Certainly an interesting little bug.  It's kinda like the new Ball Lightning, only in some ways better, and in some, worse.  It gives red the ability to hit very hard for a final shot, but at the cost of army decimation.  Then again, when has red cared about anything other than repeated shots to the dome?  Okay.  The problem is, you sac 4 goblins, then it gets bounced.  That sucks.  It's got it's weaknesses, but I think on the whole, in the "Goblin Sligh", this is a card definitely worth looking at and makes for a solid kill card.  Even at a 3/3 haste, it's not terrible, and saccing 1 Goblin to make it a 5/5 haste trample makes it more than formidable.

In limited, if you can support the heavy red, it's nice.  Not as bombalicious, but gets the job done just the same.

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 4
Current Price:


Clickslither seems to be one of the options for the 4 drop in the current Sligh deck, the other options being Blistering Firecat and Goblin Goon.  A 5/5 with trample is nothing to sneeze at, but then again, neither is a 7/1 trampler or a 6/6 on turn 4.  I think the choice will be determined by playtesting, and by regional differences in the metagame.

In limited, if you've got the goblin thing going, along with heavy red, he's worth the slot. He's a mana intensive 3/3 for 4 anyhow, and probably a decent sell at the end of your draft.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4

Wednesday - Clickslither
The third of the creatures vying for the 4 casting cost slot in Sligh. Unfortunately, this is no good unless you have a lot of goblins. I'd play 4 Firecat first, and Goons if I wanted more, and I would never want more than 6-7 at this slot, so this loses out. Not to say this isn't good, just that there are better cards at this casting cost.
In limited, if you have 4+ goblins and were base red, I'd play this.
Constructed: 2.75
Limited: 4

Haste and 3 toughness makes this guy dangerous in limited, and if you've got
a couple of goblins he can be a finisher too... if you play him on turn 4
maybe a quick finisher.  A new staple in sligh, obviously.
constructed 3.3
limited 3.2


Clickslither is really an interesting card. In my mind it is much superior to Ball Lightning in that it is less vulnerable to burn. The problem is that in many matches it can be an all or nothing card. You sac your creature advantage and hope they don’t have any tricks. Still I like it and it has potential for big beats.


Constructed – Is it the 4 drop for Sligh? Maybe – 3.85


Limited – Not so many Goblins here but even so it is still a decent creature, too bad about the 3 color specific though – 3.25

> This takes the 5 and 6 slots as Blistering Firecats in goblin sligh.  Clickslither is a bit more stable than the kitty, but it just doesn't have the explosiveness (or cool art).
> Ltd:  A 3/3 hasted creature for 4cc can definitely catch  your opponent off guard and if you have a couple extra goblins cluttering up your side of the board, feed them to Clickslither for a little extra kick.
> Constructed:  3.5
> Limited: 3.5
