@seshiro_of_the_orochi: I've tried Taurean Mauler before! However I've prioritized creatures with evasion (like Trample or Flying) as everyone seems to have chumps to block. If it does not have native evasion, it should provide other abilities or benefits. In this case, I replaced Taurean Mauler with Dragonlair Spider so that I'd have chump blockers of my own.

Hey, nice changes, Xenagos is a hell of a fun card. He's especially good as the Commander of a deck with Greater Good :)

Now that you have Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket consider Nature's Lore or Farseek replacing Rampant Growth ? Lore or Farseek is good land ramp because it can search for a Forest dual land, much better than Growth. Cinder Glade is another Forest dual land to consider for the manabase.

Dragonlair Spider , Hanweir Garrison and Ant Queen are budget creatures who are sources of tokens. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Xenagos, the Reveler are Planeswalkers who won't break the bank are sources of tokens. Another direction to consider since you added both Rabblemaster and Warboss is adding Krenko, Mob Boss . Krenko can be a source of lots of Goblin tokens.

I would replace Garruk's Packleader with Beast Whisperer .He costs one mana less and works with all creatures not only the strong.

I think Dragonlair Spider fits in very well with your commander's theme.

Your temperatures are usually very expensive (because they are strong) so I would add a little more ramp and maybe something to get them back from the cemetery. The two cards I can imagine with you thereby quite well: Genesis or Traverse the Outlands

Also I like the idea of dragonb0y777 pretty much

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.

Heavy blue invites playing Carpet of Flowers but that sorta depends on how many colors in addition to the blue. Skullclamp only kills your elves really, might be worth putting in a Craterhoof Behemoth package in case the one hit wonder doesnt work out. Dragon Broodmother and Dragonlair Spider are my favorite gruul cards for that

Hey juiicyfruities, thanks for the feedback!

I like Coat of Arms too, but the meta I mentioned in the deck's description is other tribal decks. So unfortunately, that card will help all the opponents out just as much. Thus, I like Vanquisher's Banner much better. But it competes with Ishkanah's CMC and I'm not sure what effect I'd take out for it. Any suggestions on what to take out?

I tried out Spider Spawning , but it never worked well. I don't run enough creatures to guarantee more than a couple in the graveyard.

Dragonlair Spider is one of the best spiders, but the tokens aren't spiders, so they don't synergize with Ishkanah's ability. And the double red in the cost is more difficult to simply splash for.

I'm going to try the Arachnus Spinner + Arachnus Web combo. I'm just not sure what to take out for them, though. I have to be careful to keep my card types balanced for Delirium, and my current creatures and enchantments are must-haves! Since I churn through so much of my deck and can easily get the Spinner out of the graveyard, I'm thinking of adding just 1-2 Spinner and 2 Web. We'll see how that goes.

I personally like Coat of Arms for tribal decks. It might be worth running since you also have Arachnogenesis in here. It would be made even better if you ran Spider Spawning . It might not fit perfectly flavor-wise, but it makes your creatures so much stronger. You might alternatively consider running Vanquisher's Banner and Reliquary Tower . Arachnus Web is on theme and is decent conditional removal; it's made much better if you run Arachnus Spinner with it. You could also splash red and add Dragonlair Spider . It doesn't create spider tokens which is unfortunate, but the card is strong.
