Hey there! Mushroom time is party time with these fun guys.
Okay to make up for the horrible pun I'm going to give some suggestions. You have a lot of spore counter buildup here, and these need cultivating time to reap the rewards. I'd recommend more Proliferate to accelerate how many spore counters you can get. You currently have three accelerants, Winding Constrictor, Karn's Bastion and Sporesower Thallid in the deck. How about Grim Affliction, Spread the Sickness, Plaguemaw Beast, Smell Fear, Evolution Sage, and Throne of Geth?
What is Tainted Strike in the deck for at the moment? It doesn't look like you capitalize on wither or poison counters with this deck, so I wouldn't route the deck down that road.
The Elvish Farmer is a nice spore counter addition, but card cost is high for something you can live without.
Would having a Barter in Blood interest you? I've noticed you don't have as many Black cards in the deck, and it'd be useful for more sac opportunities that also hurt your opponent.
I am all for budget decks and think this looks very promising without breaking the bank. Good job and happy harvesting.

thefiresoflurve - Howdy, thanks for the comment! I’ve certainly considered adding more than Sword of Truth and Justice, but as of yet, I’m not entirely sure what I’d want. As for Throne of Geth, it’s pretty good on the whole, especially since I can throw treasures into it. It’s had a handful of games where it has been a little lackluster, so I am keeping an eye on it. Worst case is that I can at least sacrifice it to itself for one proliferate trigger.
Coward_Token - That’s a pretty solid two-drop. I was a bit hesitant about it at first, but it’s honestly probably going to get enough hits in to justify. Thanks for the input!

Have you considered adding in a little bit of evasion for commander damage? I think it could be viable given your commander already has protection abilities. I just don't know if there are really slots for it.
Also, is Hidden Stockpile the only generator of artifact creatures? If so, I'd consider swapping out Throne of Geth since it doesn't have a ton of good sac targets in here, and there also seems to not be much artifact recursion. Am I missing something in that?

Legion Lieutenant is most of the reason to be in white/black - vamps get good keywords, add in some P/T and you can run away with the game.
If you're trying for sorins, I'd look at proliferate options - finding space for a Karn's Bastion in the lands, Throne of Geth + blood tokens, or Tezzeret's Gambit can do a lot, making your entire board big and turning sorin's -2s into -1.
Also, yes fixing is great, its usually worth having one or two basics for the inevitble Path to Exile type effects.

I don't know if you're in the market for any more infinite combos, but I actually came up with one earlier this week and I think you could try it out for size if you'd like.
It uses Throne of Geth and either Pentavus or Thopter Squadron to infinitely Proliferate. You need any artifact that can remove charge counters or 1/1 counters to add mana, such as Pentad Prism, Cryptic Trilobite, or Crystalline Crawler. The trilobite will give you infinite mana that you can spend on activated abilities and I'm sure you could win from there. The key piece is Dross Scorpion, which will untap your throne every time you sac an artifact creature. If you don't have the mana producers you can still Proliferate as many times as you have mana, which is a crazy good rate!
Is it a good combo? Probably not, seeing as it needs 4 pieces plus a board state that can take advantage of all the Proliferation, but I would love to see someone pull it off. I kind of live for jank lol.

Honestly, I’d run 4x Mana Leak in lieu of Annul and Dispel. If you really feel the need for a 1 mana counterspell, run Spell Pierce. The others are much more situational, and while they’re cheaper than Mana Leak it’s unlikely you’ll be playing multiple spells early on and so it doesn’t really matter. Now if you only play casually and know the makeup of your friends’ decks, then that might be different; otherwise cut 4 Annul and 4 Dispel for 4 Mana Leak, 2 Spell Pierce and 2 more Throne of Geth.

For your first deck this isn’t bad at all. Significantly better than my own first efforts. This is just an idea, but maybe you could replace 4 lands with some of the new artifact lands. They’ll help boost your artifact count to make Throne of Geth more viable, as that’s one of your most cost effective ways to increase that poison counter total. Then you could add a full playset of the throne, making proliferate a bit more viable here.

This looks like it could definitely be scary once it gets going. Very dedicated to its theme.
From a general construction sense, it could probably use a few less lands, a bit more ramp and card draw, and a few less cards on the top end (the mana curve leans high).
Some good mana staples that would help and fit the theme: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Solemn Simulacrum, Fertilid, Gyre Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Incubation Druid, Rampant Growth
Since your goal is to get poison counters on ASAP (so that proliferate matters), stuff like Ichor Rats and Plague Stinger would be good additions. Grafted Exoskeleton and Phyresis can make it so some of your other creatures can contribute to the poison damage count. Viridian Corrupter and Relic Putrescence both give you a way to give poison counters while also serving as artifact removal of a sort.
For cards to potentially remove, there are a few that fit the theme, but may be harder to get the benefit from. Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Second Chance don't do too much for you. Door of Destinies doesn't really have a good tribe to name.
There is a sort of sacrifice sub-theme going on that doesn't feel like it fully pans out. The Arcbound creatures are on the expensive side and you don't have a ton of artifact creatures to move the counters onto. Plus, if they hit for regular damage, they're not going to contribute to your infect plan. Throne of Geth and Plaguemaw Beast give repeatable proliferate, but you don't have a ton of things that you want to sacrifice, or ways to get things back from the graveyard to recur them. Martyr for the Cause and Roalesk, Apex Hybrid are only really good if you get exactly Plaguemaw Beast.
