Is it possible to build a decent deck around Rith the Awakener, or is she just another overcosted beat stick that's way past her prime? I've been attempting to build her for months now but I think I need a completely objective opinion on this matter.
Rith’s token production requires that you jump through a lot of hoops. You have to wait a turn to get your tokens (unless you have a haste granter, in which case you’re on the hook for at least 9 mana between her casting cost and triggered ability) and how many you get is dependent on the board state.
Overall, she compares unfavorably with the other token Commanders in Naya. Hazezon Tamar makes lots of tokens without having to connect and commit additional mana, while Gahiji is a cheap anthem that discourages people from attacking you.
If you’re less interested in tokens and are just looking for a Naya-colored beatstick, then Samut and Uril are both promising Voltron commanders. And of course, there are lots of Commanders that are better than Rith if you’re willing to look outside her color identity.
