Advent of the Wurm Discussion

It's up to you to make your deck comp work, making sure you're running the right number of creatures/ramp/draw/removal/misc. So I'll just give you a list of cards that I think are generally weak, and you can make of it what you will.

I would cut a couple Advent of the Wurm and go up a CoCo and some more creatures, you really want to maximize the potential of CoCo. For that reason you may want to consider things like Thraben Inspector for card advantage, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, and Qasali Pridemage. Additionally, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Thalia, Heretic Cathar can both be aggressive and competitive hits off CoCo, and if not the former Thalia really hates on blue and having to pay one more for CoCo isn't bad. I know your attached to Mistcutter Hydra but with CoCo it is an awful hit and you'll want more sustainable options so the above cards can replace it.

Secondly, you will want to upgrade that mana base. If you are looking to keep it pretty budget, Canopy Vista and Sunpetal Grove are your duals of choice.

Interesting deck! I like the idea of surprising the opponent with Advent of the Wurm! Makes for a nice flash-blocker that can also come down as a hasty beater end of turn 4! +1 on the deck!

@seshiro_of_the_orochi thanks! and I might be adding Sandwurm Convergence, Advent of the Wurm. And maybe Greater Sandwurm
some Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are also a great suggestion! thanks!

Is Advent of the Wurm and Archetype of Endurance your only source of dealing damage? If so I suggest you get more.

Hi man! I am like you, I started playing magic back then in Kamigawa, and since then I think I have bought a playset of all the snakes in modern just for collect them hahaha

I want to mention that embalm cannot be played as an instant, so it cannot work with Noose Constrictor as an Advent of the Wurm.

I haven't used yet Noose Constrictor and Honored Hydra but i'm going to try them as soon as possible. Hooded Hydra it's pretty good but I should playtest it a little more.

Sakura-Tribe Scout along with the Simic Growth Chamber and Amulet of Vigor is great, it can give you 4 additional manas in turn 2 with just 2 lands. But well, it is the best case scenario, normally they help, but not so well.

Good luck with it!!! I'm waiting for your next updates!!!

Your decks are pretty cool as well. I really like these wurm decks...maybe I'll have to build one myself, though the number of wurms I own is too damn low.

Cards you could try here are Advent of the Wurm, Sandwurm Convergence and Greater Sandwurm.Also, I really suggest to include some Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds to search your library without having to pay any mana. This makes panglacial wurm a little easier to cast.

A few cards you could consider for this deck Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter,Master of the Wild Hunt, Increasing Devotion, Sprout Swarm Don't underestimate this card seriously, Precursor Golem, Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Advent of the Wurm, Armada Wurm, Mimic Vat, and since you seem to have a lot of artifact and enchantment hate in your deck I assume it is a bit of a problem in your meta so perhaps you could try Nullmage Shepherd and Reclamation Sage.
