Is... is the rating low because people are juding based on the cards it can get on its own? I wouldn't care much if it couldn't make saprolings, that sacrifice ability alone is spectacular. Saprolings people, that #1 "I have a bazillion tokens" creature type. Rith/Ghave EDH all the way

Tommy9898: The art had the potential to give us some indication why this thallid is Psychotropic. Does it emit some kind of hallucinogenic ooze? Are the saprolings it produces coated in psychoactive neurotoxin (tiny poison-dart saprolings would be quite interesting, no doubt)? Maybe they should have shown us that. Granted, that's a bit of an artistic challenge, but otherwise, we simply have an oozing mutant pinecone laying about in the forest.

Maybe show it through a trippy kind of focus? Have some saprolings in the picture, with bright poison-warning skin?

Otherwise, this is one of the more useful thallid effects. Some of these gentlemen can be a little underwhelming, but this one has some utility. Card draw is certainly not a negligible effect.

My friend built a brutal Saproling deck that used this to draw his entire library in one turn if he chose. One with ten million tokens via Mycoloth by turn five on a good day. Somewhat annoying to play over and over, but always a good laugh when you just wanted good ol' weenie swarming.

The sac->draw ability can be used the turn it comes into play. In a saproling or fungus deck there's no lack of tokens to sac. No need to wait for the spores.

Comboes with Life and Limb.

This buddy here is a must in any saproling deck. Sure, your deck will prosper without it, but this guys provides DRAWING for green, which is vital when you have all the mana acceleration you need.

life and limb, my saprolings are forest too now, tap for mana, sac for draw

net cost, sacing a creature you should have a couple hundred of if played right

{Mycoloth} + This = Awesomeness.

Nice effect, but may take a while. If it can take one from another card it'll be fun though.

The art is so boring, I can't tell what it is or what is going on. Put this art on a forest and no one would ever know.
