This guy must really hate his parents, I mean don't tell me you wouldn't hate them if they named ya Slug. o.0 Can you imagine how much going to school would suck? My theory is that Slug was a great and super nice Namekian but all the years of name calling and teasing during his school years are what drove him to the dark path.

[[Yes, I know I'm all sorts of weird ~__~]]

Standard

As we all know his level 1 is a really great ally because if you build your deck with him in mind you can gain 1 personality level per Combat. O.O Yup that's right, his level one power can still be used if he's an ally. According to a lot of players anger has been dead for a long time but we'll just have to see what the Slug has to say about that. ^.^

Rating 3.25

Tuff Enuff

His level one power is not that great in this format but his level 3 is pretty good in the Namekian regeneration decks but Dying Planet just eats this deck up besides it's pretty easy to stop too. A early game Black Scout Manuever for Aura Clash Clash/Are you Tuff Enuff can do it or just geting hiting Land in Pain and droping a Dying Planet.

Monday - Lord Slug 1-3 MP - CCPP

Hmm. Well theres now 4 namekians that can play namekian tokui-waza which is okay. Always nice to see something new. Lord Slug is built for namekian style decks obviously. His level 2 is okay but his level 3 is by far the strongest ive seen in ways of regeneration. His level 3 allows you when shuffling cards back into your deck you are allowed to shuffle double back. So Dende Dragonball 5 can now shuffle back 10 instead of 5 for example. Since namekian has mass regeneration qualities this card can seriously be a pain in the =/. Imagine namekian fist smash being successful and doing 9 life cards of damage. Youll be able to shuffle back 18 cards back into your deck which can be so great if you lost that FIR (Frieza is Ready) from an energy attack. His level 1 is very evil as an ally. Since it says when you control 3 dbs of the same set gain a personality level. It didnt take long for a combo to form. With a combo of unexpected allies, battle pausing and Red King Colds observation you easily jump 3 levels with lord slug. I dont feel like typing out the complex combo so you figure it out. :P Anyway Lord slug can prove to be one powerful namekian in the CCPP but compared to Cell, I think Cell still reigns surpreme in namekian decks.

Lord Slug :

My favorite no doubt, Slug won me Nationals Tuff Enuff. But that's where he should stay, in Tuff Enuff. I like him as an ally for gaining a level in standard, but his level 1 and 3 powers (screw that horrible level 2) are made for TE fighting. The level 3 is just out of control, and I've already designed a few broken combos with it. So, as long as you build him in the right deck in the right format, Lord Slug will bring you victory. 

Standard : 1.5/5 
TE : 4/5
