And Culling Dais is deeply medium. There are better options, and you should be fine, as most of your wizards draw you cards.

I really like this one. I am building something similar but I'm trying to squeeze in the Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity combo. Looking at your list could use a couple more of Eladamri's Call or Melira, Sylvok Outcast to get the combo online a bit faster. Altar of Dementia seems to be your only sac outlet so I'd run a full playset. Perhaps splash a bit black and run Viscera Seer or run Culling Dais . And since we are milling them why not add a copy of Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger into the mix?

I understand. Many people think overrun effects are cheese, though I disagree (since they require the combination of multiple creatures, and cards like Torment of Hailfire require nothing but mana).

Drain effects are hard to pull off, and if you want to gear your deck towards them, you will find that your wincon of pinging opponents to death will revolve around a bunch of cheap token creatures. Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist , and Poison-Tip Archer offer you your road to victory if you can reliably sacrifice the tokens from Hornet Queen , Avenger of Zendikar , Deep Forest Hermit , and Tendershoot Dryad , just to name a few of my favorite army-in-a-can creatures.

You already have some great sacrifice outlets, but I would also add: Culling Dais and Perilous Forays to what you are already considering in your Maybeboard.

skoobysnackz - Thanks for the upvote, and for getting the reference.

TypicalTimmy, bushido_man96 & Poly_raptor - Thanks for the suggestions, I like them all, my wallet... not so much XD. That being said I'd like to keep it as budget as possible. It took me a long time to come to terms with adding Wurmcoil Engine because of the price tag... So the ones I'd like to see in the deck include: Mirror Entity , Nesting Dragon , Thornbite Staff , Birthing Boughs , Evolutionary Leap , Fanatical Devotion , Growing Ranks , Gruul Ragebeast , & Culling Dais . Ones I'm unsure of are: Second Harvest because I wonder if there'd be enough tokens to matter, Ashnod's Altar because not sure combo is something I want, Song of the Worldsoul because once we get eggs rolling we aren't exactly casting alot, & Helm of the Host for the investment. The others are pretty pricey or just seem off theme.

With all these new additions though comes subtractions... which I can never do easily so if anyone has any ideas in that department its appreciated.

Also... I'll likely be watching a Tremors marathon again now so... thanks for that. :P

Nice list! I love the wurms, reminds me of the film “Tremors”.

I built an Atla list fairly recently and can echo the above recommendation of Ashnod's Altar + Thornbite Staff - this paired with Purphoros, God of the Forge will win instantly. (I appreciate this if off wurm theme)

Gruul Ragebeast is also great because it’ll make all of your s fight everything and provides an immediate trigger for the eggs to die too.

I’d also recommend some top deck manipulation with cards like

- Congregation at Dawn - Sensei's Divining Top - Mirri's Guile

I’d also recommend Greater Good as you could draw some massive amounts by saccing your wurms.

I’m terms of sac outlets I’d say go for the ones that don’t eat into your mana.

- Phyrexian Altar - Culling Dais - Greater Good - Fanatical Devotion

Allow you to do this for free.

Thanks for the comment Poly_raptor. Greater Good is an absolute house in a deck like this. It's a free sac outlet that usually nets me 3+ cards per activation. Also, with the quality of creatures in this deck, discarding three cards to get one immediately onto the battlefield isn't really an issue.

Culling Dais is pretty interesting since it is a bit of a toned down Greater Good . I'll have to give it a try.

Poly_raptor on Omlette du Fromage

I wouldn’t run Greater Good - if you sac the egg to it you draw no cards and discard 3 cards.

I also found that drawing cards with sac outlets can be quite tricky to do properly if you’re constantly manipulating the top.

I chose to run Culling Dais instead, which can fix a big draw later in the game.

I really like your list, hope you don’t mind if I take some inspiration from it to tweak mine, I’m struggling with an inward battle of “do I make it more competitive or do I have lots of smashy dinosaurs”
