I'm what happens when a bunch of poorly-disguised slivers hiding in a hat and trench coat become radicalized by the Machine Orthodoxy and wish to spread the good word of Phyrexia to all non-compleat.

I enjoy obsessing over and constantly updating my curated decks, blogging about how their archetypes and functions may change as new cards are spoiled from each new set Wizards releases. Additionally, I enjoy using CSS to customize my deck pages adding Easter eggs and memes for added flavor and (mostly my) amusement. Please feel free to make a post on my user page, or any of my deck pages if you wish to talk magic - especially when it pertains to any of my format specialties.

Hey franknot.19,

Very interesting take on Atraxa you've got going on here. I do have some ideas on a direction you could take your deck, but what would be most helpful is a full deck description detailing vital card combinations, desired playstyle and most importantly turns you wish to threaten to win the game. There are plenty of resources on tappedout but a great start would be Epochalyptik's Do you want to write a primer?.

Now, as for your deck itself if you want +1/+1 counters then you have to make it a major theme or you'll find yourself in games where you'll have fairly little cohesion. I'd recommend staple cards like:

just to name a few. I'm not sure if the cards being Legendary is necessary or not - but i'm curious as to what your wincons are.

Doombeard1984, first I want to say congratulations on acquiring your first original dual land! Your deck (and card collection) has acquired some truly sacred ground! You should be proud. As for what to cut, I'm leaning more toward the aforementioned Homeward Path . I assume Homeward Path is a countermeasure for if your commander is stolen - but most creature stealing spells and effects can be thwarted through means already in your deck. No need for a land so specific that its useless 99% of the time, in my opinion. That is unless your meta is really weird and its just chock-full of Control Magic effects. Regardless, my recommendation stands. Good luck in your future OG Dual acquisitions!

rennb1024, Poisonous is not Infect. From what your post is telling me, it appears you think the two abilities are equivalent - but they are not. Poisonous ( Virulent Sliver ) requires 10 individual instances of combat damage targeting a single opponent to secure a win. Infect is a substitution effect - instead of combat damage being dealt, opponents take poison counters equal to the creature's power. Unless you are facing only slow creature less decks, Virulent Sliver is not good in EDH (or alot of formats really).

Said on The Queen's Egg...


Hey bigrigroy, thanks for keeping up with my deck. To answer your question - rarely am I in a situation where I can't filter mana through my filterlands. But that's the thing - there's a possibility of it happening. The change helps keep things more consistent by eliminating a possible scenario where I can't tap my lands for a specific color. Honestly I was deliberating on getting the Painlands for sometime as they aren't as pretty as my Expedition filterlands - but they are guaranteed to tap for colored mana. it just seems like the most optimal choice. Just to be clear - I will always update this deck. It's one of my special three that I want to always keep up to date with the latest and greatest pushed cards from WotC lol.

OP_Sigma, I absolutely want to go fast. Always.

But i'll always be looking at new sets for anything that may be of use to the hive. In case there's anything that catches your eye (that i'll most likely have missed) please don't hesitate to share, please.
