Scavenging Ooze Discussion
6 days ago
Okay, quick update. I decided not to get Seedborn Muse because I would rather get some other cheaper cards instead. Maybe I will get it in a few months because it can work in almost any green deck I feel like. Still waiting to get Ghalta, Primal Hunger Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and 4 Utopia Sprawl . Ive just been adding in a bunch of high mana stuff in the meantime because it fun with all of the mana generated. Also, I changed the sideboard to all of the cards I actually have that I think could work well and the maybeboard for wishful cards. Even when I do get those other cards, there are still 3 open spots because I feel like the Prowling Serpopard aren't always necessary. Currently, I put Artisan of Kozilek Elvish Piper and Vivien, Monsters' Advocate just to promote putting out creatures and getting one back if needed. Im not sure about keeping these 3 though so I was wondering if anyone thinks there are better options among my sideboard. I like the idea of using non tap activated abilities because of the excess mana so because those 6 cards arent here yet, I have been playing Ant Queen and Scavenging Ooze , also I just found a Savageborn Hydra that follows the same concept of using massive mana. Also could swap Silklash Spider with one of those so I can ease the flying in some cases. Polis Crusher Ruric Thar, the Unbowed are kind of more defensive cards for preventing the scary instants/enchantments/sorceries my friends have. The only thing holding me up about this is that annihilator will get rid of this stuff anyways eventually but polis targets it faster and ruric makes them doubt using it at all. Ulamog's Crusher Breaker of Armies are just other huge things but not sure they beat out the other 8+ mana creatures in the deck already. Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig is another one I am on the fence about because it could be huge if I get it early but its unlikely that will happen and I would almost always rather get a different legendary with Time of Need . Endbringer is kind of a nice one because of the constant damage and/or draw ability. Toski, Bearer of Secrets can also be used for drawing cards but I think I may have that covered at this point. ALSO, thinking of either trying to throw together a pauper or edh deck. Never tried edh but it seems really fun with the extra life and just having more variety because of the diversity of cards. Pauper also just seems like a fun and cheap way to balance the playing field so you never know what's going to happen. Also, I feel like it would eliminate really overpowered stuff so that would extend games too. Im sure Ill need help again so look out for that! Thank you guys again for the feedback :)

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .
At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

JuventasMTG: They are actually basic land rarity, if you check the rarity letter on the bottom left. Tappedout does pauper rarity automatically to make life easier, so anything that isn't a common is automatically flagged as illegal.
UndeadSpider1990: Should be fixed.
TheVectornaut: Names cannot be changed, they are set in stone. And further, once a card has been been made it cannot be deleted. That incorrect card name has been a synonym of Scavenging Ooze since the mistake was made ... buuuut it looks like the synonyms aren't exactly working for redirecting at the moment.

Just submitted a fix for M21 Scavenging Ooze changing the name from the incorrect "Scavenger Ooze" and adding the ID. I thought I was going crazy for a second there and that I'd been referring to the card by the wrong name for years. XD

Hey! If you aren't necessarily running a Bear subtheme, maybe you should swap some of them for vanilla elves. You can strengthen your Elf synergy with Cylian Elf and Elvish Warrior , for example. Maybe a card like Nullhide Ferox works too. Your opponents may hesitate to activate its ability (if they activate, it loses hexproof but becomes unblockable), but I don't know if it is good or fun enough.
I think that other token generators can work very well with your commander. Avenger of Zendikar is a very strong creature that puts a lot of 0/1 tokens without abilities, so they are buffed by your commander. Deranged Hermit and Deep Forest Hermit can be very powerful in your strategy because they swarm the board, and G likes creatures on the field (you can use card draw like Shamanic Revelation or buffing effects like Beastmaster Ascension with better results). For card draw, maybe you should use Regal Force or something like it (benefit from tokens) or Guardian Project (tokens won't trigger it, but other creatures will).
If you go more for a token strategy, token doublers can help you a lot (that is, if you already have them or Quandrix commander from C21 didn't spike them). I don't know if the "return creatures from graveyard to your hand" is that strong. If it doesn't, maybe a token strategy works better. If you think that it goes against the idea of the deck (using cards forgotten in our boxes for ages), then really it's the case of running a lot of vanilla creatures (although I think that you should use them in the ideal quantity).
Don't know if it's worth, but you aren't running any boardwipes. Maybe Oblivion Stone helps you reset the board if opponents' boards become a problem. Other problem I see is recursion. I think that Eternal Witness is a green staple and maybe you should use it. Maybe swap a land for Bala Ged Recovery Flip. To deal with graveyards, maybe Scavenging Ooze is a great addition.
I don't know if cards like Blossoming Defense or Autumn's Veil worth the slots. If you go for a token, more go-wide strategy, maybe lose a creature or other does not affect your game thaaat much. Maybe you should swap them for card draw or recursion cards.
That's all I can think for now. Hope it helps :)
