I love rares like this. Perfectly balanced, playable, and requires to be built around. Spiders are epic.

Combine with Quest for Renewal for some wacky shenanigans.

I do hope that Innistrad has more stuff for spiders. It would be a nice change from elves and beasties. Which don't get me wrong are fun, but some change would be nice.

I love playing this with Spider Spawning.

I wish it didn't say "attached to target creature"
For those of you who don't know, when an Aura is put into play without being attached, you attach it to an object it could enchant, without targeting it (303.4f). This lets you attach it to permanents with shroud, or your opponent's permanents with hexproof.

well it's obvious Innastrid will have zombies, but spiders do go well in a horror theme... maybe even a few more that aren't overcosted. Seriously spiders are like green drakes. And griffons are white drakes. You know they're just laughing to themselves when they create a spider, drake or griffon. Don't forget to make it overcosted! This and the deadly recluse, though, and that windstorm on a stick, awesome. Just need a couple more usable ones and we've got something

Now if only we had more cost efficient drakes...

in the future there should be a plane dominated by spiders because it is about time for some spider tribal. it think that some spiders should have an ability like this where X is a number and Y is a cost:

Y; Web X (put X web counters on target creature. at the end of it's controler's end steps remove web counters from it equal to it's power)

and then that spider (or other cards) has abilities like:

Creatures your opononents control with web counters on them can't atack or block

Creatures your opononents control with web counters on them lose flying

Creatures your opononents control with web counters on them get -0/-2

then spider tribal would be powerful b/c every new spider you play adds a new efect for the web counters.

also, am i the only one that thinks a set that is Phyrexian V.s. Eldrazi would be awesome

"-It allows spiders to block, then tap to play webs, blocking two oncoming attackers"

I'm sorry to tell you this, but I don't think that works. It's already been declared as attacking, so you can't really pacify it while it's swinging at your face.

For anyone who think that this spider can attached things that have evasion to Green or hexproof or shroud is wrong. Yes, your argument is correct that the spell arachnus web "Attaches" itself to a target creature, but you have already overlooked something very Important.

Rule Text for THIS card: "... and put it onto the battlefield attached to 'target creature."

This card targets a creature, and while Arachnus Web doesn't target a creature using this web, THIS card IS. That means, no prop green, no hexproof, and no shroud's can be attached with Arachnus Web. Not because Web is being attached, but because Arachnus Spinner targets HIMSELF.

Spiders are actually bringing control back. This allows for:
- Instant Speed Arachnus Web !FOR PRACTICALLY FREE! (No hand disadvantage)
- Can block an attack for 1 turn by tapping a spider (More if target creature is Power < 4).
- Continueless uses from Arachnus Web (Reached limit at 4? Get e... (see all)

Such a flavor win on top of such great CA. With additional spiders can completely dominate a board. 4/5

Pretty interesting, and great flavour.

The yugioh comparison seems a little unfair. Because you are targeting a very small number of cards, obviously at most 4, with the spider it would be downright terrible if you could only search your library! Imagine that, you could go through your selection of webs in just a turn or two. The way I see it, it states both graveyard and library because this seems only fair and balanced, especially considering the delicate nature of the web.

All in all this seems like a fun card. I'm glad, also, that a theme deck was made around it. Certainly adds an interesting twist on the standard "Beat your opponent into the earth with big green creatures" theme deck. 4.5/5 great design.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
