First of all, your curve is high so you need way more mana acceleration, especially early game.

I'd recommend replacing 2-5 cards with cheap ramp like Rampant Growth, Three Visits, Mind Stone, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach and maybe Skyclave Relic.

Here are some other suggestions:

Camaraderie instead of War Report

Forsaken Monument instead of Golem's Heart

Conjurer's Closet instead of Dragon Mask

Throne of Geth instead of Energy Chamber

Inspiring Call instead of Sporeback Troll

Cathars' Crusade instead of Chief of the Foundry

Trading Post instead of Daring Archaeologist

Loyal Guardian instead of Arcbound Overseer

Kuldotha Forgemaster instead of Arcbound Bruiser

Ancient Stone Idol instead of Pardic Wanderer

Return of the Wildspeaker instead of Compost

Ugin, the Ineffable instead of The Wanderer

Buried Ruin, Dread Statuary, Gavony Township, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, Krosan Verge, Blighted Woodland, Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves, Castle Garenbrig, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip instead of basic lands.

I'm afraid Compost won't work for this deck, as the Walkers are tokens, not cards.

Hi ChibiFate, thank you for the suggestions and questions.

Teferi, Master of Time didn't impress me enough to keep him in the deck. Once I could play him Turn 1 in a four player POD and he was insanely good. But if you draw him after turn four or five, you are better off drawing something like Pull from Tomorrow. The problem is, that it will get very hard to ultimate Teferi, Master of Time once your opponents have some creatures out and just filtering the cards in your hand isn't strong enough as you need extra cards to keep the interaction up as a control player. Hence, I would recommend some other cards that will guarantee you card-advantage in a timely manner without having to wait two to three turns. Therefore the short answer is: in opening hand the card is really broken. After a couple of turns he is "meh" - not really worth the mana.

Compost and Reap are very good cards. The only reason I don't run them is because i rarely play against black. If you are going against one or more black decks you should definitely consider them.

Lithoform Engine is new to me and I never tested it, honestly. However, my first impression is that the card costs too much mana and does not provide enough synergy. If I could copy stuff from my opponents I would consider playing it. However, as this is not the case, I would rather tend to either put Precognition Field back in. But in my case it would make more sense to put Isochron Scepter combo back in as there are many spells I could imprint and copy much cheaper that way.

Oko, Thief of Crowns and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath are really strong cards in this built. But you really need to up Oko, Thief of Crowns first until you get a token. Only after that I would advise to start attacking opponents permanents by taking over their creatures. If you consider to play Oko as a longterm threat and not as an immediate removal spell, then he will be very strong. Otherwise he will die pretty quickly and will not bring you continous advantage. If you have Oko, Thief of Crowns in your opening hand and can drop him on turn two, you will have quite a strong position in the game early on.

Hope these answers help you. If you read through the deck description you will see that this Rashmi deck is somewhat different from most builds and I try to grind especially hard.

You want to play Reap and Compost in this deck 100%

A few questions for a fellow Rashmi Control player. How has Oko, Thief of Crowns peformed for you?

Do you struggle against Niv-Mizzet, Parun?

Would you consider Lithoform Engine without Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal Combo?

How did Teferi, Master of Time perform?

Considered Compost for the maybeboard?

Savage1988, I appreciate your recommendations of what to change in my deck. You may not have seen Compost in the list because I am making little changes all the time. I'm aiming to build my OmRath list as competitively as possible, and that requires maintenance and play-testing!

Khalni Heart Expedition, Devoted Druid, and Summoner's Pact are all great cards for you to use in the list. For these it's important to note that a lot of people don't neglect these cards because they are bad, but choose to use others because they think others are a slightly better fit. For example, because Omnath, Locus of Rage benefits from landfall triggers, it is usually advantageous to prioritize ramp spells over mana dorks like Devoted Druid.

Gruul Turf is a fantastic card, but doesn't make the cut for the same reason other come-into-play-tapped dual lands don't. It is advantageous to have 1) as many double land drops like Fabled Passage as possible and 2) as many basics as possible for Perilous Forays should you draw it. While Gruul Turf is a great include, it is neither of those 2 things and gets cut from competitive lists. It is worth noting that these two conditions are meant to be for mana fixing lands, not those like Reliquary Tower.

Eternal Witness allows you to recur anything from your grave with any of your creature tutor cards: Green Sun's Zenith, Finale of Devastation, or Chord of Calling. This also means you can recur non-creature cards like enchantments with creature tutor cards. It is important to understand that by adding 1 Eternal Witness to the deck, you yield up to 4 outs in the deck should you ever want to recur something from your grave. While it may not always be your choice, it vastly increases your range of options with creature tutor cards.

Hope this helps!

  1. Staples:
  2. Maybe:
    • Protection:
      • Sylvan Safekeeper : Creature protection.
      • Veil of Summer : Counterspell protection. Protection against blue and black removal. Most common cards with removal (although meta dependent).
  3. Cut:

Staple cards are cards I recommend obtaining and using, since they are almost always good cards to have in any green deck. The rest is up to preference and should be taken with a grain of salt. I hope I could be of some use to you.

Neat interaction, hadn’t thought of that. I tend to shy away from infinite combos like this, my playgroup doesn’t really appreciate them, and I don’t mind not playing them. Keeps games a little more interesting i feel. If you’re going for power though, it sounds great!

BenWin

Thanks for the insight. I’ll have to think on it a bit. With regards to what to cut for Into the North: i don’t see Compost in the list? Perhaps a land. 42 seems like a lot, even though it’s the answer to life, the universe and everything. Sensei's Divining Top seems odd too, but i’m sure i’m missing something there.

Do you have an opinion on my Khalni Heart Expedition and Devoted Druid as ramp and Summoner's Pact as tutor? They seemed good to me but i don’t see them around really.
