Two alternate wincons you could use are Helix Pinnacle and Darksteel Reactor , though the latter is still very slow even coupled with Pir, Imaginative Rascal . Are you using Toothy, Imaginary Friend as well or keeping things mono-green?

Okay, so I wanted to make a deck, but then I went looking at the "decks we've worked on" section above, and people that charge couner Atraxa deck needs some love.

I humbly petition AwezomePozzum to allow me to make changes to the deck and/or to simply remake it with his original intent (a charge counter deck with a likely focus on Darksteel Reactor as the main win con).

I further will say that I'd like the community as a whole get in on this because there are so few Atraxa artifact decks with high ratings that I think the archetype needs more attention overall.

Darksteel Reactor could be a fun hard-mode/backup win condition.

You might also want to make use of Mage-Ring Network and Blast Zone and Magosi, the Waterveil

You could also make use of Increasing Savagery and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter and Gyre Sage and Thrummingbird and Contagion Engine

I thought about doing something like that before, with Stony Silence , Mycosynth Lattice and Ghostly Prison to stop the opponent from using the creatures they had on the battlefield, and wait them out with Darksteel Reactor because Stony Silence completely locks everyone (except, cards with Convoke can be cast, if the entire cost can be Convoked, and Simian Spirit Guide still works).

Anyway...the problem I see, is that on their turn, if they still have creatures, they will attack Karn, and I think there's a very real possibility they will break the lock if you don't have an answer to their creatures.

Funkydiscogod on Pure Control with Mogis, God ...

Yes, Mogis, God of Slaughter would be difficult to get rid of, but it has critical problems, especially if you're not using him as a creature. Consider, for example Torment of Scarabs :

  • Unlike Mogis, it is nonlegendary, so extra copies still work.
  • They lose 3 life instead of 2.
  • It is not limited to just creatures.
  • The sacrifice/discard is not optional.

That last one is the most important, because the opponent won't be able to choose to take the damage while they have cards in hand or nonland permanents on the battlefield. This is relevant because Death's Shadow and any deck that can keep a creature larger than a 2/2 on the battlefield would win the race by choosing to take damage every time.

As an enchantment, Mogis just doesn't impact the battlefield nearly enough.

And if the opponent has Young Pyromancer , or Lingering Souls or some other token generator, Mogis will take longer to kill the opponent than Darksteel Reactor .

I’m really considering Solemnity

It’s stops infect, Experience counters, cards like Darksteel Reactor and I can use it in tandem with Mystic Remora and Energy Storm to never pay for CU
