You want to first consider the synergy that you want to build. If your going with ramping hard and abusing your walkers, go for the proliferation theme. Some cards that will help you out in this aspect are cards like Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Doubling Season, Inexorable Tide, Deepglow Skate, Contagion Engine.

If you want to go ahead and bash people's head in with Atraxa, consider some cards that gives it +1/+1 or protection. Cards that can help Atraxa out this way are cards like Master Biomancer, Forgotten Ancient, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, or Plaxcaster Frogling.

Hope that helps!

Always cool to see a creaturebased Atraxa deck!

Stuff like Hangarback Walker, Hooded Hydra or Chasm Skulker is pretty nice because it gives you some protection from boardwipes.

Walking Ballista is just a reasonable creature on it's own, can serve as spot removal or ouright kill people when paired with Kalonian Hydra or Deepglow Skate.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is another nice non-combat wincon, especially when paired with things like Reyhan, Last of the Abzan.

Altered Ego is a nice manasink, and with so many creatures with effects on them can do insane stuff. Or you just copy something fun from your opponents.

If you want to commit to the infect plan, both Ichor Rats and Viral Drake are reasonable creatures.

As for euqipment, Helm of the Host is manahungry, but works well both with Atraxa and with other creatures with big bodies and/or strong effects.

I might be completely missing something, but with no cards with devoid in your list I'd probably replace Corrupted Crossroads, even with a basic.

So, Deepglow Skate is on my short list, just haven’t found a copy yet. Same with Leyline of Anticipation, and I’m reluctant to pay $20 for a card that’s a slight upgrade to Vedalken Orrery. Doubling Season I want to add, but is expensive, and also, by the time I’m playing it, I probably want to be generating enough counters per Ezuri trigger to knock someone out anyway. Thank you for the input though! Hopefully you’ll see deepglow skate on this list soon!

Leyline of Anticipation maybe instead of Vedalken Orrery :) What about Doubling Season ? Some people find it is as bad turn 5. Dunno... I like Deepglow Skate too.

Whatever, sweet deck, sweet build !

It's a fun idea, and if you have flex spots you can try it out. It does work with Deepglow Skate because it is a trigger ability so it does double twice. It's also funny that it can trigger Contagion Engine ETB effect twice LOL!

Pulled Expedition Flooded Grove, Strip Mine, and also Wasteland from my BFZ boxes. Most memorable pull was getting that Foil Cavern of Souls from a single Avacyn Restored Pack!
