What's your favorite creature card in Magic?
Mike Turian: My favorite creature is Spitting Slug. Preacher comes in a close second. As you can probably guess, I started playing Magic during The Dark. Green and white have always been my favorite colors.
I really enjoyed playing Spitting Slug (a 1GG 2/4) in tournament Magic. It doesn't have the beefy stats of most creatures, but the ability to turn a "last striker" into a creature with first strike sent many Ball Lightnings to their slightly early death. I played a deck called "Slugageddon" in quite a few Pro Tour Qualifiers, and multiple people qualified with the deck. The deck didn't have Armageddon in it, but the name intimidated people!
I love taking a Magic card that most others dismiss and finding the perfect deck for that card. Spitting Slug filled that role perfectly.
