Dragonlair Spider Discussion

PlatinumShadow It's a matter of spacing and priorities. Dragon Broodmother is a good card but it's just not good enough. Compared to the other options it just doesn't compare. Dragonlair Spider is similar. While they are good cards, i've found that the little tokens don't actually get any value and there are better cards to put into those slots. Giant Adephage is another great card, but I just don't have anything i'd want to cut from the deck for it.
Sandwurm Convergence honestly isn't as good as it seems. It looks like a fantastic card but i've found that it just draws a lot of hate and doesn't get the value I would hope for. It's takes up an entire turn to cast and very rarely does it last more than a round, if at all.
Regarding Rhythm of the Wild, I purposely didn't add any haste cards in the deck. Since Thantis already forces you to attack each turn, you often end up with few blockers. This gives me the time and options so I won't be forced to attack with creatures I don't want to. I very rarely want to attack immediately with Thantis. He just wants to exist and keep everyone at each others throats, killing their threatening cards and their weak guys they want to protect, while he keeps the life totals balanced and then swoops in for the kill. I just don't really want the haste and if I'm just using it for the +1/+1 counters it's just not worth it to me.
I hope you enjoy the deck and your games go well!

I would add some Domri, Anarch of Bolas to help with your mana, buffing your dudes, and giving you some interaction once those bad boys are down.
The curve is a bit awkward, I would take the opportunity to change up the creature base slightly so your turns have more presence. A great starter would be another 1 drop, Pelt Collector is sweet for that and fits your deck well.
25 lands is a bit much, I believe 23 to 24 is plenty, Kessig Wolf Run is awesome and always fun, keep that, maybe add a 2nd to make sure you see it more often? Don't be afraid to have some basic lands in there.
Eldritch Evolution can be super spicy and help you get some big dudes out, you might want to find space for Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Kogla, the Titan Ape, and or Surrak, the Hunt Caller, big fan of Surrak myself.
In regards to your Bloodbraid Elf. Gruul Spellbreaker is a far better target than Taurean Mauler and gives you more devotion to your Xenagos, God of Revels with those green and red pips. Also, Hexproofs you (yay!)

This looks pretty interesting, I like it. If you want to go deeper down the top-deck manipulation, Sensei's Divining Top seems to be good additions.

Ulasht is one of my favorites! There are many lines of play that you can take for powerful endgame plans, and you've got a lot of them in here.
Some changes I would make start with trimming down your mana curve. Your creatures are almost all haymakers. The way it stands, your gameplan is a bit too slow. I would begin by choosing a few big creatures that have the most impact and supporting them, cutting the rest. Avenger of Zendikar is a great card, but works better with a higher land count. Deus of Calamity has no immediate board influence. Same goes for Borborygmos. I do like Hornet Queen, Vigor and I would choose between either Dragon Broodmother OR Dragonlair Spider. Add in Craterhoof Behemoth, or, if that's out of budget, End-Raze Forerunners as a great win condition. Tendershoot Dryad is amazing, too.
Other important additions are mana dorks. They are the most efficient way to ramp into your larger things, while also making Ulasht bigger. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Zhur-Taa Druid, Radha, Heir to Keld all want to be in this deck. You're in green, so mana rocks not named Sol Ring or Mana Vault/Crypt can be dropped. Fecundity, too, as you don't have enough sac outlets to really garner a lot of value.
I would also say that your land count is low. Even with a bunch of mana dorks, you'll be mulliganning far more often than is comfortable. Add in a few more dual lands, or even basics, to smooth that out.
Hope some of this helps!

HI I like everything untill I saw your creatures and artifacts. I know this is casual. But there are a few cards here that are a bit of. And I think your build could do better with other cards. For example Dragonlair Spider isen't helping the strategy where a Oracle of Mul Daya really would help the strategy. If think if you focus more on the land bursting your deck will flow better with valakut.
But that depends if you wanna have your deck like that. Maybe you rather stomp with creatures instead. If so your deck should include Rampaging Baloths.

Hmmm, there are a bit of things you can add in as I tried playtesting it earlier and it definitely feels a bit clunky. Your goal is to make a lot of tokens and use them to kill people. You should focus more on value cards like i.e.
- Arasta of the Endless Web
- Ant Queen
- Bloodline Keeper Flip
- Dragonlair Spider
- Mardu Strike Leader
- Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
- Rampaging Baloths
- Artifact Mutation
- Tempt with Vengeance
Just to make some tokens while you are idle. And some kill effects like Triumph of the Hordes or effects like those. What is the main goal you want to do?
