I think, it's best to stay in red right now. Hinterland Hermit is at worst a piker, which is still good enough for an agressive deck. If the opponent misses his 2-drop, he's above the curve, which is what we want for aggro.
I think, this deck will be on the aggressive side, so creatures will die frequently. Wakedancer and Ulvenwald Bear reward us for this, so the question is, do we want to go B/R/(w) or B/G/(w)? I think Wakedancer, because we want to be attackig with lots of creatures for Hellrider.
A bad pack for us. I like Ulvenwald Bears better than wake dancer, in part because RG is a stronger archetype than RB. Also, the ability to put the counters anywhere is stronger than you think.
But Evolving wilds is my choice. As I mentioned, RW is tough to build, and I find I usually splash the white side of burning oil when I play it. Evolving wilds lets us do this. It also makes playing the many RR cards easier.
Ultimately, I don't think the black or green cards are good enough to push into a second color for, when we know we'll always play the evolving wilds. Let's wait for a stronger signal for color #2.
