Mu Yanling appears to have some nice synergy and support for the deck. Thoughts on this?
3 weeks ago
I love the Sphinxy/time synergy. It does look like fun to play for any one who is not the opponent! The threat of constantly taking new turns? Yikes. But I worry that it may be too much as I see little card draw and counter spells. If you think that no one will attempt to be rid of your spells in this deck, you are mistaken. I suggest maybe Mu Yanling for this deck. Your Sphinxes also synergise with the mind, so why not add a Flow of Ideas to this deck? I assure you it is quite good card draw. Dictate of Kruphix gives card draw, as does Divination. Brainstorm and Ponder synergise with the mind too. Dissolve, Rewind, and Unwind are worthy considerations for counterspells. Favorable Winds give your fliers extra power and toughness. Kindred Discovery works with your Sphinxes. Door of Destinies does the same.
Overall, I give this deck a 7.9/10. I hope these suggestions have been of some use to you.

Hmm LVL_666, I never thought about storage lands, that's a really good idea. I won't cut down to 33 lands though because A) through play testing I've found 36 is a nice consistent number. And B) I seriously have the worst luck with lands.
They may try to make the Planeswalkers in Planeswalker decks "unplayable" but that doesn't always work, just look at the Ajani from M19, the Planeswalker deck Planeswalker is definitely better. Tezzeret, Master of Metal is a Planeswalker deck card, and his ult is amazing (the plus is nice to since it can help me find Rings and The Chain Veil). I personally like Mu Yanling, she can make Atraxa unblockable if it has to come with that and can draw me cards (if I'm desperate). Also, that ult is like my dream ult "Tap all creatures your opponents control and take an extra turn". That tap ability is nice, but it's the extra turn I'm after (like Teferi, Timebender, another Planeswalker deck Planeswalker in this deck).
Huh, thought As Foretold was in here, I must have cut it for some stupid reason. I've been thinking about Aminatou, the Fateshifter for blink, but one Ive been thinking about putting in is Estrid, the Masked. Her minus is nice since it allows my to protect my Planeswalkers to a certain degree.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to leave more if you feel like it.

So, after looking at your landbase I have some suggestions. Since you're running Atraxa you have the unique opportunity to take advantage of Proliferate. Some lands that may be of use to you are the TimeSpiral Storage Lands, aka: Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, and Saltcrusted Steppe. Then to support your proliferation madness you could use Mage-Ring Network, Gemstone Mine (because you could just keep proliferating the counters on it, making it punishment free), and Mirrodin's Core. To make room, i'd try and cut your manabase down to around 33 lands. I would probably cut some of the Check Lands, but I would definitely cut Krosan Verge for one of the previously mentioned mentioned cards I suggested.
Also, for the love of everything sane and holy why on earth are you running Mu Yanling?! Wizards even admitted that the cards from that set were made to be intentionally unplayable. The proof is from: Creating Global Series:JIANG YANGGU & MU YANLING:
Now, to properly set expectations: these are essentially special Planeswalker Decks for a Chinese audience. Despite the fact that they are packaged together, I would suggest thinking of them as Planeswalker Decks, not Duel Decks.
Planeswalker decks were purposefully watered down, a product that had little to offer more experienced players. Sorry for the rant, but all i'm trying to say is that you have much better options than Mu Yanling. Try Aminatou, the Fateshifter...just anything but that.
On an additional note, you could also run As Foretold because Atraxa can get that count up very high very quickly. 2 counters every turn (your upkeep + endstep) means you could pop out a free planeswalker on your turn, tap out, and still be able to play responses during other players turns (it says "Once EACH turn", not "Once on your turn") so that would be something to take advantage of.
I think i'll cut myself off here...I have a few more thoughts regarding your deck but i'll playtest it a bit more before I comment again. Good stuff so far though!

Despite what tapped out says, Mu Yanling IS commander legal.

@DrkNinja: hmm... Well in any case, thanks for the suggestions for cuts, sir. I'll probably only cut some of that, & add in exchange Eternal Witness as recursion, and that one card that "sucks" for Planeswalker Tutoring even though he makes for a good repeatable tutor, & actually works for Ajani Steadfast's Emblem to force enemy creatures to die by No Mercy anyways; thus giving me another reason to block with Academy Rector. Here's a suggestion, though: since you suggested Prismatic Geoscope to hit the chopping block, why not Prismatic Omen either? Just curious... Counterspell seems generic anyway. I'll probably cut it for Counterflux; sorry about this decision, but at least it can't be countered by anything else. Mana Crypt is quite a card indeed, though I'm merely mildly perplexed as to why anyone would cut it. Very well, though... Silence is too damn good for me to remove, sadly. It pretty much is a better version of Render Silent, but as your usual instant, & a 1drop to boot.
Finally, Rowan Kenrith: It's Surprising to note her +2 can in fact be used in a loop alongside Mu Yanling, Venser, the Sojourner, Doubling Season, Oath of Teferi, Rings of Brighthearth, & Deepglow Skate. Situational, but it works. First, make sure Venser, Season, Rings, & Oath are already in play. Play Mu, her Loyalty Doubles to 10, Play Skate after, her Loyalty doubles (As well as whatever other cards of your choosing regarding Counters.). Activate Mu's Ultimate to Tap target opponent's creatures & Get an extra turn. +2 Venser and activate Rings to copy the ability, & blink Mu & Skate. Use Oath to allow Venser to use his -1 to make all your creatures unblockable, use whatever tokens you have, & swing with them all. End turn, Mu & Skate come back.
It's hard to pull off, but it at least proves Rowan isn't entirely useless. Plus, what if we add Vraska, Relic Seeker? Then it's GG after using her Ultimate on a third player after that. Even if we aren't using Emblems & Ultimates, Rowan can still burn for 6 given Rings, while Venser still does his thing.
Aside from all that, I like to give thanks to those who gotten used to my slander until now. I'll see what I can replace/Remove. You all rock. ^-^
