Growing Rites of Itlimoc Discussion

Hey there and thank you so so much for your detailed comment and amazing suggestions,really do appreciate it. I have a devotion thing going on since I will be putting Serra's Sanctum in so I have a lot of removal in the form of enchantments that exile and sit on board to help with that. I really do like Wheel of Sun and Moon and Greater Auramancy they are both cards I plan on buying but I try to shop local to give my LGS's the business and noone has had either sadly. I am definitely going to put Nature's Revolt in with a combo piece, seems like a really great finished.

Grubbernaut "A better question is: with artifacts already so incredibly strong, why would they ever consider offering them something that does the thing they already do best (fast mana) even better? What does the game stand to gain?"
Well that's easy to answer, lots of cards are printed whose only function is: "hey, remember this broken old card that was really good in other formats in the past? Wanna play with it again?" Like Prime Speaker Vannifar is referring to Birthing Pod , Gilded Goose being a warped Birds of Paradise , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip as Gaea's Cradle , every Magus of the XXX ever, etc.

I've also built a Sythis deck, and while you seem to be taking more of a creature-based approach, I took a more stax-based approach. My list is here: [EDH] Sythis Enchantress
All in all, it seems reletively solid for a creature-based deck. However, I do think you need more enchantments. I don't know if you have a budget or not, but things like Greater Auramancy , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Luminarch Ascension , Carpet of Flowers , and Concordant Crossroads are all cheap CMC enchantments that put in work in my list. I'd also advise adding in more protection, such as Veil of Summer and Autumn's Veil , as that can help protect you against counterspells and spot removal.
I'd recommend cutting Castle Garenbrig , as this is a multi-colored deck and you only have four creatures with activated abilities costing mana. I'd also advise trying to trim down your CMC, as you probably want to be drawing as many cards as possible per turn. You don't necessarily need things like Starfield of Nyx or Privileged Position , or even things like Mirari's Wake in my opinion.
I will say though, I am a bit of a hypocrite because the main wincon in my deck is fairly expensive. I use Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite paired with Nature's Revolt to kill everyone's lands or Linvala, Keeper of Silence paired with Nature's Revolt to prevent anyone from using their lands to tap for mana.

As someone who is very cool on this set (and on crossovers in general) despite being a massive D&D nerd (I don't like my flavors mixing!), I am only truly excited by 2 cards:
Trelissara: Be still my Soul Sisters heart. I'm not going to build it, as I already have Oloro to scratch that itch, but she is very interesting as she provides such card selection! She's going to be a powerhouse uncommon build-around for sure (in the vein of Siona and Syr Konrad), and she could be built very budget (many builds I see mention +1/+1 counter magnification like Hardened Scales , but from someone who plays Soul Sisters in both Modern and EDH, the deck does NOT need the help if you don't want to swing it).

I've been playing elves for some time in both commander and modern, so I was excited to see Lathril spoiled. If I didn't already have a tricked out Ezuri, Renegade Leader deck I'd definitely be building this, because the only thing better than playing mono-green elves is playing green-black elves! I am a bit surprised that you are missing some elf staples such as Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Wood Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Farhaven Elf , and Springbloom Druid . These cards may seem boring, but they give you incredible acceleration, and you can also definitely justify dropping your land count a bit because they'll ramp you early and grab your lands for you from your deck. You also really don't need any of the mana rocks other than Sol Ring , they don't synergize with elves' game plan. I'd also heartily recommend Elvish Guidance , and an often-overlooked card that turns one of your existing lands into a Gaea's Cradle but which costs less than a dollar in real-world money. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip does this as well, but it is more well-known and more expensive. For board wipes I'd recommend Kindred Dominance , which blows everyone else's stuff away while leaving yours intact, and Ezuri's Predation , which was recently re-printed and is now pretty cheap to pick up, as it will likewise leave your elves intact while giving you a bunch of tokens and destroying most of your opponent's stuff. I'd also commend your inclusion of the fabulous new card Haunting Voyage . This card is sheer gold for tribal decks in black!

I really like this. I’ve always wanted to build Ezuri. I’d recommend Song of the Dryads , over Frogify . The card compliments Imprisoned in the Moon with difficult-to-shake, Oko-esque’removal. Castle Garenbrig would provide good acceleration here. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip as well (or Cradle :)). It also replaces itself. Simic does well with a little bit of land acceleration. Try Growth Spiral and Bond. They provide great utility and land acceleration. It’s tough to make spots for these, but they are really quite good (and satisfying to play). Always include Kiora's Follower in Simic! It’s an amazing utility card. Great deck. I bet it’s fun to play.

I like a lot of the includes you have in the deck. I have my own Rhyss deck that I keep trying to push the power level on. I don't think it's quite cEDH level due to our meta having a significant amount of board sweeps. I've built my version to focus on achieving critical mass at instant speed as often as possible and to better withstand board sweeps. Have you thought of running Natural Order to combo with Regal Force (because card draw isn't great in green/white)? It can also get you Craterhoof Behemoth as a win-con. Since you are already running Cradle, what about also running Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip? Also, you may want Petrified Field as cradle insurance (I don't have a cradle yet). I've also been playtesting Eldritch Evolution because it will fetch Priest with a token or Archdruid with a mana dork. Seems to be working out well in my build.
Hope the feedback helps.
