I just got into Druid decks fairly recently and the evolution seemed like the most focused and competitive version - especially with Giver of Runes, I think a streamlined build that aims to combo and only combo is probably better suited for the current Modern environment. I also want to buy this deck irl, which currently has forced me into the moderate budget range (though this deck quite easily accommodates for that requirement). Here is my current decklist:
In deckbuilding, several things came up that I wanted to consult this thread for.
First, I found that generally, I was just using Duskwatch Recruiter as a wincon only, and decided that maybe I wanted to substitute some or most of them for more tutors, which serve the same purpose but usually hold a lot more utility.
I have also really liked Giver of Runes so far, which has seemed to me to be a great way to help cover removal or otherwise make the opponent's early turns extremely awkward.
At the moment, I am kind of lukewarm about Postmortem Lunge, and as I have shaved them down to 2 copies (mostly for more tutors) I was just wondering how core the 4-of is considered to you guys.
Concerning the URx decks that seem to currently be the bane of this deck, what sort of strategy is this deck taking post-board to deal w/ them? Also, just in general, are there any changes that you would make to my sideboard? (keep in mind I would totally be playing blue if not for my budget requirements)
Do you think I have too many tutors? I have just found that many of the other cards in my deck might as well have just been these more versatile combo pieces, and as of yet, I have liked the abundance of them quite a lot. On this topic, do you think Eladamri's Call is worth it? The factors I have been considering are mainly manabase problems, the upside of dodging Cage, the fact that it effectively can be a Finale of Devastation that allows you to pay the cost across 2 turns, and it's cheap IRL cost.
And finally, are there just any other thoughts or changes you would like to give me considering my deck and maybe the archetype in general?
EDIT: Postboard, what is our gameplan against Tron? Are we favored in any of the 2-3 games?
