Thank you for taking a look, Snacrifice. I had around 117 cards in the initial list, so I spent lots of time last night just trying to make cuts. The mana base is not set yet, though. I just listed the forests/plains to get the count in there. Now, on to the suggestions....

Spore Flower fits, but it doubles Spike Weaver. If I don't have a Weaver, though, I'll go with it as a budget option, for sure. I do like Mycologist, it must be the Timeshifted version of Elvish Farmer. I may have to squeeze it in somewhere. I like Sporogenesis, but the only bad thing is if it gets removed, all, ALL of the spore counters go away. Wait, I just read that, and it says "fungus counters," not "spore counters," so that may be playable. I'll consider it. I was not aware of Selesnya Evangel, and she is strictly better than the guildmage, so in she goes. I'll see if I can find a spot for Sprout Swarm, but I'm not sure on Seed Spark.

Thank you again for taking a look. I'm not sure how good this deck will be, but it should be fun if it gets going.

You might like Spore Flower, as it's a fungus that doubles as a fog-effect.(especially with Fungal Bloom and the rest). Also Mycologist is another white spore maker for you.

I'm suprised not to see Sporogenesis or the absolutely amazing Sprout Swarm(the latter of which is one of my favorite cards printed. I prefer Selesnya Evangel over the guildmage myself.

Seed Spark is a really decent mixed used card as well.

Also didn't see Rhys the Redeemed ... If you're looking for strong board presence, that's a great one to go to for the last ability. With creature wide haste, or on battlefield abilities (Warstorm Surge), it usually becomes a game ender.

Because of Sporogenesis, I would also think of adding some sneaking saproling and card advantage creators to counter board wipes, allow card draw, life gain, sac outlets, etc:

Sporesower Thallid

Psychotrope Thallid

Pallid Mycoderm

Mycologist

Elvish Farmer

I'm not sure how political your game group gets, but you are right, eventually your friends will know what's up and not let you ramp up quickly. Finding ways to divert attention helps a lot in decks that need time. Essentially, that breaks down into conceal, divert, or inconvenience. I don't know which I would grab, but I find a lot of these are very sneaky and discouraging to attack. The fungus creatures were something I never had in my original Rith deck... but came to love them after a few rounds. They sneak in a lot of benefits (sac outlets, life gain, buffs, card draw) while sneaking in bursts of saprolings every 3 turns that typically come at a surprise for many players (especially if you create these tokens on an opponent's turn). Of course, all of this gets avoided if you ramp fast enough. With green/white it can be pretty easy.

Conceal:

Psychotrope Thallid

Pallid Mycoderm

Mycologist

Elvish Farmer

Sporesower Thallid

Divert:

Curse of the stalked Prey

Curse of Predation

Curse of Opulence

Curse of Vitality

Inconvenience:

Crawlspace

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist

Anything resembling Fog or Kami of False Hope

Hey zombiesocket, Sadly RupertPhd is right and that card would only work on my non tokens, aka not with all of all my saprolings.

RupertPhd, Corpsejack Menace Only works on +1 +1 counters on creatures so he would be good with my commander but not much else, and I already have quite a few other sources which will do the exact same so I am hesitate about adding him.

Replaced - Mycologist (HE IS NOT EVEN A FUNGUS I FOUND THAT OUT WHILE PLAYING HIM THINKING HE WAS! MADNESS) with Fungal Behemoth

Replaced - Thallid Devourer with Gleancrawler

Replaced - Thallid Germinator with Privileged Position
