Wurmcoil Engine Discussion

clayperce on Test Build

Following up on your recent thread from over on Reddit ...

This looks very solid. And frankly, for your first FNM in a while, almost anything is going to be OK. I'm not sure how much IRL testing you've been able to do with the deck, but once you get the deck on a table, you'll rapidly find out what works for your playstyle, meta, and the rest of the 75, and you'll be able to adjust accordingly. Then, the real fun begins :-)

All that said, here are a few thoughts:

  • I'm not a fan of Prime Time at all, unless you just don't have another 6-drop. I would recommend another Inferno Titan, but Chandra, Flamecaller, Wurmcoil Engine, and Carnage Tyrant are also proven competitive options.
  • I personally love 3x Courser of Kruphix (partly for card advantage and the lifegain, but mostly because of the synergy with Chandra and Tracker), but I feel it's important to mention that most people think 1-2x is (much) more correct.
  • You might want to go -1x Mwonvuli Acid-Moss and +1x Stone Rain. Partly to enable more Cascade hists, but mostly because we (usually) don't need the extra Ramp.
  • Have you used Trinisphere before? It's been responsible for more Judge calls than any other card I've ever run, so you might want to spend some time on it (e.g., here) before Friday.

Draw well!

Personally i'd rather run Sengir Autocrat over Wurmcoil Engine or Gravecrawler. Nets 1 positive and one extra life w/ Phyrexian Altar, and fuels the 3/3 Life costs per Chainer's activation. Serfs are also great fodder for Skullclamp.

Twilight Prophet seems like a trap/bait card for now (from an reanimator perspective)... I've been interested in including in my list but haven't gotten around to it yet. I think it's better suited in a stax/control archetype like Xiahou Dun Control.

Thank you guys so much for the suggestions! And yea there are a lot of 6 drops in the deck, but going koth -2 into them is great. Sarkhan has been underperforming though. But I feel I should keep a 6 drop like Wurmcoil Engine or Inferno Titan to catch up against creatures. And while relic is good against graveyards, anger combos with Eternal Scourge and is awesome against dredge when they plan to go wide. But suns can cantrip, so it is definitely worth testing. Also I do need help with a sideboard and Dragon's Claw looks stellar as well as rabblemaster. But again thank all of you for helping out!

Hey there SurpriZe!

First- thanks and good luck! I'm eager to hear how it does :)

Second, I think I can help you out. Some of the more competitive options would be Blightsteel Colossus, Memnarch, Wurmcoil Engine, Mana Drain, Ancient Tomb, Force of Will, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Karn Liberated.

I dig it, I might consider Chandra, Flamecaller and Hazoret the Fervent in place of Wurmcoil Engine and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker. I think the latter two cards are good, but the former two have more synergy with your deck and what it's trying to do.

Thank you very much! I am glad you like the list. It s a fun deck and can be powerful, but to be more competitive it needs some spells to counter the graveyard hate. Often you will encounter Bojuka Bog, Relic of Progenitus, Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Scavenging Ooze, and Deathrite Shaman to name a few. Some cards to consider are:

Some reshuffle graveyard spells (Budget and more expensive):Elixir of Immortality, Perpetual Timepiece, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Counter Spells:Counterspell, Forbid, Voidslime, Disallow, Fervent Denial, Glen Elendra Archmage, Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk

Artifact/Enchantment Removal:Deglamer, Krosan Grip, Naturalize, Acidic Slime

Even Broader Removal:Abrupt Decay, Maelstrom Pulse, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Chain of Acid, Mold Shambler, Terastodon, Worldshaper, Vraska the Unseen, Duplicant

Next up are cards you can swap in that are not as expensive to acquire.

Out: Geth, Lord of the Vault, In: Gisa and Geralf;

Out: Fauna Shaman, In: Satyr Wayfinder;

Out: Grave Titan, In: Myr Battlesphere;

Out: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, In: Archaeomancer;

Out: Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, In: Razaketh, the Foulblooded;

Out: Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, In: Nezahal, Primal Tide;

Out: Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, In: Wood Elves;

Out: Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, In: Ishkanah, Grafwidow;

Out: Protean Hulk, In: Spider Spawning;

Out: The Scarab God, In: Bloodgift Demon;

Out: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, In: Avenger of Zendikar;

Out: Sheoldred, Whispering One, In: Ravenous Chupacabra;

To allow for the anti graveyard hate cards listed above, I would consider cutting for budgetary reasons: Yawgmoth's Will, Rise of the Dark Realms, Survival of the Fittest, Sylvan Scrying, Diabolic Servitude, Entomb, Coffin Queen.

You can change a lot of cards in the list aside from those mentioned here. Two cards I would not change and would pick up as they are very useful in the list are Volrath's Stronghold and Phyrexian Tower. You can sacrifice a creature to the tower gaining 2 black mana and use that mana to activate the stronghold to put the sacrificed creature back on top of your library. Volrath's Stronghold by itself is also a way to save at least one creature from your graveyard from getting exiled as mentioned in the graveyard hate you would face.

This should give a good sense of what type of cards to think about and try. I have used many of these cards on my way to getting to the list today. Another two good cards that are rarely bad are Wurmcoil Engine and Batterskull. Just good Value cards. Batterskull is not a creature to reanimate, but it is a creature when the artifact enters the battlefield. I hope this helps!
