Jesness on The Further Proliferation of Terrible Ideas

This looks awesome so far. I like the small spells, fat creatures approach.

If you have room for another colorless land, Novijen, Heart of Progress makes an alright secondary Gavony Township. Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker are also colorless and don't trigger your commander, but they're just freakin' sweet if you can proliferate them... maybe with a Fuel for the Cause.

Sage of Fables, Zameck Guildmage, or Novijen Sages might be worth it if you need more funky card draw, and Spike Weaver might be good if you are slower and need a fog effect.

On the other hand, if you wanna go fast, I think a great finisher could be Champion of Lambholt. Retribution of the Ancients is also an amazing way to pick off creatures for one mana.

Finally, some of my favorite janky build-around cards of all time, the counter enablers - Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, Ivorytusk Fortress, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Tuskguard Captain, Bramblewood Paragon, etc. These won't make your deck better, but maybe more fun. Big, fun, fat, lifelinky, flying, deathtouchy, tramply 10/10s.

You pretty much already nailed it though. Good stuff as always.

Ivorytusk Fortress is a solid addition if you give some cute tap abilities in the deck. An example would be Rhys the Redeemed to make a stupid number of tokens if you have Cryptolith Rite

If you're going to have a lot of activated creature abilities, then running Brave the Sands and Ivorytusk Fortress might be worth it. But it doesn't appear that's the case. So no.

Apparently, I didn't go through your deck list as thoroughly as I thought I did, since I listed some items you've already selected. If you get your hands on one, I would run Contagion Clasp in addition to Contagion Engine. More counters is more counters.

I was actually trying to put together an Atraxa deck with this exact gimmick. And then I found this deck, and you've already done a lot of the heavy lifting! Hooray for me! For realz, you've got some really great selections in here, and I look forward to seeing how you develop it. I think it's going to be pretty beastly.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've been constantly trying to get new input on this deck. I am definitely going to add Contagion Clasp when I can get ahold of one, but I plan to keep the engine as well for that double proliferate. Also Corpsejack Menace is already in the deck. I have Ivorytusk Fortress in my sideboard I took out because of Brave the Sands Should I run both?

Off the top of my head, some additions worth considering:

Glissa, the Traitor (~$2) Kill one of their creatures, bring back Hangarback Walker

Ivorytusk Fortress (<$1) Untap all your dudes during all untap phases, not just yours. And since creature abilities are instants unless stated otherwise...

Corpsejack Menace (<$1) Doubles all your Proliferate effects for +1/+1 counters, stacks with Panharmonicon's effect, so when Master Biomancer is out, your tokens come out with 4 +1/+1 counters on them. And if you have Doubling Season...

Mer-Ek Nightblade (<$1) Deathtouch for those whacky tokens! Remember Glissa, the Traitor?

Contagion Clasp (<$1) Another, cheaper, Contagion Engine
