I don't think anyone is getting that this card is almost strictly meant for Limited play. I grabbed a couple of these while drafting, and whenever one of these hit the battlefield it stayed there until it crushed my opponent. Scars has lots of removal options for artifacts but there's less it can do about nonartifact creatures. Even against Infect heavy opponents this beast will still stand long enough to see you to victory. Think of it as the Alpha Tyrranax for Besieged, yeah it costs one green more but Besieged has slowed the game enough that it isn't that much of a problem

Vorinclex is clearly a horrible dentist.

a vanilla 8/8 for 7 is powerful in limited if you can back it up. It demands blocking, virtually acting as repeatable removal. At the very least it pulls removal, saving your other creatures, at most it swings for 8 to the face.

Comparing the non-trample huge creatures to those with trample is too often reduced to: trample = better. People are less apt to block a big trampler, and they are magnets for removal. Non-tramplers are often passed up on removal in favor of chump blockers, effectively turning the creature itself into a multiple removal effect, as it kills the chumps.

Obviously in constructed cards like this are unplayable, at 7 mana a creature should be ending the game.

Phyrexia took Plated Slagwurm and made it worse. So much for compleation.

{sigh} Vorinclex...With or without teeth, why would it move on to a new kill IF IT WASN'T ACTUALLY HUNGRY? And a big enough meal should keep it satisfied for some time. What did you do, accelerate its metabolism ninefold?!

Venser was right about the Phyrexians (especially the ones freshly minted by the transfiguring oil?) not understanding nature at all. Vorinclex certainly doesn't understand what the point of eating is.

Eternal_Blue, it's that attitude that's killing Magic, not the designers. Just learn to appreciate the good cards, and the formats they're built for.

Jeez, you sound like a whimpering twelve year-old. Go back to Yu-Gi-Oh if that's how you're going to treat the game.

Vorniclex: "Hey guys, I yanked the teeth out of an Engulfing Slagwurm! Wanna see?"

Jin-Gitaxias: "...you ruined a perfectly good slagwurm."

Vorinclex: "No no, see, it goes faster now. Without teeth. I also painted some cool stripes on it."

Jin-Gitaxias: "How is it supposed to eat?"

Vorinclex: "Norn let me borrow her giant blender. I feed it Viridian Emissary smoothies."

Jin-Gitaxias: "That's the dumbest and most disgusting thing I've ever heard."

Vorinclex: ...*pokes Jin-Gitaxias in eye and runs*

Jin-Gitaxias: "GAAAHHH! I'll get you in ten turns, Vorinclex! You hear me? TEN TUUURNNNS!"

I don't know why everyone is complaining. This card is making me so nostalgic. :D

The flavour text is cool - I wish this had an ability to go with it, like Devour or "Quilled Slagwurm may block any number of creatures".

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
