Creature — Fungus
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a spore counter on Sporoloth Ancient.
Creatures you control have "Remove two spore counters from this creature: Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play."

Sporoloth Ancient Discussion

Yes, I would like to compare notes with anybody who plays this format (not many people in my area do). I have built the following decks so far:
Drooling Groodion: Voltron/control deck that uses some recursion elements to repeat effects such as Crypt Rats, Nantuko Vigilante, and Dimir House Guard. Bascially, you generate a lot of tokens with cards like Sporoloth Ancient and Sprout Swarm, which you then sacrifice into the commander's ability. Actually surprisingly strong, because it allows repeated removal (which is great in this format, since most wins are creature based) and boosts itself at the same time.
Thunderclap Wyvern: Beatdown/control. Plaxcaster Frogling: Beatdown/control. Gelectrode: Control/Combo. Mesa Enchantress: Beatdown/control. Cliffhaven Vampire: Lifedrain. Contraband Kingpin: Artifact control. Stromkirk Captain: Vampire tribal.Drogskol Captain: Spirit tribal. Unraveling Mummy: Zombie tribal.
Currently thinking about Ruthless Sniper as monoblack cycle commander.

Sporoloth Ancient? It helps all your Thallids and is a pretty good body.

oooooooooh. Forgot Mortician Beetle is a common now! About to update my decklist though, I have changed a little bit, Might add Scorched Rusalka since that is a common now as well, took your advice on the Sporoloth Ancient!

I'll try to snag the Sporoloth Ancient. he might work for what I was going for. I mainly need good sac outlets to sac the saprolings to to trigger Bloodbriar, it's why I splashed red for the Gorger Wurm

So I'm not too familiar with Pauper format, aside from limited to common only cards, but i have built a token EDH deck that abuses saprolings, so here a few ideas:
~Sporoloth Ancient A bit high at 5CMC but if you can get it out lets the spore counters make a saproling at 2 not three, saving one turn could help.
~Night Soil 2 green for a way to remove a graveyard [not sure if graveyard play is a thing in pauper] and nets a saproling for 1 mana
~Terramorphic Expanse and/or Evolving Wilds Might seem odd in a mono color deck, but using this you can double trigger the 'Landfall' of sporemound. Issue is if you draw them too early it can slow you down
Finally if your willing to spash white: Selesnya Evangel 1 mana and tap her and another creature to make a token, not too bad in my eyes, but the one white to cast could hurt

Sorry for the super late reply, but thanks for the suggestion!
I actually had a Sporoloth Ancient in the deck for a short stint, but I wasn't a huge fan of the higher mana cost compared to Sporesower Thallid. When I needed to take something out to make room for Mycoloth I made that the cut.
I like that you worked in Paradox Haze in your deck though! I would love to see that go off, must be super satisfying :D

Also, looking at malacol, the art reminds me of the time spiral fungus like Sporoloth Ancient but the ability reminds me of the older fungus ability like Fungus Sliver. Either of these could be a decent mechanic for black/green.
