You can try adding in a Silklash Spider for some creature removal tech, or Somberwald Stag . Hammer Mage is also some spicy Nikiya tech that no one really knows about yet.

Hope that helps!

I have a few Graverobber Spider cards already. I have considered sticking him in the deck, but I already have him in another Golgari deck of mine. I don't particularly care for Dragonlair Spider because it isn't modern legal. I'm sure my play group would still let me use it, but I think it might be a bit too strong if it's banned even in modern. I haven't seen Silklash Spider before, though. I'll have to think on that one. It definitely has potential.

I recommend Whiptongue Hydra, Arbor Colossus and Silklash Spider as great beaters that shore up the weakness to flyers.

Change Log:

(-) Sylvan Primordial due to illegality

(+) Silklash Spider to give more flyer defense.

Jagged-Scar Archers performed quite well shooting down Kaalia of the Vast last night, so it remains in the deck for now. But I strongly consider Fierce Empath instead of Lys Alana Huntmaster. Huntmaster is a bit slow and you paint a huge target on your back by overextending to the board. Fierce Empath on the other hand gives you a good draw for next turn and with fierce into Woodland Bellower you are even able to tutor for a relevant elf. I am going to playtest with Silklash Spider but at that point I am not sure which card I should cut

Fierce Empath wouldn't be bad, actually. It gets 3 very relevant creatures in your list. You might consider Woodfall Primus as another target.

If flyers are major players in your meta, you might take a look at Silklash Spider or Tornado Elemental as well. I might be talking myself into running Empath now...

Oh man, I don't even know what to say. I've got a Gitrog in the works, but besides a Crucible of Worlds, I can't even go near this budget with ideas.

Apocalypse Demon is a great 1v1 response to flyers for me. Silklash Spider is a good mass removal, especially with so much mana accessible. If you have some snow covered land laying around, maybe Whiteout? My budget solution for at least slowing down the flyers in my meta is Watcher in the Web with deathtouch attached.

What I am doing that works though, the nastiest control aspect in my deck, is Tainted AEther. I love this in Gitrog for controlling things once I'm set up, or close to set up.
