Fungal Plots Discussion

paopaodomingo All good lol! Test around with amonkhet and kaledesh, but I'm staying away right now because of rotation when it comes in October.
Rite of Belzenlok helps with ascending Tendershoot Dryad, so little big nasty is back! I did have to remove 1 vraska relic seeker, and a Fungal Plots. I noticed fungal plots was used later game and pulling it early just had it sit there until I was able to fully utilize it.
I'm keeping 1x Vraska, Relic Seeker as she produces bigger 2/2 fodder, and that -10 is delicious!
As for Tendershoot Dryad he was always meant for the deck, just didn't want to break budget. I enjoy sapherder, but this other jumbotron guy just pumps out little bitties so quick that by the time it's your turn you have 2 saps and a 2/2 that's buffing your saps by 2/2, he's not legendary, and you should ascend with this deck around turn 4/5.
Vraska's Contempt feels like a black deck staple? Planeswalker or big biggens removal? Don't mind if I don't! You also get 2 health so yeah... lol
Instead of costly plunder or soothsayer I was thinking Sword-Point Diplomacy

Supply // Demand needs spaces to read properly for some reason.
Triumph of the Hordes is a game ending card for this style of deck, although commander popularity has pushed the price up a lot.
Some of my favourite MTG memories are of a Pollenbright Wings on a Mycoloth. Both cards aren't great in modern, as they're too easily disrupted (barring a Leyline of Anticipation deck), but are a lot of fun in more casual lists. I've tinkered some, but you're pretty close to how this deck wants to run.
Sideboard wise, Alive // Well is worth a look. Cheap, helps hate out burn as well as, (if not better than,) a leyline in token decks. Solemnity hates infect while stopping both Ratchet Bomb and Engineered Explosives from hitting anything bigger than your tokens. Wilt-Leaf Liege is amazing in hollow-one metas.
Fungal Plots is a big saproling tribal card. You might not be making tokens often with it, but the lifegain/carddraw is very strong when you're using saprolings as chump blockers and trying to dig into your sideboard cards.
Utopia mycorn feels like it could be part of some kind of haste/combo list, but I've never seen it work well. Wayfaring Temple is basically either a 1/1 or a 3 mana duress as your opponent kills it.
Hope this helps- good luck and happy piloting.

Legion's Landing Flip is fairly cheap and will be super good. Anointed Procession also seems to be something you want to do. Perhaps Yavimaya Sapherd too. Your instinct on Lyra Dawnbringer and Huatli, Radiant Champion are probably right - maybe the new Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants too?
I think you probably don't need Gaea's Blessing, and unless you put in more saprolings Fungal Plots seems slow. I don't like Orazca Relic since you don't really need to ramp to 5, and the best thing it does is replace itself.
I don't know much about brawl meta but I think that's a place to start!

TheTrueSchmamook Thanks for the advice! There's already a few cards in place to address some draw power. Driven is a nice 2 drop that can really ramp your draw in a turn, along with hitting face for a few points. Enter the Unknown can get you that explore to more or less scry, plus played with an additional land in hand gets you that mana advantage very early. If you need more draw power, you can go ahead and sideboard in the Fungal Plots. With Slimefoot, the Stowaway out on the field, your draw will also do a bit extra.
Root Snare is a nice idea to protect against Goblin Chainwhirler, but unfortunately it won't work, seeing as how it's protection again COMBAT damage. Chainwhirler's ETB ability isn't combat damage. A few ways around it is to either Harsh Scrutiny the chainwhirler, or just have one of your lords out to beef your sappy bois.
Gruesome Fate on the other hand, I like that idea. I'm gonna try to find a spot to fit 2 in and see how it runs.
I like your Sacroling deck quite a bit, but I can see the differences between yours and mine. Yours is about generating and using them for bigger things while mine is just flooding the field with all the little bois and manipulating with them. It would be very interesting to see the two fight each other hahah.

Fun strategy! I built a standard version you should check out Sacroling - under $40 - [M19]
You're gonna need to remove some of the cards like Hissing Quagmire, unfortunately your main dude Mycloth and few others. Another option is to simply change it from standard format to modern and all should be fine.
I would recommend adding Song of Freyalise for early game mana ramp and that 3rd proc of buffing all your little dudes if they don't get cleared. You can also use them as mana, prior to sacrificing them. You can also add Fungal Plots for health and draw while sacrificing a few saprolings for Slimefoot, the Stowaway.
Either way great deck!

Also, cut the 2x Thallid and add 2x Tukatongue Thallid. Spore counters are mechanic that is just too slow. On the other side, you want to have targets ready for when Mycoloth hits the board, and also to trigger Slimefoot's ability.
Finally, 4x Blooming Marsh would be great. It is a little bit expensive considering you are making this a budget deck, but it could really smooth it.

I would suggest trading your Fatal Push or Fungal Infection for a quick token. Throw in some Llanowar Elves for a turn one ramp drop. Take out one land as well as your Verdant Force due to it being so much mana and trade in your Vraska, Relic Seeker for Vraska, Scheming Gorgon. Maybe put Deathbloom Thallid in as a chump blocker. I would only use 2 Fungal Plots as four seems kinda excessive and for evasion I'd chuck in some Pierce the Sky.
