Hardened Scales, Forgotten Ancient, Deepglow Skate, and Managorger Hydra are your friends. Also, you can't run Primordial Ooze, since it's red.

Okay, from what you told me I think I have some good suggestions for you.

What you'll want to try to find is cards with the proliferate mechanic for a counter-based deck. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a really good new one. One of the best is Contagion Engine, since it proliferates twice, and Contagion Clasp works as a mini-engine. Some that I included in my Atraxa deck are Steady Progress, Inexorable Tide, Thrummingbird, Viral Drake, and Tezzeret's Gambit. In case you didn't know, Loyalty counters on planeswalkers count for proliferate, so every time you proliferate you can add a counter to each planeswalker you coutnrol.

Also, for Super Friends Planeswalker decks, all of the Oaths can be very useful. In particular for your commander deck, I would consider Oath of Chandra, Oath of Gideon, Oath of Nissa, and Oath of Ajani, although Jace and Liliana's can be useful, too.

The best counter deck card is Doubling Season, but if you don't have the extra lung to sell to buy that card, Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, and potentially Primal Vigor are good, too. I also recommend Deepglow Skate.

Other than that, any of the Abzan cards that give abilities to creatures with +1/+1 counters like Tuskguard Captain, Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Mer-Ek Nightblade will all be very useful.

I apologize in advance for all of what I am about to write...

I think life gain/pillowfort can be your win con in this deck. Similar to mine, it's all about keeping yourself protected until you can actually get your combo pieces/finishers.

I would actually recommend you keep Essence Warden over Celestial Force/Ajani's Mantra. You're right, it is less reliable, but it has a much higher ceiling. An average deck would still give you quite a bit of life off of her, let alone if you manage to play against a token deck. Essence Warden, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, and maaaybe Suture Priest.

I would also recommend Propaganda and, possibly, Norn's Annex to your pillow fort list.

I wouldn't recommend many mana rocks, in my opinion. Since you are in green, you have access to a ton of mana ramp. Courser of Kruphix and Oracle of Mul Daya being two fantastic choices. Then, of course, you have your mana dorks like Llanowar Elves and Birds of Paradise.

You are thinking about putting in Energy Field as well, and if you do, I would recommend Rest in Peace. This combo lets you never take damage from opponents.

Lastly, another little combo that you have one piece of is the Ajani, Mentor of Heroes combo. Put in Doubling Season (I know it is on the pricey side...) and Deepglow Skate, the cast Ajani to be able to hit his ultimate as soon as you cast him. 100 life on turn 5 is pretty good, haha. That little combo could also do some work with Aetherflux Reservoir as another possible win con.

Again, I'm sorry for this huge long thing! I just hope I said something that is helpful for you! (:

TheDragonking564 on Atraxa Deck Help!!

enpc definitely. though I actually have had the Myojins work fairly well. While the deck may be aggro, a number of decks I face off against on a regular basis do a very good job of slowing the game down, so having the Myojins, each of whom have quite a strong effect, for if the game goes on longer then I want it to, then I at least won't get caught out. As it is, using Deadeye Navigator and Deepglow Skate, I can produce infintitely powerful creatures, and if Gyre Sage is out, produce infinite mana, so there is another wincon that I hadn't actually originally thought of until earlier today (also possibly decking myself if Fathom Mage is out).

Deepglow Skate is also a fantastic Atraxa card.

It depends on how many show up the given day we play, but it mostly varies with 4-6 players :)

I have not bought the Atraxa starter deck, but i might do that :) But i prefer the deck building like the other ones in my playgroup, so we will just proxy a lot of cards :) And yeah i already added Deepglow Skate in my prototype build :)

And Gideon is a very good option, will most likely include him :)

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be a good option for the tokens theme. I would wait until it rotates from standard to drop in price a little bit. How big is your play group? If you have a lot of people to worry about Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Sphere of Safety would be helpful to include. They last option is one of the best because it is the only one that protects your planeswalkers. With the other two people can still attack your PW.

If you have not done so already, I would deck search commander decks that have Atraxa at the helm. Each deck will be different, but you will start to see reoccurring cards each deck includes that are "must haves."

Did you buy Atraxa's starter deck already, or are you just going to buy the cards you need? If you are going to play some creatures in the deck then Deepglow Skate is a powerful card for the deck.
