Consuming Blob

Creature — Ooze

This creature's power is equal to the number of card types among cards in your graveyard and this creature's toughness is equal to that number plus 1.

At the beginning of your end step, create a green Ooze creature token with "This creature's power is equal to the number of card types among cards in your graveyards and this creature's toughness is equal to that number plus 1."

Hey, this usually doesn't get noticed by people, but you could swap Prey Upon for Blizzard Brawl and swap the basics for Snow-Covered Forests.

I also think Inscription of Abundance should be 4-of... it's too good and versatile.

And maybe 4 Scavenging Ooze since it can just randomly break graveyard decks.

I also don't know if it helps, but Umori, the Collector is an ooze...

And there are some bigger oozes like Aeve, Progenitor Ooze, Biogenic Ooze, Consuming Blob... but i think you'd need more lands to play those, maybe...

You should definitely go full on ooze tribal and add some ooze-payoffs. Aeve, Progenitor Ooze would be a great card. It's best if you have a storm count, but playing it into like three+ oozes on the board would already be fine. Consuming Blob and Biowaste Blob are expensive for what they do, but at least you get tokens and an actual lord. Experiment One is a great one-drop. Slurrk, All-Ingesting is another fun ooze. And Umori, the Collector is on-tribal ramp. You wouldn't even need to play it as a companion.

One final addition: Karametra's Acolyte might noch be an ooze, but the amount of green devition you'll propably have makes it obscenely good. And it's a lot cheaper than Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Those are some good suggestions and my group does play Planechase and Archenemy regularly to spice things up, they can be great fun. I've debated making this into a Commander deck because my group likes it allot and I only have two decks for it. But I'm not a huge fan of the format myself which is where the black and golgari colored maybes came from, So I don't think I'll ever pull that trigger.

Predator Ooze is in because it usually lasts until mid game and works as a really good early game shield (plus it's one of my cards because of the art work) but I agree about the other smaller ones. I think I agree with your assessment of Aeve, Progenitor Ooze and swapping it for another Consuming Blob would probably be the best move. Parallel Lives does allot of good work for this deck, especially with Ochre Jelly. Even more so if I slot in a Biogenic Ooze.

The rest are some real food for thought and I'll be considering them if I ever decide to do a shake up this old deck. As an aside I've also considered discussing using proxies with my group because there are some cards I'd love to try out but definitely can't afford, such as Gaea's Cradle, Cavern of Souls and Vampiric Tutor. I was looking at some from Taurus Proxies but they're currently taking a break of some sort.

Well, since you didn't hate what I said, I'm goona talk about some of the creatures now. But before that I just wanted to say I completely understand that you don't want to optmize this deck to the maximum, that's why I mostly suggested budget cards and avoid some bullshitly expensive cards such as Gaea's Cradle or Cavern of Souls. I'm trying my best to focus exclusively on your tribe. With that out of the way, let me proceed.

There a few less expensive, manawise, Oozes but you seem to be going for the heavier and more resilient ones. So there's quite a few that could be a blast.

  • Since your deck seems to want to play a longer game, I'd disconsider the smaller Oozes like Corrosive Ooze, Inexorable Blob and Predator Ooze. Since most of your creatures are big mana sinks, having smaller ones that want to attack doesn't seem like a good ideia (but if your experience says otherwise feel free to correct me)

  • I'd cut one Aeve, Progenitor Ooze because, even though it kinda cares about Oozes, it's more of a Storm card. However, I'd still keep one because I think it's pretty neat.

  • I think maxing out on Mitotic Slime and Consuming Blob would be hilarious. Imagine the amount of tokens that there would be on the battlefield. Additionally, Biogenic Ooze would crank your token production to eleven.

  • Scavenging Ooze is perfectly fine. However, if you ever want to just vary, Ravenous Slime could be fun but it's definetly not necessary.

  • Gelatinous Cube is a card I really, really love. The only problem is how to make space for it in the deck. Since you already have kind of a snow theme, maybe including Woodland Chasm + Into the North should make things easier to cast.

  • If, and only IF, you want to be really janky and make your friends laugh a lot, you could have some copies of S.N.O.T. and Vile Bile just for shits and giggles.

Again, I'm gonna say things little by little to make things easier to digest. Let me know what you think. I love casual thematic decks. If you want to have extra fun with your friends, try playing planechase and use this deck. I promise you it's gonna be ridiculously fun for everyone.

You have a lot of token support in Parallel Lives and Growing Ranks and Second Harvest. I think you should trim some of that and add more actual ooze creatures. Another reason I think you should trim the tokens theme is because there just aren't many oozes that make tokens.

Splitting Slime isn't legal, but the card isn't that good anyways. Consuming Blob is another fun ooze that makes copies of itself. You could also add Inexorable Blob, but this would require more of a graveyard build around. Some good oozes that aren't token themed are Predator Ooze (3-drop indestructible threat??) and Scavenging Ooze (grave hate on a stick that grows).

For the ramp package, Wild Growth isn't legal. I recommend adding 4x Utopia Sprawl and 4x Arbor Elf. I'd cut Llanowar Tribe. It isn't really helping much if you drop it on t3, and then use it on t4 to play a 5 drop. Might as well just run 1-drop mana dorks instead.

Oof, if only Tendershoot Dryad wasn't so expensive, I'd definitely consider him/her.

Maybe Consuming Blob with a few other tools instead? He has the same mana cost as Tendershoot Dryad but isn't as pricey. He doesn't make tokens as often, but he can still pull off some solid stuff if given the chance.

Maybe I can do an Ooze token sub-theme in general given the amount of support that strategy has.

Try Gelatinous Genesis, Miming Slime, also Consuming Blob would be really strong in tribal.

Yess, now it's Slime Time! Have you tried Consuming Blob, Aeve, Progenitor Ooze, and Voidslime?
