Evolutionary Leap Discussion

lagotripha thank you very much for the considerations. I very much like the Evolutionary Leap suggestion. And sage advice to keep my eye on the value engines. I’ll be sure to keep it in mind as it evolves. Thanks again!

It looks interesting. I'd give some consideration to Evolutionary Leap. Secondarily, some cards like Insolent Neonate or Cryptbreaker to provide alternative discard to lotleth will help- Gravecrawler also has some interesting options.

Just, think through your card value engines and look for ways to consistantly generate card advantage.

Fleshbag Marauder is redundancy for Merciless Executioner. I think you get rid of the "discard a card, or x player discards two cards for larger self mill effects. Dredge cards are realllyyyyy good here Stinkweed Imp. Fetch lands are also super awesome in this kind of deck. I know the regular fetches are super expensive, so check out the "Mirage Fetchlands" https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Fetch_land

Since you mentioned needing draw, I can recommend all of these dumb things Green does:

-Shamanic Revelation, since you seem to have a lot of creatures. Collective Unconscious is a worse version of this.

-Evolutionary Leap, while technically not draw, makes it so your creatures can't be exiled and it basically draws you into something good (good insurance for wipes that Shalai doesn't protect against or for Shalai herself). Fecundity is in the same vein as this, but it's a symmetrical effect, so watch out.

-Garruk, Primal Hunter's draw cards ability really likes that you have big angels.

-Garruk's Packleader and its enchantment counterpart Elemental Bond also like that you have big angels.

I also second Greater Good for the same reason as Evolutionary Leap, and second Abundance. Abundance in particular is really dumb in my Tishana deck.

Last thing I'd suggest is Temur Sabertooth, but that's because I suggest him in basically any deck running green. Lets you reuse ETBs with cards like Eternal Witness and Luminate Primordial if you wind up running him. Also protects Shalai and basically says "**** the command tax."

So many cards that would fit this deck. But Evolutionary Leap could be really good, and a single copy of Ojutai's Command would also give you more options.

Are you sure Eldrazi Displacer is a 4-of? Not because it isn't good, since it's a perfect fit on theme, but since the second copy you find is redundant. Maybe a copy of Tracker's Instincts instead of one of them, so you can find the cards you want to play (that one is even card advantage, when you get to use the flashback).

Restoration Angel isn't as pricey as it used to be, so maybe that's something. It would be good for this deck to have something with more than 3 toughness/Lightning Bolt immunity.

I think:

Sandwurm Convergence -> Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar because Multani is an elemental and lets you get more land drops with his second ability.

Oran-Rief Hydra -> Rampaging Baloths because creating 4/4 dudes per land throws more power on the board than boosting one dude by 1 or 2.

Akoum Hellkite -> Embodiment of Insight because it's an elemental that makes your lands elementals; more fodder for Omnath.

Scute Mob -> Fires of Yavimaya because you need haste, not a random dude that doesn't really do anything.

Yavimaya Elder -> Incandescent Soulstoke because it's an elemental anthem that also lets you cheat in elementals at instant speed that then bolt with Omnath.

Abundance -> Skullmulcher because you need to draw more cards, and Abundance doesn't actually net you cards.

Omnath, Locus of Mana -> Sylvan Safekeeper because you want to be using your mana, not saving it, and Safekeeper can protect Omnath from spot removal.

Westvale Abbey  Flip -> Stomping Ground because Westvale Abbey is illegal in your deck because Ormendahl is a black card. It sucks, but it's the same reason why I can't put Archangel Avacyn  Flip in my Karametra, God of Harvests deck.

Commander's Sphere -> Crucible of Worlds because Crucible can get you lands, but the Sphere does not.

Zendikar's Roil -> The Mending of Dominaria because you have a lot of lands that sac themselves, Mending can get them back while also possibly recurring creatures from the grave.

Harmonize -> Life's Legacy because you will net more draws and get an Omnath trigger on the stack as well.

Other cards to find room for: Barrage of Expendables, Caldera Hellion, Hammer of Purphoros, and Evolutionary Leap.

Okay, rockleemyhero, here we go:

From me: Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Legion's Landing  Flip, Rest in Peace (RTR).

From you: Gideon of the Trials (looks like it got more expensive), Garruk Relentless  Flip, 4x Lingering Souls, 3x Treetop Village, Waste Not, Rootbound Crag (assuming the land-for-land doesn't apply to checklands? Otherwise Sphinx's Revelation), Sword of the Animist, Evolutionary Leap, and 2x Anger of the Gods makes it more or less even? I believe there are a couple of dollars in your favor, depending on what price source you use, which I'm okay with as Tezz is edging towards LP, and I don't want to gyp you. (If I miscounted, subtract 1x AotG).

PM me with your address or shipping preferences if this works for you! Cheers!
