Saproling Burst


Fading 7 (This enchantment enters the battlefield with seven fade counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a fade counter from it. If you can't, sacrifice it.)

Remove a fade counter from Saproling Burst: Put a green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield. It has "This creature's power and toughness are each equal to the number of fade counters on Saproling Burst."

When Saproling Burst leaves the battlefield, destroy all tokens put onto the battlefield with Saproling Burst. They can't be regenerated.

Saproling Burst Discussion

You can certainly make it a viable deck without sinking Doubling Season money into it or turning it into a deck whose only goal is to Demonic Tutor into a combo. There's a lot of good stuff in here to build on.

Hardened Scales rounds out your Corpsejack Menace/Snek package.

You could probably lean a little into Saprolings, as well. Psychotrope Thallid is great card draw when your Commander makes Saprolings. Utopia Mycon is great for ramp. Tendershoot Dryad is a great lord for going wide. Night Soil , Saproling Burst , Verdant Embrace , Fertile Imagination , Fungal Sprouting , Scatter the Seeds , and Saproling Symbiosis are solid token producers. That last one is expensive, but I thought I'd just put it out there since it's old af.

There's great interaction in Saprolings, too. Morbid Bloom , Aura Mutation , Seed Spark are all pretty okay cards, and you're already running Death Mutation, Fungal Plots, and Necrogenesis.

As for cuts, if you're not doing broken combo things, Spikes are not good. Cruel Sadist , Sylvan Hierophant , Consuming Vapors , Heirloom Blade , Clockwork Vorrac , and Underworld Connections could probably be cut on card quality, alone.

The biggest thing you could do to make the deck "more competitive" is moving away from fungui and towards saprolings. You'll get more milage out of Morbid Bloom , Saproling Burst , Saproling Symbiosis , Spontaneous Generation , Tendershoot Dryad , and token enablers like Parallel Lives than you will out of fungus stuff more suited to the Thelon of Havenwood deck.

Not so much a recommendation as a warning. Be very careful with your Life and Limb + Sporemound combo. This combo actually sets off an unstoppable creation of "saproling forests." Unless you can break the chain with something like Krosan Grip you will technically force the game into a draw since you never stop making saprolings.

As for the rest of the deck, it looks solid! My very first deck was also a fungus tribal, but I used Ghave, Guru of Spores. Your deck looks a lot like mine did, and it's sure to be tons of fun. Personally, I did have a lot of fun with Saproling Burst. It's certainly a good idea if you're considering a proliferate subtheme.

Maybe run some effects that pump after blockers are declared like Leonin Sun Standard.

And for Saproling Tolen Generation Saproling Burst

Saproling Burst and Second Harvest are cheaper options that combo nicely

It will be base P/T 0/0 since it is not associated with any Saproling Burst.

If I use a Clone or Cytoshape to turn a creature into a copy of a token created by Saproling Burst, what P/T will the creature have? 0/0 because it has no Saproling Burst where it orginates from? Or the same P/T as the original?

Stupidmole, really like the looks of Saproling Burst. I've just picked up a copy. Just need to make room for it now. I'll throw in Elvish Farmer if I feel like I need another sac outlet. Thanks!

PonchoLibre, thanks for your suggestions. I tend to shy away from infect in Commander. My playgroup is pretty laid back. If I went the infect route, I would probably go with Triumph of the Hordes since it would just be a one-turn thing.
