Vivid Meadow Discussion

I can help, but can you help me after that too? Im pretty new to magic :)
First of all I think you need more tutors, Diabolic Tutor or Beseech the Queen if you want to stay on a budget, second of all where are the Azor's Elocutors? Im not saying every Atraxa deck needs one but... it helps a lot! Kalonian Hydra and Armorcraft Judge are two other strong +1/+1 synergy cards and you can also think about adding vivid lands for more mana of all the colors (like Vivid Meadow).

At your request I took a look and wanted to offer some suggestions to make this stronger. That being said I have no idea of what your budget is like or how your acquire cards. Take what I say with a grain of salt.
What I would consider adding:
Isolated Chapel - self explanatory
Reliquary Tower - should be in every deck as a means of preventing discard due to mana flood/screw
Vault of the Archangel - you're running a deck where the creatures are your win condition, it's in your colors, might as well have the ability to abuse lifelink/deathtouch
Serra's Sanctum - super pricey for a single card, but well worth it in this sort of deck
Luminarch Ascension - 4/4 flying angels for 1W is pretty big, drops early, can be a target for sure, but value is there.
Land Tax - any ramp is good ramp, and this is one of the best
Erebos, God of the Dead - Great for card draw, side note of preventing others from gaining life
Orzhov Signet - more ramp, color fixing
Aura of Silence - tax opponents playing enchantments/artifacts, doubles as a removal spell. 100% necessary
Blind Obedience - tax opponents, possible life drain. Tempo card to make sure that you get to hit more often than they do
Mortify, Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Sudden Spoiling & Return to Dust - your instant removal package is abysmal, you have to be able to answer threats as they show up. Best case scenario, you make tokens with Daxos at the end of the turn before yours and you save your spot removal. Worst case scenario, you use the removal and make less tokens, but you don't die to a combo or something you can't deal with before your next turn. Can't stress enough how important Instants are in this format.
Cards I would remove:
Daxos's Torment - a 5/5 flier on your turn that can't block is mediocre outside of recovering from boardwipes, even then, it's too slow.
Nyxborn Shieldmate - too weak of an effect. I get the "Enchantments matter" theme, but it's a slot better used for removal
God-Favored General - you don't have a reliable way to get evasion, so this will be chumpblocked and die more often than not. Daxos's effect is on cast, not etb, so it's a big gamble for a small effect.
Celestial Archon - somewhat decent, but I have concerns about it being a worthwhile addition.
Blessed Spirits - too vanilla, gets big too slowly as it's based on cast so you can't abuse it with Daxos
Vivid Marsh & Vivid Meadow - you're running 2 colors, you don't need these. If you're going to run a land that ETB tapped, it might as well be one of the other numerous lands that comes in tapped that gives you an additional effect such as Scoured Barrens

For card draw, Rhystic Study is an EDH classic. In my budget Shu Yun deck, I'm using Mystic Remora, Desolate Lighthouse, Key to the City, and Jori En, Ruin Diver, and for other types of card advantage, I'm using Mind's Desire, Past in Flames, Charmbreaker Devils, Narset, Enlightened Master, Elite Arcanist, and Kaho, Minamo Historian.
For making your mana base more reliable, try replacing your basic lands with more lands that can produce or fetch a land that can produce any of the three colors in the deck. My suggestion would be to include Command Tower and some of the following: Mystic Monastery, Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens, Vivid Creek, Vivid Crag, Vivid Meadow, Myriad Landscape, Grand Coliseum, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Meteor Crater, Thran Quarry.

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

The first thing I notice is the BFZ dual lands, i.e. Canopy Vista. I personally think you would be better served with a Vivid Meadow, being that it fixes all of your colors and the counters can be proliferated.

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!

Three things you need that stand out from your list are more fast mana, mana consistency, and some haste effects.
This looks like a budget build so I will try to keep my recommendations to less than $2 each, though I think a couple of recommendations I'm going to make are worth the additional cost.
On the mana consistency: Kaalia (and many of your other cards) has (have) heavy color commitments, so more dual lands are in order. Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Dragonskull Summit, Temple of Malice, Temple of Silence, and Temple of Abandon would be a good start. You might also add Vivid Meadow and Vivid Crag; I generally don't like CITP ("comes into play tapped") lands in Kaalia decks, but the above are pretty much your best budget options, and the temples at least give you the useful "scry 1" while the vivids provide all three colors mana.
On the other hand, I'm personally NOT a fan of the "karoo" lands (i.e. Rakdos Carnarium), especially because there's a good chance that the land you're going to be bouncing is going to come back into play tapped; you're better off with the Guildgates, the Tarkir "refuge" lands (i.e. Wind-Scarred Crag), or basic lands.

I would suggest the vivd lands, i.e. Vivid Marsh, Vivid Meadow, etc. Since they use counters to make any color of mana, they work really well with proliferate. I'd also suggest some spot removal, such as Go for the Throat or Grasp of Darkness. To increase speed, normally I'd consider mana dorks, like Birds of Paradise.
