@TrillMill I still play the deck, but I've found that if you can't keep atraxa out the deck struggles. As Foretold will help you keep her out. Cloning abilities are important since most horrors are nonlegends and because people will be playing stronger creatures in the late game.

If you intend to use counters as part of your strategy then make sure you have ways to protect your horrors, such as Asceticism, Golgari Charm, etc.

I have found that the utility horrors such as the lieges, Spellskite, Thing in the Ice  Flip and even Metallic Mimic always are large factors in how well I do in a game. If you can copy the lieges, then Atraxa almost turns into a voltron commander. Anyway good luck brewing and feel free to leave a link to your list for me to take a look at.

I appreciate your suggestions. Coat of Arms is in the list. You must've just missed it. I'm not sold on Coralhelm Commander. The input required to get him to lord status is substantial. Flying is appreciated, but plenty of islandwalk in the list makes it underwhelming. Cryptoplasm is interesting, as not getting a lord ability or the like right when you play him is a sure miss, but it's also very versatile. I could see an argument for it. Clever Impersonator is awesome; must've just forgot. And Adaptive Automaton would just be the weakest lord in a deck very saturated with them, but I'm starting to think it would be better than Metallic Mimic, which is terrible late game.

Those are my thoughts regarding your suggestions. Do you have any recommendations for cuts?

I think you could cut down 2 Cultivates and replace them with 2 Metallic Mimic. With Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Song of Freyalise, Llanowar Elves, and 22 lands, you probably don't need as many lands as you're thinking.

Do you agree? I can do some playtesting to see if this replacement will work or not, just ask me if you want me to.

magicsheep thanks! Metallic Mimic would be a nice Addition and Coat of Arms for sure aswell but my Problem with Coat of Arms is that it buffes everyones creatures and in my opinion Door of Destinies and Eldrazi Monument are better options. What would you switch for metallic mimic?

Metallic Mimic and Coat of Arms are good tribal cards that would make fun interactions.
Great deck Rekram! Definitely worth +1 upvote

Fatal Push could probably be a good removal spell. Metallic Mimic allows all of your Saprolings to enter with counters, helping you overrun your opponent. Duress is probably a good supplement on the sideboard.

Very creative deck, excellent theme and beautiful execution!

Thank you for the suggestions StopShot!

Cloudstone Curio is terrifying I agree with you it's a must add! Dark Tutelage is nice, I always seem to forget about it but it's great for a deck like this.

The changelings I think would make for solid replacements for creatures like Metallic Mimic. They up the curve a slight amount but their potential impact is worth it imo.
