Graverobber Spider Discussion

Graverobber Spider would be a good fit here I think. +1!

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.

Hmm. I like Sakura-Tribe Elder. I'm just not sure if I need it. It might be nice in the sideboard, I suppose. I don't absolutely need Abundance; I just like the card. It could easily be replaced by Sakura-Tribe Elder. I might go ahead with that. The card definitely fits well with the playstyle of the deck, but I don't think I'll run it in the mainboard. I'm not sure if you were specifically suggesting that Sakura-Tribe Elder replace Birds of Paradise, but I personally like the latter card more. But preferring the former is definitely a valid stance, and I'll be sure to at least list it somewhere on the deck. I think it's a little hard to gauge how useful a card is in a vacuum. I like the card because it provides an option to retrieve it from the graveyard if I'm mana-starved. I also agree that Bloodghast works well with Bone Splinters. I was actually thinking about that. It might be nice to have in the mainboard? Having 1x of it wouldn't be a huge issue either since I can always retrieve it with Traverse the Ulvenwald. And 'ackthually' I think Bloodghast isn't terrible in regards to undergrowth. I can always stick it in the graveyard and then retrieve it after I've put Ghoultree/Molderhulk out. I only really view it as counterproductive to Graverobber Spider which is only a 2x anyway. It's not a bad suggestion. I'll mull it over.

Would I really need 3x of Liliana, the Last Hope, though? That seems a bit excessive. I agree that Graverobber Spider is a little clunky, and its mana ability comes at a high cost. I mostly like it as a way to diversify the mana cost among my creatures, so I don't just have high mana cost ones and very low cost ones. It also has reach which is very nice. If I took it out of the deck completely, I would just have Abrupt Decay, Bone Splinters, and Fatal Push as ways to get rid of flying creatures other than just blocking. So I'm not sure that it's really worth to completely replace Graverobber Spider with Liliana, the Last Hope. I would maybe consider taking 1x of Graverobber Spider out to make room for Liliana, the Last Hope. Maybe I could take out 1x of Traverse the Ulvenwald and 1x of Graverobber Spider? How does that sound?

I totally agree with jesmister, to make space for Liliana, the Last Hope I'd also cut a Graverobber Spider. As he rightly says: "He seems slow and his ability is kind of costly"

But is needed at least 2x of it. So the best thing that comes in my mind is to cut all of them and put a 3x of Liliana, making it easier to get in hand or in the graveyard

This would reduce the number of total creatures up to 18 (from 21), but, since the spider isn't there anymore, you have no need to get tons of them in the graveyard, you just need a maximum of 7 of them (1 for the delirium's activation, 7 if you really want to easy cast Molderhulk). So cutting it could be a very good idea.

And, for Mulch, I also agree that it's a bit counterproductive for delirium

For the choice between Birds of Paradise and Stitcher's Supplier, I'd probably choose the birds if you plan to take out the spider and put in liliana, cause with it you could cast liliana on turn 3 instead of 4

Welcome to Tapped Out!

You can have a lot more fun with this if add a few other cards, specifically something like Conspiracy to make everything a spider subtype. Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Frostweb Spider, Graverobber Spider, Juvenile Gloomwidow, Renowned Weaver, Penumbra Spider and Spider Spawning would be good additions to this. I'd also use Elves of Deep Shadow with your Llanowar Elves so you have another mana producer. You could also use Blowfly Infestation or Crumbling Ashes go with the -1/-1 counters.

might i suggest Graverobber Spider. Obelisk Spider and Juvenile Gloomwidow might be okayish. Gloomwidow's Feast, Renowned Weaver, and Swarmyard might also be good for this deck.

For your Knowledge, Graverobber Spider is not legal in Animar, since it has black in its ability cost and is thus outside of the Temur color identity. Perhaps use Lighthouse Chronologist instead
