Crystalline Crawler goes infinite with Cathars' Crusade and Marath. Just saw the combo online somewhere. :)

Necro on Kneel before Atraxa

keithallenlaw : Thanks, i try many ways to play this deck. I use proliferation trigger ( Bloodchief Ascension, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Crystalline Crawler, Tangle Wire and others ). But i dont use my general as a center of this EDH deck. Its only additional possibility to play, and proligeration trigger is just bonus. A very good bonus, as I have to admit :DThe main problem of fast decks is that their breath may soon be over and the game ends for them...and that is why i choose mid-game and late-game decks. But win with infinite combo in Atraxa in first four turns, that's something I will not reject. Play fun is good, but play competetive on tournament is better :)

Rhys_Fahey : This combo can work. When Thespian becomes a copy of Depths, the legendary rule will be applied and you have to choose which Dark Depths to remain. Of course, you are choosing without the counter (Thespian Stage). The original goes to the graveyard. Now a trigger of Dark Depths runs without counters and sacrifices this land to create the Marit Lage token.

Thank you for the compliment. I do my best ;)

Aureth on Reyshai +1/+1 counters *HELP NEEDED*

Doom Blade should be a better piece of removal. I make it a hard rule to always have at least 1 versatile exile effect, Anguished Unmaking should help out. You also don't have much artifact or enchantment removal. I also highly doubt that your deck is fast enough to not need a single boardwipe, e.g. Austere Command, Merciless Eviction, Wrath of God, possibly even Cyclonic Rift. Other than that you just seem to be a little oversaturated on ramp that doesn't scale well into the late game to make your Genesis Wave larger. Some scaling ramp would be Crystalline Crawler, Growing Rites of Itlimoc/Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun  Flip as these pieces of ramp allow you to spend huge amounts of mana in one turn on their own. I would also suggest looking into Hour of Promise, it doesn't become useless when you run out of basics. Also since you are new I don't know if you are aware of our lord and savior Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

Here is a funny combo I did in draft once that I am able to do in my anafenza counters deck, so Animation Module + Durable Handicraft/ Cathars' Crusade and enough mana = an instant board if you have something like Crystalline Crawler and the crusade it is just an infinitely increasing sized board. I felt it was quite funny because the deck is also has a tarkir theme to it basically when kaladesh came out I had the deck enter the industrial age of technological development in some cases it jumped to future era level of developement

usaDiabetic thanks for the suggestions man!

I agree I could probably make some cuts to give Atraxa some shoes. I agree Path of Ancestry should also go in here, I will probably cut the the Scry for it. Trade tap for a tap. Vesuva I think would do about the same as the rest of the lands I have, there's really nothing in my group worth copying.

And a lot of the cards you recommended I've had in and are super strong but I have people who can win on turn 5 so I had to cut some of the slower stuff unfortunately. Astral Cornucopia was a bit to slow so Crystalline Crawler took its place. Prime Speaker Zegana was another card I couldn't utilize because I couldn't get it out fast enough. Hangarback will be something I playtest though. Managorger Hydra is strong but will die before I can beef him up. Corpsejack Menace is two more but does a little more for me than Constrictor.

I have Verdict as my wrath but Black Suns may take a slot here.

Do appreciate the suggestions, you've given me some stuff to think about haha

Crystalline Crawler is a beast in this deck

I would swap out Workhorse for Crystalline Crawler. They are similar but the crawler makes any colour of Mana and is a 4 cmc as opposed to 6 cmc
