Eldritch Evolution


As an additional cost to cast Eldritch Evolution, sacrifice a creature.

Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost X or less, where X is 2 plus the sacrificed creature's converted mana cost. Put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. Exile Eldritch Evolution.

Have you considered using cards that can cheat your combo pieces into the game? Finale of Devastation , Eldritch Evolution and even Birthing Pod might be worth trying. Worldly Tutor too.

You might also want to use the CMDR tag on your Oathbreaker and Signature Spell so people can easily see them.

Papaglock21 We're leaning in harder on Freed lines because another avenue outside of Scepter is objectively a good thing, and there aren't really any dead cards with it outside of Freed from the Real itself. With the dox ban, this is a fine alternative to making the deck modular by having these options available if something goes awry with plan A. Now, instead of just Bloom Tender and Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl on a Forest, we have Incubation Druid as another target for Freed and it's important to note here that both Tender and Druid are tutorable and online via Neoform .

Valaj The redundancy Eldritch Evolution has with Neoform is not super necessary here. it is objectively worse and is only really effective if we want to grab Nezahal. It doesn't turn Incubation Druid on like Neoform does and that's a very relevant feature. If we were on Razaketh, then it would be warranted, but we're not and I don't think we want to be.

I just saw a list on the front page randomly that I think had some cool stuff. I saw Eldritch Evolution which seemed really nice. Triggers your undying stuff and finds you yawgmoth. Seems like a good include. I saw you made a lot of changes to the deck since I last saw it. how has gluttonous slug and hangarback walker been working out? any reason not to run Pelt Collector over slug, or is menace doing a lot for the deck?

-Fulcrum on Ghave that Bitch a Combo

enpc I like Eldritch Evolution but not in this deck. There's a pretty big disparity in my creatures CMCs. Like, a bunch of dorks and then the big mana combo pieces with nothing in between. I could turn Ghave into ProHulk, but if that's the only thing I can do with EE then it's an 8 mana investment and that just doesn't seem good to me. Honestly, it feels like there are a lot of things that this deck just doesn't do good enough anymore, and I have been thinking of retiring this deck and going 4C like you mentioned.

I think what's most likely going to happen is I'm going to tune this deck down into turn 5-7 combo deck that's more for fun and then build something new for cEDH stuff.

And thanks for the Three Visits rec, I totally forgot about that one.

I totally forgot about Imperial Seal . Yeah, add that one.

I know what you mean about being able to deploy a combo entirely from a single Hulk use, however for that, the best deck you can use is is 4C Shuffle Hulk. And since any single target graveyard removal (e.g. Cremate ) will still shut your combo down since there's not a response line while triggers are on the stack. Though it is easier than having to search your library twice (with the Karmic Guide line).

I think oyu should get some value with mentor, you have quite a high creature count and a lot of them are dorks. but it will be interesting to get your feedback on it after re-adding it. I tihkn that if you had to pick, finale is better than GSZ. I still like GSZ as a card and since my deck doesn't have black in it, it's a no brainer include. But for you, while hitting Hulk is a priority, it can be quite expensive. I think that it would still do work here, even if it was just getting Priest of Titania but if you don't miss it then it's no a thing.

As for graveyard enablers, Fauna Shaman is the only other one that comes to mind immediately. Also, what're your thoughts on Eldritch Evolution ? it lets you turn Ghave into Hulk.

Lastly, if you're going infinite budget, I think Wood Elves should be Three Visits . Cheaper spell is cheaper.

TypicalTimmy on New Hub: Tutorless

4 weeks ago

KongMing brings an interesting point that I'm not sure has been established: "Almost any fetch land (...)"

I know I am taking this out of context, but there are a ton of cards that tutor without exactly being thought of as a "tutor".

Most of us think of Vampiric Tutor , Diabolic Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , & Mystical Tutor . But these aren't the only kinds.

Lands are also tutors. Literally all Fetch lands, including Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse , not to mention cards that search for lands such as Expedition Map , Sylvan Scrying , Tempt with Discovery , Reap and Sow , etc.

Then, of course, there are artifact tutors: Fabricate , Tinker , Reshape , Artificer's Intuition , etc.

We even have creature tutors: Sylvan Tutor , Signal the Clans , Worldly Tutor , Eldritch Evolution , etc.

Heck, we even have Planar Bridge which is just an all-around basic tutor engine.

Then we get into Planeswalkers such as Nahiri, the Harbinger , Samut, the Tested , Garruk, Caller of Beasts , Tezzeret the Seeker , Sarkhan, Dragonsoul , Sarkhan Unbroken , and Liliana Vess to name a decent portion of them.

So "tutors" seem to be a lot more expansive than just the basic 1 - 4 CMC black sorcerys we are use to thinking of. To ask for an "archetype" that has none of these as well as the vast swath of unmentioned cards is actually kind of backbreaking to build. You purposely have to go out of your way to not at least consider some type of card in some kind of color(s) to assist you with. At that point, you're really building more of a challenge deck to test your skill as a deck builder, such as a "one-word tribal" or "goofy hats matter" deck.

It can be done. I'm sure there are tons and tons of decks out there that don't have a single tutor in them, but at the same time those are probably going to be mono-colored decks that have some sort of serious draw potential or so much duplication in terms of cards they select that they don't really NEED to find anything because it's probably going to be right there on top. Decks like this include: Aristocrats, Burn, Ramp, & Zoo.

At least, that's my thoughts on the matter. Either way, it's a good discussion to have as it helps set the tone on how to explore other hub ideas in the future :)
