When Ichor Wellspring enters the battlefield or is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, draw a card.
Ichor Wellspring Discussion

Atla seems very weak. The ability to combo with the Stalactite and Altar is like any 3-card combo with one piece being a commander. Unless the combo pieces tutor for each other, are able to all be tutored by a separate card, or the commander can tutor for at least one of the pieces, or the combo is 1-3 mana entirely, the combo isn't reasonably viable on a general basis.
Elsha seems... kind of bad? It is a combo enabler with Top, and Flash, no reveal, only noncreature Future Sight seems okay, but a 5 mana creature variant that any Swords to Plowshares or counterspell can deal with seems weak. Maybe with enough protection, such as Silence type effects, the deck can just be a combo deck with Elsha as a piece, but as a Storm Engine, I doubt it will be able to reliably go off without too little protection. Maybe a midrange combo deck in the realms of tier 2-3.
Anje Falkenrath can cycle through all madness cards for free really fast. I am sure there are some ways to abuse this. I don't know any off of the top of my head, but a Razaketh, the Foulblooded reanimator plan seems reasonable. Just run normal b/r tutors, a few reanimation spells, rakazeth, the combo you plan to use him with, and then lands and fill the rest with madness enablers and fast mana, I'd imagine you could do well with it, not entirely sure. Maybe there is a doomsday line as well, like another Grenzo.
Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero is apparently a good eggs commander, but I haven't seem any list. Ichor Wellspring , Krark-Clan Ironworks , etc do seem to have the proper synergies for a sweet list though.
Chainer, Nightmare Adept seems possibly decent. Buried Alive for Zealous Conscripts , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Phyrexian Delver might be a thing, but I am not sure how much I am a fan of that. It may just be a decent value engine like Elsha.
Pramikon, Sky Rampart is a reasonable include into some decks to fight Tymna the Weaver , kind of a Silent Arbiter effect, able to deal well with some blood pod decks in the meta, but isn't really a commander for cEDH, unless if Spark Double , Sakashima the Impostor , or Helm of the Host for no attacks at all seems useful.
I may go over the other cards more indepth, like the legendaries, but for now:
Cliffside Rescuer , Backdraft Hellkite , Mandate of Peace , Road of Return , Sudden Substitution , Sanctum of Eternity , Leadership Vacuum , Sevinne's Reclamation , Selesnya Eulogist , Mire in Misery, Selesnya Eulogist , and Bone Miser seem posssible, but Dockside Extortionist is the best of them by far.

UPDATE, Ichor Wellspring is back in and Swiftfoot Boots are out, 4 Sylvan Scrying , 4 Blast Zone , 4 Forest have been put in to pick the Scuttling Doom Engine and Retributive Wand as the win con. Mystic Forge is out Mirrorworks and Pierce Strider is out for them to be put into a version of "urza's ETB"

@ Tanukiboi I'm rethinking my approach to Urza with the PE ban and I'd already started some preliminary testing on a more storm oriented variant, so my list is firmly in the "work in progress" stage. Especially since almost 100 games of playtesting is out the window with the PE ban. That being said, I don't necessarily think Urza is a deck that one absolutely has to shell out multiple thousands of dollars to turn into something moderately competitive. There's no real need for things like Candelabra in it as those types of lines are usually already back up lines and High Tide isn't the most effective way to generate lots of mana with Urza (he just needs any random artifacts). It's totally possible to run a bunch of janky cards (like Ichor Wellspring ) that actually help Urza do it's thing using lines with Rebuild , Retract and the like. Even a budgeted, tuned down list with a well crafted gameplan and efficient synergistic card choices is going to be fairly potent. I will say that with PE out of the picture for no budget lists the Mystic Forge or Future Sight combo with Sensei's Divining Top is very likely to be the best option for a backup primary game plan to go along side Dramatic/Scepter combo.

I also made a Traxos deck and it's one of my favorite decks to play! You can find it on my page if you want some ideas.
Some cards that I would recommend are
Meekstone is fun, but might piss some people off.
Piston Sledge is always fun
Phyrexia's Core is a decent sac outlet when you need it
All Is Dust is always a one-sided boardwipe with this deck.
Hope this helps!

Great deck! May I suggest the following:
- More protection by adding a handful of counterspells
- Add more cards that tutor for artifacts
- Remove the Eldrazi (You do not need them. At all.)
- How about the KCI combo? Myr Retriever + Scrap Trawler + Ichor Wellspring + Krark-Clan Ironworks to draw cards until you get your pieces (and generate infinite mana in the process). Then replace the Wellspring for Myr Battlesphere to create infinite tokens.

Nice deck! I also have a Traxos deck that I've had a lot of fun playing.
Some cards I would suggest are Meekstone . It's very powerful, and there is nothing funnier than casting Meekstone and untapping your own Traxos haha.
Infiltration Lens for the card draw.
Crucible of Worlds is good with your sac-lands.
