Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree Discussion

I'd definitely drop the Wildfield Borderpost and both Ordeals. An easy one to slot in for the Post is Darksteel Ingot. What I see that worries me most is the lack of removal. Two really good ones are Selesnya Charm and Sylvan Reclamation (easy budget picks, too). Also, might I suggest Oath of Nissa as it's likely dropped in price since rotating, and it plays well with the enchantment theme. Get Mosswort Bridge, Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree, Stirring Wildwood and Canopy Vista as well if you can.

Overall, I like it! It's similar to my Trostani's Enchanted Tokens deck, but going tall instead of wide.

Rzepkanut Awesome suggestions! Thanks man those are all great. Gonna check out your decklist and make some changes, I'm pretty sure I own most of them.

tnt_nathan Good call on Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree. After thinking on it I don't think I've ever used the ability. Yeah Concordant Crossroads is on my list of cards to add. I'll throw a Paradox Engine in the place of Descendants' Path since Lurking Predators is just better. I'm trying to find a place for that card, I love the art.

Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree, it is slow for the cost and doesn't end up doing very much for your game plan of casting a large amount of elves and winning. You may also want to add Concordant Crossroads, it gives your creatures haste allowing you to attack with them after going off, it also allows your mana dorks to tap for mana while you're going off. I would suggest cutting Descendants' Path It is slow and has roughly a 30% chance to hit a creature.

Looks like a fun deck, Rafiq is great and can be very powerful!
Saw your deck on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them you like and are in your budget. Cheers!
Lands: cut Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and some of your ETB tapped lands for some etb untapped multicolor lands to help your color production be reliable: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, City of Brass, Breeding Pool.
ramp: Sol Ring, Simic Signet,Azorius Signet, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach.
Wrath of God > Terminus.
Rout > Martial Coup.
Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift.
Eternal Witness, Seasons Past, Mystical Tutor, Archaeomancer.
card draw:
Recurring Insight, Fact or Fiction, Stroke of Genius.
things to help Rafiq of the Many crush your enemies:
Rancor, Inquisitor's Flail, Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, maybe Command Beacon, Sword of Vengeance, maybe Sigarda's Aid.
given how many creatures creatures you run, you might want some tricks to protect your board from boardwipes. Bastion Protector, Make a Stand, Dauntless Escort may or may not be useful.
anyway those are just the things i thought of. I built a rafiq deck a while ago, you should be able to find it in my profile if you want any more suggestions, i went a little bit more in on the pillowfort/control/combo side of things but the list was a bit pricier too. anyway have fun and keep crushing!

I think maybe the whole set lists for MM3 and PCA aren't up yet?

I could not add the following cards:Felidar Umbra (PCA), Graceful Reprieve (MM3), Preyseizer Dragon (PCA), Sever the Bloodline (MM3), Thunder-Thrash Elder (PCA), Ulvenwald Tracker (MM3), Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree (PCA), Wall of Denial (MM3)

bushido_man96 Smokestack is a great card! It's really good with tokens, and i hadn't even though of using Rancor with it. Very clever!

Grave Pact is a little out of price range. though i did try to add all the effects i could run with it, maybe i could also run Custodi Lich as another of that effect. Any thoughts?

TheDoctor_Y2K More goats more better right? I'm not sure i run enough artifacts to fully utilize Trading Post. Although the post does do have a lot of options, which is good. This is my first time running Springjack Pasture, do you run it? If so how often are you sac'ing goats to get mana? I was mostly considering it a colorless Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree.
