cloudsol on Wincons with Atraxa

2 weeks ago

I want to secure win conditions for cards like Azor's Elocutors / Darksteel Reactor / Helix Pinnacle; all under Atraxa, Praetors' Voice command. I know of ways to double counters, and of course proliferate. But if opponents are running stax, combo, or spot removal/counter, what can I do to help get these wincons off?

I haven't bought these wincons yet, so I'm open to whatever right now.

I'm running Atraxa: Budget Tokens/Counters/Infect, but it's slow and has no wincons other than overwhelming with +1/+1 counters or infect.

Ya I saw that it got added to the ban list, I just haven't updated it yet. The win condition is Near-Death Experience and Worship or Darksteel Reactor. But it could use more

Cool deck.

There are a couple of cool cards you could add, depending on what type of things you want the deck to do.

Ezuri, Claw of Progress can be really good in a creature heavy Atraxa deck like this, as you can proliferate the experience counters. If you add Sage of Hours you can get an infinite turns combo. Azor's Elocutors can also be an additional wincon.

Vedalken Infuser and Energy Chamber are good free proliferate engines, and can work really well with cards like Magistrate's Scepter and Darksteel Reactor.

If you would prefer non-combo wincons, Call for Unity can be pretty good.

Why not go the janky route and get every counter-based wincon out there, mixed with planeswalker chaos? Your opponents won't know where to try to put out fires! Maximum proliferation!

Helix Pinnacle

Darksteel Reactor

Azor's Elocutors

Celestial Convergence (keep feeding it counters until you have the highest life total)

And while at it, make sure they CAN'T win by not being able to lose!

Platinum Angel

Gideon of the Trials

And for added protection, via enchantments :

Privileged Position, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Sterling Grove, No Mercy, Enchanted Evening, Leyline of Sanctity and all other Leylines, too ...

Hope you find fun in those!

Depending on how serious or silly you want to be, Atraxa also works well for certain types of alternative win cons like Darksteel Reactor or Azor's Elocutors. Basically, anything that involves counters of some kind.

"I want to drag the game out forever. I want to be able to win whenever I want, but choose not to. I want to say "No" to everything."

If this is what you want, then perhaps you'll like my deck deck:And I'll Pay a Red | Only 5 Red Spells! PRIMER. Take a look at the "Current Best Game" section, cause that's basically what I do with it.

Essentially once you combo out, you search every artifact that could be useful in manipulating the boardstate -- from Lux Cannon to Contagion Engine to Decimator Web -- along with Darksteel Reactor, and literally just sit there and stop them from doing anything, draw-go-ing each of your turns slowly ticking up the Reactor. For added fun, sacrifice the Reactor on turn 19 so the game has no end.

You don't really need Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger because his trigger is a cast trigger, not an etb trigger. And you also don't really need Body Double, as you don't require the use of graveyards. Instead (and also this deck is super expensive), you can use Clever Impersonator to copy not just creatures but also enchantments or artifacts. Have you also thought of using Eerie Interlude; its basically another Brago proc that doesn't require an attack.

In my opinion, this deck is really just for show with all of its diverse and powerful cards; you don't really have a win con, and some of the cards don't have synergy. I would recommend revising it to find some good win cons, and a way for your cards to interact in a good way. For example, you can use your token army and etb effects to act like a pillow fort, stalling until you get to a good finisher like Storm Herd, Darksteel Reactor, or even White Sun's Zenith. Or you can use your life gaining creatures to maintain a life total and win with Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance. It is really your choice as to how to build your deck.
