Thantis, the Warweaver Discussion

I recently had this with Thantis, the Warweaver. It can't be seen as it's part of the foiling, but her whole body isn't foil, but the web and her eyes are, so when you look at the art from 45 degrees, her eyes stare at you from the dark. Such beauty!

Thank you guys for all the suggestions, I've decided on three to do next: Arahbo, Roar of the World, Shattergang Brothers, and Thantis, the Warweaver!

Thantis, the Warweaver - similar to others above. Just make sure tutors don't have the combo temptation. Oath of Druids is one of the best cards ever

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Arasta the spider queen?

1 month ago

I'm running a 60-card casual spider tribal. For that deck, I'm heavily looking forward to Arasta. The finisher in my deck is definitely Ishkanah, Grafwidow , and I really think that she should be the spider commander as well. Arasta is the second enchantment creature spiders have, which makes triggering Ishkanah's delirium even easier. With her at the helm, you have access to the more powerful spiders, and you can even include Spider Spawning .

In this hypothetical list, Arasta could be a pseudo-stax-piece in that she makes removal spells a 1 for 0 for you opponent.

If you want to be a little fancier, you could instead play Thantis, the Warweaver as your commander and combine Arachnogenesis , more Fog spells, a Seasons Past recursion package and cards like Warstorm Surge and Impact Tremors for one hell of a spider deck. This way, Arasta's ability matters more in that your opponents have to consider if their next spell is woth the damage.

That actually sounds pretty cool...I gotta remember this for the future.

DrukenReaps on I need a token deck...

1 month ago

So I really want a token deck but I cannot decide what the commander or colors should even be... I've had a few ideas.

Superfriends using walkers that make tokens. I had thought to use Thantis, the Warweaver for this because that seems fun/funny to me. However the value just seems too slow to make swinging in with tokens a viable win-con.


Creatures that make tokens on ETB. Then use an aristocrats style strategy to repeat their entry, likely use something like Whisper, Blood Liturgist for the commander or use Yarok, the Desecrated to double up on their ETB.

What stops me is that I have a ton of token support in white and none of those include white... I finally got a Doubling Season too so I almost feel like I have to have green. I'd also like it if the actual win-con was turning a million tokens sideways...

I did get my order of the 4 brawl decks today and I've been looking at Alela, Artful Provocateur but I just don't see her making enough tokens to win with them. Also no doubling season there seems wasteful of the card... I'm probably just too attached to the idea of that stupid season.

There is also Siona, Captain of the Pyleas recently spoiled for the new set who combines wonderfully with Shielded by Faith to go infinite. Something I always love doing. Are there some ways to easily abuse Alela like that too?

I'm open to suggestions though I might shoot every one of them down. I'd rather not have another deck in the colors I already run which rules out the following:

Thank you for letting me waste your time :)

Gleeock on How fast are commanders figured ...

2 months ago

Depends on how linear & synergistic the commander's abilities are. With Feather, the Redeemed - I'd say figured out in a day. For Thantis, the Warweaver - Not sure there will ever be a "figuring out" :) This is why I am most in love with low synergy commanders, who have no "paint by numbers" strategy stapled on.
