While Wurmskin Forger is a nice idea as far as throwing a few counters strategically, it's ridiculous casting cost makes no sense. This is NOT the guy you will be happy to see in your opening hand.  7 mana is just too much for such a wimpy body to go with it. If it had cost one less, then MAYBE, or if it had given you a 3/3 to go with it, then yeah. But not as is.  I did try to play it a few times in a sealed to see if it would turn out well... nope. Save your deck slot for something better.

The ability to spread 3 +1/+1 counters among creatures of your choice is a nice trick. However, for 7 mana, you only get a 2/2 body to go with the 3 counters? No thanks in constructed. Even as a 5/5 (with all 3 counters on him), he's still too weak for 7 mana.
In limited though, he can be great. Pumps up your Auriok Bladewarden or Spikeshot Goblin was never so fun. I'd fit this in my deck if I were green in limited.
Constructed: 2
Limited: 4

This guy took a little bit to catch on,  but he's quite good at what he does
in limited,  even at 7 mana.  Any time you can have a potentially much
larger 1: flier or 2: regenerator,  that's a good thing.  In constructed
though, you'd be better off with, say, pentavus.
constructed 1.9
limited 3.1


 Thursday: Wurmskin Forger

In Constructed, this thing is just too expensive. 7 mana for a possible
5/5 or a 2/2 with small pumps to your army is just too slow. Currently, elves have faster methods of pumping their creatures. Think Wirewood Pride.
Not worth it.

In Limited this thing is much better. Creatures are very important in any Limited format especially big ones. This card helps your fatties get bigger. Plus he's a common. A strong pick.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 3.8 (would be 4 if not for his high cc)


Wurmskin Forger
    Another mirridon card I like for limited. Lots of people underrate this card at times. This card is meant for those in sealed who don't have bombs to have themself a little bomb. It is however expensive and a bit unreliable, but it does get the job done. Play this when you have nothing better. Resolving it though is good times.
Constructed: 1
Limited: 2.5
