  Stinger Worm

Base Set


Date Reviewed: 4.19.04


Constructed Average Rating: 1.8
Limited Average Rating: 2.6


Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.

The Antman  Stinger Worm- Uncommon- #61 base set

Anouther day anouther mediocure card, Stinger Worm

Let me start off by saying this, black doesn't have a Bolshack Dragon. Because there is no black Bolshack Dragon, this is not a Onslaughter Triceps, get the picture? Sure he is a 5000 for 3, but loosing a creature is even worse than loosing a mana (like Onslaughter Triceps). Sure you could get rid of a useless creature, but IMO no creature is useless this early in the game =/

Ratings:
Constructed- 2/5 I just wanted to give him a 3, but since he gets rid of a creature he is a 2
Limited- 2.9/5 this was a realy hard one for me. I couldn't decide if you would either have more useless creatures this early, or less creatures out over all.

Final Thought- the only way that I could see him played is in some wacked black speed deck, but incase Wizards didn't notice that job is currently for green...
 
Hydromorph Stinger Worm

Iím going to bypass the fact that this card is a Parasite Worm, because Iím well aware that it could be Ultracide Worm, but Iím here to review Stinger Worm, which on itís own, is a downright horrible card.

For a while I was actually using this card, trying to prove it was good. Unfortunately, itís no Onslaughter Triceps. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Mechanics of tribute summoning is horrible, and one a handful actually get played in that game, and those oneís all have some awesome effect. Stinger Worm is just a vanilla 5000 creature with a horrible drawback.

Now, late game when some of your blockers outlive their usefulness, they can still block. If you still have an Immortal Baron Vorg on the field, it can still break shields, or evolve. Stinger Worm isnít worth sacrificing a creature. The speed of a 5000 creature may have meant something versus mono-light decks when the only set out was the first, but since then, it hasnít meant a thing.

In draft, not quite as horrible, but still equally bad.

Constructed - 1.5

Limited - 2
 
Stegyman Stinger Worm

Man, what's with Darkness and worms?..

Stinger Worm: Darkness Creature, 3-Mana, 5000 Attack. I know you're interested. When you put this card into play you have to destroy one of your creatures. Ouch.

Is this card good? I personally think Bone Spider is a much better card as it too is a 3-for-5000 creature but doesn't destroy anything once it gets into play. If you wanted another creature like Bone Spider then run Stinger Worm; otherwise, Bone Spider > Stinger Worm.

Pros: only 3-Mana, stays in play until destroyed, 5000 Attack

Cons: destroys creature

I say, play Bone Spider other Stinger Worm, unless you have some strange fancy for Worms o_O In Limited this card is a lot better, as a 5000 Attack creature is pretty hefty.

Tournament: 2/5

Limited: 3/5
