Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
 
Regardless of which pieces of Magic's flavor text you do and don't like, there's no doubt that a surprisingly large proportion of the time, they throw phrases out there that just work. Personally, I'd say that there are few job titles that sound cooler than "Eternities Crafter" - "Blimpwright" is up there, but there's nothing like a name that makes a mundane (for its setting) task seem suitably exciting and even miraculous. As for her ability, we already know what this kind of effect can do - the card Future Sight and the entire cascade ability have shown us that there's almost no way to cost a free spell effect to make it useless. While it's balanced somewhat by the fact that you only get one at once and can't dig into your library like with cascade, blue and green excel at manipulating the top card of their library; and as a result, I think Rashmi is going to be a massive draw for Kaladesh, especially for players of Commander.

Rashmi, Eternities Lifecrafter (10/10)
 
The concept behind Rashmi is really powerful: it’s a limited version of Cascade that can trigger a free and powerful spell to go with the first spell of your turn. Keep in mind that the second spell will resolve first, so that can make for some interesting decisions.
 
Her power is there, but the body is concerning. A 2/3 for 4 mana is pretty awkwardly fragile, especially when you lack ways to protect her. She’s in burn range for most of the relevant burn spells of Standard (much less Modern), and that's to say nothing of kill spells. She's also completely without impact during the turn she hits, and an instant-speed kill spell will leave you out four mana and a creature.
 
She needs to be protected, but she’s very powerful, to say the least. Use her with caution.
