Gyre Sage question

If i play a Gyre Sage, then play a Elvish Archdruid, does the sage evolve, or does it become a 2/3 from the Archdruid and not evolve?

Thanks!
The moment the Archdruid enters the battlefield the gyre sage will become a 2/3.  Since that makes he evolve trigger condition false it will not trigger and the sage will not gain a counter.

Evolve won't trigger. Trigger conditions are checked right after an event happened, so the Archdruid is on the field and its ability applies already, making the Sage a 2/3 in that check.
Ok so state based effects like the elf pump from Archdruid get checked before any ETB triggers like evolve then, that's the rule of thumb to remember...
The pump from Archdruid is a static ability, not a state based action.

It's not checked, just "always on."
