For sometime I really had no idea what I was doing with Atraxa - as I really liked the idea of using Infect (even though it turns games into Archenemy for you) but I didn't really have the tools available to really take advantage of it. After War of the Spark and Modern Horizons however, all of the options just came pouring in. My only wish is to have a reliable infinite infect combo established, but there would have to be a considerable shift in the Standard meta (which isn't likely), or Wizards would have to create another specialty set like Modern Horizons. As always i'm seeking constructive input on the deck and it's write up - thank you for reading!

Hey _Delta_, IAmTheWraith,

Thanks for the comments. I've basically been in constant brew mode when it comes to this deck. War of the spark has really gotten my noodle going. This deck is still missing something - besides an awesome deck page. But it'll all get done in due time. As for your suggestion IAmTheWraith Planar Celebration runs counter (pun intended) to my themes of Stax/Infect. For , I could put that mana to better use, like putting a Praetor on the field, etc. I'm with IAmTheWraith on that assessment. I just got my hands on another gameday foil Finale of Devastation , slotting it in for Become Immense because it has a similar effect, but has more utility - which in my opinion is better for EDH. Do ether of you agree with this choice?

This deck seems pretty damn tight man. I'm not exactly a pro at deck building yet but Bond of Agony could be a game stealer if atraxa gives you an edge on your life total.

Atraxa is also pretty good at closing out games with commander damage, so maybe more pump spells for her.

+1 from me
