Massacre Wurm Discussion

For my build Beledros Witherbloom will be amazing (but I do polymorph into 7 cmc things with stuff like Divergent Transformations - not everyone is running a side-polymorph gig like me. Witch's Clinic will actually be a windmill-slap in land for me (& it sounds like you have one) - because, again, lifelink on thantis when she gets bigger per attacking creature is pretty great. IMO Shiny Impetus is ramp that forces aggression which I think is great... If anything I usually get 1 mana any color from it (usually more though) & also force a surprising amount of dmg - I find it to be more thematic in the deck than Cultivate . Clackbridge Troll is a large threat where either people tap him down & I'm happy with 3 life & a card, or someone is taking a good ding, which also makes me happy. Massacre Wurm has done work for me. Journey to Eternity Flip usually gets forgotten & recursion on a land has won me games. Calculating Lich is a pet card that I like. Rampage of the Clans is one of my favorite instant sweepers that converts the board into vanilla attackers (sounds bad) but there are plenty of times where I hit a point that I just want the field to have creatures... Also has won me the game with Purphuros, God of the Forge

I have replaced Dread Cacodemon with Massacre Wurm , which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.21 to 4.15, because the demon is nice, but it is too expensive, must be hard-cast, and provides a one-time effect, whereas the wurm is less expensive, has a continuous effect, and can eliminate indestructible creatures.

Hello again gumbogogo,
Personally I don't think Legion Angel does much for you since it comes back as just a 1/1 flying that does nothing interesting. It's a good card but it's not very synergistic with the deck idea so if you're not sure what to cut I would start there.
If you're worried about agro decks more than else you could just add a bunch of board-wipes like Shatter the Sky and Doomskar . You'll probably be able to get back on the board quickly anyway with Offspring's Revenge and if they're not useful, you have plenty of ways to cycle through them with Cathartic Reunion and Thrill of Possibility . You could also main-board some Heartless Act or even Eliminate with the same idea to deal with threats earlier.
Again I know it always feels wrong, but I personally would run this deck with up to 70 cards in the main deck considering the meta, so you should be able to add what you like without having to cut too much.
Personally I wouldn't play too many Harmonious Archon because it would hurt some of your creatures, and even though it evens the battlefield in a way and looks good on your 1/1 tokens, if you're against a creature deck chances are they will have some ways to get +1/+1 counters or anthem effects while you don't, so it wouldn't always work in your favor. You could swap some for something else. Actually Massacre Wurm get's a sweet ETB, could be a fine addition too, but it wouldn't work too well with Harmonious Archon ...

seshiro_of_the_orochi Thank you for the complement. I am still in the planning stages of the deck. I have yet to go out and buy any of the cards (mostly because I just bought a house). Assault Suit was considered, however I would have to suit up one of my creatures and give it away. If I could suit up an opponents' creature like I can with Bloodthirsty Blade , than it would be an auto include, but sadly Wizards won't let me equip cards to my opponents' creatures. I really considered Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire for the deck as I could use Varragoth to attack open opponents and tutor up with I need or have someone else do search for answers we need, but I feel I would never get to use Varragoth for people would remove Varragoth instantly. Single target removal has been increasing lately and Varragoth is a prime target.
YourNeighborhoodGhost Thank you for the suggestions. I couldn't remember or find the Tempt with Vengeance or Rite of the Raging Storm cards, but I knew they existed. I want to add Massacre Wurm to the deck. Tombstone Stairwell would be a nice gift card, but the cumulative upkeep is turning me off of it. Awaken the Erstwhile would make me discard, and I hate to lose my resources. I could play it when I have no hand or cards I don't need, but that's too situational. I see no point in running Deathbringer Thoctar in this deck. Yes it will get massive fast, and can ping by ditching a counter, but by the time I can actually do massive damage with it, the game should be over by then. Six mana is a lot for a 3/3 body for this deck.

Why: Sword is good AF don't get wrong, but the ability to get the lands you need/ want out weights to me the benefits of sword
Why: Disciple sees the whole board, and combos with the lotus petal infinite line within the deck itself
Why: Homeward Path will be replacing what functionally im using Shepherd for(defense against other Tergrid decks), secondly Massacre Wurm applies more pressure, is great against token strategies, and has a pressure cooker kind of weight to it in the deck which helps with killing opponents
Why: Defense against other Tergrid Decks, as well as Soul-Guide Lantern does this job better
