Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Feral Thallid from Fallen Empires; while this card is smaller in by -1/-1, it makes up for that by making 1/1 Saprolings like all good Thallids should...plus it gets to regenerate any thallid!

This isn't just a big beater. As Beekhead said, with Mycoloth or even lesser saproling generators like Verdant Force and any creature that has been enchanted by a Verdant Embrace, Savage Thallid has a huge number of saprolings it can use to make your creatures nigh-unstoppable. The only thing better in green than overwhelming someone with saprolings is overwhelming them with squirrels.

the big beater in any fungus deck, but really, he is here to block and protect your saproling makers

the beater in a fungus deck is whoever you played strength in numbers on

This + Mycoloth = All of your opponents pooping themselves.

This thing totally outclasses Feral Thallid

This fella is very impressive. I have to say I wasn't sure if I wanted him in or not in my Fungus deck.

Well lets see, the mana cost to power/toughness is fair like it used to be. There are a few things that are killer to me

1, his toughness is too low, I mean I do want a Savage Thallid to beat with, but at 4/3 I think he would be a lot better. As it stands quite a bit of mass removal is -2/2 damage/etc.

2, at five he just doesn't have the ability you want. It would be overall better I think to have his ability switched with Thallid Germinator, at the start you can protect a lot of different units with the regeneration and later pump what you want to be 'savage'

3, his ability is somewhat narrow, usually the biggest problem for most Saproling decks is board sweeps, as said before, quite a bit are either 2 damage, or don't allow regeneration. Usually Thallid Germinator can sac a sap and save the creature without tapping ... (see all)

(other than Mycoloth, but I hate that op-ish card its not really a fungas)

What creature type would you recommend for a creature that loves counters and poops out saps like that?
Yes, he's not as inherently slow growth as the rest of the thallids... but he is still slow in that you have to have soome sort of a board position before you can play him, and in that he is 5cmc.

As for savage... Fun beater, good protection for mycoloth or w/e beater you want to use in a fungus tribal, though for mycoloth i do prefer Sporeback Troll (esp with utopia mycon out) but.... Porque no los dos?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
