Silklash Spider Discussion

greaseball on The Art of Elf Reflection

I've found the best way to protect against a board wipe in my Marwyn build is to always have a bunch of cards in hand. Card draw on ETB or cast triggers like Vanquisher's Banner or Soul of the Harvest are great to load up on since you don't have to choose between building a board state and drawing cards the way Rishkar's Expertise / Collective Unconscious do. Also with the stupid amount of Mana you'll be generating with your general, you'll need to pack a ton of draw in your deck to not run out of gas.

I'd also swap out any non-elf creature you can for an elf if one exists with a similar effect since you essentially ramp every time you play an elf. So swapping out Silklash Spider for either Elvish Skysweeper or Jagged-Scar Archers might be worth considering. Also, I think swapping out some of the more situational cards like Seasons Past or Quest for Renewal in the deck for more cheap elves will give you more explosive turns and consistency.

I really like the idea adding of stax effects like Winter Orb and Root Maze in your build. I'll have to pepper some of those into my deck. +1 from me!

This is a pretty good start for your first commander deck! Possibility Storm could be cool here because it causes Ruric to trigger twice on every noncreature spell.

Personally I would make these swaps:

Treacherous Terrain --> Angrath's Marauders
Rampant Growth --> Gyre Sage
Cultivate --> Drumhunter
Leyline of Combustion --> Stalking Vengeance
Destructive Revelry --> Caustic Caterpillar
Colossal Majesty --> Garruk's Packleader
Pyroclastic Elemental --> Primordial Sage
Scorch Spitter --> Fierce Empath
Gruul Cluestone --> Yavimaya Elder
Tectonic Rift --> Jiwari, the Earth Aflame
Savage Twister --> Silklash Spider
From Beyond --> Gratuitous Violence

In attempt to minimise the extrem vulnerability of the deck to flying, I have switch Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Deathrender for Silklash Spider

You'll probably want a few ways to deal with flyers, maybe Silklash Spider and/or Hurricane ?

Rishkar, Peema Renegade seems like a good fit for this deck. And if you're facing a lot of flyers in your meta you could run cards like Hurricane or Silklash Spider or Sandwurm Convergence .

Silklash Spider can repeatedly wipe all flyers. It's a 2/7 reach boi that's also a Windstorm on a stick. Whirlwind would be another good option.
