Weekly Card Review (WCR8)

This is a new series of articles where I will review a card from the latest set every week and its influences in constructed Standard, from the top mythic down to common cards that people might be ignoring their full potential. Between each review I will show a example of a deck where that card could fit. Please feel free to add more ideas and discuss the cards on each week!

 Primal Surge
What if?... yes we all though of it. Can we build a deck around Primal Surge and drop the whole deck into the battlefield in one turn and just win? That's what we're going to find out this week. 
Mana Ramping in standard is not the greatest without zen block and sorceries/instants but we can still get it done with Sphere of suns/solemn simulacrum/primeval titan and so on.
With this sorcery going through there are countless ways to win, from ETB (enter the battlefield) trigger creatures such as Massacre wurm, to a horde of creatures including Urabrask the Hidden and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or simply a Laboratory Maniac, a Spellskite and a draw card mechanism on a creature or planeswalker such as jace/garruk to get that precious win!

Be tuned to see what we can make of it on part 2!
