Spontaneous Generation Discussion
3 months ago
With the amount of Saprolings you can generate, Life and Limb might be something to consider for Baru -- It's highly risky admittedly, but if it works the way you think it'd work, something like Spontaneous Generation/Saproling Symbiosis or Second Harvest suddenly becomes an even bigger threat.
Love your work, MH, keep it up!

I run slimefoot as my favorite go to deck. Look up Optimus Slime Prime Time. A couple cards to heavily consider: Spontaneous Generation and Saproling Symbiosis. These two cards can produce saprolings in a hurry. I know cards like bankrupt in Blood and altars reap look good but Skullclamp is far better as essentially its cast and first use will net you exactly the same amount of cards as altars reap ans will only to continue to do so the longer it sticks around. The Best draw engine for slimefoot is Keen Sense. Each time you sac a saproling, it deals 1 damage to each opponent, meaning keen sense triggers three times for each saproling death, so you draw up to 3 cards per saproling. Snake Umbra does the same thing but with a little more protection and a small power boost at the expense of more mana. Seedborn Muse is a powerhouse in slimefoot as she allows you to just pump whatever mana you have into slimefoot or jade made to just churn out tokens. I won't bore you with a bunch of other suggestions. Just check out my deck if youd like. I like to think its decently optimized. And wins consistently

probly cut Rankle, Master of Pranks for Phyrexian Altar and cut Winding Way for Pitiless Plunderer, i would cut Catacomb Sifter for Korvold, Fae-Cursed King mithg cut Falkenrath Noble for a Woodland Bellower as some great target like Grim Haruspex Imperial Recruiter Blood Artist and the like . ON a diferent note i would personaly( it is just my opignion feel free to disagree) change the foder part to make it creature with biger upside like Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Nesting Dragon Spontaneous Generation but then if you go with these change you would have too boost the ramp since they have a higher mana cost then what you are runing

Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions!
Yeah Zombie Infestation is definitely one of my favorites.
At first, I was skeptical about the Syr Konrad, the Grim idea, because it seemed to be doing exactly what our combo was doing, and I didn't want to use up another card slot for another Altar of Dementia , but after some thought, I'm starting to reconsider. Maybe Konrad doesn't need a combo to be deadly. I'm picturing a scenario with Konrad on the battlefield, and then resolving a Living Death . Or even just drawing a whole bunch of cards, then discarding a whole bunch of creatures. It'll be something interesting to try out.
I put Desecrated Tomb into my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, and it did really well, but I don't think it'll do too well in Hogaak's case. In general, I try to stray away from exiling creatures from my graveyard, but even if I did start exiling them, I don't picture myself getting that many bats....
I've never been too much into the token build. I usually don't need a whole bunch of tokens to replay Hogaak, though there are a couple times when I'm short on creatures. I don't think I'll need the Plague of Vermin or the Spontaneous Generation if I'm being honest.
I feel like for each person who makes this deck, they have to make the decision between Hermit Druid and Traverse the Outlands . I personally think I'm fine without the Hermit, so that's why I don't include it and have the Traverse instead.
Now Cadaverous Bloom .... Wow. Just wow. I think this card is busted, and I'm surprised that this is the first time I've ever heard of it. I know it exiles, but that's a small enough price to pay when you're drawing 8 cards a turn. A definite include.
I think I've put in and taken out Skirge Familiar twice now. It's good, but sometimes I need to replace it with some better stuff. For example, that Cadaverous Bloom you just mentioned! If I have the space, I'll add it in.
I think Living Death is enough. I don't particularly need a whole bunch of mass recursion.
Again, thanks for the suggestions! I know I'm rejecting a whole lot of them, but I'd rather stay honest, than give people my false opinions. But that doesn't mean people shouldn't give me a whole bunch of suggestions; the more the merrier!

Great list +1
I'm building Hogaak this week and I'm excited to finally play Zombie Infestation .
How would you rate the following in Hogaak?
Cadaverous Bloom ...for the combo turns?

The biggest thing you could do to make the deck "more competitive" is moving away from fungui and towards saprolings. You'll get more milage out of Morbid Bloom , Saproling Burst , Saproling Symbiosis , Spontaneous Generation , Tendershoot Dryad , and token enablers like Parallel Lives than you will out of fungus stuff more suited to the Thelon of Havenwood deck.

Cards I'm thinking about putting on my chopping block.
That is 1 removal 1 non-combat based damage 2 token generators and 1 life gain.
Cards I'm interested in.

Arcane Adaptation is one of the key cards in this deck and allow crazy things to happen in this deck. It allows Seahunter to tutor any creature and put them onto the battlefield allowing any combo to go off. It allows all of my tokens to become merfolk allowing Lullmage Mentor to in a sense be able to answer anything after Spontaneous Generation creates at least 30 tokens from the immense card draw this deck does. The deck isn't super competitive where it wins on turns under 4, but it usually wins around 7-10 if gone unanswered.
