Last_Laugh on Atraxa
2 months ago
Have you considered Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your commanders? A: They work better with +1+1 counters than Atraxa and are far more explosive with this strategy (She's better off proliferating pretty much any other type of counter and I'd run her in the 98). B: They get a LOT less hate. If you do decide to try, I recommend adding Jarad as an alt win-con... when Reyhan moves counters, they double again off Corpsejack Menace/Doubling Season etc. and the damage adds up FAST. I'd also drop things like Astral Cornucopia if you switch.
Now as far as suggestions go...
No sorceries, pw, or artifacts I can think to add.
Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas... I run Reyhan/Ishai but same colors and strategy so it should help whether you switch commanders or not. Feedback and/or upvotes are appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

I hear you. I've run discard heavy rats prior to this before. Issue I have with running that slower, more disruptive style is that it just performs worse than other midrange options, with little by the way of upside.
If I'm stretching to midrange, Coco/Thrumming Stone seems strong with a disruption package, into a combo finish, but getting enough rats in the deck to reliably trigger it with all the support it needs to stick quick enough is a nightmare.
Sideboard/land setup is honestly 90% placeholder. Personally, I prefer other options to most of those cards (If only because of the sheer number of people preemptively siding in meddling mage/nevermore).
Surgical extraction always feels like a waste without a lab maniac package in this deck IMO.
At the moment I'm testing a junk flicker variant, trying to make use of instant speed discard and Zealous Persecution/ Ready / Willing. Plunge into Darkness feels good if I'm dipping more into graveyard interaction for an ad-nausiem style, but with all the hollow one graveyard hate its pretty rough running.

You definitely need more card draw Elemental Bond, Mouth / Feed, Skullclamp, Deathreap Ritual and Culling Dais would be my card engines of choice. With eight of them in the deck you should be able to have one most of the time.

You need some cards that can give you, in one turn, enough traction for an alpha strike. Ankle Shanker is a particularly scary example. Driven / Despair, Dominaria's Judgment, Overwhelming Stampede, Ready / Willing, Rush of Battle for that aforementioned life gain, Samite Elder targeting Saskia, Spare from Evil assuming there's no human tribal in the meta, Vault of the Archangel, Overrun, are all super good group buffs.

Unfortunately, as of Amonkhet, Ready / Willing now is considered to have a cmc of 6. Depending on your playgroup, you could probably still run it, but it's technically illegal.

First things first, in my opinion, Den Protector. Consider it. Make a Stand is an interesting card for a warrior build. Ready / Willing is worth a look, though I'm not sure how intensive it is for your build. Winds of Qal Sisma would be a great defensive option especially when you can trigger "Ferocious".
With dipping into a three color build ANY card with a requirement for multiple of one specific color becomes a hazard. Cards like Bile Blight, Arashin Foremost, and Always Watching will be dead cards (stuck in your hand) if your land base is not tuned specifically to cast them on curve. So those may need reevaluation moving forward.
I'll check back in a couple of days to see how I can help with your tuning.
