This Week's Card Selector

In limited, if you're still around when you can cast this card, your opponents will not be for long.  This is an utterly brutal card.  Save a Dogged Hunter with Instill Energy, it will end most limited games (what limited format possibly has Dogged Hunter AND Instill Energy AND Crush of Wurms).

I think too many people are concentrating on this card's type 2 ability, which is limited.  In a now much slower Extended environment (well, slower in November), people will be able to cast this card on turn 4 or 5 with little problem thanks to Elves and Cradles.  Mono-green got a huge boost here with the Wurms, so don't overlook it.  

Constructed - 4
Limited - 4.5
Current Price - $3.98



It's just a bomb in any format. No less


Three 6/6 mansters for one card?  Solid!  A bazillion mana?  Crap.  Playable
just because of its nutty card advantage.  Way too costly for Constructed. 
A 3.5 (4 if it cost a bit less) in Limited, a 1.5 in Constructed.

Judge Bill

Ah yes, a card for the kiddies to end the week. At 9 to cast, it's much too high to see any play in most decks, because one of four things will have happened:
1) The game is already over.
2) They've stripped it from your hand.
3) They've got a couple of counterspells ready, or
4) They've got control (either through Ensnaring Bridge or having a Wrath in hand).
In limited, however, the 6 Wurms you will get will come up eventually. And they will cause serious problems with your opponent's math.
Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4


Crush of Wurms certainly won't win any prizes for subtlety. It is, however,
a stylish finish and pretty good card advantage as you could get 6 6/6
creatures from a single draw. The obvious drawback is that you have to have
a silly amount of mana, even if you only want to cast it once.

In constructed play, Crush is the icing on the cake for a mono-Green deck.
Other than that it takes up too many resources to use. Slightly better in
limited, where mana is more plentiful and creature advantage is paramount.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 4




Heh. Timmy must love this card. I think I'd play it if I had a couple of
Werebears and a Krosan Restorer. Otherwise it's just too damn hard to cast!
And forget about flashback!

Limited: 2
Constructed: 1
