Thank you for going through all the trouble of listing out these cards. I really appreciate that!
But a lot of these either make creatures bigger than 2/2 and that just doesn't work with the deck.
I made it around my creatures being 2/2 or less.
Or the cards you suggested produce angels, Elementals, or beast.
And I need saprolling for a some of the effects of my other creatures like Thallid Germinator.

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!

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.
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

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.
