Armada Wurm Discussion
3 days ago
Eternal Witness has been an absolute game changer and really adds a new dimension to the deck. It's a brilliant combo piece and allows all sorts of super value plays. I've made it a 3 of (for now!).
I've stuck with Thragtusk for a while now, but it's not quite big enough to really own it's slot. The life is nice, but often just delays a loss rather than advancing a win. Stonehorn Dignitary was also guilty of this behavior. Instead, I want to try Verdurous Gearhulk and Armada Wurm. The first can boost my splicer tokens or come down as a big trampling creature whilst the second doubles down on the token generation theme. Hopefully these finishers will help increase the win rate against the "go big" decks.

marcoferrassoli thanks for the sharing. Yes keeping the deck to 100 cards is a headache.
The earlier version of my deck ran Growing Ranks too but I found that if I didn't draw into my big token producers like Armada Wurm, Advent of the Wurm and Bramble Sovereign (to copy a big guy), am essentially populating just one 1/1 minion per my upkeep. I've since removed all these cards, except Sovereign, from my deck.
I'd recommend Tendershoot Dryad as a possible replacement for Growing Ranks. Achieving City's Blessing is extremely easy for decks like ours so we'll be churning out 3/3 Saprolings, not just during our upkeep, but during everyone else's upkeeps too.
My 2 cents worth ;)

Daarkest Advent of the Wurm sounds like a good replacement for Armada Wurm since I get two flashed Wurms over three sorcery speed Wurms. Second Harvest feels a bit excessive though since he already have a lot of protection for our board and Parallel Lives and Growing Ranks will pull a lot of weight. I feel like Song of Freyalise wouldn't do too much since the aim of this deck is to have a lot of BIG tokens rather than a LOT of small tokens. This deck falls behind in terms of card advantage so that's why I considered Harmonize and tutors.
seshiro_of_the_orochi, I didn't even realise Drover of the Mighty was even a card since I didn't play while Ixalan was in rotation. Its only benefit when compared to Druid of the Anima though is if I keep in Polyraptor and I might switch between it and Nacatl War-Pride. Cream of the Crop however, is the perfect card tyty.

I'd cut all 3 Selesnya Charm, 1 Increasing Devotion, 1-3 Armada Wurm, and all 3 Intangible Virtue. Charm isn't very good, Devotion just costs too much, same with Armada Wurm, and Intangible Virtue isn't as good when you're sacrificing your creatures to Mycoloth and beating down with big things like Advent of the Wurm, Shanna, and Wayfaring Temple. If you don't like cutting Virtue or any of the other ones I listed you can also cut a few or all of the Essence Wardens; there aren't very many go-wide token makers, and you're better of playing a mana dork turn 1 since you have so many big spells. It's ok when you get a Mycoloth going or cast Increasing Devotion, but without mana dorks that'll only happen on turn 5, and it would probably be dead by then (along with you). You can also cut a land to fit a mana dork in, with them there's less of a need to hit all of your land drops.
Seeing as your budget was under $5 per card and Utopia Sprawl isn't too expensive right now, you should go for Llanowar Elves + Utopia Sprawl if you do add mana dorks. It's the fastest ramp package available, and it can give you four mana by turn 2.

HOW has no one mentioned this gem yet: Armada Wurm.... No explanation needed.

To add on to the above comment, you should add 4-8 mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Avacyn's Pilgrim, otherwise your deck will be too slow. If you can afford it Llanowar Elves + Utopia Sprawl is really good at ramping.
Since your deck seems to be focused on making large amounts of tokens rather than big tokens, I suggest you cut Armada Wurm and Advent of the Wurm in favor of spells that make more creatures like Gather the Townsfolk. That way you can take better advantage of Shana and Wayfaring Temple.
