I really like the idea of this deck, but I feel like there are a few things that this deck has that slow it down. To start, I don't know if this is just a budget deck that you wanted to put together or if it is a deck that you want to legitimately see lots of play. The advice I'm giving is to help push the power level of this closer to high performing and top tier decks in the format, ignoring the cost of any of the upgrades. I feel there are too many 3 drops all together, I really dont feel Graveblade Marauder is any good. It feels really slow and while deathtouch is nice upside for it, it just pales in comparison to the other 3 drops of the deck. I get trick you want to do with Misthollow Griffin, it looks fun and it looks like there is loads of synergy with it and your deck, but, I think including the card is taking away from other possible includes or completed playsets of cards that aren't in the deck. Your mana base tells me that this is a budget deck, but if you want it to perform better, Opulent Palace, Yavimaya Coast, and some number of basic lands should be cut for fetch lands and shock lands. The other part why I think this is so important is that it would help you trim down your deck faster and it allows you to get to your good cards faster and more reliably. Another thing, it also allows Hedron Crab to be double triggered in one turn. I think the removal package is incredibly slow, considering that all of your removal spells, your 2 Autumnal Gloom, and most of your creatures are all 3 drops. This can make your deck incredibly clunky if you get low lands hands. Another suggestion is to find cheaper alternatives to some of your 3 drops so that the deck can overcome some clunkyness. I think a card that slots perfectly in the deck is Dryad Arbor that can be fetched for if you need a land, it can also be exiled to cast Skaab Ruinator, it generates zombies with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, etc. Grisly Salvage can be used as way to semi-tutor cards while filling the graveyard. Grim Flayer can be used as a faster and stronger version of either Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. A couple Search for Azcanta may replace Autumnal Gloom. Even a few small and cheap changes could just be to slot in 1-2 Murderous Cut for Putrefy, Thought Scour as additional self-mill, and Grisly Salvage for better consistency could go a long way. I hope some of these could help you. I also hope all this didn't come off as me try to take over your deck idea. Not every single part of the deck needs to be changed and I think you have a good starting place for a deck that could be something even more explosive.

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.
