Thousand-Year Elixir Discussion
3 days ago
Primal command first to shuffle graveyard into deck, then cast and crack memory jar to draw 7. Cast whatever you draw or pitch your hand by saccing a birds of paradise to greater good repeatedly. Use Ewit to rebuy primal command. Repeat. Each time, you will empty your hand and shuffle it back in so your library never shrinks but your opponent will end up with more cards in face-down exile. Just to be clear you almost never actually need to use this, as chances are you can just beast within all permanents or somberwald stag + primal command away all permanents.

Paradox Engine or Thousand-Year Elixir could be considerations. I am a little worried that you don't have enough card draw. What you do have like gateway is filtering but i'd try to add some that net you cards in hand.

I enjoy the mechanics of your deck. I have made a very similar one myself, and have tested out some of the cards you play, and found them wanting. However, that depends always depends on the playgroup IMO.
Viridian Longbow - While this card seems good on paper with rhonas, it has never given me any real value. As rhonas needs to be first equipped and then tapped to do the shooting, -ideally this means that you have a turn 3 creature shooter where you have spent all ressources up till that point to be able to shoot 1 creature at a time, with everything tapped and nothing to block.
Lifecrafter's Bestiary - I have only ever tried this card out in my Karametra deck, but in that extremely creature heavy deck, it was underwhelming, to say the least. What is your experience with that card?
Berserk - You addressed this card earlier, and i will say that my experience with it is highly positive. (I play Pathbreaker Ibex as well) With all the draw spells based on creature power, it turns "the Rhonas 5 card draw" into 10 card draw. (Greater Good, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall, Garruk, Primal Hunter) Further more, you can slap it on one of the big creatures like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, or Terastodon and almost insta kill anyone with leftover HP at that point.
Norwood Priestess - Found the Elvish Piper equivalent simply too slow for my taste, I have played around 5-7 games with that dude out, and it has never yielded me anything good. With the amount of ramp cards you play, i would say that this girl could be cut for something more usefull, but ofc, that depends on your own experience as well.
Cards, you might wanna consider:First two, you have already considered and found wanting Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth. I have tested these cards, and they are overwhelmingly good. Theyre harder to remove than mana dorks, and they provide infinite mana easily with Earthcraft and Cloudstone Curio. Plus you know, they make the Arbor Elf extremely much better.
Temur Sabertooth This dude is underated IMO. While he provides another bounce effect, the protection of your key creatures is legit and should be a higher priority i think. With some of the mana doublers in play, he also goes infinite. And he has the added benefit of activating your Rhonas for a measly 4 mana.
Rings of Brighthearth - While Rhonas himself has an activated ability, it is not said ability yo usually wanna copy. Fetchlands turn into 2 lands instead of one, Thousand-Year Elixir Wirewood Symbiote Quirion Ranger untaps Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or the like twice. Garruk, Primal Hunter Throws out two dudes, or draws 10 cards. Plus if you insist on running your Longbow shooter, there you go -> boom boom.Aaaand you know, Deserted Temple plus any high producing land (also insert Overgrowth right here) = infinite = kill = win
Homeward Path - I have found, that while having an indestructable commander is all well and good, the worst thing that can happen to this deck is that someone else steals the fucker. In your deck you only have your big eldrazi girl, to get him back (i.e. to command zone then recast]. But it depends on the playgroup i think. In any case it is tutorable with any of your land tutors.
Surrak, the Hunt Caller Another haste enabler, which i have found myself tutoring for loads of times to enable combos. He activates Rhonas, and Rhonas in turn activates his haste ability. also. throw out 10 dmg turn 3 is always good for pressurering controldecks.
Yavimaya Hollow I love this land, as I will often see players trying to mess with the key mana producers. It is a solid card, and will give you a bit more resilience.
Elvish Archdruid I know that you have at some point considered this card. And let me tell you, consider it until you put it in. Do not think of anything else, just do it. Fulfill your dreams and do it. It is cheaper than the Channeler, and provides another easy way to win the game.
In all I liked your take on Rhonas, and it look very very much like my own. I have played it in 1on1 Commander and consistently take wins away from aggro and control. The only deck that has the number on Rhonas is Queen Marchesa control. That burns all lower creatures, and sacs Rhonas in a neverending cycle of dominion over our green dorks. Which makes this deck entirely too slow without the added benefit of small dudes.
You have received an upvote from me. Good Job.

Tap lands like Dismal Backwater or Jwar Isle Refuge can go. Here's some lands you don't have listed that are good in my opinion Sunken Hollow, Watery Grave, Tainted Isle, Sunken Ruins and Ash Barrens.
Dreamborn Muse, Riddlekeeper, Oblivion Sower can be good if you're exiling stuff, Manic Scribe, Crypt Ghast, Mortivore maybe?, Guiltfeeder, Nighthowler, Eater of the Dead, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Thousand-Year Elixir, Wight of Precinct Six, Consecrated Sphinx, Arcane Denial, Mirage Mirror can be secretly good, Stolen Goods, Praetor's Grasp and Dream Fracture.
I feel like the defender route can be... alright but with dimir you might as well just have good useful creatures that so happen to have decent toughness... also I feel like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Oona, Queen of the Fae, Thunder Wall, Wall of Spears, Reinforced Bulwark, and Psychic Membrane are either don't fit or you can find something better.

This deck looks pretty gruesome; nice work. Might I suggest adding Instill Energy and/or Nature's Chosen? Takes less mana to summon and are cheaper to use than for instance Thousand-Year Elixir. I would also consider Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker; seems to be very much in theme with your deck.
