shub Thanks man, I did quite like the look of Omen Machine, but I see where you're coming from entirely. Grim Affliction works well with the energy counters and +1/+1 subthemes (Fabrication Module) in the deck; it's weaker than Tragic Slip and Doom Blade as removal, but I don't play it for the removal to be honest. On Safe Haven I had never seen it before, that looks wonderful, if only for a few etb effects in the deck, but so worth it for those steps forwards.

I think Omen Machine works against both Venser's Journal and Midnight Oil, so you might consider cutting it. I'm not sure what Grim Affliction is going help with: surely there's better instant speed removal in black that you can get on a budget (Tragic Slip, Doom Blade)? Safe Haven is a land you could consider which gives you another option to flicker Gonti.

Neotrup on Can counters cancel?

Also, because the counter cancel out only when state based actions are checked, if you target a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it with Grim Affliction it will have both types of counters on it when you proliferate so you can choose either. Once it resolves, it will just have one type, if any, though.

Delta-117 on Counters That Stay

What I'm thinking of doing for my own Atraxa deck is using lots of -1/-1 counter stuff in addition to all the other forms of counters with cards like Necroskitter, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Demon of Dark Schemes, Grim Affliction, Black Sun's Zenith, Languish, Contagion Engine and Contagion Clasp. I will have tutors and what not to find Necroskitter, and your deck has given me the idea to use Confiscation Coup, Aetherworks Marvel and Demon of Dark Schemes which I have to thank you for that.

It's not going to be infect but it's going to use these -1 counters for killing and stealing cards. I had a Vorel of the Hull Clade deck previously and so I'm going to be taking that apart today to put a lot of its cards into the Atraxa breed lethality deck which I'm buying also today. It looks like it's going to be a great deck.
