Deck Details & Information
SI-Noxus deck centered around summoning and buffing multiple Spider cards to commit strong and unblockable attacks thanks to Fearsome (and often also Challenger) keyword and/or having too many units on your board for your opponent to block them all.

As always: Suggestions may not always be followed, but will always be listened to.

This Decklist is very nice.Thank you for that. The only thing I struggled with is that i dont see the point of Rhasa the Sunderer and Scuttlegeist. I mean yes they are very neat but as a aggro deck, I miss most of the time the last 3 or 4 damage to deal to the opponent and then they stabilize. So i switched those out to put in 2x Decimate and I must say that they win me games like 70% of the time.

Could you explain yourself a bit better, please?

My deck has 40 cards, otherwise the Deck Builder wouldn't even allow me to save it.

So i tried to play some Elise decks before coming here and my main problems seems to be that I run out of cards to play because most of them are cheap Mana cards. What do you do about that?

es un mazo bastante bueno para atacar todo el tiempo el problema es que en late muere y mazos como el de teemo o de control pueden destrozarlo si no sale elise rapido en fin le pongo un 7

I created an account on here just to say how much I hate facing spider decks esp as a Naut/Mao main. My attempts to counter other people spiders (fire vs fire) didn't work well. Thanks for honing it in! This deck is slick.

Really great adaption to typical spider decks now that most decks want to keep things moving and last till late game. Noxian Guillotine is an excellect card to keep your mid game spike from hurting. This deck when played right can actually last in late game which is why its pretty good. I wouldn't put it in the same category as enlightened decks at all. But it's better to have a versatile deck then to only depend on turns 1-5.

I still think the deck has some issues, especially against Anivia, MF/Quinn or Yasuo decks. I know it is RNG based, it is REALLY important to have an Elise on the first 3 turns of the game, but having a lot of units with high dmg and no health is quite a problem against some decks. I think some Phantom Prankster or Neverglade Collector could be a good way to apply more pressure mid game.

I'll reply to your comment point by point, as it is actually a quite interesting one:

1) "AOE damage" of any kind is the main weakness of this deck, not only Anivia or Yasuo with Intimidating Roar (not really sure why you mentioned Miss Fortune and Quinn here though), but also Twisted Fate's red card, Leveled Jinx's Super Mega Death Rocket!, The Box, Make it Rain, Death Lotus or Chempunk Shredder. And although there's nothing that can be done to save the little spiders, it's possible to replace the dead ones with Crawling Sensation or even use them as "fuel" for Fresh Offerings.

2) As some of you have already pointed out in your comments, Elise is obviously both the "boss unit" and the easiest win condition of the deck, but not the only one. For example, Vilemaw is perfectly capable of closing up games too, being a real threat that's very difficult to deal with if summoned in rounds 3-6.

3) It is true that both Phantom Prankster and Neverglade Collector combo very well in this kind of deck, to the point that Riot (correctly) includes them both in their own Arachnophilia expedition archetype. They're great to end games in those situations when spiders have already attacked and the enemy Nexus is left with very few HP. The problem here is that both of them take out one slot in the board that could be used by any spider, and as you can see and read in my Details section, I prefer to have a board full of spider cards alive and buffed to attack.
