RCotD #65

Random Card of the Day #65:

Yavimaya Wurm - 4GG
Creature - Wurm

Initial thoughts:

Vanilla creatures. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're part of the game. This one is actually a pretty good vanilla creature. It's out of bolt range, and it has 6 power for a 6 cost, which is about par, but it gains trample.

The two cards that come to mind when playing this are Craw Wurm and Stomper Cub. This card is strictly better than Craw Wurm because of the trample. Exactly the same P/T, same mana cost, it's just this one has trample. This card is better than Stomper Cub even though it costs more simply because it is out of bolt range. I can't tell you how many times I thought I've had the winning card in my hand. Such as Ascendant Evincar and he just gets Lightning Bolt'd end of turn, or worse: during combat.

Still, it may be a vanilla creature, but its a pretty good one. But in a constructed deck, if I had the mana to play this card I probably play Baloth Woodcrasher or Brontotherium, depending on my deck. Probably Brontotherium unless I had a silly landfall deck. Or Harrow in my hand. 3/5
