SPACEgun on Crew is Big

I’ve got mixed feelings about Deploy the Gatewatch. I’ve been burned by it a few times now, and a recent google search brought me to a page with statistical analysis of it’s likelihood to go off. Long story short, a deck would need 33 or more walkers to give you decent enough odds to warrant it’s inclusion. For six mana it could do nothing, unless you’ve got good top-deck control. It does combo with Enlightened Tutor I suppose, but I think you might get better value out of Ignite the Beacon. I also agree that Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia are must-haves for atraxa. Otherwise I like this deck a lot, and it’s given me lots of ideas for my own Atraxa superfriends deck.

So Enlightened Tutor comes to mind. I think it's probably better than Idyllic Tutor, though it's significantly more expensive. If you're working on a budget, Idyllic Tutor is perfectly okay.

Toxic Deluge is an expensive card that I expect to go down in price soon (it's been reprinted in Double Masters, and in my experience masters sets tank their rares, if only for a short while). It'd be especially good since you have a lot of high-toughness cards.

I think Mythos of Nethroi is probably better than Putrefy.

I also think that even in a deck based on walls, you can benefit a LOT from one-mana mana-dorks. Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Deathrite Shaman, Fyndhorn Elves etc. will accelerate you in a way that only green can do. Even with boardwipes, they're worth it. Note that they also let you land your general turn two, if you get the right mana.

Additionally, since you're not a landfall, I feel like you're running too many lands. Replacing some with dorks will let you come out of the gate a lot faster. (I play EDH with a lot of more powerful decks, and your experience may differ from mine. However, I find that being able to land a meaningful turn-one play like Birds of Paradise is good in all power-levels.)

Speaking of lands, your mana base can be improved for relatively cheap. Indatha Triome is about $4 these days, and could easily replace your Jungle Hollow... Fetches are busted, especially when paired with duals like Overgrown Tomb or Savannah. However, if you don't plan on selling a kidney, there're other ways to improve. Slow-fetches (Rocky Tar Pit, Bad River, Flood Plain, Mountain Valley and Grasslands) are super affordable. Note that they can also fetch your non-basic typed lands (like Canopy Vista or Indatha Triome). Other lands of various prices to consider are Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, Llanowar Wastes, Brushland, Caves of Koilos and friends.

Card advantage decides most EDH (and Magic in general) games. Some cards to consider: Sylvan Library, Painful Truths, Harmonize, Night's Whisper, Phyrexian Arena, Dark Tutelage etc. are all good ways. I was going to suggest Runic Armasaur, but you already spotted that one.

Retribution of the Meek is a GREAT wipe for decks like this.

I also suggest cutting some cards. I don't think Path to Exile is very good in EDH, where one-for-ones need to be REALLY good (like Swords to Plowshares or non-type specific like Mythos of Nethroi), and Path to Exile ramps your opponents. They're very likely to just use the extra mana to deploy a more dangerous threat. Glyph of Doom is interesting, and might be good, but I don't think it would be (granted that's not based on direct experience). I think you could probably just use a more powerful card in that slot. I also think you can cut some of the equipments for more influential cards. For example, if you cut Spidersilk Net and friends you can run things like Collector Ouphe and Stony Silence. If you're running mana dorks, you'll have ramp while your artifact-based friends get nailed.

Right. That's all I got. Hope this helped!

Caerwyn on Why are some commander staples ...

RambIe - I find your entire post rather condescending--particularly your dismissive "seems like they just want everyone to have the same decks doing the same things" line.

Whenever I start out in a new format, I do not look at others' decklists--I break out the pen and paper, go to the Gatherer, and start running old fashioned searches. I go out of my way to avoid learning the format's staples until after I have finished a deck or two, specifically to avoid being prejudiced and to avoid "hav[ing] the same decks doing the same things".

Without ever looking at the staples list, my search for mana accelerators put Mana Crypt on my radar. My search for cheap counterspells found me Force of Will. Repeatable card draw Library and Divining Top. Anyone who is really trying to make a good deck is going to add "staples." That is, after all, how they become staples--their power level is too significant not to include.

Also, I think it would be a good time to point out that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Seeing as you were dismissive of the idea of staples and rather condescending toward those who use them, I took the liberty of looking at the decks and deck fragments you have posted here. Lo and behold, look what I found:

Sol Ring; Talisman of Indulgence; Phyrexian Altar; Vampiric Tutor; Gamble; Strip Mine; Ancient Tomb; Serra Ascendant; Hushbringer; Aven Mindcensor; Land Tax; Rhystic Study; Smothering Tithe; Brainstorm; Enlightened Tutor; Mental Misstep; Mystical Tutor; Path to Exile; Opt; Swords to Plowshares; Counterspell; Cyclonic Rift; Dovin's Veto; Generous Gift; Teferi's Protection; Winds of Abandon; Fabricate; Idyllic Tutor; Mox Amber; Arcane Signet; Rule of Law; Deafening Silence; Arcane Laboratory; Winter Orb; Noble Hierarch; and maybe a few others I missed.

jakeyuki12 - thanks for the comment! Thank you also for the compliments! As far as card advantage, I guess Skullclamp and Mentor of the Meek are considerations, but this isn’t necessarily token based. does have tutors, but they are situational. Some additions I was thinking of were Cartographer's Hawk, Stoneforge Mystic, Kor Cartographer, Enlightened Tutor, and Stonehewer Giant.

Did you have specific suggestions?

For the 4 cmc slot, were you saying I should go higher or lower? Most of the decks I play hover around the 3.0-4.0 range, so I naturally gravitate towards 4 cmc cards.

Thanks again for your comment!
