"Please please PLEASE just reprint Yavimaya Wurm already. Its at least playable."

Seems as though your plea has been answered. Yavimaya Wurm has been confirmed for Magic 2011.

Classic card. Makes good use in my mono-green deck full of fatties.

The flavor text should read:
"The most terrifying thing about the Craw Wurm is its huge mana cost for lackluster body and lack of abilities."

Early sets were hit-and-miss. Some cards missed by being too overpowered. Others, like this one...go in the opposite direction.

The most terrifying thing about the craw wurm is probably the horrible mana cost it requires as it speeds through the forests' mana pool.

At least it makes my inner 10-year-old giggle with glee.

Looking at this card mathematically, it has a total of 10 points, distributed among it's power and toughness (6+4=10.).
If we redistribute those points so that they fit along of a curve of "average power level creatures", this could easily be said to be equivalent to a 5/5. Not what you'd expect in green for 4GG, especially considering the colour requirements, even at common. If I recall Wizards' design philosophies correctly, white & green are roughly tied for "best creature colours" with black at 3rd (No, really! Heck, why do you think black got the vanilla 2/2 for 1C that is Walking Corpse before red got some equivalent?), red is 4th best for creatures & blue is worst. Keep in mind, this is my understanding of Wizards' design philosophies. It is only my opinion that they are correct, and I don't believe they should be true.

Anyway, even at common, I think a green creature costed at 4GG could stand to be better. A 4/4 would likely be balanced at 4G, as au... (see all)

@gman92

That card is a rare from Zendikar. This card is a common first printed in Alpha.

That's like saying "Instead of playing Coral Merfolk, you could play Time Walk."

Or even in the latest set: "Why play Raging Poltergeist when you could play Malignus?"

'Nuff said?

It's a sad day when this classic creature of stompingness from my childhood has been outclassed by not a fellow wurm, elemental, or some other horror of the forests, but by a fox. Thank you Theros for Vulpine Goliath.

Not that I'm complaining, Foxes are great and need support. Still, I have fond memories of seeing Craw Wurm as the first card I saw in a booster pack back ages ago.

He can be OK in drft or sealed, but he's still booooooring. I love that he still has the Alpha flavour text though. Not many of those still around.
