Deathspore Thallid Discussion

Landonius on Vegetables [Saprolings]

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thanks for the +1!

I had considered Pallid Mycoderm early on and Im not completely sure why I decided to leave it out. Maybe I got scared away by the 4 CMC but yeah Mycoderm definitely has good utility in this deck, specifically late game. Do you have any suggestions for what to take out for maybe 2-3? Perhaps a pump spell or something because they are both technically finishers? Its worth a test.

A Lumithread effect would be good for the mainboard I guess I was just thinking that most decks I would be playing against dont mainboard sweepers like Electrickery or Holy Light. But its definitely worth consideration.

I did initially have Fists of Ironwood in the main but I eventually removed it because the token production was not repeatable. My reason for playing saprolings and not Abzan Tokens is because of the spells that can give me more saprolings every single turn. (things like Selesnya Evangel, Sprout Swarm, and the Thallids) The tribal synergies with Echoing Courage and Deathspore Thallid are the other reason. Maybe I was using it wrong. What would you suggest taking out for the play set?

As for Gruesome Fate, I dont know if it is much better than Harsh Sustenance. The only real difference is the in the casting cost. Other than that, Harsh Sustenance is instant speed, hits creatures, and gives life gain as well. Whereas, Gruesome Fate is sorcery-speed, only hits the opponent, and provides no life gain. Not worth the switch to me.

Thanks for the suggestions! Ill definitely be testing Pallid Mycoderm in the future. Let me know if you decide to test it yourself.

I'm surprised by the lack of Pallid Mycoderm. Sacrificing Saprolings for team pump? Yes please! Also works well with Deathspore Thallid.

I would actually main a Lumithread Field/Spidersilk Armor or two to protect all your 1/1s.

Fists of Ironwood is a great follow-up to a soul sister; the trample isn't important, but having a Dragon Fodder-esque spell for Saprolings seems invaluable.

Gruesome Fate is probably the card you'd want to replace Harsh Sustenance with.

Awesome list!

Nice Deck.

If you want to go in two colored approach there are some nice interactions between some cards you already use there:

Sprout Swarm & other Convoke-Cards: Nettle Sentinel, Thermo-Alchemist & Zephyr Scribe, Midnight Guard

Bramble Elemental: Ghitu Firebreathing, Galvanic Arc (Aura Bolt), Conviction, Mark of Fury, Shimmering Wings, Whip Silk

in gerneral: Roar of the Crowd, Impact Tremors

in gerneral: Distant Melody

in gerneral: Pack's Disdain, Deathspore Thallid

in gerneral: Pallid Mycoderm, Selesnya Evangel, Soul Warden et al. or Suture Priest

Podkomorka: thanks for your comments! =)

Sprout Swarm is nice, thanks for letting me know about that one.

Altar's Reap crossed my mind before, and you're probably right. I do need some draw-power in here.

As for removal, Deathspore Thallid is doing that for me for now, but I could put some actual removal in the sideboard, for security.

Also: I've been considering making this five-color, and adding Volt Charge and Wings of Velis Vel or Trickery Charm.

Put Death's Presence in this list and you've got the usual Ghave build. I get it, I wanted to build Ghave as well, but I realized this guy's kinda solved:

And then filled with supporting stuff like:

So it's more like a fixed 20 card deck with fillers like removal, tutors and stuff.

But I have to admit Muraganda Petroglyphs is a nice addition though. ;)

LordNazahn on Sac it up up up, thallids on fire! *pauper*

but from what i see you are only splashing red for that, and only through the Burning-Tree Emissary

If your going with a sac outlet, go black, there is Deathspore Thallid you can grab, along side some draw power card like Altar's Reap and that Mortician Beetle

My 2 cents as a Fungus collector and player (even if is edh). You will prefer to use the spells to make Saproling tokens and use fungus only for sac outlets. That means you NEED card draw and haste (especially if plan to go swarm or you will easily get wrathed.

I would keep Utopias of course and the snakes and add some cheap utility sac outlets like Deathspore Thallid, Psychotrope Thallid and Vitaspore Thallid. Also to Ancient + Sporewoer is to too redundant as you have the betters Sporemound and Mycoloth. That will make space for some hexproof instants and some more token spells. Finally for 1 drop you don't need the regular Thallid as you have utopias.

Nice and stramlined, love it ;)

Psychotrope Thallid offers some nice and cheap draw power.

If you're made of money, then Doubling Season is made for this deck. So is Primal Vigor

If you're as despicable as me, you might be interested in the infinite combo that is Life and Limb+Sporemound.

If you'd be willing to splash other colours, then:

White nominates Pallid Mycoderm.

Black nominates Deathspore Thallid.

Blue... don't get me started on blue :p I'll just direct you towards my sapproling-deck: and they keep on dancing...

Stay frosty!
