Smothering Abomination Discussion

Here are a few suggestions I have for you to go infinite while trying to keep my suggestions relatively cheap:
Protean Hulk - Sacing the hulk should pretty much be an instant win by allowing you to tutor up the Utopia Mycon + Champion of Lambholt + Zulaport Cutthroat infinite combo you've already got in the deck. There are a lot of 6 total cmc creature combos you can tutor up that will just end games for you, especially in these colors. This card honestly should fetch anything you need in order to finish a game right then and there depending on what tools you already have in play.
Natural Order - A little pricey, but it lets you cast the hulk for much cheaper by sacing a token.
Crystalline Crawler - This is actually a surprising amount of ramp / potentially being a free spell in addition to helping go infinite when combined with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest or Cathars' Crusade
You might also want to look at Bitter Ordeal as a hilarious alternate win con
I've got a deck that I've been working on for a while that's pretty similarly focused. Feel free to take a gander Ghave Combo. Hopefully this helps.

Cut deathreap ritual it's not a guaranteed draw, Phyrexian Arena is just better. Cut Chromatic lantern, its only good in 3 color+ decks; in this deck it's a wasted card slot.
Cut Primal Vigor, and just add Doubling Season as it doubles the amount of spore counters put on your fungus every turn.
Cut Greener Pastures, it just helps your opponents as much as you.
Cut Strength In Numbers, in this deck you are either going to combo out or swing wide with a bunch of dudes.
Cut Evolutionary Leap, you don't have many creatures you make tokens.
Cut Life And Limb, because its gonna feel real bad when Lindsy WOGs your lands away.
Cut Costly Plunder
Cut Sprout Swarm, your commander does that for 1 mana less
Cut a tutor, I don't care which one and replace it with Natural Order to tutor up a Craterhoof Behemoth(yes you need one of these) for game.
Cards you NEED to add:
- Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest: This will just win you games with brute force.
- Emrakul's Evangel: Can be a win con, and does turn a bunch of your 1/1's into 3/2s
- High Market
- Viscera Seer: This can help you get to answers if you need them
- Smothering Abomination: Sure it comes at a cost but it's a lot of draw power
- Reprocess: You can draw insane amounts of cards with this.
- Primal Growth: stupid good ramp, and you will almost always be able to sac something into it.
Here are some cards worth looking at, not nessecarily SHOULD go in:

Link to my Meren deck here: Okay, the Whole Death Thing? Minor Setback. That being said, here are some of the very best.
Targets: Acidic Slime for noncreature removal, Ravenous Chupacabra and Noxious Gearhulk are good creature removal, Primal Druid and Viridian Emissary are great ramp, Vindictive Lich and, Solemn Simulacrum Wurmcoil Engine are all fantastic.
Outlets: Champion of Stray Souls may seem odd, but really he's very useful. Sacrificing large quantities of creatures, getting the same amount back. Hell's Caretaker does the same, at a smaller scale. Disciple of Bolas is good card advantage. Killing Wave is either a board wipe or a massive burn spell. Perilous Forays is legendary ramp. Quagmire Druid is a little meta-dependent, but good. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a tutor AND a sac. Stronghold Assassin is good removal. Vampiric Rites really pretty good card draw.
And now for the passive stuff: Catacomb Sifter, Shadows of the Past, and Reaper of the Wilds are good. Deathreap Ritual, Smothering Abomination, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary are all stellar. Savra, Queen of the Golgari and Dictate of Erebos are terrifying. And, finally, Zulaport Cutthroat, while not the greatest, is pretty subtle and drains a good amount.

Cards I'd cut:
Ashling, the Extinguisher - 4 mana with no evasion makes it very unlikely this critter will actually connect with players. I recommend cutting it for a better force-sacrifice effect like Innocent Blood.
Bloodbriar - It's selfish (it only gives itself +1/+1 counters) and it has zero evasion. Not worth it. I recommend Reyhan, Last of the Abzan in its stead; it has the same CMC and lets you move around +1/+1 counters all day.
Deadeye Plunderers - You only have two artifacts in the deck.
Demon of Wailing Agonies - Slow. Especially when your commander has CMC 6.
Gatekeeper of Malakir - BBB cost is really hard to get sometimes in BUG colors.
Glissa, the Traitor - Slow. She's neat and a good blocker but it doesn't matter because you only have two artifacts.
Labyrinth Guardian - This critter adds nothing to your strategy.
Marrow Chomper - Too slow.
Patron of the Nezumi - Not enough rats to make it worth it. Effect is meh.
Phylactery Lich - Same reason as Gatekeeper. Also you only have two artifacts.
Savra, Queen of the Golgari - She does nothing on her own; she needs other things to do her work which isn't good.
Utopia Mycon - Too slow.
I'll add more comments when I get more time to look over the next few categories.

Last_Laugh I did consider those cards, but I didn't really need the pillowfort effect of Elephant Grass, and I would need to pay some amount of accumulated upkeep for Ancestral Knowledge for it to be useful unless I just exile most of the cards which would weaken a Primal Surge. Also it doesn't work well with fetches. But thanks for leaving a comment!
Flash1995 Embalm and eternalize don't work since you have to exile the original card from the graveyard. Unless you mean just casting the original creatures. I think there are more powerful ETBs to exploit apart from those. You could build it like Meren decks with sac outlets and add in some good blue cards. I think Mystic Snake, Eidolon of Blossoms, Spore Frog, Master Biomancer, Profaner of the Dead, Smothering Abomination, Path of Discovery, and Cream of the Crop could be good for what you're trying to do.

So it seems like the plan of your deck is to generate lots of snake tokens. I think Harbinger of Night and Midnight Banshee are worth an include even if it kills your snakes, since Hapatra's ability will make new snakes anyway. The Banshee spares Hapatra. Champion of Lambholt will grow pretty big and makes your creatures unblockable. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed has so much synergy with a -1/-1 deck that you should consider including it to save your creatures. Eldrazi Monument and Smothering Abomination should work well if you have lots of snakes to sacrifice as well. Razaketh, the Foulblooded lets you tutor whatever you need. Harvester of Souls and Symbiotic Deployment should draw you lots of cards. You probably need more ramp to cast some of your bigger cards. I would suggest cutting Spontaneous Generation, Myriarch, Durable Handicraft, and Praetors' Counsel.

Smothering Abomination : totally agree.i only have a single copy though, and its being used in my meren.
Butcher of Malakir : i do have him in my sideboard, i took him out for Defiant Bloodlord. Im not sure which one fits better! im torn between the two. Maybe i should cut Resolute Archangel. What do you think?As for the other two enchantments, yes i do need to get those.
Archangel of Thune:read the description :[
And Felidar Sovereign is already on the list. Its an auto include in any lifegain deck, so i absolutely agree with you.
Thank you for the upvote!
