Sprout Swarm Discussion

I would say take out Godhead of Awe it still leaves creatures with their abilities so making them smaller doesn't really help that much. Possessed Portal seems too easy. Sprout Swarm is just bad. I don't see much use to Enchanted Evening and Holistic Wisdom.

Sprout Swarm could be super sweet as well.

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.
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?

I may be crazy, but it seems like pairing Young Pyromancer with buyback spells might be interesting with Prossh. Fanning the Flames could take the place of Burn at the Stake, Lab Rats or Wurmcalling or Sprout Swarm could take the place of Spoils of Blood, Reiterate is just plain good, Disturbed Burial has it's use, and Haze of Rage is a possible win con.

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.

I'll have to think about that!! Going infinite with Sprout Swarm this easily is definitely nice, not to mention the other synergies or the fact it can really disrupt the opponent's game. The main problem with it is not a deckbuilding one but a financial one - I need to spend $16 on Utopia Sprawl already, then I'd have to put $16 more into Intruder Alarm for just two copies, and then at -least- $5 on lands if I go with a set of Yavimaya Coast, but up to $60 if I decide to get Breeding Pool instead...
It's a big investment, but it's something I'll consider for the long term. Thanks again for the suggestion, it's a good one!
