Deadly Insect on crack.

Don't be fooled, this thing did its fair share of smashing. It saw play in a good many competitive decks of the time.
In the context in which it existed, lowering CMC and/or raising power would have been problematic. Plus, its worth noting that this has an incredibly flexible mana cost when compared to a hybrid like Boggart Ram-Gang, which can really only be supported by a red, green, or red/green deck.
Also, love the name Cap'n Tickles :)

closer to a spider than an insect type. and spiders are ticklier too.

I object! Solifuges are not insects! (They're arachnids. Not spiders, but close.)

Was a really powerful card, and one that I absolutely loved. Too often this is a Lightning Blast to the face first, followed by the opponent's desperated attempt to find something to block it. All its power came from its shroud - the safest way to deal with a Ball Lightning is to save a Bolt for it, but the Bolt would stay dead against Giant Solifuge. Blockers have always been the poor man's choice, as they can be burned or even Frenzied away, but they are the only choice when it comes to stopping this beast. And then it's 4 to the dome, threatening to at least trample over with another 4, and that's when they do manage to get a decent blocker.

While he's suffered a bit under power creep, Cap'n Tickles still has one heck of a sucker punch. He actually would have been pretty great if he was reprinted in Zendikar, since he one-shots Jace 2.0 and can't be bounced. :D

Pair this up with Wolfir Silverheart. An 8/5 that can trample each turn.

Awesome card, and Srhoud makes up for the fact that it only has 1 toughtness.

Still the only creature you can play in monored with either shroud or hexproof (other than Drill-Skimmer)

I am in love with that nickname. Cap'n Tickles is going in a deck even if it kills me. And it won't. It'll just kill other people.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
