crash328 you can really do a lot with Life and Limb , and the Constant Mists use is certainly valid. I am not a fan of the downside that your lands can't be used when they come down. This can slow down the saproling production. That said, in The mid and late game it hits like a ton of bricks. I think I'm gonna run it again and explore it a bit more.

Wanted to pick your brain as you've been playing slimefoot longer than me. We both know about the Life and Limb infinite combo, so i was wondering, do you think if you're already playing the pieces, is Constant Mists a decent add, since it means you can sac saprolings for the buyback cost?

I think if you run Life and Limb you should have Sporemound in there as well and ways to stop the infinite loop. I went that way for a while in mine but I found that I couldn't tap the forests for Mana... Too many hoops to jump through

Sporemound and Life and Limb are a must-have in this deck in my opinion! :) Put them from your "maybe board" in your deck. Verdant Force also. ;)

Skullblade248 You can get infinite land drops with a bounce land, Retreat to Coralhelm , and a creature that puts a land into play by taping ( Walking Atlas , sakura tribe scout, or Skyshroud Ranger . If you have Amulet of Vigor or Lotus Cobra you get infinite mana.

Or with either Amulet of Vigor / Stone-Seeder Hierophant , Patron of the Moon , and any land. A great one to use is Sunscorched Desert

Sporemound , Life and Limb + any payoff card will win the game

Really, you can get infinite land drops with most combinations of return land to hand + put land onto the battlefield cards. Many of the peices are redundant just so I have an easier time finding each peice of my combo.

A lot of the combos don't net mana so I'm going to change the commander to new Omnath for Landfall - Draw.

Have you ever considered Cloudstone Curio as another way to get lands back into your hand? You could also run Life and Limb to combo with Sporemound , as long as you hold up 1 mana when you drop them so that you can Nature's Claim it before you die ;)

You might have to do a specific search to get them all but I know Rude Awakening and Sylvan Awakening should help. Liege of the Tangle and Life and Limb could help too.

Using utopia mycorn to power out Tendershoot Dryad feels like a fairly solid idea- but I'd feel more comfortable running this with other 5 drops in that slot, and other tools to power it out. Doubling season is similarly amazing, but due to it being traditionally used to insta-ult plainswalkers, you need to build around it so that it doesn't get outraced/disrupted. I don't feel that the rest of the deck supports that as a plan, and would set it aside for a different list.

I'd look at Mycoloth as additional copies of tendershoot- its a little more vulnerable to disruption, but is strong if it survives your opponents turn. With enough duress variants it should be able to provide value.

Green (x) ramp traditionally runs Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl for a very fast start, but B/G usually runs low to the ground creatures- figuring out a balance between creatures to get you to your five drops and spells to protect them will be the battle here.

In terms of saproling tribal cards to glance over, Fungal Plots , Life and Limb , Saproling Migration , Korozda Guildmage Scatter the Seeds , Sporecrown Thallid and combo-favourite Sprout Swarm all exist.

If you want a more drain-oriented strategy, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist can provide additional copies of slimefoot without having to tutor for him.

If you are looking at budget and where to spend money in a deck- focus on the manabase. Horizon lands look really strong, fetches always do well, and when you want to play something else they can usually be swapped right across.
