As an idiot who likes to tap Plains more often than any sane person should... Varina, Lich Queen is perplexing- specifically because so many approach her as "Only a few great white cards", which alongside "only blue drawpower" often make her more sluggish than the deck wants to be. Cards like Vanish into Memory and Second Sunrise turn cards like Geralf's Messenger into napalm- and there are very very many of both in Esper colors.

Think there was an Elder Dragon Statesman where Sheldon describes "Using the whole buffalo."

To be honest, I really didn't pay a lot of attention to the commander release this year, I dont think I bought any of them.

I like the card, I might build esper zombies.

I still play Esper zombies under Zur, who is really good at finding and grabbing those wonderful 2-3 mana zombie enchantments. Yay Zombie Christmas time!

It's always bothered me that 90% of Atraxa lists just go Superfriends; there are so many cool things you can do with her, from +1/+1 counters to -1/-1 counters, to experience counters with Meren, Daxos, and Ezuri all working together to buff each other, to energy counters. You can even ignore proliferate altogether and just go for a 'keywords matter' deck with Odric and Concerted Effort and Cairn Wanderer.

Anyway, one of the best -1/-1 counter effects is unfortunately outside of her colors, which made me think of this thread: Atraxa, Praetors' Voice + The Scorpion God

I did build Atraxa Superfriends...but I don't really enjoy it as much as I'd like. What I really enjoy is Atraxa Saprolings/Fungi. So awesome to pump out tokens like crazy.

I'm not sure what I'd partner. Maybe Thromok and Reyhan. I do think I'd find some kind of pairing which gave me Jeskai colors. I've never been super excited about any of the available Jeskai commanders, so I think I'd have much more fun if I could combine two commanders I like to get there.
