Elvish Piper

I'd cut: Rush of Knowledge - there are much better draw spells, even when you generally have your general as a 4cmc land out. Frantic Search - I don't think this is worth playing unless you care about the discard. Elvish Piper - there are better cards like Monster Manual now. Displacement Wave - potentially alright with how high cmc your stuff is? But it is kind of inefficient and works against your mana artifacts. Generally I think you want to replace more of your ramp with land fetches like Rampant Growth over the mana rocks.

For adds: Monster Manual, hullbreaker horror as one of the best new Sea Monsters. Trench Behemoth seems interesting to me? Khalni Ambush  Flip as a way to get your land count up. Farseek as land ramp.

I'm not sure about the small instant-speed subtheme you have going with Rewind and Unwind and just general high-amount of instants. You've got a lot of high cmc leviathans which I think would tend to lead to you playing more sorcery speed. Might be easier to have lower cost interaction over expensive interaction that untaps.

Also agree on all of Lynn's cuts.

BishopAtavist so the way i cheat in dragons here is using artifacts Quicksilver Amulet etc or the creatures like Elvish Piper. Also. i learned at my last commander night you can trigger Scion as much as u have mana. So i theory you can stack your graveyard with dragons. So using things like Eerie Ultimatum brings out ever dragon ive put into my graveyard using Scions ability. the Goal of this deck was to ramp up quick enough to get a out a card that lets me cheat out a dragon Belbe's Portal then get some on the field. Also adding dragons that have enter the battlefield triggers help aswell in theory when this deck plays well i can have mulitple dragons out turn 5.... sorry i left 2 comments im new to this site so dont know how to delete a comment

The only infinite combos with Wurms that I can think of off the top of my head are infinite tokens with Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Wurmcoil Engine/Symbiotic Wurm.

The combos I was originally thinking of were infinite mana using Bloom Tender/Faeburrow Elder/Sanctum Weaver + Freed from the Real/Pemmin's Aura.

You are already running 2/3 of the creatures and the auras can also be used with Arcanis the Omnipotent, Elvish Piper, and Howlpack Piper  Flip so they can still work with your game plan even outside of the combos.

I can respect wanting to keep a deck within a particular power range though. I think that the best games are ones where it feels like everyone is on about the same level and have a roughly equal chance at taking the win.

There are few enchantments you can consider that will help you get more fat creatures into play: Sunbird's Invocation for when you cast your big spells, and Lurking Predators for when your opponents cast spells. Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet are a few other options for cutting some mana value down, and they give you the flexibility to put creatures into play at instant speed. This can ensure you get some attacks out of your creatures if you want before flinging one of them at the end of your turn.

A Strionic Resonator will let you double up on damage for sacrificing one creature.

Lifeline is a fun card, but it works for the whole table. With your build here, though, you'll usually be taking for more advantage of it than anyone else.

I'd also recommend cards like Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread to help speed up the damage clock, since your commander only gives you one activation per turn cycle.

@MyFETTish: Thank you very much! Lizard Blades looks excellent and is very fitting! I'll try to get ahold of that one soon! Fireshrieker looks useable and on-theme, I'll think about that one. Elvish Piper, while not on theme, is a power card here and I think is a strong contender, for sure. Sneak Attack seems to be a wincon, but more fitting in a Jund deck where I can add more recursion via Black ... but may be worth it just the same. I'll have to playtest that one.

Also Sneak Attack and Elvish Piper might be good to consider in here.

Awesome deck! I always really enjoy the ones where you have a strategy in mind and then make it to make it work. It always makes the most fun and unique decks.

I do wonder if Thousand-Year Elixir or another haste enabler could get your Elvish Piper hitting reliably. No one ever expects Crashing Drawbridge to be something that needs to be removed, but when it makes a hasty piper, then it's business. And untapping Crashing Drawbridge with Thousand-Year Elixir would even give you a hasty eldrazi : ) Heh, it might be going too far. I'm just throwing out ideas, but seriously, this is a really fun looking deck, and it's just wonderful when your Christmas dreams of crushing opponents comes true : )
