Both uncommons, too. Fun times.

Reach and trample are two of the least synergistic abilities. One encourages attacking, the other blocking.

Of course, if this had vigilance like a certain other spider, the abilities would work perfectly together. C'est la vie, I suppose.

Spiders are one of my favorite tribes, and this one boasts spectacular art, but... That combination of abilities and that mana cost are off-putting. Reach wants me to stay back and block, but trample wants me to attack with that 5/5. And it's overcosted. Maybe they just forgot to add Vigilance? That would have made it so much better and more justifiable for a 7 CMC creature.

You know what they say: Jack of all trades, master of none. For way less than this mana cost, you could get an unstoppable attacker or an immovable defender. You shouldn't pay 7 mana for something that is trying to do both things at once.

Oh? Reach and Trample?

I think that's a first? It doesn't work, though.

Spiders, in general, have always been defensive creatures. Look at pretty much every spider in the game, and you'll see that they nearly all have more toughness than power, and when it doesn't, it's equal.

So, why would you add a solely aggressive ability like Trample to a staple defense creature type? I don't know, and I don't like it.

I don't think it'll be as valuable as Sentinel Spider in limited.

This actually screams to the player to give it vigilance.

It's not that the guy below can't see it. It's that he doesn't care. You live in Ravnica long enough, you see so many crazy-weird things that a spider the size of a building, that's reinforcing the architecture, just doesn't even register any more.

Playable in limited. Bad in everything else. Well, though it does give spider tribal decks another larger spider, so that's not too bad.
2/5

Maybe I'm just spoiled from having 3 months of Serra Spider in Limited.
I don't know.
2.5/5 for its Limited uses.

Throw on Vigilance and I would pick you in draft.
