Daghatar the Adamant Discussion

In response to your Card Creation comment, I was talking about the original Khans from Fate Reforged, not the newer ones from Dragons.

Redace878, in my opinion, Daghatar the Adamant is more flexible than Anafenza, the Foremost and the duo, he can use extra mana to generate counters with cards like Corpsejack Menace, Hardened Scales etc. This also affects cards like Enduring Scalelord.
SteelSentry, Ghave, Guru of Spores isn't supposed to be the commander. I view him more of as a combo piece to generate counters on my creatures with Cathars' Crusade and to make my creatures unblock-able with Champion of Lambholt. By payying 1 and 1, i can create a token and sacrifice a token to actaully increase counters on some creatures if i have cards like Corpsejack Menace and Hardened Scales out. Also if one of my creatures is about to die or be exiled i can use Ghave's ability to save some of the counters by turning them into tokens

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?

@MonsterHatchGames I'm trying to remove cards - not add them :P
Applicable to both your suggestions is that I am trying to keep the deck largely mono White (this is made clear in the description). The deck has no +1/+1 counter themes outside of Daghatar the Adamant and High Sentinels of Arashin. The deck does have a significant amount of token production but Doubling Season is a card that I neither own nor can afford/justify.

Winding Constrictor is a double edged sword. It gives negative counters as well, we were considering that until someone pointed that out. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice loves Contagion Engine. It is likely the pros outweigh the cons. Will grab a copy and give it a go.
Ghave, Guru of Spores and Solidarity of Heroes were considered. Wasn't sure what to cut for them. Would likely cut Daghatar the Adamant for Ghave. They have similar functions, but Ghave does it better.
It is so hard making final cuts.

Animar, Soul of Elements This commandeer is meh for counters, the colors get some options.
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice it's Atraxa.... she's Op and gives you every color for counters.
Look into "wither" "infect" "Proliferate"
has quite a bit of wither support, but no commanders that outwardly support it.

You have plenty of terrible commanders there: Sidar Jabari, Soramaro, First to Dream, Spirit of the Night, Skyfire Kirin, Shisato, Whispering Hunter, Geist of Saint Traft, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Asmira, Holy Avenger, Skeleton Ship, Tor Wauki, Sisters of Stone Death, Stangg, Chromium, Treva, the Renewer, Oros, the Avenger, Daghatar the Adamant, Johan, Sol'kanar the Swamp King, Vorosh, the Hunter, Vaevictis Asmadi, Atogatog and more.
Also you are still missing at least one semi-strong commander from the list, Seton, Krosan Protector

Oi! Whatcha think you're doing!? This is my thing ;P
I'd say you stray from the Abzan theme a bit, but meh.
Servant of the Scale is nice here, basically your modular without the artifact limitation while also being Abzan.
Tuskguard Captain goes well with your idea of adding bonuses.
Ivorytusk Fortress if you thought about splashing Abzan's last color.
Dragonscale General can do some nice things for you, such as reloading a Ballista or Triskelion that just fired. Works rather beautifully if you also got a Fortress down.
Daghatar the Adamant can help with counter movement, which is nice with Hardened Scales out.
Mer-Ek Nightblade will tip those Ballista shots in creature poison.
Incremental Growth (Khans of Tarkir version for theme) isn't a bad choice if you think you can get the mana.
Durable Handicraft if you're fine with breaking theme a bit more.
In general, if you're going to use Walking Ballista or Triskelion, you really benefit from more counter movement and placement. A lot of this deck though wants to be independent, with many creatures that beef themselves. Knowing you, I think you'll have more fun spreading effects (first strike, lifelink, trample, flying, reach, and deathtouch are all available off the top of my head) for anyone with a single counter.
