Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Discussion

JackQuilldrake on The Last and The Dragonspeaker

1 day ago

Update: 6/16/18

Extensively updated the description, as well as the decklist which hasn't been updated since the year Breed Lethality was released. For posterity I uploaded my current decklist, though there are plenty of cards I want to cut already, for instance Primal Vigor, Render Silent, and Juniper Order Ranger

The first of which just being really just redundant and a worse version of Doubling Season, not want I want to be playing when there are other cool things available, like Mirari's Wake or Abzan Ascendancy.

As far as Render Silent is concerned, it's just bad. It just is. I have enough off-theme counter spells in the deck as it is. There are far, far better things to be playing that are on theme, such as Draining Whelk that I'd love to play.

And for the last card, it's just boring. And it just sits there costing five mana and waiting to get removed. Don't get me wrong, Juniper Order Ranger is great and it's good in our deck, but there's a lot of other cards in the list that are already putting in that work better, at lower cost, such as Corpsejack Menace and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

Thank you for your very constructive comment!

I have experienced a lot of that "targeting" you speak of. But on one hand, I kind of want to keep him around, at least as a creature, because with Platinum Angel, Hanna's Custody and Darksteel Forgeout, it doesn't matter what they do, usually.

Breya doesn't have green, though it's a good suggestion. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice was my runner-up, but it really depends on which colorrs I can remove from my deck more effectively.

Why are those two lands banned? I can somewhat understand Karakas, because it's so blatantly anti-commander, but Tolarian Academy?

AAnyway, thanks a bunch for your suggestions!

Since you're running Atraxa without Atraxa as a commander, maybe you could put Atraxa, Praetors' Voice in the 98 (98 because you can EDH is 100 cards, including the commander(s) (right now, you're at 102 -don't know if that was an oversight or you're still editing))?

Inspiring Call offers protection and card draw.

Cathars' Crusade is needed for a heavy creature deck, and Cauldron of Souls can recur those creatures.

And Forgotten Ancient may not fly like Ishai, but he gets counters for spells cast by any player... and he shares.

Also, please take a look at my deck. I think I changed only about half from the precon because there were so many good +1/+1 counter cards.

JoJoem on Discard/Mill/Hosing Deck Need Help!

1 week ago

Hey all. I've been exploring different color options and so much possibilities opened up for me. Originally I wanted to toy with withering in order to slowly choke out opponents. However, now I've found myself enjoying the concept of disarming opponents before threats even make it out.

I was planning on using Atraxa, Praetors' Voice because she has good colors for the task, and the proliferate can be of use with many counter abilities.

Ideally I'd love to beat the hell out of my opponent while making them discard and mill. I'd also love to force opponents to search their own libraries. Fertilid + Ob Nixilis, Unshackled and similar combos would be so satisfying for me.

You guys are very amazing and helpful so I am appreciative of any inputs!

Hi, i am building my own superfriends deck right now i really like the version you have decided to go with, with minimum creatures and use tokens as blockers :) I was wondering if you might give your thougths on some planeswalkers/cards you haven't included and some more feedback on your inclusions?

What do you think of:

  • Garruk, Apex Predator: His emblem is weak in this deck, but he puts out very good blockers and has removal for both planeswalkers and creatures. What makes him excluded from the deck?

  • Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury: Her 2 first abilities seems very good with ramp and removal, is it not powerful enough to impact the board?

  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar: I see that he is not as powerful, but his tokens are very nice. I want to include him in my build as i have one, but what do you think of him and is he even the best gideon to include?

  • Sorin, Grim Nemesis: His +1 seems really good also since a lot of planeswalkers has a CMC of 4-5, and he has decent removal, i see that Sorin, Solemn Visitor emblem is very strong, but would you think running both would be an option?

  • Jace Beleren: Is his impact to little?

  • Kiora, the Crashing Wave: Her emblem seems to be much more impactful than Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath.

  • As Foretold: Somewhat early drop and seems good on curve with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

  • Sphere of Safety: Seems to be a good include with the decent amount of enchantments in the deck, doesn't it seem to be worth running as it will slow a lot of swarm strategies down?

With the printing of The Immortal Sun how have you been able to deal with it? Might it be to consider Krosan Grip to remove such a piece to make sure it wont be countered?

How have these performed?

Lastly, as planeswalkers are really great, it is hard to stop oneself from including to many, would you yourself like to run more than your 21 at the moment?

BMHKain on Jodah, The Walker that Never Was Returning Alive

@DrkNinja: Well I now have 31 cuts to make; But I have 3 cases to make first...

  1. Rowan Kenrith Yep. Her. You stated her +2 is a literal Suicide thought. But did you know it can also apply to you? Since we're dealing with all of your creatures attacking, Venser, the Sojourner's -1 Will make your army of tokens (And actual creatures) fearsome. You also stated her -2 does nothing. Tell that to Mu Yanling, whose -10 would tapped all enemy creatures & grant you another turn. From there, you can use Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's -2 to further fillup gas. Bonus Points if Humility is in play. The Emblem needs no comment. Let's just say it works wonders with Rings of Brighthearth; Targeting each opponent on the board whenever you use a Loyalty Ability.


  1. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice This was better off in decks that have more use in counters in general than just Loyalty. It's good as a Commander, but some of the best Walkers have R in it, so a big problem right there...

Let's look at the least competitive way to kill Atraxa with a crap commander...

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn

This is Tier 5 as it's nothing but Keywords. Atraxa has Flying, Vigilance, Deathtouch, & Lifelink. This Pteranadon is a 4/8 with the Aforementioned first two keywords as Atraxa, as well as Double Strike, Indestructible, & Trample.

At least Muldrotha, the Gravetide has many uses as a one card recursion engine: It can bring back Doubling Season, Mana Rocks, even Enchantments that are extremely invaluable for this deck.

Finally, & you'd be surprised when I say it:

  1. Gideon, Champion of Justice Yep. I want to add him. By adding more Loyalty just by using the +1 ability, you could make him into a fragging BEAST with the 0 ability, transforming him into an X/X Human Soldier creature with Indestructible, still a planeswalker, & CAN'T be Damaged (X equals Gideon's Loyalty the first time this is used.).

But what I really want him in is... well, crazy; his -15 ability: Exile all otther Permanents. Previously, this was criticized as an ability; much like Apocalypse, Decree of Annihilation, even the Banned from EDH Worldfire. But I promise you, it still has use. Since Teferi's Protection's release, it at least makes for a one sided Wrath that can potentially win you the game.

Okay. All three cases set in stone. I hope this comment asn't too much of a problem for you sir. I have 2 cards to keep in this deck, & a 3rd potentially to add later. If you approve, at least tell me what 31 cards to cut please... Thank you for your time... Later.

Phaetion on Comparing the Anthologies

2 weeks ago

Does anyone else feel that the second Commander Anthology is better than the first? Expensive, but comparing the two, this is the better anthology to choose to play out of the box.

The first deck had the Kaalia deck, and while Kaalia of the Vast being reprinted was great, the decklist just wasn't good. It's a precon that didn't age well. Especially when compared to Devour for Power, which has got a lot of staples in it. Some of the card choices are weak now, but there's no denying that it's the better stock list.

The first anthology had Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, which is a good card. I think it's more personal preference when I say Built from Scratch is better. That said, Guided by Nature gave a good starting point for Elf tribal decks. However, Daretti's deck was better out of the box because it didn't have an identity crisis like Freyalise's deck did.

The one time the first anthology is better than the second is Meren and Kalemne. Meren was the better deck (and the better legendary creature). Having said that, Kalemne did have the spicier cards like Blade of Selves and Fiery Confluence (and Urza's Incubator).

Then there's Derevi, Empyrial Tactician and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. I'm biased here, because I really am not a fan of C13. Derevi's deck represents this in a way because the list is torn between flicker and untap shenanigans. Breed Lethality, though, is more in demand, has a much better list, and has one, overarching theme (even though everyone and their mother has an Atraxa deck).

Let's also not forget the legendary frame from Dominaria, which is just the icing on the cake (The Partners look amazing with it). I had all the decks at one point myself, but I just fell in love with this Anthology and swiped it.

What do you guys think? Was I spot on? Anything I missed? And if you disagree that Vol. II is better than Vol. I, do explain why. Discuss away.
