Astral Cornucopia enters the battlefield with X charge counters on it.
: Choose a colour. Gain one mana of that colour for each charge counter on Astral Cornucopia.
Astral Cornucopia Discussion

So a weird Liquimetal Coating list.
Proliferate spells remove a lot of clunkiness too, while Pentad Prism goes a long way to fixing budget manabase clunkiness.
Best of luck with the brew.

Idk if I could help you make your deck more "janky" but I have some suggestions for cards you could use to get multiple colors. Astral Cornucopia , Mirrodin's Core , Pyramid of the Pantheon , or Mirage Mirror .

Firstly, Magic restricts cards to be a maximum of 4-of, so you certainly can’t run 6 Power Conduit .
You have loads of ways to apply charge counters but no real way to benefit from it - with the only targets being Blast Zone and Astral Cornucopia . Consider running some Chalice of the Void , and perhaps a Walking Ballista or two to make use of all the mana you might end up with

i think you have a nice counters theme going on but id get rid of cards like Forgotten Ancient , Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker for cards like Mikaeus, the Lunarch . and then maybe Fathom Mage for Kiora, the Crashing Wave . its more efficient and since you have a lot of strong creatures on the board, running a few utility planewalkers wouldnt hurt since its very easy for you to protect them. pws like Tamiyo, Field Researcher (instead of lets say, as foretold) or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are a must in any atraxa deck regardless of their core strategy. its just too easy to ultimate with them in multiple ways.
other then that id say this deck is great and it has a nice theme going on. you could just make a few more efficient tweaks imo.

Hey, nice start, several good cards and interactions here.
The manabase alone tells me this is a budget deck, but there's some budget upgrades to consider for the manabase. Your relying on basic lands which is fine on a budget, but if playing a lot of basic lands then consider adding lands that have interaction with basic lands?
- Ash Barrens
- Prairie Stream
- Sunken Hollow
- Canopy Vista
- Port Town : cares about Plains and Islands.
- Fortified Village : cares about Forests and Plains.
- Choked Estuary : cares about Islands and Swamps.
- Woodland Cemetery : cares about Swamps and Forests.
Stream, Hollow and Vista have interaction with Farseek . Farseek being a two drop land ramp spell that can get a dual land is good when playing four colors. Other budget lands to consider adding:
- Llanowar Wastes
- Yavimaya Coast
- Mirrodin's Core : uses counters, it can be proliferated.
- Scattered Groves : has interaction with Farseek, can be a less expensive replacement for Canopy Vista .
- Irrigated Farmland : has interaction with Farseek.
Additional mana sources that use counters thus have interaction with proliferate is helpful ramp:
- Astral Cornucopia
- Everflowing Chalice
- Crystalline Crawler : a creature and a mana rock, don't have to tap it to make mana which is very good.
- Gyre Sage
If going heavy on the +1/+1 counters theme then consider these cards that are within the budget here:
- Hadana's Climb Flip: repeatable source of counters, Winged Temple of Orazca with Atraxa or a creature with a lot of counters can be a win condition.
- Simic Ascendancy : repeatable source of counters and can be a win condition.
- Winding Constrictor
- Good-Fortune Unicorn
- Sage of Hours : extra turns by removing counters, good interaction with Forgotten Ancient .
- Skullbriar, the Walking Grave
- Hardened Scales
- Cathars' Crusade
Cards that give you repeatable sources of counters should be priority over cards that only give you a one time source of counters. Repeatable effects especially if they don't cost any mana are very good in Commander.
More repeatable sources of proliferate can be helpful:
Other good budget cards to consider adding:
- Eladamri's Call
- Beast Within
- Swords to Plowshares
- Deathrite Shaman
- Fellwar Stone
- Arcane Denial
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

I love the deck name. I got a few suggestions:
Your land-base can use some work. I highly suggest Command Tower , City of Brass , Mana Confluence and Prismatic Vista . The prices on these lands varies, but they're all good (especially Command Tower )...
Xerox cards, sort of like your Opt , will allow you to run slightly fewer lands -- they'll dig you to what you need and past what you don't. I highly recommend running Ponder and Preordain in any blue deck; Brainstorm is great, too, though it requires slightly more shuffle effects than just Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds .
I think Swords to Plowshares is a lot better than Path to Exile . Ramping an opponent in a format filled with high-power cards is actively dangerous, and I suggest Path to Exile only in highly aggro decks that need to remove blockers to kill an opponent. Giving an opponent a little life is much less significant. Similarly, I think Grasp of Fate is likely a lot better than Pacifism .
Narset, Parter of Veils is a bomb in EDH, especially if you can pair her with a well-timed Windfall . Similarly, many decks have at least a decent number of search effects, meaning that Ashiok, Dream Render is also a powerhouse.
Like the aforementioned Windfall , there're a bunch of card-advantage spells to consider. Painful Truths is a favorite of mine, and Fact or Fiction , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise , Phyrexian Arena etc. are all awesome. Fathom Mage can also draw you cards.
One major bonus to playing green in EDH is that it grants you access to the best dorks; in these colors, you can play pretty much all the best ones except Orcish Lumberjack . Some are more expensive than others, but since dorks (and their low cost) are the best ramp in the game, you should consider running any number of these: Avacyn's Pilgrim , Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Elves of Deep Shadow , Deathrite Shaman , Noble Hierarch , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender will all be powerhouses in this deck.
There're some charge-counter artifacts to consider, as you can proliferate the counters. Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia come immediately to mind, and Coalition Relic and Transmogrifying Wand are both powerful as well.
Depending on your meta, there're some enchantments you should consider: Mystic Remora is often an Ancestral Recall in more inexperienced metas; Compost can be a powerhouse, as black is the second most common color after blue; heavy blue metas are friendly to Carpet of Flowers ; and similarly, since you're not running any Island s outside the basics yourself, Choke can be good.
I think you forgot Sol Ring ...
If you want, you can run a little bit o' hate. Grafdigger's Cage is probably the best Stax piece in the current meta. Smokestack is a fun piece of work you can proliferate, if necessary; running it in conjunction with Orochi Hatchery or just Bitterblossom can give you all the advantage you need.

Hey Daevied, So finding replacements for cost artifacts is pretty tough, as all the good ones are kind of expensive. So, rather than go with the "very best" why don't we look at some less optimal options: Mox Tantalite is definitely one of the less powerful moxes, but it's still a mox! Additionally, you could try your luck with Astral Cornucopia and/or Everflowing Chalice . Of the bunch I mentioned, I'd go with the Tantalite and the Chalice if you had to stick with mana rocks. You'd probably be better off with ramp though. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are excellent options in my opinion.
Hope that answers your question! Also, your English is really good!
