You need to be able to play Rise from the Tides as early as possible. In order to do this, Brain in a Jar and/or As Foretold need to be prominent in this deck. If you can play Rise from the Tides followed by Part the Waterveil, even better.

I'd also cut Glimmer of Genius for Anticipate, Comparative Analysis, or something similar. You don't have any need for energy counters in this deck. Bounty of the Luxa is also great for card draw and mana ramp. For your sideboard, I'd move Fumigate there in favor of more creatures. Also add some artifact/enchantment hate. Maybe Dissenter's Deliverance or Forsake the Worldly. If you play against blue, Prowling Serpopard is a must-have. If you play versus a reanimator deck, Watchers of the Dead is great. Your main concern will likely be against creature-heavy decks.

Comparative Analysis draw little bit cheaper with 0000
Disperse nice catch all
Press for Answers clues are cool
Tezzeret's Ambition draw
i would probs drop the shield. it's pretty shit other than giving you mana for some of your spells, i dunno. maybe playtest a bit
+2 anticipate -2 slip
drop the ass worker. 8 threats is good. maybe even too many. you're very soft to creatures tho'.
+1 rebuke -1 other counter, maybe

As a fellow Rashmi player, you have a very solid deck. Your combo is strong, so I feel the only place for improvement would come from better support cards.
Guile-->Momir Vig, Simic Visionary: While Momir Vig and Rashmi are out, play a green creature spell, lets say of CMC 4. Rashmi and Momir will both trigger. Stack Rashmi's ability first, then Momir's so that Momir's will trigger first. Tutor for a creature of CMC less than the cast creature and put on top of your library. Now Rashmi triggers and you get to cast your creature off the top! Guile doesn't feel particularly strong in this build since you are only running six counter spells.
Vision Skeins-->Frantic Search: I'm not a fan of Visions unless your playing Nekusar or group hug. Since this deck is neither, Frantic allows you to draw at instant speed and then allows you to untap your lands so you can cast what you drew into!
Mind's Desire-->Mystical Tutor: I'm not sure how well Desire has worked for you, but I don't like the random aspect of it (and if you are using it to storm your entire deck into play, then chances are you can win by other means by that point). Mystical Tutor has excellent synergy with Rashmi. Play a spell to trigger Rashmi, in response to Rashmi trigger you cast Mystical Tutor. Search for an instant or sorcery of CMC less than the spell cast to trigger Rashmi to instantly cast it off the top of your library when her trigger goes to resolve!
Train of Thought-->Anything: Literally anything. If you copy this spell twice, you will draw 3 cards for six mana at sorcery speed. Opportunity draws you 4 cards at instant speed at a more flexible cost. Divination draws 2 cards at sorcery speed for one less mana than Train. Comparative Analysis draws 2 cards at instant speed for the same amount of mana. Train of Thought is a BAD CARD and you should feel bad! Try Gush instead. You can cast it for free, and it triggers Rashmi with a CMC of 5, which is pretty awesome for a free cast (same for Force of Will). You could also try Mulldrifter for the same reason.
Research/Development-->Displace: Since you aren't allowed to play Research/Development, why not replace it with a redundancy piece? Adding Displace will serve the same purpose as using Ghostly Flicker; make infinite mana with E.Wit and Palinchron. Having both means that you are more likely to hit your combo piece when you need it.
I have other suggestions, but they are more personal preferences at this point (I wouldn't run Fog Bank for example, and I found Yavimaya Elder to be lack luster). Your deck looks seriously strong, and I wish you the best of luck keeping your friends that play against it!

Comparative Analysis is pretty sweet. If you have baral out you can counter a spell then EOT pay 2 mana and draw 2 cards.
Aether Meltdown might be a good one against aggro

Thanks for the feedback!
I haven't found Rise from the Ties to work so well in this particular build; especially with the amount of board wipe in my area that people seem to be main boarding. Making an army of constructs with Summonings and protecting them seems to be easier than dropping 6 mana for the zombies on my turn then trying to keep them alive.
A few less kill spells in favor of more counters sounds like a solid idea.
As far as draw cards, I have three in mind:
Comparative Analysis casting for the surge cost after using a kill spell on the opponents turn seems like it makes this card ok
Ugin's Insight for a large scale draw/dig (little scared because its a sorcery, but that isn't a deal breaker)
Confirm Suspicions doubles up as a counterspell and draw power
