Ishkanah, Grafwidow Discussion
2 days ago
If you're playing delirium cards, Ishkanah, Grafwidow is pretty good.

I like the Kiora / GLorybringer untap abilty she has, so Glorybringer can exert every turn, so it acts like a constant grasp of darkness.
I will say, I love Ishkanah, Grafwidow, and am running this card to the bitter end.

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.

Even though it's not really important, you don't have a lot to do on turn 2, in terms of creatures, which can make or break your board. Maybe consider some 2 drops like Scrapheap Scrounger or Glory-Bound Initiate or some ramp creatures like Channeler Initiate or Servant of the Conduit that can help you drop Ishkanah, Grafwidow or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet earlier.

Possibly only run one of each of your beefier spiders like Ishkanah, Grafwidow and Arachnus Spinner? From my experience they're mid to late game creatures so it might be unlikely that you'll get to play 2 of them if your opponent has any effective removal.

Yes. Delirium is worded where it looks only for the card types, and not cards with different types. Ishkanah, Grafwidow for reference.

Ok. First off, you need more lands. You definitely don't have enough. Also, I think you should have a reliable way of getting stuff through. Bontu the Glorified is good, but you need more ways to exploit that, and Tattered Mummy, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, and Doomed Dissenter are definitely things to take out. From Beyond is too slow for a deck like this one. You want it to be more midrange-esque. Certainly Liliana, Death's Majesty needs to be taken out, unless you plan to put in more delirium-based cards, such as Grim Flayer, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Traverse the Ulvenwald, and Gnarlwood Dryad. Consider Emrakul's Evangel as well. Voldaren Pariah Flip should be a necessity. You need to put Bloodbriar in. I don't know why it isn't already there.

I think there are a few cards to reconsider. For example, Raking Canopy and Needle Storm are cards that damage flying creatures. Either you know that you're facing a deck full of aggressive fliers, or these cards could sit quite dead in your hand. On top of that, every spider has reach, so you can block flying creatures. Instead of Raking Canopy you could consider Gaea's Anthem to buff up your creatures and have a bigger chance of surviving a block against both fliers and non-fliers.
I would probably cut the Skysnare Spiders because their cost is the same as that of Arachnus Spinner except the spinner has higher toughness and a free tap the spider for a free enchantment effect. The second Skysnare Spider and maybe even the Sentinel Spider could be switched out for more Kessig Recluses. The vigilance is nice to have of course, but it is up to you to decide whether it trumps the deathtouch.
Consider also Cryptolith Rite if you want to get more mana out of your creatures, this can also help get you to pay the cost for Ishkanah, Grafwidow's burn effect if you either have too little lands or lack a source of black.
