Nyx Weaver definitely, and also Cloudblazer. The card advantage (and life gain I guess :P) becomes insane with all the blinks available to Azorious.

Thanks very much! I really appreciate the advice. I quite like the changes and will probably go through with them however, there are a few things that I may ask about.

I quite like Dead Weight. Seems to be more practical than Stab Wound. I guess I was enticed by the life loss bit a little too much

Sedge Scorpion may very well be the answer to my early game issues (tbh, I actually forgot about the existence of Sedge Scorpion) but as for Penumbra Spider, who should I swap out? Most likely either Sporecap Spider or Kessig Recluse?

For Vessel of Nascency, I can see how it pair up well with Ishkanah and I'll most likely swap out Duress or something with to put them in. As for Nyx Weaver...not too keen on that one. While I like how it speeds up Ishkanah's delirious and all, I feel I might end up cucking myself in the long run especially if I don't have a lot of Ishkanahs to play with.

I would definitely love to add Arachnogenesis in place of Terrifying Presence! But when I saw it's price tag...best I can do is probably 2. 3 if I somehow stumble upon a sweet, cheap deal.

You said something about the prototype being 'bad' in the related thread. I don't actually think so. You're doing many good things with your attempt. There are some things I'd change though:

Stab Wound seems cool, but if you use it as a removal (which you most of the time should do with cards like these), the life loss will never happen. If you want another cheap -2/-2, Disfigure or DeadWeight seems promising, especially the latter when you're planning on including Ishkanah (I#ll talk about her in a second).

Something you can compensate that a 'spiders only' build can't is the missing one drop: Sedge Scorpion is good enough for that slot. A card I really love in my spider list is Penumbra Spider. She basically has a better, but less abusable version of undying/persist, which is great as a defense option but also to outvalue your opponents. If you want to be more aggressive, Assault Formation defintely is what you want, and I see you already have it in your maybe board.

Regarding Ishkanah (I promised, and here it is): You want to get delirious as soon as you can. There are many useful cards for this. Removal like DeadWeight is great here, but I'd also suggest Vessel of Nascency as it usually puts you at least at three cardtypes in the grave if you play it turn one and crack it turn 2. You also do have Arachnus Web, which helps a lot with going delirious even before you can play Arachnus spinner. Another interesting option is Nyx Weaver. It does like a tripple duty in the deck: Helping you get delirious with both its triggered ability and its 'enchantment creature' type.

I'm not really sold on terryfying presence, but it definitely is a flavour-win. Maybe I suggest Arachnogenesis as a simillar, but more powerful fog spell?

Overall, good job!

I'd recommend Nyx Weaver. It fills the yard like Splinterfright while also being Treasured Find on a stick.

Endaarr on In Too Deep (Sidisi Zombie Tribal EDH)

Very nice deck, I like it. Some cards that might interest you:Empty the Pits, Wonder, Endless Obedience, Satyr Wayfinder, Prized Amalgam, Splinterfright, Nyx Weaver, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Splendid Reclamation. Always remember to keep the creature count fairly high, so that sidisi can reliably produce Tokens. Also, you should probably try to upgrade your manabase, get some painlands/scrylands/Opulent Palace in there.

I have some ideas, I don't know how relevant they are, but who knows!

Depending on budget, Oracle of Mul Daya is an all-star in most green decks.

Tireless Tracker makes (clue) tokens and loves the lands!

Raven's Crime can make draw triggers and keep the opponents hand low

Random, on color fetches if you can afford them, but they aren't worth it over other slots (about 1% thinning isn't relevant for a 30 dollar card)

Nyx Weaver is kinda nice for extra draws/selection if you're into that sorta thing

Deathrite Shaman is a 1cmc planeswalker, but exiling your own lands is medium.

Terravore is a little beatstick for 3 mana. Isnt exactly good with splendid reclamation, but that is an ok risk.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar makes tokens, buffs the ones you currently have, and gets splash value with the Avenger

first deck that comes to mind was Sultai Whip during Khans standard, with Nyx Weaver and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, reanimating stuff like Torrent Elemental and Hornet Queen... those were awesome games.

But the deck that got me back into standard after a long Collected Company drought was Cat Combo... I didn't know my love of eternal formats until that deck debuted. Got me into reanimator in legacy and combo EDH. I just loved how it played so differently from the decks I was always building and facing in standard. All about finding the most optimal combo timing instead of attacking with creatures or trying to remove everything. The mirror match tilted me though, it was back to grinding out a modicum of value instead of fun. :P
