Could you tell me if the action can be used several times in the same turn? In addition, is it authorized to active an action on a exhausted card?

The action can be used as many times as you can afford it. Unless the action requires exhaust as a cost (such as "Exhaust Slavering Gug and pay 4") it can be used even if the Slavering Gug is exhausted. So you can, for example, commit it to stories on your turn, and then choose to wound targets after your opponent commits.

Again! Seeing as I've Just built a funny Yog/Shub  Polar/Dream Land Gug Deck- why isn't this thing a Gug!? This really needs to be fixed!!! Not to mention, Granted a bit of toughness. It costs five for Yog-Sosthoth's sake!!! And its ability, though very good- costs a whopping four!!!! At the very last, give it toughness +1! Poor thing!


FAQ 4.0 - Errata

Should have the Gug subtype.

Is this character of any use at all, considering the other Gug and character options available?

I occasionally play a game of single core cthulhu, and in that context this card it sweet.

I would also choose it in a draft.

But I haven't ever seen it in a constructed deck in any of my play groups.
