Tendo Ice Bridge Discussion

Ghosty So I'm attempting to do that with the Vivid Groves, but I heavily considered Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge as possible candidates as well. I decided to go with Vivid grove because it'll atleast grant me a green when the counter is taken off of it and I still have the chance to play a superpowered Banefire with it too.
I may switch up the mana base, likely starting with Rogue's Passage if things aren't working out with one of the mana sources that I was thinking about above. Thanks for the suggestion!

Haak Yeah that was the interesting thing that I noticed as well but I think that being a two color deck means you don't really need to ever risk Aether Hub being a Tendo Ice Bridge. I am curious if there's any Energy payoffs you can play in the sideboard like a Dynavolt Tower or something.

No vivid cycle? (Vivid Meadow for example?)

Land suggestions :P
There's a bunch of good lands and serve functions, but a bunch of them come in tapped; I'll focus on lands that come in untapped, and can produce any color. The first ones to come to mind are Tarnished Citadel, Rhystic Cave, and Thran Quarry (which is great in creature-heavy decks, like Forbidden Orchard in your deck).
In lower priority, consider Forsaken City, maybe Transguild Promenade (which is just name of your Rupture Spire, but I'd rather have one of the vivid lands), Pillar of the Paruns, and Grand Coliseum (the shittier Forbidden City). There's also other lands that give an immediate, one color use, but aren't as stable.. like Aether Hub, Archaeological Dig, Tendo Ice Bridge, Crumbling Vestige, Undiscovered Paradise, and Rainbow Vale.
In addition, I would trade your Gemstone Mine with something like Crystal Quarry or Cascading Cataracts. In a five color deck, you won't be searching for a basic land that much. So consider some ramp that tutors for any land your little heart desires.. like Expedition Map, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Tolaria West, and Crop Rotation.
Hope this helps, I'm always here.

It's cool to see an enchantment themed Atraxa deck, really unique. I'll try to avoid suggesting anything with high usage on EDHREC since the description says "different than a typical Atraxa deck".
You might want Vivid Meadow and the other vivid lands in place of Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Rupture Spire, and Undiscovered Paradise. The Future Sight storage lands, Aether Hub, and Tendo Ice Bridge are options as well.
Since you're going an enchantress route and you have a planeswalker subtheme, Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison, and Propaganda would be nice. Aura of Silence is generally good in any deck that would want Seal of Cleansing. Maybe you even want Daxos the Returned, since you can proliferate the experience counters. Hardened Scales is nice in that it hits the enchantment theme and the proliferate one.
There's not too much card draw other than the enchantresses, how about Dovin Baan and Kiora, the Crashing Wave? Painful Truths, Harmonize, and Concentrate also work regardless of theme. Etched Oracle is nice, and Fathom Mage is better, albeit in about half of Atraxa decks.
Not too much ramp either it seems; it'll be a long time before you can cast Omniscience most games. Coalition Relic and Gyre Sage can benefit from proliferation, although the Astral Cornucopia in 2/3rds of decks is better. That's the second most signature card in Atraxa, but then again you've got the most signature, Deepglow Skate. Making a different deck is good, but "different" shouldn't mean cutting back on basic deck functions like draw and ramp imo. Throwing in a few tutors couldn't hurt either.

You said you needed some help with your mana base but honestly, you have something pretty close to a completely optimized tri-color landbase. If you only need the color very briefly, you might get away with Tendo Ice Bridge and Aether Hub. Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool can give you the heavy multi-color requirements you need (but are terrible on T1). I've also seen Tarnished Citadel used in these extremely fast and high-devotion decks.
On another topic, I might cut the remaining basic lands in your deck and add a Hermit Druid combo package, since you have so few basics anyway.
Hope that's helpful! :)

For budget decks, I like Lupine Prototype as it can attack / block quite quickly, it also enables running Stubborn Denial as a great counterspell. Inventors' Fair seems not good, maybe you should go rainbow manabase with Gemstone Mine or even Tendo Ice Bridge, it will help to cast your spell without Mox Opal. Also have you tried the white bird Glint Hawk? It is not an artifact, but it is a great menace with evasion.

Hmmm. Let's get to work! You said you planned to make your friends hate life, so I'm throwing all complaints about "friendly magic" out the window here.
You're missing several important Stax pieces. Static Orb and Storage Matrix are vicious mana denial cards. More notably, they (and Winter Orb) can be turned off using cards like Quicksmith Spy (and the rest of the to-be-revealed cycle). Contamination is a complete lockdown in the right metas. Cataclysm is often a strict upgrade over Armageddon, though you should be playing both. You might consider the infamous smokestacks, but you'd have to playtest them.
Divine Reckoning is a great board wipe in decks like this, because it spares your commander and wipes away token and aggro decks. Toxic Deluge is one of the best board wipes of all time, especially since it's low in cost and modular. In terms of removal, Swords to Plowshares is one of the best options, bar none.
Your landbase isn't complete obviously, but I rarely play below 36-37 lands. Especially in a deck like this, where you plan to lock down mana, you need your land drops consistently. Since you're already playing Sylvan Library, I'd add Land Tax and Abundance to the list (the latter for the combo with Library).
You are in the best tutor colors, and they can find your stax pieces. I would recommend Fabricate, Demonic Tutor, and Enlightened Tutor at the least. You currently have very few targets for Green Sun's Zenith, so it might be cut for a different tutor.
In terms of lands, Aether Hub is very good with Atraxa (along with Tendo Ice Bridge, the Depletion lands, the Vivid lands, Gemstone Mine, etc). In general, my multi-color land bases always include City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Reflecting Pool, and Exotic Orchard.
You want cards that can make your Stax effects asymmetrical. Unfortunately Prophet of Kruphix is banned, but Seedborn Muse can do a decent impression. Same with the new Paradox Engine (seriously, that card is freaking busted).
You might want some more counterspells. In mana denial decks, Mana Leak can be a hard counter more often than you'd think. Krosan Grip is also an amazing kill spell, and Mystical Tutor finds whatever you need when you need it.
I hope that helps! Happy deckbuilding! :)
