Spore Swarm Discussion

Hey, I like the idea of playing Anointer Priest with Sap tokens. I suggest expanding on this idea. Both Priest and Sap tokens are good with Anointed Procession this is the direction I think you should move into. More Procession, more Priest and more Sap token creators such as Spore Swarm and Yavimaya Sapherd.

In the deck description you mention Song of Freyalise, but it's not in the deck. You also mention that you generate a lot of mana, but there's only Llanowar Elves to generate mana and 2x Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip which is too hard to consistently count on flipping with so few creatures and token creators. Something is being left out from the decklist compared to the deck you're actually playing?

I suggest adding Song, you're right with Sap tokens it's quite good.

Consider this:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 4x Priest
  • 2x Slimefoot
  • 4x Sapherd
  • 3x Tendershoot
  • 4x Procession
  • 3x Song
  • 4x Swarm
  • 4x Migration
  • 4x Offering

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, really like the name :)

You're playing this deck at Standard tournaments? I find this hard to believe, but more power to you, hope you draw well. Currently the deck is 62 cards...

Consider more Migration, Swarm and Sapherd? These are the cards that create Saps before Tendershoot. You say the early game strategy is to create as many Saps are possible, but you can't really do that with only one Migration. It's the two drop that creates the most Saps. Consider cutting 2x Oviya and 1x Bontu for 3x more Saproling Migration? Cutting 2x Duress for 2x more Spore Swarm? Cutting the last Bontu for another Sapherd? Sapherd is nice because it's a three drop to take advantage of turn one Llanowar Elves. 4x Llanowar and 4x Sapherd makes this possible line of play more consistent.

I don't think you need both Bontu and Plots as sac outlets I think you can choose one and cut the other. I think Plots is a better overall card with Saps. Oviya looks out of place I don't think you need her. She's not helping the Sap strategy and even as a token producer she's not that good, too slow.

For the manabase if you can get 2x more Woodland Cemetery this is will help the deck a lot. I mention Cemetery and not Blooming Marsh because Cemetery is a safer buy since it will be legal in Standard until Sept. 2019. Marsh rotates out of Standard this Sept. However, if you get more Marsh it will also help the deck. If budget is a concern then I suggest 4x Foul Orchard. More Golgari dual lands that can make either green or black, less basic lands.

If you're playing or want to start playing in tournaments a 15 card sideboard helps. A sideboard is used to give you advantages in some matchups. Cards that are good for the sideboard are: Duress, Divest, Thrashing Brontodon, more Vicious Offering, Golden Demise, Nissa, Vital Force, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, Driven / Despair, etc.

Hey, looks great.

Consider adding 1x more Spore Swarm and 1x Sporecrown Thallid, cutting 2x Deathbloom Thallid? Both Sporecrown and Swarm can have much more game impact than Deathbloom. Both of these cards help to combat Goblin Chainwhirler which is a card that will wreck you if you don't have Sporecrown in play. Swarm is good to rebuild a Sap army after the Goblin. Deathbloom is very lackluster for a main deck card. Both Sapherd and Slimefoot are far superior three drops.

A card that Saps can take good advantage of is Vicious Offering. There's a lot of sac fuel in the deck with Sap tokens, this card is an excellent versatile removal spell, kill Lyra Dawnbringer or any God such as Hazoret the Fervent. -5/-5 is no joke instant for two mana when all you have to do sac is a token.

That is true TheBigTree, although even if you created them at instant speed with Spore Swarm during your upkeep before the second chapter of Song of Freyalise, those saprolings couldn't tap for mana due to summoning sickness. Doing that before the final chapter would at give the saps the +1/+1 counters although they couldn't attack that turn.

Hey, sorry I took so long to comment. Different approach nice concept, I like it.

I think you need more creatures to consistently be able to play Torgaar. Main deck removal is fine, but creatures are more important because of Torgaar than a lot of removal. More removal can go in the sideboard. Elves are unfortunately an afterthought here, but that's fine they aren't the main strategy only a supporting strategy.

I think you're better off playing more cards that make Saproling tokens then more Elves. If you're looking for speed then Ling tokens are the direction to go. Turn one Fungal Infection, turn two Saproling Migration and turn three Torgaar sac all three tokens is very fast and can be achieved with only three cards and three lands (1x Forest and 2x Swamps).

Spore Swarm is a good card for a Torgaar strategy giving you three tokens for four mana. I like that both Llanowar Elves and Servant of the Conduit can help to ramp into a turn three Swarm. The three tokens from Swarm sets up a turn four Torgaar with Blossoming Defense protection.

My biggest gripe about Song of Freyalise with Elves is it's not needed because Elves can already make mana without Song. Song with Ling tokens however looks to be one of the best ways to use the card because Lings without Song can't make mana.

I'm keen on keeping the Elf tribal theme in Elf decks I make. If you want to take a more Elf approach I suggest building around Marwyn, the Nurturer playing lots more Elves and Torgaar. You could still keep the fast turn three Torgaar with Fungal Infection and Saproling Migration, but this would be the only nonElf theme.

Here's an example of mixing Elves with Saprolings. More Elves than Lings. Metallic Mimic is the bridge between both tribes:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 4x Servant
  • 2x Mimic
  • 3x Marwyn
  • 3x Rishkar
  • 2x Champion
  • 3x Torgaar

  • 4x Infection
  • 4x Migration
  • 3x Defense
  • 2x Offering

  • 2x Rite of Belzenlok

Example of mixing Lings with Elves. More Lings than Elves:

Example of Lings w/ only Llanowar and Servant:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 3x Servant
  • 4x Sporecrown
  • 4x Sapherd
  • 3x Torgaar

  • 4x Infection
  • 4x Migration
  • 3x Swarm
  • 3x Defense
  • 2x Offering

  • 3x Song
  • 2x Rite of Belzenlok

Good luck with your deck.

Could you guys explain why you would cut Snake Basket? It just seems like one of the more efficient token makers to me. 10 mana 10 tokens and a bunch of ways to abuse them are in there.

I'm not sure about your fast tokens from Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, and Saproling Migration. They are usually too low impact to matter in most decks but here they potentially get you a decent amount of mana accel.

One Dozen Eyes, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, and Spore Swarm are what I would definitely remove.

I'm not convinced on Siege-Gang Commander in this deck since your tokens come in a verity of forms he may not do very much. I think Purphoros, God of the Forge or Goblin Bombardment might be better options.

ZookNingel I thought about this but at 4 cmc im not so sure with Thallid Omnivore and Vraska's Contempt already in the slot. Also I purposely left out Spore Swarm for this reason as I felt more removal was necessary because of the time it takes to get set up with this deck.
