Arachnogenesis

Instant

Missing a few spider-themed cards... Llanowar Greenwidow is the newest spider to be printed (helpful for the self-mill subtheme of spiders). Don't forget about Ettercap and Drider if you're just trying to collect 'em all.

It's a little costly for a fun/jank deck, but Arachnogenesis kicks up the spider theme a notch. I put Eaten by Spiders and Curse of Clinging Webs in my spider deck since there are always creatures dying and always flying creatures to kill in 4-player games.

Assault Formation and Sight of the Scalelords can help close games, even if the art isn't specifically spider-themed. (I would pay money for alt-art proxies that had these with spider-themed art tho...)

Finally, you need some lands for consistency... since this is a budget deck, consider Jund Panorama, Savage Lands, Foreboding Ruins, and Game Trail.

I played a proxied copy of this deck running Sliver Overlord at my shop last night and had a blast! My buddy dropped Craterhoof Behemoth a turn after a major Avenger of Zendikar drop. I responded with Arachnogenesis to prevent his win. Next turn I played Mirrorweave and turned my 15 spiders into 98/98 hydras and smashed the board. This deck is fire! I'm going to try out Tiamat next time to see the difference and catch them off guard since they'll be looking for the Sliver O.

Might I suggest Obsidian Battle-Axe? It equips to Tahngarth for free,gives haste and puts him directly at 7 power.

In my own Minotaur-Voltron (Momo: Twice the horns, twice the fun), I really like Key to the City. Also, Helm of the Host seems like it could do some ridiculous things in here. Another idea as you're already running Arachnogenesis: Obscuring Haze is surprisingly cheap.

Some thoughts:

  • Arachnogenesis, Curse of Clinging Webs, and Mana Web are all not Modern legal, so need to go.

  • Your mana curve is waaay too high. You should be aiming for your average cmc to ideally be around 2, but certainly no higher than 2.4. Yours is currently at 3.38, which is going to lead to some very slow and clumsy hands/draws. In particular, a Modern deck typically can't justify running more than 4 cards costing 4-mana, and run nothing above this cost - you have a whopping 15 cards costing 4-or-more mana, which is just waay too much.

  • To compound the issue above, you have almost nothing to cast on turns 1 and 2. This means you're very likely to be starting the game at-least 1 turn behind your opponent (if not two) - which is pretty disastrous. I would heavily suggest getting a bunch more 1-and-2-mana cards into this deck.

Fantastic brew, I've never seen an Arahbo deck with Kaheera in the loop so this is really neat. I have some card suggestions but you may have thought of these before. I typically don't play Selesnya either, but there are some real bangers that change games IMO. It just depends on how specific you want the direction of the deck to be, since I see you like running enchantments and instants as your pump instead of equipment.

Defense of the Heart a creature tutor, that yeah, depends on the opponents board but completely changes the tempo of a game.

Hunting Grounds filthy if you find yourself with the Threshold trigger early.

Heroic Intervention solid protection

Arachnogenesis more solid protection

Akroma's Will provides indestructible and more--a flexible card

Return of the Wildspeaker is pump or card draw

Congregation at Dawn nifty tutor?

Berserk nasty pump

Other pumps:

Unflinching Courage basically a second Armadillo Cloak

Unquestioned Authority pro-creatures!

Shield of the Oversoul filthy

Again, I'm not saying all of these should go in--just suggestions that popped in my head while looking at your list and cards you may have very well thought if already. Great job with this--I think Arahbo in particular is a great commander!

Ardees, I am still wondering why you called Arachnogenesis a "cheaper and better replacement" when it cost two thirds of this entire deck.

I'm assuming if someone plays Rest in Peace/Dauthi Voidwalker then I am alr screwed unless I draw into enchantment hate or one of my major win cons pretty quickly. Arachnogenesis is $30-40 card and will probably end up creating many less spiders than Spider Spawning(Btw as I said before, they aren't meant to be blockers. They give me exp counters and sac triggers). I have alr considered adding Protean Hulk and have alr determined that I will add it but I am just finding a card to swap it in for.
