Nerdytimesorwhatever on Rashmi, Eternities Crafter: Experimental Elves

2 weeks ago

Ahhh okay, apologies for going overboard. I play a cEDH Rashmi list that is significantly different from yours, though there are some topdeck manipulation similarities!

I still think you should run Elvish Mystic , Arbor Elf , Carpet of Flowers (if applicable), Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , and more ways to play Rashmi in the earlier turns in general (like Jeweled Lotus ). My meta has evolved to make it impossible for me to play Rashmi after turn 3, so my lists usually run 15-19 ramp pieces. So take my ramping advice with a grain of salt lol.

I also feel that your interaction suite is a bit light, but thats from the position of someone who runs over 35 interaction spells haha

What does your meta look like, and how does this deck counter it/fit into it?

I think it's actually pretty balanced. Unlike Oko, this guy costs 4 mana and has no immediate impact in the board. Its protection is completely useless against spot removal, and you can't even equip it with Swiftfoot Boots for protection. It's easier to remove than a planeswalker in decks that rely on interaction instead of combat, which are precisely the decks that also run troublesome artifacts and enchantments. It does little good against mana rocks, and it doesn't ramp the owner very well in a worst case scenario of no good targets. It's strongest ability is being able to target enchantments every turn and troublesome stax artifacts. This includes Carpet of Flowers , Rhystic Study , Smothering Tithe , Static Orb , etc. That's where it really shines, but it takes a full turn cycle of surviving to do anything. That is this card's weakest point that makes it much more balanced than Oko. It's not weak, but it's not at Oko's level.

But those are just my thoughts. We have no actual stats for the card's theoretical performance.

Hi Mortlocke! Good to see you've added Carpet of Flowers , not that happy for Mystic Remora , which is a huge card. I was taking a look at your manabase, and I've noticed you're playing filter lands instead of pain lands. Why?

Adarkar Wastes - Underground River - Sulfurous Springs - Karplusan Forest - Brushland - Caves of Koilos - Shivan Reef - Llanowar Wastes - Battlefield Forge - Yavimaya Coast

Filter lands are really suboptimal compared to pain lands: pain lands always give you a color if you need it at the cost of 1 life, which is nothing in EDH. Filter lands might add you colorless if you don't have the right land or mana producer. You can also think about horizon lands since those make you also draw, those are even better.

Horizon Canopy - Silent Clearing - Fiery Islet - Nurturing Peatland - Sunbaked Canyon - Waterlogged Grove

I've also noticed that you're missing Gemstone Caverns : this land is so good when it's in your starting hand, you can be 1 turn ahead of your opponents.

Sorry for the very lengthy reply. I just got swept up in this.

I've only played two games so my experience overall isn't going to tell me enough about how certain cards perform in various situations or if they're not synergizing enough with your strategy. I'm guessing you're on a budget. If your playgroup allows proxies, or money isn't an issue. Gaea's Cradle is always a great option in a deck that generates lots of token creatures, and you're already running Crop Rotation . The budget option to cradle though is Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. When I began my 2nd game playing this deck I was very concerned since one opponent was running Angus Mackenzie which usually just neuters this kind of strategy. I mean I lost that game for other reasons, but if it had dragged on I probably would need a lot of luck to have instant speed removal for Angus and enough power to alpha strike or I'd just lose to forever fog. That's certainly an edge case, but a tad more removal could be helpful to rid yourself of problematic creatures or other effects. Song of the Dryads and Kenrith's Transformation are a couple of great options. The only other creature that doesn't do something like fight that shot to the front of my mind to get around Angus was Questing Beast .

=============

However, simply looking at the list and thinking about good options in general I would say the following cards should be considered for replacement:

  • Colossal Majesty its a bit slow compared to other green card draw. Sylvan Library is probably the best replacement if money is no issue. Beast Whisperer is decent and you can tutor it. There are great one-time effects considering the swarm you usually have like Shamanic Revelation and Regal Force . Harmonize is always a solid option. Oakhame Adversary is usually getting through because of deathtouch and you can always leave him as a blocker. Depending on your meta Runic Armasaur can net you plenty of cards.
  • Liege of the Tangle feels like you'd be better off with something that helps finish the game the turn it enters the battlefield for this much mana. Craterhoof Behemoth or something like that would be nice, but if you're content with the pump that you get from Kamahl then perhaps Bane of Progress would be nice to wipe the pesky artifacts and enchantments. God-Eternal Rhonas is another decent buff to finish with. Great Oak Guardian could potentially be a finisher with your ability to turn lands into creatures and Temur Sabertooth as a way to recast the treefolk again and again.
  • Nylea, Keen-Eyed I feel like she is a decent card, especially since she is indestructible, but her activated ability is pretty costly for only digging 1 card. I would prefer Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip for this kind of effect and if it flips it does the cost reduction. If you're after an indestructible creature here then Rhonas the Indomitable is great for the deathtouch as a blocker or threat, and his pump + trample effect. For other nice cost reducers there's Emerald Medallion and Rhonas's Monument .
  • Curious Herd was a dead card for me in one of my games where I drew it. I ended up discarding it when I ended a turn at 8 cards in hand. I can see that it has potential in some matchups, but its is a bit meta dependent. Arachnogenesis would probably be an upgrade in many cases, but again meta dependant.
  • Magus of the Order I was surprised when I saw this in my hand because I didn't realize it had been printed. 2020 was a blur. However, as it stands there were not a lot of great targets for this to go tutor into play. Avenger, Nyxbloom, of Baloths were the primary options to me since Leige needs to swing and connect in order to do something and wait a turn before the lands can attack giving opponents a chance to wipe your board (including 8/8 lands). Actual Natural Order would be preferable since it is less telegraphed, but still need better finisher, utility, value to tutor for. Craterhoof, Bane of Progress, or maybe something like Apex Devastator for all the silly cascades.
  • Roiling Regrowth -> Harrow (generally won't get countered so the additional cost on cast of sacrificing a land is a minimal risk) or if you want a body Springbloom Druid .
  • Bow of Nylea it certainly has its utility, but something like Ohran Frostfang may be better for the deathtouch buff and supplemental card draw.

Other cards to consider:

Some combo suggestions:

  • Quirion Ranger + Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to use the ranger's ability to return the ranger and untap any other creature that can tap for mana to recast the range and repeat for infinite cast triggers, creature ETB triggers for other permanents that care, and "landfall" triggers. Scryb Ranger can also work if your "lands" produce an additional green or if you have a way to give them haste like Lightning Greaves or Concordant Crossroads .
  • Cloudstone Curio + Kodama of the East Tree to put a land into play, bounce another land, resolve Kodama trigger to put that land back into play and bounce the first land for as many additional lands you can play per turn. This becomes infinite if you have a permanent that generates any kind of token on landfall trigger.

Hi Mortlocke,

I think Carpet of Flowers is a good card, and I genuinely have thought about getting one myself. Free mana, that forces your opponent into tight and awkward situations, I am good with that. In my meta, people do play Islands etc, however, just havent had chance to get out and try it out. You will have to let me know how you get on with it

Hey The_Munchkin, thanks for reaching out. I'm doing pretty good all things considered. My family and I recently moved to Germany and are still getting accustomed to all the changes. My opinion of the bondlands? They're amazing lands that are either on par with Shocklands, or maybe one slight tier behind them (think a "B" as compared to a "B-" in terms of grade or rank). What holds them back is that they're not typed, and there are definitely scenarios where they would always enter tapped. But despite these drawbacks they're amazing lands that I plan to own a playset of. Would I consider replacing the filterlands in the deck for bondlands? No. Let me explain, Most of the time when I play this deck it's 1v1. I have a friend who runs a cEDH Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, and we absolutely enjoy playing with power. Obviously the bondlands would be a significant step down for me if I were to replace them with the given context. However, in decks where i'm almost always going to be in multiplayer (typically online) I'm absolutely using bondlands. So really it all boils down to meta. If this deck were to start seeing more multiplayer then i'd definitely revisit the filterlands.

Hey Doombeard1984, always good to hear from you. I just decided to give one of the OG cEDH "power" cards a try - Carpet of Flowers. The deck I usually end up playing against is 5c, and regularly plays islands. Worst case scenario I can force my opponent to make suboptimal plays by tutoring for "non-islands" - if they can't help it. That's the theory anyway. What're your thoughts on the change? (also I swapped in Wooded Bastion in for Mystic Gate to balance out the mana, but that's not as significant of a change).

Maybe Genesis Hermit Druid

With Eternal Witness + Genesis + a sac outlet you could play the eternal witness, on somebody's endstep sac the ewit then on your upkeep bring it back with genesis, bring back your removal spells, sac the ewit again then play it with Karados ability to bring back another card

Also I would add Toxic Deluge and maybe Carpet of Flowers if you play against a lot of blue in your playgroup

Id drop a couple lands and add Mystic Remora and Carpet of Flowers. I also think you should get more counterspells since you will be drawing your opponents into more spells. Finally, i think some of your creatures ought to be put to a cheaper card that is either a hatebear like Collector Ouphe or Hullbreacher, or to 1 drop mana producing elves to ramp you into your spells. Getting your average cmc closer to 2 will be a massive improvement vs cEDH decks.
