Walker of the Woods

Planeswalker - Nemata

+1: Create two 1/1 green Saproling creature tokens.

-1: Target creature gets +1/+2. (This effect is permanent. It lasts until the creature leaves the battlefield, not just until end of turn.)

-5: You may sacrifice any number of Saprolings. For each Saproling sacrificed this way, search your library for a Forest card and put it onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

Planeswalker version of Nemata, Grove Guardian . Maybe not the least know legend, but probably not too widely known at this point.

Make another planeswalker.

Fun! It feels like surveil is more of an all-in strategy for it to be great, except for Underrealm Lich or Doom Whisperer , while dredge is generally fantastic in this strategy. I'd agree that Dimir Informant and Barrier of Bones may not produce enough value as the way you use that 1 creature cast from the graveyard that turn, while dredge provides the value without taking up the creature cast. It's too bad there wasn't an artifact creature with a surveil etb trigger!

Like skoobysnackz says, Stinkweed Imp does seem like a great option as a replacement. More value than Dimir Informant as it also discourages attacks. I don't know if Golgari Thug has enough synergy in here though, I think he's better in something like Gitrog where you have easy card draw and are less likely to play creatures from the graveyard.

Jade Mage could be better than Slimefoot...? She doesn't have the die trigger for the saprolings, but she is 1 cheaper to play (and replay), and 1 cheaper for creating saprolings, so more useable as a sink when you don't have the huge mana turns. Or, if mana isn't a problem in general and you want the mass saproling army, maybe Nemata, Grove Guardian . It seems like you don't have enough sac outlets to really make the Slimefoot trigger valuable and Nemata, while more expensive to cast, gives cheaper saprolings and a way to make that wide army tall. Just some thoughts - if Slimefoot has been performing, then by all means!

I love the interactivity of this deck, Muldrotha seems so fun as a tool box!

I like Constant Mists in these kinds of decks. The decks that are planning to win with combat damage often just fold to that one.

Patron of the Moon and Meloku the Clouded Mirror might be other worthwhile additions?

I'd also look into some mana sinks. I mean there has to be a point where you have enough mana and you might want to start spending it on something to actually win the game, right? :) I run buyback spells (Wurmcalling) in my Karametra deck, which I'm guessing works somewhat similarly to this one. Soul of Zendikar, Nemata, Grove Guardian... Something like those, perhaps?

Laboratory Maniac looks a bit strange in this deck. Has it been working for you?

Hey, nice first budget Commander deck build.

Consider including more two and three drop creatures who put a spore counter on themselves each upkeep and can use those counters to make a Sap (Mycon, Thallid, Farmer, Deathspore, Shel-Dweller, Germinator, Psychotrope, Vitaspore, etc.). These creatures can make a Sap simply by them just being on the battlefield getting counters. It costs no mana to put spore counters on them, no mana to make a token and it doesn't require another card to make a Sap, that's powerful.

Here's some budget suggestions ($1 or less):

Semi-budget cards to consider ($4-$6):

Non-budget cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Elvish Skysweeper
  • Llanowar Scout
  • Ruthless Knave
  • Spore Flower
  • Falkenrath Noble
  • Golgari Cluestone
  • Death Mutation
  • Golgari Keyrune
  • Smothering Abomination

Good luck with your deck.

Dragonlord Dromoka could help protect the combo a bit if necessary, and is just a good card to run in general.

Soul of Zendikar / Nemata, Grove Guardian / Urbis Protector creates infinite tokens.

Carnivorous Moss-Beast creates an infinitely big creature.

For what I can tell, without using Auratouched Mage to fetch Boonweaver combo (which, with the other combo, takes up a whole lot of deck space), there is no way to instantly win the game w/out other included cards.

Some suggestions Verdant Force although big, you should be able to get enough mana as it makes tokens on every upkeep. Tendershoot Dryad is another one I would definitely recommend to add as the ascend trigger is super easy to go off from. Thelonite Hermit is another good one. Thallid Soothsayer is a bit slow but it gives card draw and goes with the theme. Mold Shambler is like a bad Reclamation Sage but goes with theme. Nemata, Grove Guardian is an interesting dude as he gives a worldly buff when going for the kill.

Hope these may help!

You have a very solid base here that can lead to some really fun aristocrats gameplay. Depending on your budget, however, here are some cards to consider. I know some of these can be a bit pricey, but if you can afford them they make great inclusions. Bloodspore Thrinax Craterhoof Behemoth Elvish Farmer Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest Nemata, Grove Guardian Psychotrope Thallid Sporesower Thallid Tendershoot Dryad Cryptolith Rite Dictate of Erebos Parallel Lives Doubling Season Primal Vigor Grave Pact Dictate of Erebos

I know that's a lot of cards, and nearly all of them are over $1, some being over $10. Honestly though you don't need any of them, what you have here is really solid and you have all the correct includes for a saproling aristocrats deck. My suggestions only really come into play if you're willing to spend a lot on the deck, and I know what you have right now is pretty budget. Honestly the only card I would say you absolutely should run is Sporesower Thallid. It's inexpensive and helps your other fungi get their needed 3 spore counters. (or 2 if you have sporoloth ancient out.)
