Acidic Slime

Creeping Mold earned its fame as a supplement to R/G land destruction decks, and as a Naturalize that would never want for a target since it can hit a land if need be. Of course, as a land destruction spell, converted mana cost is crucial, and the fact that this costs 3GG makes it very clumsy to use in that regard. However, if you played Creeping Mold as artifact/enchantment hate that was still useful if your opponent had neither, Creeping Mold on a land never felt that great either. Acidic Slime solves that issue by being a creature, and one with deathtouch at that. This card can kill an artifact, enchantment, or land, AND a creature in combat. And with no real land destruction deck in Standard, and every other format still having access to Creeping Mold anyway, that extra killing power makes it well worth the extra one mana it costs over Creeping Mold.

Acidic Slime

This reminds me a little of the green slime from that old TV show You Can't Do That On Television, except more destructive. Only a little more, though. I always liked Creeping Mold, and I played with it even without the bonus 2/2 creature. Said creature just makes the deal even better, especially since it makes it reusable (hello, Reveillark!).

Acidic Slime

 

Constructed: This card show have seen some play for Standard, but it may be a little to slow at the moment. Or people are not giving it a trial run.

 

Casual & Multiplayer: Cool card that can fit into some casual land destruct decks we have in these parts.

 

Limited: If it only flew. Top pick in my books. Good thing it is a uncommon and the double green makes it hard to splash in a 3 or more color deck, unless green was the majority. There are several artifacts and enchantments to are dangerous in M10 sealed and draft. Lands, not really worth it. Good thing there are now manlands.

 

Overall a great card. Oh yeah it has Deathtouch!

Today's card of the day is Acidic Slime an interesting card that can
easily net you a two for one card advantage as it destroys a card coming
into play and will most likely take another card on the way off the
battlefield.

In Constructed the mana cost is a little on the high side, hurting the
playability, and the weak 2/2 body doesn't help a great deal.

In Casual this is about the same as in constructed, a bit too expensive
and not enough of a fun factor to really make a big impact. The Ooze
type doesn't have support and in fact has one card that won't work on
other Ooze creatures thanks to Ooze Garden.

In Limited everything changes for the better on this card. Two for one
is an excellent deal and five mana isn't even that bad for the format.
Very much worth playing in a Green deck and from experience an excellent
combo with Elvish Piper if you happen to have one. If you are already
going Green in booster draft, consider this a higher pick. In sealed
any deck with enough Green mana to support the double cost should be
running this card.

In Multiplayer the Deathtouch can keep a large creature away for a
while, but otherwise not much is different here from Constructed and Casual.
