Thanks rachid, I definitely respect Doubling Season, however the mana cost and the lack of counters being placed or Planeswalkers, doesn't actually allow it to preform to the best of its ability here. Would definitely be more considerable of I was running Gavony Township and/or Cathars' Crusade . However potent Tokens AND counters can be, it becomes tiresome to manage and simply unfun.
Thanks for the other two suggestions though! Own them both and being that I play Esper there will always be a chance for him to get extra value out of Voice of Resurgence .

META CHANGE / DECK CHANGE
Update at 11/2019
1 month ago
The newest debate that I am considering for my Atraxa EDH deck is whether or not I should replace Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver . The skydiver has a lower converted mana cost and can also immediately make itself or another creature more powerful, but its proliferate ability requires a significant investment of mana, which is the main focus of my deliberation.
On one hand, the informant’s ability requires no mana, but triggers only during combat, whereas, on the other hand, the skydiver’s ability can be used at any time, but requires mana to use. Also, each of those creatures has redundancy with other cards in my deck; the informant has redundancy with Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , Sword of Truth and Justice , Kalonian Hydra , and Archangel of Thune in that each of those cards has a triggered ability that places counters on creatures. If I were to put the skydiver in the deck, it would have redundancy with Viral Drake , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Karn's Bastion , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , and Gavony Township in that each of those cards has an activated ability that places counters on creatures.
Actually, I could alternatively replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver , because, as nice as the falconer is, it does not really contribute to the overall theme of the deck and having another source of proliferation is better than giving all of my creatures flying, especially since a large number of creatures in this deck already have flying, and I have two other cards in this deck that can grant all of my creatures flying. What does everyone say about that?

DragonSliver09, I posted a link to the deck in the opening post of this thread.
bushido_man96, I actually have not used the deck sufficiently frequently to be able to provide detailed information about how it usually functions, but I shall say that I usually do very well with it; I do not win every game with it, but I rarely am in last place in any games with more than two players.
Also, I have multiple redundant cards in that deck: as I already mentioned, Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , and Guildpact Informant are redundant, but that group also includes Archangel of Thune and Sword of Truth and Justice in that they all have triggered abilities that put counters on my creatures. Viral Drake has redundancy with Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Mikaeus, the Lunarch , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , and Gavony Township in that all of those cards have activated abilities that place counters on my creatures, so replacing, for example, Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver would be reducing the number of redundant cards in one group and increasing the number of redundant cards in the other group, which could probably be a thread of its own.

A card that goes well with a token/go wide strat is Glare of Subdual to help defend or punch through as needed.
Kjeldoran Outpost and/or Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree gives you a couple more options to generate token creatures. Cathars' Crusade and Gavony Township are there to make all of those tokens real threats.

As a disclaimer, some of these are not perfect 1:1 replacements. Essentially, any card on the remove side can be swapped for any card in the replace side. Remove-Replace Blind Obedience - Kismet : Slowing down your opponent's lands is huge and will make you "faster" in comparison
Huatli's Raptor - Mikaeus, the Lunarch : HR is low cost, which implies it will come out early, but it really works best midgame. Mikaes scales to any point in the game and can proliferate faster with all your "untap creatures" effects.
Inexorable Tide - Unbreakable Formation : IT is flashy, but slow to build up. UF is cheap, can save your creatures from a wipe, and if cast during your main phase, basically gives you a free combat round with no consequences.
Caustic Caterpillar - Black Sun's Zenith : You have tons of artifact/enchantment removal and without graveyard recursion, CC is just too small. BSZ can be cast for X=1 and then can be proliferated. Plus it recurs itself.
A few cards I found that would work great in this deck, but had no easy replacements: Gleam of Authority , Together Forever , Orochi Hatchery , Citadel Siege , and (I know you used to have it here) Vorel of the Hull Clade

I don't think you'd want to waste deck slots with proliferation type effects - I would have thought an 8/8 should either be the biggest thing on the board, or you're in the possition where you're already boned so it doesn't matter.
Personally I would build the deck as white/green, using a bunch of dorks and then have stuff like Kitchen Finks , with the list topping out at a few gearhulks. If you leverage dorks, then you can either dump a bunch of counters across all of them (if you're concerned about single target removal) or you can drop an 8/8 with trample quickly and then turn sideways with it.
Going creature heavy means you can lean on cards like Lead the Stampede for digging power. It also means that if you do want to dump more counters on your stuff, then you have access to Gavony Township which is going to do more work by itself than a proliferate effect.
Stick a couple of Path to Exile s in the list and you've got something that kind of works.
