Evolutionary Leap just seems like a build-around to me, although I think it can be a good way to combat control decks by saccing the creatures they kill. Anyhow, here’s an idea:
There’s basically two ways to approach this card:
- You play a deck with plenty of creatures in it.
- You can play a deck with only a couple of creatures in it and plenty of token makers.
Lets go with the latter.
So, what makes us something to sac in these colors? Here’s some good things:
There’s probably plenty more out there, but these seem pretty good… Well, with the addition of this:
We don’t want to hit mana elves in the mid- or late game, so we won’t be using any, even if it makes the deck slower. We might think about using some of the plentiful ramp spells available to us, but I don’t think that’s a good way to go. We can just hope the tokens slow our opponent down enough for us to get there.
The landbase probably needs a couple of Mana Confluences and maybe a Evolving Wilds or two if it can handle the comes-into-play-tapped lands. There might also be a few too many creatures, but I’d leave that to testing. Tasigur is a good addition to the deck, because we are putting stuff to our graveyard constantly.
We have some of the cards from above:
But white also brings a few additions of its own:
Well, if we’d bring in another color, we could use First Response with painlands..
