Wow I never thought of that combo. Although sadly Eureka is a bit out of my price range though for my deck. I'm not going to bother with some of the more expensive stuff like that since I generally only get to play commander like 1-2 times a month anyways.
Definitely going to try and aim for a foil As Foretold though if possible.
April 12, 2017 12:15 p.m.
I most certainly agree, Foil As Foretold will be awesome looking.
April 12, 2017 12:31 p.m.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your combo doesn't work, because Rhystic Study will not trigger as Card:Eureka does not cast the card. Per the ruling on Gatherer "The cards are put onto the battlefield and will not trigger effects which trigger on such cards being cast or played." . That would be broken as heck if it worked, though.

@chosenone124, I'd imagine cost, price, and less removal are main factors.
April 12, 2017 7:57 p.m.
April 12, 2017 9:39 p.m.
Both allow damage to be redirected to planeswalkers so they are ineffective
April 12, 2017 10:20 p.m.
Can we talk for a moment about sandwurm convergence cuz that card just topped my list of enchantments to fetch with Academy Rector woot woot!
I'm considering going more enchantment heavy with my own deck as I can tutor or bumble my way into other fun things to do and lock down the board in a mulit-player game (rather than just one v one) #EnchantingSideboard
April 13, 2017 10:28 p.m.
Sandwurm convergence is rather interesting. I think I will be wanting at least 1 copy of it myself.
April 13, 2017 10:41 p.m.
So expensive....So hilarious.... It may be worth adding as it acts both as pillowfort and offense. What to take out?
April 13, 2017 10:56 p.m.
Spike Weaver. The reason you didn't take him out is because there were no equally good fort alternatives right?
April 13, 2017 11:01 p.m.
Maybe take out Lethal Vapors? Or how do you find that card, I myself have never actually played with the card or against anyone with it, and so I'm just wondering how often does it stay around on average?
April 13, 2017 11:03 p.m.
Both of which are valid options, as for Lethal Vapors it usually sticks several turns until removal or desperation are found.
April 13, 2017 11:20 p.m.
OOOOOOOOOeeeeeee that IS a cash money buy. I've been trying to get my hands on a mana drain for some time now. May have to part with some things I don't want to... Or I could luck into one of the "cool" new ones out of Amonkhet Masterpieces.
Gideon's intervention is sweet. I play against a Purphorous and Nekusar, the Mindrazer so yeah, that would be sweet to shut those down.
You play this multiplayer?
April 17, 2017 8:36 a.m.
Forceofnature1 there is no mana drain in the invocations unfortunately. That would be cool though but highly doubtful that card will ever be reprinted.
April 17, 2017 9:16 a.m.
Yes this is multiplayer and mana drain is on the reserved list so no reprints.
April 17, 2017 10:14 a.m.
I think I was thinking of force of will, which I would then trade for a mana drain. =)
April 17, 2017 8:46 p.m.
April 17, 2017 11:04 p.m.
It could very well be a invocation in Hour of Devastation I suspect.
April 18, 2017 12:02 a.m.
man... i think Mana drain is to powerful and too expensive to be given an invocation.
April 19, 2017 5:40 a.m.
Force of Will is 100% getting an invocation in HoD. They literally had a man chant "Force of Will" in the Amonkhet trailer.
April 19, 2017 1:20 p.m.
They've already spoiled it and it look ridiculous with that stupid bird god on it.
April 19, 2017 3:20 p.m.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong but if you have both of the Tamiyo emblems out you can have some stupid combos like infinite Demonic Tutor and just tutor out whatever you need to win correct?
April 20, 2017 11:10 a.m.
If you ultimate a decent planeswalker, victory is only a short while away
April 20, 2017 2:19 p.m.
April 20, 2017 10:39 p.m.
Any draw/tutor spell is undoubtedly the best option off the double emblem. Short of those I love Primal Command; cast every creature in your deck, strip everyone of lands and graveyards, go to infinite life, and control their topdecks forever. Winning from there is free; worst-case you just Atraxa Beats for the win but realistically everyone is going to scoop.
April 21, 2017 12:32 a.m.
Beautiful build of Atraxa, definitely one of the best I've seen. I might be asking you for advice once my precon arrives if you don't mind.
April 22, 2017 10:06 p.m.
Couple of questions since I've reviewed your deck:
I noticed that you have very little mana rocks like signets and basic land search cards.. have you tried them and found them to be lacking? I know your curve tops out at 4/5 Mana.
What's your plan concerning land destruction spells and the aftermath of using them? I noticed there's no Crucible, so I'm wondering.
Do you believe that Alhammarret's Archive would be beneficial for your build just for the planeswalker's ult as a draw engine?
Thanks for your time,
April 23, 2017 2:46 p.m.
Planeswalker decks are weird in that ramp is less to get them to their spells and more to get them double-spelling. Some low-impact ramp stuff like Farseek is fine, but you often want high-impact ramp cards like Mirari's Wake in order to cross that hurdle from 5 to 10 mana.
After MLD, most walker decks just... ult a walker. Plop down a Field Researcher and an Armageddon, then shrug because now they can't stop you from ulting your Tamiyo and then you just win. About half the walkers in this list have game-ending ultimates, and a couple more, like Freyalise, will take over from an empty board.
Archive doesn't do as much as you would think. Planeswalkers tend to draw cards in nontraditional ways, see Teferi and Narset as primary examples. Among the ultimates, only four of the ones in this list (Freyalise, Nissa VF, Nissa VoZ, and Field Researcher) actively draw cards. Nissa VF's card draw is slow, Freyalise is going to be used as removal often enough that ulting her isn't super likely, and Field Researcher wins the game when she ults anyway, so realistically you're playing to Nissa VoZ's ult with Archive. That's... pretty medium.
April 23, 2017 8:42 p.m.
Thank you for replying with constructive answers. I really appreciate it.
April 23, 2017 9:42 p.m.
So I see Sandwurm Convergence has ended up being added, I will say that card is pretty decent after being the victim of that card at prereleases. My opponent played it and even though I tried to stall with embalm creatures and other tokens from myDrake Haven and a bit of life gain in 4-5 turns I was dead.
I opened a Nissa, Steward of Elements which I may give a try in my Atraxa deck however I'm still not fully sure, and I will probably add a Sandwurm Convergence to mine as well. I was hoping more so for a Gideon and or As Foretold though, but no luck yet from my 27 total Amonkhet packs.
April 23, 2017 9:57 p.m.
kestral287 pretty much answered the question exactly as I would. Basic ramp is just too limited, especially with the kind of mana base this deck has.
In my meta its mainly this deck using the MLD and as Kestral said I would ult a Tamiyo or two beforehand.
Archive doesn't do enough for its cost.
April 23, 2017 11:51 p.m.
Quick question: why did you cut the classic Atraxa mana like Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice?
April 24, 2017 12:25 a.m.
Everflowing chalice is colorless and gets targeted. Astral gets blown up on principle
April 24, 2017 12:34 a.m.
What are your thoughts on Pyramid of the Pantheon? I ran it in a 3-color sealed deck and I rolled.
April 24, 2017 10:54 a.m.
That seems to be even slower than Astral Cornucopia.
Pyramid: Turn 1: 3 mana to play and activate, generates one rainbow mana. Proliferate.
2: 2 mana to activate, generates 1 mana. 3 counters (Proliferate if you want)
3-: We have a Gilded Lotus
Astral Cornucopia: 3 mana to play, generates 1 rainbow mana. Proliferate.
2: Generates 2 mana. Proliferate
3-: A Gilded Lotus that never stops growing
April 24, 2017 2:22 p.m.
I was thinking it would be a supplement to Astral Cornucopia. AC is definitely better but Pyramid is still quite good.
April 25, 2017 11:48 a.m.
What do you think about Deploy the Gatewatch? :D
Your planeswalkers have high mana costs so it seems like a good card to run. Not sure what to cut, so... maybeboard?
April 26, 2017 7:02 a.m.
This has already been addressed. Deploy has too high a mana cost and chance to whiff to be of use.
April 26, 2017 11:06 a.m.
Hi love your deck just a couple questions regarding walkers:Is Freyalise doing work for you? How good is Karn in the deck?Why no Mindsculptor? And how good are the double Gideons or is this just testing?
April 26, 2017 5:39 p.m.
Freyalise is doing work for me, I've enjoyed the walker so far. Karn is removal first and a secondary win con so he is amazing. Pulled the Big daddy Jace a few months ago and left an update but he's basically a brainstorm and nothing else in my experience. And Gideons are being tested
April 26, 2017 6:03 p.m.
Thanks a lot for the fast answers!
Yeah i figured. I already am using Divining Top and Necropotence.
Should i still get Sylvan Library?
And how good is Nissa Voice of Zendikar? It looks like shes only good in the early game.
April 26, 2017 6:18 p.m.
Oh btw have you proxied and tested as Foretold?
I cant decide if its broken or just too slow tbh.
April 26, 2017 6:34 p.m.
I enjoy sylvan library and draw always helps. I actually got an As Foretold and so far it does funny things. I'm liking it. As for Nissa she is next on the chopping block, so you are correct.
April 26, 2017 6:47 p.m.
Yeah i just ordered one for my next playnight. If nothing else i feel its a much better Omniscience in this deck. If Atraxa cant break it no deck can and even if my opponents remove it they might not have more removal for my DS or my Humility etc.
This thread helped me tons in cutting cards i would have never considered cutting like Oath of Nissa or Contagion Engine.
What about ramp spells? Thinking about adding a Burgeoning or a Natures Lore to my list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/atraxa-walker-control-1/
April 26, 2017 6:58 p.m.
Your deck would benefit from both honestly. You have enough basics to use basic ramp and Nature's Lore can grab forest duals as well.
April 26, 2017 10:51 p.m.
Yeah its just that i dont like the secondary effect of Nissas oath and i think other than Abur duals my manabase is fairly good.
Usually i didnt draw it and never had a problem with casting Walkers.
Yeah i felt the same 10 mana is just too much i can probably just win the game for that much mana or tutor for it :D
I think Natures Lore is enough with stuff like Mana Crypt and other pseudo ramp.
I might pick up a Mox Diamond in the future.
I rather play Chain Veil for fun reasons eventho it might be winmore like you said.
Im super hyped for As Foretold!
April 27, 2017 11:04 a.m.
Btw ive seen someone run Mentor of Heroes, Aether flux combo in the deck.
What do you think about that? Too cute? its basically only one card to add that also life gains (Aetherflux) to just win the game and Ajani isnt a bad card in the deck if definitely not the best walker in the deck.
April 27, 2017 7:02 p.m.
I think it's a bit cute but hey if it works it works
April 27, 2017 9:49 p.m.
Yeah idk about i might try it out :D
Has Academy Rector performed for you?
April 28, 2017 11:23 a.m.
I just play tested my superfriends deck yesterday after switching out a few cards. Astral cornucopia was pulled, so was Brago and something else... ended up adding in two more walkers Vraska the Unseen and Garruk Relentless Flip as well as Rune-Scarred Demon and ended up dominating several decks one on one.
The issue I had was that I had too much colorless mana, so I'm gonna take out Mana Vault, Reliquary Tower, and Temple of the False God. Will probably try out the Oath of Nissa instead of mana vault and try to fit a few more fetches in the place of the other two. Very frustrating to keep top decking walkers and not have the colored mana to cast them.
April 28, 2017 2 p.m.
April 28, 2017 10:42 p.m.
I picked up a copy of As Foretold in a trade from a friend. If I can get some games in I will try to share how it does.
April 28, 2017 11:13 p.m.
How does the deck normally win? Through emblems and op's scoop?
April 29, 2017 8:16 a.m.
So after playing with Academy Rector i wouldnt replace it again ever.
Its too good tutor + superblocker + manacheat in one card. Works also great with a blow up the world spell.
I would rather replace some Walkers that are lakuster like the 3 mana Nissa or something.
I like focusing the deck more on enchantments because even if they remove a humility etc i can slam my DS.
