  • posted a message on [ORI] [CUBE] Evolutionary Leap
    My first impression is that this card is extremely efficiently costed, and that any cube size should test it.


    I ran this in my Gu Opposition/Natural Order deck last night along with Survival of the Fittest and Sylvan Library.

    Evolutionary Leap was great, I used it to draw more gas with elves and my tokens once they had done their thing. I drew a few duds and bombs with it. It's a good insurance policy if my opponents were to cast wrath, clones, or Control Magic, since I could sacrifice them in response. The shuffle effect was great with Sylvan Library too. I also wanted more green mana in play for this.

    This card is going to be sticking into my list for a while as I have been craving for more instant speed sacrifice effects in cube. Sacrifice effects are generally underrated in my opinion.

    I like this change a lot, though the Delver player might like it even more than I do. I really hope this becomes a permanent change as I do enjoy the occasional booster draft.

    So cheap! I'm very surprised to see Molten Vortex so pushed as you cannot be much more efficient than this. It's not great in aggressive decks but if you're playing Crucible of Worlds and Life from the Loam then this is a slam dunk. I could see this breaking into 360 lists.

    It's not strictly worse than Damnation in cube, since like Wildfire, creatures with 5 or more toughness creatures are going to survive. I'm not sure what size a cube may want this, but it's certainly a strong card. The problem is Toxic Deluge and Damnation are just better.

    Oh man, cube is really going to be all killer and no filler a lot faster than I had ever thought. Soon Magic fans will be claiming there is a 1cmc over powered cycle like the whole Tarmogoyf, Dark Confidant, etc. cycle. Geezer

    And now that the whole Legendary Creature//Planeswalkers cycle is spoiled I am already hoping for more in the future. Here is to hoping that they pushed Jace and Gideon hard enough that the Magic fans won't stop asking for more.






    Yeah, Rather than being satisfying, as soon as all 5 of these were spoiled, I just wondered what the next 5 would be like.

    I want more already :/.



    Haha yeah, they're so intricate and will create very unique game states that I know I already want more and more. Plus aggressive decks have problems with walkers, so why not give them some walkers of their own?




    This particular walker is extremely weird as it kind of destroys aggressive decks too...

    That and the creature does too, why does the indestructible ability also let you block is beyond me. I love powerful this card is but he seems oppressively good.

    Wow creature have become so intense in modern Magic. What a 1-drop!

    This card is ridiculous in powerlevel! Only bad comment on it is that he don't have any ultimate at all.

    His ultimate is turning into Gideon the walker!

    Savannah Lions with upside, the planeswalker? Yep that is a cube card. Surpasses everything to become the best white 1 drop of all time, sorry Mother.

    Kytheon, Hero of Akros
    W
    Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
    At end of combat, if Kytheon, Hero of Akros and at least two other creatures attacked this combat, exile Kytheon, then return him to the battlefield transformed under his owner's control.
    2W: Kytheon gains indestructible until end of turn.
    2/1

    //

    Gideon, Battle-Forged
    Planeswalker - Gideon
    +2: Up to one target creature an opponent controls attacks Gideon, Battle-Forged during its controller's next turn if able.
    +1: Until your next turn, target creature gains indestructible. Untap that creature.
    0: Until end of turn, Gideon, Battle-Forged becomes a 4/4 Human Soldier creature with indestructible that's still a planeswalker. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to him this turn.

    I would be hard pressed to say that this new Jace will be good in competitive, constructed decks but he is extremely good in powered cubes. He fuels multiple archetypes and can recast a few powered cards. I think every cube should give him a shot.



    Definitely seems better suited for cube (discard outlet and flashback is at a premium).

    But.... Like... He's 2 freaking mana! Wouldn't be surprised if people try to make him work in standard.


    2 mana, 5 loyalty, I don't know who their playtesters are but hot damn at least we get something that will stick in cube for a long time. I think he's 360 even in unpowered lists for now since 2cmc creatures are weak in blue after the first few. Possibly a staple, but he does have a high variance compared to all the 360 powered staples.

    I'm sure he'll get some standard play, how much depends on all the instants and sorceries that they'll print while he is in standard.
