That's quite an unusual power and toughness for
a creature. This creature is, uh, A LITTLE
PRICEY for any format, even when the Convoke
ability is used to reduce its casting cost. Not

And taking the award for the highest
casting cost fat-arse in the set
How do you pronounce that, anyhow.
Autokthon? Whatever. Anyhow, 15 mana
is the cost, but we get to call on
our new Convoke mechanic to help us
with this massive monster. So,
create some tokens, cast a bunch of
guys, and convoke this monster onto
the board. Thank God he has trample.
So you'll have to have the deck and
the creature or token base to make
this guy playable. He sure is big.
Not sure if he's worth the wait or
the trouble...Dark Banishing is bad
times, ya know? But still, I will
try to get this guy out just for the
hell of it sometime, I think.

hey guys today we have the huge, hulking,
convoking wurm, Autochthon Wurm.
sort review, cuz there is not much more to say
than. he is a humoungous big humoungous high
costing humoungous potentially low costing in a
green/token deck humoungous has trample and did
i mention humoungous?. he is big and can cost
cheep, not much else to say.
constructed- 3/5 probably not going to be that
big of a card, even in G/W weenie decks
limited- 4/5 he is big and can cost less than he
should. pretty good.
casual- 5/5 casual players have seen the light
final thought- he is big... humoungous... big,
Welcome back my fellow Wurms! I thought you
would never come back. And it seems Green and
White are getting a very powerful yet expensive
ally. A 9/14 with trample and convoke, this is
crazy if you can ever get it out, but nothing a
good elvish piper or sneak attack can't fix.
Probably not the best pick for limited though.
