Tukatongue Thallid Discussion

Mitotic Slime comes to mind. Reef Worm is sorta like that, but in the wrong colors. Abzan Ascendancy/Golgari Germination/Gutter Grime/Requiem Angel are sorta close, Belfry Spirit turns the creature it haunts into a card like that, Brindle Shoat, Tuktuk the Explorer and Doomed Dissenter just get bigger. Liege of the Hollows gives everyone squirrels when it dies. Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, and Symbiotic Wurm turn into insects. Chasm Skulker explodes into a pile of squid (wrong colors again tho). Maalfeld Twins breaks apart into 2 zombies, and Mausoleum Guard into 2 spirits. Promise of Bunrei makes one of your dudes explode into spirits. Sporogenesis is kind of a cool card that makes your guys explode into saprolings on death. Sprouting Thrinax is good. Wurmcoil Engine is a popular one.Goblin Marshal/Mogg War Marshal makes goblins when he ETBs and dies. Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Hangarback Walker, and Hooded Hydra all work. Jotun Owl Keeper in blue again. Mongrel Pack is another one, as is Murder Investigation. Theres a whole bunch of "Penumbra" cards from odyssey that all make a black clone of themselves when they die (e.g Penumbra Wurm). Ulvenwald Mysteries turns each dead guy into a clue that it then turns into a soldier.
If I were to make a commander deck around this idea, I would go with a Jund, not Abzan, sacrifice deck led by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, or perhaps Shattergang Brothers. In addition to these you have a ton of guys that just make 1 token on death- Seed Guardian, Sifter of Skulls, Pawn of Ulamog, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, Myr Sire, etc.

Aristocrats is a fairly established archetype that does exactly what you are interested in -- sacrifice things for value. There are a number of different styles and color combinations you can run for this style of deck. But the ideas behind the deck are almost always the same: you want low drop recursive creatures or token generators (Tukatongue Thallid, Doomed Traveler, Blisterpod, Safehold Elite, Young Wolf, Voice of Resurgence, Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Bloodsoaked Champion, Mogg War Marshal, Lingering Souls, Promise of Bunrei, and Abzan Ascendancy), sacrifice engines (Viscera Seer, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Cartel Aristocrat, Nantuko Husk, Bloodthrone Vampire, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Butcher of the Horde), and ways to generate advantages off of the sacrifices (primarily Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat).
Some decks operate as an aggro deck, some operate as more of a midrange deck, and other still operate more along the lines of a combo deck. Depending on the style you want, and the color combination, I can give more direct advice. I just don't ant to type up a long list of tips and advice for a deck you don't want :P

i like the combo, but i think other landfall would be more helpful than a lot of the creatures
a really good one would be Baru, Fist of Krosa
Bramblesnap would help use them all etb for a beater right away
Tireless Trackerfor infinite draw/huge beater,
Retreat to Kazandu infinite life/huge beater,
Timber Protector help protect everything,\
Embodiment of Insight would help cash in immediately with bigger threats

Carrier Thrall, Nantuko Husk, Return to the Ranks are all cards to consider. IMO You should aim for Abzan instead of Mardu so you can use Collected Company, Abzan Ascendancy, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, etc. You might want to consider low cost sac outlets like Viscera Seer instead of big creatures like Butcher of the Horde

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.

Let's say that I have an attacking 1/1 creature like Tukatongue Thallid and for some reason I decide to back it out of combat for some strategic purpose with Burst of Strength before the blocker can inflict damage. Is this possible?

Hey thanks for the feedback! These are some great suggestions. Black Market seems like a perfect fit. I especially like the Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat/Falkenrath Noble simply because they're cheap guys that do nice things while they're around, but I won't be heartbroken if I end up sacrificing them. And messing with this deck a bit is making me think that my concern that there aren't enough little guys was right, so I might try pulling some of the big stuff for either some of your suggestions or some cheap guys that I already have on me. Tukatongue Thallid/Llanowar Elves/Elves of Deep Shadow/Rendclaw Trow were on the original list and didn't make the final cut, but maybe they deserve to be in there.
Any thoughts on which of the big guys might be worth cutting? They all seem like they fit pretty well...

Sweet, I've always thought Scarscale Ritual would be neat in an undying deck. You don't really have enough undying creatures to use it though. Since your Mana base is so solid you might want to swap out Tukatongue Thallid or Blisterpod for Strangleroot Geist. It's a pretty aggressive Undying creature. Hex Parasite also has a lot of synergy with undying creatures. Just a few ideas.
