"Atraxa, Praetor's Voice: Speading The Word of Phyrexia."

"Atraxa, Praetor's Voice: Speading The Word of Phyrexia."
Virgilio F. De leon Jr.

Sooner or later that is what I thought when I saw this card. And hopefully sooner Magic has to turn to the baddies that are in the plane of New Phyrexia and Atraxa, Praetor's Voice is crying out to be heard. It is no secret that the best Infect creatures are in these colors especially Black and Green and a whole lot of artifact creatures that also bear the mechanic. It is surprising that with the whole slew of abilities  Atraxa, Praetor's Voice does not have it as well but the Proliferate that she has is welcome. 

Aside from Infect that will be in this Commander deck I like that it has access to some card draw , control and creature removal both spot and mass . It's like Bant+Black! Since they don't have names for 4 colored commanders. I'd like to think that they have more character than being called Nephilims.

So Phyrexians rejoice it might not be as innovative mechanic wise in the Commander 2016 sense but it is a Commander that is closer to anything that Phyrexians would want. Filling a void with Atraxa, Praetor's Voice.
