Evolving Wilds

It's Terramorphic Expanse. It's the same card. Is it good? Yes. It gives decks and deckbuilders that can't afford expensive fetchlands or duals the opportunity to fix their mana, and it works well with landfall, Knight of the Reliquary, Grim Discovery, Crucible of Worlds, etc.

Casual- 3.5

Evolving Wilds
 
It's interesting to note that even as the power level of spells has supposedly decreased (try telling that to anyone who's ever been on the wrong end of Cryptic Command), the power level of lands has increased greatly. Once upon a time, Evolving Wilds would have been considered an amazing card, and having it in Standard alongside the likes of Terramorphic Expanse, Raging Ravine, and Glacial Fortress would have been unthinkable. Maybe Wizards just doesn't care any more, but you should take note - Evolving Wilds is fun and effective, elegant and appealing, synergistic and enabling. Once upon a time is now.

Magic The Gathering Card of the day: Evolving Wild’s

Welcome back readers, upon first seeing this card I was flabbergasted, there is no reason to just not reprint Terramorphic Expanse as flavor wise it even fits perfectly in Rise of the Eldrazi. Then it sunk in Elder Dragon Highlander. The casual format that needs mana fixing and is restricted to 1 terramorphic expanse now had a second, brilliant! In standard this card is as playable as the expanse, if you’re running a budget deck if not the majority of the time fetch lands are superior in every way and bring lands into play untapped often times a deal breaker. In extended and eternal this card won’t see any play as you have access to enemy and allied color fetch lands. In casual and multiplayer this is not only a god send for EDH decks but many players, the slow pace of casual games allows the come into play tapped flaw to be less severe. The mana fixing and thinning it provides also can’t be overlooked, a cheap price tag as well. In limited its fixing and thins your deck so you draw bombs if your in two or more colors choose it highly.

Today's card of the day is Evolving Wilds which is Terramorphic Expanse with a new name and both are still legal in standard at the time of this review. Both are able to thin out your deck, get a specific type of land when needed, and trigger Landfall effects. If you are using one it may help the deck to use the other as well and as commons there is no major cost associated with acquiring playsets.

For Limited this is a very useful card that should be picked up around the time of acceleration during Booster and included in pretty much every Sealed deck. The most critical aspect is getting to choose which color of mana you have access to which may directly benefit your next turn's play or Level Up creatures. In addition effectively turning a forty card deck into a thirty-nine card deck makes getting your key cards noticeably more likely.

Constructed: 4.5
Casual: 4.5
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4.5
