Maybe play this in a zoo style deck, An-Havva Constable can sync well with Burning-Tree Emissary. Folk of An-Havva just seems like an efficient trade off creature in the one drop slot, but there could be ways to make it work. Beastmaster Ascension if you can turn it on would work well for example, the other route being voltron and you build up the Folk of An-Havva.
You could also do green-white tokens style deck, stuff like Beast Within then becomes relevant. Saprolings come to mind, you can abuse a card like Life and Limb to create this type of effect. And follow this with support like Utopia Mycon and use Saproling Symbiosis as a finisher effectively doubling your already absurd amount of saprolings. Also note that if you have Life and Limb and then play Sporemound you get infinite saprolings but that this interaction can't be stopped unless you can disrupt the combo. This would make your An-Havva Constable extremely big and gain you a crap ton of life. To stop the combo consider Naturalize or Krosan Grip to get rid of the Life and Limb.

brokenglytch I'll have to ask about it next time I go to my LGS, we have a guy that's Judged GPs and Pro Tours before, so I'm sure he'd be able to clarify the interaction. I'm not sure if 104.4b is referring to game states that have no end in sight, like if a land ETBs with Sporemound and Life and Limb in play and continues infinitely without any end, or if it just refers to unfair infinite plays that eventually produce an end result.
With the Sporemound + Life and Limb combo, I definitely know that one ends in a draw (I think I saw someone play it on stream once or something just to troll people), but that's because you just keep generating creatures and don't have a way to "end" the game. With Bond + Blood, at least it reduces the opponent's life total to 0, which makes some sense since most Magic games end when someone's life total becomes 0.
It's definitely important I get this solved, because that's one of the main ways the deck wins haha.

I feel like if there is a deck that should use Life and Limb it is this one. It helps dodge the neccesity of Liege of the Tangle and helps enable shenanigans with Early Harvest. While ramping into Banfire with this is probably the correct call, the slots freed from trying to cast him enable shenanigans with Mycoloth, Psychotrope Thallid Scatter the Seeds Utopia Mycon and Sprout Swarm, substantially boosting the number of tapped creatures at the core of the combo.Good luck getting it running.

Life and Limb? Can do potentially weird things with Sporemound, but it seems on-theme.

Wood Elemental would also be very lulzy.

Sure thing mate. Life and Limb states that all my saprolings count as forests, and will thus create an infinite flow of new saprolings/lands with Sporemound :) the loop is unbreakable, unless I destroy the enchantment, that's why we have Naturalize :)

Nice and stramlined, love it ;)
Psychotrope Thallid offers some nice and cheap draw power.
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...
