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.

Weird. I'll re-comment.

I was wondering why not Brutal Cathar  Flip over Gelatinous Cube? Also I'd recomment Agadeem's Awakening  Flip could swap a swamp out for 2 or something. I find Vanishing Verse really useful main or side boarded, aswell as Divine Smite sideboard for facing black decks. Before Liesa, Forgotten Archangel I used Kaya the Inexorable and I still think shes good. Im running 2 liesa, 1 kaya. I also like to use a Lolth, Spider Queen or two just because she's good. How well does Dungeon Crawler fare? I remember cutting mine for the Yuan-Ti Malison. I'd also recommend maining or siding a couple Soul Shatter.

instead of Gelatinous Cube why not Brutal Cathar  Flip ? Also i think Vanishing Verse is really good, atleast a sideboard. I run a similar deck, but include Yuan-Ti Malison mainboard and use Lolth, Spider Queen as well as Kaya the Inexorable who has helps creatures come back like Liesa, Forgotten Archangel. How well does Dungeon Crawler fare? I remember cutting it
