Evolutionary Leap Discussion

sylvannos on Speeding up Skirsdag

In that case, don't change anything except the Tasigur, the Golden Fangs. The point of Bloodghast is that you can sacrifice it multiple times in a turn and keep bringing it back. Bloodsoaked Champion doesn't really fit that plan because you have to attack first.

Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, Simic Guildmage, Kitchen Finks, and Avatar of the Resolute are some other options in place of Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Evolutionary Leap may also be a nice sac outlet, especially with undying.

Against blue-white, 1 cmc discard had a really good track record. Go get a set of Inquisition of Kozilek, or Duress. 4 inquisition and 2 duress at best, if you play against a lot of counterspells and instant speed removal.

Second thing that works well: recursion. All kinds of cards that also do something from the graveyard. Maybe just build around creatures with ETB effects, Evolutionary Leap, and Whip of Erebos. That should be pretty solid.

It looks good so far :)

Not sure bout Evolutionary Leap feels like the deck is light on creatures you want to be killing...a Rishkar's Expertise seems like a better fit for card advantage here.

It might be fun to go more creature-heavy and focus on an overwhelming board presence with a little bit of spot removal for different card types. Path to Exile, maybe? A Banishing Light and an Oblivion Ring for any permanents? Your board wipes seem too hard on your deck.

Avenger of Zendikar might complement Mycoloth and help with your enchantment triggers. Birthing Pod might be good to test over Evolutionary Leap. Pathbreaker Ibex would be a strong inclusion, as well. Perhaps Caustic Caterpillar.

I'm working on semi-green creature lists for Mazirek Counters and Prossh Mill; they might include some helpful cards.

Since you'll have a lot of tokens available for chump blocking, you might like Fecundity or Greater Good (i.e. block --> die --> draw or block --> sac --> draw --> draw). Doubling Season or Parallel Lives can help here, too.

Domri Rade, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar might be good walkers for this deck.

Have fun playing!

MetaPenguinBomb on Trostani wants more friends the deck

1 month ago

so this ended up a way longer list than i expected. anyway if i were building trostani i'd probably include these but commander decks are largly personal and often just whatever cards are easily available, so use whatever you think would work.

Boreal Druid, Joraga Treespeaker; a couple more mana dorks.

Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves; ramps and leaves a body.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc ; crazy mana acceleration when its transformed.

Evolutionary Leap; trade in your tokens for other stuff.

Mitotic Slime; a lot of bodies.

Verdant Force; makes a lot of tokens if left alone for even one round of turns.

Twilight Drover; unsure about this in trostani, its been good in my ghave deck and flyers are useful.

Hydra Broodmaster; hella big army.

Increasing Devotion, Secure the Wastes, Nomads' Assembly, Deploy to the Front; a lot of tokens from single cards.

Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Harmonic Sliver, Aura Shards; removal for opponents' artifacts and enchantments.

Terastodon; a big boy that blows up some stuff, you can even blow up your lands to make creatures in a pinch.

Mentor of the Meek; some card draw.

Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession; double tokens.

Rhox Faithmender; double life.

Aetherflux Reservoir; one way to kill your opponents with your high life total.

Eldrazi Monument; should be easy enough to sac one token per turn to keep.

Collective Blessing, Path of Bravery, Dictate of Heliod, Bloodspore Thrinax, Gavony Township, Cathars' Crusade; make your tokens bigger.

Overrun; another overwhelming stampede.

again, i'm not saying run exactly these cards, but hopefully some of them look useful to you.

@chadsansing: Evolutionary Leap is a weaker version of what I use Fauna Shaman for. Survival of the Fittest is the nicest by fat but I justify not buying it due to the fact Fauna Shaman maybe slower but is re-curable and draws a big target on it.

I love your creature list. I am working on a BG sacrifice deck, as well, over at Mazirek Counters.

Have you tested with Evolutionary Leap or Survival of the Fittest?

Happy brewing!

Thank you TaegukTheWise,

I appreciate your comment, much more detailed information than I could have expected. You are correct, I recently started to build this from the Pre-Con (Commander Anthology). This has been the deck sitting on the back-burner, while I do like to play it and just grind for value, it's definitely not the fastest.

I understand the concerns with Ghostway, etc.. Not only can they do nothing, but also become counter-intuitive with any tokens and Perplexing Chimera's value. I do like them for responding to the wraths or undesirable effects.

I'll definitely be looking at adding Cathars' Crusade, Birthing Pod, Evolutionary Leap, Avenger of Zendikar, Thought-Knot Seer, Knight-Captain of Eos

I have not been playing all that long and I have a classic case of alt-oholism, So I've gone wide with my decks, spreading my cards across various decks instead of focusing on just a few. So a lot of the staple answers, are else where for the moment.
