Sporecrown Thallid Discussion

I guess this is a deck you build from cards you had lying around in your binder. Or just a fun casual deck. I do have some tips for you for this deck.
I can see you have quite a few cards that you have 1 of and not a playset which is fine just less effeicent but i cant force you to buy a playset of Primeval Bounty (i guess that is your wincon alongside Fungal Sprouting .)
More ramp is key for big bois green. The more lands you have the more big bois you can play out. I would personally recommend Nature's Lore or Skyshroud Claim if you wanna go for the "search" tactic or just go for mana dorks some like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic they are really good for ramping and in late game chump blocking.
Saproling synergy if thats your ULTIMATE GAME PLAN. Cards like Sporecrown Thallid is really good.

Using utopia mycorn to power out Tendershoot Dryad feels like a fairly solid idea- but I'd feel more comfortable running this with other 5 drops in that slot, and other tools to power it out. Doubling season is similarly amazing, but due to it being traditionally used to insta-ult plainswalkers, you need to build around it so that it doesn't get outraced/disrupted. I don't feel that the rest of the deck supports that as a plan, and would set it aside for a different list.
I'd look at Mycoloth as additional copies of tendershoot- its a little more vulnerable to disruption, but is strong if it survives your opponents turn. With enough duress variants it should be able to provide value.
Green (x) ramp traditionally runs Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl for a very fast start, but B/G usually runs low to the ground creatures- figuring out a balance between creatures to get you to your five drops and spells to protect them will be the battle here.
In terms of saproling tribal cards to glance over, Fungal Plots , Life and Limb , Saproling Migration , Korozda Guildmage Scatter the Seeds , Sporecrown Thallid and combo-favourite Sprout Swarm all exist.
If you are looking at budget and where to spend money in a deck- focus on the manabase. Horizon lands look really strong, fetches always do well, and when you want to play something else they can usually be swapped right across.

I have been looking for a fun deck to play every now and again as an alternative to my current main deck. I used your deck as a basis for Soppy Sappy which looks like it could be great fun to play.
The focus is still on swarming with Saprolings, but Sporecrown Thallid gives them all +1/+1s and after attacking with a 1/1 token, I can swing in with Bladebrand or Status / Statue to give it deathtouch. Any suggestions?

Hey, consider adding sac outlets? Creatures or other cards that have an ability to sacrifice a Sap:
- Ashnod's Altar
- Deathspore Thallid
- Vitaspore Thallid
- Viscera Seer
- Carrion Feeder
- Evolutionary Leap
- Krav, the Unredeemed
The nice thing about these cards are they are all repeatable sac and most have no mana cost activations to sac a Sap. Ashnods is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it's very good with Slimefoot since you make colorless mana when you sac a creature. Skullclamp is amazing draw with 1/1 Sap tokens or sac outlets.
Budget lands to consider:
- Command Tower: one of the best lands in Commander.
- Llanowar Wastes
- Tainted Wood
- Hissing Quagmire
- High Market: sac outlet.
Other Sap themed cards to consider adding:
- Druidic Satchel
- Tendershoot Dryad
- Sprout Swarm
- Scatter the Seeds
- Saproling Migration
- Sporecrown Thallid
- Necrogenesis: exile your opponent's creature in their graveyard to make a Sap.
Cards that give you a repeatable source of Saps for no or little mana cost are very good: Satchel/Tendershoot/Mycoloth/Necrogenesis
Other cards that have good interaction with Saps to consider:
Other good support cards:
- Eternal Witness
- Golgari Charm
- Beast Within
- Golgari Signet
- Seasons Past
- Nature's Claim
- Kodama's Reach
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Deathrite Shaman
- Elves of Deep Shadow
- Elvish Mystic
- Fertile Ground
- Read the Bones
- Diabolic Intent
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
Intent is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it has a very powerful effect when you sac a Sap.
I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Actually SovietPuma I find that Fungal Plots is incredible (albeit requiring a little bit of setting up). Once you have Slimefoot, the Stowaway out, you can use the Saproling tokens to block opponents' attacks; once the attacks are blocked, but before combat damage, activate the draw effect of Plots. You take no damage from 2 attacks, draw a card, and (because of Slimefoot) gain 4 life and deal 2 damage- and if you have stuff in the graveyard, you can rinse and repeat.

Where've you played this deck list? I'd like to know how it performed, if you wouldn't mind.
As to your points: Llanowar Elves serve well in dropping a turn two beater like Yavimaya Sapherd or Deathbloom Thallid, or even a turn three Torgaar, Famine Incarnate if we get lucky. I'm not sure I would want to cut them, but I'll definitely keep it in mind as I continue with this deck.
Carnage Tyrant is pretty far out of my price range, as is Assassin's Trophy. Getting two of each would actually double the total cost of this deck, and honestly, I don't really want to drop the fungus theme. Like, yeah, big dino is big, but it just isn't what I want here, you know?
Finally, Gruesome Menagerie seems like a pretty cool card, I'm just uncertain that I have appropriate targets for it. The absolute best-case christmas land of casting it would be turn five, bring back Llanowar Elves, Sporecrown Thallid, and either Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Deathbloom Thallid, or Yavimaya Sapherd, and I think I would almost always prefer to drop a Tendershoot Dryad instead of bringing those back. Especially post-boardclear, since I would definitely be losing all of the saproling tokens I had on board, and building them back up would be imperative.
