Sprout Swarm Discussion

Jagg3r5 on Shaman Tribal Combo

The biggest problem you have is the color set. There are a lot of untap abilities out there, but some are in white and most are in blue. Not so many in Jund colors. Jade Mage is somewhat meh in my opinion, as the cost for a token is just so high. Master of the Wild Hunt is a bit slow, but reliable, more so than Wolf-Skull Shaman. Speed is definately a consideration here. For whatever reason I thought you already had Fresh Meat in here, but that's a definite in my book. If you go heavy on the tokens Parallel Lives could certainly be helpful. Might I suggest Beastmaster Ascension if you go this route, and also potentially Sprout Swarm. Other token Generators that aren't shamans could be Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Mycoloth.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thanks for the +1!

I had considered Pallid Mycoderm early on and Im not completely sure why I decided to leave it out. Maybe I got scared away by the 4 CMC but yeah Mycoderm definitely has good utility in this deck, specifically late game. Do you have any suggestions for what to take out for maybe 2-3? Perhaps a pump spell or something because they are both technically finishers? Its worth a test.

A Lumithread effect would be good for the mainboard I guess I was just thinking that most decks I would be playing against dont mainboard sweepers like Electrickery or Holy Light. But its definitely worth consideration.

I did initially have Fists of Ironwood in the main but I eventually removed it because the token production was not repeatable. My reason for playing saprolings and not Abzan Tokens is because of the spells that can give me more saprolings every single turn. (things like Selesnya Evangel, Sprout Swarm, and the Thallids) The tribal synergies with Echoing Courage and Deathspore Thallid are the other reason. Maybe I was using it wrong. What would you suggest taking out for the play set?

As for Gruesome Fate, I dont know if it is much better than Harsh Sustenance. The only real difference is the in the casting cost. Other than that, Harsh Sustenance is instant speed, hits creatures, and gives life gain as well. Whereas, Gruesome Fate is sorcery-speed, only hits the opponent, and provides no life gain. Not worth the switch to me.

Thanks for the suggestions! Ill definitely be testing Pallid Mycoderm in the future. Let me know if you decide to test it yourself.

I hear you. Sprout Swarm is nice because you can go off at an opponent's end step and attack on your turn, or play Fires of Yavimaya. Because Sprout Swarm is an instant with buyback, it's pretty flexible and helps rebuild quickly.

Intruder Alarm + Sprout Swarm might also be fun here.

happy brewing!

Heh. You could also rock a Paradox Engine + Sprout Swarm and go off with Saprolings for a laugh now and again.

If you run Doubling Season, maybe consider adding Parallel Lives, as well? Then you can run Mycoloth + Sprout Swarm for the win.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest might look pretty good here, too.

If either of these decks can be of any help, I hope you'll feel free to stop by anytime to compare notes: Mazirek Counters and Sprout Swarm EDH.

Happy playing!
