Sprout Swarm Discussion

I tend to prefer Sprout Swarm over Scatter the Seeds but that may just be me.

I would definitely say that the following cards are worth putting in the deck:Arcanis the Omnipotent for the card draw

Chord of Calling (especially with the up coming reprint)

Counterspell as it is a great counter

Dismiss into Dream with the amount of targeting you can do with multiple untaps, derevi can start killing opponents creatures

Ertai, Wizard Adept another way to counter spells, plus is a wizard

Green Sun's Zenith for the tutoring, same with chord

Magewright's Stone , Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Rings of Brighthearth for the untap/copying of abilities

Sprout Swarm is a great way to build tokens.

Glen Elendra Archmage should also be considered.

Overall you have a wizard subtheme so maybe look at cards that help wizards?

Sprout Swarm I have come to realize is greatChord of Calling is fantastic for finding Prophet of Kruphix and Azami, Lady of Scrolls and on that note Green Sun's Zenith can find a plethora of answersI love Arcanis the Omnipotent since draw three plus protection is greatErtai, Wizard Adept can be a good safety net if you can get enough mana for this, he is rather mana hungry

Opportunity is okay, I like it cause I like the massive draw and I am rarely disappointed by it

Minamo, School at Water's Edge is fantastic and just a great card

Counterspell is always just a powerful fall-back

Swan Song is efficient and can win counter battles and stop annoying plays

Mother of Runes is good, one of the best one drops in the game and protection is very useful

Archivist is fine, seems a wee bit weak but hey card draw is card draw

Galvanic Alchemist needs a bit more synergy with more cards to make it worthwhile. I tried it with the thought that with azami its great, but the commander isn't azami and derevi wants a bit better rate on the body

Akroma's Memorial and Dismiss into Dream are in the same camp. both are very powerful, incredibly board state warping seven drops that get exponentially better with tokens but are fine on their own. With tokens they are great, and Squirrel Nest and Sprout Swarm are good token makers. So yeah, these cards are good.

Walking Atlas needs a lot of card draw to be worthwhile, and is better in non green decks. There are more efficient ramp spells out there and if you want a ramp spell that works with untaps try Thawing Glaciers

Rhys the Redeemed and Rings of Brighthearth are great cards the more I look at the deck, rhys helps the small token subtheme, while rings give all the activated abilities double power.rhys can be found by Green Sun's Zenith , and rings are fine with things like azami or the like.

Tezzeret the Seeker Can help find rings and other rocks if you end up going that route, and if you do there is always an artifact land package to help tezz fix mana.

And if you are running green suns zenith you can always think of Dryad Arbor which gives you a one mana ramp spell with GSZ

Your curve is awful, and I'd recommend running Birds of Paradise . It is a mana dork that lets you flashback Lingering Souls .

Ok, I'll name all of the cards that are really poor in this deck.

1) Emmara Tandris

2) Trostani's Summoner

3) Grove of the Guardian

4) Sundering Growth

5) Eyes in the Skies

6) Selesnya Guildgate

Honestly, if you want a half decent token deck, get the modern event deck and make some improvements. This deck wouldn't do too well in an event, but is ok in casual play depending on your meta. Budget cards that I might run are:

1) Intangible Virtue

2) Path to Exile (only just budget, $4-5 a piece)

3) Armada Wurm (just about playable, better than a lot of other stuff here)

4) Blade Splicer

5) Raise the Alarm

6) Captain's Call

7) Cenn's Enlistment

8) Conqueror's Pledge

9) Darien, King of Kjeldor

10) Doomed Traveler

11) Fists of Ironwood

12) Spectral Procession

13) Gather the Townsfolk

14) Growing Ranks

15) Imperious Perfect

16) Increasing Devotion

17) Kazandu Tuskcaller

18) Luminarch Ascension

19) Launch the Fleet

20) Master of the Wild Hunt

21) Honor of the Pure (depending on how white your deck is)

22) Militia's Pride

23) Mitotic Slime (just for trolls)

24) Doubling Season

25) Archangel of Thune (not exactly budget, but works nicely with Trostani)

26) Rhys the Redeemed

27) Selesnya Charm

28) Slime Molding

29) Sprout Swarm

30) Thraben Doomsayer

31) Thragtusk

32) Timely Reinforcements

33) White Sun's Zenith

34) Wolfbriar Elemental

These are just options for you, hope this helps!

Wow that's a lot of comments. Notice that I already use Utopia Mycon as a 4-of. It's very tempting to use a lot of other high-cost creatures like jamming 4 each of Mycoloth and friends, but I've found that the more fungus you have out producing spores, the better the deck is using Thelon of Havenwood to create a huge army to swing for the win. (He's better than Coat of Arms in this particular deck by far.) I used to run Attrition in this deck, but I decided to keep it modern just for fun in case I wanted to take it to modern night just to shake things up. That's why I'm not running all the cool legacy creature destruction, but if you wanted to make a casual deck out of this go ahead and use Attrition and Grave Pact !

I used to run Sprout Swarm as well, but generally speaking it's a little slow. I'll also take Fists of Ironwood over Sprout any day since it does so much more for me for just 1 more mana. Using it to make 2 saprolings gives me the same effect as using Springleaf Drum and Sprout as far as acceleration is concerned in your earlier example. I could still get a turn 3 5-mana guy out that way. ;)

Quiet Disrepair is a card I have always liked, but for this deck I think I'll stick with Sundering Growth as it keeps the deck aggressive with populate. I've been really tempted to run blue in this deck just for Paradox Haze , and I may try it one of these days. My brother uses Invert the Skies as a finisher in his simic deck, so I know how awesome that card is. However, Fallen Ideal essentially adds an extra power to all my saprolings when I sac them to whatever creature I have it attached to, making my alpha strike always lethal. Generally how the games work out is I play a bunch of dudes and don't attack, 'growing' the army (lol). I'll use Deathspore Thallid to control the board on my opponent's side until I draw into a Thelon of Havenwood , Mycoloth or a Fallen Ideal , then win with a huge creature attack, a 20/20 beater or 20+ power in flying. In order to do that I need a bunch of fungus out there growing free saprolings, and I like having a lot of 1 and 2-drops to start early. Shell-dweller helps out with my way of playing the deck immensly as he shuts down early aggro and is tougher to remove so he's one of my favorite starting guys.

Thanks for the comments and ideas vedalkin_mastermind! I think i'll play around with some of those blue cards and maybe switch out a Deathspore Thallid for the Vitaspore Thallid and see how that works out (since having haste with Mycoloth sounds like the best idea ever!)

Omg almost forgot! Springleaf Drum used along with Utopia Mycon and cards like Sprout and Sprout Swarm really nullify any real need to run anything other than basic lands. You can have 5 mana turn 3 with those cards, not to mention serious board presence. Turn 1 Utopia Mycon . Turn 2 Springleaf Drum , Sprout , tap sac it, and play Spore Flower (since its a more casual deck) or Jade Mage or your Thallid Shell-Dweller or another Utopia Mycon and a plain old Thallid or even a Vitaspore Thallid making Mycoloth that much more awesome when you play him turn 3 after casting your Sprout Swarm for free and sacing the lil guy to give Mycoloth haste. You will also have to devour your Utopia Mycon but he has served his purpose. If you decide simic (which i HIGHLY suggest) think about Followed Footsteps and run 4 Paradox Haze and dont forget about a few Copy Enchantment and the very important Quiet Disrepair . It may seem lame but Clockspinning and Turn Aside are now valid options and can be pretty handy for all kinds of things. Hell!.......... Now i have to build a fungus deck! Btw........ I hate Coat of Arms . There are more fun ways to win.
