At the beginning of your draw step, you may draw two additional cards. If you do, choose two cards in your hand drawn this turn. For each of those cards, pay 4 life or put the card on top of your library.

Gloodizzle I like Sylvan Library, slotting that one in. I'm afraid Academy Rector and Doubling Season will draw too much heat from the table, it's not uncommon for those two cards to quickly get out of hand.

Seems like a really cool deck idea. Pillowfort it up, politics with tons of infectables, watch everyone slowly die off. There are some options you could run but obviously the better the card the higher the cost. There are a ton of really great enchantments you could run, like Sylvan Library for better draw, Sphere of Safety helps to protect you as well as works great with enchants. Academy Rector is another interesting politic piece because if someone for whatever reason kills it off you have plenty of choices to grab depending on the situation.

Additionally there are stax effects you could run with to help secure your safety and reduce the chances of people being able to respond Stasis is awesome for this. Aura of Silence more potential protection, an obvious (but expensive) choice is Doubling Season I just picked one up myself because I imagine the prices are going to keep going up on it.

Anyways there are a ton of different ways you can take Atraxa, I am actually still trying to figure out what I am going to do with mine exactly.

Here's my deck if you wanted to see another perspective and/or get some ideas!

Might I suggest adding in Sylvan Library. This is an excellent green staple on it's own but it also works perfectly with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix.

I like the build. I've been wanting to do a build like this as well, because it plays like an old group-game-green deck I used to play, using one of my favorite enchantments...

...which, by the way, might be a good back-up for your commander, should she get locked up or kicked out, and would still let your deck function like you want it to. Its Call of the Wild. You could also run Call of the Wild-on-a-stick, Zoologist. Another similar but more group-hug option is Game Preserve. All will work a way similar to your commander.

Some good support enchantments to help you set up the deck are Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile. If your commander isn't working fast enough for you, and you've got a handful of fatties that need to hit the board, some cards like Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet can help you with that.

Again, I like your build here, and it looks like a lot of fun!

Currently, my meta has no stax players. When there is I add cards like Abrupt Decay and Nature's Claim. I usually add a basic Island and Swamp as well.

For a time, the largest portion of players were playing counter-control decks. In that community, Yidris as a card is usually not worth casting. That's when I add Telepathy, Dark Confidant and Sylvan Library grouped with a lower curve of control spells and Ad Nauseam for a longer but more traditional storm game.

This version of the deck is more of a blend. The current meta are made of creature-centric decks with a little control.

Bottom line is that this deck metamorphs weekly. I'm not sure there is a best 99 for this commander; more like best 80 with the rest being tailored to your group's questions.

I really like Sylvan Library in any green deck, but it is pricey. Also Concordant Crossroads to give all your creatures haste after primal surging them onto the field as another wincon. Expensive cards but worth it I think.

I think you have too many win conditions personally. I would lean into hermit druid and bomberman combo and add some more goodstuff/artifact ramp. A Mana Vault would be a good add along with a Mox Diamond. After things like that you can't go wrong with Dark Confidant, Yawgmoth's Will, Snapcaster Mage, Sylvan Library, Carpet of Flowers
