Thallid Shell-Dweller Discussion

Pollenbright Druid can give you another body to sacrifice to Mycoloth, while also giving a +1/+1 counter if needed or Proliferating your spore counters. Thallid is a 1 drop that generates and uses spore counters. Mirror Entity takes all your frail creatures and turns them as big as you can pay for. Overrun can be a nice finisher with all these tokens lying around
I would remove Contagion Engine for another Mycoloth. Raking Canopy is only good for Sideboard and doesn't need to be in Mainboard as it can well be a dead card on your hand. I would also switch out Tukatongue Thallid for another Utopia Mycon and Thallid Shell-Dweller

My friend, I totally understand your point about the Winding Constrictor. I think, all this time, I overlooked his ability entirely. In fact, I have a bunch of them and don't have it in a single one of my decks. Then again, I don't use Aether Revolt cards often. There are a few that get cycled into my main decks, but beyond them I barely even give Aether a second-thought. It doesn't help that I have only ever gotten 3 or 4 packs of that set. The reasons I use Corpsejack Menace are:
- It's a Fungus Creature Type.
- It's a 4/4 rather than a 2/3. Still though, you're probably better off with your snake there.
Tendershoot Dryad is really good too! I have one of those AND a Verdant Force in my Sap deck, just to add a heavy hitter to my army. Tendershoot Dryad is definitely a better choice if your main focus is on spawning the most Saps at the lowest cost. Also, check out Sporoloth Ancient. It's 5 cost and it's a perfect partner for your Utopia Mycon, Deathspore Thallid, and Thallid Shell-Dweller. It reduces your spore counter cost by one, so you can summon a Sap every other turn, rather than every three turns. Plus, you can get 1 (or 3) for $.20-ish each on TCGPlayer.
You know what? As long as you have a good combo in mind for Sprout Swarm I don't see the harm in keeping it around, honestly.
Which Yawgmoth are you referring to? Yawgmoth, Thran Physician?

Sorry for answering late THCue, I've been busy the last weeks. You have some very nice cards in your deck, thank you for posting the list. I'll go into detail for some cards and share my opinion.
Aura Shards I really like it and this card will be added sooner or later.
As I said earlier, I just don't want to add fetch lands for different reasons. I don't think they are mandatory for mana fixing in this deck, also the price might turn some people off.
A friend of mine runs Slaughter the Strong in one of his Oathbreaker decks. I don't think it isn't that good because an opponent can still haven 4 1/1 creatures to block your stuff or to have a engine. I'm happy when it is this board wipe instead of another one because I can save some creatures.
Cards like Sunpetal Grove rarely come in tapped, but that's personal taste.
On a side note Sacred Rites won me a game yesterday. I discarded 4 cards and swung big. I'll keep testing it.
The_Declan I once had both cards in the deck. It really is personal preference what to keep and add between both of them. I rarely block with my creatures so the ability is negligible for me. But thank you for your suggestion!

Okay here I go I might tweak it more but this is the only change I did.
What I have in my deck vs yours...
Mizzium Skin Added Protection
Windswept Heath swamped out a land that could come in tapped
Fog Bank great for that tron or a bigger mob
Aura Shards just broken in this deck kill everything!
Congregation at Dawn tutor for Tetsuko
Slaughter the Strong Another board whip but not mine!
Teyo, the Shieldmage Hexproof plus wallsnot to bad...
And here is what I don't have in mine...
Thallid Shell-Dweller I really do this this is poop and we can have a better card I hate saplings lol
Meekstone Our walls are bigger than most creatures. With Tys out we run through them anyways.
Sacred Rites Deffo not to many ways for this to go wrong.
Sunpetal Grove open hand means this could come in tapped and not a fan of tapped chanced duals this is a fast deck.
Perimeter Captain not to keen on this card but who knows it's an option.
Wall of Deceit it's ability is poop. pulled him out.
This is our only differences in our decks. Like I said it's too strong to play with my friends, so I've been trying more casual decks for fun.

I even own Mentor of the Meek :) I thought about this card some time ago, but I think it is better to invest the mana in more defenders. I usually don't have any mana for the ability left, in my opinion Mentor would be good for the late game but won't bring pressure to the table. Again, that is just my opinion on him.
