Very disappointed by Voices - I was hoping for something more to back up the Nyxathid. Archers and slime are both okay. I can see myself dropping the Ooze to devour a creature before my opponent can mince it, but only in limited and there are many cards I'd pick over it. The archers could provide a little amusement in limited as well, but again, there are better uncommons to choose from.

Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from play you may put X 0/1 Chump Artifact Creature tokens into play where X is that creature's Power. "Soon the Pointless Saviour will come...*splat*" - 1/1 Vanilla's last words.
Voices from the Void- it's a Mind Sludge for domain, probably unplayable at 5cc, if it had costed 4cc I would have tried to abuse it. Limited solid as it should usually hit for at least 3 cards.
Gluttonous Slime- I like this alot for limited, it allows you to fizzle a removal spell by playing this at instant speed and devouring. Can also be a nice surprise blocker(alpha strike and then flash this in devouring a creature or 2 to screw with your opponents combat math). Constructed unplayable but probably only by 1 mana.
Sacellum Archers- even with a lack of RW a 2/3 for 2G is solid in this bear heavy format. in a naya deck though it's a brilliant reusable removal option which can block 1 bear and shoot down a 2nd at the same time, high pick in naya. Constructed too expensive on the ability end.
Interesting for limited, thats all. Voices from the void is realy nice only when you cast in in turn 4 or 5 making the oponent to discard his bombs/pumps/answers, in the lategame they only have 1-2 cards max. I like the flash + devour but a bigger body (3/3) or a devour 2 would make him more interesting. The archers are solid.
The Slime seems interesting for limited. It would have worked well with Unearth if you could play that as an instant. It can be a 3/3 for 2G, but not on turn 3 when you want it. It can fizzle removal spells, so if they had something which had a cantrip effect or otherwise it could be ok. Still, seems only so-so and good in extremely unusual cases.
I actually think there are some constructed applications for the Flash Devour guy. If elfball gets infested against Fae, Volcanic Fallout against Red, etc. and you flash him in and immediately beat for a ton when you untap? He's like a blaze in many ways. I think it could definitely be boarded to fight mass removal.
The flash devour critter is something that longed to see printed Global burn? Fine, after damage, flash Slime, devour the dying.
Combat? Ok, I'll block and kill your guys plus I'll got a fairly powerful new guy.
Sacellum Archers mean that the cycle of critters with main shard color in CC and both secondary in activation spans also to the rest of the shards. I wonder what's the Bant one. I guess Aerie Mystics... sounds Wwith UG activation cost.

Yeeeaaaahhh, riiiiggghhhh... do you have those TP reports??? a 2/3 for a 3cc card, in general, is terrible for green. This cards only saving grace is what it can do. And remember, a card is called a 'bear' because it has a 2cc & is a 2/2 creature.
Hate to nit-pick, but it makes you out to be naive, and we do not want to give the vultures here (excluding me, I'm just an upright citizen pointing ou a mistake before a real shmuck tries to eat you whole) a chance to pick at the bones of an already wounded, harmless creature.
Um...Machius was obviously talking about limited. The last sentence of that paragraph (which you omitted in your quote) was "Constructed too expensive on the ability end.".
A 2/3 is good in a bear heavy environment because it can eat bears (a 2/2 for 2 mana, in case you'd forgotten). Add to that it's ability to shoot bears, and it is obviously very good in limited.
I'm not too familiar with Shards limited, but looking over the spoilers of both SoA and Conflux there are a lot of good bears at common, so the claim "bear heavy environment" seems to stand up.
I'm not sure what you were trying to achieve with your post, but it rebounded somewhat. I'm just an upright citizen pointing out a mistake before a real shmuck tries to eat you whole
Hey, look, I found one of the vultures I was reffering too. Hey, FISH, you fonzenoon (confused? Go watch Caddyshack 2, then take a bubble bath), it was 6:30 in the a.m., obvious the lack of stimulating caffeine altered my judgement. But even in my sleepy state, I knew someone would try to pick apart my mistake. I did it 'cuz I was just trying to softly explain what I thought was a mistake in judgement. You did it out of spite.
I like the slime a lot. Great for limited to save your creatures from mass removal, and a lot of fun in casual for the same reason. I hope we see more flash + devour. Archers are good in a Naya limited deck. Doesn't die to magma spray or infest and provides nice board control.
