Arachnogenesis Discussion

Mana dumps that come to mind: Ant Queen, Hydras like Hydra Broodmaster, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Moonveil Dragon, Commune with Lava, Wurmcalling ,Sprout Swarm

Other potential adds: Champion of Lambholt, Dragon Mage (You should be able to dump your hand with all the mana), Fierce Empath (to grab hellkite charger), Pyreheart Wolf, Vigor, Disrupt Decorum , Dolmen Gate, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , Arachnogenesis, Artifact Mutation

Safe attacking. Sometimes you want to attack, but they got too much stuffs Winds of Qal Sisma, Soul of New Phyrexia//Stonehoof Chieftain

"Out of combat" wincons. Assuming you can go infinite with Aggravated Assault there is still a chance they have they can block you and not die. So add some of those safe attacking cards plus creatures like Hellrider

Tooth and Nail just feels AMAZING when you Entwine it and just smash Hoofdaddy against your opponents. Also another cute token/Fog card would be Arachnogenesis, no one expects it and it protects your butt from flyers if you have a flyer heavy opponent.

Sorry for the delay in my reply! I haven't had as much time to actually sit down and mull things over as I'd like, although, trust me, I'm very much appreciating your discussion and review of the deck, so thank you for taking the time!

I think the high cost and restrictive speed of Spider Spawning makes it a pass for me, but that has made me consider Arachnogenesis in it's place....

Additionally, I think you're right. The few times I've pulled (and been in the position to play) In Garruk's Wake it's always been very heavily win-more. While Cyclonic Rift is temporary, I believe it's Instant speed and cheaper cost, and niche early-game use, outweigh that and fulfills the role well enough on it's own for now.

I've been getting huge use out of Sire of Stagnation as it either stalls out my opponents, or ends up feeling like an additional Consecrated Sphinx depending on how my opponents play, both of which are ideal for this deck! Whether on-curve or rezzed I've never felt like I've NOT wanted to play it.

Lurking Predators, on the other hand, has been a bit of a let-down. I figured "Hey, if it sticks it guarantees at least one activation", and in general I just love the card as a whole, but it's just never felt worth it's cost or the slot in the deck, and I plan on replacing it soon- the trick is just with what!

Lastly, another edit (that may just straight up be for Muldrotha on release) will be the removal of Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. While I loved the idea of having all 3 Praetors in the deck (I started playing Magic during SOM, and therefore have a huge love for all things Phyrexian), good ole Jin is just not pulling his weight- there's plenty of other draw sources in the deck and he's just always felt clunky. I feel like replacing him with Void Winnower for a 9-mana Birthing Pod slot but I haven't pulled the trigger on the replacement yet.

I pretty much with everything Suns_Champion said.

Vedalken Orrery is INSANE in creature based control decks!

Some top deck manipulation I like are Ponder, Condescend, Crystal Ball, Preordain, Foresee and Telling Time.

Soothsaying, Mirri's Guile, Sylvan Library and Gilt-Leaf Seer are repeatable options to look into.

and for S's and G's Arachnogenesis is a fun little Fog like ability that can really change the flow of the game.

Also why not run Halimar Depths?

I love the idea of the Spider tribal, but there are so many weak cards you would have to use... You could add Arachnogenesis and Spider Spawning for completion.

You could consider changing commander to Doran, the Siege Tower as honorific spider lord to capitalize on the spiders' high tougness, you would have access to two additional not too bad spiders (Ancient Spider, Pale Recluse) and stuff like Wave of Reckoning and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice

Arachnus Spinner (+Arachnus Web) is a badass spider I always wanted to run.

Four of your cards create tokens and another for of your cards place +1/+1 counters on your dudes (not counting Reyhan), Doubling Season and Hardened Scales are underused in this deck. Those cards are amazing when the whole deck is built around counters or tokens.
