Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card may appear to have decent stat value, being 2/6 in total for only 3 mana. However, as both are 1/3 minions they trade poorly. This weak stat distribution has little impact on the battlefield as it can't trade well. In a matchup against regular 3-drops with at least three Attack, such as such as Twilight Elder and Earthen Ring Farseer, the enemy will immediately kill the Spider and deny further trading value.

However the two minions are sticky, plus work very well with efficient Attack buffs, such as Dire Wolf Alpha or Shaman's Flametongue Totem. Additionally for Evolve decks this card is notable as the Spiders are counted as 3 mana. For instance, playing Pantry Spider and Evolve costs 4 mana, but summons two 4-mana minions. Both are randomly selected, but in most cases the result will be better than you normally expect for 4 mana.

A slightly weaker but still strong combo is with Master of Evolution, evolving one of the two spiders to a random 4-mana minion.
