Reasons I love this card:
1) The humor in this card probably trumps all the others in this set. It's a skull-squid and that flavor text is priceless.
2) it's a 1/1 for 1 with a split cost, making it playable in 2 different colors. It's ability is pretty sweet yet it's not a game-changer.
3) it's a zombie, so it gets to bask in all the zombie-love from the last block.

5/5 from me

This is a good example of a great card. Scavenge {0} is impressive on a T1 drop. When you need that +1/+1 counter later it can really help. I'd personally let it sleep in the yard for most of the game then bring it out on a big beater when my opponent least expects it.

Interesting. It's basically Arcbound Worker in B/G. 1/1 creature that dies, and you can stick a +1/+1 counter on something else. However, the Worker can only select artifact creatures, and Slitherhead's +1/+1 counter can be delayed if you don't have any other creatures. Not a bad 1-drop at all!

Actually, huh, I just realized you can use Scavenge to put +1/+1 counters on any creature, not just your own. Might be a plausible trick against Unleash decks.

Lastly: I'm going to ask the resident card modifier artist to make me a Waylon Slithers.

Plants vs Zombies? It's the same card!

Slitherhead? +1/+1 counters? Get it?

Odd how this gets Scavenge for free while every other Scavenge cost seems to be operating on the policy of "If they can cast it, it isn't big enough."

Amazing Combo with Lotleth troll for discard engine.

I like to imagine that "scavenging" +1+1 counter is just picking the skull up and setting on the new creature's shoulder.

Just a wonderful card. Lotleth Troll works just great alongside, but even without the cruel discard then scavenge mechanic, he's a solid little chump blocker that nobody is scared to lose.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
