Guys. You have to PAY for the thing even if you search for it, it's not free.

As for the cost, a 9/5 trampler for 7 would be good with nothing else, but the library search takes the cake. Get a Sylvan Ranger or a Cultivate later in the game? Drop it and play this dude. Pretty much no downside, as it survives all burn up to and including Flame Slash.

can activate mana abilities while you're casting the Wurm while you're searching your library.
Love that line! (its from the rulings)

Not only is it a beetstick its a beat stick you can play from out of absolutely nowhere. So cool. This guy probably has one of my favorite abilities in the game!

He's like the Spanish Inquisition.

Fun to flash him into play, but they'll learn to be wary when you leave a fetchland uncracked during their turn. This in itself is fun.

Adds "cantrip" to land searches. And by "cantrip" I mean "OH GOD WHERE DID THAT THING COME FROM AHHHHHH"

The best thing about this is that it does cool stuff just by being in your library. If you just run one then you have a lower risk of drawing him and just as much chance to cast.

Also: Wheel of Sun and Moon

Pretty neat, not totally broken but always fun. I think a deck with him as a centerpiece would be really cool.

(WotC Employee 1): Hey! Does anyone have an idea to make Demonic Tutor possibly better and cheaper?
(WotC Employee 2): How about create a creature that can be cast if you're looking through your library?
(WotC Employee 1): Genius Derek! Let's do it! It'd make so much sense!
(WotC Employee 3): Yeah! And then we'll make a creature WITH Demonic Tutor on it, and make it a flying demon!
(2): That's F**king stupid, you idiot. What kind of genius would make that?
(1): Yeah, Jim. Go away. No one wants you here. Ok, so now, lets give it... Trample!... And make it... a Wurm! Yeah!

And that's how Rune-Scarred Demon was created.
Wait, what? Hmm?

I'm pretty sure this is the only card in the game that generates card advantage just by being in your deck. Worth it for that reason alone.

Effectively has flash since you can play him while landcycling or casting a land-fetching instant like Harrow
