Rancor Really helps with the creatures that don't have trample. Strangleroot Geist and Predator Ooze are really good cards that add lots of devotion. I'd definitely make Elvish Mystic a 4 of, and you could also use cards like Gyre Sage to really rack up the mana. I'd use more cards like Khalni Hydra and Primalcrux instead of cards like Duskdale Wurm , simply because of the devotion count. I think more Reverent Hunter could be useful, considering the amount of devotion this deck racks up. I'd also throw Mistcutter Hydra in from your sideboard because of the amount of ramp you'll get from Karametra's Acolyte and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
I'm a huge fan of gruul, and I think you have a bit of extra fluff in there that doesn't really suite the deck. If you're looking for a bloodrush beatdown, cards like Zhur-Taa Swine , Foundry Street Denizen , and Volcanic Geyser seem a bit out of place. For the maybe-board, Primordial Hydra is always great and a few Zhur-Taa Druid cards have won me the game before along with providing a somewhat decent ramp to get the bigger cards like Duskdale Wurm . Me personally, I run a bit more of a ramp with 3 Ranger's Path , but I have been working at my gruul for awile so I know what my deck needs. I hope this somewhat helped, you just really need to know what your goal for the w is, then build around it.
Then if you are going to do a mono green Wurm deck then maybe Bellowing Tanglewurm
would be a better fit than Duskdale Wurm
. You might also consider Panglacial Wurm
, Ravaging Riftwurm
, Roar of the Wurm
, Symbiotic Wurm
, and Wurmweaver Coil
. My main area are Dragon and Demon decks while having a bit of experaince with Wurm decks. There are many combos you can do with a mono green wurm deck, you just have to be creative really. I personally would consider doing multi color deck as it gives you much more options though(But that's just my opinion). I also encounterd(When play testing this deck) is that it's a bit unrealiable as I have constantly
been in a drought. It can also be much faster than it is, maybe add Quicksilver Amulet to speed it up? Also consider adding Awakening Zone , Growth Spasm or Farseek to increase the mana ramp.
I think Joraga Warcaller be more useful if I had elves in this for anything but ramping.
