Erik's Random card 7/5/2011

This card started off in design as a nice uncommon.

When CARDNAME is put into a graveyard from play, draw a card.

Ken Nagle did not like this card; it is a fatty, but it about replacing itself with another card. However other players loved it, and it got pushed:

When CARDNAME is put into a graveyard from play, you may draw two cards.

This was pretty crazy, as sealed decks might have two them.

It got pulled back to a reasonable level:

When CARDNAME is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may gain 7 life and draw a card.

This was powerful when it died. However either gaining 7 or drawing a card is a nice reward, so rather than give it all at once, we give you two fun rewards.

That's about it. We (well except Ken), loved the card, and found it was a fun part of "battlecruiser Magic", while Ken thought this was more "incremental value Magic". He has his point, but I like the card :)

This guy gave me so much trouble during limited. One of the best wurms I have ever seen.

The fact that this is uncommon shocks me.

Heavy green requirement, but makes up for it by being totally house in limited. 4.5/5

Does anyone have any ideas as to why a wurm would cause its summoner to gain life? Doesn't make sense to me. The draw-a-card bit could be explained as being an item found in the ever-hungry wurm's gullet after it's dead.

One of my favorite creatures from Rise, for certain. I was so bummed at the Prerelease sealed event about not having gotten any big Eldrazi until I had it pointed out to me that I had three of these guys and two Overgrown Battlements to ramp up to them. There are arguably other, better 7-drops in green, but this guy is still VERY strong, leaves one hell of an impression on your opponent, and won't break the bank should one want a playset. Pelakka Wurm will always be a card dear to my heart.

THIS is a card you want to get in Rise of the Eldrazi limited.

Dies to remov- ...Wait, what do you mean I can't just terminate it and laugh? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!

Green still ramps mana like crazy, so the casting cost is no turnoff for me. Excellent uncommon green beatstick here.

I can definitely see this guy crawling out of a Birthing Pod
