One of my building conditions for a deck is that I have leastwise one Planeswalker. One that has continually impressed me is Ajani Unyielding. In Enchantress-style decks, or ones with few instants and sorceries, it often draws two or more cards each turn. The high loyalty and removal make for it to be difficult to kill.
Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer also protects herself quite well whiles bearing a game-winning ultimate. Making a 4/4 flying helps as well.
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is another fantastic card. The instant speed is great in all matchups and, in the worst-case scenario, she cycles.
Lastly, and rather similar to Ajani, is Garruk, Caller of Beasts. In creature decks, he draws a whole lot of cards, flooding the board the very next turn. This card is great, and I am surprised people do not have it in more strategies. (I love it in Elves.)

Atraxa is one of my favorite legendary creatures in this game, and I also appreciate the pun in the name of this deck, so I certainly like this deck, very much.
Also, your choices of planeswalkers do not seem to have a central theme, as if you simply chose many planeswalkers at random; was there a central theme or pattern to the planeswalkers that you chose?

king-saproling - Ah, a well-knowledged player!
When I reworked this deck, my goal was to make it rely less on the commander and thusly removed pieces such as Knight of New Alara and Lovisa Coldeyes, but there are some here I really like. I really only cast him with Evolutionary Leap, Purphoros, God of the Forge, or Gaea's Cradle.
I am not too fond of cards that merely ramp lands with X in the cost, especially if it may get not value. Animist's Awakening, though can be impressive, there is better I can do with my mana.
Lotus Cobra is one I own but isn't in here. It probably should be.
Stone-Seeder Hierophant is one I have never heard of, one of my avocations being perusing older sets for unseen gems. Though it can be powerful and is findable with Imperial Recruiter, it's ramp with summoning sickness on turn four, having but one toughness. Lotus Cobra seems more idoneous.
Avenger of Zendikar is quite literally perfect for this strategy. The only reasons I do not run it is because I do not enjoy having multiple of the same finisher across my decks and it's arguably a strictly better version of my commander. I couldn't do that to Hazezon. xD
Impact Tremors is more difficult to tutor version than Purphoros, whilst being far less impactful on its own.
This deck already has quite a few tutors, and it doesn't actually make that many tokens afore turn five. The value in Enlightened Tutor and Imperial Recruiter is that they can find setup pieces early due to the low cost and have value later. Oracle of Mul Daya early, Ulvenwald Hydra later. I am not too fond of the high cost of Chord of Calling here, also because the deck has a fair amount of tutoring as is.
I have also tested with Safe Haven, though it was just far too slow.
Divine Visitation can get out of hand very quickly, but I have it as a finisher in tokens. Best not to end the games the same way as other strategies, in my eyes at least.
I used to love Shields of Velis Vel. Oh, the blowouts it bestowed. I cut it when I made the deck less reliant on the commander, but I would love to use it again.
Walukut would be fun to include, though the lands slot is rather tight, and I refuse to remove Hammerheim. (It's never done anything. Not yet, anyway.)
Thank you for the comment. You obviously know the game well, and I'll have to look at some of your decks. :)
