Rites of Flourishing Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on This deck has a 100% chance of stealing your girl

I love myself a good'ol theft deck. May I suggest the new Thassa, Deep-Dwelling? It's an additional Conjurer's Closet that is harder to interact with and has a relevant secondary ability. Also, you run only 5 ramp spells, with a lot of 5+ cmc spells. This is in addition to your 5cmc commander who is a lightning rod for removal, regardless of how group-huggy your deck is. I'd suggest adding a few more ramp options. There are the usual ramp suspects, but cards like Ghirapur Orrery, Rites of Flourishing, Heartbeat of Spring, Veteran Explorer, Pir's Whim, and New Frontiers fit your group hug theme.

A few other cards that are very strong in my Scarab God theft deck that you might consider are:

Rite of Replication - not theft exactly, but getting 5 copies of the best creature on the battlefield is extremely powerful

Sudden Substitution - probably the best counter spell printed in the format in a long while and it fits very well with the theft theme

Illusionist's Gambit - a highly underrated card that plays into your theft and pillow fort themes.

Mirage Mirror - honestly, this card is starting to become an auto-include in most of my decks, but it is even more potent in this style of deck.

Trying to determine if I should find a place for Into the Wilds in the deck. The potential targets are Khalni Heart Expedition which is slow or Rites of Flourishing just due to the global benefit.

Thanks for the upvote and suggestions :)

Harrow - I do like but Dreamscape Artist lets me do it once per turn, with Seedborn Muse every turn.

Summer Bloom I was running but found it to only benefit me once, and it’s rare I’d get 3 lands in hand without being able to dump then anyway so I chose to cut that for the likes of Llanowar Scout as I can once again do this much more and they’re the same cmc.

Oracle of Mul Daya is on my list along with the likes of Scapeshift and Constant Mists but it’s just a bit too pricey all in one go haha.

Growth Spiral I had not thought about but would run that over Fatigue as that doesn’t work the way I wanted it to

Rites of Flourishing is tricky, I’m not sure if I like the benefit it gives to the board.

What about Harrow, Oracle of Mul Daya, Summer Bloom, Growth Spiral? Rites of Flourishing may be ok if you think reward outweighs the risk.

Well of Knowledge and Rites of Flourishing are odd cards I found worked well when I ran this guy as a commander. On the surface level, they reduce your threat level in multiplayer (after all, you're doing nice stuff for them, aren't you?), but in actuality, they're filling their hands out as fast as possible.

Dragon Fangs doesn't target on it's triggered ability, so once it's in the yard Multani will get trample each time he's cast.

standard staples for mindrazor decks apply, so Anvil of Bogardan, Horn of Greed, and Otherworld Atlas are also good options

I think you all make good points... the best case scenario I can from the hip think of is a path to an off-brand/mono green Valakut deck.

Maybe supplemental ramp and cantrips to help the way with Overgrown Battlement and Wall of Blossoms & Carven Caryatid as some filler with Sheltering Word ?

I dont think that this would be any better or more reliable than already established Titan-Shift though.... but its certainly neat to think about!

I feel like the key to cracking this second preview is finding the creature type, as many of you have less directly pointed out.

My guess is... Spirit or Elemental Druid. So what staples fit the bill? Eidolon of Blossoms is the closest I could find. So this is probably a spell.

Cultivate would make sense, Earthcraft would be a groundshaking, though sadly improbable inclusion, Rites of Flourishing is hardly a staple, so I hope that isn't it, but hey- you know WotC.

What else could it- oh! It looks like a spirit from Kamigawa! Kodama's Reach ? Well it's got the same flavor as Cultivate - that is, the land being tended and flourishing at your hand, but Kodama's Reach is tied both to Kamigawa's Spirits AND to the Arcane subtype, which makes reprinting it notably trickier. So that's my vote.
