrate's Scepter out at the same time I feel. Without vorel it is a lot slower to simply proliferate counters on this and without the ability to double it oftentimes its going not be as effective considering it removes 3 counters as well. I feel like As Foretold or Oracle's Vault are likely better choices for this deck. I like the card and all but I don't think it works too well in here because most turns i'm not going to have the mana in the early game to put counters on this thing regularly. However I will add it to my maybeboard if I ever do decide its worth using if I was to include more tutors or something is to come along in a new set that might be of use with it.
As for Hatred I really like that idea actually, and I'm sure it would work rather well in my meta. As most people either can't do anything about Ataxa with flying at first early on due to no available blockers / not having removal, or at times will just not block because of the deathtouch. So I think this will be a fun little surprise to try out maybe once I get a copy of this card.
If you happen to have any other suggestions for the deck feel free to share them as I don't get to play commander all to often usually at the moment even though I love the format, and the deck in actual cards is not quite done yet.

The thing with this deck though, is the fact that I don't have most of this in paper right now. If and when I do decide to build Nekusar this is something what I would want it too look like. Right now I only own about 40/100 cards of this deck (This is including some of the lands and the commander) and most of that is mainly the cheaper stuff. I'm currently focusing on improving my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Sliver Overlord which are my two other commanders and I so I haven't acquired anything recently for this deck yet.

esper is artifact based combo most of the times otherwise you may try Breya, Etherium Shaper thats only less artifact centered or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice where you can try all possible way to build her. For combos....Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek + Krark-Clan Ironworks and Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith\Grim Monolith + Sensei's Divining Top are the most famous. Except for the second one it depends on what commander you will choose

New to Esper
I have a league coming up where I can sign up with 3 commanders, all with the same color pie set up.I do not usually play Esper, so this is a chance to let me do something different. I have decided I am going to run Zur the Enchanter, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , and Sydri, Galvanic Genius for the league matches (a 3 month period, 2 games a week), three very different commanders, but all the same color!
I usually play super aggressive decks like Rakdos, Lord of Riots or Maelstrom Wanderer, but I was hoping to get a really good control/lifegain feel that isn't super threatening but can definitely win.
I have read a ton on Zur, and i know how to make a really wicked Sydri artifact deck, but Oloro has me absolutely stumped. He looks good and I have checked out EDHrec for some of the Esper goodstuff, but it feels like a Karlov deck, but with just a splash of blue. Am I wrong to think this is good enough or am I totally off?
Title Local Meta
I will mainly be facing 75% decks that are heavily net decked but don't have more than $400 bucks in any one deck (except maybe one of the wizrad control players)The ones I have had issues with are mainly Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, Name any Sliver Commander, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.There is also a Krenko, Mob Boss deck that gets very lucky once in a while but gets shut down by mainly other players, and an Omnath, Locus of Rage that seems well put together but generally can't play for beans.
The League rules were just posted at the LGS, infinite combo's are allowed, but have multiplicative dings on overall score for the league every time they are used. Mass Land destruction and Hand disruption are also getting dinged. Looks like they are going the "everyone has fun route", which I happen to like. Keep in mind I am aiming to win the whole thing folks, but don't want to resort to games where I have to rely on combo's or other "degenerate" tactics to do it.
Also, I might add that "you win the game" conditions do not do anything for me at my LGS, as points and packs are awarded with kills, so please keep that in mind when making any suggestions.

enpc, I coined it 'Chronostax'
Also, apologies if the link doesn't work sometimes. I get a bit fickle with the private/unprivate of my unfinished decks.

I almost finished my Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck.
Guess now I have to add and use Atraxa, Praetors' Voice instead... Man... I was so close to finishing the deck too...

If you are going for a true tribal theme on the deck, I'd suggest removing any card that isn't immediately thematic to Hydras. Things like Fish, Wyrm/Wurm/Worms, and large snakes make sense because they can look or fit into the mold similar to a hydra. Many of those types of creatures are very strong and beat face so there are plenty of good choices for replacement.
Suggestions for adding:
Intruder Alarm: Can make life very easy if you need to make a lot of tokens or creatures for any given reason.
Honored Hydra: Two Hydras for the price of one.
Argothian Wurm: Potential land destruction or a big creature. Win win right?
Armada Wurm: TWO BIG WURMS
Autochthon Wurm: EVEN BIGGER WURM
Bellowing Tanglewurm: Just an overall green staple
Suggestions for taking out:
All of the Gods
Anything that's not a Hydra

Well let's say that I have Atraxa, Praetors' Voice out and they suspend something with Jhoira of the Ghitu, let's say Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. At the end of my turn, when I proliferate, could I add a time counter?
