HaunterHunter on This Deck Atraxa Lot of Hate

Plaxcaster Frogling? shroud for two mana?

Gyre Sage? for manas

Bloodspore Thrinax for the same thing as master biomancer

Fuel for the Cause, Steady Progress, Contagion Engine, Contagion Clasp, Viral Drake, Spread the Sickness, Grim Affliction. These are all proliferate cards, some are draw power, some removal, a counterspell and one infect. Proliferation is usually good in a proliferation deck. xD

Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Bident of Thassa over Bred for the Hunt all creatures versus only +1/+1 creatures.

Novijen, Heart of Progress gives free counters to creatures that came in this turn

Rogue's Passage, Reliquary Tower, and Command Tower are a EDH Staple

Strionic Resonator!!! Copy Atraxa's ability and get an extra round of proliferation for 2 mana! Amazing card, especially in EDH.

Also, Grim Affliction would go well for extra proliferate. It's already on your maybeboard but I like it.

Learn from the Past Kind of really narrow but devastating to certain decks/matchups we may see. Also if we arent against a big graveyard based threat, it in essence has built in 1U Cycling since it cantrips. Except that counts as a cast and grows the +1/+1s. It answers something that is powerful when abused and it's ENTIRELEY worthless outside those matchups. Grim Affliction I'd argue this is an autoinclude for sure. For obvious reasons I think. Trail of Evidence not sure if this would end up worthwhile or just choke a card slot but looked interesting. Viral Drake Gives us some air blocker meat and a way for you to dump mana at their end step if you have some left and help us grow. Howling Mine was also on my list. We want spells cast we just want to them mitigate them so we are going to need the fuel/card draw to make sure we have the RIGHT answers. Baleful Strix is pure value in most any deck. Cantrips and 1 time deadly air defense. Ghost Quarter, Encroaching Wastes, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Wasteland - a couple to take care of possible show stoppers like Maze of Ith against us would be nice. Not to mention all the other utility lands people run we might want gone. I have too many slots dedicated to fixing so i cant run many of these colorless only sources. (though I did still slot a Wasteland). There's a ton of land destruction at sorcery in black, but i dont want to clog too many slots with something other than removal or it's going to get inconsistent fast. Befoul is probably on point for the versatility of it. I dream of Helldozer lmao but probably not...

I see you have Stromkirk Captain, but would there be any room/purpose for a Stensia Masquerade or two? Just a thought. In my vampire deck I have 2x of those and 4x Grim Affliction, but I'm not sure those really fit this deck.Great deck though! +1.

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.
