This looks like a fun case of "Rules as Written" vs "Rules as Implied". As written, makes sense, since finish off doesn't actually deal damage. As implied, seems a little silly that what is basically a spell immunity card can still be destroyed by actions.

I'm not a fan of the slight difference between Mage Slayer and stuff like Nahagliiv. One or the other would be my preference - and I prefer the not targeting option.
Technically that makes sense right? finish off doesn't damage the creature it destroys it.
The entire point of this creature is that it's safe for you to put an item on it and not get -1'd by an opponents removal spell.
Does Piercing Javelin work on this card? If targeted removal works, you might as well just run Jerall Forager in this card's place and call it a day.
