Smothering Abomination Discussion

I'd go up to 4 Village Rites .

Card suggestions: Mortician Beetle , Pawn of Ulamog , Smothering Abomination , new card Bone Shards. (tappedout doesn't have bone shards but u can google it, it's basically bone splinters but lets you discard a card or sac a creature, and kills planeswalkers too)

Daemogoth Titan reminds me of this 9/9 elemental from shadowmoor or one of those sets thats B/G hybrid mana and makes you sacrifice a creature whenever it attacks but I forgot what it is. Nevermind it's Doomgape which is kinda bad so scratch that. For some reason my memory thought it was 4-5 cmc.

Looks good so far. Personally I would make these swaps:

  • Deathbloom Thallid -> Keen Sense ; Keen Sense is super strong on Slimefoot, while Deathbloom is a pretty weak effect.

  • Yavimaya Sapherd -> Snake Umbra ; same as above. "Sapherd" is a cute name though D:

  • Tukatongue Thallid -> Perilous Forays ; Tukatongue is cheap but a one-time effect. Forays is a sac outlet and increases your sap production over time via ramp.

  • Jade Mage -> Illusionist's Bracers ; Bracers are a better cost-reduction of Slime's ability than Jade Mage.

  • Verdeloth the Ancient -> Second Harvest ; Harvest is cheaper and will likely give you more saprolings.

  • Korozda Guildmage -> Heartstone ; I doubt you would want to use Korozda's abilities that often.

  • Vitaspore Thallid -> Rings of Brighthearth ; the spore-storing thallids are pretty slow. I think Rings is a better option here for faster sap production.

  • Night Soil -> Song of Freyalise ; Night Soil's effect is pretty narrow and I doubt it will make you many saps, if any. Song of Freyalise is pretty strong here, allowing your saps to make more saps via Slimefoot.

  • Morbid Bloom -> Druids' Repository ; similar to above.

  • Sporeweb Weaver -> Black Market ; I doubt Sporeweb will generate many saps for you. Black Market definitely will.

  • Thelon of Havenwood -> Pitiless Plunderer ; Thelon isn't that impactful while Plunderer is super strong here.

  • Sporesower Thallid -> Smothering Abomination

  • Sporoloth Ancient -> Fungal Plots

  • Thallid Omnivore -> Priest of Forgotten Gods

  • Thallid Shell-Dweller -> Seedborn Muse

  • Druidic Satchel -> Species Specialist

Here are some less-vital swaps I'd make as well:

Also just noticed you already have Fungal Plots, my bad. Maybe Carnival of Souls ? Risky card but it has infinite combo potential (e.g. Carnival + Utopia Mycon + Illusionists Bracers + Slimefoot = you win). Even outside of the coumbo it is decent since it increases sap production and Slime's lifegain effect can mitigate Carnival's downside somewhat.

jeannieboef absolutely valid concerns there. Viscera Seer helps smooth draws as well, so there's that. But I totally agree having a draw engine is very important, and one of the reasons I recommend using cards like Smothering Abomination and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as sacrifice sources as well

Scavenging Ooze is a good card, but doesn't play into the theme. Don't take it out necessarily, just something to keep in mind. Altar of Dementia would be an all-star in this deck. Fiend Hunter is kinda absurd. You can sac it before you exile, so the creature is permanently exiled. Disciple of Bolas is great because it gives you repeatable card draw in creature form which is huge for this deck.

Other good cards (some are around $5 but might be worth splurging for): Solemn Simulacrum, Stitcher's Supplier, Zulaport Cutthroat, Grim Haruspex, Ashnod's Altar, Vraska, Golgari Queen, Buried Alive, Viscera Seer, Pitiless Plunderer, Dictate of Erebos, Pawn of Ulamog, Smothering Abomination (this one triggers for any type of sacrificing), Archon of Justice, and Stonehorn Dignitary

In general, you have more noncreatures than I think is optimal. I could be wrong, and it's your deck. Build it how you want, but I think this deck excels with a higher creature count. If it's a creature it's repeatable and still usable if milled. Noncreatures aren't. For instance, I like Farhaven Elf more than Harrow because it is a creature.

Looking over your deck, you don't have many actual ways to sacrifice creatures. You have a couple that self sac, such as Caustic Caterpillar, and Carrion Feeder, but you definitely need more. Cards like Viscera Seer, Altar of Dementia, Ashnod's Altar, Woe Strider, Fanatical Devotion, Sadistic Hypnotist, and Stronghold Assassin are needed to make this a sac deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. This is a good budget version of Teysa and you have several nice cards.

Some lower CMC cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for these:

Good luck with your deck.
