I'd use Opportunity over thought cast. It's more mana but you get more cards

Hey there! I think there are some ramp cards you should consider that are below the one-dollar mark. Try replacing Pilgrim's Eye and Traveler's Amulet with cards like Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, etc. This and cared draw are most essential, which blue has a bounty of the latter like Treasure Cruise, Opportunity, and Foresee. Also, there are some cards that are not quite doing enough for what you want in an EDH deck. Consider cutting cards like Magma Jet, Hungry Flames, Izzet Chronarch, Anarchist, etc. and replacing them with other cards that you would want to double with all your copiers such as one great example you have in there, Fireball. For example, Comet Storm would be awesome with this deck style. For removal, consider cards like Reality Shift, Rapid Hybridization, Curse of the Swine, or even Red Sun's Zenith. For retrieval, instead of Feldon's Cane or Elixir of Immortality, consider maybe Spelltwine, Call to Mind, and Pull from the Deep. Rise from the Tides seems like an auto-include as well. Hope this improves your consistency! :)

Mana has been great, I just started playtesting so I've only got about 10 games or so but I have yet to get color screwed Cragon18. As for New Perspectives... I'm still iffy on it. It's really good when I can play it safely but I rarely find myself needing it or wishing I had it. The deck functions really well without it so currently it feels like a strictly worse Opportunity... I think I'm going to cut it for another couple counterspells honestly but I'm still seeing if its worth it. I definitely think it fits way better in a deck like Shadow Perspective Combo (Competitive) than in mine.

The deck has been super fun and it does fairly well against aggro decks so far.

It seems to me like some card draw would be good here. Jace's Ingenuity is 3 cards at instant speed, or Opportunity if you want to commit to six mana.

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!

Mana Leak-->Arcane Denial: Strictly better counter spell. Mana leak is situational and will rarely be relevant.

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!

Recurring Insight is a decent upgrade to Opportunity in my opinion. Same CMC and on average will draw you more cards for the same cost with the benefit of triggering Arjun for a second time.

Looks like an interesting deck! Some of the cards that I don't think are pulling their weight includeSpellbook, Condescend, Ertai's Meddling, Serum Visions, Horribly Awry, Hedron Alignment, Damping Engine and Ransack

  1. Your list doesn't have Peregrine Drake or Deadeye Navigator in it right now. Though if you wanted that combo you could do the pauper version with Peregrine Drake/Great Whale, Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall and Ghostly Flicker/Displace/Illusionist's Stratagem.

  2. Winterblast has some great suggestions as well! I really like the Isochron Scepter idea

  3. Lullmage Mentor seems tailor made for this deck!

  4. card draw!!! Rhystic Study, Preordain, Dragonlord's Prerogative, Opportunity

  5. some other cool cards to add are more counterspell creatures like Glen Elendra Archmage, Draining Whelk or Soratami Savant and self bounce stuff like Crystal Shard and Erratic Portal

  6. you could also swap Phyrexian Ingester for Duplicant for mana cost reasons

Hope i could suggest some off the wall cards for you to think about, have fun being the control player!!
