Because of their disconnection from the world above, an under-druid does not require mistletoe as a spell/powers component. Instead, they utilize a variety of fungi, many of a hallucinogenic nature. In fact, they are likely addicted to them, resulting in a somewhat addled nature. However, this also increases their sensitivity to the currents of the world around them, and they may cast an augury (as per 3.5) once per day.
Under-druids gain a +2 saving throw bonus against petrification.
Under-druids share most elements of the druidic spell list, except as noted below:
They do not have access to any weather-related spells, and plant-centered spells are substituted with either fungus/oozes, or stone.
