It fights Baneslayer Angel and Sphinx and lives. Metagame tech. Early game you cycle it if you don't need it. Lategame when mana isn't an issue you just drop it and give sphinx/angel a headache.

Creatures with cycle love being in Living End and Living Death kind of decks. Throw in the banned Fluctuator and PWN! Cards like these are mostly good in limited and the occasional reanimate deck. The card's CMC is high because almost all cards with cycle have a higher cost due to the fact that they have.... cycle!

Tidus: Because it's seven mana. Many games, especially against red, end before you get anywhere near that. In the early game this is useless, so you cycle it to grab a card that might be more helpful.

I have fond memories of this guy with Spider Tribal; we would cycle with Nature's Spiral like crazy! Good times.

Gives Naya defense against flyers and can be cycled. A bit expensive, but I've got no real complaints.

This is one big spider! Good for being an attacker and/or blocker. High cost is a negative but at least it has Reach, which is always useful. And as for the Cycling, well...I guess that would be useful in a situation where you will lose on your opponent's next turn or two, and there's only one card that can save you. Good card in a spider-deck.

This is like Living End's version of Tarmogoyf, except it costs like $1,000,000 less and makes you look more creative.

I know this spider sucks, but I love him none the less. Something about this spider is cool, so I made an elaborate cycling deck with living end andfluctuator to play big junky fatties like him and Krosan Tusker in some kinda super-cycler deck.

vengeful rebirth is precisely what this card was made to work with. It is one heck of a combo. Throw in exploding borders and you've got yourself a deck.

Gigantic spiders are really cool but at the cost and low abilities, this guy isn't worth playing. Its rather unfortunate for me, I love giant arachnids. Mabye wizards will make a more efficint spider in the future.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
