Welcome to Librarium Online!
Phlegm; large blast template fun!
Tongue; I need extra tank-killing power!
Neither; I like to keep cost at a minimum!
Both; I like to have all my options available!
I usually use Phlegm, although I have recently experimened with Tongue, and am now considering using him with no upgrades. I was curious how others tend to equip them.
I find tongue to not be worth it. At BS3 its going to miss 1/2 the time, besides Soul Grinders are S10 from DCCW, if you want it to kill a tank, just assault with it
Tongue isn't worth it at BS3. Phlegm is a great bargain, but running a naked Grinder works well too. They've got fleet and put out a bunch of S10 shots. Against anything short of an MC or Dread they can beat face all day.

tongue nabbed me a win in a 750 point game but that's about it. I prefer the 160 point walking Battle cannon (that's what phlegm is really.) It eats hordes for breakfast!
Phlegm, it keeps them cheap enough while beeing able to do a lot of damage.
Haven't played with any yet, but I'd go phlegm, as I deal with a lot of troops and blast templates are always good for lulz.
id go with phlegm just becuase the turn i DS i get a battle cannon, then the rest of the time i like to be in melee
I take the phlegm just for the blast and it suffers the least from the BS. The tongue would be handy for Landraiders as the hitting on 4s and 6s in melee sucks to deal with. Though needing a 4 and then 5+ is hardly any better to deal with one unit. Taking both is way too expensive.
My upcoming blog in the works:
I usually run two in larger games (2k and above) and i always kit em out with phlegm, it just eats troops alive. I rarely use his flame temp. weapon, and i must admit 90% of the time i forget to shoot his 6 shooter... (you can tell how often i use em as i don't know there names and im to lazy to look them up )
