These are all good suggestions. Thank you!

Last_Laugh I've been runnong Pestilence but I'm having a little bit of a hard time Mana wise. I might be able to ding for three or four but rarely above that because of the white and red Mana I have. Do you have a work around for this? Blanket of Night , Black Market , Smothering Tithe or something else?

Out:

Kaya's Ghostform Epic Downfall Tomb Robber Soot Imp Pack Rat Cadaver Imp

In: Insidious Dreams - Helps assemble combos

Animate Dead - cheap recursion that should've been in there

Night's Whisper - cheap hand refill

Necropotence - Well I'll succumb to goodstuffs here.

Black Market - things die and profit from board wipes.

Coldsteel Heart - is very needed

Saprolings! Nice build. You might like these: Keen Sense (super strong on Slimefoot. draw all the cards!), Snake Umbra , Illusionist's Bracers , Earthcraft , Seedborn Muse , Black Market , Wilderness Reclamation , Neko-Te , Perilous Forays (Sporemound's other BFF), Eternal Thirst , Fungal Sprouting , Life and Limb (combos with Sporemound + sac outlet, or scapeshift. decent on it's own too since it lets your saprolings tap for ), Fungal Plots , Pitiless Plunderer , Fallen Ideal

king-saproling- I'm so glad you like the deck! It's one of my favorites to play and I appreciate the suggestions.

Herald of Leshrac is one I've not heard of, and I like it a lot for disrupting opponents and gaining free mana! If your playgroup is cool with you thieving lands, go for it.

Marsh Flitter is a token generator and a free sac outlet. Huh, I'll keep an eye on it for future.

Transmogrifying Licid + Dross Scorpion + Goblin Welder is a hilarious combo and I wish you luck in pulling it off and destroying everything your opponents hold dear with Meteor Golem

Cathodion requires a sac outlet to get value, we prefer to have ETBs like Priest of Urabrask since a sac outlet won't always be available.

Grinning Ignus only works at sorcery speed and returns itself to our hand, which we don't want. I like where your head is at for mana generation, though.

Carnival of Souls is a fascinating and risky way to squeeze in more flips. It does put restriction on our timing as we have to use the mana when it is created, and is a nonbo with our infinites, as they often involve putting infinite creatures into play, which would drain us at the same rate as our opponents. I think you could try it and it would be a coin flip whether it won or lost you individual games just by itself.

Thran Turbine is a dead flip with Grenzo, and I'm not sure if it's impactful enough to include, even though it would be a Sol Ring worth of mana for flipping

Braid of Fire , Black Market , Imperial Recruiter , Mana Echoes , and Teferi's Puzzle Box are all cards I have considered playing, and would certainly be reasonable inclusions! I have not included them because I don't currently own them and they are expensive.

Mindmoil would not be a good inclusion because we don't want to play spells from our hand if we can at all avoid it. It does allow us to stack the bottom of our library, but it's 5 mana do nothing, and scry to the bottom if we have spare mana after that.

Vessel of Endless Rest seems unimpactful for 3 mana and we have creatures and artifacts that do the same thing repeatably, which is what we're looking for to win.

Junktroller is great for recursion, but unfortunately it taps to activate, making it hard to go infinite. Spending the mana to activate Epitaph Golem or Reito Lantern is honestly just more reliable and abusable than tapping, as we do not run untappers.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is a spicy include, though I have chosen not to do so because he only gets pumped off of casting, and doesn't contribute to a combo. He would be useful for getting black creatures out of our hand, and I assume combos with Blood Celebrant , but we have 1 card that performs that combo by itself: Treasonous Ogre .

Blood Artist I've gone back and forth on. It absolutely is worth an include, but I find that we have enough payoffs once infinite is achieved so I replaced it with redundancy in other places, like token generation

Sifter of Skulls has 4 power, which automatically excludes it from this build. It is important to get Grenzo out early to start building the value engine, so we cast him for X=1.

Petravark could work as targeted land destruction. We already have Avalanche Riders but if you need more this could be worth including

Here is the primer I took my inspiration from. I highly recommend reading it to get the general philosophy and lines of the deck! https://www.mtgnexus.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=22095
