Thallid Germinator Discussion

passimo Thanks, glad you like the deck!

Thallid Germinator is definitely a good card. It can sacrifice Saprolings to save our other creatures and has a decent body for blocking. I agree that 8 is a lot for the Wardens, but I really need those to stick to the board for the deck to shine. Perhaps you could test it with the Germinator and let me know how it goes, it seems like it could be good.

As for Foul-Tongue Shriek, it's definitely a good finisher, and if you so choose could replace Harsh Sustenance in this deck. The only reason I keep Harsh Sustenance is because of the lifegain and possibility of hitting creatures if I'm extra desperate. Foul-Tongue Shriek could maybe find it's way onto the sideboard as well if the opponent has too many blockers.

Thank you for the suggestions! Let me know if you decide to try the deck out, I'd love to hear how Thallid Germinator performs.

I like a lot the deck, first time I see something really good with saprolings! the only thing I can suggest is something like Thallid Germinator, maybe instead of 2 Essence/Soul Warden (I think 8 may be too many but it's up to you), it creates some tokens and can save some creatures or add some damage. Have you considered something like Foul-Tongue Shriek? It may be good if you mass-attack with your saprolings!

Trifas on Saprolings, Snakes, and Spores

Seems like a fun deck!

I'd recommend Sporesower Thallid and/or Sporoloth Ancient to speed up your Saproling production. Sporesower seems like a better option for your gameplan as it interacts well with Winding Constrictor and Spore Flower.

Psychotrope Thallid may be a good "saproling-sink", while Thallid Germinator is a potential finisher for your deck.

I just don't quite understand Obelisk Spider in this list. The only card it seems to interact with is Tezzeret's Gambit. Maybe if you had some more Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine or Grim Affliction.

I'd also consider Scatter the Seeds or Fists of Ironwood instead of Flash Foliage, if you intent to increase your Saproling count. However, Flash Foliage may have its use if you intent to use it as a "cantrip fog".

I have a somewhat similar deck (though it is not Common/Uncommon only), in case you want to check!BG Thallids & Saprolings

Plants Coming Out of Your Butt

Korozda Guildmage pauper EDH. I need to remove one card so I can add Carrion Feeder to the list. Now since he is basically a win con for this deck I wanted to swap him in for one of the lesser wincons.

So between Scare Tactics and Thallid Germinator, which is better? Scare tactics is great just because it buffs my whole board, albeit a small and temporary buff. The germinator lets me turn blocked saps into more damage for unblocked saps, but doesn't have much long-term value.

Which of these two should I cut?

Because this feels like a token deck, I would suggest Thallids. There's more fluidity in their mechanic than throwing a bunch of evolve in your deck, plus they spawn the 1/1s for you.

Tukatongue Thallid, Vitaspore Thallid, Thallid Germinator, Sporemound, etc. are all perfect for your commanders ability. Not to mention the various ways you could speed up the counter process on your mushrooms of death.

I don't know if you know this, but Sporemound and life and limb causes an infinite loop that immediately forces the game to a draw unless you can stop it. I actually run this combo, and the easiest way to run it is to let it trigger an infinite amount of times, get an infinite amount of saprolings, and then kill the life and limb with Nature's Claim as to stop the triggers. Also, if you splash black you will open up a whole new world. I have a fungus deck that I will post for you if you want to see it. If you splash black you will get a lot of cool fungi like Deathspore Thallid to name one. If mono green then you could add Savage Thallid to protect your fungi, Sporoloth Ancient to pump out tokens faster, Thallid for a lower curve, and Thallid Germinator for massive creatures. There is so much more you can do, but those are just a few :)

First of all, nice deck. I like the premise and i think it can work well with a few changes.

I think there are a few to many cards with CMC of 5, maybe swapping Sporemound for something cheaper like Psychotrope Thallid, Thallid Germinator, or Thallid Shell-Dweller.

I also think that swapping out Dreampod Druid and Verdant Embrace would be for the better, as it is unlikely that you get both with only two Embrace in the deck. Alternatively putting in more Verdant Embrace but they are expensive in mana.
