Sprouting Thrinax Discussion

SynergyBuild: yea I forgot to add that one
The artifact lands could probably just replace their respective basics. I’m not big on Ichor Wellspring or Sprouting Thrinax. Butcher of Malakir is your worst pact and could be cuttable. I would switch Harvester of Souls with Grim Haruspex. Depending on how Smothering Abomination has played for you I may suggest cutting that.

However if that is not enough- which I'll assume it's not- Artifact Mutation is freaking delicious. Bitterblossom is a staple. Creakwood Liege also pumps the majority of your deck. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is also decent removal and his ult is insane. Descent of the Dragons could be an alternate wincon. Dragonlair Spider looks like garbage but can get out of hand in a hurry. Druid's Call is honestly insane, it's a great deterrent for blockers. Elemental Mastery is the best. Feral Incarnation, because it has convoke, is not so bad either. Necrogenesis is classic. Ogre Slumlord is a baller and a great rattlesnake. Plague of Vermin is a really nice way to put some damage in on your opponents, especially if the political atmosphere is good. Rampaging Baloths is craaazy. Sprouting Thrinax has served me well. Sylvan Offering can make some friends AND some tokens. Verdant Embrace and Verdant Force are good. Wolfcaller's Howl is good I think?

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

I like the path you are on a lot, but as you said, any deck can improve. I think you are right to switch out cut to ribbons with Bolt. Bolt can hit players, walkers or creatures right out of the gate and that matters so much more than the aftermath of ribbons. Sprouting Thrinax is definitely your all star. Deadeye tracker is cool, but I can think of other better 1 drops for your deck. Namely Goblin Guide! And the biggest change I can offer is there's no reason to skip good even cmc creatures. For one, it makes your tokens grab a two drop which can be crucial. And in general I think you will find better options. Though in the five drop range you could grab Reality Smasher which you won't need to hard cast so no worry about the colorless mana. You can also consider Burning-Tree Emissary since a 1 cmc cast from eldritch evolution is better than three. That two mana can cast you a one/two drop creature or another non-creature spell.
I will make up a version of the deck with a few of my suggestions and let you know so you can look at it. Thanks for posting!

Holy crap, Braids, Cabal Minion is PERFECT for this deck. Can't believe I forgot about her. Also, I've replaced Sprouting Thrinax with Mitotic Slime because I feel I'll get more bang for my buck without a terribly steep mana cost. I decided to add Praetor's Counsel as well, since I'll probably wind up having a fairly beefy graveyard without too much effort. I really like the thought of Puppeteer Clique as well (getting a useful swing or ability with one of their own creatures, then sacrificing it for further screwiness), but I'm just not sure whom I could stand to take out to make room for him. Thanks for the help! I simply can't wait to pull these shenanigans out on my roommates.

A lot of the maybeboard has cards you should really consider, I have a Kresh deck of my own, if you want to check it out, be my guest. Some cards you don't have include Boneyard Parley, Vona's Hunger, Victimize, Sprouting Thrinax, Essence Harvest, Mage Slayer, Flesh, Death's Presence, I could go on with this
