Statiscally, Nadal and Borg are the best players on clay, but I think Thomas Muster at his peak, which wasn't long in terms of longevity, was the best clay court player.

As Muster is my all-time favourite player, I'm somewhat biased, but during his peak on clay, if he wasn't beating down his opponents, he'd dig so deep that he'd win matches on willpower. He saved a lot of match points in clay court matches during his peak, and he turned these matches around in his favour so often.
