Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
When Core Prowler is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

Core Prowler Discussion

If you are going for the infect kill in commander then youll need all the infect and proliferate cards you can get. Here are some pretty good ones-

First thing, your deck is in standard, but you're not playing standard legal cards. I assume you meant modern? You should change it.
your deck has some really expensive cards for an infect deck. Black gets access to a few proliferate cards.
Replace Spread the Sickness with 4x Grim Affliction. You put on the counter, then proliferate, killing anything with toughness 2 or less for 3 mana. The prolif effect is cheaper, and thus faster. Since you're playing mono-black, which doesn't have access to the same type of pump, you want more prolif. Also, if one of your infect creatures gets blocked, you can prolif the counters on what they blocked. I think 99% of the time it's a better card. Replace the Phyrexian Digester and the Guardians of Meletis with Core Prowler. It's another infect creature, and if it dies, then you get to prolif. Replace the Blackcleave Goblins with 2 more Ichor Rats, since they have a better etb trigger. Replace the Dark Favor and Deviant Glee with 4x Unholy Strength. 1 for 2 on 4 cards is better than one card being 2 for 3, and 3 cards at 1 for 2. Unholy Strength is also cheaper in dollar amounts.

Looks like you're going for -1/-1 counters a lot. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction, and Core Prowler would all speed things up much easier where -1/-1 counters are concerned, considering you can proliferate with them.

I am planning to build an EDH deck with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the general, and I know that she is an immensely popular EDH general, but I still wish to make a deck with her, because angels are one of my favorite creature types in this game and Phyrexia is one of my favorite factions in this game.
The idea that I have for my deck will, naturally, be to use Atraxas ability to place additional counters on my permanents: specifically, +1/+1 counters on my creatures and loyalty counters on my planeswalkers.
First, for other proliferation cards beyond Atraxa, I am planning to use Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine , Fuel for the Cause , Inexorable Tide, Spread the Sickness , Steady Progress , Thrummingbird , and Viral Drake; I will not use Volt Charge, because my deck will not support the color red, Core Prowler , because it simply is too weak, and neither Plaguemaw Beast nor Throne of Geth , because my deck will not be generating large quantities to tokens to sacrifice to the abilities of those permanents. I am currently uncertain about Grim Affliction and Tezzeret's Gambit, so I shall await feedback from other users here regarding those cards.
Second, I will need a method for placing +1/+1 counters on my creatures initially, before I can multiply them, so I am planning to use the following cards to achieve that goal: Archangel of Thune, Ghave, Guru of Spores , Daghatar the Adamant , Kalonian Hydra, Forgotten Ancient, and Echoes of the Kin Tree . If anyone has any suggestions for further cards, I will greatly appreciate them.
Third, for planeswalkers, I will be seeking to use planesawalkers with powerful ultimate abilities, preferably those that grant emblems, and some of the planeswalkers whom I am considering are Tamiyo, Field Researcher , Ajani Steadfast, Ajani Unyielding, Narset Transcendent , Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth Tirel, and at least one version of Sorin. It is not a high priority, but I would like to ensure that all colors are represented equally, or nearly equally, among planeswalkers in my deck.
Fourth, I have a number of wild cards, cards that do not contribute to the overall theme of the deck but are still very nice to use. Thus far, every EDH deck of mine has both a Gilded Lotus and a Thran Dynamo, but, with a deck that uses the proliferate mechanic, perhaps I could use Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice in their places, since I will be able to increase the number of counters on them. I believe that every green EDH should contain a Seedborn Muse, so mine shall, as well, especially because she will work well with contagion clasp and contagion engine. I have a Mirari's Wake and Privileged Position in each of my green/white EDH decks and a True Conviction in every white deck, so this one shall, as well. Would Lux Cannon work in this deck? I am considering it, but wish for feedback before I actually purchase it. Also, a deck such as this should definitely have Doubling Season, but that card is currently very expensive, so I shall need to wait either for it to be reprinted or for me to have a great amount of surplus money to spend.
What does everyone else say about this? What ideas can you offer me for an EDH deck centered around Atraxa?

Inspiring Call can help giving you extra protection + Draw. Especially useful against someone that has a lot of Board Wipes.
Proliferate can easily turn into a broken mechanic into the right environment, since Ezuri cares about counters on you and in your creatures, more reason to try to fit one or more cards with this ability. Viral Drake is certainly my first choice. Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, Fuel for the Cause, Contagion Engine, Core Prowler all of them can find a place in your deck (if you want to of course). Just be carefull, because if your opponents are playing with infect you probably wouldn't want to proliferate yourself.
