You should definitely play some infect cards like Glistener Elf, Phyrexian Hydra and Plague Stinger. Also, when the Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, Necroskitter combo pulls up, you're hard to stop. Try to get more of them.

Crumbling Ashes over the Banewhip Punisher if you choose to include it.

Generous Patron is sadly not legal in Modern. I was wanting to include her so badly in my -1/-1 counters deck..

SurpriZe: Yeah, there aren't really any other changes I'd make at this moment - I basically own everything I want barring the aforementioned lands, and the deck runs great. Some adjustments depending on meta, maybe?

I've tested Dusk Urchins, Crumbling Ashes, Grave Pact, and Dictate of Erebos - none of them did enough, so they got axed. Dusk Urchins was just a really inefficient way to draw, Crumbling Ashes frequently screwed me over when I was the only player with creatures out, and Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos didn't do enough without instant-speed sac outlets.

@Daedalus19876 Thanks for the answer!

Would you add all the "Pay 1 life" fetches, including the ones that only fetch one of your colors?

Also, are you completely certain you would've made no other change to the decklist at all, even if you had access to all legal EDH cards? Apart from foils of course.

And what do you think about Dusk Urchins, Crumbling Ashes, and Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos in this deck? Is there anything worth replacing for any of these cards?

I used Crumbling Ashes previously and I am in doubt whether or not to use it again here. A good card, no question, but what would I remove in order to add it? And will it be worth the change?

Thanks for the suggestions! I origanally intended to put Ishkanah, Grafwidow in this deck. However, I felt that her delirium ability wouldn't trigger often. Spider decks with Ishkanah are usually graveyard decks with spiders such as Nyx Weaver. I am not that fond of self mill strategies, hence I left her out. I definitely want to add Juvenile Gloomwidow as it synergizes with Obelisk Spider and is a great 2 drop, but I don't know what to switch out for. Crumbling Ashes is a great card but again, I don't know what to switch out for.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

You can have a lot more fun with this if add a few other cards, specifically something like Conspiracy to make everything a spider subtype. Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Frostweb Spider, Graverobber Spider, Juvenile Gloomwidow, Renowned Weaver, Penumbra Spider and Spider Spawning would be good additions to this. I'd also use Elves of Deep Shadow with your Llanowar Elves so you have another mana producer. You could also use Blowfly Infestation or Crumbling Ashes go with the -1/-1 counters.
