Corrupted Crossroads Discussion

@Oloro_Magic I've been doing some updates to the copy version with all the info I've gotten from asking various questions on here as well as after talking to some friends. I really think that is the best version so far that I've had. I ended up taking Corrupted Crossroads out for Mana Confluence . I don't get the colorless but it really helps beef up my colored mana sources. This mana base seems to be the best so far too. It's got 14 blue sources to help reach double blue to emerge EDF, it has 8 black sources to help cast dismember and things out of the board (10 if i'm casting Distended Mindbender , it has 8 red sources to cast Kozilek's Return out of the board, and still has 21 colorless sources. Also, it's not just that the gryff triggers sanctum to get EDF. I can go get EDF, Thought-knot, or smasher depending on the situation. The deck can also have explosive draws like T1 mimic, T2 thought-knot, T3 smasher which can deal 18 damage by turn 3. I like where the deck is situated at this moment. My lgs doesn't have a huge modern following so there isn't a ton of degenerate decks running around, just a bunch of people playing things they like or find interesting. The only thing I feel like may be out of place is Warping Wail . It may be better as Collective Brutality or something else that has utility.

@Oloro_Magic yeah I know Cavern of Souls would help but at the moment I don't have any and I'm not really looking forward to spending the money on them at the moment. Where I play, the modern crowd isn't the largest and counter magic isn't the biggest worry so I can get by without them for now. I do kind of agree with you though, because I've been leaning toward the copy version. I actually feel like the mana base there is better. It has 10 dedicated blue sources making the double blue easier to hit, while also having 8 red sources for something like Kozilek's Return out of the sideboard. The only thing is I would like to run some black cards out of the sideboard as well like Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Transgress the Mind , or even Distended Mindbender and it's tough at the moment. I would like to replace Corrupted Crossroads for something that's functionally the same except doesn't care about being devoid. Besides Cavern of Souls can you think of something I could use that would provide colorless and also add colored mana?
As far as Eldrazi Skyspawner and the other 3 drops, they're there for the emerge creatures. Wretched Gryff is a 3/4 flyer that draws a card on cast for 3 mana and Elder Deep-Fiend will typically only cost 4. It's probably the easiest way to curve into Elder Deep-Fiend on turn 3 or 4. One reason not to cut Wretched Gryff is because it triggers Sanctum of Ugin so I can go and find Elder Deep-Fiend .

Always cool to see a creaturebased Atraxa deck!
Altered Ego is a nice manasink, and with so many creatures with effects on them can do insane stuff. Or you just copy something fun from your opponents.
As for euqipment, Helm of the Host is manahungry, but works well both with Atraxa and with other creatures with big bodies and/or strong effects.
I might be completely missing something, but with no cards with devoid in your list I'd probably replace Corrupted Crossroads, even with a basic.

I found out that Ayli is featured in the super cool art of Curse of Wizardry! It's also featured in the flavour texts of Hand of Emrakul, Landbind Ritual, Last Kiss, Corrupted Crossroads, Consuming Sinkhole, Blinding Drone and Eldrazi Monument.

Instants Out: Sleight of Mind this was your only color word change without a unique effect like play form graveyard that also didn't change landwalk for you commander.
Instants In: Reality Shift seems in theme, 2 mana exile creature
I think you have too many lands that come into play tapped. Are you running any spells with devoid that synergize with Corrupted Crossroads? I would cut down on lands (to 33) to make room for the artifacts.
