Creature — Fungus
When Tukatongue Thallid is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield.

Tukatongue Thallid Discussion

This is a fun concept. But even for ultra budget/casual, there are a couple things I think are worth pointing out:
- Jade Mage without any sort of mana ramp is quite weak. Since adding proper ramp (she's best when you can generate really large amounts of mana per turn) might ruin the budget, perhaps consider replacing her with something else.
- Thallid is also quite weak and slow without proper support (like other thallids or cards that interact with counters). Personally I'd replace it with Tukatongue Thallid

Hey man. Just wanted to let you know the interaction you have for this deck doesn't work the way you are thinking. It would be a great idea if it did. Since Essence of the Wild and all of the zero toughness creatures enter at the same time, Essence of the Wild's static ability isn't on the battlefield yet. Your zero toughness creatures will die due to state-based actions, and will NOT be a copy of Essence of the Wild. Love the idea if it would've worked though.
The link will take you to the Rules Q/A section that I asked if this interaction worked.
Suggestion for you as some replacements. Creatures that create tokens when they enter or die. Something like Blisterpod or Tukatongue Thallid with a sac outlet in the form of Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, or Nantuko Husk. That way, when you get Essence of the Wilds onto the battlefield, you simply sacrifice your low CMC creatures to create 6/6s.

So, im looking at this from a competitive modern standpoint, and you have it listed as "casual" in the description. i think to up it to somewhat competitive, some slight adjustments could be made, all while holding the theme and mechanics in place. Some choices of cards to add, in my opinion, to make the deck a little better are:
other general adds to consider for rounding out purposes or spicy flavor are Blisterpod (why not 4?), Mortarpod, Tukatongue Thallid, Nest Invader, Fleshbag Marauder, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Haruspex, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Carrier Thrall, Evolutionary Leap, Sultai Emissary, Bloodthrone Vampire, Bloodsoaked Champion, Scrapheap Scrounger, Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters.

Relentless Dead and Weatherseed Treefolk(though treefolk sadly doesn't trigger aluren) give you alternatives to Endless Cockroaches or just more redundancy to get that effect out(and has a nice effect on relentless of letting you bring back Carrion Feeder
Love Aluren shenanigans! :D

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
