kamarupa: Thanks for the comment!

I am gonna have to look into Time of Need. Initially I was going to say I can't run it because not all the creatures I look for are legendary, and I need to be able to put the creature into play with it. When I think about it more, the vast majority of creatures I try to grab are Legendary, and running 3x Eldritch Evolution MB and 1x SB has actually been too many, so I think I will playtest at least 1x ToN in place of the SB one. The idea there is if I bring in one of the SB creatures, I also bring in the tutor, rather than run 2x of that particular creature in the sideboard.

Funnily enough, I actually playtested a 1x Shalai, Voice of Plenty in the MB today in place of the Pegasus Courser, and a Thalia, Heretic Cathar in place of the Obelisk Spider and was really happy with them both. I think Shalai is definitely going to have a place in the deck, possibly in addition to the Leylines. Thalia I think is just going to be in the MB.

I tried running Slaughter the Strong a long time ago when the deck was just Abzan, but when I switched to 4+ color I stopped running it. I think it is worth revisiting again, especially since it gets in under Gaddock Teeg.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a strict upgrade to Raid Bombardment in here, and I wish I would have caught your comment before I went to FNM because it is a much better fit. I hardly ever lose creatures on my turn anyway, so in that sense they are equal, but the fact that Throne can proc off of tapped Birds of Paradise, and there are a few control decks in my meta that are constantly tapping Doran down, Throne definitely ends up being a better fit. On top of all of that there's no color requirement, and it's 1 mana less and smooths out the deck even more. Great suggestion.

Thanks again for commenting, that gives me a lot to think about!

SynergyBuild: Tetsuko as a one-of has really been valuable in my meta, as there are a lot of aggro and token decks that have a lot cheaper chump blockers than I do. He can sit in the deck as long as I want, and if I ever need him I can Eldritch Evolution him off a Dryad Arbor, Birds of Paradise, Treefolk Harbinger, or even a Bloodbraid Elf if I need, and he immediately has an effect even if I'm not swinging with him. It can often make a 2-turn difference on my swings for lethal, with is huge if I am up against flying creatures or tons of tokens.

Now whether or not he needs to be Mainboarded is a different story. I honestly can't say for sure.

That being said, I agree that I need another Mardu Ascendancy, as having multiple out just makes gets better and better, and I drastically increase the chance to hit one during a draw or Cascade.

Testing out a Dryad Arbor in place of a Verdant Catacombs. I have been considering dropping a fetch for a while, and even after the cut I still technically have 10 ways to fetch, even if they are a little convoluted. What I like is that not only he is a surprise blocker/attacker, he can also be Eldritch Evolutioned into a lot of strong creatures in the MB and SB. He also procs Mardu Ascendancy, and is hit by Tower Defense (when I run it).

All and all, I think it's definitely a card I can work around, and the more targets for Eldritch the better. If I end up liking the Dryad but not the loss of the fetch, I can swap the Dryad for one of the Obelisk Spider instead, which is currently my only flex slot.

Let me know what you think!

Runic Armasaur out for Obelisk Spider. The spider has been an absolute house in playtesting, and I wasn't getting as many procs off of Armasaur to warrant the include out of something more useful in combat. The spider, and an extra Eldritch Evolution, have really allowed me to go toe-to-toe with Humans in my local meta.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems like a card that would fit nicely here. Aegis of the Heavens too. I'm not really sure what else to add. Maybe Eldritch Evolution?

I gotcha, well with that in mind I made a lot of changed from hat I was working on.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/eldritch-ascension-copy/

Here's the list I have right now. I moved to a general Jund control package, but I kept more creatures as you'll need fodder for Eldritch Evolution. Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt stay with Atarka's Command to give you some good grabs with the Pyromancer Ascension which I only put three in as I felt you don't want to get flooded with them as I did in testing. I also added Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip i think he will prove strong in the deck, namely because he will allow us to evo into Kolgahan.
