Vizier of the Menagerie Discussion

my problem with Shadowed Caravel is it doesnt trigger Path of Discovery, it doesnt work with Enter the Unknown if I cant crew it (or any other spell), I can't cast it from deck with Vizier of the Menagerie, and it won't trigger Rhonas's Monument nor have reduced cost. Yes it can grow and essentially turn a 2/1 explorer into an X/X but I feel like it doesn't synergize with anything else and I'd rather get the value from having an actual creature.
I did some play testing with Animation Module and I don't think it does anything better than Vizier of the Menagerie. Vizier is "card draw" and can work independently. Animation requires Path of Discovery and explore creatures to function. You can run out of explore dorks and then animation is dead on board. Animation is also a dead draw late game if you already have one on board. I'd rather have a couple extra slots in the deck for creatures and I believe Vizier does the same thing with less set up. However, Animation has insane value if everything is set up properly and could be a really fun deck if it was consistent.

@Thorbogl thanks for your comment!
I do own one copy of Snapcaster Mage but it currently resides in another deck. I would be stoked to eventually pick up a second to drop in this list ;)
In the beginning I was considering going the reveal-my-topdeck route with cards like Oracle of Mul Daya, Future Sight, Courser of Kruphix, and maybe even Garruk's Horde. I kind of like to keep my opponents guessing so I decided against the idea. Oracle of Mul Daya is really freakin' good and my friends have suggested it as well. I'm hoping I have enough top deck manipulation with Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile to make rashmi run smoothly. I do run Vizier of the Menagerie in my animar deck which is almost 50% creatures haha

Leon9358, this is definitely a different tactic than my build with Rashmi, Rashmi's Foggy Summonings. I did a couple quick games against each other, and yours won consistently thanks to River's Rebuke.
I feel like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter isn't really being used to her fullest potential here, although paired with a late game Nissa, Steward of Elements or River's Rebuke she can generate some good value. You have zero instants, so you can never take advantage of her ability on your opponent's turn. I would consider dropping a pair of Kefnet's Last Word and putting in an instant-spped card draw like Glimmer of Genius or Hieroglyphic Illumination to help you dig for your Rashmi or other finishers.
Similar to Rashmi, you are only taking advantage of half of Majestic Myriarch's abilities as none of your creatures have any keywords. Emperor's Vanguard is easily my first choice to cut. Dreamcaller Siren would be a good swap since flying will benefit your Myriarch, and flash will also enable Rashmi. You might instead consider swapping in a pair of Dreamcaller Sirens in place of a pair of River's Rebuke to lower your average CMC. Ramunap Hydra is another option to replace the Vanguard, as it come loaded with a bunch of keywords. Siren Stormtamer is another option to give you the flying keyword, while also protecting you and your creatures from some removal. Vizier of the Menagerie could also be a good idea in this deck since you are running so many creatures; the Vizier also pairs with Rashmi and Nissa very nicely.

Snapcaster Mage seems like it would fit perfectly.
Also Oracle of Mul Daya, allowing you to just play lands from top and aswell letting you know the top card's cmc for rashmi trigger.I think Vizier of the Menagerie does a better job by not revealing the top card, but I guess you do not run enough creatures so oracle it is I would recommend.

saw your deck and since I am a huge fan of Selesnya colors I had to take a look.
I am an EDH fan playing these colors, so did you consider these cards already:
- Eladamri's Call
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking
- Aura Shards
- Mesa Enchantress
- Vizier of the Menagerie
- Oracle of Mul Daya
- Lotus Cobra
- Wood Elves
I play a Sisay deck, that is truely powerful and fun to play. If you are interested to play some extra ramp spells, then check my deck. It has a seperarte ramp list, which has some nice targets for you too if interested.
Hope I could have been of help for you.
Best wishes for 2018!
