Hey came here to get some inspiration for my own sachi deck (I want to upgrade it from my budget to a slightly better deck), so I'll definitely put in that winter orb :)

My suggestion for your deck would be Jade Mage and Helix Pinnacle and depending on your playgroup a Sandwurm Convergence . Vigor is just a creature deck super star Imo.

Some good lands are Castle Garenbrig , Mosswort Bridge and Bala Ged Sanctuary

I would recommend an aristocratic build. You may choose to go spore counter route, which I'm not a huge fan of, but the following ones pull double duty (and I am a fan of):

On-theme Sac outlets that also make saprolings:

Deathspore Thallid: Great sac outlet and potential removal piece.

Savage Thallid: Another great sac outlet and protection piece.

Vitaspore Thallid: I think giving haste is the weakest effect of the bunch, this is just another budget on-theme sac outlet.

Budget sac payoffs,

Epicure of Blood and Marauding Blight-Priest: Help to increase the payoff of slimefoot and are so cheap they are essentially free (literally, ask anyone at your LGS for these, they have them and don't want them).

Falkenrath Noble: Who doesn't love life loss?

Poison-Tip Archer: Great blocker (reach and deathtouch? No one wants to lose there dragon to this) but this one starts to impact the budget.

Syr Konrad, the Grim: He just does soo much.

Vindictive Vampire: This guy should say life loss.... I mean, it's black and not red.

Zulaport Cutthroat: Classic but approaches a dollar.

Bastion of Remembrance: Possibly my favorite. Comes with free sac fodder on a permanent that doesn't die to Wrath of God.

Slime Foot god stuff,

Jade Mage: Back up slimefoot that does stuff at a discount.

Massacre Girl: Best board wipe in this build.

Verdant Force: It says EACH upkeep. Yes, each.

Gift of Doom: Cheap protection for slimefoot that has the added benefit of killing a saproling you already want dead.

Moldervine Reclamation: Card draw and life for just playing? Of course.

Snake Umbra: Protection and three cards every time you sac a saproling.

Sprout Swarm: Convoke makes this broken.

Some less budget friendly cards (all under $10, but above $1):

Ohran Frostfang: Turns each saproling into a card draw or a removal spell.

Pitiless Plunderer: Solid ramp.

Priest of Forgotten Gods: Under appreciated. This card does everything a black mage should be doing.

Tendershoot Dryad: Can win you the game on its own.

Black Market: Slime foot loves stupid amounts of mana.

Keen Sense: Insane card draw for 1 green mana.

Vraska, Golgari Queen: All abilities are helpful and the ult is just perfect. Tie in an Overrun effect on the same turn and you should win.

Casualties of War: Expensive to cast but worth it. Worth it every time.

Best of luck building.

multimedia thanks so much for your suggestions - I typically like to stay away from mana dorks because they're a lot weaker to boardwipes/removal than something like Springbloom Druid, which I actually want to be wiped away so I can get it back with Nethroi. However, I do think Paradise Druid is 100% worth it because of the hexproof for mutation, I didn't think about that.

As for Ghave, Guru of Spores, I do think that's a cool idea but Jade Mage accomplishes the same thing while being way less color-intensive, and costing less actual money (only a buck, but these things add up). Faeburrow Elder is very good, but again costs more than other stuff money-wise and as a mana dork is really weak to removal. Mindless Automaton I really like, that seems like a really cool way to get back something that either turns on dredge, or just gives me a free card and goes right back to the graveyard when Nethroi mutates. And lastly, Custodi Soulbinders is a fine card, but doesn't really fit with the theme or synergize with the deck - I can get it back for free, but once I get it back it's just a really expensive token generator that can't go infinite with Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies because that loop only generates infinite green.

As for the lands, I would rather buy 1-2 dollar cards that synergize with the deck and not just speed up my mana - that is something I will eventually upgrade, but probably not right now in the deck's lifecycle.

Thank you so much for the suggestions, there is some really good stuff in here that I would never have thought about putting in (namely Paradise Druid and Mindless Automaton, I think those two are both awesome and are way within the budget which is great).

I always pictured Champion of Lambholt mainly in a token deck, but with Ant Queen or Jade Mage my board would be unblockable pretty quick. I never realized the similarities between Zhur-Taa Druid and Klothys, God of Destiny.. that’s a change I will make for sure. Thanks

If you're going to be fungi tribal, run Thelon of Havenwood as your commander.

If you're going to be saproling tribal, Ghave makes more sense, although you'll probably want to lean away from fungi and into Tendershoot Dryad, Verdant Force, Verdant Embrace, Necrogenesis, Verdeloth the Ancient, Aura Mutation, Death Mutation, Jade Mage, Nemata, Grove Guardian, Seed Spark, and Morbid Bloom.

If you just want pure power, Ghave combos by accident. I'm not sure how popular he is now, but he was considered cEDH at one point. Check out his EDHREC page.

If you can generate and sac saprolings at a consistent rate Snake Umbra does some work refilling your hands.

I’ve also really liked Seedborn Muse and Wilderness Reclamation in my list. With Slimefoot, the Stowaway or Jade Mage out they allow you to dump mana into saproling production on opponents turns

I know it’s out of your cmc range but I really find Bolas's Citadel does a ton of work the moment it hits the table
