Description

When thallid's meet efficency only bittersweet suffering can be the result. Also it goes without saying but... THERE IS A FUNGUS AMOUNG US (I would be remiss to not include that joke).

If you wish to leave suggestions below please suggest which cards I should replace them for, and if you like the deck feel free to +1 Upvote and Follow for future content additions.

Updates

I have trimmed down many of the higher mana. Cost cards in favor of some new cards that help to accelerate this construction and bring the average CMC below 2.

So this should go without saying (as the deck is listed in the proper hubs) but this is a modern deck, thus vintage cards are not legal in the modern format.

My apologies I didn't realize that was a vintage card.

I like Your deck! +1 frome me. If you find out you need more card-drawing (as the deck seems pretty fast), Inspiring Call could be a good supplement.

Unfortunately my creatures produce spore counters and not +1/+1 counters thus Inspiring Call would not function consistently or well in this deck. That being said for the same mana cost Psychotrope Thallid tends to draw me enough cards to keep pace.

Neat deck! I run a similar one, just without black, using things like Doubling Season and more upkeep abuse. All the Upkeeps. Ever.

I feel that doubling season is generally too slow and easily removed for a deck of this type thus my inclusion of the Winding Constrictor over season. As well casual decks in my eyes should be relatively inexpensive which Doubling Season is not.

Sprout Swarm would work well in here. I have had much success with it in my saproling deck

I'm not sure you need the Ancestral Visions in this list. More Psychotrope Thallids would likely work just as fine. Leyline of Lifeforce could be replaced by using 2 Cavern of Souls in the MD to make space in your SB for some artifact/enchantment destruction. I really like this list though, I may need to try it.

I switched to Ancestral Vision in favor of Psychotrope Thallid as this deck is a slower build and often can fall prey to over casting due to the relatively low cmc. Visions simply helps to round out this issue, it however can be substituted for a more budget friendly alternative.

Understandable. I'm also curious about Tukatongue Thallid. Why play it over Thallid in this list? You don't have any sac outlets for fungi, so Thallid seems a little more synergistic with the counter-accumulation. However, If you were to run something like Fallen Ideal I could understand its inclusion along with Blood Artist.

solid deck, I was making a thallid deck and was suprised when i went to post mine that this was the one above it, i'll let it rain supreme i'll ask for help on another deck :)

@GeminiSpartanX, There was a point in time in which I did run Thallid over Tukatongue Thallid however what I found was Tuka was generally more impactful not early and late game. Tuka could offer me an effective turn one blocker that would produce a second blocker on death which given the right circumstances could be utilized even further for activation effect on my many other thallid (this was generally better than Thallid as I often did not want to block with a producer but would often have to vs aggro). The end result for Tuka was that it simply helped me get off the ground early which is something this deck struggles with as it is a much slower build than most would realize.

Have you considered dropping the fists of ironwood for a playset of collected company? It would help you get more bodies on the board and thin out the deck more.

ArchFline says... #15

@youhoo2645 I have considered the option but a play set is far to much for a deck of 24 creatures, due largely because most of my creature base does nothing upon entering the field reducing the core usefulness of Collected Company which exists to add an explosive aspect to a deck. Overall Fists of Ironwood are simply more directly impactful as it have far greater synergy with my core strategy.

Awesome, seems really interesting. What about Corpsejack Menace to help double up those tokens. Think might be a little slow but its an option I guess. Nice deck though. #Upvoted

ArchFline says... #17

Sadly the thalliads use spore counters not +1/+1 counters meaning that Corpsejack Menace can not cause them to gain more counters. Otherwise I would be utilizing Hardened Scales.

Ohmarow says... #18

Maybe it's just me but how has no one mentioned "Mycoloth" as a possible addition? Its a little pricey compared to other cards here but it could not only speed up token production or with "Blood Artist" help knock off an opponent by allowing you to sac 5 or so saproling tokens with the promise of 10 next upkeep, dealing 5 damage, per Artist in play. Version life gain you might be able to even the odds or outright knock them out. Id even personally consider "Marrow Chomper" for life gain of my own.

Corpsejack Menace Rot Shambler Sporesower Thallid are fungi friends that could be useful.

ArchFline says... #20

@willis1234 While those options are thematic they are neither upgrades or side-grades to the current strategy. Modern is a very fast passed and aggressive format so win-more cards often only serve as a burden taking up space that could be used to bolster consistency or our ability to disrupt an opponents field.

Also as a side note, Corpsejack Menace adds +1/+1 counters when such counters aren't placed onto a permenant but has not ability to do so when "Spore" counters are placed. Which is effectively what we do thus the inclusion of our snake over the fungus.

ArchFline says... #21

@Ohmarow The reason why neither Mycoloth or Marrow Chomper have been mentioned is because the modern formate is a very fast passed format and so one that which easily marginalized any strategy that rely on high CMC cards. The only time you see competitively played high CMC cards are when you have ways to quickly accelerate ones mana base or methods to cheat them in for cheap, neither of which do we focus on or have room for in this stredgy without acting as a detriment to our core win condition.
