I tend to run a harder control list, which means I focus a bit less on proliferation and Planeswalkers and more on interaction and tool boxing. My list does not really deviate too much from standard Atraxa lists outside of overall Walker selection, but a few things from War of the Spark excite me:
Ignite the Beacon is pretty handy. I am unsure if it will end up being a bit overpriced for what it does, but I suspect it will work out well in situations where you spent early game setting yourself up over digging for heavy hitters. The number 2 is what really excites me and 2.5 mana each seems fair.
Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor is a nice way to protect a board, I am not sure I will find room for it though. It seems pretty fair and I like to be a step up above fair if possible.
Narset, Parter of Veils is probably the card I am most excited about. Leovold, Emissary of Trest was a really strong card, and while Narset does not exactly mimic all aspects of it, it mimics the oppressive part of him and can dig deep in the process. Having a proliferate option in Karn's Bastion is pretty powerful. You additionally have the option of simply not using her and instead letting her act as an attackable enhancement if they can get through to her.
I also deeply appreciate Teferi, Time Raveler. Protects your sorcery speed Walker casting game quite well and has some flexibility to boot.
Deliver Unto Evil Seems pretty powerful, even without Bolas in the picture.
Spark Double seems handy.
Narset's Reversal seems like it just allows for potentially insane plays and has 100% uptime of just being good.
Overall, I am pretty selective about what my WAR adds will be and I have note entirely narrowed them down, but I think this was a great set for players in the WUBG colors.

Druids' Repository, Eternal Witness, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
Ashiok, Dream Render, Narset, Parter of Veils, and Assassin's Trophy
It has been a long time since I have posted an update to the deck. Some of that is due to life being way too crazy and some is the normal ebb and flow of interest in the hobby. Repository is a card I love for Atraxa but I think is better suited to the creatures/counters build. Ewit is great but I think perhaps the new Tamiyo is better for the superfriends deck. That is another card I was considering and will perhaps test. Nissa I liked as an early play but I think Narset and or Ashiok add more angles to the deck. Restricting the graveyard and extra card draw is nice and lets us have more control over games.
