Ichor Rats Discussion
1 week ago
With your bounce theme you may want to consider some ETB effects like:
Rune-Scarred Demon or Torgaar, Famine Incarnate or Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Maybe one or two graveyard hate cards, such as Bojuka Bog or Agent of Erebos.
Or possibly other good ETB's such as Big Game Hunter or just to be funny Ichor Rats

PhyrexianWombat thank you for the incredibly kind words. Ichor Rats gives all players a poison counter when it enters the battlefield so having protection from everything doesn’t matter because you aren’t targeted and obviously your life total isn’t changing. If they have a way to proliferate those counters then (which they should since they’re playing infect), they can poison you to death.

Crypt Ghast would give you some ramp
Hollowborn Barghest isn't a rat, but the ability is quite good with your game plan.
Rackling same with this guy, another Rack but tied to a non-rat creature
Phyrexian Reclamation can let you re-play annoying creatures once people remove them, as well as provide draw for when you're top decking
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a super solid black finisher and can keep you in the game a lot longer
Geier Reach Sanitarium gives you a discard trigger for everyone, and draws everyone another card which you can make them discard again
Attrition lets you use those rat tokens for repeatable removal
These are the cards that are probably under performing in your deck: Bone Splinters, Coercion, Death Stroke, Duress, Kaervek's Hex, Ostracize, Waking Nightmare, Ichor Rats, Typhoid Rats, Simulacrum, Subversion, Ordeal of Erebos,

Yeah, the crux of the problem is that Stuffy Doll on its own demands 2 or 3 additional effects to achieve an even average effectiveness. Those effects demand card slots, and offer very little synergy with other cards. At the end of the day you've committed 10 slots to facilitate making a card you might not even see average.
Of course you can just build Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect and throw in Muldrotha, the Gravetide. I don't think it's as effective as just straight budget Muldrotha card value beatdown, but it's relatively viable.
Atraxa doesn't have infect, so I'd build toward getting that first counter on and getting as many proliferate triggers as possible. DrukenReaps mentioned Ichor Rats, which is so essential to this game plan it's basically your lieutenant. Pick up anything with infect and evasion, anything that gives you an effect with a proliferation, and take advantage of things you can proliferate yourself. The vivid lands, Fathom Mage, Gyre Sage, Astral Cornucopia, Everflowing Chalice, and Pentad Prism all come to mind from my own counter counter deck building experience, but I'm sure there are others outside of .
Muldotha will just be a good card in the deck. Use her to rebuild your board or reuse dead ETBs whenever possible, but don't build expecting to have her in any given game.

I have to agree with FancyTuesday on pretty much all points. I think you can do an infect deck with atraxa just fine but I have to admit Stuffy Doll even in my The Druken Enraged is a mediocre card. Fun and tough for that one person to deal with but even with the deck made to take advantage of those kinds of effects he is mediocre.
Still you can certainly make a good infect deck using more normal infect cards like Ichor Rats. And muldrotha is just a nice card to include so you can bring things back when you are low on fuel, though you won't be able to count on muldrotha since it is lost in the 99.

I don't think Cataclysm is a good card for you, it looks like you like to hoard permanents in the field, and Cataclysm is no good for that. Another thing, you have few pieces to combo well with Stasis you do have Root Maze but Kismet (or Frozen AEther) or Orb of Dreams can help you finnish the combo.
Eventhough Mana Vault is a great card I dont feel like is necesary, but it's an artifact based stax so I get it. I wouldnt play Ichor Rats it's way too slow even for a stax deck.If you wanna check my deck here it is: Max Stax Atraxa
Also, I like to play Armageddon and Heroic Intervention, It has won me a lot of games. And since you're running Armageddon and Ravages of War you double the chances to get the combo. Also Heroic Intervention is a great counter for all the boardwipes or targeted disruption in commander.
See ya man! =)

And will you view my infect deck? It's Atraxa led, but there are only a dozen cards outside the Golgari colours.
