Pallid Mycoderm Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thanks for the +1!
I had considered Pallid Mycoderm early on and Im not completely sure why I decided to leave it out. Maybe I got scared away by the 4 CMC but yeah Mycoderm definitely has good utility in this deck, specifically late game. Do you have any suggestions for what to take out for maybe 2-3? Perhaps a pump spell or something because they are both technically finishers? Its worth a test.
A Lumithread effect would be good for the mainboard I guess I was just thinking that most decks I would be playing against dont mainboard sweepers like Electrickery or Holy Light. But its definitely worth consideration.
I did initially have Fists of Ironwood in the main but I eventually removed it because the token production was not repeatable. My reason for playing saprolings and not Abzan Tokens is because of the spells that can give me more saprolings every single turn. (things like Selesnya Evangel, Sprout Swarm, and the Thallids) The tribal synergies with Echoing Courage and Deathspore Thallid are the other reason. Maybe I was using it wrong. What would you suggest taking out for the play set?
As for Gruesome Fate, I dont know if it is much better than Harsh Sustenance. The only real difference is the in the casting cost. Other than that, Harsh Sustenance is instant speed, hits creatures, and gives life gain as well. Whereas, Gruesome Fate is sorcery-speed, only hits the opponent, and provides no life gain. Not worth the switch to me.
Thanks for the suggestions! Ill definitely be testing Pallid Mycoderm in the future. Let me know if you decide to test it yourself.

If you want to go in two colored approach there are some nice interactions between some cards you already use there:
in gerneral: Distant Melody

assassin: Scarblade Elite
bat: Skeletal Vampire
beast: Vitality Charm
cephalid: Aboshan, Cephalid Emperor
eldrazi spawn: Brood Birthing
giant: Hearthcage Giant
goat: Springjack Pasture
gorgon: Hythonia the Cruel
kithkin: Goldmeadow Stalwart
minion: Balthor the Defiled
moonfolk: Patron of the Moon
nightstalker: Return of the Nightstalkers
pegasus: Sacred Mesa
pentavite: Pentavus only card with pentavite, but sort of works with changelings
plant: Avenger of Zendikar
rigger: Steamflogger Boss
There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.
Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

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:

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.

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...
