This shiny bastard really broke the bank for me, but Rashmi always does her best to repay me with sweet sweet value. Designed to bring balance to the color pie within my own collection of EDH decks, this deck began with aspirations of Elf tribal. The strategy revolved around using untappers and flash enablers in conjunction with the many dorks that populate that tribe to do big splashy things on other people's turns. My only other green deck at the time was my Dune-themed Naya Deck, Hazezon Muad'dib: Dune-Inspired EDH, which has fairly strict flavor constraints attached to it, so I was excited about trying to put some big fatties out on the board. After goldfishing some early builds, however, it became clear that Rashmi was much more useful at building incremental value (plus I remembered how much fatties suck in EDH). I chopped down the mean CMC, added more instant-speed interaction, and the beginnings of this version was born.

This deck wants to play at instant speed wherever possible. Flash enablers like Alchemist's Refuge , Leyline of Anticipation , and Vedalken Orrery are king in this deck, as they turn incremental card advantage into an absolute waterfall of draw. Topdeck visibility and manipulation are also incredibly valuable once Rashmi's on the field, and Future Sight often feels like the best card in this deck. Deadeye Navigator and Palinchron really shine here (especially with Future Sight in play!) and are instrumental to the few hard locks available (counter everything with Mystic Snake / Frilled Mystic or Capsize everything with infinite mana), but mostly this deck just wants to control the major threats and outpace opponents in the midgame. As the deck's name hints, I still have a lot to learn about playing control, but in the right hands this is probably my most competitive deck. It takes patience on the part of myself (and my opponents) to play her, so it's not the go-to, but when this deck get's humming, it's a beautiful thing to behold.
