seshiro_of_the_orochi on Is there a card like ...

My first idea was Wild Cantor. As you already have this, there aren't that many options left. What I found are thoese:

Crystalline Crawler

Eldrazi Skyspawner

Hidden Herbalists

Nest Invader

I couldn't find any cards that fit ecatly your criteria. Those seem ok.

I've looked at this deck a few times now. It looks pretty solid. +1. My only real suggestion is to put something like Vines of Vastwood and Tragic Slip in the sideboard. Oh and +1 land and -1 Bloodthrone Vampire maybe?

As for ideas to lower the curve, there's not a lot to shave off, lol. But, perhaps lose the other Bloodthrone Vampire (because it's bonus is not permanent, and I feel you need more "sack-ables") and the Plagued Rusalka along with two Brindle Shoats in favor of a full playset of Festering Mummy?

I might favor the Nest Invader over the Shoat because the Spawn/Scion has multiple uses. Also, using Blisterpod instead of the Invader could lower your curve.

I dig the deck a lot. I like playing golgari sac/yard so here is some budget cards(50 cent to 3 dollars) that I run in my Meren deck or my Vaevictis deck. All of these cards are really good and I feel can fit in the deck. So hopefully you can use them.

Budget Sac outlets: Carrion Feeder (50 cents), Viscera Seer (2.50),

Budget Tutors: Fierce Empath (50 cents), Woodland Bellower (3 dollars), Pattern of Rebirth (3 dollars)

Budget Manadorks/Ramp: Elves of Deep Shadow (50 cents), Primal Growth (50 cents)

Budget Removal: Reclamation Sage (40 cents), Terastodon (1 dollar), Nature's Claim(40 cents)

Budget Reanimation: Phyrexian Delver (1.50)

Budget Wincon: Tainted Strike (50 cents)

Budget Draw: Read the Bones (25 cents)

Honorable Mentions(These are good cards but I don't use in my decks but can work really well with yours) Innocent Blood (50 cents), Mortician Beetle (50 cents), Nest Invader (50 cents),

Damn, I actually didnt even think about the tokens triggering experience counters, that's a really good point. Those cards become a lot better in that sense. I think I misunderstood your game plan, I was pushing towards a much grindier experience-counters-matters build, since players cant interact with the experience counters I feel as thought it provides an extreme inevitability. Also, something I thought of is infect creatures. They definitely are bad without trample but its something interesting to think of as a 1-of to just randomly dump counters on and kill someone, especially Blighted Agent since it can't be blocked. Also, my thinking with hardened scales is that it synergizes really well with other proliferate effects, so if you aren't running them it probably isn't worth adding. Finally, I think Nest Invader is not worth it. If you wanted to get the turn three ezuri Birds of Paradise is better because it saves you 1 mana for other spells, has flying, taps for colors, and is reusable. It's worth more than a single experience counter. I also think squirrel nest is less good when you aren't focusing on winning through it. I think that you could run Earthcraft as a hasty Cryptolith Rite and then not look back.

Okay so first of all: one drops of two different colors in pauper is really awkward. It should work out fine most of the time but I feel like it might turn some hands that would be auto wins if you can play your 1 drop into pretty bad hands. In fact, you can see how awkward it makes things by your mana base: if you had another red 1 drop instead of Young Wolf , you could probably get away with swapping 2 forests for 2 mountains.

I'm not a fan of Horned Kavu : it's a big pile of stats, sure, but it puts you behind on tempo and it leaves you very vulnerable to Snap which is a blue staple. I would much rather see a fourth Burning-Tree Emissary and another two drop like Nest Invader or Mogg War Marshal which would help you trigger Morbid. (As a side note, Blastoderm + Horned Kavu doesn't actually work because Blastoderm has shroud)

Speaking of Blastoderm , I'm not a big fan of it because it can't come down before turn 4, which is the turn you're either going to be overtaken by other aggro decks or the turn a control deck will start stabilizing so you need to have an explosive turn 4, which is the complete opposite of Blastoderm as it's just a big pile of stats with no real impact on the field.

Manamorphose isn't great either: it does basically say -1 card in your deck but the filtering doesn't seem very relevant when you could have more action in your deck. If you had a Thermo-Alchemist or a similar card in there, it would be alright but right now, I'd be more happy to see more Rancor .

Overall, I feel like this deck is a bit too slow. Here are some cards to consider to accelerate it: Vines of Vastwood , more Rancor , Nettle Sentinel if the deck veers green, Goblin Cohort and/or Mogg Conscripts , Goblin Bushwhacker if the deck goes wider, Hunger of the Howlpack , Porcelain Legionnaire , Vault Skirge if you have lots of pumps, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk , Savage Swipe if you mostly have 2-power creatures and maybe some more burn in the main like Chain Lightning and Reckless Abandon .

Also little side though I had a 60 card casual mono green eldrazi deck amd before you ask how is that casual, it wasnt big fatty eldrazi like modern or most competitive EDH plays it played. Nest Invader , Kozilek's Predator , Hand of Emrakul , Growth Spasm Awakening Zone simple stuff like that and what I found was having a problem with all these 0/1 tokens on the field so if you have that problem some how in 100cards..... Overwhelming Stampede and cards like that.....food for though
