"Fungus Shaman" translates to "Magic Mushroom"

As for the card itself, I can't think of ways to seperate him out from Pentavus except that its just sacrifice ANY creature. And yes, Skullclamp with this is a fair attempt to destroy basic morality.

@Splitzer, one way to separate him from Pentavus is the fact that using something like Sigil Captain or Juniper Order Ranger means that you can pay 1 and remove a counter, making a saproling that gets one or two +1/+1 counters, so you can pay 1, remove a counter from the SAPROLING to make another, and pretty much just repeat this until out of mana.

Sacrifice a Saproling, put a +1/+1 counter on Mycoloth. Sounds good to me.

Character Bio:
When monsoons devastated the land of Drakkus, the herds drowned and the harvests washed away. The humans there were forced to the fungal forests to find sustenance, and find it they did—in the form of the mycoids and their saproling offspring. What the humans saw as salvation, the mycoids called genocide, and they declared war on the invading mammals. Mages tore through the sporeborn troops with fire and steel. Only when the mycoid hero Ghave, Guru of Spores emerged did the tide finally turn. Gifted with mystic influence over the sporeborn, Ghave sculpted the fungal matter of his people into an ever-mutating army and reclaimed his forest home.

I am making my Saproling deck White, Green, and Black because of this card alone. Pair it up with Utopia Mycon and Doubling Season and you have an infinite mana/saproling combo.

"Yes, lord Guru?"
"There is an albino Namekian standing behind you... kill it like the rest."

He turns ALL of your creatures into Pentavus and Pentavites simultaneously, at 2 less CMC for the same size as Pentavus, he's an amazing enabler in a token/+1/+1 based deck.

For my combo of the day:
Spike Tiller
2: make a 2/2 land, put a +1/+1 on it; 1, remove the +1/+1: make a saproling; 1, sac the saproling: put a +1/+1 on Spike Tiller.
That condenses down to 4: target land is a 2/2 creature.

I agree with GrimjawxRULES, if it said spore counters instead of +1/+1 counters it would be much cooler (although probably broken in its current state)

Good yes, but not fungus cool/not really good with fungus decks, I am disappoint. All he can do is buff up your fungus, when I from my own personal experiences hate losing saps for any reason other than fungus abilities or protecting myself.

If I added him to my fungus deck, or as an EDH commander in my EDH fungus deck,

Ability one: completely worthless, other than himself, so what? He is 10 mana into 5 Saprolings? Lame

Ability two: I can sack fungus, which is bad, they do more work the longer they are on the field, turning one into a 2 mana Saproling isn't a good investment, I'm probably losing if I have to do that. I could buff fungus or other Saprolings, but when they start at 1 power... there is a reason it's called Sprout Swarm. Usually i... (see all)
