Eldritch Evolution Discussion

I like mini Vorn. I can see him doing great things in a Neoform/Eldritch Evolution deck. Mainly, with Jace, Architect of Thought

Generally speaking, decks that run as a toolbox style have ways to search up the creatures/spells they need at almost any given time. Since you are wanting a creature toolbox look into things like Fauna Shaman to help get the cards you need at the right time. Other cards to consider are Eldritch Evolution and Summoner's Pact.

I like cards with some kind of versatility... doesn‘s matter if it‘s adventure, „choose“-spells or the new MDFCs - therefore and to support the landfall theme i chose Khalni Ambush  Flip as i have some effects to bumb the land back to hand and cast it as removal if needed. I‘m aware of the fact that they are all 1 mana cheaper, therefore (and the little bonus effect in case of legendarys with no additional cost) i will list Ancient Animus to the maybeboard. Eldritch Evolution is a 1 mana morr one-time pod effect... with the upside of jumping 2cmc higher from your sacrificed target. Definitely worth to consider -> Maybeboard

Have you considered Ancient Animus or Pounce over Khalini Ambush? Or is Khalini Ambush there because it can be a land in a pinch? Also, if you can find a place for it, Eldritch Evolution would be pretty great card in this deck. It would go quite well with Chasm Skulker and Reef Worm.

Love the idea! I have a few suggestions to possibly make it a little more consistent:

Given that it makes up the core of your build, I recommend going to a full 4x Fauna Shaman and 4x Commune with the Gods and cutting the two enchantments. They cost too much mana to hard-cast and you'll be in a much better position if you don't wait to reanimate a creature until you have one of the two on the field. You'll instead get more consistency on the best cards for your gameplan.

I also don't think Triumph of the Hordes is very good - the odds that you have it in your hand and are able to cast it on exactly the turn where you can swing with your tokens/big creature before your opponent removes them are low. It also strikes me as a little win-more? In most cases you should either get a concede from putting 10+ power on the board in one turn, or they have a boardwipe and Triumph wouldn't help you anyway.

Instead, a fun thing you might want to consider is running an Eldritch Evolution package. In addition to reanimating a big Trostani's Summoner, if you run Eldritch Evolution, you could also turn that Summoner into something like Iona, Shield of Emeria or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. It'd also allow you to turn your 1-mana dorks into Fauna Shaman if you need it.

You could also run the Spike Feeder / Heliod, Sun-Crowned combo, since you can reanimate Feeder with the Vesperlark and find Heliod with your tutors!

Finally, you might want to consider discard options that don't need to tap so you can do everything in one turn. Seasoned Hallowblade is a great option and also gives you some defense or offense on the early turns. Vivien's Arkbow is a fun option too, which does need to tap but doesn't have summoning sickness.

It's a fun build anyway so take my comments with a grain of salt!

Lastly, with all the 1 and 2 mana creatures you have in the deck, I don't think it would be hard to turn Eldritch Evolution into pretty much 4 additional copies of Spike Feeder.

Imo you missed a few big pairings.


-turbo pirates Eldritch Evolution type effects into the Glint-Horn Buccaneer+ malcolm combo potentially with a kiki backup in case of opposition thief

Rograhk/silas renn and krark/silas renn

-storm or potentially opus thief builds. Rograhk is great for spells requiring a sac like Culling the Weak


-defacto esper build for cedh imo. Likely as a hatebears type deck

Of the ones you said, the only one I actually 100% agree with is krark/sakashima. The others I imagine are fringe at best.

9-lives on Eyed Abyss of Rainbow Irises

I'm not sure, but I think that Eldritch Evolution is a card that activates when it is cast, so if I sacrifice to it, then get another card from the sacrifice, then I blink it, it would be on the battlefield again, and then I can sacrifice to it again? Cascading Cataracts will be useful on turn 5 or earlier. If I use a triome, would that mean that Arboreal Grazer would put it on the battlefield tapped, as the triome does by default, then it untaps on my next turn? Because if so, I might run 4x triomes and 4x Arboreal Grazers. I'm really trying to budget myself, but when Pioneer MTG Arena comes out I might not have to worry about budget.
