card draw in green Beast Whisperer Shamanic Revelation Kenrith's Transformation Endless Atlas is good in a mono color deck, Key to the City is great for looting and also getting creatures through to get that poison in there. Snake Umbra for getting card draw while also protecting your commander. Keeper of Fables maybe seeing as you run alot of non human

I just also thought of War Room good land, your in green and can afford this form of card draw
Castle Garenbrig is a great way to "ramp".

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

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

Your list looks good so far. Personally I would forego the upkeep fungi and utilize Slimefoot + mana boosters to make saps. I recommend these swaps:
Sporesower Thallid -> Pitiless Plunderer
Thelonite Hermit -> Utopia Mycon
Metallic Mimic -> Keen Sense (this card is super strong on Slimefoot)
Rot Shambler > Snake Umbra (similar to Keen Sense, very strong)
Evolution Sage -> Fungal Plots
Muraganda Petroglyphs -> Illusionist's Bracers
Contagion Clasp -> Rings of Brighthearth
Umezawa's Jitte -> Heartstone
Death Mutation -> Seedborn Muse
Greater Good -> Perilous Forays
Sporoloth Ancient -> Druids' Repository
Sporecrown Thallid -> Wilderness Reclamation
Thallid Germinator -> Cryptolith Rite
Thallid Shell-Dweller -> Song of Freyalise
Korozda Guildmage -> Bear Umbra
Thallid Omnivore -> Black Market
Also I would definitely find room for Zulaport Cutthroat!!! Maybe take out Karn's bastion since you have plenty of other lands?

Ogre Menial and any other infect creatures could sac rocks to cause infect damage.
I bet there are a few "cause damage" effects that do not require combat damage (the ones i usually use are mostly blue). Snake Umbra comes to mind.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions SirQuixano! I totally missed that Ivy Lane Denizen puts the counter on any target creature, not just the creature that entered the battlefield, with Aerie Ouphes it'd be a wincon in its own right!
I did test with Bramble Elemental a while back, but noticed there weren't really enough Auras in the deck to get much value out of it. I'll give it another try with the new Auras and see how it works out.

I'd personally recommend Aerie Ouphes for any Renata deck, especially one with the Denizen, as its one of the few infinite combos in non-blue in pauper EDH. I'd also recommend Bramble Elemental to strap auras on, as well as the totem armor enchantments Snake Umbra and Spider Umbra.
