You've got to admire the people in the Card Comparisons thread who realised that Batterskull is strictly better than this. I mean, okay, this is awful, but the Batterskull comparison is just amusing.

Costs way too much. It should have had a cheaper bounce cost and a "comes into play" ability to actually make it functional.

Yeah, and it hasn't got Islandhome. WTF?

Palinchron's retarded cousin

Silly that they made this a rare. And that it costs so much.

A rare 4/4 for six mana should have something more than an overcosted bounce ability.
This is one of those rares which represent something rare; there aren't many sliptide serpents in Dominaria.

Dig the art. Surprised it didn't have islandwalk or something. The lack of evasion makes this a big waste of mana. By the time you and your opponent have access to 6 mana, a 4/4 just won't cut it, even if it can protect itself from removal to an extent.

@ Alextfish - This does not die to Artifact removal like Phyrexian Tribute, and Batterskull does

@ Kryptnyt: actually, I think that Palinchron is the retarded one. It's so stupid that you can honestly think that they didn't test it even for a second. This one may be overcosted, but I think that is as it is because of Palinchron, because they made a card so absurd that they had to penalize this in the next block. In other words, if Sliptide Serpent is bad, you have to blame Palinchron, not the Serpent...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
