This is a geometric worm, not an exponential one! The phrase "exponential" seems to be used by many without understanding what it means.

The Devour X means the hellion's size grows geometrically:
1 --> 1² = 1
2 --> 2² = 4
3 --> 3² = 9
4 --> 4² = 16
5 --> 5² = 25

A true exponential worm would grow as e^x, such as:

1 --> e^1 = 3 (rounded up always)
2 --> e^2 = 8
3 --> e^3 = 21
4 --> e^4 = 55
5 --> e^5 = 149

Also, longs for trampling and hasting...

We have Wormsign, Muad'Dib!
The most glaring absences on Thromok are Haste and Trample, but it's not as if RedGreen doesn't have a way to give him those. Now, with that exponential growth and that-enchantment-that-doubles-counters, plus a swarm of tokens to munch on, you can get something huge. Why not add Pandemonium and Fling to the mix?

"I'll play Thromok the Insatiable and attack you with the power of MATHEMATICS!"

Also, obligatory Doubling Season mention, just because.

Well this will get stupid fast.

His planar deck is most disappointing. Adding in Grand Ossuary, Goldmeadow, and Immerstrum will be fun though.

Add asceticism, and maybe an enchantment or two then watch as a single tear rolls down your opponents cheek before old Thromok devours their hopes. Mmmmmmm hope.

Otherwise known as ThrOMNOMNOMNOMNOMok the Insatiable.

Mmmmm, saprolings. Delicious.

Actually, you spend five mana, sacrifice four creatures, and get a 16/16 with no further abilities. This guy is the exponential worm.

Eat all the creatures you just took with Insurrection in EDH.
Then feed him players.

Thunder-Thrash Elder costs 2 less mana, it's bigger or almost equal if you devour 4 or less creatures, only has one colour, it's non-legendary and it's also cheaper. Nevertheless, it has 4 stars and this card has 4,5 stars. I don't understand you.
