"Rashmi , Eternities Crafter: Creating possibilities."

"Rashmi , Eternities Crafter: Creating possibilities."
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. MD

There was something that I liked instantly about Rashmi , Eternities Crafter the moment I saw her. It was the possibilities that she brought to the battlefield. 

The 4 mana elf druid let's you cast a spell for free or draw a card. Plain and simple when she is on the battlefield you get advantage over your opponents so this is how she works.Whenever you cast your first spell each turn , reveal the top card of your library. If it's a non land card with converted mana cost less than the spells cost you may cast it without paying its mana cost. If you don't cast the revealed card , put it into your hand.

The potential for this is just really exciting. Imagine casting something like a Verdurous gearhulk(5 mana) on your turn and you look at the top of your library to reveal a 4 mana cost spell or less like a Kiora or Jace. Then you cast it for free! And even if you can't cast the spell since it cost more than the initial spell you cast you get to keep it so that you could cast it later.

The abundance of 4 or 3 mana cost counters or even other instants with the same costs even allows you to trigger Rashmi , Eternities Crafter on your opponents turn and you get to cast a spell that you might not have. Imagine getting a creature or planeswalker on the battlefield at instant speed by casting a Torrential Gearhulk on your opponents turn.

The interaction gets even better(for you) when you get to cast any of the Expertise spells. So a Baral's expertise in this case allows you to cast a 4 mana spell from your hand and 4 mana or less costing card from the top of your library. Insane!

In a recent game where I was playing with my Sultai superfriends deck and Rashmi , Eternities Crafter was in play ,My Disallow on my opponents turned turned into a Inquisition of Kozilek that allowed me to get rid of an opponents card. Even sorceries gain instant speed! 

I guess I have to brew a Rashmi , Eternities Crafter deck sooner or later. Time to look up the pieces.
