Well heck, for its rarity this seems like it could do something in the right deck.

It's not actually that bad. For 8 CMC you get 8/8 combined P/T with trample, and that's worst scenario, if you don't have anything better to populate. It is expensive though, that much is true.

Ehhhh....
The problem for me is that the 8 mana truly destroys this card.
By the time I have 8 mana in most of my Limited games, I'm either too far behind for me to even hope that this card will help me come back,
Or I'm winning so hard and this'll most likely just be clogging up my hand.
Good sideboard if you're going against a stall deck that your 3/3 Centaurs can't overcome,
But even as a limited bomb it's just too expensive.

Not too shabby. Eight mana hurts, though. Populate prefers big tokens to small ones, so this is definitely up its alley.

In Limited, assuming you have some way of ramping (and you ought to in Green), this card will swing games in your favor. Still, for 8-mana I generally prefer a game winning card--but as a common that's probably too much to ask for.

...why are Teysa and Isperia chatting? That has some worrying implications.

Could do more for its cost, but a 4/4 with trample is still pretty damn good, plus populating another one, plus parallel lives and talrand, sky summoner... Its got potential it just costs so much! honestly if you've got 8 mana you may want to do something more significant with it, but given my previous explanation it may be better in a talrand/token deck than armada wurm. Never more than 2. Makes me think of doing a U/G/R with goblin electromancer, talrand and the likes.... Im just in love with the populate mechanic currently. This card has potential, for sure.

It may see draft play, but idk how much selesnya standard play. Sad, they could've just made it cost 1 less and it would seem more appealing up front.

Return to Ravnica seems to have plenty of awesome expensive spells, but no real way to ramp into them.

This is expensive, but man is this good. Making trampling rhino tokens sounds good in itself but the possibility to make something better with populate is truly fascinating to this mighty pro.
