Adding the Fungus subtype would have really upped the flavor on this.

I wish WotC print someday a spider like Silklash Spider...spiders are a neglected art.

as far as spiders go it's actually pretty good. 3 for a 1/5 aint bad. I'm not saying it's good or original, but it's not bad.

I think spiders should have an added ability that says something like "When this creature blocks a creature with flying, that creature does not untap during their controller's next untap step." I think it would fit the flavor that spiders block flyers with their webs.

On this card, they could keep the mana cost the same, make it a 1/3 with reach and the new "spider web" ability. I don't know, maybe they playtested it in the past and found it was broken, but seeing as spiders are a lot worse when they aren't facing flying opponents, it would make them a more viable option, and wizards wouldn't have to keep printing cards like Plummet to allow green to have a viable answer to all of the powerful angels, dragons, sphinxes, and vampires that the other colors get to play with. Maybe R&D already tested a similar mechanic and found it too powerful, but I feel like green gets hosed when it comes to powerful fliers, in both offense and defense.

What this set needs is another spider. What power/toughness combinations haven't we done recently? 1/5? Okay go with that.

not a bad card. see Watchwolf's cousin- that GW for 1/5 Cat. almost the same thing, so its good.

"Good thing we remembered to print another green spider with reach!"
