Looking for ways to abuse Panglacial Wurm in mono green.
Posted on Aug. 10, 2017, 4 p.m. by Yesterday
I'm running a mono green Azusa deck (Azusa, not lost but just doesn't know where she is) which has a number of pain fetch lands in it which, when I have the mana for it, I like to use to cast Panglacial Wurm from my library. I'm wondering if there are any abusable combos for it in Commander, ideally a permanent card with a renewable effect that lets me shuffle the wurm into my library and search my library.
Why would you wanna put the wurm back into the library after casting it?

Oh, shoot. I meant put it back into the library from the graveyard, after it dies. I didn't make that clear at all, sorry.

Oh ok. That makes a lot more sense. You could use Vessel of Endless Rest to get it back in the library. It's a one shot though, and not the best rock for mono green. Oh and no shuffle effect so double poop

Yeah... I know of a few cards that can put it into the deck again repeatedly (Canal Dredger, Epitaph Golem, Junktroller), but unfortunately they're all creatures which obviously die to removal, so it makes them an easy target to deal with the problem when the whole idea is to have this recurring threat of the Panglacial Wurm which is sort of nullified. Poop is right. :(

Hopefully someone else chimes in. Big green fatties isn't my forte. I like the idea though. That creature is begging for abuse

Since you already have Primal Command, which can can put it back into your library, then search the library, maybe Holistic Wisdom to recur either Panglacial Wurm or the Command? Not quite what you were looking for, but the closest I could find.

Well it's a pretty cheap pickup so certainly worth giving a try. Thanks for taking the time!

The Eldrazi Titans are essentially Waste Management's recycling department.

Both powerful Eldrazi and Birthing Pod are things I'll probably include in some iteration of the deck but decided not to for now. I'm running Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator currently so it's sort of a nonbo with the Eldrazi, and Birthing Pod would actually be a great way to consistently search the library but I sort of need to build a creature curve around it.
Bow of Nylea is actually a great inclusion as is in my deck as something to sink excess mana into, so I think I'll work that one in right away. Thanks everybody!

elixir of imortality is a great graveyard to library card, gaining 5 life each time and shuffling your whole graveyard into your library. Evolving Wilds is a turn one search. 4 9/5s on turn one is no joke

Sacrifice the wurm to either draw loads of cards and search for a better creature. Next use survival of the fittest to search for ulamog or other eldrazi, then repeat dumping in ulamog in the graveyard. Everything shuffles back in and you can use survival or a fetch land to give you the opportunity to grab the wurm.
Bit mana intensive though to cast him for not much reason.

I might remove a few utility lands to replace with search lands for exactly that reason, and I somehow missed Survival of the Fittest which is a perfect inclusion actually. Thanks!
