Creature — Spirit
Whenever Grateful Apparition deals combat damage to a player or planeswalker, proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

Grateful Apparition Discussion
1 month ago
In green/red, Rhythm of the Wild is almost an auto-include.
Marath has a nice synergy with deathtouch, allowing you to spend one mana to kill any creature on the board.
A focus on the commander means stepping up mana production is probably the next focus area. Gyre Sage, Devoted Druid, and Fertilid are all repeated, +1/+1 counter based mana, and Faeburrow Elder isn't far off. Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, and Wayfarer's Bauble for the early game.
Suggested cuts: Archangel, Grazing Gladeheart, Drumhunter, Spawning Grounds, Slippery Karst, Vitu-Ghazi, Druidic Satchel, Drifting Meadow, Forgotten Cave, New Benalia, Tranquil Thicket, Where Ancients Tread

The newest debate that I am considering for my Atraxa EDH deck is whether or not I should replace Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver . The skydiver has a lower converted mana cost and can also immediately make itself or another creature more powerful, but its proliferate ability requires a significant investment of mana, which is the main focus of my deliberation.
On one hand, the informant’s ability requires no mana, but triggers only during combat, whereas, on the other hand, the skydiver’s ability can be used at any time, but requires mana to use. Also, each of those creatures has redundancy with other cards in my deck; the informant has redundancy with Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , Sword of Truth and Justice , Kalonian Hydra , and Archangel of Thune in that each of those cards has a triggered ability that places counters on creatures. If I were to put the skydiver in the deck, it would have redundancy with Viral Drake , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Karn's Bastion , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , and Gavony Township in that each of those cards has an activated ability that places counters on creatures.
Actually, I could alternatively replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver , because, as nice as the falconer is, it does not really contribute to the overall theme of the deck and having another source of proliferation is better than giving all of my creatures flying, especially since a large number of creatures in this deck already have flying, and I have two other cards in this deck that can grant all of my creatures flying. What does everyone say about that?

DragonSliver09, I posted a link to the deck in the opening post of this thread.
bushido_man96, I actually have not used the deck sufficiently frequently to be able to provide detailed information about how it usually functions, but I shall say that I usually do very well with it; I do not win every game with it, but I rarely am in last place in any games with more than two players.
Also, I have multiple redundant cards in that deck: as I already mentioned, Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , and Guildpact Informant are redundant, but that group also includes Archangel of Thune and Sword of Truth and Justice in that they all have triggered abilities that put counters on my creatures. Viral Drake has redundancy with Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Mikaeus, the Lunarch , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , and Gavony Township in that all of those cards have activated abilities that place counters on my creatures, so replacing, for example, Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver would be reducing the number of redundant cards in one group and increasing the number of redundant cards in the other group, which could probably be a thread of its own.

DragonSliver09, yes, I would like to have both, but there is no card that I can remove to make room for Merfolk Skydiver (actually, do I really need the triple redundancy of Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , and Guildpact Informant ?).
bushido_man96, you clearly have been following my posts, to know how I think regarding these matters.

Viral Drake is better because of flying and infect. Drake is also easier to activate with colorless mana combos; needing only colorless and one blue. If not playing mana combos and only using these cards for proliferate then there's better mana efficient options such as Evolution Sage , Flux Channeler , Thrummingbird and Grateful Apparition .

Hey, good start and nice job keeping your deck budget under $100.
Budget two drops to consider adding:
- Plague Stinger : flying, infect.
- Eladamri's Call : instant, one of the best creature tutors in Commander.
- Regrowth : recur any one card.
- Grateful Apparition : flying, can be another repeatable source of proliferate.
- Phyresis : give Atraxa infect.
- Everflowing Chalice : mana rock that uses charge counters.
- Farseek : land ramp that can search for and put a dual land onto the battlefield.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Sungrass Prairie
- Secluded Steppe
- Tranquil Thicket
- Quarantine Field
- Shrine of Boundless Growth
- Grip of Phyresis
- Trigon of Infestation
