Echoes of the Kin Tree Discussion

If you do want to keep your current color fixing, try adding Hardened Scales as it is a budget vrsion of Doubling Season. Though a bit pricey, you can look at Archangel of Thune so that it can combo with Spike Feeder. Spells with the bolster mechanic are prevalent throughout the Tarkir series, so look for those like Honor's Reward, Echoes of the Kin Tree, or even creatures like Sandsteppe Mastodon.

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?

I myself have never built a complete Atraxa deck, so I do not have much experience with her as a commander. I will try my best, however.
Illusionist's Bracers also works well with Vorel. You already had Resonator and Brighthearth in there, so I couldn't suggest those.
Gilder Bairn also works sort of like Vorel.
Ezuri, Claw of Progress I guess works as well.
Ajani, Mentor of Heroes gives +1/+1 counters, and his ulti is nice as well.
An Atraxa deck I am working on is centered not really around +1/+1 counters but more around putting counters on things like Darksteel Reactor, Lux Cannon, Grindclock, etc. If you want to try something new, knock yourself out.
For the moment, that's all I really have to say. Good luck with the deck, and may topdeck be ever in your favor.

You probably already know the infinite synergy if you have two Enduring Scalelords on the field...

I also know you don't want to go Samurai tribal but Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho is really quite good here

A card option to consider would be Feat of Resistance. This card helps distribute a counter and has a lot of utility for 2 mana.
Another option would be the equipment Whispersilk Cloak as it protects your creature from target functions and also allows you to swing in unblocked.
I am not a fan of Echoes of the Kin Tree because it is a very slow card that you can't really control easily. Would suggest removing for better utility cards.
Hope the suggestions helped. Like the deck idea and wish you luck.

Weathered Wayfarer can be a better option than Knight of the White Orchid, but not budget. Defiant Strike and Guided Strike can replace Honor's Reward and Echoes of the Kin Tree, reducing the average CMC and giving you card advantage.

That is very true, but I'm not quite sure what to drop in its place. Maybe the Longshot Squad and Incremental Growth as well as another card or two so I can get it more likely. I've really been meaning to replace the 2 Echoes of the Kin Tree with 2 Citadel Siege because Echoes of the Kin Tree just isn't that good in this.
