Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
Legendary Creature — Elf Druid
Whenever you cast your first spell each turn, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a nonland card with converted mana cost less than that spell's, you may cast it without paying its mana cost. If you don't cast the revealed card, put it into your hand.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter Discussion

Welcome on T/O!
After looking at your list I came up with these suggestons:
If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)
Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

So I'm new to the format (been a long time Modern player) and I managed to convince my friends to get into EDH as well while they were completely losing interest in MTG.
I'm the most experienced player in my playgroup and helped everyone to find their commander and tune their deck. However, I just can't seem to find something for me.
I'd say I'm more of a // player, with a preference for & as they fit my personality very well. That being said, I'm interested in all kinds of play styles and colors and I feel like EDH would be the chance for me to try out new things and go wild. I especially love chaos cards (Possibility Storm, Hive Mind, you name it.) and commanders that aren't overplayed (so no Atraxa).
So far I've built:
- The Mimeoplasm has amazing colors and abilities for example, but I can't decide if I wanna go full fun or not. Also, it has so many possibilities I can't pick 99 cards to keep...
- Feldon of the Third Path is typically the kind of cards I love but gets too repetitive imo.
- Keranos, God of Storms sticks for a long time and alows me to go chaos, but it's ability is a bit boring.
- Krond the Dawn-Clad is flavorful a.f. but 6 mana's a lot and going all voltron isn't my idea of fun.
- Intet, the Dreamer is amazing fun but 6 mana for a 6/6 with no protection and that requires you to pay 3 more mana every time to activate its ability is too much to ask.
- Riku of Two Reflections drove me crazy. Too many possibilities.
- Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is nice too, but a bit weak. Also, since I added Leviathans and Krakens to the deck I just can't decide anymore.
I've read tons of threads of other people experiencing the same problem (and the 'top-bottom' / 'bottom-top' solution) but I'd like to know what you guys would advise. I also know this will probably not be the only EDH deck I build, but I want to know how you guys do it so I don't invest money into something I won't like - done it in modern already.
I love the deckbuilding process but just can't get to finish a deck. I pick a commander, find about 90-100 cards from the top of my head and then go check EDHREC and discover 40-50 more cards to add with great synergy. Then I end up with 150 cards and since I just can't sort them out correctly I completely lose it and abandon the deck.
Did you guys experience the same thing? What was your solution? How do you stick to one strategy? Thanks! :)
I feel I'm about to go crazy with this format :)
PS : last guy I'm on is Brimaz, King of Oreskos. I find him OP as hell for its CMC, has lots of flavor and think he's decent for both 1v1 and multiplayer games. Would he be too weak for a format like EDH?

First, as someone who loves his Ezuri deck, Sage of Hours is your best friend. Learn to love him. Really good synergy with Ezuri.
Other things I can recommend... Chasm Skulker and Hangarback Walker are nice little creatures that can be made big and - as an extra benefit - if they die with Ezuri around, you'll have a bunch of Experience counters and a lot of evasive 1/1s. Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Animation Module are nice, repeatable sources of more 1/1s.
Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is powerful (If you cast a UG creature, tutor for another. Nice easy way to swarm things). Simic Manipulator is an utter jerk move - I see your Avacyn, Angel of Hope and I want it now! - but is kind of best with Haste admittedly. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is a nice extra bit of draw, potentially being free cards (but I like the Cascade mechanic, so this may be personal bias). Mystic Snake is also a fantastic card.
Outside of creatures, Panharmonicon is amazing, getting you two Experience counters instead of one. Bow of Nylea is amazingly versatile and may make your opponents reluctant to block at times. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a great source of 0/1s and counters, as well as just potentially giving you a bunch of cards and life if she's around long enough. Cyclonic Rift is an amazing card in general, Rite of Replication can be brutal if you have the right target (Avenger of Zendikar, anyone?). Conjurer's Closet and Blade of Selves can easily do the same.
Other than that... For your mana base I recommend getting a Simic Growth Chamber, Mosswort Bridge, Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel, as well as the Simic fetch land since you have your shock land. I can also recommend Leyline of Anticipation, Alchemist's Refuge and Seedborn Muse are great, Leyline of Lifeforce and Asceticism for protection, Wild Pair has a range of targets available for you in this kind of deck no matter the creature. Oh, and Proliferate effects like Inexorable Tide or Contagion Engine are great. Then if you want to surprise people with a small army at the end (such as with Avenger of Zendikar), Concordant Crossroads is a very weird card in terms of colours, but a very good one to finish things off with a bang.
Also, if you have a lot of money, Akroma's Memorial and and Doubling Season are amazing cards and highly recommended. I think a couple of the cards I mentioned earlier are a little pricey as well, but I honestly can't remember exactly.
A lot of these suggestions come from my own deck and things that I want for it. If you want more control of the game, I'm really not the best person to ask (and Ezuri isn't a great Commander for control anyway...) but I can give you some some decent pointers otherwise.
My last thing to note is that your mana base is pretty off, and you may want a little more ramp in there, or just two or three more lands. You definitely don't need that many Islands, only a third of your mana symbols are Blue but you've got more Blue sources than Green. I'd say cut four or so sources of Blue for Green.
That's all that comes to mind right now. Thanks for helping me come up with some ideas for my own deck too!

You only have Aether Hub that uses energy so I would think about using Traverse the Ulvenwald because it has a better secondary effect for you if you need to pull a Rashmi, Eternities Crafter. Maybe switch up the lands a little bit too.

I ran Kruphix, God of Horizons for a while and it's definitely fun. I did go the mana-sink direction with a lot of eldrazi, big creatures like Sphinx of Magosi, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Lighthouse Chronologist, etc.
Back when Prophet of Kruphix was legal it wasn't uncommon to have or more mana sitting on kruphix at any given time. Cards like Blue Sun's Zenith and Braingeyser are awesome with him. I did find a few times that I'd have oodles of mana on kruphix and wouldn't draw anything relevant. I ran the whole shebang too, with Rhystic Study, Consecrated Sphinx, etc. No max hand size and floating mana is great, but you do need to have something to do with it.
Ultimately I did swap to Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and I think it's a little more competitive and fun. She's straight gas.
At minimum - as long as she's in play - every first spell you play on every turn draws you a card. Counterspell essentially reads "Counter target spell as it is being cast. Draw a card." Of course if the card you reveal is a lower cmc you get to play it for free!
Now I'm running a heck of a lot more Counterspells, cards that provide flash like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir/Leyline of Anticipation/Vedalken Orrery, plus Seedborn Muse to essentially share turns with my opponents lol
Thrasios, Triton Hero is also a very competitive creature. If you decide to go with infinite combos; this is the general they'd tell you to choose. All-in-all they're all very fun; so pick what fits your theme or play style and have fun with it!

I want to build a new Simic Commander deck. I already have an Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck (see profile if interested) but I want to try something else. I narrowed it down to Kruphix, God of Horizons and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter. Kruphix can leave mana up to counter spells and cast Eldrazi if not, and whenever I think about Rashmi, I just think of Top and Sylvan Library and imagine the value.
I want to hear about your experiences with each and your opinions. Which do you think I should run?

I'm thinking about building a Riku of Two Reflections EDH Deck built around breaking the rules by using Mirror Gallery and copying legends like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Melek, Izzet Paragon. Thought, Ideas, Suggestions?
