My first thought was Thornbite Staff and Mitotic Slime.

This could work really well with Elves. Pull out a Nissa's Chosen then sac it with this to make your Joraga Warcaller and any elves buffed with Oran-Rief the Vastwood that much more deadly.

Not sure that's better than just, like, a Contagion Clasp, though.

okay, anything that gets counters for something dying makes his sacrifice cost useful

With all the various +1 counters in green I could see deck possibilities. Strength of the Tajuru still exists in standard afterall. Llanowar elves + Nest invader = This guy on third turn.

Consider him with awakening zone as well. Juicy little critters every turn for proliferation.

My only complaint is the P/T. I really feel this is a lot more entertaining as a 5CMC 5/4, or 4/4 even. That one point of toughness makes a whole lot of difference.

this card+two corpse curs is insane. that combo won me a couple games in the pre-release.

Why, is that an intruder alarm in a thallid deck? With a concordant crossroads and a utopia mycon? And did you just drop this card? Swinging with your infinite saprolling haords as you cast every card in your deck with mycosynth lattice and psychotrope thallid?

Use Nissa's instead. W/Nissa's chosen.

BFFs with Garruk.

Make a beast, Sac, Proliferate, ready to make another next turn.

No thank you, needs haste desperately. The reason i play Throne of Geth over this card is
1. No summoning sickness
2. {2} is much better than {3GG}
3. By the time i can cast this guy, i could've probably cast a Plague Stinger or Thrummingbird and had it connect a few times already.
4. Plaguemaw is susceptible to Lightning Bolt, sure so are Plague Stinger and Thrummingbird, but i'd rather lose a 2 drop than a 5 drop.
5. Has to compete with other great fatties in infect / proliferate decks for the +5-drop slot (Putrefax, Skithryx, the Blight Dragon, and Contagion Engine to name a few)

That being said, I'm sure he'll find his place in many token decks, as already pointed out he can be used to activate the ultimate of Garruk Wildspeaker the turn you cast him. I also enjoy the fact that he can sacrifice himself for the desir... (see all)
