cool deck, but why do you have Cascading Cataracts in this deck? if you really want a indestructible land then yeah sure, but othewvise Unclaimed Territory would be much better! when are you going to use any color of mana at turn six anyway? or if you want to get kinda janky then use Grove of the Guardian, if you want filtering you could use Saltcrusted Steppe, if you want card advantage or card filtering use Temple of Plenty, Horizon Canopy or Scattered Groves, seriously there are a lot of better options. but cool deck thou.

Plus, a suggestion for the deck, storage lands could be immensely useful for your purpose, if you don't start off with lands on the battlefield. You could spend all of your mana on the lands then blow it all once you can afford the creatures!

Also AmazingGrace15 you could probably lower the amount of lands you play being that you have rocks and ramp. Maybe 36? that tends to be a decent balance. Also, since you're budget, storage lands could be a good way to build up for something huge in one turn. Fungal Reaches and Saltcrusted Steppe. There is also storage lands of each individual color. I just thought the dual mana ones would be better. I would add in more board wipes and targeted removal for the spots of bringing your lands down. Your deck is going to be relatively slow, so you want to stall everyone as much as possible. Also, Kindred Boon seems like a great card here to keep your dinosaurs on the board. Also helps Pyrohemia as you can deal any amount of damage (that doesn't kill you) to make sure the board stays wipes. What about True Conviction? the lifelink I feel would be relevant, and who isn't scared of an army of powerful dinosaurs with double strike?

Nice, I also have an atraxa decklist. You might want to check it out, it could give you some ideas. I'm not sure how much play you've gotten with atraxa, but i've found that people really hate her, and tend to target her quickly (might just be my local meta) but having a way to get counters on her as she comes in is great. I see you already have Master Biomancer, but other cards with graft are a great way to get counters on atraxa. Cards like Plaxcaster Frogling, and Llanowar Reborn are FAN-TAS-TIC in this type of deck.

Also if we're talking about abusing counters, nothing beats Parallax Wave. As for other great (and very broken cards) in atraxa: Spike Weaver for infinite fog, Sage of Hours for infinite turns (its like Lighthouse Chronologist but your opponents can't stop you). Retribution of the Ancients turns counters into killing power. Odric, Lunarch Marshal, because your commander has FOUR KEYWORDS. And why not toss in Umezawa's Jitte to kill your opponent in no time with commander damage?

But I hear you saying: "this is to much mana, I can't cast all this!" WRONG. Atraxa has THE BEST four color manabase out of all the 2016 commanders. I see you have some of the vivid lands and one of the storage lands, grabbing the other two vivid's and storage lands from that cycle would be best. Vivid Marsh and Vivid Creek, Saltcrusted Steppe and Calciform Pools. You can also add lands that would normally only tap for 5 colors sometimes, but always tap for any color with atraxa. Like: Aether Hub, Mirrodin's Core and Gemstone Mine to name a few.

As for cuts? Cut all of the cards that don't have synergies with counters first, and then cards that don't Synergize that well after that. My picks for removal would be Bred for the hunt, commander's sphere, garruk wild-speaker, reveillark, zameck guildmage (sage of fables does this for colorless mana), and abzan falconeer.

Sorry for the long post, I did alot of brewing on my atraxa list. Let me know if you want more feedback.
