Dragonlair Spider Discussion
1 week ago
I have a few Graverobber Spider cards already. I have considered sticking him in the deck, but I already have him in another Golgari deck of mine. I don't particularly care for Dragonlair Spider because it isn't modern legal. I'm sure my play group would still let me use it, but I think it might be a bit too strong if it's banned even in modern. I haven't seen Silklash Spider before, though. I'll have to think on that one. It definitely has potential.

Act of Treason , Larger Than Life , Dual Shot , Moment's Peace , Kamahl's Druidic Vow , Giantbaiting are all cards i would remove, in favor of creatures.(see earlier comment), as well as Dragonlair Spider , Savage Ventmaw , Wolfbriar Elemental , and Tilonalli's Summoner

Heavy blue invites playing Carpet of Flowers but that sorta depends on how many colors in addition to the blue. Skullclamp only kills your elves really, might be worth putting in a Craterhoof Behemoth package in case the one hit wonder doesnt work out. Dragon Broodmother and Dragonlair Spider are my favorite gruul cards for that

Hey juiicyfruities, thanks for the feedback!
I like Coat of Arms too, but the meta I mentioned in the deck's description is other tribal decks. So unfortunately, that card will help all the opponents out just as much. Thus, I like Vanquisher's Banner much better. But it competes with Ishkanah's CMC and I'm not sure what effect I'd take out for it. Any suggestions on what to take out?
I tried out Spider Spawning , but it never worked well. I don't run enough creatures to guarantee more than a couple in the graveyard.
Dragonlair Spider is one of the best spiders, but the tokens aren't spiders, so they don't synergize with Ishkanah's ability. And the double red in the cost is more difficult to simply splash for.
I'm going to try the Arachnus Spinner + Arachnus Web combo. I'm just not sure what to take out for them, though. I have to be careful to keep my card types balanced for Delirium, and my current creatures and enchantments are must-haves! Since I churn through so much of my deck and can easily get the Spinner out of the graveyard, I'm thinking of adding just 1-2 Spinner and 2 Web. We'll see how that goes.

I personally like Coat of Arms for tribal decks. It might be worth running since you also have Arachnogenesis in here. It would be made even better if you ran Spider Spawning . It might not fit perfectly flavor-wise, but it makes your creatures so much stronger. You might alternatively consider running Vanquisher's Banner and Reliquary Tower . Arachnus Web is on theme and is decent conditional removal; it's made much better if you run Arachnus Spinner with it. You could also splash red and add Dragonlair Spider . It doesn't create spider tokens which is unfortunate, but the card is strong.

Some suggested cards by looking at your build:
Reclamation Sage - removal that you can recur.
Acidic Slime - ditto.
Ashnod's Altar - free sac outlet, ramp.
Beast Within - one of best removal spells in green.
Basilisk Collar - gains life, keeps opponents from attacking (death touch makes people weary of losing best attackee, and it becomes a board wipe with sharpshooter or thoctar - death touch, kill a creature repeat.
Below is a list of your non land cards and the role I see them in. I linked the cards that don't serve the end goal of going wide or comboing. I also high lighted cards that are either cost ineffective, or I found lack luster in my builds. Not recommending you cut them, just so you can look at them from another perspective. There are others that would be cut if needed to be more competitive and had the replacements.

I have a few suggestions.
I think in general you could use some more token support. Since your deck is already $400 I'm not going to hold back on the expensive cards, but I think you should consider adding these.
- Dragonlair Spider you have 3 opponents generally so this card does tons of work, I'd definitely move it to the main board
- Grave Titan just a awesome creature
- Craterhoof Behemoth Awesome finisher in any board based deck
- Triumph of the Hordes another awesome finisher for creature based decks.
I also think that some of your cards aren't great or don't compliment your deck well:
- Runaway Steam-Kin in general I think you don't have enough red spells for this to help
- Mer-Ek Nightblade,Ob Nixilis, Unshackled,Pir, Imaginative Rascal,Corpsejack Menace,Forgotten Ancient. Your creatures that sac a creature to give themselves +1/+1 are fine, but I don't think there are enough of them to warrant all of this support.
- Banefire,Bonfire of the Damned,Flameblast Dragon. In edh you only need a few X spells and generally the ones that hit multiple opponents are far better. You would be better off with just Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire
And there are a few cards I'd advise running just because they are so good
- Eternal Witness
- Phyrexian Altar
- Kodama's Reach
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier
- Vampiric Tutor
- Phyrexian Arena
- Purphoros, God of the Forge
- Impact Tremors
- Goblin Bombardment
But other than that your deck is pretty good especially for your first EDH deck. I hope these suggestions help!
