As we head into the Onslaught prerelease this weekend, we'll look back at a couple of the surprise hits of Odyssey. Roar of the Wurm and Braids, Cabal Minion turned out to be two great cards from that set. As a sort of flashback, we'll look at their design sketches from the Style Guide.
The Wurms from Roar of the Wurm were originally concepted as "getting bigger as they ate artifacts." Although that idea wasn't used, you can see in the original sketch that one was shown eating a Chimeric Idol. The basic look of the Wurms stayed the same.
