Today we discuss Gregorian Worm and boy does this creature take me back!  I remember back in the day when the Shadowclash set came out and I was like, “Cool!  A fourth set!”  Lol…  It’s great to think of how many sets have come out since then and how some sets, like Shadowclash, stand out more than some other sets.  Here we go with the stats:


Gregorian Worm 

Cost: 4

Race: Parasite Worm

Civilization: Darkness

Type: Creature

Rules Text:

·         Shield Trigger

Power: 3000

I have no idea why it’s called “Gregorian”… It must be some inside joke for the WOTC staff.  In actuality it should be renamed to “Oh Crap! Worm”.  I remember almost ever time when I summoned it from my shields people would say “Oh Crap!” instead of its real name.  I also love the flavor text!


Naturally, 3000 for 4 mana is pretty bad… However, a lot of darkness creatures are like that.  What makes up for this is the fact that Gregorian Worm has a shield trigger ability.  In other words you can immediately summon it for no cost when your opponent hits it from your shields.  So 3000 power for no cost?  Sweet!  Where do I sign?  Creatures like these are especially useful against the rush.  It’s especially rewarding when your opponents breaks it on turn 2 with his Braid Claw.


And of course, we have a potentially free, beefy, evo bait.


The Good:  The power that Gregorian Worm brings out when it’s summoned for free is incredible!


The Bad:  3000 for 4 mana isn’t the greatest thing.


The Ugly:  If these things end up in your hand early on, they’re pretty much going in the mana zone.  There are better things to do on turn 4.


Constructed Rating: 3/5 – A solid creature with a solid effect deserves a solid rating.


Limited Rating: 3/5 – In a set where shield trigger creatures are predominant, Gregorian Worm certainly stands out.


Please feel free to post your comments, questions, and/or objections on the Message Board and I’ll be more than happy to respond.  Happy dueling!

21st June - Gregorian Worm

Hey again readers, the Worm Week continues, hitting another interesting
parasite worm. ill be reviewing Gregorian Worm this time around.

Name: Gregorian Worm
Cost: 4
Race: Parasite Worm
Civilization: Dark
Type: Creature

Rules Text: Shield Trigger (When this card is put into your hand from the
shield zone, you can play this card immediatley with no cost)

Power: 3,000

Gregorian worm is a 4 cost dark creature, with 3,000 power, its not too bad,
the mana/power ratio is slipping, but 3,000 power is anything but shabby for
a 4drop, the majority of 5 cost creatures seen, like corile, skysword,
windaxe, etc. are all less than 3,000 power, so Gregorian Worm can do plenty
of help taking out your opponents creatures, or resisting attacks/ evading

Like all of the cards this week, Gregorian Worm is a Parasite worm, which
means Chaos Worm can, and in most situations, will be placed on top of this

What makes this card interesting is its Shield Trigger ability, meaning if
your opponent manages to take out the shield that is Gregorian Worm, you can
play it with no cost, so if this card happens to be in your shields at the
start of the game, expect a nice surprise later on.
There arnt many Shield Trigger creatures, but this guy is one, and a quite
pretty one at that, 3,000 attack can do more than you would expect.

Like all of the cards this week, Gregorian worm fits nicely in a dark based
deck, in most cases containing the parasite worm family.
However, its below par in other decks, and wont see play much atall.

I give Gregorian Worm



I'm back for day 2 of the Worm Week here on Pojo. Today's card is the Gregorian Worm.
Name: Gregorian Worm
Cost: 4
Race: Parasite Worm
Civilization: Darkness
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
Shield Trigger Shield trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)
Flavor Text:
To a Gregorian worm, the world falls into two categories: things it can eat, and . . . Well, so far there's just the one category.
Power: 3000
Mana Number: 1
Artist: Akira Hamada
Rarity: C
Collector Number: 31
Set: Shadowclash of Blinding Night
Well this worm has a little bit more playability. Shield Trigger monster, little low mana to power ratio, but still playable. I personally like this card. At least it's not as bad as Tyrant Worm.
3/5 Card
3/5 Art (Now THAT'S a worm.)
