Dis deck is seksy as heck.
Going to break down my Kozilek colorless EDH deck temporarily to test this out. How is Blast Zone working out so far? I have one or two, just haven't added them to my colorless build yet. I love that this deck isn't just a race to Karn. Great build.

This deck is ridiculous.
And I love it.
Really nice flavor. I've been trying so hard to use Prossh as my Commander with many of these same spells, and he's just not as great as he used to be with Food Chain. I may toss Vaevictis in as an alternate leader just to have some fun.
How often do you fall behind due to the higher cmc of your key pieces? Do you get to them fast enough for your playgroup?

I also like the Workhorse/Reito Lantern idea. It didn't make sense at first glance, and then I'm like... OHHHHH....
Awesome suggestions, and I will absoultely test them. Ordering all the card tonight. I have the lantern in already from a previous tweak that I never updated. Will refresh my list this week. Thanks!

changed some things up today. got the new ceratops in the deck, and upgraded mana base.

midnight00, no it most certainly is not.
Maybe you're thinking of French ban-list? This is official WotC ban-list.

I play Atraxa Stax in a build that either goes multiplayer or 1v1 (so I'm missing some key cards that are banned in 1v1 and vice versa). I can't afford to not ramp, so missing land drops that compound to a higher total over turns is bad for sure.. but there is something great about the early Mana fixing that those bounce lands get us. Being able to play pretty much ANY Walker or oppression card early on can equal a win for us. So you're kind of both right.
I still usually err on the side of avoiding the bounce lands to make sure I keep up with Mana availability.. but since my Atraxa build uses a lot of dorks to enhance my manabase early, I may be able to afford to playtest with these color fixing bounce lands. Honestly, I've lost a few games with amazing cards in hand, solely because I was a single color away, yet had plenty of Mana available.
I don't think taking lands back to hand has to be bad. Usually yeah, and good advice to mention it. But if there's a way to add some proliferate from landfall in here, then it's actually very beneficial to consistently drop lands, even of our land total doesn't build as high over turns. To each their own, but I actually just order those lands to test. Here's my current Atraxa build:

SakuraStorm Thank you much. I adjusted/updated the deck tonight based off of the past couple of weeks of playtesting.
TO is rating the deck 96% Competetive. Not sure what it isn't liking that's keeping it so far away from 100%. My Thrunn deck is very similar, yet slower, and it rates it MUCH closer to 100%. Any more suggestions are very welcomed.

jdbmd2236 hahah. Good point. I completely forgot that was in my write up and an initial thought of mine. I'll fix it. Thanks!

jdbmd2236 totally correct.
That's the beauty of Risk Factor as the Signature Spell. It doesn't need the Jumpstart. It's just a whomper of a spell that will either grant a hefty burn or fill my hand with more burn to usually just end the game. I try to just burn, and hold off casting Chandra and her SS until late game to end things.
Opponent obviously doesn't want to die, so we draw 3 and kill them anyway. Not really using any jumpstart mechanics or discard synergy that would need it.
I replaced Banefire with it.. because paying X same turn as casting Chandra is really tough. I've played games with Risk Factor in the 58, and ran Lightning Bolt as SS instead, and it seems to work fine either way.. I just prefer Risk Factor in the SS slot.
What would you replace it with?

Your list looks great. Can it perform without Baral? I know he's amazing, but he's banned in MTGO 1v1 Commander banlist, so I can't use him in my format. What would you replace him with if not having him isn't crippling to this deck? Thanks!

I love this list, but I can't play Darevi in my format. We play mtgo 1v1 rules/banlist. What would be your best replacement for Derevi, and would not having that particular creature mess up the flow of the deck too badly to consider? Thanks. And awesome build.

TypicalTimmy that is amazing.
Maybe prices between all the dual lands in Alpha/Beta vs revised, same for the Elves and Mana Birds, and masterpieces of the Staff and and Top.
That's my best guess at quick glance. But yeah, that's quite the disparity.
