Argothian Wurm Discussion

acscreamholy on Progenitus Hydra Tribal

If you are going for a true tribal theme on the deck, I'd suggest removing any card that isn't immediately thematic to Hydras. Things like Fish, Wyrm/Wurm/Worms, and large snakes make sense because they can look or fit into the mold similar to a hydra. Many of those types of creatures are very strong and beat face so there are plenty of good choices for replacement.

Suggestions for adding:

Mj3913 Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm thinking about taking out all the nonvital artifacts/enchantments so adding Fires of Yavimaya is iffy. Anger is surprisely expensive, and though i think it's better than Surrak, the Hunt Caller that's what i have for now.

The 7 mana removal options kinda don't do it for me. I think the idea that your removal should cost less than what you're removing sounds smart, especially when we're talking about a 7 mana kill one thing. That's not great in commander, I think at least.

bushido_man96 I like your ideas!

Do you think Desert Twister or Rain of Thorns is better removal?

Crater Hellion is interesting. It's going to kill radha, at the very least, and I think I'd need to retool the creatures at least a little to ensure i don't lose too much.

Groundskeeper is good after a land wipe, but only in certain situations. The land kill spell almost has to be Epicenter, all the others kill it if it's out. I think it might be too slow right now, but I'll need more playtesting to see.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Thanks for explaining your reasoning about Crop Rotation! I agree it's a good card, but it's not very powerfull by itself and kinda expensive($) so i think i'll leave it out for now.

Growth Spasm could go in, it's basically a 2 land ramp that has a least a marginal upside late game. Thanks for suggesting this one!

Argothian Wurm seems like a trap. It's just a big dude, and it might time walk me. especially if people are spitefull after a land wipe haha.

Ember Swallower seems so lackluster, if only it was a mini wildfire on monstrosity!

My bad, I didn't see Splendid Reclamation in your list. In regards to Crop Rotation, while it's true you don't have a specific land to search for, it still helps out Centaur Vinecrasher and Terravore (if you run it). It will also trigger Omnath, Locus of Rage and Rampaging Baloths at instant speed which can't be overlooked. Also, Growth Spasm might be an option. It only finds one land, but the eldrazi scion can block and act as a pseudo-land.

On a side note, post land wrath, Argothian Wurm would be pretty good. It forces your opponents to decide to face down a 6/6 or further hurt their mana base. Ember Swallower might be another option.

Thank you, mawwpg120! Do you have any suggestions that might make the deck a bit more competitive? I am trying to make it more unique than the ordinary Reg-Green land destruction that uses Inferno Titans and Stormbreath Dragons as a win condition, but I'm not quite sure what to think of Deus of Calamity yet. I love Shivan Wumpus/Argothian Wurm, as it is unusual and surprisingly effective as a win-con, or just some more land destruction if you need it enough. What do you think?

brcap on Argothian Wurm - respond to ...

I believe my question boils down whether Argothian Wurm's second clause is a triggered ability or a replacement effect.

The etb effect is obviously triggered, I'm talking about whether or not I can respond to my opponents choice to sac a land.

I.e. If They chose to sac, can I unsummon my wurm in response (to prevent it from returning to the top of my library)?

I didn't realize the frog only cared about your land cards. Argothian Wurm is not as good, and neither is the orb, though the orb is still alright (but more dickish, yes).
