Stab Wound Discussion
1 week ago
Dang it haha, yesterday when it updated it didn't show dark ritual as being illegal.
No I know how it works. Causes damage to the controller of the creature it's attached to (the opponent) whenever they attack or block.
Stab Wound would kill any creature with 1 or 2 toughness, or weaken them and cause damage every turn.

Crippling Blight seems weak in a deck that isn't highly aggressive.
I also question the inclusion of Doom Blade/Murder. Not only could they be replaced with Seal of Doom, most problems they solve are solved just as easily by Lignify. Since you already have a lot of targeted removal (especially if you run Blightcaster), perhaps it would be better to diversify into your favorite variant of Diabolic Edict, Geth's Verdict, or Tyrant's Choice?
I don't think it's optimal but you could also consider running Despondency as a way to keep those Constellation triggers coming.
Overall seems like a lot of fun!

Stab Wound is almost never left out of my decks that run black, mainly because its a win con and can also be removal.

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.
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.

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!

Hmm Fatal Push is out of my budget at the moment and so is Inquisition of Kozilek if I were to buy a playset of it. I was thinking of Ultimate Price or Victim of Night as a replacement for Fatal Push and Despise to replace Inquisition of Kozilek
