Sandwurm Convergence
 
I'm having flashbacks to Frank Herbert's Dune, and even further back to Barsoom and Helium. And I like it! While the card's first effect is not the most powerful effect for a color that can damage or destroy those same flying creatures outright, getting a 5/5 for free is almost worth the price of admission alone, especially for multiplayer. It ensures you'll always have a blocker and helps with anything that counts creatures coming into play, and gives you a stream of things for Naya's high-power-matters cards and the like without having to spend any additional resources.

Sandwurm Convergence (5/5)

 

This is definitely more a fun card, but it's a very fun card. It blocks flying creatures from attacking you, and it gives you a Wurm each turn. It's, at worse, an 8-mana 5/5 with an additional 5/5 each turn; it can hose a lot of big flying creatures, like Angels and Dragons, as well as the smaller flying creatures in other colors.

 

I think it's definitely too expensive to really make a splash, but it's a fun card. It can combo with Moat-style effects for 62% more fun, and a steady stream of Wurms can make the game more fun. But 8 mana is a lot to ask for, and the protection only helps in a handful of cases or late games.
