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

This card is referencing Thallid, as well as Phyrexian Plaguelord.

Diachronos, you have never played a fun w/ fungus deck, if you have, you get seriously screwed

T1: Thalid
T2: Deathspore Thallid (1 counter on Thallid)
T3: Utopia Mycon, Thallid, Thallid Germinator, Deathspore Thallid (1 on deathspore, 2 on thallid)
T4: Sporesower Thallid, {lets say you went utopia and another deathspore} (2 on deathspore, 1 on deathspore, 3 on thallid, 1 on utopia)
T5 Sporoloth Ancient, you start dropping creature after creature after creature with -1/-1
turn 6 and on, more sporesowers is always good, but doubling season is nice, life and limb = ultra mana, verdent embrace is a good pump and will toss out many saprolings, Verdoloth the Ancient with life and limb, throw in timber protector to make your forest saprolings indestructable 2/2, eldrazi monument is a new addition, and can take the place of Akroma's memorial

and you just keep going till you say I wanna win now and go alpha strike with many huge indestructable, flying, trampling, haste, vigilant, first strik... (see all)

Alone-Useless. Built around-A horrible, horrible experience to play against. Fun with Fungus was the first deck I ever bought and this guy made that deck win. One of my favorite cards ever. You go, you crazy card-advantage machine, go.

I use four of these myself in a zombie deck, and my friends I've played hate them, especially if I get them synchronized to where I'm getting a Saproling every turn. Combine that with the bringing back from the dead cards I have, such as Gravedigger and Dread Return, I can usually keep them synchronized and keep my enemies from being able to do much against my zombies. Now if only I had a Coat of Arms for that deck.

Woah, there, Spike, chill out a bit. Tommy, you're an ass.

In a fungus token deck, this works wonders with grave pact! Sacrifice a few saproling to take down one creature and then make them sacrifice as many creatures as you your saproling.

I love fungus decks an have a pure sap/fungus deck with no other creature types except from zombie and shaman. FYI that's death spore and ghave for pll that don't know. But eny way this guy eats 70% of my friends removal and I could have 5/5's and fungus walls and they use five sources of removal before they get it. They hate this card because on turn 6 i can have complete lock down on all creatures and in multi player this saves me long enough for ghave parallel lives, mycon blade combo or the sprout storm one. I love hitting ppl with billions of saps made at the end of there turns whacking them on my turn....I do tin on other pols turn and I hate the silence on a creature card...dam that thing.....uag...

@Dingo777...you forgot to mention utopia mycon which makes it easy to splash other colors... making paradox haze a great card to have, and making saproling deck that much faster (that is, if you don't have doubling season, which i don't)

A problem I see with this one is that it takes way too long to get Saprolings into the field.

In a Green-Black deck, you could pair him with Sporoloth Ancient to put them out a turn sooner, and then you'd have 2 sources for Saprolings to sac.

Yes I always get Wraithed, especially during my turn, although usually its necessary since this amazing Thallid just cleaned your field. "Don't put him in a thallid deck" really? He is amazing if they don't kill him their field is usually constantly dead, if they do use the stack and kill their creatures first anyway, and the thallids just keep growing. True Tommy that is effective strategy, but if you don't put him in a thallid/fungus deck that has black in it, you're honestly an idiot. This guy is a powerhouse and he kills everybody's happiness, except mine, I like my field alive and growing while theirs are all dying.
