Atraxa "pandemic" themed deck

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on March 29, 2020, 2:15 a.m. by vasarto77

I wanna make a Atraxa deck, but themed on the concept of all the cards "or as many cards as I can" that has the name of the card reference Disease, pandemics, quarantines, Lock downs etc. I think from another post I made before I got the idea to make a deck from this along with some other similar related posts I have a good start, but would also like to ask for suggestions for what might be good for not just this theme, but a good deck in general.

So far I have Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as my commander since I wanted to use both Soul Link and Pestilence as a combo in the deck which is why I changed my mind about doing a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon deck since Atraxa would open up the white I needed for Spirit link and also gives me access to Green which is commanders second strongest color next to also giving me Blue.

Cards I have in mind so far are Pox Spread the Sickness Quarantine Field Contamination Blightsteel Colossus Blighted Agent as well as all the other best infect creatures out there I can find. Engineered Plague Plague Wind Small Pox as a maybe? Then of course staples like the mana rocks and lands I will need. And of course I am going to do a little proliferating as well.

smackjack - OH, sorry. I got the wrong card name. The card I was thinking of was Soul Link So, you enchant a creature of yours and then when it gets dealt damage it heals me the one pestilence deals to me. Maybe I could also throw it on something like a Stuffy Doll?
