Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Discussion

legendofa on Zombie/Mummy Commander

There aren't any Legendary Zombies or Legendary creatures that interact with Zombies specifically at more than three colors. Morophon, the Boundless and Karona, False God are sort of generically tribal, and I would recommend Morophon over Karona. Outside of those, you start trading flavor for utility. Child of Alara works well with Zombies that can bring themselves back or like big graveyards, and Saskia the Unyielding , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice , and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder offer a couple of interesting options that can point your deck in a specific direction. None of them are deeply Zombie-ish, though, Saskia is much more Celtic (art)/Finnish (name) than Egyptian while the other two are purely non-historical.

1empyrean offers good suggestions for partners.

If he wants to stick hard to the Egyptian theme, check out the Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation sets, but there will have to be color compromises for something like The Scarab God .

First EDH deck is 5-colour? Bold move, but I'll respect it.

For pretty much any deck running 3+ colours in EDH, the Guild Signets can work wonders for fixing mana. I also have a Prismatic Bridge deck (Omni), but I'm far from experienced at superfriends.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can also help fix , if you need it. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a monster in this kind of deck.

Looking good so far, especially for your first EDH deck.

Black and white are my two favorite colors in this game, so, naturally, I am excited about the cards in the black and white deck.

Tempting contract is nice, but very unreliable, so I am not certain if I can put it into any of my current decks.

Felisa, fang of Silverquill is nice, but nothing spectacular, and I notice that many cards that are associated with Silverquill generate inkling tokens, just as many cards that are associated with Quandrix generate fractal tokens.

I do not like the wording on combat calligrapher; would it really have taken up too much space to write “whenever a creature attacks one of your opponents, its controller creates…etc.?”

Return to Dust has already been reprinted numerous times, so I dearly wish that WotC had instead reprinted Heliod's Intervention in this set, since that card has been printed only once, and is better in the majority of situations.

Guardian archon is definitely a great card, but its controller shall need to find a way to “flicker” it to truly get great value from it, but that should not be difficult to do, in white. I also like that this is the second card in the game with the text “secretly choose an opponent” and “activate this ability only once,” after Stalking Leonin .

Nils, discipline enforcer is a perfect example of white’s authoritarian nature, and he will definitely be annoying for many players whose decks rely upon putting +1/+1 counters on their creatures; I have a deck with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the general, so he could definitely hinder that deck, if I cannot deal with him, quickly. At least he does not have flash, because that would make him ridiculous.

Promise of loyalty will definitely lead to some very complicated political dealings in games that have more than two players, so I will be interested to see how it works.

Sponsorship scholar is another example of how card advantage works in white, and, even better, it allows players to search for any basic lands, not merely plains! Finally, WotC is making white more powerful and helping it to reach the other colors in terms of power!

I really like author of shadows; first, that artwork is amazing, and, second, the effect is very sinister, and will definitely turn the tide of a game, if used properly.

Bold plagiarist is the latest in a long line of cards that punish players who seek to gain advantage, but, at least, this one does not actually stop them from gaining advantage; it merely copies their advantage. Why is it that the opponent is the one who places the counters on the plagiarist, and not the controller of the plagiarist?

In a similar manner, cunning rhetoric is a continuation of black’s ability to discourage an opponent from attacking one’s self, and punishing them, if they do.

Fain, the broker, has serious potential for powerful combos, and could definitely lead to major shifts in games if used properly.

Incarnation technique would be good for either my Mimeoplasm or my Teneb, the Harvester decks, but I cannot remove and existing cards to make room for it.

With keen duelist, I first am very glad that there are still black wizards in this game, now that warlocks are a creature type, and, second, a symmetrical Dark Confidant will definitely lead to some major politics and bargains between players, and it should go without saying that the best way to use it is with the ability to manipulate your own deck, such as with Crystal Ball or Sensei's Divining Top .

Stinging study is a nice way to take advantage of a general with a higher casting cost, especially if that general has been sent back to the command zone at least once, and has become too expensive to reliably recast; given that that card costs 5 mana to cast, I say that a player should have a general with a converted mana cost of at least 5 to truly get good value from it.

Inkshield is like Batwing Brume on steroids, but its high mana cost does mean that it will require strategy and careful timing to be used most effectively; I personally think that it could have cost 4 mana and still have been perfectly balanced.

As for the reprints, did we really need another reprint of Zetalpa, Primal Dawn or Sun Titan ? However, the reprints of Utter End , Oblation , Magister of Worth , and Mikokoro, Center of the Sea are all welcome, and I am glad that WotC has finally reprinted Deathbringer Liege , because that card very badly needed to be reprinted.

Overall, WotC has really increased the quality of this year’s Commander product, compared to those from previous years, so I hope that every Commander product has this level of quality, from this point forward.

legendofa on How powerful is this deck? …

I've been updating this deck in bits and pieces, but I haven't had the opportunity to actually put it on a table for a long time now. I'm also pretty bad at judging the strength of an EDH deck at a glance. So, I ask the community, how strong is this deck? How much stronger can it get under its current concept, and how do I maximize its potential?

Invincible Warrior Atraxa

Commander / EDH legendofa


For a quick overview of the deck, it's my most dedicated to actually winning in EDH, rather than messing with people or using a gimmick. Start with basic ramp and protection like Propaganda and Leyline of Sanctity , then drop equipment, planeswalkers, and support until I can attack with something like a 15/10 flying, lifelink, double strike, deathtouch, trample, hexproof, indestructible, vigilance Atraxa, Praetors' Voice . (Yeah, I like long lists of keywords.) It doesn't rely on the proliferate ability, but can take advantage of it with cards like Fathom Mage and Everflowing Chalice .

Thank you very much community. I think that at one point the save process failed during the Kaldheim Update and therefore some commanders are still missing.

@Commander_JAR: Yes, your assessment is correct. We came to the same conclusion, besides it costs 6 mana and there are cheaper strong green +1/+1 counter matter commanders. It's an excellent choice for the 99, in decks like Fynn, the Fangbearer , Hamza, Guardian of Arashin , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Roalesk, Apex Hybrid etc.

I'm not a Blood/Meta Pod specialist but Tymna is much stronger than Ravos, because she's cheaper and can draw 3 cards per turn, where Ravos isn't bad at all, but he needs to stick atleast one turn on the board, to have an effect, where Tymna can draw you cards immediately when you already have creatures on the board. But visit the Blood Pod Discord or the primers on the cEDH database for more infos.

B0NGUS on Atraxa Queen of Voltron

As you're playing Voltron, I recommend taking a peek here to see if there are any White or Red cards within that you may consider using for your Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck.

I would ask you to heavily consider Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , as they can move all your buffs to any other creature should, for some reason, they become more viable. In my deck, I'll often switch everything to Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin to push that token generation to the next level. It will also help move debilitating aura's enemies have attached to your creatures.

I would consider, to a much lesser extent, including Hellkite Courser . It provides a similar effect to Command Beacon .

So, we live in the internet age. Information is so fast. We don't have to wait for a magazine to tell us what the best decks are.

Commanders like Prime Speaker Vannifar and Mairsil, the Pretender had such a high power ceiling but could only be built 1 way and if you weren't building them in the most optimal way, you'd get hated off the table because people thought you were building it to be a degenerate.

However, there are commanders like Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice who can retain their status as the topic of conversation in commander because they're always recieving new toys each set - there are other commanders like Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and a few others that keep people's attention because their design space is much more open; they lend themselves to different strategies - there is no 1 correct way to build this.

Linear combo commanders and tribal commanders will fade from the spot light as soon as the set drops but commanders that play well with graveyards, lands or planeswalkers tend to stay in the lime light longer.

Why exactly is Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder in tier 1? Just for Partner colors? If so, why is Akiri, Line-Slinger much lower?

Seeing Roon of the Hidden Realm above Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Amareth, the Lustrous, and in the same tier as Tuvasa the Sunlit strikes me as odd. Is there some secret tech that pulls Roon out of tier 4(casual)?

I'm surprised that Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is "only" tier 3, considering the 2 card combo with Shielded by Faith. I suppose it is because GW doesn't offer a lot of consistency for it?

Liesa, Shroud of Dusk still needs to be added. Probably goes right next to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Almost exactly the same 99. Her tax effect also hits creatures, but she costs more mana in exchange and isn't one-sided, so it evens out.
