By the way, if you would like to see mine, here it is: deck:the-worlds-spine.
4x bonfire? Really? :P.
How fast can this ramp? Are you able to live long enough to play worldspine? What purpose does Staff of Nin serve? Sorry about all the questions, but I wanna know :D.

Bonfire of the Damned is the best card in Standard. Anything else is a falsehood.
I can usually drop a Worldspine Wurm by the sixth turn, if not the fifth. And then I have Staff of Nin to ping of anything troublesome and keep my hand from burning out. For ramp decks (and I would know), the biggest problem is card advantage late-game. Staff of Nin lets you draw double cards to keep the threats rolling.
Between 4x Bonfire and 4x Mizzium Mortars , I can kill off anything that's bugging me while I ramp.
And I'd much rather ramp and know I'm going to get there than really on a very fragile combo the depends entirely on Worldspine Wurm being in the top 5 cards. And even if Worldspine Wurm gets dealt with on my board, I still have a shitload of mana to drop into things like Bonfire of the Damned , Mizzium Mortars , and Kessig Wolf Run .
This is just a rough build that didn't take much though. I'm sure I could see myself adding in one or two card:Devil's Play or Thragtusk s, for more stability.

Go look at mine again. I changed it. I'm able to pull of the combo 80% of the time, and if not a huge Splinterfright or a bunch of spider tokens will be enough.

Yeah, you might want some spot removal. Not sure what you need, Pillar of Flame might work since undying obviously works well against sweepers. card:Devil's Play might work as well, though it doesn't fight small stuff very well.
If you really want to have fun, splash blue with shocks and Farseek for Cyclonic Rift .Is it a good idea? Maybe. Is it fun? Yes. Equally bad is card:Yeva, Nature's Herald, so I can flash in Worldspine Wurm .

Or for even more bad ideas, you could splash black for Army of the Damned !

In a casual world, all of these are legitimate strategies.
Of course, in a casual world, Yeva wins games.

When I get my deck up, it is going to have elves for mana ramp and wurms for destuction. I already made it for real, so i just have to post it. :)

Holy hell. I forgot I had this deck.
It should go without saying that I'd never play something this terrible IRL.
November 10, 2012 11:29 a.m.
Haha. I just pulled a Worldspine and built a whole deck around it and Elderscale Wurm.

Do you think this is viable? U/G Wurmlash. It kinda plays out like mono green Eldrazi which was like the next best thing to cawblade at that time. I'm thinking adding in the red would be good. Niv mizzzet could be good to ramp up to as well.
