Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Discussion
1 hour ago
I second the guy suggesting Privileged Position, but instead of Greater Auramancy I'd pair it with Sterling Grove because it'll search out Doubling Season in a pinch. Also consider Leyline of Sanctity/Witchbane Orb if your meta is burn-heavy, as burn spells/abilities have to target you to be redirected to the walkers.
I also second the guy who suggested swapping generals to Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and dropping red. I used to run this deck with Sliver Queen for tokens or Cromat for blocking versatility/regeneration, and I really didn't wanna give up Apocalypse effects... but I gave in and I'm glad I was talked into trying it.
Is Parallel Lives worth the slot? Produces more blockers but doesn't add loyalty counters. I get Intangible Virtue, but I'd consider swapping for Brave the Sands to get more blocking per token, +1/+1 only helps if you're blocking cards with power 1 or toughness 1-2, which doesn't happen as often mid-late game when you need the blockers. If you're running low on tokens or need ones that fly consider Bitterblossom.

My deck is a mainstream Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck. Budget-ish but very effective in multiplayer. Link: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/18-03-17-superfriends-with-benefits/

@feyn_do_alduin - Thank you for the kind words!
Bow of Nylea is very versatile, which is great in edh. It's a good card! I was thinking I would never use the counters, but then I thought about using them on Ezuri himself, and I was sold. I'll try to fit it in!
I had not seen Soul Foundry before. The only downside with this is that, should the artifact be destroyed (a common occurrence in edh, as I'm sure you know), then I would lose the creature. But , that said, it's still a good card, and U'll see if I can squeeze it in the build.
Master Biomancer is one I hear often. The only issue with this is that it gives counters to creatures before they hit the board; meaning, they won't trigger Ezuri. Now obviously I have creatures that are already too big, but I want as many experience counters as I can get, since that's how the deck grows. Thus, although it is a great card, Biomancer will most likely not see play in my build. Were this an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice build, however...
You asked about what to put in if the infect cards were cut. I've actually been considering removing that aspect, myself. My playgroup has been engaged in a rather cancerous arms race as of late, with the likes of Sen Triplets, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and Sliver Overlord. So I'm trying to clean up our group. Were I to cut infect, I would go full-blown token generation. I would introduce such cards as Hangarback Walker, Awakening Zone, Hornet Queen, as well as Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor on top of the already included Doubling Season. What do you think about that? Let me know :)

I know you are looking for splashy creatures but Akroma's Memorial makes even a germ splashy. Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort this would simply be a good idea for what you want. Domri Rade ult can also make lowly germs splashy.

very nice deck! i was thinking maybe Atraxa, Praetors' Voice wold be a better commander, as it also gives access to the blue color. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar would be pretty goo, along with Winding Constrictor. Verdurous Gearhulk is also a must. Rot Shambler is also nice. +1 for sure.

Okay, from what you told me I think I have some good suggestions for you.
What you'll want to try to find is cards with the proliferate mechanic for a counter-based deck. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a really good new one. One of the best is Contagion Engine, since it proliferates twice, and Contagion Clasp works as a mini-engine. Some that I included in my Atraxa deck are Steady Progress, Inexorable Tide, Thrummingbird, Viral Drake, and Tezzeret's Gambit. In case you didn't know, Loyalty counters on planeswalkers count for proliferate, so every time you proliferate you can add a counter to each planeswalker you coutnrol.
Also, for Super Friends Planeswalker decks, all of the Oaths can be very useful. In particular for your commander deck, I would consider Oath of Chandra, Oath of Gideon, Oath of Nissa, and Oath of Ajani, although Jace and Liliana's can be useful, too.
The best counter deck card is Doubling Season, but if you don't have the extra lung to sell to buy that card, Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, and potentially Primal Vigor are good, too. I also recommend Deepglow Skate.
Other than that, any of the Abzan cards that give abilities to creatures with +1/+1 counters like Tuskguard Captain, Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Mer-Ek Nightblade will all be very useful.
