smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.

The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

Another hydra you could be using is the Managorger Hydra. It's a that gets bigger anytime a spell is cast. It gets out of hand super quick, especially when put together with Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor. Also you could be using Basilisk Collar, or Bow of Nylea for deathtouch and the bow does other nifty stuff too. Reverent Hunter is a cheap quick monster after you get some devotion built up.Fog, Titanic Growth or Blossoming Defense should be in your sideboard. My last suggestion, is to playtest your deck with Nissa, Voice of Zendikar get a token off first plus, then sack Nissa in the next two turns to make your monsters bigger.

Looking good! Great start. I do have some suggestions:

Bident of Thassa or Coastal Piracy for card draw (a Thought Vessel wouldn't hurt either)

Some cards that would be good to buff creatures or for control would be Nylea, God of the Hunt, Thassa, God of the Sea and Bow of Nylea. I think Bow of Nylea would be especially good because not only does it give your creatures deathtouch, it is also extremely versatile. Beastmaster Ascension would also be fun, especially considering it has dropped significantly in price.

Tutors are always a nice thing to have as well (Worldly Tutor and Mystical Tutor), if you'd like.

Strionic Resonator would be great for when your creatures enter the battlefield and you can put more +1 counters on them.

Great deck!

You should find room for Mimic Vat. Great with Paradox Engine and Seedborn Muse plus your ways to ramp. Also, a way to benefit from all the resources you are giving your opponent.

You mentioned wanting both creatures and ways to control your opponents. What about Sunblast Angel?

Bow of Nylea could be something flexible to search up with Captain Sisay

Lightning Greaves should be in there. i would personally take out veridian longbow for it. i feel like you need some more ways to possibly pull creatures out from your grave maybe throw Meren of Clan Nel Toth tutor it and slap a greaves or swiftfoot boots on her or Palace Siege and Necromantic Summons. a really good card draw one is Deathreap Ritual. you also could really use mana ramp you can use Cultivate, Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth, Peregrination, Kodama's Reach are some. a few others that are good Tempt with Discovery and Collective Voyage. Pox is a fun one in decks like this.Liliana Vess is good for hand disruption and tutoring.Bad Moon, Gaea's Anthem, Hall of Triumph for counters , Seal of the Guildpactcheaper cost, Bow of Nylea, Caged Sun would be good also. just some things to think about. like the deck looks fun.

Both Wind Shear and Whiteout are illegal in Modern, haha.

I own Bow of Nylea, and it's nice, but I didn't get much use of it while I was testing it on this deck.

And finally... Second Harvest is a card I did not know existed and wow I do need to get my hands on a couple of those!! Thanks for showing that to me!! I did extensive research on token creators when I built this back in 2015, but some times the new cards slip right past us.

All very good points. I always forget how quick the modern format is supposed to be, and how stupid a lot of blue cards are.

I'm not a big fan of Growing Ranks myself because it is so slow, but it's there. Doubling Season is just way too expensive, and since you're not using +1/+1 counters at all, you're right that it's not worth it.

As for Bower Passage, now that I know you're wanting better defense against flying, might I suggest Wind Shear? Since most flyers that early in the game should all be 3/3 or 4/4, that could be enough to let your Saprolings kill them off. Or if you can get some Snow-Covered Forest, Whiteout could work too, and one mana cheaper.

Bow of Nylea can be nice, making your tokens that much more ferocious, plus you can activate it to damage flyers.

Lastly, a card I completely forgot to bring up in my last post is Second Harvest. For four mana it doubles your tokens, so maybe it can help?

A few cards to consider. Heroes' Podium is solid value, Myojin of Life's Web lets you dump all your legends at once, Day of Destiny just because, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship for spot removal + beat stick, Bow of Nylea for shuffling legends back into your deck.
