Hissing Quagmire Discussion

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~
If you can find it I definitely recommend buying a Swarmyard cause what's better than a land that prevents your dudes from dying?
Arachnogenesis Essentially a Fog with an added bonus of giving you a TON of spider tokens. Spider Spawning is also going to be a winner in this deck. Penumbra Spider gives you good value by making another token when it dies. Riptide Replicator is a fun artifact that can make spiders as well... and with all the tokens, a Parallel Lives and Second Harvest would definitely be cards to consider. Also a fan of the underused Parallel Evolution - it even has Flashback! Swarm them with tokens and then drop a Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces or the ever coveted Craterhoof Behemoth... or you can go the route of Overwhelming Stampede.
Silklash Spider would be a good powerhouse to pick up. It's effect can kill off any flier on the board.
There aren't any other specific "spiders" that are noteworthy, but there are always shapeshifters. My favorite "spiders" are Metallic Mimic and Chameleon Colossus Alternatively you can get a Conspiracy and just make your whole deck into spiders. Then when they all die bring them back with Patriarch's Bidding.
Spiders have especially large butts on them, so Assault Formation can really be powerful. Things that benefit from the high toughness of spiders should also be up for consideration. Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Abzan Beastmaster, Grim Contest, and Kin-Tree Invocation are ones that come to mind immediately.
For a more tribal feel I def recommend trying out Archetype of Endurance and Archetype of Finality as well as Brawn and Filth. Bow of Nylea could be used as an alternative to Archetype of Finality if you so choose. There are also tribal artifacts such as Coat of Arms, Urza's Incubator, Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies.
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?
- Deadbridge Chant is a personal favorite. Satyr Wayfinder, Crop Sigil, Grisly Salvage, Mulch, Grapple with the Past, Commune with the Gods, Benefaction of Rhonas, Sudden Reclamation. Stinkweed Imp or anything with Dredge. Golgari Grave-Troll is a popular one.
Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Lord of Extinction, Deathcap Cultivator, Deathrite Shaman, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Splendid Reclamation, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth. Did you mill a bunch of great cards you want back? Recursion is also a super powerful strategy. Eternal Witness is a Green staple for a reason. Greenwarden of Murasa, Seasons Past, Treasured Find, Animate Dead, Victimize. Sometimes you want to put specific things into the graveyard to fetch with recursion cards, so Entomb, Jarad's Orders, and Buried Alive become like tutors in a sense.
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!)
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 :)

clayperce, first off, thanks for the comment and upvote. The Jaddi Offshoot works surprisingly well, especially considering the two additional lands I run, including the set of Evolving Wilds and the two Blighted Woodlands, so it gets an A in my opinion. Now, for your suggestions.
Hissing Quagmire is basically there in a last-resort blocking scenario, or when I need to use it to close out the game with a few other creatures. Other than those times, I basically never activate it.
Regarding the flyer hate, I really don't see that many fliers at my LGS. Honestly, the last time I think I saw a flyer was blue/white flash in Kaladesh Standard.
Blighted Fen is an interesting thought. However, there always seems to be a throw away creature on my opponent's field whenever I've tried it out in the past, so it's kind of a turn off for that reason.

Please keep us posted on how it goes!

Looks great; big +1 from me!
I've been working on a Golgari brew; here's a couple thoughts based on my testing so far:
- Do you have room for Blighted Fen?
- The ability to recur Hissing Quagmire from the graveyard is just amazing. Can your manabase remotely support it as a 3- or 4-of?
- I've found weenie decks to be a really hard match-up, as they can chump block for days, and are just SO much faster. I ended up adding some Trample (from Rhonas the Indomitable, though I like Nature's Way too) and also going really big on Removal to make up for it. I like the idea of your Jaddi Offshoot in the sideboard though. How are they working for you?
- It seems like 25% (maybe even more) of my meta is Temur Energy decks (that were recently running Temur Marvel). I have no idea of course if pesky Thopter tokens and brutal Glorybringers will be a force in HOU Standard (and of course I have no idea about your meta). But you might consider some Flyerhate (e.g., Plummet or Ishkanah, Grafwidow) for your sideboard, as placeholders.

For Attune with Aether:
I disagree with taking out Creatures for Nissa, as they are the chief way you get . You are also now going to have more Instants, so less chance of Creatures.
I would do this:
If you find the you miss Grotesque Mutation you can slot it back in for something else, however most games should be finished before you need likelink.

It's cool to play Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord instead of Meren. He's less played as the Commander than Meren but share the same strategy. Like cklise said, check out Jarad's list on EDHREC.com It's full of cards other players use in their Jarad decks.
My friend as a Savra, Queen of the Golgari deck. He killed me a few times with Jarad, swinging Golgari Grave-Troll to my face. Lord of Extinction is similar too. You can also use Bonehoard.
Also, you should play more mana ramp. Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, etc. You don't need that much basic lands too, you can use more dual lands and utility lands. Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, etc.
