Sporemound and Life and Limb will also draw the game if you're looking for another combo! Love the deck idea

That's great, thanks alot PitaGryphon and Tylord2894. I also appreciate the text breakdown.

Trying to make a jank EDH work with Life and Limb, then cards like Remembrance, Nightmare Shepherd, and Luminous Broodmoth and wins like Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Great to hear it can be pulled off, even if only theoretically :)

I always had thought that for something to die, it has to hit the graveyard.

So, would that mean if a Forest was turned creature from Life and Limb, it would not trigger Nightmare Shepherd when it "died" cause it would no longer be a creature when it hits the graveyard? I feel like I'm missing a step.

Deathspore Thallid can be used to turn your saporlings into some sort of alright removal while being another slow rolling producer.

Night Soil is a great card that can just devastate people's graveyards and you get saporlings for doing it.

Life and Limb is a risky card but fallowed up with a card like Overwhelming Stampede , Overcome , or Return of the Wildspeaker

Mycologist is another slow rolling card but he is low cmc and is outside green to spread colors around as well as sacrificing for life being good.

Poison-Tip Archer , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Bastion of Remembrance can be used to get some benefit out of saporling deaths kind of like Slimefoot does.

General removal for the deck can be with cards like Murder , Vendetta , Doom Blade , Beast Within , and Swords to Plowshares

Card draw for the deck you could use is Harmonize , Shamanic Revelation , Beast Whisperer , Painful Truths , and Read the Bones

Going to do one more part for ramp + good stuff

seshiro_of_the_orochi Thanks for the input.

However even if it is extremely good with Ambush Commander, Life and Limb or Rude Awakening both for the ramp and for the buffs. It is quite unreliable to play it before combat in general and it is hard to play it early for great ramp effect (normally 1-2 lands only). Since this deck have to be fast to beat out all the board wipes and control spells, i think there are better options. However i added it to the maybe board.

Hey, lots of good cards here, but the part of your deck that needs the most improvement is the manabase. Even on a budget there's lands to consider adding.

Life and Limb + Sporemound is a infinite Sap tokens combo. Winding Constrictor puts more spore counters on creatures. When creating a lot of tokens then Mentor of the Meek, Good-Fortune Unicorn and Champion of Lambholt are nice three drops with repeatable abilities.

Good luck with your deck.

Sporemound + Life and Limb: draw your entire deck with your commander in play. Works well with Lab Man/Jace win cons. But you may need something to stop it with haha.

Life and Limb gives you a combo if you have Sporemound, Slimefoot, the Stowaway or Zulaport Cutthroat, and a Sac outlet.
