Vivid Grove Discussion

It really all depends on what your intent is with Atraxa.
Do you want it creature (+1/+1 counters / -1/-1 counters) heavy, planeswalker heavy, or somewhere in between?
Here's some suggestions (depending on budget, of course) for creature heavy :
Gyre Sage for massive mana later on!
For both builds :
Same for Aether Hub.
For the Planeswalker : Refer to my earlier deck link.
Hope that helps!

I see where you are coming from with Dryad Arbor and Khalni Garden, but in my meta, people would snipe the Dryad Arbor just for kicks. Khalni Garden isn't bad by comparison; however, if I'm going to have a land come in tapped, I'd rather have a dual land. The lands you mentioned have been on my chopping block for awhile. I'll be cutting Llanowar Reborn, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove for dual lands, i.e. Temple of Mystery, Thornwood Falls, Yavimaya Coast, etc.

Fling is an absolute must here, and Warstorm Surge is fantastic as well. I'd also recommend swapping Vivid Grove for Rugged Highlands, Brawler's Plate for Krenko's Command, and Streetbreaker Wurm for Hordeling Outburst. Looks like a fun deck!

Not sure how I didn't +1 this at all yet, but thanks for coming up with this deck! I actually made this deck as the first deck I have ever owned for EDH. I made a few minor changes to it that you might like as well that are generally just better options.
1 CMC lower and 3 lower toughness for both Hexproof and the ability to either make Mimeoplasm pseudo unblockable, enable Mimeoplasm to be pseudo unblockable, and/or enable your entire field to be pseudo unblockable (especially off living death). Need more be said?
I saw that you were looking at this one already, and I would say its worth it putting it in. While it is a bit weaker body and 1 CMC higher, everything on your field can't be touched by targeting, and your opponents stuff can be, which opens them up to Avatar of Woe other people taking out their stuff (usually their commander).
Unless you are going to play something from another color, this is strictly better in every way and cheaper.
The other things I changed were things you had already suggested on the maybeboard or just cheaper options, such as Invisible Stalker for Looter il-Kor and Command Tower for Dryad Arbor. Either way, thanks you so much for making the deck!

i would use all of the "Vivid" lands
they work with Proliferate for unlimited mana combos since they wont run out of counters

mike98908: On this site, being told "hey, you labeled the deck wrong" isn't an attack on the deck. It is, as I suggested with my first response, usually a case of a mis-click during the deck building process. Had you labeled this as 'Modern', we would only be concerned about Aggravated Assault being a non-Modern card. Had you labeled it as 'Casual'? We wouldn't have cared!
But turning around and saying (effectively) "You don't like my deck? I don't care, make your own!" tells me at least that you aren't interested in proper feedback that you may get in the future.
So here's the feedback:
Your mana curve is all over the place. It's fairly flat, but the deck doesn't start until your second land drop. For a deck that advertises itself as 'Destroy Quickly', it's slow. In fact, the only card you can play on turn 1, you shouldn't as it's Glimpse the Sun God, and that has in the cost, meaning if you play it turn 1, you are only going to scry 1 and nothing else.
Second, your mana is poorly arranged. You only have 12 native sources of Red for 34 cards that are Red. Yes, I know you have Vivid Grove and Vivid Meadow as well as Vessel of Volatility, but those are all transient sources of Red. And when you're running as deep into Red as this deck does with all the cards here, you are just delaying the inevitable inability to actually cast your cards.
Another strike against your theme of 'destroy quickly' is that you have a lot of enchantments that do nothing, or you cannot expect to see. One of Assemble the Legion is next to useless as you can't expect to see it in any given game. You have three Awaken the Ancient, but only 5 Mountains. Curse of Bloodletting has been done better as Furnace of Rath or Dictate of the Twin Gods. Yes, I know it's 'Target Player' only, but the mana cost is, well, slow. And it would work better if you had more than Aurelia's Fury for direct damage. Where is Shock? Or even Lightning Bolt if you can get them?
So, suggestions to improve the deck: Less Enchantments, more creatures. Anything you have one of in the deck? Ask yourself "How well does this deck work without it?" and then see if you want to include more copies of them, or ditch them entirely. Throw in some 1 drops, even if it's just creature removal.
And good luck with your deck!
