2/5 for the zoologically responsible creature type. Don't cave to those insect tribal lobbyists, Wizards.

Not that they'd want this guy anyway. For five?!

why slug more slug
1- Slug is so much light than snail who have shell to copy slug technology.
2- The snail use the shell because is a f***ing f*get.
3- snail got crush so easy, and you can give the slug to ur dog chew and it ll still eat lettuce.
4- shell is MORE heavy than no shell.
5- some slug have internal shell because more evolved
6- Your cousin will not want to stay on your house to play slug.
7- If you trow the slug on the wall, the wall will go up.
8- Trow both on water and watch which will come up first.
over 9000- slug at mate will make a slimecord. The snail will show dribble.
10- All slug are hermaphrodite. Snail is too but because f*get
11 - slug is the name of a bullet. Snail means it is slow.
12 - Slug will eat carrion, slug dont give a f***
13- slug didn’t needed an upgrade. Slug is perfect

I love this card. Fantastic art and even the ridiculously overcosted ability fits. Do you know how hard it is to get slugs moving across any terrain unblocked? Just think of the effort this guy has to put in to get across a Plains or Mountain without being intercepted. That requires some serious magic. This is probably the fastest slug across a Plains after Rocket-Powered Turbo Slug.

Sure, it's hardly the best 1Black out there, but it's got style. What would you rather have, something boring like Blister Beetle or Ravenous Rats or a giant landwalking slug?

0.5 for the plain card but I'm giving it 2 for the art and flavor alone.

I really don't get how Wizards could be so paranoid about unblockability back then. Lightning bolt does an "unblockable" 3 damage for one mana. In order to get this card to do the same, you have have to pump seventeen mana into it over the course of four turns.

Potentially a Plainswalker... 5/5.

Why is a purportedly giant slug a 1/1?

Needs poisonous: 5 or something, then it could be Giant Poisonous Slug, very scary, slow but scary.

the cost of the ability is far too high, another example of Wizards' fear about Landwalk...

When I read the text for this card, I died a little inside. How little? Oh, about the amount that Giant Slug can deal to me by paying 5 and waiting a turn.

Well, 1/1 is giant for a slug... 1/1 is the baseline for an unskilled human fighter (think Eager Cadet). This slug can kill savannah lions. When was the last time you heard of a slug that could fight a lion?
