Ishkanah, Grafwidow Discussion

First off, thank you for your feedback!
I agree that Stormbreath Dragon's ability is not relevant, but I've had a lot of sucess with it as well as Chameleon Colossus. This is due to Path to Exile and Fatal Push being the most prevalent removal spells in the current meta (apart from Lightning Bolt). Even in the matchups where I don't want to see them they're still decent enough in my opinion. Since you stated that there are many better options I'd be happy to try out something else you can recommend.
I'm most likely going to get rid of Inferno Titan at some point.
Running less one-ofs would help with consistency, although I'm not entirely sure which creature I'm supposed to run multiples of.
Deadshot Minotaur is going to get cycled 95% of the time, but he's only good when missing a creature in the graveyard.
Ishkanah, Grafwidow is legendary and also too expensive to run multiples.
Which leaves me with Courser of Kruphix who I could maybe run 2 of (although you don't want both at the same time).

Is Ishkanah, Grafwidow worth it in this deck? I don't see anything else that would be producing spiders, so its ability would be paying 7 mana to make opponents lose 4 life. Besides that, it's just a 3/5 that makes 3 1/2s, which doesn't feel strong enough on its own. I like Angel of Invention or Grave Titan better, since they have relevant abilities in addition to generating tokens.

I think your deck suffer mainly from one thing, you have too much different card types. To reach the delirium, you almost need 4 different card type in your graveyard. For exemple, i suggest to replace Renegade Map by another Evolving Wilds.I'd eventually try to add 2 other Evolving Wilds to deplete faster your deck from your land and have more statistical chance to draw valuable card through the game.I'd just replace one Seed Guardian by Ishkanah, Grafwidow.Finally I'd add one or two Reclamation Sage or Conclave Naturalists to deal with some painfull enchant or artifact.
Sorry if my english is bad...

No worries! Skyblinder Staff is interesting ... I don't think I'd ever realized how little Reach is used, until you mentioned it. A guy in my group had been threatening to build an Ishkanah, Grafwidow Spider tribal deck ... but if it never materialized, the Staff could be really fun. And yeah, Prowler's Helm is solid. I actually used to run it periodically, whenever I felt the need for more Voltron effects.

Not sure why you have the Hex Parasite in there. I think Swarmyard would be perfect for saving those big spiders. Some slight changes will make it run smoother and be a good start. -2 Hex Parasite-1 Spider Spawning-2 Assault Formation-1 Ishkanah, Grafwidow-1 Lotus Bloom+3 Traverse the Ulvenwald+4 Deadly Recluse
