Atraxa SuperSmog!

This is a superfriends based Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck that aims to slow your opponents down, respond to threats during setup, abuse planeswlaker abilities to stop your opponents and win you the game. The primary win condition is having Professor Onyx or Witherbloom Apprentice on the battlefield and casting Chain of Smog, targeting yourself and copying it enough times for the Magecraft static ability to kill the table, all of which can be tutored to your hand/directly to the battlefield.

Deck Mechanics


Chain of Smog + Witherbloom Apprentice - Target yourself with Chain of Smog while Witherbloom Apprentice is in play, copy it infinite times and kill the table with Magecraft.

Chain of Smog + Professor Onyx - The same applies as above, only a little more expensive to pull off. Most of the time you are cheating Professor Onyx into play with Arena Rector.

Ideally you want to start by casting Silence, Veil of Summer, or Autumn's Veil to protect your combo from counter spells. Your opponents can hold their counter spell until Chain of Smog copies enough times to empty your hand, then counter THAT copy to disrupt the "chain" and stop the combo from going infinite. These 3 spells will protect you from the vast majority of counters and disruption, leaving you open for the win.

We can go off with Teferi, Temporal Archmage + The Chain Veil to tick our planeswalkers multiple times per turn, and infinite ticks with Carth the Lion + Teferi, Temporal Archmage + The Chain Veil is in play to make Teferi's -1 become a 0. This requires permanents that tap for more than 1 mana, which is where Ancient Tomb, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Bloom Tender all come in. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, and Tezzeret the Seeker also help us untap to squeeze value out of our planeswalkers and play more spells.

Getting to ultimate Tamiyo, Field Researcher or Karn Liberated simply wins you the game, everyone scoops because they know what's coming. But you must be prepared to grind out a win if they don't.

Or we just make a ton of kraken tokens from Kiora, the Crashing Wave's emblem.


Doubling Season and Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider need no introduction. If we have either in play, we are trying hard to cast either Tamiyo, either Elspeth, any Teferi, Venser, the Sojourner, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, etc. Carth the Lion adds a ton of value at a minimum, and turbos your planeswalker ultimates/unlocks Teferi, Temporal Archmage at best. Use Oath of Teferi or Venser, the Sojourner to blink and reset a planeswalker, or have them come back in after you drop Doubling Season or Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider.

I have added and removed dozens and dozens of cards in this deck and narrowed it very finely down to this list, but nothing is ever final. Any suggestions are welcome and I would love to hear if there are better ways to accomplish my goal faster or more consistently.
