Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

_Delta_ on The Song of Phyresis

Ah it's good to see that you have built an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice decklist, and one that is more unique than most (even mine admittedly). I use to include all the praetors in mine for the flavor as well as a bit of infect, but my Atraxa deck paints a big enough target on me at my lgs without those kind of cards as people have seen what it is capable of. I have games turn into essentially archenemy at times. I'm still undecided on the direction of the deck ultimately but it's already my most expensive edh deck. But enough talk of my list, here are some suggestions to consider:

(LANDS) Sea of Clouds in place of an Island, Morphic Pool in place of a Swamp, then cut maybe Manifold Insights for another land like Bountiful Promenade as I think your land count is a bit low. Other changes I would make would be to add an Inkmoth Nexus, and a Reliquary Tower. Inkmoth Nexus has evasion and if your goal is to win with infect you will want as much early game cards as you can to get early poison counters in. I would take out Saltcrusted Steppe for Inkmoth Nexus, and then cut Steady Progress (You already have better ways to proliferate, a number of which are repeatable unlike this one, maybe i'm wrong on this one but I think there's better cards you could have over it here) for Reliquary Tower (while this may not be relevant that often, look at how many cards Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur nets you if he sticks around and you will notice you have no way to have an unlimited hand size). And since you happen to have quite a few sources of proliferate, it might not be a bad idea to put Gavony Township in here to help your creatures out since so many on their own are quite weak.

(CREATURES) I would swap Corpse Cur for Phyrexian Swarmlord, as I don't really see many good targets for infect creatures to bring back outside of course Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. Viridian Corrupter might be another infect creature you might want to consider using, I have to say spots are looking tight for me to suggest cuts for some cards but I think for this one I would swap Putrefy for this additional infect creature.

Additionally, while I see that you aren't concerned really with +1/+1 counters I still think Champion of Lambholt might be worth consideration for helping to get infect creatures through for even as much as an outright kill. For other aggressive options, you could go the route of Blightsteel Colossus which can simply kill players (It's kind of pricey, but i'm not sure if that's a concern for you). If you were to use this card however, you would want to make sure it's protected from the likes of your Swords to Plowshares etc with Lightning Greaves, Asceticism, Whispersilk Cloak or even additionally with Conqueror's Flail which I talk about more later. Putrefax is kind of similar if even not as strong, and perhaps this kind of strategy can pay off well with the use of equipment and maybe even some pump spells if we were to take inspiration from modern/legacy infect lists?

They rely on taking usually 1-2 infect creatures and pumping them up with cards like Berserk, Become Immense, Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate, Groundswell, Blossoming Defense etc to go for a kill, and while some of these might not seem as effective here in commander, I still think a couple like Berserk and Become Immense are worth using because I already see you have Rancor here and these can help get around the fact that many infect creatures are quite weak on their own. And on that topic of infect creatures being generally frail, a few cards that you could consider using here to solve that would be Teferi's Protection, Spellskite(great for taking removal off your more important creatures), and or Heroic Intervention. A few other cards that modern infect lists make use of from time to time are Distortion Strike, Apostle's Blessing, and then of course the staple Noble Hierarch and Pendelhaven. As I said before the general gameplan with such decks is to attack with generally 1 or so infect creatures and back them up with pump spells like those and more mentioned above, and that's where Noble Hierarch and Pendelhaven (pairs well with Glistener Elf, Blighted Agent, Plague Stinger, Inkmoth Nexus and the like) give the attacker a boost to kill outright in as early as turns 2-4. A few cards that might help with this route would be Duelist's Heritage, the previously mentioned Champion of Lambholt, Spinebiter, Apostle's Blessing (can be used for offense or defense), and Slip Through Space. And I see you have a couple counterspells here, and so maybe this is foolish enough to work, but I think you should consider using Hatred here. It can be put either obviously on an infect creature that is not being blocked/can't be blocked (many good targets would be Blighted Agent, Inkmoth Nexus, Putrefax provided you added it of course) or any other evasive creature or what may not at first be obvious to be used on your commander, because ask yourself how many players early on/mid game are going to stop you from attacking them say maybe 1-2 times with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice who is a 4/4 deathtouch/flying/vigilance creature? What you can do with this is pay all of that life to simply kill someone with Atraxa and then gain all that life back :)

While maybe I fear a bit redundant similarly to Grafted Exoskeleton, Triumph of the Hordes is a card that maybe you have overlooked here. The trample can be very useful for getting damage through and I would probably want to play a card like this over Praetor's Grasp, Wargate, or Viridian Longbow possibly? I have to say that I agree with FiveEightFiveBC's observation about Grafted Exoskeleton, I think if you want to stick with equipment that is yet better, either use Sword of Feast and Famine/Sword of Light and Shadow or something like Conqueror's Flail. I could see stacking a bunch of equipment and using stuff like Hatred, Duelist's Heritage, Become Immense, Glistening Oil, Fireshrieker, Sword of Vengeance, and such just on your commander as a legitimate gameplan also with or without infect.

Lastly, similarly to my earlier suggested Gavony Township, I was curious if your opposed to the inclusion of any planeswalkers here? Because I believe Nissa, Voice of Zendikar could do well here. Others to consider would be Ajani Steadfast, and Venser, the Sojourner. You wouldn't even have to go far with this, as too much and you start to change the theme of the deck, but these few that I highlighted might be of use to you here I thought with or without the likes of Doubling Season, and all the other obvious things that you would use with planeswalkers.

I will try to think of more suggestions, but I think this is enough for now to say the least as I will let you know I spent about 75 minutes in all coming up with all of this so far I think! Let me know what you think of all of this, as I know I suggested a ton of things and not all of which did I havsuggestions on what to replace them with. On a side note, I have to say i'm a bit jealous, do you happen to actually have a specific copy of that judge promo Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite?

Thanks Cloudius, in fact I put Dauntless Escort on an older version of this list, but I'm comfortable with the number of spells that protect, such as Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Whispersilk Cloak, Bastion Protector, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Heroic Intervention, Teferi's Protection , Selfless Spirit. And also using Bramble Sovereign + Selfless Spirit I can add layers of protection. Thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at your deck and maybe steal some ideas. I had great difficulty reducing to this 99 cards, so feel free if you have any more tips to give.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor these are all good suggestions, I'm gonna playtest the deck on Friday after I build it IRL. See what changes need to be made form there, thanks!

BlueBat93 Thank you man! Somberwald Sage is a good include, I'll make that swap. I had prowler's in here originally but ended up cutting it for Hot Soup because that card makes me laugh haha

t3hdarkness Oh I didn't even consider it for counter removal, but ya he's a land until the slumber counters are gone. Assault Suit really enables him to get someone to commander damage very quickly, especially if he happens to have a Whispersilk Cloak equipped afterwards lmao

Thanks again! Guess I will doing quite a bit of tinkering w/ this one. Definitely will check out the video you posted ASAP, and considering taking the "beaters" out in favor of unblockable stuff like Traitor's Clutch and Whispersilk Cloak.... also, Swan Song has been suggested as a good counterspell option.

Just to make things difficult, you can try Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs. You can also consider running cards that turn your cammanfer into a one hit commander kill like Rancor, Fireshrieker, or Whispersilk Cloak. Also, Bear Umbra would do really well with your commander. Akroma's Memorial and Genesis Wave are two of my favorite finishers. Since everything is dying, Rise of the Dark Realms would also end the game.

Thank you Voke1012! I had indeed been going to add Whispersilk Cloak, and was trying to figure out what to take out. As for Rogue's Passage, no, I had not thought of that, thank you! My goal is to make ninjutsu possible with unblockables, and help the ninjas get through once they’re on the field. In a bit. I will be adding bounce for double the ninjitsu :).

Cut these boisss

Dreamstone Hedron too high of cmc

Warden of Geometries or Palladium Myr

Burnished Hart or Solemn Simulacrum

Fellwar Stone only a two color deck with green - don't really need this

Add more early game green ramp spells; colorless mana you accrue with Kruphix should be put towards late game colorless spells like Eldrazi because that's when you'll be collecting colorless mana

Mana Reflection ; the green praetor and the other one, Zendikar Resurgent should be sufficient even if they only double lands

Admiral's Order the discount works only on your turn (either cut or replace with a different one)

Colossal Majesty and Triumph of Ferocity you draw only one card a turn from these; cut or replace with Rhystic Study or Mind's Eye

Loxodon Warhammer and/or Whispersilk Cloak you don't have an equipment theme/base support

Scour from Existence if you don't have Kruphix, I can see this card just being sad to have in your hand
