Any Arachnus combos?

Arachnus Spinner lets you put Arachnus Web from your library or graveyard as long as it's in either and you have the spiders to tap. Does this combo with anything? All could think of is constellation and Ramses Overdark (& Feast of Dreams) for recuring triggers/removal but that doesn't seem too exciting (especially with Ramses).

It may not be what you're looking for, but you can get another turn out of Arachnus Web with something like Sundial of the Infinite.

Confusion in the Ranks lets you steal enchantments. Ajani's Chosen makes creatures. River Kelpie sometimes draw cards. Doomwake Giant kills creatures sometimes. Eidolon of Blossoms draws cards. Skybind can flicker the enchanted creature, which could be good for synergies lol. Thoughtrender Lamia eats hands.

as MagicalHacker pointed out, your engine here is probably going to be Ajani's Chosen. So the combo would be:

Conspiracy (naming spiders), Arachnus Spinner, Arachnus Web, Ajani's Chosen and a sac outlet as well as one of the 2/2 cats to start the combo.

Tap the cat token (1), putting Arachnus Web into play targetting cat number 1. Chosen's ability triggers, getting a a 2/2 cat (2). Then just sac cat number 1 to your sac outlet (which provides the value in the loop).

clayperce: Eheheh no, that wasn't the angle I was looking for but thanks anyway. I guess similarly you could utilize the free tapping from the Spinner to enable e.g. Harvest Season without risking your spidies in combat.

MagicalHacker & enpc: Yeah this was more what I had in mind. It's too bad Ajani's Chosen isn't or Ishkanah could have utilize the combo (also, Skybind letting you e.g. temporarily remove blockers in exchange for tapping tokens is pretty neat).

I'm pretty sure that with Ishkanah, Grafwidow you just want Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar.

Outside of that, Bramble Elemental nets you saprolings whenever it's enchanted, however you need a way of either moving the enchantment onto the saproling or blowing it up without killing Bramble Elemental. You would have to use Nullmage Shepherd, Doubling Season and Parallel Lives to net enough saprolings to loop. And at that point It just feels like you're reaching really hard for very little gain.
