So it looks like you and I are the only ones currently interested in brewing and optimizing Atraxa.

Now, I am relatively new to cEDH, but I think I know a few ways that this deck can go about being built.

We can go Boonweaver with Blue backup, but the combo itself seems more vulnerable and harder to pull off than with Karador.

We could go some type of stax build like I was trying to make, but it honestly looks like it is panning out to be a less consistent Derevi stax deck.

Obviously we have H.D. which seems like a fine route to go, but it seems like a downgrade from Tyranios.

Lastly, we have Doomsday, which seems relatively efficient.

I think the one advantage over other decks is that we can relatively seamlessly combine different aspects of these combos to make a deck that consistently kills on turn 3/4 or consistently sets up a lock of some sort on turn 3/4 until it can assemble a combo 1-2 turns later.

Said on atraxa...


Oh sorry I took your comment as optimized atraxa as a general. I will see if I can optimize a superfriends list at some point and link it in my description. when that happens i'll tag you. Good luck with your search.

I'm currently working on if a planeswalker hybrid strategy can compete slightly (on hold due to work). Feel free to comment or make suggestions if you see something you think would work better.

I say we should post it to the poll but up to you.

----seriously comment sweep please.

oh sorry must have miscommunicated, a lot of the time I use brainfreeze with many of the triggers targeting myself for a labman wincon (It is really not hard to draw a card in this deck). Perhaps I should add mizzix's mastery and past in flames as a just in case. Thanks for the advice as always.

Thanks for the comment. Lets see if I can break down some card choices here:

Aetherflux Reservoir- worth testing Probably will get added.

Grapeshot- Brain freeze requires less storm count (grapeshot 120 vs brain freeze 99)

Mind's Desire- Worth testing. Probably will get added.

Empty the Warrens- The tokens don't have haste. There are not effecient enough ways to kil through these means.

Currently my win cons are: Brain freeze, stroke of genius post infinite mana and blue sun's post infinite mana

Ill post favs later. Went 2-2 after flooding each match, even after i permanently went to 15 lands after r1 g1. Happy though cause in pitty pack i pulled extraplanar lens

next up on the t3 commanders that need a deck, melek. If someone can give it the twice over to see if it is decent then hopefully thats one more.

in that case then all you have is steel helkite, Ugin, and ratchet bomb to blow up leylines and enchantments.

January 12, 2017 9:10 p.m.

its way good. My atraxa deck currently has a couple of the combos listed. Rallier is busted. Have fun until WotC realizes their mistake

January 12, 2017 8:35 p.m.

workable as grixis. sram's expertise may not be the best. Barals expertise may be better to bounce their problem creatures before L.E. 18 lands and a couple of cycling creatures and it may work. (possibly with less grisels)

-2 spell snare-4 Mutagenic growth-2 collective brutality (unless you can find a way to make the escalate work better)

scry options: scrylands, condescend, darksteel pendant, lose hope, magma jet, mystic speculation, select for inspection, spite of mogis, scryfish, voyage's end, titan's strength

January 12, 2017 8:07 p.m.

paradox eggs but way better since you have 0 and 1 drop artifact equipment and sram, before it was just 0-1 drop artifacts and aetherflux+Reckless Fireweaver (more the fireweaver)

January 12, 2017 7:45 p.m.


  • spell snare
  • Mutagenic growth


  • Harsh scrutiny
  • Duress/TS/IoK
  • remand
  • EE


  • dreadbore
  • dark imitations

slightly better?

January 12, 2017 7:41 p.m.

ok so it seems like your playing useless blue and blue producing sources. I would switch them for green sources for tasigur and JUND them out.

ok seriously, might need to add more removal for aggro. mutagenic growth is usually worse than all hexproof sources for tempo purposes. No IoK, duress/TS. more to come.

4 horsemen is a semi banned legacy deck that revolves around Mesmeric Orb+Basalt Monolith+Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. banned for slow play warnings evolving into dq. It is an infinite combo that cannot be proven due to emrakul being milled reshuffling and restarting the combo.

wincon steps:

  1. mill 3-4 Narcomoebas which brings them back
  2. flashback Dread Return to return Sharuum the Hegemon
  3. sharuum returns bringing back Blasting Station
  4. infinitely bring back narcomoebas to ping the opponent to death with blasting station

above win cannot happen (emrakaul looping without significant progress made=slow play). Funny thing if someone can calculate the odds of winning at each step, you can appeal to head judge/l3/l4 judge if the tournament organizer doesnt know or believe in the law of large numbers and the law of averages.

back to modern, the deck just gets absurd amounts of mana, drops in emrakaul+another big creature and swings for lethal (on emrakaul's extra turn)

I really need to stop with eggs. ive either built or helped build it in casual, modern, legacy, edh, standard, and frontier.

Generally for modern decks there are only 4 eggs decks though.

  1. mill- labman and/or bluesun
  2. burn- banefire and/ or pyrite spellbomb
  3. eldrazi/4 horsemen-why did I do this
  4. combination- pick 2 of the above. Usually mill+burn

You have the correct idea, LIFO but each player gets a chance to respond in turn order as spells are put in and taken off the stack. I even love copying an opponents win con and stealing the win before their win resolves.

Ill just find an infinite combo (trying to keep to 5$ unless you have the cards stated above) and put it in actual categories and you can tell me which one you like best. ill put it in the updates when I get a good 5-6 infinite combos together

January 12, 2017 6:30 p.m.

ooh are we going for slow or are we going for slower win cons. i can go as slow, grindy, or medium +winmore as you want. fixing, better than helm. need anything else?

January 12, 2017 6:23 p.m.

lets make this even more painful for opponents. wincon- Magma Mine sacable to KCI, cheap cost, and humiliating mana sink win. I've spent too much time with eggs.

January 12, 2017 5:24 p.m.

Addressing the last point, can we add a recent changes and explanation menu and a faq tab since that seems to be the most frequent comment.

Comment reset at 400 or so please?

Said on Goblins...


It would be better to overwhelm and kill as quickly as possible. Consistent kills though are better since recovering from a board wipe is good too. If you would like cheap draw power let me know.
