- Do creatures that ETB with +1/+1 counters count as having increased power and toughness for the use of Evolve?

FlyingEvolve (Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature has greater power or toughness than this creature, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.)

Cloudfin Raptor Discussion
2 days ago
I built a really budget mono flier deck in standard way back. It was really straight forward and put out a lot of pressure. It used mostly one and two costed creatures like Cloudfin Raptor, and Vaporkin to spew out a bunch of fliers, with the goal being that they at least needed to have power equal to the cost paid. I don't have it listed up here, but you could totally do something like that. If you went that route one card I would suggest especially is Pride of the Clouds (unfortunately I did not have access to this beast in standard). Good luck on finding something you love.

Afraid this deck won't work that well in reality, there are much better choices even on a budget.
Deviod means that Eldrazi Skyspawner and Mist Intruder aren't blue, they are colourless.
Skywatcher Adept will never be relevant and costs too much to level up, a better option is Cloudfin Raptor which grows just because you play other creatures.
Faerie Miscreant is a functionally better Zephyr Sprite thanks to the occasional draw.
Swap Mist Intruder to be Seacoast Drake, it has an extra 1 toughness and is blue.
In short, while I like the idea of an all flying blue deck, your card choices just weren't optimal, even on a budget.

No. Graft is a triggered ability that uses the stack, so the second Cloudfin Raptor enters as a 0/1. Evolve means is "Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature's power is greater than this creatures power and/or that creature's toughness is greater than this creatures toughness, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature." Because that includes an intervening if clause, the new creature has to have greater power or toughness both when it enters to trigger the ability and when the ability resolves for the counter to be added.

No. Evolve uses what's called an intervening "if" clause, which means the ability only triggers if the condition is true at the time of the trigger event and the ability only takes effect if the condition is also true at the time the ability resolves.
Because the second Cloudfin Raptor enters as a 0/1, the first one's ability never even triggers.

Pretend i have a Cloudfin Raptor with one +1/1 counter on it and a Leech Bonder on the battlefield. If I played a second Cloudfin Raptor and used the Leech Bonder to move the +1/1 counter from the first onto the second would the first cloudfin raptor evolve and get a new counter on it?

With the addition of Greenbelt Rampager i would say it may be worth dropping the dreadge creatures and go looting instead and adding in things like Experiment One, Cloudfin Raptor and Grim Flayer instead, as you currently only have one creature you can CAST from your graveyard to activate Vengevine. Although this may make this a little less explosive. I feel it would make it much more consistent. And Greenbelt Rampager is an exelent addion as you can play twice to cast vines and/pump experiment one twice and then discard in to troll :)
