SynergyBuild on Atraxa - +1/+1 counters

Astraxa was the list, it isn't super based on +1/+1 counters, but has cards like Anafenza, the Foremost, Scavenging Ooze, Dovin Baan (the ultimate is insane in stax), Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, and Luminarch Ascension, all of which use Atraxa's proliferate ability, but her flying is used with fetching out Sword of Feast and Famine, which allows the deck to get around effects like Static Orb, Back to Basics, Winter Orb in the deck, and the list also runs a lot of creature based ramp, so it can get more mana than the opponents, by using effects like Sphere of Resistance, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Trinisphere, Armageddon, Null Rod, Thorn of Amethyst, Ravages of War, and Stony Silence to shut out all of their mana, and win the game!

You should be able to make a walker variant, without a lot of trouble, I think keeping in cards that help your walkers ultimate like Deepglow Skate and Inexorable Tide is what you want to keep in, along with ramp and card draw, and countermagic/removal. Otherwise most of the creatures can be dropped for two main types of walkers, and a third minor type:

Type 1: The type that draws cards/makes mana/tutors. This type are along the lines of Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Dovin Baan, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Liliana Vess, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Narset Transcendent, Nissa, Vital Force, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, and Tezzeret the Seeker .

Type 2: The type that protects you and your walkers, or hurts the opponents boardstates, like Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage.

Type 3 would be the type that wins the game, but most do that with the ultimate, so I will skip it.

I'd also suggest tossing in a Call the Gatewatch, Deploy the Gatewatch, and The Chain Veil

Saljen thanks for the comment! I have been a little bit on the fence about him, but what would you recommend replacing him with (Keeping price of card in mind)? Maybe Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Tamiyo, Field Researcher? I could just play another Cryptic Command, but I'd rather not have to buy three...

AethericDoom Thanks for your suggestions, I'll take them under consideration! The reason to why Oath of Teferi didn't make it to the mainboard at the moment is that I at the present don't see any reason to why casting it would be preferable to casting a (additional) planeswalker. A Doubling Season let's me "ult" the planeswalker on the same turn that it enters the battlefield, while the Oath rarely does that. That also falls true for The Chain Veil, which is ultimately very expensive to cast + use. The problem with Primevals' Glorious Rebirth is that it requires a legendary permanent on BF to even be cast, which in this case would be either a PW or sometimes Oath of Nissa, again this is a very situational card and often you would get the same or a better effect from just a casting a PW the old fashioned way.

The "Pay 2 life" lands are called "Shock lands" and "Pay one and fetch" are called "Fetch lands". The combination of using fetch and shock lands is one of the keys to building a stable mana base in the Modern format. This is especially true in a five color deck, since it lets me fetch just the color I need to play my hand. Note that all the shock lands are Gx lands, meaning that they all have the type forest so that they can be targets of both Utopia Sprawl and Arbor Elf, leading to both great mana fixing and sometimes crazy ramp. For example

T1: play Temple Garden, pay 2 life cast Arbor Elf T2: Play any land that taps for green mana, cast Utopia Sprawl on (untapped) Temple Garden, chose the color you need. Now it can tap for 2 mana, get untapped by the elf and again be tapped for 2 mana - giving you the possibility of casting Turn 2 Nahiri, the Harbinger, Jace, Architect of Thought or Tamiyo, Field Researcher.

If you're really lucky you can cast Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker on T3 using this trick.

I have been trying to up the competitiveness part of the deck, which includes getting rid of semi-useful cards which where too specific and had a very limit niche to suit.

I've added the following cards after extensive testing.

Satyr Enchanter, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Linvala, Keeper of Silence Jeskai Ascendancy & Estrid's Invocation

Hey SorasOtherForm! Thank you so much for your suggestions!

I am already running the Bant Tamiyo, Tamiyo, Field Researcher.

I just cut Fog Bank for True Conviction, Fog Bank is an amazing unkillable blocker but since my deck is already so defensive by nature, I am seeking more cards that "win the game" and cutting out the cards that do the least. Not being able to do any dmg with that Wall put it near the bottom of my list when I went to make space.

I considered Dragon Throne of Tarkir but it didn't make the original cut. I really need the trample though, so I think I'll have to make space for it. Do you have any suggestions on cuts? Thanks again.

HighOnBuffs: I only had one game with this deck since my update. Settle the Score surprised me a lot. I'm able to surprise the table by ultimating Tamiyo, Field Researcher when she was at 5 loyalty and everyone thought they have several turns to deal with her. This eventually won me that game. I haven't had the chance to draw the other new cards yet to come to any conclusion. But settle is definitely a good card when you're able to stick a walker in play, if not its just an overcosted removal.
