Simic Gets Lands-Based Legendary Ooze In Slogurk, The Overslime In Innistrad: Midnight Hunt

New legendary Ooze rewards you for your lands going to the graveyard.

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Noxious, check out a legendary Ooze from Innistrad: Midnight Hunt — Slogurk, the Overslime!

Slogurk starts things off as a three-mana 3/3 with trample. From there, things get quite interesting.

Whenever a land card is put into your graveyard from anywhere, put a +1+1 counter on Slogurk, the Overslime.

Remove three +1+1 counters from Slogurk: Return it to its owner’s hand.

When Slogurk leaves the battlefield, return up to three target land cards from your graveyard to your hand.

An almost inverse landfall ability allows Slogurk to gain +1+1 counters, making it a legitimate trampling threat, but also giving it the chance prevent it from dying. While returning your creature to your hand isn’t the best answer to removal spells, it’s better than putting Slogurk in the graveyard. However, when you reach the point where Slogurk can return to your hand, you get the lands that have managed to grow it back as well. Now if you have a discard outlet or sacrifice outlet, Slogurk can protect itself once again.

What do you think of Slogurk, the Overslime? Is this legendary Ooze a powerhouse in the making or more of a combo piece?
