What about adding something like Corrosive Mentor, Grim Affliction, or Contagion Clasp?

Adding equipment that lets your creatures do damage will allow your deathtouching snake tokens to tap to destroy your opponents creatures.

Cards like Viridian Longbow, Wolfhunter's Quiver and Thornbite Staff (Pathway Arrows and Hankyu work too, but aren't as good).

I would also suggest Grim Affliction, Fevered Convulsions, Skullclamp, Cinderhaze Wretch, Necroskitter, Wickerbough Elder, and Seshiro the Anointed.

About your ramp: Farseek, Rampant Growth and Fellwar Stone are better than Obelisk of Bant and Obelisk of Esper, because they enable a turn 3 Atraxa if you drop them at turn 2. I would recommend cutting these cards to put the lands I suggested before: Festercreep, Bitter Ordeal, Retribution of the Ancients, Grim Affliction, Pistus Strike. You may consider Swords to Plowshares, Utter End. You can also check my Atraxa decklist. I organize it by role (draw, ramp, removal, win condition, etc) so I can figure out what I have and what I need. Have fun!

@ PauperPower Hmmmm, Grim Affliction looks a bit costly a 3 mana instant that drops one -1/-1. My commander and other permanents have the effect for as much of the cost or even cheaper. The profilate is nice but I don't really care much if creatures succumb due overwhelming -1/-1 counters. The main use for stuffing -1/-1 counters on creatures is to generate draw with The Scorpion God

No problem! Sorry about that. Yeah the engine needs a reprint to bring that price down in my opinion. Yeah the arrows could be a great budget replacement for Contagion Engine. I know there was an instant or sorcery from Ahmonket the gave -1/-1 counters, but I can't for the life of me remember it.

Just thought of a different one.... Grim Affliction!

I'd say try out a -1/-1 counter build then. You want to make sure your CMC isnt too high and with Lili being at 7 already you should get some creatures with lower cmc.

Fume Spitter, Necropede, Banewhip Punisher, Grim Affliction, Contagion Clasp, Nest of Scarabs are all super budget cards within theme but most aren't standard legal.

Oh almost forgot Tragic Slip what a hilarious card.

I agree persist isn’t good with hapatra. Also note that Grim Affliction is just a strictly better Splendid Agony so if you want to run one over the other, go with affliction. Their floors are the same but affliction’s ceiling is massive.

Ive added Razaketh, the Foulblooded to my list, highly recommended, he’s so strong with our tokens.

Also can’t wait to get a cradle for this deck. Will be fire!
