Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Discussion

If you want insane in a +1+1 counters build in Atraxa's colors, consider Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your Commanders. They have a LOT of pluses over Atraxa in a +1+1 counters build... she's better for Infect and Superfriends.
Most importantly, Reyhan's ability to save counters makes the deck a LOT more resilient and opens up several amazing combos.
They're much easier on early mana.
They draw a LOT less hate from your opponents.
Atraxa still goes in the deck.

Consider switching to Reyhan, Last of the Abzan w/ Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your commanders. They draw a lot less hate than Atraxa, they're easier on early mana, they're much more explosive with +1+1 counters, and Reyhan's ability to save counters makes the deck more resilient and opens up a lot of really good combos.
Atraxa is better for harder to get counters like loyalty/poison/charge counters but a single free proliferate per turn is really slow for +1+1 counters.

They have far better synergy with +1/+1 counters then Atraxa will ever have.

Suggestions: Put in: Ghave, Guru of Spores , Experiment Kraj , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Cultivate , Paradise Druid , Roalesk, Apex Hybrid , Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker , Zegana, Utopian Speaker , Voracious Hydra , Gyre Sage , Corpsejack Menace , Tuskguard Captain , Fertilid , Winding Constrictor . Take out: Oath of Teferi , Oath of Nissa , gags Teferi, Time Raveler (ugh), Primevals' Glorious Rebirth , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Swamp x2 and Plains x3 You should lean on green a lot because it has the most good counters stuff and will give you that sweet sweet mana. Creatures are the best theme in the deck because your commander is in fact a creature. Planeswalkers should just be seperate. Gj on your first deck.

Seriously though, Tribals will def help a newer player get into the game and actually help them subconsciously pay attention to Creature Sub-types. An easy one to work with: U/W Birds with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker . So much potential and power, yet, pretty straight forward and I have had a lot of success with it and it is very cheap to build.
If you are dead set on not Tribal, then I would suggest a Green/X (X can be any other color) type build. Get them understanding the concept of ramp and something that is semi-consistent. Green will do that for them and allow them to slowly branch out. If you want a fun budget build, try Simic (G/U) with Tatyova, Benthic Druid . And build it around the General. Ramp into lands, draw cards, and play big dudes. The consistent card draw allows to continuously refuel the board if they keep "nuking" the board. And in Simic, there are a lot of "hexproof" and "shroud" creatures that you can throw in there to just give him an edge against spot removal. You could make it a theme of "hexproof" and "shroud" with Tatyova as the general and call it, "Can't touch this..."

i think you have a nice counters theme going on but id get rid of cards like Forgotten Ancient , Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker for cards like Mikaeus, the Lunarch . and then maybe Fathom Mage for Kiora, the Crashing Wave . its more efficient and since you have a lot of strong creatures on the board, running a few utility planewalkers wouldnt hurt since its very easy for you to protect them. pws like Tamiyo, Field Researcher (instead of lets say, as foretold) or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are a must in any atraxa deck regardless of their core strategy. its just too easy to ultimate with them in multiple ways.
other then that id say this deck is great and it has a nice theme going on. you could just make a few more efficient tweaks imo.

If this appeals to you here are links to the Top 3 Reyhan and Ishai +1/+1 counter decks.

This is the first time I've seen Reyhan paired with someone other than Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker .
Blade of Selves is pretty nifty tech to abuse the legendary rule with Reyhan. In a 4 player game, 2 Reyhans are created which are sacrificed to the Legendary rule. Those 6 counters are seen and replaced by all 3 Reyhan for 18x +1+1 counters. This is a commander damage kill as early as turn 3. T1 Sol Ring into Blade, T2 Reyhan, T3 Equip, swing, and murder someone with commander damage.
