Sporemound Discussion

May I suggest Sporemound and Life and Limb combo. Just have a sac outlet or Ob Nixilis, the Fallen

There is also the Sporemound and Life and Limb combo. Infinite saprolings and forests are nice. Feed them to an altar and viola.

Setting up a loop condition that has no optional actions forcing a draw is also a state based action and happens the instant you setup the loop and it recurs on autopilot for the first time. This would happen before anyone reaches 0 life.

It's the fact that it doesn't have an out clause (a simple 'you may', an activation cost that must be paid, etc) that makes it game breaking, and WotC decided to deal with this particular form of game breaking by forcing a draw.

Other examples of this would include;

Stuffy Doll (targeting yourself) + Pariah (Infinite ping-pong damage that never has a chance to resolve because of only compulsory actions)

Ajani's Chosen + Enchanted Evening (Infinite mandatory triggers of spawning Cat-Enchantments because every Enchantment spawns a Cat and every permanent is an Enchantment)

Worldgorger Dragon in the graveyard + Animate Dead when there are no other valid targets for Animate Dead in any graveyard. Animates the dragon who exiles the enchantment animating him, so he dies and the enchantment comes back. It must have a target, and the only valid choice is Worldgorger so it happens again...infinitely

Sporemound + Life and Limb (Single land drop or creature drop creates an infinite tide of 1/1 Saporling creatures that are also land, spawning more Saporlings. This one is usually cited as a prime example of this loop type that causes a draw)

There are some for mill, forcing card draw, and other shenanigans that are too good to be true. All of these end the game in a draw before they do anything useful. The instant the condition exists on the table, they're a draw. Such is the same for Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond and any instance of life-gain or damage. It's also worth pointing out that whether or not the loop could be interrupted or a piece of it could be destroyed doesn't really get around the kind of loop it is and any sort of work-around would be a house rules thing for your local group or shop. For instance, my local group likes cutting that infinite loop off at one cycle. I gain, you lose, end of stack, next turn.

TheStraydog on Saproling Swarm: Ghave's Forte

Since you will be saccing tons of stuff Bloodbriar is a great addition to the deck as a low-cmc and synergistic card.

Ivy Lane Denizen for stacking counters, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for a mass kill, Sprout Swarm for getting saprolings during your opponents turns and making your creatures pay for it, Night Soil for self explanatory reasons.

Sporemound goes infinite with Life and Limb but if you cannot fire a removal spell at your Mound the game will end in a draw.

Aside from the obvious Abrupt Decay, Putrefy is a good option for keeping it budget.

I think you need more sac outlets that hurt your opponent, because your 99 has overwhelming ratio of token engines against sac engines (except for the built-in sacs of the Thallids that is) or if saccing is just not your thing you might like either the green signature Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede or Echoing Courage to swarm and stomp.Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is also a great storm trooper.

And maybe a Naturalize?

Because Sporemound is a mandatory ability, when the trigger activates while there is a Life and Limb on the battlefield it will trigger infinitely, thereby forcing the game into a draw.

When you play a land with Sporemound and Life and Limb in play, you will get a Sporemound trigger on the stack. Then when that one resolves you u get a Life and Limb trigger and so a loop begins. Since this isn't a may effect, the stack enters an infinite loop. When this happens you either need a way to stop the loop like Beast Within or the game end a tie.

I'd replace those cluestones with Darksteel Ingot and Coalition Relic, and Devoted Druid you shouldn't have too many draw problems late game that one card will fix anyways. I'd throw in a Quillspike for that infinite with druid. Woodfall Primus, Noetic Scales and Ensnaring Bridge are must-haves, they're insanely powerful cards in this deck. Also Primus plus Quill spike is as much removal as you'll ever need. Slagwurm Armor is a solid option, so maybe consider it. Living Plane or Life and Limb in unison with Sporemound is just fun. Wargate is also insane.
