Rites of Flourishing Discussion

Spirits I'll just start where I left off: Oreskos Explorer seemed to make sense when I was building the deck, in that it's a form of land searching that Arahbo can buff, and while I have actually used it's ability successfully a few times, I can't help but think that now that some other unconditional ramp spell would be more effective.
I quite like Sylvan Reclamation personally, partially due to the land cycling. Aura Shards and by extension, Qasali Slingers do attract quite a bit of hate and from experience don't last very long so it useful in that sense as well. I am pretty light on creature removal though as a result.
I won't lie, the idea of running Rhonas as actually hugely attractive to me, used him in modern a lot and he's such a powerful card. Great idea, I'll definitely look at putting him in somewhere. Same goes for Sylvan Library.
Thanks for the upvote! I'll definitely check your deck out. I get the impression that you're trying to build a far better one than I am but I'll try be of some use.

Noticed you have Lifelink, like Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Ajani, Mentor of Heroes/Etc. Why no Felidar Sovereign do you find you dont get over that 40 life barrier? Just interested, I was thinking of running him as an alternate-win con.
Does Godsend do enough work for it's High CMC? I originally thought about it, but it doesn't stop Commanders because they never get exiled by it, and Commander as it is, unless you run up against a heavy unburial deck does it do much else?
How have you found Hungry Lynx, I keep looking at him and thinking nope, when rats die awesome, but what if I load up my opponents with deathtouch rates, they remove the Hungry Lynx now I'm walking my cats into 1/1 deathtouch that I provided them, that sucks.
Oreskos Explorer being green and ramping, you usually have more lands than opponents? Is it worth the risk of not drawing him turn 1-4 where he might be viable?
Suprised to see Sylvan Reclamation, with so much artifact/enchantment control, Aura Shards, Qasali Slingers, Return to Dust etc, this one is HIGH CMC, but I'm guessing you just Cycle it and move on for the CMC2, and if you need it, then you have it?
I noticed ZendikariWol posted about Howling Mine and Alms Collector and Rites of Flourishing, I haven't posted on the community, but my gut tells me that doesn't work. Drawing an "additional" card, is not the same as "would draw two or more". I stand to be corrected but, Alms Collector with check on the turn draw, only 1 ok nothing, check on resolving the Howling Mine triggered ability, only 1 ok nothing, same for Rites of Flourishing. A Wheel of Fortune or Blue Sun's Zenith for sure there he makes his mark, but I think ZendikariWol assessment is incorrect.
I've had success with Rhonas the Indomitable, he is 5/5 Indestructible/Deathtouch for CMC3 and can always attack with ANY cat on the board. Although, he is not a Cat, he can give a Cat trample if it's blocked.
No Sylvan Library?

I understand. And indeed, rites does give you that extra land when your deck goes off and you draw an extra 20 cards for example. Ill look into it for sure.
As a side note, I'm convinced that Retreat to Kazandu and Rites of Flourishing are not compareable. Retreats purpose is not card advantage, but board presence and to combo. It is actually a vital piece to the strategy.
For instance, 2 months ago I played at my LGS against some selvala deck and a mono black deck. The selvala had the balls to play Primal Vigor on her turn 4 (using selvala to do so). Well the following turn I had retreat, a fetch and a Ramunap Excavator netting me 6 landfall triggers and 12 counters in total. Things spiraled out of control pretty quickly. Ofcourse this is a ludicrous situation, but the point is that with Retreat to Kazandu I can generate board presence by actually gaining mana instead of spending it.

Rites of Flourishing could be good as card draw and additional lands

Like Ghost Town, Undiscovered Paradise can ensure you have a landfall trigger every turn
Zendikar's Roil is perfect since it makes elementals
Cloudstone Curio allows you to pick up lands and replay lands as well as good ETB creatures.
