Everyone knows that good luck and good game are such insincere terms that any man who does not connect his right hook with the offender's jaw on the very utterance of such a phrase is no man I would consider as such.
I just want to say one thing before I say anything else about the card - I have a feeling the Simic guild is going to have the best art of all ten of the guilds. The art on this card is absolutely beautiful.
With that said, I agree, if this is how they're doing evolve, then it seems reasonable that Bant decks might have use for the mechanic. But I'm not sure they can use this card (though it's not a particularly bad card).
If this is real...? Dear god, I hope it's not. While not pack rat power level, it would quickly get out of hand. Turn 5 attack with your weenie and let it die, play this, play Hunger of the Howlpack, draw three cards and have a 4/4 with evolve and its ability? Interesting
Interesting... starts small, but I won't be shocked if it sees use. Standard is grindy and I know a deck that would love more card draw. If evolve gets any more insane, I might go Simic at the Pre-Release. Very cool card.

Awesome... thought it was just today. Merry Christmas Wizards(:
What you are about to read the absolute truth about the deck that once nearly killed WotC's revenue.

Evolve seems like it would be the sickest limited keyword. bonus on all my guys for getting bigger? sure ok.
I wanna flash back Increasing Savagery on her.. Draw 10 anyone?

The whole experience of watching a chubby Korean guy bounce around singing in some language that no one understood, coupled with exploding boats, dudes in blue sequenced tuxes, and dudes air humping in ten gallon hats was too much for some to take in on the first watch.
I find this card to have some nice potential, but that 1/1 body is really weak. I fear it will end up being just four mana someone casts before their opponent kills it with... well anything (crippling blight comes to mind). It definitely works well with the flux mage we already have as it will just be a nice easy way of getting another card. Plus, now we have a target for Bond Beetle's +1/+1 counter. 1 Green mana for a 0/1 chumpblocker and a card, I can think of worse things.
Overall, I see this being valuable in a limited environment, but probably not constructed playable. Maybe if it were a merfolk so that it could benefit off of a Master of the Pearl Trident.
This card... looks fabulous. Makes me want to do something with a GU deck in EDH

This could be cool in BUG with Dreg Mangler, but I think the real key to success with this card is Angel of Glory's Rise. Now getting a Glory's Rise into play not only gets you a huge army, but it also draws you a new hand. Seems good.
