Evolutionary Leap Discussion

I actually haven't played Veldalken orrery yet.. I might be cutting it to be honest. Th sudo haste is nice though though. I forgot to add Evolutionary Leap to the main board. Lol, that is one more card to add to the deck great. I do want to add Blood Artist as well.

How has Veldalken orrery been testing? It seems like one of the weaker options atm

You also could include the Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle combo her if you'd like

As for sac outlets I enjoy Evolutionary Leap personally, an I think Dimir House Guard would be very good here as a sac outlet, and tutor that Meren can recur.

Miren, the Moaning Well is a nice choice being a land, and Greater Good is just plain silly.

Dark Privilege gets an honorable mention for protecting Meren as well as being a sac outlet, and Perilous Forays turns everything into a quasi Sakura-Tribe Elder which is just great with Meren.

Finaly for some value you could consider Attrition or Helm of Possession or even Altar of Dementia as a win con and to mill more creature into your grave.

As far as cuts go, I might suggest Verdant Force, Mazerek, either of the Lillianas, especially of the veil in commander, Birds of Paradise,and Mulch as these are the cards that seem to be the weakest in this format and in your deck.

Eyeless Watcher seems pretty underwhelming to me, i'd cut that. Carnage Altar too.

Also, not sure if you are looking for advice but I'd also try to make as many of your sac outlets into creatures vs enchantments/artifacts just so you have more to sac if necessary. Although Greater Good would be very strong here and possibly Evolutionary Leap

Savra, Queen of the Golgari does not allow you to sacrifice creatures, it just does stuff when you do, and Corpse Traders is sorcery speed so no. I am thinking more along the lines of Viscera Seer, Attrition, Blasting Station, Carrion Feeder, Evolutionary Leap or any other card like them.

I would take out the following:

  • 1 Forest, you still have enough lands at 36 and plenty of ramp in here.
  • Birds of Paradise, its underwhelming if you draw it late game.
  • Evolutionary Leap, you want the creatures in your graveyard, not your hand. You also have no say in which creature you get so this slot could also be another tutor or something that gets you what you need.

However, it also weakens you deck significantly. The more cards you run, the less you will see the cards you want, which is also a reason to run max copies of something.

If you are going to run 1 ofs, you want at least some sort of consistency engine, such as Green Sun's Zenith, Evolutionary Leap, Chord of Calling, Birthing Pod, Survival of the Fittest or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

No one here is going to talk about Evolutionary Leap?
