I do like the artwork though. Still, that's small consolation. This slug deserves the salt treatment.

Puts your opponent on a twenty-turn clock, and requires only 5 mana to be unblockable every turn? I'm sold!
Actually, I do like the art. Lookit the eye-tentacle clubs!

I had almost forgotten about this horrible card... wow... can it get any slower?

This is why you should not run basic lands in your deck...

You forget you need a creature with razor boomerang!! And i think a giant slug may be good enough. Now you have a 2 card combo with the same effect as a single slug! :D:D:D

Historic. The very first unblockable creature.

The dual lands like Underground Sea counted (and still count) as basic land types, and back then there just weren't that many other nonbasic lands. If you weren't going mono-artifact, you were susceptible to one of the five landwalks.

Obviously "5: This creature is unblockable until end of turn" is not aggressively costed, even for its day... until you remember that you were required to run Homelands cards in many tournament formats of that time. Giant Slug plus Feast of the Unicorn was a serious late-game finisher.

If you ever play some kind of Old Cards Pauper game, run the slugfeast beast with Wall of Shadows and Will-o'-the-Wisp, both of which are nasty with Feast of the Unicorn. You could employ Drudge Skeletons and Unholy Strength to round... (see all)

Helix Pinnacle is better, but only for one reason.

It takes 102 mana to win with the Giant Slug, but only 101 with the pinnacle!

Solution: don't run basics. I switched to a nonbasic mana-base and I have yet to be defeated by Giant Slugs.

This card is overpowered. It can finish your opponent off all on its own! You only need to pump just 100 mana in it in total.

I knew this guy once who liked to **** with little kid by beating them to one life then playing this card to finish them off. It was worse then being killed by a Birds of Paradise.
