    It's two 5/5 trample wurms for 2WWGG, no picture yet as far as I know.

    That is stupidly strong if that is real. Resto Angel did not run out of targets...

    Source spoiled a bunch of M13 cards, so the card is def real.
    Unfortunate that the best populate target is outclassed by Resto.

    Yeah, I definitely think this should have been more in line with some of Selesnya's other stuff and been "Put a 5/5 wurm with trample onto the battlefield, populate".

    Restoration Angel target?
  • #9
    Maybe he didn't see the manacost correctly. I can imagine 8, 7 at best, but 6 is just stupid (and I'm saying that as a GW player myself)

    Wow, that's not too shabby. Shame that a lot of Selesnya's populate targets are junk. This, however, looks worthwhile.

    Feels a LOT like broodmate dragon to me. Anyone else think they're similar enough?

    I sure hope there's some mistake there. I mean, 4x tusk + 4x wurm is titans all over again.

    If this is true my W/G sublime blink deck just got another fatty. Actually this n tragtusk will probably battle for the spot. Oh tough choices(•_•)

    Hey, Grave Titan put 10 power on the board and an additional 4 every time it attacked. At least with this one you have to use other cards to get more power out of it.

    Broodmate dragon puts two 4/4 flying in play for 6. Better than trample.

    It's definitely a throwback to it.

    Grave titan also had no evasion, and you could sponge 6 every turn with a single 1/1. 10 trample is an immediate threat, and if you don't remove both, prepare to get flickered/populated to hell. Blocking back against trample of large size rarely nets a trade (and you stlil take damage,) and not blocking back is basically improvised evasion. Grave titan only scares me more in the world of EXTREME board control we had back in zendikar era. Right now, I'd rather play that wurm.

    Not if you've got flying too. So not always.

    They have more than enough to be a legitimate deck.

    Combine this with Deadeye Navigator, for a 5/5 trample wurm token for every 1U. Populate needed better tokens than overcosted birds + centaurs, anyway.

    I'll take more power in two colors. Also, trample is not worse than flying. Broodmate was pretty boss though.

    4x tusk 4x this 4x resto angel, the deck is made already. It cannot be 6cmc imho, c'mon 10 damage with trample? And not in s single body, so removal only takes 50% away?

    Oooh this is gorgeous, GW is contender for being the best deck.
    Don't just have an idea -

    The card you proposed would have probably led to that fabled cackling counterpart combo.
  • #24
    Broodmate Wurm :p

    And actually I don't think flying is better than trample necessarily, especially since there are so many fliers and things to kill fliers running around. Trample is harder to get around. Very good creature, I want four. 10 power and trample on two bodies for 6 is nuts.

    I guess it's true that this card is around the same powerlevel as Broodmate Dragon. Losing flying for +1/+1 and trample is fair. Though, Broodmate Dragon was in three colours, there was no blinking, nowhere near as much token support, and it still saw lots of play.

    6 mana seems likely, though really pushed. I guess I just wasn't expecting Selesnya to get the better card out of the non-guildleader mythic cycle. Not that I'm complaining!
