Also I noticed you have Contagion Engine, Viral Drake does something similar with the advantage of an activated ability, albeit require 1 , so you activate as many times as you have the mana.

Than there's Mila, Crafty Companion  Flip which punish attacks on your planeswalker.

My apologies, if you are familiar with those cards.

First thing I'd suggest is cutting a lot of creatures, and maybe changing your commander. 45 creatures is a lot, especially considering the fact that you have virtually no removal except for your deathtouch keywords. You have several one mana drops that are just 1/1s and dont provide nearly as much value or potential as a kill spell or board wipe would. If you refine your creature base, and add instants and sorceries that ramp and kill, you'd probably have a better chance for more consistent games. Maybe add some creatures that generate value off of other creatures, like Beast Whisperer. They will help you keep up card advantage and keep your hand fueled for more plays. To make room, remove your cards like Tajuru Blightblade, Moss Viper, and Typhoid Rats. Thieves' Guild Enforcer can also go, they don't provide much utility for your gameplan, despite being a powerful card in some scenarios. The same goes for your commander. Other than having deathtouch and being able to recur Contagion Engine, they don't have much, if any, synergy with poison counters, which look like your main wincon. All in all, my suggestions narrow down to these three things:

-Focus on the goal of your deck. Look for cards that can either drop lots of poison or proliferate and prioritize them.

-Cut low-value cards. Cards that have zero or low synergy levels and don't generate value can be easily cut from your deck. If all of your cards get good value in your deck, that's better than flooding the board with low-value cards that barely contribute.

-Add ramp and removal. You need to be able to ramp into big spells and card draw to get your engine going quick and outpace your opponents. On the other hand, you also need to be able to reign your opponents in if they start getting ahead.

I would think Freed from the Real would be thematic and an excellent combo. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine both sound like cursed items you would find on a skeleton ship. I think these 3, at least, should come out of maybe board

Fallen Shinobi, Octopus Umbra

Contagion Clasp ? I know Contagion Engine is pricey sometimes.

What about Contagion Engine or Contagion Clasp it would give you some more proliferate and puts -1/-1 counters on target creatures.

THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

This whatcha boi be thinkin' to improve dat' dirty poison build. CMDR next to Atraxa (on the input section) will make her appear as the commander rather than as a creature.
