PookandPie on Rashmi EDH (revised)

14 hours ago

List of suggestions:

Out- Lifespring Druid. In- Greenweaver Druid. There's also Fyndhorn Elder, Joraga Treespeaker, maybe more I can't think of at this time. More mana for the same slot, your mana fixing should be fine as is anyway. Drop Alloy Myr for Birds of Paradise (straight upgrade at 2 mana less), or Copper Myr which finishes your Silver/Copper grouping. Make Manalith Simic Signet, as at least Sphere and Cluestone have abilities. Ranger's Path without Breeding Pool is meh, use Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Recommended cuts- Dissipation Field, Jace, Crush of Tentickles, Aeon Chronicler (can do better for the slot than a marginal draw spell). Frees up 4 slots.

Reasoning behind cuts: Dissipation Field is kind of weak, and I'm often urged, when people play that card, to swing my ETB creatures at its controller just so I can do my ETB again. Also, it can't protect you from an alpha strike, unlike Propaganda. Unraveler is one of the worst of the Jaces, Crush is meh, Aeon Chronicler, while not bad (suspend for 1 gives a card plus a Rashmi trigger the following turn) may not be worth the slot right now.

Why did I suggest all of the mana curve cuts first? Because here's some big shit for you to do big things with:

Expropriate. I have a set, let me know if you want one.

Similarly, Blatant Thievery. You already have Mind's Dilation, which is straight up worse than Thievery (Dilation is random and requires it be out in order to gain advantage even if it can trigger Rashmi, whereas Thievery is a sure thing), so I don't think you're averse to 7 mana spells that use your opponent's stuff.

In Chronicler's spot, use Edric, Spymaster of Trest. You have a bunch of durdly little creatures that don't do anything once they ETB, this'll give you an avenue to use them after they're out, and provide a proper incentive for opponents to attack someone other than you. Similarly, Beastmaster Ascension is a quick and dirty way to win with a Birds of Paradise or Coiling Oracle. It's hilarious, and incredibly easy to trigger.

Consider: Dropping Dictate of Karametra (I don't like the idea of you ramping your opponents. You might double your mana to 10, but if you want to 'control' other players, giving them a total of 30 mana to collectively burn through hurts your atempts a lot) for Progenitor Mimic. Want more value out of your ETBs? He's your man. Draws cards better than Jace with Mulldrifter, works equally to Jace with Elvish Visionary or Coiling Oracle, tutors 3 and under dudes to board with Bellower, draws cards with Zegana (last known information will still give you the card draw even if you sac the token), etc., etc..

Bident of Thassa may be worth a look as well. Could probably drop Naturalize or something for it (you have enough artifact/enchantment hate. If it's really that bad, run Bane of Progress, but card drawing is the #1 priority in this format and Bident is a reasonable option).

I've considered a good amount of the cards mentioned,but the Bow is rather lacckluster, since we hardly attack in this deck. I will find a way to put Thragtusk and Ghost Quarter. Bane of Progress kills our important stuff so i didn't include it.

Bow of Nylea would fit nicely here.

Myojin of Life's Web is great for cheating dumb big things into play.

Thragtusk. Do I need to say more there?

You could go the route of Birthing Pod but you would have to radically rethink your curve to accommodate it.

Ghost Quarter. Great when your opponents have degenerate lands that you you need to rid yourself of.

Bane of Progress is a must. It can occasionally be a bomb. Plus artifact removal is not something to scoff at.

Hydra Omnivore is nuts in multiplayer. And big as shit regardless.

Mwonvuli Beast Tracker lets you search for your bombs. Well some of them at least.

Sorry if these suggestions are lackluster. I have little experience in mono-colored builds.

Thanks a lot for the help! I thought that would be the case!

it didn't matter too much in the long run as I used Bane of Progress a few turns later but it will be useful to know for the future.

Have you considered running Living Plane?

It combos with both Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Linvala, Keeper of Silence.

Also, have you considered Stony Silence or Null Rod? They hose faster combo decks. If you do not like adding non-creatures, Bane of Progress might be good.

Removal across the board is always good. Try Beast Within or Bane of Progress. But removal (creature based) is also just good to have regardless for dealing with commanders. Also stuff like Dromoka's Command could even be worth it.

Qolorful on how would i get started ...

I do think they would be considered so. It depends again on how you build your deck. For example I count Bane of Progress as a boardwipe, and Gyre Sage and Acidic Slime as utilities for my ezuri deck, while all 3 cards still fit thematically with the deck. Because of that I have more space in the deck to fit everything in.

Haha, we agree on something... The axe could be great elsewhere; I MAY use it but not as excited about it as other people are, I'm also a little bit lazy to want to manage a billion tokens in a non-token deck. Would be fun to see Bane of Progress drop after those axes have been copulating... That hammer though :)....
