Almost completely eliminates the "...if enchanted creature's power is 4 or greater" downside of Arachnus Web. Even if it's cast off a powerful creature, like a Titan, just tap a Spider to re-web them next turn. Rinse and repeat. As long as you have enough Spiders to tap, you can keep almost any creature down for the count. Nifty!

Arachnus Web
Pretty cool, but costly, good thing it's green.

Where to begin... this card is awesome:
-Not overpowered
-Insanely flavourful
-Spider (so, huge defence and reach *Good For Green*)
-Great power for spider
-Green control (always helpful)
-Allows arachnus web to be played as an instant
-Even if the creature you target with arachnus web has a power over 4, the aura still effectively stifles its attacking for a turn before it is destroyed. This becomes significant considering it can be played each turn from the graveyard
-It allows spiders to block, then tap to play webs, blocking two oncoming attackers
-Supports spider tribal
-Epic fantasy Art
-Awesome and fruitful new mechanic of card dualism. (two specific cards working together)

Now we just need Deadly Recluse back.

This is a pretty good card. I see no true negatives to it, and all of it's generic spider bases have been covered (that being Reach and a high defense).

It's Toughness is higher than it's CMC, which is pretty good, although that really isn't a huge bonus in this time of MTG.
Obviously, it's main feature point is it's Nissa Revane-esque effect, but instead of getting a 2/3 elf with scry-like immortality (FYI I'm referring to Nissa's Chosen) you get a green Arrest that is a little weaker.

I guess you could also argue that this effect is better because you can do it more times than 1 per term.

Generally, it is a good card. Not Primeval Titan-like good, but Sengir Vampire-like good. I see no flaws. 4.5/5

Completely missed the "search your graveyard" part of it the first time reading through. That's a lot better than I thought it was.

Repeatable removal in green?
So amazingly happy.

Now there needs to be spiderfolk. And blue should bring back Homarids. Salamanderfolk....psh.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
