Autochthon

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 really exciting.

CONSTRUCTED: 1.5
CASUAL: 2.5
LIMITED: 2.0

Um...if you combo with a bunch of tokens, maybe...?

Yeah. I'm not going to even worry much about this card.

And taking the award for the highest casting cost fat-arse in the set is....*drumroll*...Autochthon Wurm!!! 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.

Autochthon Wurm - Rare - Ravnica

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.

Ratings:
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, and humoungous

Autochthon Wurm

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.

Ratings:
Constructed~3
Casual~3
Limited~2.7
