Ok, you might be right.
I was thinking, "What if there was a 1-mana 1/1 with that ability?" It would be like Llanowar Elves , but it would make mana slower than sorcery speed. That seems fair. But then I thought: "What do I do on turn 2, then?" Well, the answer is obvious: Forest, Scale Up , Karn Liberated .
And I agree, that effect could be way too powerful.

Back during standard many years ago, I would use Zektar Shrine Expedition , drop a Evolving Wilds and another land, and the turn 4 play was: crack the enchantment to make the 7/1, attack them, then play Ooze Garden and activate it sacrificing the elemental to make an untapped 7/7 that didn't die at the end of turn.
I bring this up because you have enough high power "sacrifice this at end of turn" creatures, that could dominate a game if turned into permanent oozes.

Then, all you'd need is something to do with all those triggers.

One amusing budget creature in these kinds of decks is Saltskitter : they repeatedly enter the battlefield, and can cause tons of lifegain. Even more fun with multiples, because they exile eachother every turn.

There is enough graveyard hate in black you don't need to add green for Scavenging Ooze .

MagusOfHellfire Because you've been wrong since the release of Shadowmoor.
If a creature has a +1/+1 counter on it, and a -1/-1 counter on it, you remove both for no change to the creature.

With the insane number of instants and sorceries your deck has, Invade the City might make some stupid large zombie armies.

Lazotep Plating would be an nice addition to your deck, because it creates a token with Hexproof until end of turn, allowing you to Polymorph it the turn you make it without any worries it could get killed. It can also protect you from discard.

Why do we need to make new mechanics? Let's bring back some crappy mechanics and try to do them correctly.

ZendikariWol First, and most importantly: Storm Scale doesn't apply to custom sets. Second, that article and I have measured popularity in two vastly different ways: They determined popularity by polling players, I determined popularity by looking at the cards people play with in modern.
They didn't have the luxury of knowing what mechanics people would still enjoy years later: that article was written in 2016. They list "Rebound" as the most popular mechanic in the set, but the only Rebound spell we see in competitive Modern is Distortion Strike not even printed in that block.
We could argue about which method of determining popularity is the best, but judging from your "I'll just post a link as if this proves me right without any further elaboration" dishonest debate tactics, I don't think we'll get very far.

I disagree that Ferocious is not well-liked: it is overrepresented with modern staples: Temur Battle Rage , Stubborn Denial , Flamewake Phoenix (now obsoleted by Arclight Phoenix ) and I've seen Wild Slash in some budget sideboards.
Even if we dismiss the last two examples for being too rare, that means out of 20 total Ferocious cards printed, about 10% of all Ferocious cards are modern staples. Not even Infect can claim that kind of popularity, with arguably 5 cards, out of about 60 ( Inkmoth Nexus Glistener Elf Blighted Agent Viridian Corrupter and Carrion Call in some sideboards with control-heavy meta).
I'll agree that Formidable is not well liked, but only because there haven't been many cards printed with that ability.
