Deathweb Spider Card Review
Average card. 5 mana 4/6 with Lifesteal COULD be good in Warlock, but the thing is, it’s conditional. You need to take damage on the turn you play it, so if you don’t have a way to damage yourself on the board (like the Blood Witch), you have to combo it with Librarian on T6 or Life Tap on T7, which means that it’s not always a 5-drop. You absolutely don’t want to drop it without Lifesteal, as 4/6 for 5 with no upside is just bad.
To be honest, I think this card wouldn’t be broken even without the condition – if it just had Lifesteal. 4/6 for 5 with Lifesteal might be something to look out for two expansions ago, but right now it might not even see play.
Right now Warlock doesn’t seem to need more healing anyway. Given that it’s conditional rather than guaranteed, and that it doesn’t even work right away, I’m not sure that it would see play even if Warlock did need more healing. Possibly in some kind of Midrange deck that is too fast to play Dark Pact and such, but too slow to not need any healing? Maybe a deck built around those “damage yourself” synergies? Hard to say. But with our current knowledge, it looks really mediocre.
Card rating: 5/10
