Advent of the Wurm Discussion

Also I have been thinking about the 4 drop slot of Advent of the Wurm , and that is a (somewhat mana intensive) 4 mana 5/5 trampler. To compare, Battle Screech can often give me 4 1/1 flyers for 4 mana, which is less intensively costed, because the deck has more white sources, but also, The deck benefits from having more creatures on the battlefield.

Bant and Selesnya decks sound like the way to go.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice can be a cool general. Let's you gain a ton of life, and populate can be a versatile mechanic where you can choose to go wide with alot of tokens, or focus on creating and copying bigger tokens from cards like Advent of the Wurm and Desolation Twin .

Arcades, the Strategist is another interesting option. Using defenders can be like being the good guy. But assigning combat damage with toughness rather than power could be a little confusing for a beginner.

Hey, why do you feel you need to play all low mana cards? More low mana cards than anything else is good deck building, but with Trostani you can take real advantage of some high mana creatures.

Armada Wurm for instance can gain you 10 life and puts a 5/5 Wurm token with trample on the battlefield to populate. It's 10 trampling power on the battlefield for six mana. Opponents need an answer for this. It's really the only budget big creature you need because of it's great interaction with Trostani.

Wayfaring Temple grows as you play more creatures and if he connects for combat damage to a player then you populate. Advent of the Wurm is instant 5/5 Wurm with trample good with populate. Trostani Discordant is an anthem for your other creatures and she creates two 2/2 Solider tokens with lifelink to populate. If any of your opponents steal your creatures, gain control of them, then she gives you back control of your creatures.

When casting a lot of low mana creatures then Beast Whisperer is good repeatable draw. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is other repeatable draw when you cast creatures and scry 1 at upkeep is very helpful. Dawn of Hope is repeatable draw when you gain life for the cost of mana. With Trosanti on the battlefield adding an extra two mana to creatures who ETB lets you draw a card. If life gain is what you're after Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant are great because they care about any creature that ETB including all your opponents creatures. These cards are good with Dawn of Hope for draw.

If combat with weenie creatures is what you want to do then consider Dauntless Escort , Selfless Spirit , Dauntless Bodyguard and Unbreakable Formation ? These cards can protect your creatures from most board wipes and combat. Rancor is good with little creatures and trample for Phyrexian Processor tokens. Spirit Loop is a upgrade for Lifelink. These auras are nice because when the creature enchanted with one of them dies/exiled or an opponent destroys the aura then the aura goes back to your hand.

Swords to Plowshares , Selesnya Charm , Evolution Charm , Dawn Charm are low mana instants that are good in Commander. Charms give you options and when you can realistically only cast a card once then options are excellent.

Trostani, selesnya's voice is usually associated with being a token focus build. Here's some suggestions if you wish to go into that direction Advent of the Wurm , Crested Sunmare , Second Harvest , Aetherflux Reservoir , Sandwurm Convergence , Dawn of Hope , Sylvan Reclamation , Elemental Bond , Colossal Majesty , Seance .

Boza Really? Do you know how many Flying Men and vanilla 3/2s for 3 have been made?

Tons of random gain life taplands, vanilla creatures, or creatures with... trample or reach (or both like Archweaver , yeah that'll take days to code).

But SynergyBuild, tons of spells are in this game... like Firebolt or Advent of the Wurm , or complex multi-lined creatures like Ambush Krotiq .

While I understand there are complex cards, perhaps replacement effects like dredge, etc. could be difficult to make (but once done the code can be copied over from Darkblast to Golgari Thug ), and the mythics and walkers that need voices and animations can be difficult to get, but a vast majority are super easy to make. 50% could be done by just putting art and the keywords on the cards. Random discard spells, burn, countermagic, card draw, ramp, tutors, fatties, dorks, taplands, duals, etc. could all be so easy to make and the other 50% would just be cards with keywords like Battalion they'd create and copy between everything.

zdtsd Actually, I have tons of ways to make my creatures into tokens. Helm of the Host, Mimic Vat, Mirrorpool, Blade of Selves, Seance, and God-Pharaoh's Gift have been enough for me, and I just picked up Bramble Sovereign.

I used to have Desolation Twin, but I found that it was just too much mana, even for the sweet token. Also, making a token copy of it wouldn't allow me to get 2 per populate, because it's trigger is on cast, not when it enters the battlefield.

Also, in this deck, Advent of the Wurm would be a small token, not a big one.

Polyraptor sounds cool for the deck, even if the token is a bit small. I'll play around to see if it fits well.

Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it! Sorry I didn't respond earlier; I kinda forgot I had put my deck up here.
