Forgotten Ancient Discussion

Forgotten Ancient, Path to Exile, Livewire Lash if you think about adding deathtouch... Deathtouch is great with double strike. With trample 1 damage per creature kills it and you get damage through, Gorgon's Head, Basilisk Collar, maybe some other equipment ideas; Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw

For cheap mana fixing (<$1):
Gift of Paradise
Pyramid of the Pantheon
Cuts I'd suggest:
Gideon's Lawkeeper for Journey to Nowhere
Manaplasm for Managorger Hydra or Forgotten Ancient
Ondu Giant for Wood Elves
Rhox War MonkSengir Vampire for Archfiend of Depravity or Desecration Demon
Serra Angel for Serra Avenger
Stormblood Berserker for Sulfuric Vortex
Circle of Flame for Mizzium Mortars
Glory of Warfare for Chromatic Lantern
Honor of the Pure for Spear of Heliod, if you really want an anthem effect.
Frost Breath for Mana Leak
Guardians' Pledge for Sakura-Tribe Elder (you really dont have enough white creatures for this effect)
Incinerate & Lightning Bolt for Terminate and Murder
Plummet for Oblivion Ring
Titanic Growth for Harmonize
War Report for Day of Judgment
Exploding Borders for Burnished Hart
Traveler's Amulet for Wayfarer's Bauble
I suggest choosing a theme for your deck. Right now it seems to be pulling in too many directions.
Want to cast and swing with Progenitus? Include cards that grant haste like Temur Ascendancy.
Want to play fun multicolored shenanigans? Include whatever value you like.
Want to use overcosted enchantment cycles? Include the Shrines.
Focusing will allow you to better determine what your deck wants. Regardless, I recommend playing heavy green to maximize your ability to mana ramp.

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 haven't playtested this, and I don't play outlast myself, but here's a decklist I just threw together based on the creatures you already have in there:
- 4x Abzan Falconer
- 4x Ainok Bond-Kin
- 2x Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- 2x Avatar of the Resolute
- 2x Forgotten Ancient
- 2x Mikaeus, the Lunarch
- 4x Consul's Lieutenant
- 2x Tuskguard Captain
- 2x Abzan Battle Priest
- 4x Collected Company
- 4x Dromoka's Command
- 4x Heroic Intervention
- 4x Hardened Scales
A lot of the creatures are already in your deck, and I've made room for up to 20 lands (four of which I suggest should be Gavony Township), in my play group we don't play with sideboards, but I really like the idea of ult'ing Ajani, Mentor of Heroes so you could put him there, but at CMC5 he is rather expensive.
Once you figure out what spells should be in the deck, we can talk about the mana base.

Your deck contains very few cards that can help you add some more counters; I'd recommend adding some more. Deepglow Skate, Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, Mycoloth, Scute Mob, Vorel of the Hull Clade and Contagion Engine are all great at that.
Here's mine; hope it helps.

There are obviously a lot of cards which would be good here. I'll try and keep them budget.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Sacrifice, a big dude in his own right and a legit win condition

Jimmy_Chinchila They did that years ago. Forgotten Ancient and Crucible of Worlds came from a contest where players submitted suggestions on what the card will be, then players vote on the most popular ones

Another thing to note is that Forgotten Ancient is not modern legal. And kahns dual lands are pretty cheap you could just go with them, guild gates are cheap too.
